We had the most amazing 5 night stay at Cliff Edge by the sea with our host Peter who went above and beyond to make our stay an unforgettable one, he is an exceptionally good cook cooking for us 4 out of the 5 nights and the best breakfasts each morning, cereal, fruits nuts, sweet buns, toast, cheeses and cold cuts and of course coffee or tea. We just loved the lodge, beautifully designed and decorated. We really felt welcomed by Peter and very comfortable. Can absolutely recommend to stay here. You will not be disappointed and we do hope to come back for another stay. Thanks you Peter
