"Spacious, classy accomodation in superb location"
This was our fourth stay in this capacious house. The four bedrooms and three bathrooms are ideal for our children and grandchildren. The house is very well equipped and decorated and has been consistently upgraded. It is situated in a quiet leafy side street with its own parking for two cars. The location is superb, a couple hundred yards from the sandy beech and a short walk to the town center. If only the weather was as reliable!
