Mrs L,

This was our 3rd stay at Drake cottage. Very comfortable and convenient for all local shops, beaches and restaurants. Beautiful views from the top bedroom. Hopefully will be back next year!

Mrs W,

We had a great stay at Drake Cottage. Location was spot on and everything was very clean. We managed to park at the island car park which was a bonus as it’s so close to the property. Absolutely loved it and will definitely make another visit.

Mrs J,
