Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.
A fabulous cottage. Clean, modern, tidy and very well equipped. It really felt like home whilst we were staying there. Plenty of room for the children to play, great car parking spaces, close to the beach and a quick drive to a local corner shop. We enjoyed a fantastic week here. Throughly recommended!

When booking, the photos gave us an idea of of what our accommodation would be like, but it was so much more. Wonderful space inside, Plenty of room and a perfect base to move around from. Literally 5 min walk down to Sandilands beach or 5 min drive to Cranfield West. Cottage had a good living/kitchen area. Fantastic downstairs king bedroom and a great bathroom beside. Bathroom with large walk in shower, bath, sink and toilet. Upstairs has a Good double room and also a twin room. Bathroom upstairs has shower, sink, toilet. Lovely patio area if you fancy a lazy day and want to stay home. Property is gated so also have a little more security and privacy. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend to anyone, would definitely book again

Perfect holiday stay!
We stayed in this cottage/house for 2 weeks and absolutely loved it. The cottage is immaculate and caters for every need and more. Beautifully finished house with contemporary decor and space used to perfection. Very clean and hosts very easy and helpful to communicate with. Arrival and departure very simple and well thought out for guests. Facilities and space inside and outside are excellent. Welcome goodies are an added lovely kind gesture. We have already booked our next visit. Would highly recommend staying at this cottage, and look forward to our next stay. Off home to Scotland again!

We stayed over St. Patrick’s Day Weekend.
The cottage is maintained to an excellent standard and was spotless on arrival. We checked in and out without meeting the owner but all communication was easy and very helpful. Local shop is well stocked and a 5 minute walk from the beach.
I would definitely recommend this location and we’ll definitely return in the future

Superb holiday cottage
We spent a lovely few days in Cranfield cottage in July. The house is very well presented and exceptionally clean. Our grandchildren were happy that it was close to the caravan park and the beach were they made new friends. We would definitely recommend this property and look forward to our next visit.
