Perfect property

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The private garden area was perfect to sit in any time of the day. We spent most of our time out there. The mornings were glorious. The kids were safe and had a ball. The house was clean and had everything we needed. And so close to the shops. Definitely stay here again. Thanks Annemarie

Pretty Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Great location and such a pretty Cottage. Very clean and it had everything you would need, with comfy beds. Great having Wi Fi, kids didn’t have to use our phone data to use their iPads. The back garden was cute and had a lovely decking and entertainment space. Very private back garden. Great communication with the owners of the property. Highly recommended.

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Sophorae Cottage for the weekend. It was clean and comfortable and perfectly located. Just a few minutes walk to the shops and the beach. I would highly recommend the cottage to my family and friends. Would have loved to have managed to book for December or January but it's already booked out. My only recommendation is perhaps to have a ramp outside somewhere for easier access with a pram.

Great house

A lovely comfortable house in a great location, just a shame it was only for 2 nights. Would definitely stay again and recommend it to friends. Will bring more coffee pods next time
