Stayed at Breakwater Cottage for a long weekend and we didnt have to take the car out once ! From the cottage you can walk to the town (which has many restaurants) to the sea as well as to the railway station nearby . We also found a bowling alley within walking distance for when the weather took a down turn.
The accomodation was clean and comfortable and we managed to stay warm even though the weather was freezing. My children 7 & 4 loved the bunkbeds ! We would definitely come back again , thanks for having us.
