5/5 Excellent

Fabulous spacious cottage in a great location
We have just spent two days in this fabulous cottage to explore the NC500 without the stress of bringing our motorhomes up this far. (The A roads can be a bit challenging up here as some parts are single track) The cottage was spotlessly clean, spacious and cosy and also dog friendly. There were 4 adults and 2 dogs in our party. It had everything you could want or need. It is situated overlooking the coast near Tongue. It’s a mere 15 minute walk to Skinnet Beach ( very quiet and unspoilt and we saw seals) and the Craggen Hotel is a 5 minute walk serving hot meals. We cannot recommend this cottage enough. We will be sure to return. Thank you so much for such a wonderful stay.

5/5 Excellent

Perfect for exploring the NC500
Fantastically clean and spacious dog-friendly property. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this property to others. The nearby beach is beautiful and the house is close to a local shop, which was handy.
