We had a great time on our holiday Nuthatch cottage was beautifully presented and perfect for our needs. Anna was the perfect host who had thought of everything required in the cottage. She was always available if we needed her. Even though there were other cottages next to us it always felt private. A great bonus was the large field next to us thaRead moret was part of the farm, we could let the dogs of the lead to run about in safety. We would definitely come back again and highly recommend it Hide

This is a lovely cottage, spotlessly clean, beautifully furnished and well equipped. It has a lovely sun deck and a private garden that looks out over fields. Wonderfully quiet surroundings - with only the birds and the odd tractor to disturb the silence. Anna is an extremely good host. Highly recommended to anyone who wants a quiet relaxing break Read more- with or without dogs. Our two Jack Russells loved it - and there are plenty of good beach and cliff walks to be had in the surrounding area. Hide

A musty smell lingered for a couple of days from arrival - purchased some scented candles to take away the smell. Outdoor area was bare with very basic furniture. No homely feel, partly due to removal of soft furnishings for reasons of Covid, partly due to lack of decoration. Very dark kitchen diner made meals out more attractive. Adequate.
