The cottage has an unusual and quirky layout but there is adequate space for six, including children. There is also a garden with the most amazing sea views so ample space inside and out. The rooms are fairly small but its a typical traditional cornish cottage.
The coastal path and access to the beach in front of the cottage is under 300 metres from the cottage. We are surrounded by beaches, most are within comfortable walking distance but more than 300 metres away. Perhaps you didn't find the beach infront of the cottage, which is dog friendly all year around, for which I apologise and in future will leave instructions for our guests.
There is designated parking in the private car park opposite the cottage. Photo's and parking instructions are included in the information sent to our visitors and so far no one has had a problem finding it. I am sorry you had difficulty. I will leave contact details of a neighbour, who will be more than happy to give directions, at the cottage for anyone experiencing the same confusion.

As owners of Purbeck Cliffs Apartment we welcome comments and suggestions and have run the apartment very successfully for over 20 years. Each year we are visited by an independent Quality Assurance Assessor recognised by the Tourist Board to check the Apartment and we have consistently maintained our four star rating.
We were sorry this contributor did not enjoy her holiday, despite the beautiful weather they experienced. The comments about the pool were particularly unfair; the pool is kept heated to 81 degrees and above. It is checked at least twice a week and there is certainly no algae growing in it. It is unrealistic to promise to keep the pool totally insect free but we are always happy to give the pool an extra clean if requested.
Each year we redecorate and renew equipment and as part of this ongoing programme items such as the garden seats would clearly have been replaced, had this or some of the other points raised been brought to our attention at the time these would have been dealt with.
Purbeck Cliffs Apartment with its own private swimming pool and 2 acre garden presents outstanding value for money and compares very favourably with similar types of holiday where the swimming pool, sauna and snooker room are shared with other guests.
