    Simply amazing place to stay

    I can't think of a more beautiful place to camp right on the coastal path for keen walkers and you get lulled to sleep by the sound of the waves on the rocks . A huge thanks to Sam and family us gave a warm welcome and nothing was too much trouble. The facilities were clean and well kept and everything was as promised. The Bell tent we stayed in was dry and cosy, the beds comfortable and everything we needed was provided. The farm-shop was a huge bonus. I recommend trying as many of the flavours of ice cream as possible because they were all lovely and all produced in the dairy behind the shop. I'd also recommend the burgers and bacon which are also produced on the farm - Zero Food Miles! They were great quality and perfect for a night in.
