“Amazing retreat!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We have just returned from a week away at Stormy Castle. 13 of us went away to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary and the only words to describe the whole experience is 'absolute perfection'. The location is perfect as the house is set upon a hill and overlooks the sea. The grounds are immaculate and many an early evening was spent playing lawn bowls, cricket etc. The house is very well looked after and there was enough space for us all to feel we weren't living on top of each other.

We are at the Kings arms and,for our anniversary meal, Fairyhill. This hotel was amazing and well worth a visit as a special treat.

The weather was absolutely superb. We were very lucky. I'd reccomend surf lessons from
WSF and taking body boards as the water was really warm.

I have no negatives about this holiday. It was the best family break I have been on.

“Fantastic family house”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

person found this review helpful

Fantastic family house with just about everything you could want. Very well equipped. Kids loved it as it seemed to go on for ever and just so much to explore.
But the view over the sea is just out of this world, and to see the sun set each evening was just wonderful.
What was so nice is that 10 minutes away from the beach down a path by the house. Also many other walks near by.

Lastly a little word of thanks to Helen who put up with more than one odd question as a bunch of Belgians tried to organise the holiday via an intermediary in the UK. So patient.

All in all fantastic. Many thanks

“Stormy Castle STORMS to the top of our favourites list!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We picked Stormy Castle on the recommendation of a friend and it couldn't have been more perfect. We are a mixed group of nine, with a baby making us 9 1/2! We all go away together twice a year, so we have a lot of experience of this type of property. The house itself was clean, very well equipped and laid out and had a lovely homely atmosphere. Plenty of space for people to get together as a group, or to chill out alone or in smaller groups. We booked the annexe too due to the size of our group, and that was of an equally high standard. The booking procedure was very straightforward, and the owners/caretaker were amazingly helpful and supportive in making sure we had everything we need. We even had a problem with the boiler in the annexe and the caretaker was out to sort within the hour! The location is beautiful, and we all agreed that the house and setting were so lovely that it didn't need to be the kind of weekend where you have to plan wall-to-wall activities - just let Stormy Castle cast its spell over you and enjoy every minute!
