We enjoyed several nights in Black Cottage - the location was perfect as only minutes from the High Street & the beach. We used the Common car park which worked well for us. The cottage is tastefully decorated and furnished, we enjoyed the art as well. Despite the weather we had a really relaxing break!

Mr D,

The property was well sited and very comfortable.

Mrs B,
