We enjoyed a wonderfully relaxing short break at Groves Cottage for my husband's birthday. This was our first visit to the White Cliffs area - fantastic for walking as there are footpaths everywhere, not just along the famous cliffs, but beside quiet country roads, across fields, through beautiful woodland and nature reserves rich with birdsong. The 'Steps to Beach' from...

Spent 3 nights in Cottage with family for son's wedding. It was clean, well appointed, beautifully decorated and presented. The owner met us which was a nice gesture. Each bedroom had its own en suite. What more could you want? It is also in a delightful village and area close to the sea. I would love to go again.

Thank you for taking the time to review our cottage. We are so pleased that you enjoyed staying in the village and had a lovely weekend. We would be pleased to welcome you again in the future.
