Our first visit here, it won't be the last. Very relaxing and enjoyable. Lovely walks along the cliff and wasted plenty of time people watching from the garden. Excellent ice cream from The Ship and best fish and chips from The Shed. Also enjoyed food from 'The Sloop'. Looking forward to another visit hopefully in Spring to enjoy all the flowers on the cliffs. Many thanks, Fiona.
