“We have just returned from a very relaxing week at Gladstone Cottage. Jan and Alan made us very welcome and everything we (including our 2 spaniels) possibly needed for a comfortable stay was provided in the cottage. The garden was fantastic for the dogs as was the lovely (and usually empty) beaches nearby. Overall Gladstone Cottage was a brilliant base for exploring the whole area.”
