My husband and I spent a wonderful week at Treetops. The cottage was beautiful with everything you could need, the owners supplied a much appreciated welcome pack and milk in the fridge for our arrival. The location is perfect with a stunning garden and fantastic views. We spent some days exploring the forest walks and the beach which is only a 10 Read moreminute walk away. We can't recommend Treetops enough, came home and booked again for next year, can't wait to go back. Thank you Bruce & Lesley Hide

The location was very peaceful and great for nature lovers. Whilst only half a mile from the beach it is more suited to active individuals rather than elderly persons with mobility issues as it is situated at the top of a steep hill. The owners are very helpful.

A beautiful apartment with everything you could want. The only thing is that the garden is not dog secure so if you have an escape artist take a long lead to allow them to roam. We had a wonderful week with the best weather
