Harbour cottage hideaway
Lovely welcome,cosy and easy accessed.Met the landlord as we were early very helpful.Quiet location which was a surprise as the cottage is next to the ferry port.We could only stay for three nights,which was a shame,would be very happy to stay longer.We did not cook in the house this time,but seemed very equipped to handle any food prep ,lovely butcher and fresh fish available locally.

Harbor Cottage is great!
We stayed at Harbor Cottage for 3 nights and had a great stay. It was comfortable and in an awesome location right across from the ferry harbor. Two things that I appreciated in particular were the convenient lights for reading and the abundance of electric outlets, Needing outlets for hair dryer, curling iron, heating pad, and all the devices needing recharged was no problem here! The place was clean and cozy and the kitchen well-equipped for our needs. You can't go wrong staying at this cute, two-story cottage.
