This was the best uk destination we have done. The open cliff was great for the children to explore in, the jacuzzi also kept them entertained. The views are breathtaking the small touches in our welcome kit were so thoughtful. The owners borrowed us books and were extremely welcoming. We certainly will be coming back. Thank you so much

One of the most pleasant experiences of my life in the most stunning part of the countryside. Perched on the cliff top the cabins or pods which are exceptional BTW you can sit in the hottub and watch dolphins playing in the bay.

Fantastic views, lovely standard of accommodation, very comfy beds and the most relaxing location you could ask for. We travelled as a group of 4 adults and as a whole it was lovely, but the pod was more suited to a family of 4, as the seating in the evening was 3 on the couch and 1 on a kitchen stool.

The accommodation and location are absolutely stunning, it has everything. On a working farm, surrounded by beautiful countryside and the water, you could not ask for more. The owner popped in and could not have been nicer. The gift basket is also a lovely touch. A real 5 out of 5 experience.
