It is also just a short trip on foot or by the nearby passenger ferry to the stunning sandy beaches of North and South Sands, Smalls Cove, Mill Bay and Sunny Cove. In the evenings you can enjoy an al fresco meal and glass of wine on the private patio overlooking the estuary, or go crabbing over the wall of the public walkway at the front of the cottages.

We arrived early and the cottage had been left in a state by the previous occupiers (should be some recourse when people do that ?) The ladies from Pebbles were really up against it to have the cottage clean and tidy by 4 pm - we felt very sorry for them However they did an excellent job (we don't know their names but the older lady came from Whitby and the young girl from Torquay) and we would like to commend them to Pebbles and know they have been told! We left the cottage in immaculate form (we are very tidy people) Toad Hall have been very good throughout and I would commend you highly
Although there was a welcome pack of scones and jam, which was very nice, there wasn't any cleaning products except floor cleaner, no dishcloth, no washing up liquid. Also no bin bag in the kitchen (although it said in the information booklet there was some in the cupboard, there wasn't any anywhere). We had to buy some! Also no toilet roll (although I always take some with me) I haven't stayed anywhere where there's not even been part of a roll and only one hand towel in the main bathroom between four people! I was quite disappointed have always been pleased at other properties of yours.
Many thanks for your very useful feedback. We are sorry that the property did not have sufficient cleaning equipment or hand towels. These should of course have been provided and we will look into why they were not. We always ask that guests call us if there are any issues at all with the property. In this case we could have called the cleaning company who could have put the issues right immediately.
