We were a party of eight and found the property to be small for our needs especially regarding food preparation and cooking.

Seafields is a super family holiday house. Having so many beds and two bathrooms was a joy. The bedroom downstairs is great for the older generation. Garden is large and allows children space for football and badminton etc. and having the coastal path and beach so accessible is invaluable. We would like to return.
