We had a wonderful stay at jays cottage. The estate is stunning and there was plenty to keep the whole family entertained. The cottage was cosy and had everything you could need to enjoy your stay. Thoroughly recommended.

August 2013

We had a lovely time at Jays Cottage. If anything the photos on the website didn't do justice to this little gem! The cottage was very charming, with lovely touches, making it feel like a home from home straight away. The pools were fantastic, and well used by me and my two children. The grounds were beautiful and we had a peaceful stay, but were never at a loss for things to do in the grounds or fairly locally. Nearby Bigbury beach was a great place for children. We would thoroughly recommend a stay here.
