"Exactly what we needed, relaxing, comfortable - perfect!!"
Captain's Cottage is ideal for a short break or a longer holiday. The cottage is beautifully decorated and kitted out with all the essentials plus some luxuries such as the wood burner. The attention to detail in the accommodation is fantastic and we couldn't have asked for anything else. We left feeling thoroughly relaxed and refreshed. The binoculars are a lovely touch.

"At the heart of the village, but secluded."
This was a great place to relax, very comfortable, easily managed and easy for the beach and the village, but very private when you want it to be. We may have been influenced by the fantastic weather but no complaints, and the owners were really helpful and friendly. Four generations of us from 5 months to 85 years were able to feel at home. The beaches are idyllic and it's very handy for the hills. Fridge could have been bigger as others have mentioned, but not a problem really when you get the hang of it. We'd definitely go back (if they'd have us) as it's a perfect halfway meeting point for the family between Manchester and Dundee.
