This house was perfect for us as a party of 10 friends, especially as many of the beds were zip and link allowing us all to have our own beds. The sea views from some of the bedrooms were such a bonus. The facilities were excellent. As it happened we had fantastic weather during our stay, but should it have been inclement we would have had plenty to occupy us at the house. There is a large covered BBQ area which is great for a bit of alfresco dining. You can go for a sea swim at the old harbour about a 5 minute walk away. The beach is a little rocky and the sand coarse but it was nevertheless a good place to take a dip. We also took a swim at a Long Sands, a sandy beach about a 5 minute drive away near Tregantle Fort. You do have to park up on the road and walk down to the beach. There are good, moderate walks in both directions along the coast from the house. We had an excellent meal at the Finnygook Inn, about a 10-15 walk away (uphill). Lovely pub, nice atmosphere, good service, plenty of room for a large party. We loved staying at this property and intend to book again next year.
