Stayed October 2021

Lovely warm clean and tidy house. Stunning view of the harbour. Lovely walk to the town and a wee slog back up the hill. Plenty of OSP including garage which was good as we had our bikes. A coffee plunger would have been ideal to have in the kitchen. Only one spare roll of toilet paper for 4 days also provided. Quiet neighbourhood, very relaxing ! Would recommend.

Perfect house for a large family or friends to stay. Clean and well looked after. Would definitely stay in this property again!
