First impressions weren't good by the state and age of the front door plus on entry the property was cold. General cleanliness was disappointing and wasn't up to the general standard which we would have expected in a holiday rental e.g paintwork around doors and balustrades were grimy, cooker hood was greasy and grimy and light bulb blown, kitchen light bulb shades were also greasy, double oven wasn't clean and seal was falling off in places, dog odour apparent, dog nose prints all over french windows/doors - I am aware it was a dog friendly property but these could have been cleaned off. The property was let down by the following: missing light bulbs, blown light bulbs, missing curtain hooks, fixtures and fittings were loose in bathroom downstairs, windows were misty and un-openable as per a sticker on one. There was no particular order in the kitchen cupboards with cooking and serving crockery. General decor in the lounge was very good and bedrooms was nice but the bathroom/en-suite fixtures and fittings are tired and old and need refurbishing. Bedding was clean and beds were comfortable. Would I book this property again - probably not.
We had another amazing week in Hope Cove, it is a fantastic spot with small children and the house so close to the beach meant it is a very welcome break from the car.
The service from Toad Hall cottages was superb throughout, especially considering a last minute change of plans. It is a real shame the house is up for sale, the location and facilities were excellent and I would definitely have stayed again had it been an option.
A fantastic place for our holiday with 3 children under 5. So convenient for shops, pub, cream teas and ice-cream, we hardly wanted or needed to leave the village!
Extremely comfortable, homely house.
This is a lovely property in a lovely location. however it could do with a lot of TLC.
This is the second time we have stayed at Rockcliffe, and we enjoyed our holiday very much thank you.
