Amazing place to stay
What an amazing place to stay. Our studio was so comfortable, everything we needed was there, including a continental breakfast. Blissfully quiet, waking up and seeing the lighthouse out the window was amazing!

The site and accomodation was an experience unlike any other. The exlcusivity element you can only buy with an overnight stay. The only unfortunate part was the overall cleanliness which just was not up to scratch.

We loved the property - clean and green with beautiful sea views and a short easy walk down to the lighthouse or around the old buildings - the lighthouse keepers' cottages, old telegraph station and so on. Our accomodation was clean, comfortable and of an acceptable standard. It was a tad small and poky but hey, you get what you pay for, don't you.
