    Jess and family - Feb 2016

    "Hideaway Cottage was a lovely clean, comfortable place to stay in a fantastic location. We had all that we needed and were pleased with the wine and extras, like tea bags, condiments, washing powder, toys, books etc. The cottage was very clean and comfortable. It was great being able to go for walks from the front door and to wake up to the sound and sight of the sea! For us the only slight downside was that the garden wasn't right outside so we couldn't sit outside in the evening when the children were asleep. Having said that, we used the garden for barbecues, running around and hanging out washing. Overall, a great cottage that was good value for money."
