 It is difficult to describe the magic of As you Like it. The Cottage and it's surrounds are gorgeous, beautifully appointed, very pretty and quaint. The kayaks and dingy are a very good addition and it was wonderful for us to be able to have our dog with us. The presentation of the Cottage is excellent. The scenery, simply breathtaking! 

Historic Seaside Cottage

 Very well presented cottage, cosy, comfortable with beautiful views. We very much enjoyed our stay and would love to have another weekend at 'As you like it'.
