Fantastic UK holidays are available at thousands of private holiday homes dotted up and down the country. Whether you fancy cream teas in Devon, vibrant city breaks in London or a Highland fling in Scotland, there are plenty of UK breaks that really cut the mustard.
Explore England and its varied landscape – spend your break in a charming Cotswold cottage or visit the Lake District or the Norfolk Broads. In Wales, book a city break in Cardiff or Swansea, test out your surfing skills on the Gower or find out why so many fall in love with Snowdonia and Anglesey.
Go to Scotland to join the crowds at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and Military Tattoo. You could take to the slopes in Aviemore or get back to nature on the Isle of Skye. Northern Ireland has plenty to tempt the traveller too: visit Belfast, the walled city of Derry or see the natural beauty of the Fermanagh Lakelands.

Thank you for you valued feedback. I am pleased to say the owners of Bay House have now dealt with the issue of the communal hallway and lobby area and have re-decorated it all themselves. This means the initial impression is now as good as the one you get when you walk into the apartment itself.

Thank you for your valued feedback. We are working with the owner to try and improve the communal entrance area which is a shared ownership situation so not directly controlled by the owner of the apartment. The apartment is mostly used by couples and is priced accordingly and competitively for the location, being just 1 minute walk to the beach, and the fact it includes very close parking which is a big bonus in East Looe. The use of the extra bedroom is at the discretion of guests regarding suitability and as explained in the property listing we do not recommend children under the age of 8 years due to the spiral staircase.

Thank you for taking the time to review. We are sorry you found the beds uncomfortable. Some of the beds themselves have now been replaced as have the mattresses and the pillows have all been checked and replaced where necessary.
Although the stair lift is not used by all, this will remain at the cottage. This does aid our guests with mobility restrictions and without it they would be unable to book.
We have checked the heating and hot water and everything is in good working order. The water does run off of a tank so you may need to boost to get extra hot water when required. We have made sure instructions are still in place at the property for future guests.
We are sorry you felt there was a delay with the security deposit. The security deposit was returned within 7 working days to the person who made the booking. Unfortunately we had not been made aware that the cheque needed to go back to a different person in the party and so unfortunately there was a further delay. As standard all security deposits are returned with 7 - 10 working days. We recommend paying by card or bank transfer for quicker payment turn around times.
If you come back to Bosham again please do keep us in mind. We would be pleased for you to see Oysters new and refreshed look.

In our advert we have tried to show that the apartment is fairly compact & set out for 2 people. The photos, I think, give that impression.
• The carpets in the Bathroom and Kitchen are designed for the use because for the ease of cleaning (by intense wet cleaning if required). The manufacturer claims that they are hygienic – rot proof and certified resistant to microbial attack. It was sad that the guest failed to notice that there was a freshly laundered bathmat & toilet mat which covered most of the floor, and is changed weekly.
• We put out crockery and cutlery for the average couple, but we do say that if anything else is required, please ask we have a store of such items not more than 30 yards from the property, so could have been supplied almost at once.
• Saving water is an Island obsession and we are all doing our best, as to whether a dishwasher for 2 people is the answer, is a debating point. Most machines seem to hold 8 settings at least. Does this mean that we should put enough cutlery, plate, pots & pans etc. for the few, to be fair, who wish to store up for one wash now and again?
• The comment regarding the freezer compartment is a fair one and has been under discussion for a while, but all I can say is that up to now, most people do very little cooking and we have tended to cater for the majority.
• Ants? Not much I can say on this one, the flowers are kept in a cool-room until they are put into the rooms, but all over the world there are insects of varying kinds and sprays and powders are frowned upon.
• One of the problems of letting, as anyone in the business would say, is damage done, all be it by accident which can be done to furnishings whether old or brand new. The leather chairs that are referred to are about 4 years old and were as good as they day they were bought until we let to a couple who had some major health problems. The medication that the gentleman had to use on his skin caused a reaction with the material of the chair; the top layer of the leather seemed to peel off where his hands rubbed on it. Now I appreciate that this is of no interest to visitors but the covers that we had made to measure was the best we could do until replacement time comes.
As a matter of interest the lounge carpet that had a quantity of red wine spilled on it on the night before departure by another guest, this cost us a new carpet, and while there was an offer to put right the damage the replacement cost £1500. Needless to say we stood that. I accept that the suggestion about sofas versus individual recliner chairs is an interesting subject for debate. I prefer a chair myself.
• We were very excited that the towelling got a plus as they are also 4 years old and are washed and dried, in the open air not machine dried, by my wife, who in her former life was Sister in Charge at our hospital and has an old style matronly approach to such things and not least of all cleanliness.
My final comment is on directions to the property, it was very sad that the plan to fly from Exeter was spoiled by the weather and you had to travel via Penzance and sail on the Islands ship. We tried to contact you on the ship, but your mobile was not working, to tell you that transport would be on the quay to meet you, but as it was you decided to walk to the apartment and when you phoned to ask the way, my wife gave you directions and I was at the gate to meet you and so I am not sure what more we could have done.
As to the question “I wonder why there is only one review”, we have had many, many very happy visitors stay with us over the years, and some come twice a year and guard their chance to come by not telling the story in case their dates become booked. We only joined Holiday Lettings last year 2012. We are sorry that we didn’t do it for you, but we will go on doing our very best for future guests, as we have done for over 50 years, after all we want everyone who comes to us to have the best that we can offer.
