We had a lovely holiday, perfect place for the grandchildren.

  • 4 of 5

The property was well equipped and very clean. In a perfect location and secure for the grandchildren to play with the wee playpark. Convenient to the beach and a well stocked shop on site. A few wee improvements I feel could improve the property. The TVs are very dated and more like a portable tv. The tv in the sunroom doesn’t actually work which would have been handy for the kiddies while we cooked in the kitchen.I understand you don’t go on holiday to watch tv but I feel they are outdated. The CD player didn’t work. Only one shower and one one bath. 6 adults using one shower wasn’t ideal. Also a very small garden table with 4 chairs tho the property sleeps 8. Overall we had a brilliant holiday and the kids really enjoyed it. Portsalon is a lovely place with a beautiful beach.

Great self catering for large group/family get together

  • 4 of 5

Spent the bank holiday weekend with all the family (16 + baby) fantastic facilities with everything included and thought off in terms of the facilities. Even a gas BBQ ! Each house sleeps 8 comfortably with a camp bed for another person (9) and a travel cot. Secure with electric gates, so ideal for small kids to play and run around safely. Highly recommend it. Only down side is 1km away from the beach, which is a short walk but with small kids, not ideal. ( busy enough road) But not the end of the world to drive down. Fabulous safe beach ... kids and adults had a ball !

Perfect for us as we are golfers, and the property is 10 minutes walk to the golf course and the beach.

Very spacious.

Just need to remember to put the immersion heater on.

very good

  • 4 of 5

Very spacious. There was 9 of us in 1 house and we never once felt cramped. The grounds the properties are on is fantastic loads of room for the kids to run about and never had to worry because of the electric gates. The house is brilliant but the only thing i would say would be the sofas in the conservatory could do with updating aswell as the play park but it wouldnt put us of going back again. The view from the house was amazing and so close to the beach. Overall a brilliant holiday :-)

These cottages were fantastic, great location and surroundings, the children loved the play park which is on the grounds also, so they were safe within the complex. Our party was 17 adults and 14 children and there was more than enough room for all of us, within the house and on the grounds also. Would definitely stay here again!!!! Brilliant weekend, with family :-)

Beautiful Cottages in a Stunning Location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in one of the beautiful cottages over Easter. The houses are of a superior standard, offering loads of space for large families. We loved the way the houses are designed, large open kitchen leading into a bright sunroom. The perfect setup for the adults to enjoy a meal in peace while the children happily watched a movie! The whole house is beautifully decorated & offers you everything you need for a perfect stay.

The children’s play area just outside your door is heaven for the kids, keeping them entertained for hours in such a safe setting. The cottages are perfect for large family gatherings or for a relaxing weekend away.

The location of the cottages is second to none with literally everything on your doorstep. We were lucky enough to enjoy fantastic weather, days spent on the beach & Lazy afternoons down by the pier. All within a few minutes stroll from the Cottages. We will definitely be back!!"
