October 2011: "Another great week. Our 7th time here - the area is still beautiful and well worth exploring. The cottage is lovley and perfect for use."
August 2011: "Single mum of 3 teenagers and 2 dogs has found an ideal place to be- hurrah! 1. Comfy beds - teenagers need their sleep. 2. Cosy cottage - mum likes beams, deep window sills, warmth and sea views - all here. 3.Immediate walks - plenty straight from the door. 4. Lots of great but inexpensive places to visit. 5. Forest walk - a great change from the beaches. And from the teenagers! "Wow, loved it here. One of the best holidays I've had with our family. Surfing was great."

F, J & J – Nottingham – May 2009. “ What an absolute joy – beautiful cottage, excellent location – internet doesn’t do justice to this cottage and area. To be greeted by a deer on the grass first thing in the morning, grouse and peasants taking a walk down the lane and the songs of the skylarks – marvellous. Thanks Karen and Gary – we will be back and will recommend to our families and friends.”

When we first arrived we were amazed at how beautifully restored the Old Stables were, until you see it for yourself the pictures don’t do it justice.
