    “Super house in a remote but beautiful location.”

    Stoney beach 300m away where seals come right into the shore. Views across the coastline are superb.

    Stoney beach 300m away where seals come right into the shore. Views across the coastline are superb. Bedrooms are all en-suite and well proportioned. Outdoor seating area is an added bonus. Polly & Brendan (and Hank) were extremely helpful and friendly offering great advice on activities, restaurants etc We had a really enjoyable holiday made all the better with our super accommodation & hosts
