Stayed here last week and we were blessed with a fantastic four full days of hot hot hot sun! The location of this house is unrivaled virtually anywhere in the UK I would suggest, it is truly breathtaking. It almost sits on the beach. And what a beach! I admit we were blessed weather wise, but the seclusion, privacy and beauty of the beach will be very hard to beat. It felt almost like a private beach, even in the sun and during half term, with just a handful of people. Absolutely spoiling. Unbeatable if you love off the beaten track tranquility and seclusion. But secluded and stunningly beautiful too. The pictures and the website don't do this justice. You simply have to visit to see what I mean.
Likewise Carla and John are superb hosts, welcoming, friendly, funny, generous, interesting, all accommodating, nothing seems too much trouble. Yet though you share the house with them, as their home, they are intrusive, there when you need them to be, not over your shoulder when you don't. A tough balance that I felt was just right, an example to all. Couldn't have asked for better.
We stayed in the Ocean Breeze Room, which is really lovely with a very big bath room its fabulous. . No expense spared, a real touch of luxury. The Ocean Breeze is simply a joy the views over the sea from your bed, its an absolute pleasure to see. The room is spacious but the sound of the sea, sense of space, air and light literally on your doorstep I simply loved it!!
Breakfast was on the terrace in the sun, a lovely touch, and the food was beautifully presented and always seemed lovingly prepared. There was a very personal touch here.
We visited the nearby, Halzephron Inn (also a Sawdays entry), Food here was nice, the atmosphere inviting, and the sunset a dream. (Though not inexpensive).
Overall this place is exquisite. The hosts are a joy to meet. I couldn't fault it for us, it was everything I'd hoped for and then some. I would absolutely totally recommend it to anyone, who loves tranquility, privacy a touch of luxury and fun! I will without doubt look forward to another visit. An absolute gem of a place and a stay. Extraordinarily romantic, with a touch of class and a definite sprinkling of luxury. Unbeatable value for money.
