“Faultless”
Reviewed September 21, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

My husband and I rented one of the police cottages for 3 nights and oh, it was great. What a treat. Clean, spacious, attractive, comfortable. Really nice. Our small grandson came to stay one night with us which was a surprise and it was lovely to have extra bathroom space - we had a lot of sand to deal with!
The furnishings and fixtures are of high spec so a real treat to use and enjoy. The beds and bedding in particular were totally fab. Luxury. For a rented property, the seating was really good too. Can't praise the comfort highly enough.
We will be back. The only downside ( in this modern age!) was the very patchy mobile phone reception which normally wouldn't have bothered us for a couple of days but we needed to contact family. Having said that, we managed to overcome that and we worked something out. It's not going to put us off coming again.
Thank you to the staff whom we met and also those behind the scenes who work so that we have pleasure .
