  • "We had a wonderful week here even though the weather was not to good."

    The house is spotlessly clean. So many rooms, wonderful dining room, lovely comfortable living room, but the best is the conservatory so much light, lovely and warm when the sun shines we used the room for reading and games and jigsaws puzzles. The garden is fully fenced off so your dogs can go outside without having to worry about them. You have everything you need in the kitchen to make meals. The beach is two minutes walk away. There were only two of us and we used the double bedroom which had plenty of storage I peeped into the other three bedrooms and they were all lovely wonderful for a large family. If you want a luxury home for a lovely holiday choose this house.

    Thank you so much for the lovely review! We’re glad you enjoyed your stay at Topsails :) Property Owner
