Shower was worryingly slippery, but apart from that it was lovely

We are pleased to see you had such a good stay. We have spoken with the cleaning team and they mentioned that there should have been a shower mat stored in the shower room for guests use. We would love to welcome you back to this lovely cottage.

We had a great holiday. Cottage is very well equipped best equipped we have stayed in, and we have stayed in lots of cottages. Very comfortable bed. View from the garden was lovely and it was llovely to see the sheep at the bottom of our garden. Would definitely recommend this cottage.

September 2018

The house was lovely and in particular the garden was so nice to sit in and enjoy. We used the patio table and in particular it was lovely to sit out at breakfast. It felt like a nice private space. The house was very well equipped with lots of space. We would definitely book the house again.

Loved this house so much. We had such a peaceful week here, I haven't slept so soundly in years! What a beautiful cottage! Fantastic setting in a quiet village with incredible views, we had lambs at the end of the garden, the children thought it was just brilliant! Gorgeous modern kitchen and bathrooms, the wet room was perfect for washing children down after a day on the beach. All the bedrooms are cosy and the beds super comfortable. I cannot recommend this cottage enough and definitely plan to book again.

A lovely well equipped house helped by having wonderful weather.

Neighbours were very friendly. Other places we stayed at had a selection of leaflets for local attractions. This would be a good idea. It might be worth trying to get a Toad Hall discount for The Cove. We loved it and went several times as well as having a takeaway.

We are delighted to see you enjoyed your stay at School Cottage and have rated the property as excellent. There is some information on local area attractions in the information folder at the property but we will look into adding some more. We do constantly look at reviewing our discount list so we will bear this in mind.
