Guest Reviews

We have a book in the cottage where we ask guests to mention if they have a particularly good or bad meal in the area, or if they have enjoyed a day out, and we now have a collection of recommendations for new guests to read. Thanks to everyone who has taken the time and trouble to tell us about their stay. Sometimes people add a comment about the cottage and here are a few extracts we’ve picked out from the more recent reviews.

We stayed over Christmas, and have had a lovely time. The cottage is super cosy, with a fully stocked kitchen. No problem at all cooking Christmas dinner for four. We didn’t go out much as the cottage was so delightful sitting by the log burner. (Christmas 2019)

Snug little cottage

Guest Books

Hope to come here again!

Guest Books

The cottage was not too small and not too big. It was perfect. I enjoyed listening to the seagulls before we went to bed. There were great cliff top walks and we walked for 10 miles. It was very nice to feel the wind in our face. Crabbing was very fun as well, but we only caught one crab because the people before us caught most of them. I love the cottage.

A perfect break in this lovely part of the world

Guest Books
The cottage is ideally situated within walking distance of local shops, and restaurants. We particularly enjoyed being able to go out without using the car to access some fabulous walks. West Bexington via the golf course and back via the beach with a lovely lunch at The Hive Beach Cafe was a particular highlight.
It was lovely to have such a comfortable, well appointed base with everything you need provided. If you have young children I’m sure they will love the room with the cabin bed and the thoughtful selection of books. Would recommend without hesitation for a perfect break in this lovely part of the world.
