"Perfect hassle-free family getaway. Built-in garden,beach and views!"
This is a beautifully presented house. Buckets and spades and teddies awaited the children, as well as cakes for all of us and wine for the grown-ups. The garden suited all needs from toddlers letting off steam to adults enjoying the sunset with a glass of wine and the direct access to the beach was perfect. Inside, it was a real 'beach house' in decor and very comfortable, with everything we needed and plenty of space. A quiet spot too, despite being a very short walk from cafe etc. and lovely to sit in the lounge and watch the boats go by. A credit to the owner who went the extra mile quite literally when one of us left our mobile on leaving, and she retrieved it and followed us to the ferry with it with minutes to spare!
I am so glad you had a great stay, and that all 3 generations found the perfect spot.

"Fantastic house, beautifully done, great location."
We spent a week at The Beach House. The welcome we received from the owner was fantastic, everything was beautifully clean and organised and we were provided with everything we could have needed. Gurnard is a great place for children with a lovely beach, cafe and children's playground. We will be returning soon!
Thanks for that, I do all the cleaning myself to ensure it is of the highest standard. Gurnard is a fantastic place to holiday as well as live, with so much for all ages to do or just to sit and watch the sun go down.
