  • "A really beautiful cottage and the large, contained garden with the view of the mere really made it really special."

    There was a very thoughtful welcome pack and I was impressed by the Egyptian cotton towels, just like we use at home but we'd taken our own with us as most places don't have the same quality products as we do. There were even high end shower gels and shampoos provided but again, we'd taken our own as we didn't expect that. In that respect, we were blown away. The vacuum was a very good one too which I feel is important when cleaning up after dogs. The only negatives I would add was that we couldn't use our own frying pan on the hobs (I'm vegetarian so always take my own with me and Phil uses the other one) because the hob wouldn't work without the pan that was provided so, purely for this, 2 pans and 2 spatulas would have been handy and fly curtains would have really made our stay much more comfortable because it was so hot and we had the doors open for the dogs and being close to the water, flies were a nuisance. It was a long walk to the centre of Hornsea but this helped us to do more steps without particularly trying to so there was a silver lining to that little cloud. :) On the whole, we had an absolutely wonderful stay and we'd like to come back again, at least once a year. We love the house and the standard of everything and the dogs loved it too. We had to take Luna to the vets whilst in Hornsea and Peel Vets are a wonderful vet that helped us with her.

  • "Needs some attention."

    Upstairs bathroom taps loose, main light not working. One dining room chair broken. Insufficient glasses in kitchen

    Thank you for your feedback. The upstairs bathroom tap was a little loose, now tightened. All lights were working correctly but one uplighter bulb gone, now replaced. One of the chairs in the kitchen was cracked and damaged. Now replaced. There were more than enough glasses for every occasion. Not sure why you thought there were not enough. Property Owner

  • "We have had a wonderful stay at 8 Mere View Avenue."

    The property is extremely clean, well appointed, very well furnished, very comfortable, well equipped, and a great location. One of, if not the best, holiday cottages we have stayed in, and we’ve had many! We enjoyed it so much that whilst there we have booked again for another week… If you are looking for a family friendly, dog friendly house (totally secure garden for the dogs), very well equipped and extremely comfortable, in a great location with great views of the mere, a short drive/walk to the beach and with the delights of East Yorkshire on your doorstep, this is the place for you! (Whiteheads fish and chip shop very close by are not to be missed - the best fish and chip shop we’ve ever found… 10/10!) A brilliant holiday, and we’ll be back! Many thanks

  • "Superb place to stay."

    With stunning views. Only a few very minor issues. One was the vacuum cleaner, a old coal miner with major lung issues had more suction and the pond needs alot more protection.

  • "Lovely property with almost everything we needed."

    Views are amazing., Beds were very comfy and a good height.ideal for disabled hubby. It felt very comfy and homely. We were a bit disappointed that the sofas didnt recline, they were recliners but had no power to them. The plug in the downstairs sink wouldnt stay in so we ended up using a bowl.Also toilet seat was a bit wobbly.Front step was quite high but we always carry a small step with us so it didnt matter. We loved our holiday and would definitely return. The location was excellent and it was sooo quiet.The birds were everywhere! Its only a short walk to the mere, tesco is at the bottom of the road and the seafront is about half an hour walk. Hornsea freeport has an excellent soft play for the kids and numerous shops.A great property for a family break or as a group of friends as there are various sleeping options. Really enjoyed could have stayed longer.

  • "Beautiful very spacious home."

    Very family friendly. Lots of room inside & also outside for 3 cars. Counter size fridge & counter size freezer. Garden well kept & tidy. 2 double beds with 2 twin rooms. It would benefit families if upstairs bath also had a shower over, but we coped. (There were 4 adults & 4 children in our family). Nice steady walk along the trans pennine way to reach Hornsea beach (30mins). Lovely fish n chips from Sullivans. Highlight for me was seeing murmerations over the mere, watching from the comfort of my chair! Magical!

  • "There was a problem with a TV not working and no iron."

    We contacted the owner via text on the phone number we had been supplied with and he quickly replied, was friendly and helpful and quickly worked to remedy our issues over the next couple of days, with no inconvenience to ourselves . The house was very clean and tidy, we did store a lounge rug in the garage for our stay as we felt it had a strong unpleasant dog smell, we don't have dogs, but the details of the house did say it was dog friendly and we took a chance on booking. This may put us off booking place listed as a dog friendly place in future though. The property had good facilities overall, and was comfortable inside with a nice garden and garden furniture. To make it an ideal holiday home for me it would benefit from providing a hairdryer for guests to use, extra cutlery, oven gloves and dish cloths, a full sized ironing board rather than the table top one provided. In a previous seaside house we stayed in there were buckets and spades and garden toys for guests to borrow which we appreciated and so the owner may consider putting some in this property. The beds would benefit from the addition of some thick mattress toppers to add to their comfort and a full size mirror inside the walk in wardrobe would be useful. The house is in a good location, great view of the Mere, walking distance to a supermarket, the beach, the town and shops and pubs. Hornsea is a nice seaside town with a good clean beach with lifeguards when we were there patrolling a part of the beach allocated to swimmers. Hornsea welcomes tourists and I would recommend it for a seaside holiday. Good parking at the property. We had a very happy and comfortable stay at 8 Mere View Avenue and I would give it high scores in all areas. If the sun had come out more and we could have spent more time on the beach and in the sea it would have been a perfect family holiday destination.

  • "House accommodated a range of ages and had everything you needed."

    The welcome pack was appreciated and not expected. The view was beautiful and didn’t want to leave. Only thing I would recommend to change is the mattress on the upstairs double as it was hard and uncomfortable.

  • "The property is brilliant, location is great an easy walk to the beach and being able to look out at the Mere is just great."

    The garden is lovely and the terrace a real sun trap, the walk to tesco is less than 15 minutes and all paved, brilliant amount of parking too, bed extremely comfortable, we loved our stay. The arrival pack was very welcome. A few things missing in the kitchen like tongs and large serving spoons, could do with a large bowl, we bought some extra pegs as after going to the beach there were not enough to hang wet things on the line.

  • "What a lovely place to stay."

    The view of the mere from the front room was so picturesque. The fire was all set up and ready to light on our first cool night, and there was lots of extra logs and kindling for the next few days. The house looks recently refurbished and was extremely clean. The welcome pack was very appreciated and the additional info left. We would definitely recommend and go again. It is well set up for those bringing a dog and those who are not, with closable baby gates to the bedrooms. Great walks round the Mere 2 minutes away and a big Tesco about a 10 minute walk. Lovely beach and Floral Cafe definitely worth a visit for brunch.
