On arrival, there was the basic supplies, including a lovely bottle of chilled rose wine,not to mention milk and coffee which we were in desperate need of after a long day of travelling!

We spent a very relaxing 5 nights at The Summer House; Tina, the owner, was very thoughtful and there were basic supplies (bread/butter/milk/eggs/tea/coffee) already there as well as a lovely chilled bottle of wine. We hit the jackpot with the weather and enjoyed BBQs on the decking in the evenings and wallowed in the hot tub once it got a... More

Couldn't recommend The Summerhouse enough, we stayed here for a week and come away totally relaxed. We looked forward to coming back to it every night. Tina is absolutely lovely and couldn't make you feel more welcome, she provides little touches that make such a difference. The location is perfect, quiet and cosy with excellent views. The hot tub at... More

We spent a few nights at Ivar cottage in late July, What a beautiful place! Lots of old world charm but with all the mod-cons. The location is excellent, handy to the beach and walks to the cliffs and downs. We found the accommodation to be very clean and comfortable and the hosts extremely welcoming and friendly. Thanks a lot... More

We came here for our honeymoon and it was absolutely beautiful! It was so relaxing to sit in the hot tub while the BBQ cooked in the evening. Everything in the house was so wonderfully put together and give a kind of oriental feel to the place. All the little things were thought of such as milk and bread, we... More

Really recommend this B and B if you want privacy and comfort in a great location. It's basically a log cabin in the owner's garden, with its own mini kitchen, shower room and lounge area with huge tv and squishy leather sofas. We loved it! We had a lovely easy walk to the Wonky Cafe on the beach for a... More

Tina made us very welcome from the moment we arrived. We were shown to the log cabin at the end of the garden. Wow! What a surprise! Very tasteful styling, clean,... More
