Great property! Everything was very clean. Was lovely to arrive at the property and find essentials hamper waiting. A lovely personal touch, meaning we didn’t have to rush out to the shops on arrival, but instead could relax and enjoy a coffee. McColls and Lidl both a 2 min walk away and very convenient. There was a great selections of leaflets for local attractions as well as takeaway menus. Kitchen was well equipped- handy too that there were some dishwashing tablets in the cupboard. Short walk to two beautiful beaches and some lovely places to eat near the seafront. Road was quiet at night. Good off road parking for at least 2 vehicles. Overall a lovely experience- we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Mrs A,

The property is well situated to visit all the various places nearby, we did not have to travel any further than fifteen miles each day but had a good number of places that we enjoyed, food shopping nearby was excellent, there was a very good selection of eating out venues in the Babbycombe area and also down at the town marina area - but most important the weather was excellent all week, breakfast outside in the patio area each morning.

Mr G,
