"Special house - entire family had a wonderful time."
This house is presented in such a way that it makes your holiday feel special but not so you are not able to relax and enjoy yourself. A delightful location for a laid back break. Well equipped with all mod cons. There is plenty to do within short car ride but the house is so nice you might not stray too far. Grandparents, parents and kids all loved it and we will definitely be back!

5 Aug 2012
we decided to look for a short at home holiday this year as our teenage children have so many demands on their time that parents do not top their list of priorities
the fishermans cottage exceeded every expectation we had It really does do what it says on the tin and so much more
the interior furnishings bedrooms and bathrooms are supremely furnished and the ultimate in comfort and style
every time we thought we needed something we opened a drawer and found it from utensils ,equipment ,wi fi ,books games dvds and so on it is all there and in such good taste as well
we even managed to fit in a game of swingball while enjoying a nice chilled bottle of prosecco on the patio
from the moment we arrived to see the welcome bottle of wine and chocolate which was quickly consumed we were totally at home
This is far from an average holiday let property
I did wonder why there were not more reviews on such a fantastic property i now realise why .As when you stay there once you want to return again and again and you want to keep his haven of luxury and tranquility to yourself so that it does not become too popular
As we have already booked again for november i think it is only fair we are not selfish and spread the word about this property
Just to add a few points for reference
The golf was amazing for our two teenage boys
The girls enjoyed pony trekking and the pool in the hotel
There is an information book bursting with ideas for things to do
but our biggest pleasure was enjoying the beautiful surroundings we were staying in and
we were able to enjoy a most relaxed family holiday
As you might have gathered by this review we can not reccomend this highly enough
