There are also local attractions (dinosaur park and Watermouth castle) within 10 min drive or local beach to go rock pooling. Its an area of outstanding beauty with lovely walks...

We regularly visit smythen Farm cottages as we love the time on their beautiful little farm with our dog! The animals on the farm are absolutely lovely, the walking field is a great place for kids and dogs. The swimming pool is fantastic (the jacuzzi in particular!) the kids love it and it's great for couples! A must visit!

We have been here in Oct 14, Aug 15 and again Oct 16. Another fantastic stay, cottage spotless and even considering it was at the end of the season decoration was in fabulous order.
