We found Dolphins on babygoes2... and were lured by the photos and the child friendly environment. A real bonus was the connection to nearby Court Farm in Marhamchurch with its pool, tennis, and yoga… More
Thankyou for taking the time for writing a review, your comments are invaluable to me and l respond as follows.
When I say that the Walk to the Beach is 2 minutes that is at an adult's pace and so will vary according to individual especially with those with small children in tow!.. the same will apply when I say 10 mins walk to the local shop.
I do make every effort to ensure that Dolphins is spotless for guests' arrival and leave guidelines about ventilating the property during winter months when the heating is on to prevent condensation/mildue buildup – if this was the case upon your arrival, my apologies and my cleaners have been made aware to be more thorough !
It was indeed most unfortunate that Rosie who offers Yoga & Swimming Lessons AND our caterer, Nicky were both off that week – quite annoying when I discovered that too! And I am sorry that the alternatives offered for Yoga & Catering were not suitable and that I could not find an alternative for the swimming lessons at such short notice.
I can confirm that since your visit the swimming pool area has had a well deserved re-paint and touch up after a busy summer season (one of our winter jobs) .. so should you return this year I can confirm that you will see a difference!
