Lovely cottage in an awesome location, got to relax and unwind plus encountered some seals and sea lions in their own environment Highly recommend this special place.
The Bach was lovely and tidy and we felt very welcome for our stay over Christmas. It had a beautiful homely feel and we were lucky to have great weather for our stay. We would love to come back again and be able to stay for longer.
We loved it! Quaint, rustic and charming. Terrible weather, but we had the fire going, and two hotties in our beds, and we were cosy. The beaches, wildlife, and peaceful isolation were just what we needed, lots of walking in the mist! Thankyou??
Sweet, cozy cottage, (loved the fresh flowers) perfect weather, sunsets, sealions, cruiseships, albatrosses, birdsong. Bliss. We’ll be back I’m certain.
