    The Property inside and out is stunning with everything we needed. We had lovely BBQ’s outside and it was easy to cook meals when we wanted. The property was exceptionally clean. At the end of our week we did not want to leave, which is not normally the case! Thank you so much.

  • "Absolutely love this property."

    The location is fantastic and outdoor space is wonderful. We also enjoyed cooking and dinning in the gorgeous kitchen. We simply couldn’t fault anything. Only a couple of suggestions, could do with a dressing table or shelf with mirror to do hair and makeup, I had to stand in the small room by the bathroom as only mirror where plug is. Also, maybe some curtains as very bright in the early morning. Thanks for the fab stay.

  • "7 Beachdowns is a beautiful spotless home where every detail to make our stay was very well considered and accommodated for."

    Even the dog got his own bowls, feed mat and bed to use. The house is very spacious, bright and incredibly well kitted out to a very high standard, The garden areas are really lovely and were used daily by us, the outside sofa was sooo comfy too and continued the high standard from the inside. The location was stunning just a short walk across the headland to Bigbury-on-Sea and Burgh island, and a lovely bay across the headland in the other direction. Wonderful scenery and coastline. I would certainly recommend a stay here, we all agreed we had never stayed in such a well considered equipped home, AND it’s dog friendly. It’s so refreshing to stay in a lovely clean high standard home with a dog and respect it as one would do in our own home, 7 Beachdowns was an absolute delight and offered just the break and R&R I needed.

    Dear Mrs C - many thanks for the very kind feedback. We're so happy that you enjoyed both the property and your stay. We look forward to hosting you again. Property Owner

  • "The location of the property was totally misrepresented."

    The detail described it as a quaint village. It was not. It was totally geared for caravans. The road to the property consisted of a single track road for miles, with passing places, not helpful when you are next door to a site containing hundreds of caravans. A site that at no point was mentioned, not even in the directions, when it would have been easier to mention it. It was clear that the intention was for visitors to arrive knowing nothing of the site. If we knew of the site there is no way we would have booked it. It totally spoiled our stay. The village naturally was geared to the hundreds of caravans not a luxury property.

    Many thanks for taking the time to leave your feedback. We can only apologise that you felt mislead by the description, this would never have been our intention. We will, of course review the wording and pictures on the website and make adjustments if appropriate. We do hope you still had a lovely holiday and enjoyed all the area has to offer. Property Owner
