We booked this cottage to celebrate a family birthday. At first we were all really pleased and impressed with the cottage. On arrival it was spotlessly clean, warm and the welcome pack was a pleasant surprise. We were pleased to find everything we needed. The wifi is super fast and the extra fridge in the utility room was really useful for the party food and drink.
The rooms worked well for our party and we were all initially pleased with our rooms. I had booked the cottage so I got the main double room with ensuite. The shower was excellent and I had no issues. Unfortunately as the days progressed it became apparent the the rest of my family weren't as comfortable. The showers in the annexe and family bathrooms were difficult to use and not powerful enough. After the second night we were all sharing the power showers in the ensuite bathrooms. Then I found out that the bunk room was always cold and that there was no hot water in the family bathroom. This was disappointing to hear because I'd booked the cottage and felt responsible.
The games room turned out to be a shed in the garden that was doubling up as storage for the summer furniture. It wasn't very welcoming with deck chairs stacked up against the wall and bean bags filling up the floor space.
We were surprised to find cannabis posters and a bong in the games room and an adult themed game in the sitting room. Our children were too young to understand and we made light of it but started to question whether we were in a 'family' rental after all
I brought my dog and as instructed I went round the garden to clean up all my dogs mess. I was upset to find that the garden was littered with dog mess in various sizes and stages of decay. It was apparent that precious guests had not followed the instructions and even worse that no one was inspecting and ensuring it was clean in between rentals.
Overall this is a great cottage in a great location but let down by minor details
A lovely cottage for a large group, very comfortable and clean. The garden is great. The views are fantastic.
The beach is just a 5 minute walk away and there's plenty to visit nearby.
The welcome pack was a nice touch and the box of beach towels was so very handy.
In the end we just wished we'd stayed longer!
