We stayed for a week at the end of May / start of June. I wanted to be close enough to the beach just to walk down with the kids / dog / body boards etc and this was just perfect. The property is strangely laid out and a bit old fashioned but has everything you need (apart from wifi says my teenager). The garden is lovely. Wifi is free at the café on the non doggy beach if you buy something...... though not much mobile signal either if this is really important to you.
