  • "Oak Barn was absolutely first class."

    The interior was bright and clean, and the oak made the most of this excellent cottage. The use of an upside-down arrangement worked well, with so many windows allowing fresh air throughout. The location in the town proved extremely convenient, with local facilities only a few minutes walk, so no need to use the car. The equipment in the kitchen covered all our needs, and more. Being in such an interesting town, we would certainly consider re-booking next year.

    Thanks so much for your lovely review. It’s always rewarding to us when people take the time to write one. We are so pleased that everything suited your requirements. Property Owner

  • "We loved it here."

    The lounge was amazing,the kitchen had everything you could need and the beds were super comfortable. It was so kind of Andrew to leave us wine and chocolates and to take the trouble to come round to make sure everything was ok. It was literally a couple of minutes walk to the harbour, pubs and shops yet still quiet and peaceful. We would recommend this property wholeheartedly and would love to return in the future

    Thank you very much indeed for your review it means a lot to us both. Happy that you found Oak barn suited your needs and you had a comfortable week. Property Owner

  • "We stayed for our family holiday this year with our two young children."

    We had everything we needed in a clean and comfortable environment which made it incredibly relaxing for us. The front court yard was safe and the short walk to the marina and shops was perfect with the adventure of the fossil beaches and nearby playground. The owner was incredibly kind and helpful and the treats for the children and us was a lovely welcome. We would stay again.

    Thank you for this it is important to us to hear that we are getting it right. Glad to know you enjoyed your time in the cottage. Property Owner

    Oak Barn is the best one. Very comfortable bedrooms, clean bathrooms and large and cosy first floor sitting room. I personally fell in love with the kitchen. I hope to be back again and will definitely recommend it to others.

  • "This property has the wow factor."

    The open planned living area and kitchen upstairs was amazing. It had all the comforts you could wish for and was extremely clean. It was a few minutes walk into the town, which had some lovely places to eat and lovely shops, as well as the beach for fossil hunting. The owner was friendly and helpful and the chocolates and wine were a lovely surprise on arriving. We would definitely recommend this property and area and will be back soon. Thank you so much.

    Thank you very much for this delightful review. So happy to know you had an enjoyable stay and our Oak barn impressed you. Property Owner
