                  Cowrie Lodge is a lovely self catering establishment that has all the facilities you need for a relaxing and fun holiday. It's in a beautiful estate with buck and other animals roaming about freely. Its a short walk to a beautiful wild beach. Its a perfect place to get away and relax and also have all the facilities of a mashie golf course, swimming pool and tennis courts to keep you entertained. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely come back again.

                  Beautiful and clean, Bev is very friendly and welcoming. Dinner is available by arrangement and after a day of travelling, so nice not to have to go out again.
