The Christmas decorations and welcome package were really appreciated. We had a wonderful holiday. Having used the property in the Summer we knew it would suit us but I have to admit I was unsure whether a Christmas holiday would work. It did, our grandchildren loved it just as much.

Mrs Andrea H,

We loved this property, it was perfect for our family. There were toys provided and a puppet theatre which my girls loved! There was every cooking utensil we needed which made self catering a breeze. We loved the big fridge freezer and water/ice machine. The washing machine did not work when we arrived, but the owners were easy to contact and lovely. They replaced the machine within two days and it was lovely to meet them! We would definitely use this property again.

Mrs Hannah B,

What a privilege to stay in this wonderful family home. It really felt like staying in a much loved family home rather than a sterile holiday apartment. It’s very spacious, two receptions rooms, one of which entertained our children greatly. Boxes of toys perfect for a 4 and 7 year old and the table football went down very well on wet days. We really had no need to bring any of our own toys and books!. There was also a whole room full of wet suits and surfboards to borrow which we tried out. The large garden at the back gave the children some running about time although a very steep slope so may need to take care with younger children. Kitchen was I think the best equipped we have ever stayed in. Everything imaginable to cook, bake and roast if you had wanted to do a lot of cooking! The main selling point of course with this house is the views. From nearly every window imaginable, the vast Woolacombe beach, the gorgeous sunsets and even a telescope to look more closely. For food in the village, we would highly recommend Beach House, especially the Sunday roast.

Mrs k,

A well equipped family home in a superb location.

Mr Richard A,
