    “We had a wonderful weekend in Ferry cottage.”

    It was very comfortable & very well equipped with everything we needed. Especially good having 3 en-suite bedrooms & the children loved having the Family bathroom to themselves. The close proximity to the beach was also a big plus. We'll definitely stay again in the future.
