The cottage was wonderful with all the facilities you would ever need. We had a fantastic time. The beach is just a few paces away from the front door and we had breakfast on the beach every day. The local pub, the Cricketer's Arms, served amazing food and great local ale and beer. There was even a little shack at the start of the street that sold fresh fish and shellfish every day. In fact, there was really no need to go anywhere else. For a relaxing family holiday, it really fitted the bill. Don't forget to take a wetsuit for swimming and a something to float on in the sea as the bay is very calm and stretches for miles.
