We found the accommodation at Under Milk Wood very comfortable and well maintained. The surroundings were also very nice and relaxing. There was only a small problem when a car took in our parking space. The staff tried to find out who the owner was but nobody seemed to know. Luckily there was an other parking space free for us.

A stunning location, the chalet was well furnished and staff very helpful and friendly. Although the chalets were quite close together it was incredible peaceful, the beach area a little haven and a joy to stay at.
