  • The property and location are fantastic

    The property and location are fantastic. Right next to the sea. Peaceful and quiet. The only thing to note is that property is very cold during winter. There is an electric oil heater but it struggles when 3-6degrees C outside. The property would be awesome in Summer but maybe bring a second heater during Winter time.
