Wonderful cottage, wonderful position on the beach and we would love to return but will not do so before a safety handrail has been added to the very steep difficult stairs.

The cottage is in prime location with spectacular views. The house is well equipped with everything you need for your stay. Only downside is the height of the roofs/beams. The stairs are quite interesting to get up/down because of this.so just be aware if youre tall (Im 5.8 and had issues)

Our week at Mermaids Cove was fantastic. Such a great location with the beach right on your doorstep! Decor, cleanliness and facilities are excellent. We enjoyed the quirkiness and original features and the window seating is great for reading and watching the world go by. You really can't go wrong by staying at Mermaids Cove!
