The beach is useable all year long with pebbles that can always be sat on as they are dry and with a flask of tea and our winter picnic blankets that we provide they beat a sand beach hands down.

"Beautiful old apartment if you like shabby chic"
I have stayed in many holiday rentals both here and abroad but this experience was quite unique. I think the owners should decide if this is their home or a holiday let unfortunately it can't be… More
We are really sorry that the flat was not to your liking
this is the first feedback we have had of this nature
most people are happy with the fact that the place is homely
We have had a word with the cleaner who forgot to clean out the fridge on this occasion . The wardrobe in the big room is supposed to be locked the other one is empty for peoples clothes which is why you saw the clothes there ! We have replaced the pillows with the ones which were in the cupboard in the big room , i think we had some visitors who had a feather allergy so did that. But thanks for your feedback all the same. It is still an amazing bargain at 12.50 per night for each person so a little quirks can I suppose be acceptable ! Cheers
