We recently stayed in Rainbow Cottage with a large family group of six adults and two children, the house easily fitted us all in, and we never felt on top of each other. There was enough sofa space for us all to sit together with enough rooms to have space too if required.
The cottage is comfortably furnished and has a nice selection of toys/games/dvds/books which is a great addition. Stairgates were also a great safety addition for young children.
We have rented many cottages, and this is one of the best - the only critique I could give it would be the late check in time. 4pm seems overly late when most cottages are usually 2pm - if just feels as the renter you lose most of your first day.
Visitors should try out Hive Beach, its the closest too the cottage and its very quiet and unspoilt, even in August! You can also take dogs too, (at one end of the beach) which you cant on many of the beaches.
We had a lovely time, thank you.
This cottage is really lovely. It's very spacious, there were 4 adults and 3 under 5's in our party, yet never once were we under each others feet. Plenty of space for our travel cots without requiring expertise in acrobatics to get round the bedrooms with them in.
There was no shortage of towels including tea towels and everywhere is so well equipped. The kitchen pretty much has everything you can imagine needing and there are hairdryers, books, millions of dvds, magazines, games so even if you get rained in all week you'll be sure to have something to do, even some childrens toys.
Fantastic to have free wifi and nice to be trusted to have access to the phone too, as I'm sure there are some who would take advantage of this facility.
The small village is lovely and there is also a small play area with a slide/climbing frame, swings and grassy field and basketball court a minutes walk away, I'm not sure whether this is noted on the 'area info' but was definitely a plus for us, especially as we had an hour or so to kill until our check in time when we arrived.
Definitely recommend this property to families, couples, anyone really.
Also worth noting, very helpful owner. The only minor point was that check in time was quite late (4pm) however, this may have only been on this particular day and also, the owner did suggest if we needed to get in earlier (I'd ordered a grocery delivery) I could ring their housekeeper to liase. So I'm confident if this had have been an issue, it would've been easily rectified, like I said, very helpful owner.
