  • "A lovely relaxing holiday was had at By the beach, Seaton."

    We walked on the beach every day, the locals and their dogs were all friendly. The cottage was clean an spacious for two and two large dogs. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and the stay in the cottage. We had an issue with the oven which was quickly sorted by the team (who are very friendly and approachable). Instructions for the appliances are now to be included in the cottage pack. Thank you By The Beach team, it was a lovely stay.

    Many thanks for your brilliant review and I look forward to welcoming you again to the beach in Cornwall again in the future. Mark Property Owner

  • "Instruction booklets would help with utilities"

    Dear Sasha, Thank you for bringing it to my attention that I had not provided instructions for the machine, and I'm sorry you had difficulty in understanding the controls which understandably you were not familiar with. It is a shame you did not advise me of that when I rang after you arrived to check you were OK, or contact me at the time you were having your difficulty as I would have been pleased to help by either coming around or looking up and sending details from the internet. I'm glad you were able to overcome this difficulty and otherwise had a pleasant stay. Property Owner

  • "We did have a couple of issues with this property."

    When the gas cylinder valve was opened and all the bbq controls were turned off, we could hear gas escaping continuously. Two days into our holiday the bathroom door refused to open. After contacting Meghan and the landlord we were given permission to break into the bathroom. Evidently this had happened three weeks previously. We were very disappointed that the landlord did not arrange to have either of these issues resolved while we were there. We would like to return to Seaton but definitely not to By The Beach.

    Dear Susan, I spoke to your husband on the phone, who was kind enough to check that it was OK to apply some force to the bathroom door which had inexplicably stuck towards the end of your stay. I remained on the phone while he did that, heard the door open and understood that this left the door functioning properly, so arranged for a man to adjust it at changeover so as not to disturb you. This was done and it has remained problem free. Your husband mentioned the BBQ and I offered to bring around a replacement, but he told me that there was no need, as you were not planning to use it for the remainder of your stay. Perhaps you were not a party to that conversation? I had previously used the BBQ and left it working with a part cylinder of gas, but the man who called the following day while you were out found that someone had damaged a rubber seal by cross threading it when changing to the provided spare cylinder . I immediately bought new seals, leaving the spares in the cabinet. I am sorry this inconvenienced, but you glad you enjoyed being by the beach in Seaton, Cornwall and would like to return.
