“Fantastic location”
Reviewed 13 March 2018 for a stay in November 2017

Couldn't ask for more. Well designed, cosy and comfortable and right on the beach. Fell asleep listening to the sounds of waves on the shore. Just lovely!

“Comfortable, cosy chalet on beautiful Branscombe beach”
Reviewed 23 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Found the booking process really user friendly and professional and always received a response or acknowledgment by return. To welcome us, there was a tea tray set with tea and a packet of biscuits and milk in the fridge- what a lovely touch and much appreciated after a long journey.
As soon as we walked through the door we thought ' This is wonderful....wish it was ours ' and for one glorious week it was ! The layout of the chalet is very space efficient- a good sized bathroom (great bath and shower etc); everything you need in the kitchen ; the double and twin bedrooms are really comfortable ; great sea views from the large, comfy, main living/ sitting area and of course from the veranda. When we were inside/ on the veranda we were completely unaware of neighbouring chalets.Staying at Wagtail made us unwind, relax and be happy - there is something magical about falling asleep and waking up to the sounds of the sea. Can't wait to return.

“Superb location. Lovely chalet let down by poor cleanliness upon arrival.”
Reviewed 28 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

An amazing holiday in an incredible location. Our only quibble was the cleanliness of the chalet upon arrival. Other than that, it was a brilliant adventure for the whole family. Highly recommend.

Thank you for your feedback and we are sorry to hear that the chalet was not as clean as it should have been on your arrival. We are only a few minutes away from the beach and would happily have come straight down and rectified things if you had contacted us. Hopefully this won't have spoilt your enjoyment of this magical location and the fabulous weather.

Reviewed 16 June 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Such a wonderful place, perfect chalet with all you need and enough space to lounge in whilst looking out at the stunning sea view. The walks and the sunsets are fantastic and you experience complete bliss here. Can't rate it highly enough. Love Wagtail!

“A different world”
Reviewed 12 June 2016 for a stay in July 2014

Wagtail is a million miles away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Tucked away under the cliffs adjacent to the beach, you find yourself in a different world. The younger children loved searching for unusual pebbles before breakfast, we all enjoyed the walks in all directions during the day, and there are two pubs less than an hour's stagger away for those who want an evening of Devonshire culture. The roads to get there are very narrow and winding, and the waves just keep on rolling in, all night long, which really adds to the atmosphere and cosines of the place.
