Mr G,

We have stayed in this property four times and absolutely love it. There is only two of us and find it perfect. Great location just off Fore Street right near the bakery. Kitchen is great washer/dryer and well equipped with everything you need. Bathroom lovely view of the sea, shower is great. Living room cosy and comfortable. Steep stairs which we have never had any issues with.
