"Lovely cosy cottage"

We had a lovely week staying in Fox Cottage with a 4 year old and a 1 year old. It was perfect for us, with travel cot and high chair so no need to bring our own and stair gate so no safety concerns. Having a washing machine and tumble dryer also made life a lot easier. The cottage had everything we needed and was cosy and beautifully decorated and well maintained. Good location for walks, shops, beach etc. Highly recommended!

"Excellent accomodation and location"

Well furnished, modernised cottage with all mod cons. Beds were excellent, extremely comfy and the extras provided such as milk and a cream tea on arrival, a decent flat screen tv with freesat and dvd were really appreciated. The cottage was very clean and it is obvious the owner goes that little bit extra to maintain this high standard. Good position for local amenities and with private parking provided the cheap rail tickets along the beautiful coast railway must be utilised.
