A lovely quiet cottage in great central location.

We loved Nutshell! Beautifully designed, the accommodation is immaculately clean and very well thought out. The nautical theme works well and gives a lovely feel to the place. The location is great, quiet street but close to shops and only a short walk to the harbour and beach. We loved staying at Nutshell and look forward to another visit there!

A nice location and everything was on your doorstep. The decor and furnishings were lovely, all nautical features, very much a seaside retreat.

Nutshell is amazing. My husband and I had an extremely relaxing, enjoyable time staying there and were extremely impressed with the high standards and experience. Can't fault it in any way. It is a beautiful little place, the attention to detail was outstanding. Well done to the owners.

A beautiful little gem of a hideaway for 2, the most inventive use of space I've ever seen. It was very well appointed with everything you might need. Very central with free car parking at the Leisure Centre.
