Small shop on site for essentials, surprisingly reasonable pricing. However we did pop to Tesco before arriving, around 9miles away. The pizzeria/fish shop...More

Park Dean have just ripped me off and made me pay for insurance I didn't want. Don't book with them. It doesn't apply to this specific location, but that's irrelevant. I am looking into contacting the general media about this issue.

I don't see why not there was plenty of space next to ours, I'd just give them a quick call and ask for specifics😀
Really like the idea of the ocean view cottage and looking to book for next week, reviews seem to suggest the cottages are not great despite the great views....is it worth paying the extra for the cottages or not?!
