"Photograph any stains on the carpet on day one of your holiday!"

Stayed here for 3rd time on an annual basis, with no problems previous two years. This time the owner withheld the deposit as she had decided that all the stains on the carpets (evidence: she photogr… More

We are always sympathetic with accidents and rarely withhold any of the damage deposit - In fact this is the first time we have withheld the whole amount in the 4 years we have been holiday letting. The total costs involved after this stay were far in excess of the damage deposit withheld and this was arbitrated on by an independent agent. The carpet stains mentioned were just one item on a list of many - I'm afraid.

"Not a relaxing winter family environment. Left early :0("

Feb half term, family of 4 with 2 small boys aged 4&3yrs. Sadly a bit disappointed, had everything on paper and first impressions were great but as the week went on we found it quite hard to settle he… More

I'm sorry to hear these guests were not happy. Since this stay we have updated the kitchen equipment and seating in the house. There is a large childrens park about 10 minutes walk away from the cottage in the opposite direction to the beach, but it is tucked away, so I shall give directions in the information pack in the cottage. The beach and miles of coastal walks are of course on the doorstep. I am happy to provide any additional information on the cottage to anyone and will always do what we can to ensure your stay is as comfortable as possible, please let me know at the time so I can do what I can whilst you are still there!

"delightful holiday home"

We really enjoyed our short family break and found the cottage to be very comfortable and the owners very helpful. It is in a lovely peaceful spot,( great looking out on the water watching the swans in the morning, ) but only a quick walk to the local shops for bread+ milk etc. Would recommend this holiday home!
