We have just returned from a week in Bassets Acre( week of 21st June), this yet again has enabled us to re-set the "stress-o-meters". We stayed in "Squirrels View". The apartment was great, spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The welcome from Pam and Rich(who are really tremendous hosts) was as welcoming today as it was 23 years ago. We cannot... More

Don't be fooled by the claim that the pool is heated and will be warm. It may be heated but in May the pool was freezing. Luckily, the hot tub was fabulous. The Anchorage room was fine. Bunk beds in 1 room and a nice comfy 4-poster bed in the other. Pam and Richard were fabulous hosts. The kids liked... More

GOOD is not good enough for us we aim for GREAT, We put our heart and soul into what we do, Thats why so many people come back year after year, The pool costs a fortune to heat and with the help of the air dome cover never falls below 74deg even in May and usually runs at 85 deg... More

I really wanted to like Bassets Acre. It is pretty pricey - we paid just under £1000 for a week in August, so we had high expectations, but unfortunately they weren't met. The biggest complaint is that there is no wi-fi at all in the apartment - even though Bassets Acre (and Tripadvisor) advertise the accommodation as having wi-fi. I... More

This is one of those finds where you find that those seemingly insurmountable challenges that plague our everyday lives become insignificant. The sea air and the peaceful haven have made this a real treasure. The owners were particularly friendly and welcoming and I was able to relax ...and have peace from my normal busy life with 2 very young children... More

We stayed in Garden Spring and had a lovely time. The apartment was very clean and spacious and had everything we needed. Cleaning materials and binbags were provided, as were certain staples, such as salt. Small things like that do make a difference. The apartment had everything we needed. There is no dishwasher, but we ate out more often than... More
