  • "Quite a Few cobwebs, limescale to shower heads."

    There was also a smell of dampness throughout the house despite us keeping windows open during our stay.

  • "We were pleasantly surprised by the spaciousness of this house."

    At no time did we feel cramped, and the addition of a second TV room meant that the young adults with us could watch Love Island and we could sit in the garden outside the French doors from the vaulted sitting area in peace! The decor is light and airy and has a seaside feel to it. The kitchen is extremely well equipped and it was easy to cater for everyone and a decent size dining table meant that we could sit at the table easily. The garden is also delightful with terracing up and away from the house with a variety of borders overflowing with flowers. Sitting at the top of the garden having lunch in dappled sunshine listening to the birdsong and looking at the view of hills beyond was delightful. When in during the evening, we sat outside on the patio close to the house and enjoyed the evening sun. As has been remarked by others, the photographs simply do not do it justice. We were surprised that other reviewers listed minor gripes with the house. This appears a fault with the feedback form as there is no section to provide feedback to the owner that is not made public. Our feedback on the house is that the metal garden chairs need replacing as the legs are uneven due to rust (one can sit on them but they lean backwards) and the smaller wooden bench at the top of the garden is rickety and needs replacing. All in all, the house was lovely and we had a great holiday. Pebbles is a short walk down the hill to the beach and the wonderful Hive beach café was a treat. It’s also only a short drive into Bridport with excellent shops, Wednesday and Saturday market as well.

  • "Pebbles was beautiful and homely, garden and wildlife lovely."

    Only small issues we feel need addressing. The bolt on the ensuite door dropped out because the retaining screw was missing. Likewise the lock on the shared bathroom did not work despite gently turning and the plug in that basin didn't retain the water. There was also a problem one day with the cistern in the ensuite not stopping the water flow after flushing, for as much as 15 minutes and it seemed to start flowing quite randomly without flushing. As it is blocked in we couldn't check the ballcock. It did seem ok the day we left.

  • "Very nice comfortable accommodation in a lovely area."

    The kitchen is very well equipped, one of the best we have stayed in. The beds were very comfortable and the garden was lovely. We did not have the best weather but made the most of the lovely walks along Hive beach and beyond. Plenty of places to visit, the Swannery in Abbotsbury is a must. The swans are fed in the afternoon at 4pm, you are invited to feed them if you wish to do so, amazing experience. Only two pubs in Burton Bradstock, a fifteen minute walk away, beware it is pitch black on the way back to the property so need a torch! Probably not a problem in the summer months. Perhaps having a torch available in the property may be a good idea. All in all we had a great week.

  • "Hi We were unable to leave our rubbish as you requested because the bin was full and we didn’t want to risk the bag being torn apart by animals over night."

    As we said there is not enough bin space or recycling facilities. . When we arrived last Friday we noticed black bin bags on top of the bin so there is obviously a problem here. A bigger black bin would be useful. We also had to take all our recycling items back home because there is no system to deal with this. Not right in this day and age. Thanks Dave Andrews

  • "We were pleasantly surprised when we walked in the cottage- much bigger and more modern then the pictures show."

    The open plan living room/dinner/kitchen is a brilliant sociable space and had a great view of the BEAUTIFUL garden (where we spotted rabbits every day!). The extra reception room was really handy if you have children! It's a short and easy walk to the beach and a good base for things to do in Dorset. The driveway is quite narrow on entry so if you are in an SUV you need to take it carefully. Overall the house was spotlessly clean but we were disappointed to find the sink in the utility hadn't been cleaned and a stained (unsure if also unclean) towel in the twin room- normally we wouldn't be too bothered, and such things can easily happen but given the covid cleanliness expectations this did concern us. Regardless we loved the cottage and would have booked again for the summer if it had been available!

  • "We had only two small problems, One was the use of the keybox by the front door."

    We are of fairly small stature, and it was set a little too high for comfort. It was also not easy to use, as the small black catch was rather stiff. The other was the toilet seat in the en-suite bathroom. It is impossible to keep the seat raised, which for a man is awkward! Apart from those small niggles, it is an extremely well-equpped and appointed property, which we would happily book again if we were to return to the area.

  • "The bungalow is ideally situated in a peaceful area near the beach with easy access to coastal walks and the popular Hive Cafe."

    The family room was such a pleasant comfortable social area surrounded by a pretty private garden. The bungalow is light and airy and immaculately clean. The house met all our needs and was a haven for four days during these troubled times when socialising in pubs and cafes was not advisable. We would highly recommend Pebbles and would like to return in the future in order to experience the many excellent eateries Burton Bradstock has to offer.

  • "Second time we have stayed at Pebbles, great location!"

    ! Would like to highlight there is a damp problem in the outside wall,mainly the master bedroom corner wardrobe, clothes became very cold and damp!!! Also the same wall in the shower room neeeds attention. The drive in the front garden area could be greatly improved with very little cost, awkard angle and shrubs in the way, difficult to park 2 medium cars! Apart from that, very good accomodation.
