Short stay! Lovely Sea View
Need an 'Old Salty's' sign on the property and allocated parking space, as it was difficult to locate. Parking and turning around was tricky with a larger vehicle.
Property was well equipped, however it was in amore elevated position than expected, and quite some walking distance from the beach.
Overall view, the property would benefit from 'freshening up' : master bedroom paint peeling around window, new roller blinds, new carpets, new sink / drainer, however it was lovely to wake up to a sea view from the master bedroom.
Little bit of heaven
Needed to get away for Xmas as was going to be home alone.....superb setting at Old Salty's Cottage. Very welcoming arrival with Xmas tree , lights and lovely food hamper. Will definitely go again , perhaps in spring. Thankyou to all who made our stay so comfortable and restful.
Great view over Westward Ho! Bay
Great communication meant that the whole stay was easy to organise. The property is well furnished, warm and comfortable. The outside space was enclosed which meant we could let the dog have a wander around safely. Would definitely recommend it to friends.
Closeness to sea
Could not fault the property. Attention to detail was spot on. The photograph on line of the property appeared to be a lot closer to the beach than it actually was. We found it difficult to walk up the hill from the beach so had to take the car every day. But that said it was an enjoyable stay and will return.
Would definitely stay again
