Owner's reply: So glad you enjoyed your stay. When the tide is coming in you get lulled to relax with the sounds of the waves and when it is going out you get the oyster catchers, curlew and heron fishing. An ever changing view and at night no night pollution so you can see the stars and if you are lucky the full moon shining across the bay towards the cottage. magic - but then I am biased ( and jealous that I am not there!!). Come again. Karen
