Eight on Walmer- Quiet & Peaceful

 Great location with excellent facilities. Ideal for a couple or group. Near to the coastal walk and golf courses and there are shops and restaurants nearby. We have now stayed twice and would without doubt go again in the future. New Plymouth is only a short drive away. 

Relax in the Country

 We liked the property for the location of where we had to visit and the people that run the place shame about the rain. It was like a home away from home. We will be back at some time and have told others about the property
