Beautiful and fantastic location. Couldn't get in at the boathouse restaurant so they recommended their other restaurant. The fish shack please people don't fall for this. It was revolting and spoiled our last night.
I’d like to echo the praise for the property as it’s bursting with character - we loved the fires, the light and airy conservatory where we spent most of our time and finally the large garden which will be great for all visitors whether they want a secure space for dogs / children or a sunny spot for a quiet moment of relaxation.
The kitchen is like staying in someone’s home; every drawer and cupboard is bursting with everything you might need from cooking utensils to ample pots and pans to cook for a family. This is a major bonus for us as we have a young family and therefore eating out is a rare treat.
We have young children so I appreciate that our needs will vary to those of families with older children, however I’m assuming that we aren’t the first and won’t be the last so hopefully this will be useful for other travellers and the owners, as I would encourage anyone with a family to stay here.
There were a few small things that would provide a significant improvement for us;
- we were offered a cot and saw that a highchair was listed but there was no mention of a stair gate so we squeezed ours into the car like it was the krypton factor challenge. There is in fact 2 baby gates available so no need to bring your own. For families with young children it would great if we had been made aware of these items and asked if we’d like them to be put in place in advance of our arrival.
- there is a plentiful supply of cleaning products which is useful, however these are freely accessible in the kitchen / bathroom and for me I would like these to be in an out of reach cupboard or one with child locks rather than stood on the floor next to the loo etc.
- because cleaning products / kitchen items are at small person height we tried to keep him out of those rooms, however the downstairs doors don’t close properly so we ended up closing the conservatory door to restrict his roaming - it would be nice to leave this open to allow heat to circulate throughout the house.
The location of the house is great as you can walk within minutes to both shops and the beach, it really is ideally situated.
I hope that this feedback is taken in the manner in which it is intended as we would happily return for another holiday (if you’ll still take us haha!), but a few small changes would make the holiday as relaxing for parents of toddlers as it is for all other visitors.
