"Wonderful Cottage in an idyllic location."

Mia's Cottage was very spacious, clean and had everything you needed for a few days away.
John was very pleasant and helpful, he had the fire blazing for our arrival along with some fresh eggs that were much appreciated!
The area is remote and beautiful and all the beaches are accessible by travelling a short distance by car or bike!
The local neighbours were very friendly.
All correspondence and communication from the owner was excellent.
Thank you.
