Perfect for a winter family get away.

  • 5 of 5

Blue Oars was the perfect winter get away for the four of us and the two fur kids! The house has everything you need - cosy lounge, comfortable beds, fully kited out kitchen and a secure yard for the dogs. Joy was a pleasure to deal with and was kind enough to provide suggested activities before we arrived. Easy access to the beach for a lovely walk to Somers. The dogs were not allowed off lead due to nesting birds, but that was the only downside for us. We'll be back.

Home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

Exactly what we were hoping for! Lovely home with everything you could ask for (we weren't brave enough for the outside shower :P). Daily walks on the beach, trips to winery's/breweries/distilleries, and at night reading in front of a toasty fire. Rested and recharged for the winter ahead!

Such a delightfully quiet sojourn, a perfect place too paint and create masterpieces

  • 5 of 5

What a find... everything one could possibly need was where it should be. Well equipped cottage, comfortable bed, clean linen, washing machine, air conditioning (not that I needed it, nor did I need the closed log fire) Close to the beach with lovely walks. Shop down the road or shopping 5” by car.

A sanctuary to relax and paint under the grape vine in the company of the local feathered community.

I’m reluctant to share this as I want it all to my self.

A credit to you Joy & Peter.

Thankyou and Bless 🙏?
