    The property was clean and tidy. fully equipped kitchen , and bathroom . Tastefully decorated throughout the property .

    The cottage itself is tucked away in a lovely quiet corner with no noise whatsoever and I’ll certainly be returning here .

  • "We stayed at this lovely cottage during August and had a great time with our two boys playing on the beach and riding the open-top bus between the bays."

    Everything was very clean and the kitchen was well-equipped. It is set back a bit from the road and we found it very quiet at night. Our boys our very young so we moved some nice furniture to avoid damage and used a couple of chairs as an improvised stair gate - but nothing we wouldn't have had to do elsewhere. We did have some worries about the parking since we have just got a bigger car - but, actually, we didn't have any problems. Although the turn off is on a fairly steep hill, you can then take your time reversing. We would love to return some time. Thanks!

  • "Beautifully spacious and comfortable cottage."

    We seemed to find a new 'thing' to look at each day. Parking could be an issue if you have a large vehicle. A lovely walk down to the seafront from the cottage.

    Reviewed by Julie5.0Jun 2023

  • "Very basic property located off a steep hill."

    Shared parking is difficult unless you have a small car and excel at reversing. The seaside theme throughout the house is a bit OTT especially as the property is a long way from the beach. Expensive for what it is. The mattresses and pillows urgently need renewing.

    The seaside theme reflects the fact that the cottage is only a 10 minute walk to the beach and feedback generally suggests that our guests like the theme. The off street parking is on the flat however is off a hill. The mattresses and pillows are new and are checked regularly for any wear and tear. There are spare pillows available. Thank you for your feedback. Property Owner

  • "We spent a lovely week at Narnia Cottage."

    It certainly was a home from home. The house was decorated beautifully, especially the second bedroom which our 4 and 5 year-old boys loved. The beds were so comfortable that they slept all night! The kitchen was extremely well equipped. I cooked most days and there was everything that I needed. The location was excellent with only a 10 minute walk into the town. There was a steep incline, but the house isn't very far up the hill and didn't cause us any problems. The only problem we had during our stay was getting woken up at 6am everyday by the neighbour getting ready for work. The neighbour's bathroom was next to Narnia's main bedroom and the walls were paper thin and we could hear everything! This would be the only reason why we wouldn't stay here again as the house was perfect in every other way.

  • "The cottage was very nice clean and everything was there."

    My husband uses a wheel chair for walking a long way. The hill the cottage was on was very steep so I found that I used the car a lot more than I would normally. I didn’t think much of the bed and the plastic under cover made us sweat. I wouldn’t book this cottage if you had any walking difficulties. We did have a good holiday

  • "This is a really comfortable cottage, well presented and has some very nice touches."

    A pleasant surprise - Netflix - and the WiFi was superb. The cottage was very clean and milk, a box of chocolates and cereals, left by the owner, were a lovely thought. The thing that spoilt it was the claim that it was only ten minutes from the beach and no mention was made of the steep hill leading to the cottage. I booked the cottage with the claim it was only a ten minute walk, but it took at least 20 mins, with the return journey uphill nearly all the way. This caused problems for me. Again I wouldn’t have booked the cottage, knowing it was on a steep hill. Also there is parking just outside the cottage, but the entrance drive to the cottage is very narrow in places. With only an average sized car, we found it difficult. With a big car nearly impossible,and you cannot park on the main road as it is disc parking only, and you are liable for a fine. Our little dog enjoyed herself though, and with the garden being fully enclosed, it was perfect for her. Though, because of the points mentioned, I would not go to Narnia again, but our stay was nevertheless enjoyable.

  • "We were very pleasantly surprised when we arrived at Narnia cottage."

    It was well furnished with comfortable sofas and beds. The facilities were well appointed with everything catered for. We arrived on Friday 2nd November and settled in immediately until departure on Monday 5th. The cottage is a good place to explore from and nice to get back to. Though the cottage isn't entirely secluded, with it's small courtyard, it felt like it. The only drawback is the steep approach to the cottage. It might be advisable to make this apparent in the description. People with mobility issues will have problems walking to and from the cottage. Overall,a very pleasant short break and we would certainly consider going back and recommending it to friends and family.

    The home away from home comfort factor, continued into the sitting room which was large and contained 2x3 seater sofas and still left plenty of space to move around. The galley kitchen was well laid out with lots of storage space and adequately equipped for 4+ people. The holiday themed décor was bright and was a cheerfull reminder of why we were there. The 2 bedrooms were lovely the main one containing what I'm sure was a kingsize bed and still had plenty of space to move around to access the bedroom furniture. The second bedroom had 2 single beds that were well positioned to take advantage of the size and room layout. The bathroom bath /shower layout worked well because as bathrooms go it was larger than average. My wife and I were very impressed overall and it made our holiday as good as it gets.
