  • "Really enjoyed our stay at seascope ; it proved to be a perfect base for going off exploring the stunning coastline and surrounding areas."

    Having the garden with a private entrance to the dunes was a highlight of the property and a perfect quick access for one eager pup. Having a 2nd bathroom off the kitchen with a bath was also ideal for cleaning pup down after a dip in the sea. **The property doesn't have a freezer or icebox so might be worth bringing your own ice making machine if the though of a warm g&t of an evening is not appealing. On a whole we thoroughly enjoyed our weeks stay and would highly recommend.

  • "Seascope far exceeded our expectations, with its best feature being the location."

    A stroll down the steps led to the vast grassy dunes and the pebbly, dog-friendly beach beyond. Considering we were visiting in peak summer time, it was like having the beach to yourself, with other beach users just a speck in the distance. . The property itself was tidy, light, clean and ideal for our requirements, and the view of the morning sunrise from the main bedroom was truly amazing.

  • "This was our second visit to Seascope and we had a wonderful time."

    The cottage was as well maintained as it was 5 years ago infact most of the furniture had been upgraded since our last visit. I would like to say that we would return again but looking at the vast increases you have imposed for next year {almost £2250 for the same week} it is very unlikely

    The views were brilliant and the ability to just walk down onto the beach from our cottage was brilliant. Lovely and well kept place and our thanks to the owner who let us use it. my only comment was if they had left a bucket and mop |I would have washed the floor before we left. Nevertheless this place is highly recommended.

    Beds were comfy and the view on Christmas morning was stunning looking out on clear blue skies and the sea as a mill pond. I would definitely recommend the property to anyone visiting the area, especially if you are a dog owner, there are some beautiful walks and the beach is dog friendly. Thankyou for a great Christmas week, made even better as the property had been festivly decorated which was a fantastic touch.

  • "We loved the beautiful view of the sea from the bedroom each morning."

    The accommodation was very comfortable although lacked attention to detail. The shower upstairs dribbled out small drops of water and was unusable. The shower downstairs kept sliding down and was difficult to use because of this. The kitchen utensils for cooking were very poor quality. We had to buy a large frying pan and the one there was small and very worn. The curtains in the lounge were hanging off in parts. The interior front door didn’t lock. The pillows were very flat and uncomfortable. However, the location was wonderful. You must keep your dog on a lead on the front green area but once you get to the beach, down some very steep steps, they can run free. The Sailor’s Home pub is to the right, about a ten minute walk along the beach, and serves home cooked food at a reasonable price. It’s dog friendly and welcoming. We really enjoyed our week but probably won’t return due to the above mentioned points. These things make a wealth of difference to me and would be easily put right.

    My friend struggled with a small hand held mirror. Need an internal bin as you don't take rubbish out immediately so end up with recyle stuff hanging about looking a mess.Used the bag for messy black bin stuff but again it's hanging about on show.maybe a nice bin in the corner of the front porch. Everything else was delightful loved sitting on the upstairs bedroom balcony taking in the view. Thank you was a lovely holiday.

    Went back at 3.30 st cottage not been cleaned was told it would be 2 more hours before we could get in. Finally got in at 5.45 to no loo roll dirty curtains on patio doors, bedroom lamps dirty and the shade falling apart. Very little water pressure on both upstairs and downstairs shower. Sofas totally different to what was in the pictures at time of booking. In able to lock inner patio doors no key plus hand clip broken. Boiler in master bedroom came on 3 times throughout the night every night. Boiler not boxed in so it’s the first thing you see when you open the wardrobe. Second time we have stayed at the complex different cottage last year. This year loved the holiday let down by accommodation.

    Just updating the well used items would be the icing on the cake and doesn't cost a fortune Otherwise a cracking holiday with superb views first class beaches and Mediterranean weather!!!!!! We will return time and time again Many thanks for a great holiday Susan & Mark Shaw
