“Great base for a family group”
Reviewed June 5, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Sue could not have been more helpful from initial enquiry through to our departure at the end of our stay. The cottage is very well equipped and was the perfect base for our stay for our son's wedding weekend. Plenty of space for four couples to share.

“Excellent value short stay break”

person found this review helpful

Sue and Dave make excellent hosts, they are friendly and helpful but also let you have your own space. We had a couple of very enjoyable long weekends, the facilities were comprehensive and it was a very comfortable house for a winter break. The weather was beautiful and mild during our time at Kittiwake, the house was bathed in lovely winter sunshine. We would also recommend getting a crab or two from Dave, they couldn't be fresher and are of excellent quality.

Thank you. We are always happy to brings home lobster and crab fresh from the sea, as long as the weather lets Dave go out in the boat. We can also show how to cook and pick out a crab.

“Refreshing break”
Reviewed December 4, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

Stayed at property for a long weekend away with some girlfriends. The owner made extremely welcome. The jacuzzi bath was a godsend after a 9 mile dog walk! We enjoyed being close to the beach and the food was well worth a visit at Hope Cove Beach cafe.

“Little heaven”
Reviewed March 28, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We stayed at Kittiwake for 5 days. The accommodation is second to none. Great value. Ideal for families too - lots of extras for children, they would love it. Spotlessly clean. Sue and David are very friendly and accommodating. Kittiwake has everything you could possibly want and need and more besides. Simon is looking forward to his next visit in September and Im sure I will be following again sometime soon too.
Thank you again for making our stay 'heaven' and relaxing.

“peaceful and relaxing”
Reviewed March 7, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

I stayed at Kittiwake for two nights whilst doing Sue's withy pot course and wished I could have stayed for longer. The accommodation was spotlessly clean, good quality fixtures and furnishing and very relaxing and homely.
Kittiwake is in a fantastic location just a short stroll from picturesque thatched cottages and a lovely beach,
Sue and Dave the owners are so kind and welcoming and full of lots of interesting local knowledge and history.
The accommodation at Kittiwake is very flexible and would be ideal for a large family group, i home to return for a longer stay with my family.
If you get the chance try one of Dave's delicious freshly caught crabs.

“Very comfortable and great hosts”
Reviewed February 6, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Only stayed 1 night as I was taking Sue's pot making course, brought wife to navigate the country lanes.
Wish we had stayed longer as the house and owners are very friendly, easy going and provide an education and introduction to the colourful heritage of this area.
The flexibility offered by the layout of the house is brilliant, the location is worth the effort of driving the South Devon lanes safely, glad I did not tow our caravan down for the night though.
Will return to explore the area as had not been around this region for a couple of decades.
Plenty to offer using Kittiwake as a base, do your research, ask questions, enjoy.
