House has amazing outside space walks all around with children's playground and two great pubs in the village. At low tide it is possible to walk over the estuary to next village to shops etc Good sailing and rowing in estuary and wonderful beaches Close by. House is modern elegant,fantastic views with good sized bedrooms and lovely family area and outside area with barbecue. I hope to come again soon.
A tastefully decorated house with ample room for family and friends. The main kitchen/living space has large windows with a superb view of the estuary you can savour over a cup of coffee/glass of wine. The children loved the garden and we all enjoyed BBQs on the terrace. Looking forward to our next stay!
We rented Spes Bona in July of this year. We arrived in the dark, but still had no problems finding the house. We were instantly impressed with the accommodation, notably the spacious open plan living/kitchen area. With huge windows I suspected we were going to have a good view when we woke up and the sun was out. I was not disappointed - the pictures on here simply do not do the view justice. Whether having a cup of tea in the morning or a gin and tonic at dusk, I cannot imagine many better places to be sat than the deck at Spes Bona. The view is stunning and the garden furniture extremely comfortable.
The bedroom we stayed in was clean, comfortable and also had a superb view over the estuary. And the bunk-beds downstairs were perfect for our two boys. It was just the four of us, but the house could have accommodated another family with ease.
The kitchen was well equipped and all the appliances appeared to be straight out of the wrapper. There was also a large gas BBQ on the deck which I was happy to put through it’s paces!
One word of warning - you do need to keep an eye on the tides or you’ll have a short drive/longish walk to the shops for supplies (there is a pathway that is only usable at low tide to get to the nearest shops and amenities) which our children loved walking across and never proved a problem to us.
The garden was very pretty and well maintained, adding to the quality of view you had from the decked area.
The information pack provided pointed us in the direction of lots of great beaches, pubs and activities that we might otherwise have struggled to find.
In summary we had a fantastic week and I would be surprised if we didn’t come back again next year, perhaps with another family so I can bore someone other than my wife about the view!
