Excellent house perfect location Will definitely stay again . Beautiful clean and comfortable

May 2019

The property was perfect in every way

March 2019

Wonderful home from home

January 2019

Well maintained property. A proper handle on the front door leading to the porch wouldn’t go amiss and some extra dishes and new crockery as it is all very chipped. Other than that, a fantastic place.

October 2018

We had a wonderful stay and it suited all our family requirements.

September 2018

We love this house, it’s our second time and WILL go again.

September 2018

The house was perfect for us. The set up of the bedrooms worked well for our two families. It is a great house for kids. The house is really well equiped with high quality items (dyson hoovers, good quality washing machine etc). The kitchen had all the utensils you need. We will definitely book this house again. It was immaculate when we arrived and has a lovely homely feel with all the mod cons. We had a minor issue with the dryer and ToadHall were quick to act. If I was being very picky then I would say that the water pressure isnt great, ie don't run any taps when you are in the upstairs shower otherwise it wont work and the I didnt like the foam matress but really these are common issues and someone else might find the bed great.

August 2018

Had another fantastic 2 weeks in this property can’t wait until next year

June 2018

Really enjoyed our stay at this property, likely to stay again in the future

May 2018

Had a wonderful holiday thank you. The location was everything we hoped for and more really. We hope to come back very soon.

October 2017

We loved the cottage and its location next to the beach with sea views to one side and views over the lake into the hills on the other is stunning. The cottage is very comfortable and spacious for a large party of 8, including small children and a dog. We will return!

August 2017

We had a fantastic holiday. We used to stay in shingle house a few years ago and it was lovely then but since the modernisation it is even better! Can't wait until next year. the Start Bay and Boat House do great food and the Sea Breeze is fantastic for cream teas and milk shakes!

June 2017

Beautiful house, I think the Jacksons have put so much thought into creating a delightful beach side property. Just wanted to say a huge thank you to them for giving us all a very memorable holiday! Kind regards Eve Lake

June 2017

We had a really wonderful time and were very impressed with the property and service provided by Toad Hall Cottages. Many thanks!

May 2017

Very happy - a great holiday in a lovely house. We are very familiar with the location as you will know from our previous bookings, this house was so much more welcoming than the property that we stayed in for the last 3 years. Thank you very much for the recommendation and for the discount associated with occupancy. We hope you will give us the opportunity to book again for next year.

October 2016
