  • Spacious and great view over the harbour

    Spacious and great view over the harbour. Comfortable beds. Good location right near the Light house. Short walk to wharf and shops. We could walk everywhere.

    The property was brilliant. My family and I had an excellent time. The location was central and convenient to walk into town. It was very cold while we were there and the fireplace and heating kept us very comfortable and warm all through the night. The only thing to note is the lower ground bedroom is accessed by a ladder/stairs that is not convenient for very young children or elderly people and the drive was is a little dangerous in wet/icy weather. Would definitely go back and stay here :)
