The location and equipping is very good at this cottage. Kitchen was very nice and roomy. Like this place a great deal even though it was much smaller than we envisaged. Great garden too. Really a two person two people place. Only downside was the bathroom being downstairs but as to is a very old cottage that is part of the deal.

Brilliant location. Pub close by excellent and dog friendly. Close to Brook beach 2miles of good dog walking which wasn't included in 'dog friendly beaches'. A true Dog secure garden with room for them to run about.

Reviewed by Raymond 21st June 2019

Perfect location very quiet, lovely big garden. The cottage was very clean as I am very particular with hygiene and cleanness. The bed was comfortable and fresh. Janet was very obliging and her neighbour really could not do enough for us. Would love to come back and we recommend the cottage. Best ever holiday thank you.

A lovely cottage in a very pleasant and peaceful location Beautiful garden, great for our pet dog. Plenty of lovely walks and beaches within easy and quick access

Reviewed by Louise 12th April 2019

We really enjoyed our stay at this lovely cottage (although my 6ft 1in husband did keep banging his head on the low ceilings but this was to be expected in a cottage so not a criticism, just a warning to other tall people!). We loved all the decorations that made it feel really homely; some rental properties can feel a bit lifeless and impersonal sRead moreo this was appreciated. I also really enjoyed the well equipped kitchen which made cooking evening meals very easy. The garden was also a big bonus! Hide

A lovely thatched cottage in a very pretty lane. Ideal for walks and only 500 yds from main road into Newport and other towns etc. Very clean and very well equipped. A large secured garden (ideal for dogs) Stairs to bedrooms might be a problem for elderly. Other than that, a perfect retreat.
