Clapper Bridge Cottage is really cosy.The lounge is great for sitting with a glass of wine and a good book after a long walk along the beach which is only a pretty ten minute walk away. Theres a beautiful cottage kitchen and the beds are super comfy. The Hive cafe on the beach serves great food and we booked at the Three Horseshoes pub for an AnnivRead moreersary meal which served the best steaks ever. We stayed for three nights and didnt use the car for the whole stay. Really relaxing break. Hide
