  • "Close to shops and beach."

    Small (circa 1909) terraced cottage with partial ground floor refurbishment. Disturbed at night by noisy neighbours Defective and temperamental front door lock, which posed a security risk. House/Garden boundaries offered no privacy. Over priced and disappointing.

    Thank you for your feedback. I am sorry that you felt the property to be disappointing. Whilst there is very little we can do about neighbours noise, we understand how this can impact your holiday and are very sorry about this, the neighbours have since moved away. The front door lock is not defective as we have checked this and would not risk the security of our guests or the house. Naturally being in a terraced house, the gardens are unable to be completely secluded and private but the garden is seperated by hedges and shrubs. I am sorry you did not enjoy your time at Sea Mouse Cottage but do hope you would come back in the future to try again. Property Owner

  • "Really pleased with the property and can’t fault in any way."

    Has clearly been recently decorated to a high standard. It was a lovely touch to arrive and find the welcoming wine and snacks.
