  • "Disappointed with black mould in both bedrooms, on ceiling and around window in front bedroom ."

    You can see mould in front bedroom on website pictures when zoomed in, worse now. Kettle could do with descaling.

  • "Lovely cottage with everything we needed."

    Quiet, peaceful with a great view from the front bedroom over the salt marshes. The local pub and shop are very good, but you do need to book a table at The Dun Cow for evening meals. We only had one small problem, the internet was a bit flaky and we lost the Freeview channels on the TV one evening. We think this was weather related as there were thunderstorms at the time. Otherwise we couldn’t fault it. It was a holiday we had looked forward to for months and the cottage didn’t disappoint.

  • "Loved our stay in this cottage."

    Thank you for the fantastic welcome pack which was really appreciated. Everything we needed was provided in the accommodation, and it was clean and comfortable. Perfect base for birding with a bonus of views across the salt marsh. The secluded garden was very welcome during the very hot weather.

    Thank you so much for your kind feedback and great review. We are so glad to read that you had everything you needed and enjoyed your stay. We are also glad to read that you enjoyed the garden and the views. We love those too. Property Owner

  • "Nice cottage in a lovely location."

    Good views from the front bedroom,only problem is it looks onto the patio of the house in front!Its got a nice little garden but its overgrown and could do with a tidy! The weather was really hot while we were there so a barbecue would have been nice.Parking is a bit tight too as there are a few other properties there.

    Thank you for your feedback. We were glad to read your thought the view was good and the front bedroom view is of the sea, as is visible in the photos of our listing. We do have neighbours and if you look down you will see their patio. Our listing photo does show a house between us and the sea. The garden is regularly maintained and it is a feature of the house to have an abundance of trees and shrubs which is in with keeping with the local area and wildlife. Each cottage on the row has it's own generous parking space, clearly marked out for each property. Property Owner

  • "Had chosen to stay in Seaview Cottage primarily because of its location in Salthouse."

    The added bonus of there being a pub - The Dun Cow serving good meals, a friendly well stocked village shop Salthouse Stores, plus Cookies Crab Shop all within a short walk that could also include a stroll along the Salthouse beach made the cottage an ideal retreat. Seaview Cottage is very comfortable, and spacious for 4 guests to relax in and also well maintained. The well stocked welcome box together with fresh milk and bread in the fridge was a lovely surprise and enjoyed as we settled into our holiday. We wished we could have stayed longer.

    Thank you very much for your kind feedback. It’s fantastic to read that you enjoyed your stay so much and enjoyed the welcome hamper. We also love Salthouse and its uniqueness and have spent many hours walking along the beach. Property Owner

    G. between bannnisters at top of stairs where there was accumulation of dust. Kitchen: Kettle needs regular descaling as could most of tap area. Instructions for microwave would have been useful. Cleaning cloths for use in bathroom and kitchen would have been helpful. Bedrooms: Maybe tog rating of duvets could have been higher in view of cold nights. General: It would have been useful to have clear instructions for recycling/landfill etc. These comments are intended to improve user experience. Seaview Cottage is a spacious property in ideal location.

    Thank you for your feedback, we are glad you enjoyed the space and location. We also love the natural beauty of the area. We have notified the cleaning company and the bannisters have already been addressed, apologies for this. Cleaning cloths in the kitchen are provided. The bedrooms are fitted with individual heaters which allow guests to set their desired temperature. Tog rating is a personal choice and we have tried to stay in the mid range with the heating available so the room can be set to guests desired temperature. The recycling information is included in the information folder within the home. Property Owner

    All the facilities you need, comfy bed, good shower, and a really nice garden for the warmer months The pub, the Dun Cow, does outstanding food just a 10-minute stroll away (take a torch if it’s dark!), while there are great walks along the beach and between the marshes - a haven for wildlife. Only downside was the sofas being very uncomfortable, but previous comments suggest this will be changed soon. Lovely place and would definitely come back.

  • "Lovely warm cosy cottage in a great location."

    Very well equiped and decorated for Christmas. Many of the freeview chanels were unwatchable due to poor signal but smart TV compensated for this but make sure you have a netflix/prime account or take a few books. No DVD player. Sofa's looked fantastic but were possible the most uncomfortable we have ever sat on. Overall a recommended property in a great location.

    Thank you for your feedback. We love that you enjoyed being warm and cosy and appreciated the great location. However, we are disappointed that you did not like the sofas. It is of course a personal preference but we had been in the process of sourcing a new style in fabric rather than leather. They are due for delivery in the coming weeks. We have had the TV technician out and he informed us that occasionally the signal in the whole area can be weak. I am glad you were able to make use of the smart tv. Property Owner

    The welcome box was well chosen. The rooms are spacious, and the sun-room and secluded patio a bonus. The main problem is the pigeons, both the constant loud noise and the mess on my car. Though a very sound sleeper, I was woken at 5:30 by their noise. Seaview wouldn't be the right choice for a light sleeper.

One minor point had I been on my own I would have struggled to open the front door from its lock position also conservatory door. My husband was able to unlock them but maybe a little oil would help. Weather was fantastic and we visited lots of places. We have an electric car so something to think about in the future would be the provision of an electric charger.

    The welcome box was a very generous gesture. Just a couple of things caused concern; - The hot water taps were very meagre and slow to bring down hot water - the bath was very high to step in and out of to shower although the shower itself was very good. This may cause a safety hazard for the less able. In all it was a very enjoyable stay and would be happy to recommend.

  • "A lovely cottage with a great view over the marshes from the front bedroom window."

    Just a couple of little things could have made it top notch. A bin bag was provided in the kitchen waste bin but when we had to empty it, there was rubbish underneath that was not ours. The fridge had not been thoroughly cleaned, bits in the drawers. Quilt covers had not been buttoned up . Nothing too serious but just showed a certain carelessness which was a pity. Like other cottages please could owners leave appliance books so that you can check how they work eg. the oven and microwave. It is just so much easier to look it up in the book rather than fiddle about trying to work out how things go especially after a long journey. Clearer instructions for the key box could have been given in an email as I could not get it to work and had to phone the owner. Overall a lovely area with easy access to walks, great little shop for the basics but the Crab box was not open; too early in the season. Good pub with lovely food.

    We are so sorry to read that the cleaning was not up to par. We will feed your comments back to the cleaning company and can only apologise. Thank you for making us aware. The appliance books would have been located in the cupboard to the left of the oven and microwave for your perusal.

    On entering we were greeted with a lovely little welcome pack. A great start. The cottage was very well equipped (I do take my own wok these days!) throughout. Two comfy beds, warm quilts and superb view out across the marshes) from the front bedroom. The Cottage was always warm, ideal after some of the blustery, wet walks we had. A very good shower was well used. We hunkered down most evenings which was fine. On a personal note the sofa did not suit my back but the conservatory chair did! The Cottage location was ideal for touring the area. A straight forward loop walk from the front door to the shingle beach and back via the village store was a good start, or end, to the day.
