5/5 Excellent

Salty Dog Cottage - great for people and pets!
One of the few properties that allows well behaved pets inside. This low set cottage was perfect for our old, blind and deaf lab and she was able to find her way around and get out into the yard quite easily. Everything was very clean and the cottage had all the facilities you could need. The location is superb with only a few minutes walk to numerous cafes and the beach. Hardly any need for the car if you don't want to drive! The owners are friendly and accommodating and communication was excellent - always prompt and helpful. Highly recommended.

Coastal Cottage Getaway
Beautiful property in a great location. The cottage has everything for the modern family. The beaches are close and beautiful with plenty of path ways connecting them all Would recommend and would stay here again

5/5 Excellent

Classy hosts!
Belinda was awesome in the face of adversity due to the lockdown. She communicated with us regularly and proactively asked if we needed a later check out which was great with our shortened stay. Place is cozy and comfy and able to squeeze in a family of five including three teenagers and our dog. Highly recommended for a laid back holiday.
