  • We were a group of nine and found the house was fine

    We were a group of nine and found the house was fine. Living area was adequate. Ideally it would have a second toilet and shower for a group our size but we managed OK. Handy to town. Would happily stay there again.

    We loved this property - old(er) and a bit quirky but that was part of the charm - very comfortable and relaxing to be in. Brilliant location right next to town and to the beach. Will recommend it.

  • Just 2 annoying things

    Just 2 annoying things. Needs a light over dining table. Toaster took 3 goes to get decent toast.

    Owner/manager responds:

    Pleased you had a great stay. Regarding the light - there was an adjustable directional lamp there for you to use. The toaster is brand new and has various settings for you to choose. You must have had it on a lower setting. Maybe you didn't see the buttons on the side of it? Thanks for staying.

  • location excellent, close to beach, shops restaurants

    location excellent, close to beach, shops restaurants. Cottage was as described, but a bit old and cluttered for us.

    When you looked at all the pictures and read this in the description on the listing "If you don't like old houses, this is not the place for you. It has it's quirks but it is clean and has been freshly decorated. Don't expect a modern house.", why did you go ahead and book? Seems odd to me. I even emailed you to ask if you had read the full description and explained that it is nearly 100yrs. Our other guests love the decor & style. Maybe you're better suited to motels.
