Special Amenities

Beautifully landscaped garden, large lawns, children's play area. Weber barbecue. Set around established trees with lovely birdsong. Close to three amazing beaches. "We have just had a wonderful stay at Accrington and our only regret is booking only four nights. The photos don’t do it justice. This property is absolutely perfect for anyone wanting a break from the hustle and bustle of daily city life. The absolute highlight for us was the gardens- absolutely beautiful, with plenty of room, and play equipment for the kids. You are surrounded by trees and accompanying bird song. The farm house is well set out and great for families. The kitchen had everything we needed and there’s also a Weber barbecue. We would definitely stay again." - Lauren, January 2019.

We had an incredible stay at this place! The house was amazing, complete with all the amenities we needed. The decor was superb, and the rooms were spacious, making it a perfect choice for groups. The hosts were incredibly welcoming, adding a personal touch to our experience. We can't wait to go back and enjoy another fantastic stay!"

Beautiful home with lots of outdoor lawns and gardens for kids to play or dine outside. Lovely quiet pocket on the peninsula surrounded by farmland. Great for families.
Accrington is a fabulous place to share with family and friends. The beds were super comfortable too! This place has been very thoughtfully curated and situated in a beautiful garden! This is our second time visiting and we would love to return.
