A lovely small cottage in a superb location. Just expect peace and quiet and you will not be disappointed.
There is plenty of interesting places and shops to visit but locally there is everything within easy reach . Our pleasure was the magnifIcent views and the sails on the Solent.
Plenty of walking ang good food at local venues.
The shrubs in the garden are beginning to obscure the views from the patio but viws from upstairs are wonderful and we hope to go again
