A very clean and comfortable cottage with a very comfy bed. The dogs enjoyed the garden. A basket of goodies and an Alexa. The village of Eype is built on a hillside so you must be able to manage slopes.

Great location. Pub close by which serves good pub grub. I picked this cottage for its closeness to the beach and because it was dog friendly.

This delightful cottage in a wonderful location, 10 mins walk to the beach, was perfect for my husband, me and our dog. The beach is dog friendly all year round as is the New Inn pub (2 mins walk).

Not suitable for anyone who struggles with stairs or hills. But the place was really nice and the walks amazing. Although we were disappointed in the beach as we were told gravel and sand beach and it was large pebbles!!! Please update the descriptions online.

It is a lovely, well equipped little cottage. It is a real home from home. The welcome package of bread, eggs, butter, milk, jam and small bottle of wine is a nice touch and very useful. It is small cottage and would not suit anyone with mobility difficulties. There are numerous walks direct from the cottage but it is a very hilly and in some placeRead mores very steep part of the world and a certain level of fitness is required to avail yourself of the walks. I have no hesitation in recommending it. Hide
