The owner was very generous with both wood and coal for the woodburning stove, which I really appreciated, as the place does get pretty nippy in November. The hot tub was a delight to use and a real feature of the place, given the views and convenience. The place is not overlooked and is very private, so I really appreciated that. TV reception on BRead moreBC 1 and 2 was so bad, I could not watch those channels at all, but ITV, C4 and C5 were excellent, and I also had chance to discover iPlayer/Netflix. Hide

The place is amazing and pictures do not do it justice. The views are breathtaking. The hot tub was amazing too! They have really thought everything through, the bar inside the love shack is a particularly nice touch! I loved my stay and will look to book again in the near future.

This was a wonderful place to stay - fantastic location, with an unbeatable view over the harbour and wider bay area. The hot tub was very welcome, and the cottage itself very thoughtfully kitted out with all sorts of quirky, charming and personal items. We would thoroughly recommend it.

Absolutely stunning views, the pictures on the website dont do it justice! We couldnt have chosen better for our honeymoon and to be greeted by a bottle of champagne and roses was a lovely touch! We would (and already have) 100% recommend and hope to be back in the future.
