We absolutely love Fairwinds and this was our second time. We love the decor and comfort of the place ad that the property has direct access to the beach. Our whippets loved being able to go out onto the deck and watch dogs on the beach below. Fairwinds is very well equipped. The owner has thoughtfully not crowded every surface with ornaments, so iRead moret is really great to have space to put your own belongings for the week.

Lovely cottage in a great location. 3 bedrooms set up for 5 people but with only 1 bathroom it was a bit conjested at times. We obviously managed fine but a second toilet would make a great difference. A decent sized bathroom that would benefit from a shower.

Fairwinds is a lovely cottage in a wonderful location. There are just a couple of drawbacks. Entry to the property does require two hands while standing on a narrow step, so not the easiest. Then whilst the main bedroom is quiet the other two bedrooms are on the front and you do very clearly hear everyone walking past and their conversations.
