A well equipped family house in a perfect location

5 of 5
This was our second extended family holiday at Atlantic House. The location next to the beach is ideal for our small grandchildren. Having 2 lounges is ideal for younger and older family members. The house is comfortable and furnished beautifully. The warm outside shower is perfect for the young ones returning from the beach. The house was spotlessly clean on our arrival, and the cleaners did an excellent job in the middle of our stay. We had a couple of maintenance issues on both of our stays. Last year the loft bathroom toilet flush was not working properly, the washing machine broke down and had to be replaced, and the septic tank had to be emptied during our stay...not a pleasant experience! This year there were continuing problems with the downstairs toilet flush, which despite a visit from the plumber remained an issue throughout our stay. However, these issues would not deter us from returning to Atlantic House. Overall a lovely holiday was had by all.

Home from home comforts and more with a warm welcome from the owners.

5 of 5
The property was excellent with all the modern conveniences you could wish for. The only thing I would of liked would of been a King size bed as although the double bed was comfortable a King size should be standard these days where there is room. The owners Katrina & Arthur where lovely people and the location was perfect with a brilliant beach and all local attractions nearby. We like our walking and the south coast walk didn't disappoint. The Ship public house house within the village had a lovely friendly atmosphere and served excellent pub grub. There is also an excellent cycle hire facility in the village with some great cycle routes to explore as we discovered. Would of liked to of returned same time next year but unfortunately was already booked on those dates so obviously a popular place to stay. Enjoyed our stay and holiday very much and will return sometime in the future.
