his is our third or fourth visit to Ginnel Cottage so we obviously like it! It is well-equipped to a high standard. Lots of crockery & cutlery. As with all Grace Darling cottages we have used, it is very clean. The welcome pack was quite extensive and appreciated. Two keys are provided which Ifibd really helpful when we want to do different things yet without bothering about key codes. Parking is okay with a little consideration. Location is good both for the town and for the nearby cliff walk.Communication from Grace Darling was excellent with useful updates. This was a break deferred from last year and worth the wait.

Mrs A,

This is our second visit to the property and just as enjoyable as the first

Mrs T,

Beautiful property very clean and welcoming

Mrs Kelly G,
