What a wonderful surprise break immediately before Christmas! This property overhanging the beach/ water must surely be at its very best in the wild storms of this winter. We were assisted to the property by members of the team and entered to a roaring log fire and every room toasty from small electric heaters that you really wouldnt expect to throw out so much heat! This is a traditional property and furnished in the main as such- take your slippers as the stone floors are cold and the tiles on the stairs a bit sharp! There was only the 2 of us bùt this is a substantial property- not quite sure how everyone could comfortably sit in the lounge if at capacity though. The kitchen is well resourced but the over quite slow and we were a bit surorised not to find a small 'welcome pack' on arrival as provided in every other cottage we have ever stayed- at least for a cuppa on arrival so remember to take this with you as the one shop I was directed to by the hotel receptionist to whom I regaled our 'plight' hat was open in the village had very limited stock and was expensive. Our package included a meal in either the hotel or castle and given the wild weather we opted for thenearby hotel. The food was excellent as was the food in the castle on a previous visit. Fabulous views so well considered in the build so even if you only use one room, check the views from all the others. We will definitely return if a bit better resourced next time.
