Great holiday location

5 of 5
We all enjoyed our stay in this house. It was very clean and well maintained, and we thoroughly recommend it to anyone who would like to visit this area. We were a bit worried as pets are allowed but we found no evidence to suggest that guests were abusing the rules. Kingsand and Cawsand are only a little walk from the property. There are many walks and activities to keep your busy ( my daughter and husband took a canoe trip around the shoreline) and the pubs with their occasional live music. The village shop on the Square is a great little place to get a pizza or some fish and chips( there are seats outside where you can sit or you can take your food down to the beach). The owners are very friendly. We love the area and can't wait to plan our next trip.

Ideal Cottage to chill out

5 of 5
Nice small and silent cottage. The equipment (like refrigerator, washingmachine and so on) seems to be almost new. The friendly landlords live nearby but not to close. If you have any questions, they are pleased to suggest trips, some written suggestions also available. A nice old Pub is just 10 minutes walk away. We had beautiful days at the Kellwyk Cottage.
