"Excellent base for group of 9 friends and family including baby."

We were a varied party - from 11 months to mid-fifties, 4 young adults - everyone loved the house - there was a room to suit everyone. The location was perfect for wandering around the town and for driving out to the nearby sandy beaches. Time flew by and we were all sad to be leaving - great house and lovely town for a holiday.

Many thanks for your feedback.
I'm glad your party enjoyed your stay in Primrose House and enjoyed the area as much as we do.
