The kitchen was well supplied with utensils and cooking equipment; the bathroom and shower room were also nicely stocked. Everything was clean. The cottage was beautifully quiet and the gardens were pleasant to explore. We felt welcomed without being overwhelmed. It was a very pleasant home to come back to at the end of the day.

The chalet was well equipped and very clean. The children felt cosy and safe and enjoyed exploring the area. The location was super to enjoy the end of Autumn sea before the Winter set in. We thoroughly enjoyed our surfing and the proximity to the sea was perfect, not to mention the lovely glimpses of the sea you would achieve through the chalet windows. A really beautiful contrast to our moorland home. The sound of the sea at night was wonderfully lulling for us all. To summarise, a super little chalet, wonderful owner and perfect location for beach and exploration of a great area! Thank you. The Kerswells - October 2017
