There's a wonderful natural pool at low tide for swimming a few minutes away. Great pubs and restaurants are just 4-5 minutes stroll away. There aren't any nightclubs but you may hear the occasional fishing boat catching an early morning tide!More

Very occasionally the water pressure in the village is reduced and you obviously sadly took a shower at one of those times. It's very rare though. As for the bed I don't understand, of course the mattress has been changed in the last 10 years...More
