“Outstanding Coastal Cottage”
Reviewed 2 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We have all just returned from Sandcastles and would like to say what a lovely position the cottage is in. The huge conservatory was really lovely to eat our meals in and watch the waves. The whole place was spotlessly clean with plenty of room for adults children and dogs, who are most welcome on the beach. I would just like to mention that to get onto the beach access is via 2 sets of steps which could prove difficult for some. All in all we had a lovely time and would recommend to anyone

“Fantastic views!”

people found this review helpful

Very clean and comfortable, welcome pack and bottle of wine very pleasant surprise.
Accommodation very spacious and well equipped. Good parking, could easily fit three cars on the drive if necessary. Very dog friendly. The views of the beach on the website make it look as though it is accessed directly from your back gate. However there is a footpath directly behind the property which is above a very high concrete sea wall. There are steps to the beach from the sea wall, but those directly behind the property are currently not in use.

“Absolutely fabulous”
Reviewed 12 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Arrived at Sandcastles to find wine chilling in the fridge and fresh bread, we went out to be greeted by a wonderful sea view and the sound of the waves. The bungalow was lovely and comfortable and so warm. We were lucky to have sunshine every day and sat in the huge conservatory listening to the waves. Our dog Ruby loved sitting out looking out to sea watching the seagulls. Total relaxation and chilled out completely. Nice walk to the pub along the coastal path, very friendly staff made us and the dog very welcome, food good too. Overall can highly recommend Sandcastles and would visit again.

“R E L A X I N G !!!”
Reviewed 15 December 2014 for a stay in December 2014

Wow,what a wonderful place to chill. My wife and our dog, Dolly, spent a week here and it was one of those places you just didnt want to leave. We had walks along the beach every day and the dramatic sea made it even better. The house is cosy, warm and clean and lived up to and exceeded our expectations. We spent hours sitting in the conservatory looking out at the waves and the wind and also the sunset and moon are wonderful. The house has allthe modcons you need even wifi and the welcome pack was a nice touch.
We arrived stressed from some tough times at work but had forgotten about everything when we left.

“An absolutely great find”
Reviewed 2 December 2014 for a stay in November 2014

We have just returned from a weekend at Sandcastles. I went with my husband, Dad and brother and sister in law. The property was so clean and welcoming as soon as you stepped in. The welcome pack was a lovely touch, even to a pint of milk in the fridge for our cuppa! The conservatory is the crowning glory. It had magnificent views over the sea and we spent the first evening out there chatting and drinking and just listening to the waves crashing. So relaxing. It was just what we all needed. We had a great time, and want to do it again next year.

Thanks Laura and Peter
