The cottage is an absolute gem , we stayed here a few times now and absolutely love it , plus everything on your doorstep can’t wait for our next visit

Mrs T,

Wonderful cottage in an amazing location, our 4th visit to the cottage, love it, hopefully returning soon

Mrs T,

You won't beat the location of Mermaids Cove - its perfect, step right onto the beach . Bed comfortable, windy stairs are full of character but a little tricky to manoeuvre . Right in the heart of the harbour you will love this location.

Mr K,
