The house has a beautiful view of the bay with a small path leading down to the beach. We enjoyed the sunrise from the master bedroom in the morning, and chilling in evening by the lovely log fire listening to music.

3/5 Okay

Travelled with family
Liked: Cleanliness
Disliked: Amenities
The house was nice and warm ready for our arrival. There was no communication at all, not pre arrival with instructions, not during, nor on departure. Location was absolutely stunning and so were the blankets, super cosy. We liked the fireplace and the basket full of wood, we didn't feel cold at any stage of our stay. What did feel being put off, is the whole load of rules and don'ts, no flexibility, broken amenities like heaters' legs or no light bulbs in very cheap lighting, bad pillows.
