I was here with a female friend, both of us from England. We arrived here late and it was like returning home! The house is a perfect family home. The room was cosy and clean with lovely pillows and an amazing bed. It was nice having tea and coffee in the room too. We both slept brilliantly here. The bathroom... More

Then we looked for alternatives, some nice but overpriced B&Bs were available,but we didn´t really like them. Finally we found the the ***star Cliff Cottage, a lovely place,... More

Staying here is like coming home to your mother's house. Its cozy, breakfast is hearty and the hosts are fantastic people. Although not luxurious it has everything you need. We stayed in the Garden cottage and loved the shower. The only thing I would like to ask for is for darker curtains, as I find it hard to sleep with... More

What a lovely place Cliff Cottage is and so professionally and caringly run by Chuck and Dot. They have thought of everything. My room at the back of the garden was so quiet and spotlessly clean. The bathroom has been recently updated and has a wonderful big shower cubicle. The bedding is clearly replaced regularly with new and everything was... More

We stumbled upon Cliff Cottage after knocking on several other BnB doors looking for the perfect combination of ambiance and price, and we couldn't believe our luck. Dot & Chucks place was as charming as they are hospitable, tucked away from but well-within walking distance of the town center, just across the street from the cliffs overlooking the sea. Our...

We recently made a repeat visit to Cliff Cottage where Dot and Chuck maintained the high standards of the previous one. We had a problem with our hire car and Dot swiftly and efficiently arranged a replacement car for us as we had difficulty contacting the company using a British mobile. An added feature from last time is the provision... More

This was my second visit to Cliff Cottage and like the time before, Dot and Chuck were the best hosts ever. The rooms were spotless and spacious. The location is perfect. You can practically touch the cliffs. I can't recommend this place enough, not only for the hospitality of Dot and Chuck, but for the lovely atmosphere and great location!!
