Guestbook comments from the owner

'A wonderful long weekend at Gorse Hill Cottage. Perfect position; overlooking the beach and town, with marvellous views out to sea. Enjoyable coastal walks start at the end of the garden. We found the cottage to be clean, and well presented, complete with a much appreciated welcome. Recommended!

Fantastic cottage, just a walk through the garden to the beach

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was in the perfect location, just a walk through the garden to Pendine beach. We had s fantastic family holiday even though the weather was atrocious at times. I think the cottage us enabled to do that as we could still pop down to the beach to enjoy the surf when it was raining and nip down to fly kites, do sand castles and enjoy all the rock pools when it stopped!

The cottage itself has everything you need and has been thoughtfully done. The views are amazing. It is right next to a coastal footpath and near other amazing beaches. We hope to return. Thank you.

3 generations

  • 4 of 5

Gorse Hill was perfect for our long weekend with 3 generations of our family. The views were spectacular and kept all of us entertained. A short walk down through the garden brought us to the beach, pub and shops.

One rainy day took us to the swimming pool at Blue Stone which kept the younger ones happy.

The cottage is well equipped and well stocked, we were welcomed with a bottle of wine which was much appreciated .

All of us said we would recommend Gorse Hill and be happy to book again.
