CANDID COMMENTS

The shower room is on the ground floor with the family bathroom upstairs. The bath has a hand held shower. The large shared garden, exclusively for Nook End, Driftwood and Seasalt is located across the service drive from the cottages, so not ideal for unsupervised toddlers. Vehicles do use the road so please be careful. Ideal for older children who'd like some independence. Each cottage does have its own private enclosed garden though, just off the living room, which is lovely for younger children.

TO NOTE

Whilst we take great care to represent our properties and their facilities as accurately as possible, the décor, furnishings and facilities shown in images and video tours may occasionally be subject to minor change.

It is suitable for children of all ages and includes toys and games, a private garden, outdoor play equipment and a communal play area. There is also a children's bedroom and a small dedicated reading and drawing nook in the hallway ideal for little ones.

Reviews

So welcoming especially after such a long freezing journey in snow and rain. The fire was ready to light, the fairy lights on, the heating on full and a welcoming light in the hallway. We were welcomed by a lovely little goodie bag of treats and immediately opened the wine and felt at home. Our holiday had begun well.

Past Customer,

We expected to be further away from the sea than we were. We could even see the sea. It was fabulous. We will be booking this cottage again and bringing friends to stay in the two cottages next door. We had a quick peek at Driftwood on our departure and it looked just as gorgeous as Seasalt.

Past Customer,

We stayed with you twice before, but Seasalt was particularly good. Really well equipped and very family friendly. Felt very much like we were guests in another family's house - but in a good way.

Past Customer,
