Welcoming and cozy, very private with a great view.
I had a peaceful stay for 3 nights. Cathy was a wonderful host. Communication was very quick and helpful. Accommodation is so relaxing and the garden and sea views are amazing. A generous welcome basket was a great addition. Gorgeous personal touches made this a stay to remember. Thanks so much again Cathy.

Absolutely lovely place to stay - everything you would expect ie warm, clean etc but so much more besides. Including a lovely welcome hamper, bath robes and wonderful helpful hosts. The view from the deck was quite stunning, and as we were cyclists we really enjoyed being right on the peninsula cycle trail.
