  • "Two unexpected issues affecting guests with age related mobility problems."

    Firstly the car park’s gravel surface meant that wheeled suit cases had to be “man handled” before reaching the paved path leading to Gull cottage. Secondly, private access to the beach was via a steep flight of steps. This precluded taking walks along the shoreline.

  • "It was glorious."

    The view from the bedroom over the sea was fabulous. Sitting on the balcony having coffee with the sounds of the sea a.d the view was wonderful. The special touch of milk in the fridge as well as a sweet treat for us and poo bags and biscuits for the dog were.really thoughtful and made the break even more special. Would love to stay again.

  • "Amazing place,attention to detail is second to none."

    The added extras supplied by the owner were very thoughtful and helpful. My only issue was the fridge which is too small to house a weeks worth of food for 2 people let alone 4. As someone with dietary issues, local eateries only serving meat,fish and High fat foods the fridge needs to be a normal size in order to accomodate their foods ( especially when hot). Apart from that a beautiful cottage and great stay, thank you

  • "The views were fantastic, the property was well equipped but had not been properly cleaned."

    There was a layer of dust over all surfaces and the windows and TV were very smeared. But all in all a very nice place.
