The two living rooms provide flexibility for different activities, especially when it rains. The kitchen is brilliant, well equipped and big enough for all to gather and eat together. The history of the house is fascinating, the location is convenient for beaches, sea front, shops, lots for everyone to enjoy. Altogether fantastic for a multi generational group, great atmosphere and welcoming environment. Thanks for looking after the house so well and the opportunity to stay.
