“We have just spent a perfect ‘get away from it all ‘short break in the Kittiwake. A very spacious and well- furnished cottage, with everything you could wish for. Beautiful views of the sea can be seen from the bedroom windows. (The beds are so comfy)

We enjoyed early morning walks with our dog, where we were ‘greeted’ by deer, a fox, kestrels and buzzards. We were also very lucky with the weather and enjoyed beautiful sunrises and sunsets.
The one thing we really noticed was how peaceful and quiet it was. If you want a place to relax and recharge your batteries, this is definitely the place for you.”
