    "Description should declare that there a campsite within the owners grounds & access is directly past the front of the bungalow. Also toilet for campsite is attached to the bungalow. The chemical waste & dustbins is directly opposite the kitchen window."
    Paula – 27 Sep 2019
    "Nice cottage, clean and warm, however was disappointed with that it was located on a drive leading to a caravan site on the property, the gate in and out is right by kitchen window, and the toilet block for the site is attached to the cottage, producing some noise issues day and night."
    Confirmed guest – 21 Sep 2019
    "A lovely cottage, very friendly hosts cottage was clean and well equipped.A very dog friendly cottage with nice enclosed garden."
    David – 20 Sep 2019
    "The bungalow was pleasant and comfortable. We would have preferred the hot water not to have been reliant on an immersion heater. The bathroom needed a brighter bulb in the ceiling light and lighting fitted above the mirror. It was chilly in the bathroom first thing in the morning because the towel rail was never on. There was a constant loud ticking from a timer in one of the kitchen cupboards. The dog blanket should have been in a basket and not on the leather suite. Even so, it was worthy of a nine.On arrival, we were upset to find that the owners also run a caravan and camper van site and dog training classes in their grounds. If this had been mentioned in either the property details or reviews, we would have not booked. Even worse, was the lack of privacy. Opposite the kitchen sink window is a screened area for waste disposal and chemical toilet emptying. Attached to the bathroom is a toilet for the campers, which could be heard in the bathroom and bedroom, when flushed. It was not unusual for someone to be standing by the bathroom window, whilst holding a gate open."

    "Ideally placed for days out to beach & gardens."
    Anne – 19 Jun 2019

    Bryan – 21 May 2019
