Gorgeous cottage, full of history and charm. Beautifully clean and well presented. The bed was so comfortable and with the luxurious linen it made it very hard to get out of! The cottage had everything you needed and the location was perfect with being so close to everything.
Definitely our favourite place to go in the Bay for a couples escape!
