Perfect for a family holiday. Clean and roomy, local shops a stones throw away as are the bus stops. St Peters Port 12 mins bus trip also local. Two stunning beaches 15 mins walk away. Simon and Fiona very welcoming with plenty of information available. Would definitely return.

Management response:
