"Bright, comfortable and extremely convenient for the beach"

We really enjoyed our family holiday (age range 5-70 years) in Gull's Cry. The beach is fantastically close, the coastal path was at its most beautiful with both heather and gorse in full bloom, … More

"Perfect for a seaside break."

Stunning location in a very quiet spot overlooking a beautiful sandy bay. The accommodation and facilities were of a very high standard with great access to cliffs and walks. We thoroughly enjoyed the stay and would recommend it to anyone.

"Superb accommodation with magnifient views"

The accommodation is spacious and comfortable with very tasteful decor. The owners welcomed us warmly and made us feel immediately at home. Fully functional kitchen equipped with everything you would need for a long stay with family! Large high quality clean white fitted bathroom of which I especially liked the spot lighting and large shower! Also to have an en-suite on the 1st bedroom was ideal. Stunning sea views from lounge area especially, yet all you need to do is step outside and experience a spectacular panorama of sea, hills, cliffs and sky! The accommodation is sheltered and private and has immediate access to the hilltop paths behind which go for miles. Beautiful views leading up to property. Wi-fi connected for us fine, and very much enjoyed the large TV with loads of channels including Sky Sports, although there was hardly any time for TV as you could literally step outside the house and throw a stone to hit the beach! Thanks once again, I will be booking again VERY soon indeed!

"A beautiful location with sandy beach on your doorstep"

We stayed here for three nights in April. The property is an extension of the owner's house and has been recently completed. It is reached via a VERY narrow road so small car recommended. Parking was a bit of a problem as access is shared with a few other properties, although the owner assured us once his own property is completed there will be two parking spaces available. Good quality building work with a new kitchen and bathrooms, en-suite in main bedroom. Slightly disappointed that the property didn't have the view I was expecting from the lounge but when it is right on the beach it doesn't really matter! Internet access not available while we were there, but the owner assured us this would be addressed.All in all, a very nice property in a beautiful location.

Unfortunately some factual errors in this review. The 'narrow' road is wide enough for large 'Sprinter' vans, easily passable with Transits and no problem for large cars. It is single lane with passing spaces. The internet is fully functional - not a good wi-fi signal to the end bedrooms, but good for the lounge, kitchen and main bedroom. More updated photographs show the view from the lounge. The parking spaces are fully sorted out now, so no problems there.
