  • "Lovely weekend break near pubs and services."

  • "The cottage was beautiful, it had everything you could possibly want, even had a tumble dryer and dishwasher which we didn’t need."

    Great location. Would definitely book to stay there again.

  • "A very comfortable cottage and well equipped."

    A cafetiere would have been useful but coffee bags were very welcome. I have motor neurone disease and although I was aware of the steps outside, I wasn't aware of the two steep steps up to the kitchen with no hand rail. I managed but it was a bit of a challenge! The decking area was lovely with good views. Would recommend this cottage to couples who want a handy place to explore the area as it's easy to get to lots of places.

  • "We very much enjoyed or stay at pearl cottage, it was very well presented and well equipped."

    We loved the outside terrace area with its views across the estuary, and spent some very pleasant evenings enjoying a drink out there watching the sunset. Park on site was not an option for our VW Golf, but we didn’t have any problems finding a space along the road. I think if we came again we would come by train to the nearby station; bring our bikes and enjoy cycling along the coast etc?

  • "Generally the cottage is lovely and the terrace area was perfect."

    Once we arrived we found that the lights were not working in the dining area and the keys to open the patio doors and utility were not available. I immediately messaged the contact to inform her of the missing keys and lights. The keys arrived through the letterbox 2 days later so we could at least open the utility room for the outdoor furniture cushions. Iwas told that the lights would be sorted once we’d left! Not good enough really. The bedroom and bathroom were clean although wardrobe storage is limited. The kitchen however was not clean, luckily I’d taken my anti bac cleaner. The floor in the kitchen/ dining room was grimey, the cooker hood had not seen a clean for some time, such a shame as the cottage is so quaint. We had a lovely week but I’m not sure I would book this cottage again.

  • "Fantastic location and great outdoor space at the property."

    I don't think it should advertise as having a parking space when so few cars are small enough to use it. Instructions on how to use the grill on the oven would be useful as we couldn't get this to work! We'd definitely stay here again.

  • "Amazing little cottage, perfect for what we were after for a little staycation in a quiet location!"

    The cottage wasn’t as small as I expected! The only thing I could say would be that the accommodation could use of the garage due to little parking.
