    The Beach Niche is a really cute and cosy place to stay, lovely garden with beautiful flowers, perfect set up in the cottage for what we needed and some quirky paintings about the place. All very clean and tidy. Helen was friendly and easy going. Our bed was very comfortable as others had mentioned in reviews. It's in a good location close to town and beach. We would return here.
