    We had to clean plates and glasses before using as covered in greasey fingerprints. Bed very comfortable and upstairs was much cleaner.

    Gorgeous little hamper left for us which was very much appreciated. Clean bedding and towels provided. Great communication with the owner. Parking spot a little bit tight due to the bushes but accessible. Would definitely recommend.

  • "We had an amazing few days here, the house was beautifully clean ad smelt lovely."

    The beds were extremely comfortable especially after busy days out and about. The garden was enclosed so absolutely perfect for our dog. It was like home from home. Remember to park in the correct car park space can be a bit confusing if you approach from a different way but it is clearly marked. Thank you we will return.

  • "A lovely comfortable little house."

    Although it is in the middle of a row of houses there was no noise at all. The house is about a mile from the beach which is beautiful. There was a very generous welcome hamper and toiletries in the bathroom. Would certainly return

    Thank you for leaving the house so clean and tidy. I was pleased to see you had watered the plants, can't believe how much they had grown in a week. Thank you for your great feedback, really pleased you enjoyed yourselves. Kind regards Heather Goody Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely stay at Drifters Cove."

    The extra little touch of the welcome hamper stocked with tea, coffee, biscuits, crisps and scones was a lovely surprise, coupled with the milk, cream and butter in the fridge. Also the little basket of goodies in the bathroom was a really nice touch. Drifters Cove is well equipped with absolutely everything you need and was spotless on arrival. The directions to the parking space were spot on and this is very close to the house, just round the corner. The enclosed garden was a godsend for our dog where she could go outside and be safe. All in all, a lovely property and a good base for exploring the local area.

    The welcome basket was a lovely gesture after a long drive. Everything you needed was thoughtfully provided. The shower is a little gentle but perfectly usable. Will definitely consider staying here again.

  • "We had a wonderful time the place was clean and comfortable the coffee tea."

    and biscuits were a nice surprise, there was milk in the fridge. Only upset because I made a mistake in parking in wrong place ( number 25) instead of number 25 the opposite end to cottages , We had an enormous banging on the door and a man was very irate shouting , I said to him sorry but stop swearing while my wife was there, This made no diferance to him a very ignorant person ( my wife was amazed I kept my cool ) but i was very annoyed and upset with his attitude, But all was ok when i parked else where. But as I said the owner could not do enough for us thank you Norman and Pam ( 29 march 1st April)_ 0l
