  • "Nice cottage in a quiet location and handy for nearby beaches and walks."

    Furniture in lounge area could do with updating as looking a bit shabby. Bedrooms are a good size and beds firm but comfortable. Plenty of room for parking.Good place for dogs, some lovely quiet beaches, Hells mouth beach only a mile or so away good for ball throwing. Nice shared garden and own private patio with table and chairs.

  • "We absolutely loved our stay, the house, location were perfect and we would definitely go back and stay here again."

    I think it’s worth mentioning that the garden is shared with two other properties and not enclosed. This didn’t matter to us as we were out all day walking and the property next door was empty. We were asked to have our dog on the lead at all times which we were happy to do. I feel in the hight of summer this may have not been so easy, or If you spend all your time at the property. This is in no way a negative review, I just know it can be difficult if you can’t let you dog off the lead and roam around the garden.
