Great little house and location

4 of 5
House was lovely, the only critisism we had was that the shower could have been better. We had a great weekend by the seaside.

Fabulous family home in a brilliant location

5 of 5
We came with a big group of girlfriends for the weekend and had a brilliant stay. The house has everything you could want. Its very spacious, and homely (not showhome) which suits me very well as I hate going to places where you feel you canot touch anything. Everything very clean and lots of stylish touches too. The games room is brilliant-we spent much of saturday night drinking and playing table tennis and pool. We went for long walks around the island and ate out at some lovely pubs. All in all a marvellous break-I cant wait to come back with my husband and children too. Thak you Caroline for you great hosting too!

Simply beautiful holiday cottage!

5 of 5
Beautiful holiday cottage with fabulous decor & a true warm and cosy environment. We loved the location with pubs, shops & restaurants all on the doorstep. We also spent evenings in with the well equipped kitchen making it easy to cook & dine in (although so many good take away options too!). The cottage felt so spacious & the beds SO comfortable. We highly recommend & loved our stay here!
