“Perfect family get together”
Reviewed 2 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Shells cottage is lovely and clean and very well equipped. Local takeaway delivers and so do tesco. Not overlooked and lovely garden for the dogs. We were left alone but owners at the end of the phone if needed. A very relaxing place that is perfect for family celebrations or friends get together. I will definitely return.

“Plenty of room for twelve people with a super garden and hot tub”
Reviewed 10 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Do not be put off by the holiday lodges as you arrive. Once you get down the hill to Shells cottage it is lovely and private. The garden is large and interesting and includes a little building with a toilet and sun loungers stored in it plus a pond and water feature fountain. At the bottom of the garden is a pergola with two large picnic benches and a barbecue. There is another table outside the back door next to the hot tub. Inside the house the dining / living area is spacious with a lovely wooden floor a big dining table and comfortable sofas books and games. Great kitchen with small old fashioned table. Bedrooms: Upstairs Three double one twin and one bunk. Furnishings a little dated in some rooms but all had good quality white bed linen. All the bedrooms lacked a chair and decent mirrors. The downstairs double bedroom is small with the bed against the wall possibly better suited to one person. There are two bathrooms upstairs one with bath with shower over and another with just a shower. These are better than the picture and the shower room is not really en suite as advertised. Despite minor criticisms this house is great for a family holiday as there is lots to do in the area and the house and garden are really spacious.

“Perfect property for 12 persons.”
Reviewed 17 November 2014 for a stay in November 2014

We have been going away as a group of 12 adults for 12 years now, always to the same place, which was sadly unavailable due to a landslip. I found this cottage and we were all delighted with what we found. Shells Cottage is very spacious with plenty of room for all. The beds are very comfortable as are the sofas. The kitchen has everything you might need (apart from some large serving spoons) and is a pleasure to cook in. Everywhere was very clean and Lloyd and his wife were very helpful with minor problems. The first step off the decking could do with a luminous strip as 3 of us fell off as it was not well lit. Hot-tub was well used. Thanks very much for a lovely break in great surroundings...the Howler Monkeys calling in the morning was a surreal sound until we realised they were living nearby ! The photos on the web-site do not do the property justice and for info we had a disabled person in our group and he managed very well although the property is not wheelchair friendly.

“Relaxed in a friendly environment”
Reviewed 7 November 2014 for a stay in November 2014

This place is fabulous the pictures do not do it justice at all. The bedrooms are spacious clean and the place is well equipped. Hot tub was a luxury although do watch your step when getting out and into the kitchen can become a little dangerous. There was a BBQ outside although we didn't have the weather for it! Plenty to do around and if you want to relax this is the place to do it as it's very quiet and serene. Thank you to the owners for such a pleasant place to stay we hope to do it again x Williams family x

“Great Anniversary Celebration”
Reviewed 10 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We booked a week to celebrate our parents Golden Wedding Anniversary and we were over the moon. The cottage was spacious and well appointed and the location is ideal for a family ranging from 2 to 72.
We would all recommend the cottage to a group between 6 and 12.
The hot tub was a real treat!!
