Review 1-6 of 6

"The best holiday home we've ever stayed in"

Thanks to Alison who provided a holiday home exactly as described - brilliant sea views and very close to the beach / lighthouse etc. The descriptions / photos don't do the house justice. It is everything we could have wished for and more. And the handover was very relaxed.

It's good of you to take the time to post the review. The feedback is very important to me and a great help to future visitors. I'm glad that you found the information accurate and enjoyed your stay in the cottage so much. Thanks
