Wonderful setting, good accommodation, excellent kitchen equipment—we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend the rental highly.

July 2019

The house is in a wonderful location and really well equipped. Really looking forward to going back next year.

May 2019

Loved it. We would love to come back again during the same week in two years' time.

July 2018

Yes we all enjoyed our stay

June 2018

South Riding was perfect for our family's requirements. Would be very interested in re-booking the property for the same week in 2019. Could you please let us know if and when that would be possible

November 2017

we had a great time with children and grandchildren to celebrate my 70th birthday. The house was great in fantastic location. Could not have been better, Thank you.

August 2017

We very much enjoyed our stay. It lends itself to a family holiday with children and grandchildren. Spacious enough for everyone to find their own space, a great garden for family games and a perfect location for the golf club where my husband has been a member for years and for the tennis courts and beaches. We particularly appreciate that we rarely have to use the car throughout the week and the coffee machine is one of the holiday highlights! Thankyou very much.

June 2017

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the house and had a great holiday.

May 2017

A brilliant find... we'll be back!

April 2017

South Riding is a nice cottage in a great location. The one complaint is that it is not at all clear from the description that the property is not detached. In fact, the photos are taken in such a way that the clear implication is that the property is detached. The fact that it is attached came as a surprise. The description is clearly misleading and must be fixed to state explicitly that the property is attached.

Many thanks indeed for your feedback, we have checked the location to ensure that the property itself is clearly visible on google maps showing the clear delineation between the neighbouring properties, and included in the description that South Riding is indeed semi-detached. The exterior photos are intended to show the right hand side divided by the hedge, and we are sorry if this was not clear in the pictures. We do hope that despite this you enjoyed the beautiful coastal setting, glorious recent weather and had a lovely week in Thurlestone.

Lovely House, great position Lock on on suite bathroom u/s Exterior of house could do with some tlc

Thank you for your feedback and for advising of the misbehaving lock. The housekeeper will check this and rectify on next changeover. The exterior repainting is planned for this autumn, which will freshen it up, the exterior weathers quickly being so close to the sea. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay.
