Very comfortable accommodation and peaceful location. Perfect for visiting Poppit Sands with our dogs and for accessing the Bay to Remember dolphin and wildlife spotting boat trip.

This cottage is perfect for two people. Every room is a good size and thoughtfully furnished.

This cottage / bungalow is well placed and has good back yard for doggies but we found it a bit depressing backing on to a car park for flats. It was cold and a bit dated and there was no real welcome within it not even a bit of cooking oil we had to buy all cleaning products apart from washing up liquid.
