Great place to stay with a two minute walk to the beach. Centrally located so makes it great for walks both east and West along the coast path. Room was great with en suite shower. The owner, Alan went to great lengths to keep the place covid safe with things like remote check in and different breakfast times for rooms. Tea and coffee was supplied free of charge to all guests as was bottles of water every day. A nice touch again by Alan. Would certainly recommend. The only slight negative could be the parking as one car could have to wait for another to leave at busy times. Parking on the road outside is possible if you think it could be an issue. For me it wasn't. Highly recommended if you want a quiet few days away from it all with cooked breakfasts thrown in tbe price.
