The house is in a great location with a short walk to the harbour and beautiful views from the house. We were all fit enough to cope with the steps up to the house and to the outside seating area but not for the fainthearted. The decoration was tasteful with some lovely pictures on the walls and and some quirky touches. It is comfortable for a grouRead morep of 6 - 8 and we very much enjoyed our holiday there. Hide
