I had a lovely stay with Lili and Dave, they are both really friendly and welcoming, instantly making you feel at home. They have a great place close to the town centre, within easy walking distance of everything you need. Their three pets and the breakfast are an added bonus!

The Nest is a lovely place to stay for a few days. It's a peaceful and relaxing place to stay and Lili and Dave were great. They leant me a bike which I enjoyed using to explore the coastline, provided a great breakfast and also a G&T in the sun!

Even though Lili was away when we stayed she did everything to make us feel welcome and it all went smoothly. The Nest is a charming little oasis and we didn't feel like we were in a city even though everything was a short walk away. Really enjoyed staying here.
