This was perfect! It was a good distance from town so we could have some peace and quiet in nature, but not too far so we could go out to eat. Really beautiful and unique location. The cottage had everything we needed - linen, towels, tea, coffee, cooking oil etc. Very well set up

The cottage is pretty incredible. We were both pretty excited to stay beside the rugged coast beneath a lighthouse, and the whole experience was so good. The cottage itself was much bigger than expected, the bedrooms were beautiful and the bed extremely comfortable. The bathroom was modern and lovely, the spacious kitchen had everything we needed and the living room has a big open fireplace which we used both nights. The atmosphere here is both super cosy and wonderfully eerie. We stayed in May and there was a heavy storm the first night - there was nowhere better to be than by the fire in a heavy-set stone-built cottage by a lighthouse. Stepping out onto the protected veranda to see the lighthouse's beams circling through the driving rain in an image neither of us will forget. The place is built for just this type of weather and nothing on the cottage rattled or shook, despite the crazy storm winds. We would return here in a heartbeat and most certainly recommend to anyone looking for a more unique, but at the same time very luxurious, place to stay.
