Brenton-on-sea chalets consist of two types - the simple units in a circular formation, and the two units which cater for larger families. We stayed in one of the larger units. There are two large units configured in the same way. Each house consists of a main house which sleeps six in three bedrooms, with two bathrooms, main-en-suite. The main bedroom is upstairs and has a beautiful sea view, with two armchairs and a table included in the large room. The other two rooms are average, with quite a lot of cupboard space all round.
The kitchen includes a dishwasher, although the units are serviced daily. The unit includes a lounge, TV, DSTV with most channels, a small dining room table, and a balcony with a Weber.
Alongside each main six-sleeper unit are two small two-sleeper units which have only a bedroom and bathroom, and have inter-leading (lockable) doors. This configuration allows extended family to stay in these units, where they can be private at night, but can be part of the larger family for mealtimes etc. This makes for each unit sleeping six, plus two additional on the one side and two additional people on the other making ten. If you don't use these units they can be sublet. We only used one sub unit, and we're never even aware of the goings on in the other sub unit, except for noticing there were people there.
There are two of these 6+2+2 configuration houses next to each other.
All units are a few hundred meters from the sea, although down (and back up) some quite steep steps. Older people may find them difficult to navigate.
The units are right above the swimming beach which has life guards.
We would go there again without hesitation.
