Great stay

5 of 5
We had a pleasant stay in the Knot over New Year 2017/2018. Summary of our thoughts on the rental: - good views of surrounding farmland and sea - stylish design and equipment - very clean and tidy on arrival - well equipped kitchen (Nespresso coffee machine, lots of pots and pans, plenty of crockery, dishwasher, tea/coffee, dishwasher tablets provided) - washing machine/tumble dryer (a must with small children) - toys and board games, colouring books, pens, etc - close (5-10min walk) to beaches and pub (we recommend The Cove pub for food and drink... They also do takeaways, which is great for families with small children) - good communication from the owner on getting to the house, etc. Also security deposit returned in good time.

Beautiful renovated house in a great position!

Wonderful New Year holiday week in this lovely decorated house. Really well equipped and furnished. Easy access to town, harbour, coves, ferry and lovely walks. Great parking. A little suggestion - perhaps better to have left ground floor as wooden floor boards! Cream coloured carpets and light coloured upholstery are not very dog or child friendly!
