    “A lovely convenient place to stay.”

    Great views from the house, with a comfy chair and foot rest I could enjoy the view with a good book after a long walk. Plenty of walks from the house or there's a bus stop right outside which we used several times as well as the launches. Easy walk into town or to Booths to stock up too
