    Had a lovely family holiday here,the Bach is very private surrounded by farmland which was so nice and peaceful. Loved the beach which is only a 2min walk away. We really enjoyed hearing the morporks at night and looking at the stars which were amazingly bright in the countryside. Thanks for the great memories we will be back :)

    Owner/manager responds:

    A great family and they had the ideal transport of a golf cart to take the small grand children 200 to the beach and to pick up the guys after their hard days fishing. Thank you for leaving the place spotless and you are welcome back anytime AA++
