Ferndale Cottage

 Is a nice quite place I just like the cottage and nice view :-) Will come again this or next year. 

A swimming and boating haven

 Great wee hoose in a good location - easy walk to beach or shops. Very clean & tidy with all you need for a great holiday. Would definitely visit again - thank you. 

Affordable with sea views and close to the beach

 excellent location, so close to so many beaches and activities, walks etc. The beaches are so safe, they are for the most part like lagoons. snells is very tidal though and we did not swim here much as the times were wrong and otherwise mudflats. bach is basic as advertised but all you need and very clean. my children found the single bed mattress too hard so used the spare mattress provided instead. we had a ball and would recommend to anyone. thanks 

Ferndale Cottage

 Fully fenced for the dog so no worries there. The property was great especially at the top to be able to sit at the picnic table & look at the lovely view of the water. The neighbours at the bottom of the walkway were very nice people also
