Small stable-type block of modern construction. This is the end one. It is designed for disabled people - bathroom shower has seat and handrail for loo. The beds are woefully springy and uncomfortable - slept well first night because very tired after 5 hour journey. Rest of the week was very hit and miss.

Not the standard of cottage we have previously enjoyed through holidaycottages.com. The beds were particularly uncomfortable, and at the price we were paying we did not expect to have to strip the beds at the end of our holiday. Minimum cutlery and crockery, not sufficient to warrant using the dishwasher and the one dishwasher tablet supplied. No TRead moreV in master bedroom as advertised. A welcome pack, or at least a pint of milk, would have been appreciated. Hide

A lovely adapted cottage made very comfortable. lots of character. The outside seating area is a bit exposed to the neighbours as wall to low which made us feel a bit uncomfortable to sit outside but there is a little private walled courtyard outside one of the bedrooms so we moved the table & chairs to this part and enjoyed the privacy. There is dRead moreisabled access into this cottage but we found the step by the gate difficult with the wheelchair. Hide

A great purpose built gated site, well equipped with good quality furniture, curtains , cutlery and crockery. Bed linen and fluffy white towels excellent. Access cottage has plenty of space and full facilities. Main pool times of 10-1pm somewhat limiting. Leisure centre at extra charge vet good.

Take dishwasher tablets and waste bin liners as you only get one of each.

Excellent location and a good basic property with some disabled facilities. Ramp into house useful although there is a small step up into patio area leading to the ramp. Plenty of good parking.

Lovely spaced out cottage on one level which provided ample room for a family of 4. The utility room was a bonus and 3 loos were useful. Excellent location with all amenities within walking distance including pub, local food store, local town playing fields/park as well as the beach.
