Dan & Tash are lovely hosts making you feel welcome from the first moment and can't do enough for you.

All of the rooms at Tarltons Lodge have great views of the bay. Although slightly out of town, the town centre is walkable, the driveway is quite steep though so a little energy is required for the last push home! Dan and Natasha are lovely hosts; attentive, welcoming and friendly. Natasha is a very good cook and breakfast is certainly...
