  • "Lovely cottage, spotlessly clean with everything we needed provided."

    Would definitely recommend and hope to return there soon.

  • "Lovely cottage, lovely surroundings."

  • "Cottage was incredibly clean."

    So much so that the amount of bleach everywhere got on my clothes and ruined an irreplaceable £65 top. If you love the peace and quiet then this is the place to go. Nothing really in the area and the Kaskane bar required you to book even just for a drink which was disappointing. The beach is lovely and perfect for dogs. The cottage was warm and cosy but the sofa was uncomfortable due to the sofa bed. The shower is a wet room and water gets everywhere. Ideally situated if you don’t mind driving everywhere.

  • "The cottage is very clean and comfortable, the kitchen can only be used by one person as it is small but it’s facilities were ok, there is no breakfast bar in this cottage as listed."

    The garden is enclosed, not communal, which suited us and our dog, the shower is not as shown in the listing either, it is a wet room so care needs to be taken as water goes everywhere, the shower itself was ok. There is no sofa bed as listed and no radio /cd player. It’s a nice little cottage for two plus dog and a good base for touring the area. Food in the restaurant was good and very reasonably priced, staff very lovely and helpful.

    The outside area had a front and side area to catch the sun which was really good. The cafe/bar on site has really excellent food and recommend the steak pie. Also the sandy beach at Skinnigrove is amazing and our dog loved it. Would certainly recommend a stay at the Kascane cottages.

    The whole holiday,from start to finish was wonderful.The cottage itself was like a home from home.It was clean,warm,tidy and we'll equipped,and although I didn't have a lot of contact with the owners,I found them very welcoming,and very helpful.The location itself was lovely,as was the local area,with lots to see and do.There was only one,very minute thing,and that was mattress,which could possibly do with replacing.With that in mind,I had a lovely time,on both occasions,and I will definitely be returning!(providing there will be availability!)

  • "Very quiet and peaceful."

    Due to lock down in area, not great deal to do. Enjoyed exercising dogs along the beach several times a day, enjoyed the fresh air. Wanted for nothing in the bungalow. ASDA about 3.5 miles away, all necessities there. Shame about the weather but, hey it was October! Second visit, will not be the last! Highly recommend this bungalow for a peaceful break away from everything and everybody.

  • "The cottage was as described and was comfortable but it was lacking in the kitchen area, only three teaspoons in a cottage meant for three and only four mugs."

    A Pyrex baking dish in the cupboard was covered in baked on fat, saucepans needed to be washed before use. Overall cleanliness could have been better, there were mucky corners on windowsills and in corner by front door. We did have a good week but a a few more mugs and spoons would have been nice and no mucky corners or dirty dishes. We had a Skyes cottage two years ago and it was top class so we did expect it to be better equipped and cleaner. However we will use Skyes again because if people don’t inform you of these things you won’t know and these things could easily be put right
