“Lovely home from home - very clean and close to amenities :o)”
Reviewed 22 February 2013 for a stay in February 2013

We only had a short 3 night stay - but the house is fully equipped and was a real home from home. Great location, very clean and well presented.

Unfortunately the weather was awful when we were there so we did spend a lot of time in the bungalow but did have everything we needed. Although I would recommend taking some of your own towels as we were only given one (sml) bath towel and one hand towel per person,
Due to the weather - we did stay in warm and cosy and would have preferred a larger TV, so maybe something to consider upgrading in the future, but apart from that, this is a lovely holiday let and would recommend to others.

PS My daughter is a wheelchair user and the house was easily accessible so that was a great bonus for us as properties offering this as few and far between. We do hope to visit Dolphins again :o)

“Excellent accommodation”
Reviewed 19 October 2012 for a stay in October 2012

Our second stay at Dolphins was just as enjoyable as our first one a year ago. The bungalow is maintained to a very high standard and comfortable. The weather was wet and windy for most of our week and it was wonderful to have such a cosy place to return to where we could relax, watch dvd's, read, play games or take a nap! Pevensey Bay is a great location and has enough small stores and take-aways in walking distance to provide a different meal every night.

“A wonderful and relaxing experience”
Reviewed 23 January 2012 for a stay in January 2012

A beautiful bungalow that feels like home as soon as you walk in and has everything that you need. It's very peaceful and in a great location very close to the sea and has a lovely garden. All of the rooms are a very good size and there is lots of space for a family or large group. The bathroom is also big with a really good shower! The property is even better than advertised!

We had an amazing and relaxing stay here and would definitely come back again!

“Beautiful bungalow in a wonderful location.”
Reviewed 21 July 2011 for a stay in July 2011

From the moment we arrived we felt 'At Home' The bungalow was modern, clean and had every facility you need for a happy holiday.
The location was perfect too. Just a walk away from the beach and total relaxation. Not over busy or commercialised either. Perfect for families.
Great little village with every shop you could possibly need! all within walking distance too from the bungalow.
Great situation for trips out too with Eastbourne just a short drive away and the beautiful Waterfront Harbour is a must to visit!!
We didn't want to go home at the end of our stay so that says it all!!
