  • "On arrival we was greeted by the very friendly owners."

    As stated by one of the reviews the pictures of the inside of the property do it justice but the views as so spectacular you do not notice and also it makes it so much more homely other than worrying about your every more. The welcome pack was also a delightful treat. We loved our stay sooooo much we really didn’t want to leave. Thank you for a perfect holiday.

  • "A lovely property , well equipped, comfortable beds and sofas etc, and great views across the sea."

    Everything was as we expected based on the details in the property listing. Handy for local restaurants and beach, and lots to do in the area. Property was easy to find and parking space was big, self check-in went well. I would definitely recommend a holiday at Raven Cottage, we had a lovely time.

  • "Beautiful location, house is in need of some TLC and maintenance."

    Rear garden was pretty much unusable. The view and proximity to beach made up for the shortfalls in property. Lovely welcome pack and early access was a good perk.

    Thank you so much for your feedback, we hope you had a lovely holiday. We are doing a major renovation project on Raven Cottage, works starts at the end of October. Property Owner

  • "Very disappointed, the photos looked great but in reality the place hasn’t been modernised at all other than the kitchen, the boiler barely gives out a dribble of hot water to wash pots, there’s rising damp up some of the walls, the wind howls through the windows, one guest had to sleep on the sofa as the bed was unbearable, on inspection it had been repaired with a piece of plywood and an old cupboard door."

    Needless to say we left a day early, If I’d paid £500 for the week it would of been understandable but £2500 was 5 weeks wages for me so to say I’m devastated is an understatement

    We are very sorry to hear you’ve had a less than satisfactory holiday, we looked into your issues you’ve had and have addressed them.There was a dishwasher at the property but we have now changed the water pressure system and the damp has been resolved and the walls replastered, as part of a property upgrade. The bed had been temporarily repaired but is now repaired with a permanent fixture,We do give out two contact numbers for guests prior to arrival and would have assisted immediately if we had known at the time that you needed help but neither we nor Sykes seem to have had any contact from you during your stay and we are sorry we were not given the opportunity to help you at the time.

    Everything spotless and extremely comfy. Good sized rooms and decent bedding provided. All mod-cons makes it a very stress free stay. Property accurately described and well located for the beach. Decent pubs nearby and shop selling essentials just a 10 minute walk away. Excellent property to just relax and unwind.
