    “Perfect place for a comfortable family gathering”

    At short notice, we booked Overlander to share a family Christmas and celebrate my dad’s 80th birthday. Was a fantastic find this was. Comfortable and spacious accommodation with a really well equipped kitchen. We’d brought a couple of kitchen items from home and were easily able to create Christmas lunch for 9 in the kitchen. For such a big meal, we could have done with a bit more work surface, but with the table nearby, we managed. For ‘normal’ self-catering, there is enough surface ...

    At short notice, we booked Overlander to share a family Christmas and celebrate my dad’s 80th birthday. Was a fantastic find this was. Comfortable and spacious accommodation with a really well equipped kitchen. We’d brought a couple of kitchen items from home and were easily able to create Christmas lunch for 9 in the kitchen. For such a big meal, we could have done with a bit more work surface, but with the table nearby, we managed. For ‘normal’ self-catering, there is enough surface. The rooms were well furnished and the beds were comfortable. The table was a fabulous size and it was lovely to have everyone together to eat. When we all headed to the spacious sitting room, it was a bit snug on the sofas but as there was usually someone flopped on the floor or doing something else, it wasn’t a huge problem. The owners were really welcoming and there were Christmas decorations up, including a real tree and festive tableware. Despite my dad walking with a stick, and there not being any pavements in such a lovely rural village, we walked to the pub and back. Some of us went for a run from the place and it wasn’t far to get on the coastal path to enjoy some off-road terrain. It didn’t take long to walk down to the cost at Hive Beach and go for a stroll along there. Having pubs, a garage, convenience stores and post office all nearby make this a perfect place to stay. You feel you’ve got away from everything as you admire the fabulous views from the windows but if you do need any supplies, you don’t have far to go. We loved it!
