“"Superbly decorated, spacious, modern holiday beach home"”

We arrived at Southern Bell after a long week at work (6 of us) and as soon as we stepped into the hallway, our stress evaporated into the sea air! You are instantly bowled over by the unique and simply stunning décor of this place. It's quirky and modern, yet still has that 'home from home' vibe about it too.

We cooked on the first evening and found that the kitchen was well equipped with all the necessary cooking utensils. The open plan kitchen/diner/lounge layout is perfect in order to keep the group "together". Everyone had a really good night's sleep - all the beds are comfortable and the showers are powerful and hot. We also made use of the deck chairs provided and played some music in the evening sun - pure bliss!

The beach is literally on your doorstep and some of us even braved a dip in the sea! We also enjoyed a lovely walk along the beach which led us to some fabulous food at the "Inn on the beach" and a yummy ice-cream from "Paparelli's".

It was by far, one of the best weekends away we've had. Thank you Clive and Jo - Southern Bell is simply stunning. We'll be visiting again for sure!

A wonderful holiday for the extended family and the dogs! The house is unique with its iconic 1920,s railway carriages at its centre. Decoration and furnishings are beautiful and it has everything you could possibly want to make a truly memorable holiday. The beach is literally in your back garden - perfect for dogs,children or indeed anyone. I can't thank the owners enough for being so helpful and accommodating. Overall an amazing house and an amazing holiday. Thank you.
