We went as a family holiday to celebrate my mother's 90th birthday. The cottage was all we had hoped for. The bedrooms were large and the layout of the cottage suited us just fine. The kitchen is spacious and the gardens were lovely. The separate dining room was excellent for eight people. There is a bbq which we used on a number of occasions and we went to the Tradesman's Arms for the evening meal on the special day. The Church House Inn was also very good although we didn't eat there. There is plenty of garden furniture.
We stayed for a week (2adults, 3 kids and grandparents for part of the week) at Island House and would definitely recommend it. The cottage is spacious, comfortable and had everything we needed for our family holiday. The location is perfect for exploring the area. Great coastal walks, beautiful beaches, friendly pubs and delicious food are all on your doorstep. We were reluctant to leave and would love to come back.
Lovely cottage very spacious everything there we needed for 8 guests. Village green opposite great for bird watching. Set in a buitiful area local pub served great food.
We stayed here during the winter months due to work commitments in the nearby area. We could not have wished for a better house to stay in. It was perfect!
The house itself is to a very high standard and has a lovely homely feel. Four large bedrooms and an upstairs toilet on the first floor, and a bathroom, living room and kitchen/dining room. The kitchen was great with a very good cooker/oven. All kitchen utilities (pots/pans etc) were there which was handy.
The only slight issue (if that!) was the TV signal wasn't great and very intermittent but that is the general case for rural areas. But the wifi was good.
During the winter months, we used the heating which was very efficient and kept the cottage warm and comfortable despite the cold outside. Despite the longer nights of winter - the views across the valley from the upstairs rooms were beautiful.
The house had enough parking space for about 2/3 cars which was great whilst we worked in the area. The house was located about 4 doors from the pub "The Tradesman" which did very good food (I would recommend the steak and ale pie!) and a little further on was another pub, "The Church House".
Clive, the owner, was brilliant and extremely accommodating for our needs and any queries whilst we were letting for a longer period.
I would most definitely recommend the house to anyone looking to stay in the area. It felt like a home away from home.
We spent a fabulous week at Island House (2 adults, 6 teenagers). The house was extremely spacious and easily fit all eight of us. Brilliant views out of the front of the house and perfect location with a wonderful pub to eat at a few doors down.

Everything was super about this gorgeous cottage. Spotlessly clean, equipped with everything we might need, and perfectly situated for access to the village, beach and exploring lots of beautiful places. Great that we could park right outside too. We had one query while we were there, which was dealt with immediately with no bother to us. I was sorry to leave at the end of the week and hope to stay there again.
Lovely cottage! Very spacious with lots of home comforts and a view over the village green. Comfortable beds, clean new decor, and well equipped kitchen. Wish we could have stayed longer. The village has a couple of nice pubs and the beach at Torcross is a short walk away down a pretty footpath. There's a great farm shop very nearby too!
The owner is really helpful and friendly and recommended us lots to do in the area and the house comes with a useful handbook with all the info you could need. We stayed with our baby and the house even has a highchair which is very handy.
