Our second time in this lovely cottage and we enjoyed it every bit as much as the first time. Wonderfully quiet and peaceful. Miriam, Glasgow and Garrel, Stockholm

Spent 3 glorious days here. Would recommend a trip to The Shiants. We saw a large number of dolphins playing round the boat, puffins, seals, razorbills and guillemots galore. We have really enjoyed it all. Graham & Lynne, Tunbridge Wells.

This cottage & this holiday will rank as one of our most memorable. Views from the Conservatory are amazing. Cottage perfect and our most comfortable 'holiday bed' ever! Rose & David, Gloucs.

Great cottage, great views….great! We want to live here forever. Thank you. Terry & Sylvia, Yorkshire
