From our guest book:
" We had a wonderful stay in this beautiful house. There are so many interesting and beautiful things hiding in the house which was wonderfully set up, there was everything we could want. Our children loved it & we had a very relaxing time. It was a joy to cook in the kitchen and dine at the table flooded with natual light. An easy walk to the beach and the village. We didn't explore further afield, we didn't need to, we found everything we wanted in the house and nearby. There is a great BBQ area in the garden. All our pre-visit questions were answered promptly by the hosts and the house was very clean and welcoming. We can't wait to go back." The Scrase Family
