Upon arrival we immediately felt at home as we had a very warm welcome from the owner. The cottage had a cosy but spacious feel about it and all the appliances were easy to use. Plenty of information was available concerning what to do on the island. Finally just to mention the small village shop/PO opposite the property, although small, stocked a variety of basics. Shorwell is a delightful little village with plenty of public footpaths around to explore the surrounding countryside.
