A very relaxing and fun stay. It was a shame the local pub was dirty so we had to drive out for evening meals or cook at the house. We always take out shoes off in the house (as we do at home) which was how we found out about the stuck up nails.
Glad you had an enjoyable stay and very sorry about the nails. We are calling around there immediately to remove them.

It is a fabulous house in a beautiful location.
This was our third holiday at Langerstone. It's a fabulous property - spacious and very comfortable - with marvellous views. We hope to return.
Absolutely marvellous property - could not fault
Langerstone is an exceptional property. Location and facilities are outstanding. The quality of everything about this place is absolutely superb and it has everything you could possibly need. The owners and caretaker are so considerate and welcoming and have thought of everything. We had an amazing stay. Thank you.
Langerstone is a superb property. It's spacious, beautifully furnished and has a calm and bright atmosphere. The heated pool is just fabulous and the view is glorious. This was our second visit there and we were lucky enough to enjoy good weather on both occasions. Part of the reason for choosing it this year was that, had the weather been bad, being in such a lovely house with the indoor pool, the table tennis and plenty of books would have saved the day. Having such a nice pub nearby is a real bonus. The owners of Langerstone provide everything you need - the fact that it's someone's much loved home rather than an impersonal holiday let is very apparent. The only negative comment we can think of is that it's so hard to leave!
This holiday home is delightful in every way. The sea views really helped to relax us and make us feel that we had really got away from the worries of everyday life.
We have enjoyed three holidays as a family with Toad Hall Cottages. The staff are extremely helpful and friendly, the cottage wonderful and we would highly recommend Toad Hall Cottages.
Everything about this property is 5 star. The views, the furnishing, the maintenance, and the attention to detail. We were a party of 3 generations who made lots of use of the pool, the table tennis and the proximity to the beach. The weather was chilly so we loved the log burner and the Aga. Thank you to the caretaker and the owners for the opportunity to experience such luxury!
