Recently refurbished cottage with a welcoming log burner. The decor is modern while maintaining the cottage feel. Very, very clean. Lots of room for 4. The thick walls make for a very quiet retreat. The kitchen has all the modern appliances needed. The garden has a stream running through it! The surrounding countryside has many walks suitable for young families to more senior walkers. The headland includes the coastal path along cliffs with many sea birds, only a 15 minute walk from the cottage. Plenty to see further afield. Will definately return! Steve and Jill
