I loved the location, relatively close to the airport as I travelled from England. It is by the sea - literally, with waves crashing in - fabtastic..! The size of the cottage was perfect and the open fire was cosy. It was actually late Feb 2010 when I visited with my late mum (and sister and friends) our last holiday... more

We all really enjoyed our stay at Sandend Cottage. Excellent, very well decorated & comfortable accommodation which was extremely well equipped (from bottle openers to board games & even a mini library!) at a superb location with stunning views. Even the sun loungers (yes, we even had lovely weather) were comfortable and easy to use :-) Thoroughly recommend. more
