We had a fantastic week at the beautiful Coxswains Cottage. The owner Sharon greeted as on our first day.  The cottage was the best property we have ever stayed in, decorated to perfection.  Thanks Sharon for a brilliant holiday.


Thank you for the fantastic week we spent at Coxswains Cottage at the end of October. We were wonderfully comfortable and we felt fortunate to be able to spend the time in a place that is so attractively furnished and with all the facilities one could wish for. It felt as though we were staying in someone else’s home, rather than just a holiday let, furnished any old how. It was also perfectly located for the town and the beach. …We would unreservedly recommend Coxswains Cottage…
