We have just stayed at sail loft for 1 weeks holiday we are a family of 4 and we took a grandparent and 1 dog the accommodation was a perfect size large enough to feel you had space but the open plan ensures lots of together family time. The standard of the accommodation is really good with everything you could need.

Mrs S,

Beautiful accommodation - don’t be put off by the entrance. When we arrived at the property and opened the blue gate I was slightly worried. Having opened the door into the property I was very pleasantly surprised. It was beautiful inside and has everything you need. Would I book again? Yes definitely

Mrs R,

Sail Loft Studio has a lovely, bright interior. Furnished and equipped to a high standard. Beds were very comfortable. There were 6 adults in our party and it was more than spacious for us all. It is very well located having just to walk down a short alley to get straight to the harbour area and shops. In short we would highly recommend Sail Loft Studio.

Past Customer,
