Everything was of excellent quality and well looked after. The location was just perfect, being just around the corner from Babbacombe Downs with all that is offered there in the way of places to eat and drink, local shops on the doorstep which was great, so lovely not to have to always use the car and indeed the bus stop so close by where there are plenty of buses passing. We particularly like St Marychurch which is just a 10-15 minute walk, plenty of good local shops and cafes, would recommend the Memories Bistro in the precinct, only open Fridays and Saturdays and you do have to book a good way in advance but the food is amazing. Also loved being so close to Hanburys for their excellent fish and chips and great to be so close and not need to take the car as we have always had to do on previous visits. Correspondence with Tessa the owner excellent and I'm sure if we'd had any problems they would have been resolved swiftly but of course everything was spot on. I hope we will be able to return at some time later this year if even just for a short break.
