Loved it.

  • 4 of 5

We recently stayed at the cottage and have stayed there before. We love the location of the cottage as well as being able to take our dog. There were a couple of very minor issues this stay but the owner (Jet) was quick to get them sorted, very much appreciated thank you. We look forward to our next stay.

Fantastic place

  • 5 of 5

This is the best stocked holiday house I've stayed in - they've thought of everything! It was very comfortable and despite the miserable weather for the majority of our stay, we had a wonderful time. The location is perfect - so close to the beach and the excellent kids' playground, with easy access to shops. The house is a lovely size (so we didn't feel cramped) and the kitchen has plenty of room to work in. The sunroom out the back meant that even during the rainy days we could still get some fresh air. The garden is a great size and our puppy had a blast. My 5-year-old daughter loved her first ever sleep in a top bunk. Thank you Jet! We would love to come back.

NOTE: We actually stayed in January 2016 but the Stayz website hasn't been updated with that year yet, so I've selected December 2015.
