"The Perfect Getaway!"

I had the absolute pleasure of spending my New Year here with my partner and my German Shepherd dog. The accommodation is first class and there is everything you need in a well designed and immaculately presented space. The owners are very welcoming (as is their lovely, friendly dog Cara) and made themselves available without intrusion. The surrounding countryside is amazing and spending New Year's Day at the coast with the dog was bliss!
I hope to re-book in the summer so that I can see Joy's gardens in all their splendour. I have recommended the Getaway to everyone I've spoken to since my return and do so again here.
