The Mini Luxury Escape

 Lovely, quiet and relaxing property, securely fenced for our dog. Close to estuary and easy walk to beach. We loved our stay here. 

Cross road to beach. Spa. 3 bedrooms. Central.

 Great place to stay, short walk to the beach, great little cafe across the road. Lots of extras & very comfortable holiday home, nice and clean too! I'm sure a revisit is going to be planned. Many thanks for an easy renting experience.
