  • "A fabulous stay in a beautiful location."

    We loved the space to celebrate family events we had missed over the past two years. Kitchen was well kitted out and easy for self catering. Rooms were spacious, even with a travel cot. One bit of feedback would be to get black out blinds as it was quite bright to sleep for light sleepers.

  • "Excellent week thank you in a very nice setting, the only issue was the leaking roof in the en-suite toilet but this was reported when we arrived and I know attempts were made to get it fixed."

    This has not stopped us rebooking for next year in October.

  • "Cottages have everything you need although could do with a spruce up for the price increase this year."

    Fantastic location and was great for our group.

  • "Amazing location."

    Great for families and dogs. So many points of interest for outdoors people. And whilst a car is needed to get into town it wasn't a bind. The property is fantastic with plenty room and even though there was 12 of us, the 2 conservatories and living room meant it didn't feel you were living on top of each other.

  • "Location and facilities are good."

    The building is old so has some quirks. Everything you need is provided for. Gardens kept tidy although drives off the gates could do with a spruce up. Located on John Muir coastal path link.

  • "Location perfect, remote but close enough to shops etc, right on beach for walks."

    Plenty of space with the extra conservatories. Clean and comfortable. Could possibly do with additional storage in bedrooms and some of the single mattresses could be replaced but other than that cottage had anything you would need and the welcome basket a nice touch. Would definately visit again.
