Fantastic holiday bungalow all geared up for family fun days on Widemouth Bay. The beach is a 5 min walk with 2 children (8+12). The bungalow is lovely and has a really nice vibe to it. In summary first class!

We enjoyed the nearby beach (on the doorstep) so much we very rarely went anywhere else,...
