Stormy Castle has everything I look for in a rental for a big group: A big kitchen with a table that can sit 14 with ease. Nice bedrooms and good bathrooms with plenty of hot water and decent pressure for the shower. There's loads of space to spread out between the living room, map room, conservatory and outdoor seating.
You are 10 minutes walk from a lovely surfing beach and the cliff top walks are literally on the doorstep,
My only criticism is the cooking facilities: A single oven, hob and a microwave are not enough if you want to cook dinner for everyone at the same time. A rental this size really needs two ovens. But would I stay here again? Absolutely,

“A lovely week of relaxation, sand and hill top climbs”
Reviewed 1 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Just spent a week as an invited guest with family and friends. Stormy castle is set in such a beautiful location with sea and hill top walks, tranquility and plenty of reading. This is an ideal rental for large groups of adults and children with plenty of activities. We had plenty of BBQ's when the weather was nice and if it rained you could easily find a space to do your own thing. There is a public footpath next to the building which took you all the way to the beach or across the hill tops if you felt energetic. Would like to come back again but it always seems to be booked up !!

“Perfect house for a large group.”
Reviewed 10 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Owners response times great. Property ideal for our group, ages 7 to 72, everything we needed there. Exceptional views & with plenty of footpaths for lovely walks. Beach 10 minutes with miles of sand & good surfing. Village similar distance, shop on way to beach but would recommend initial supermarket delivery. Best were views, space for all activities & a table to seat 14. Fantastic holiday enjoyed by all, will return if we get the chance.

“Amazing retreat!”
Reviewed 27 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We have just returned from a week away at Stormy Castle. 13 of us went away to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary and the only words to describe the whole experience is 'absolute perfection'. The location is perfect as the house is set upon a hill and overlooks the sea. The grounds are immaculate and many an early evening was spent playing lawn bowls, cricket etc. The house is very well looked after and there was enough space for us all to feel we weren't living on top of each other.

We are at the Kings arms and,for our anniversary meal, Fairyhill. This hotel was amazing and well worth a visit as a special treat.

The weather was absolutely superb. We were very lucky. I'd reccomend surf lessons from
WSF and taking body boards as the water was really warm.

I have no negatives about this holiday. It was the best family break I have been on.

“Fantastic family house”
Reviewed 8 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014
1
person found this review helpful

Fantastic family house with just about everything you could want. Very well equipped. Kids loved it as it seemed to go on for ever and just so much to explore.
But the view over the sea is just out of this world, and to see the sun set each evening was just wonderful.
What was so nice is that 10 minutes away from the beach down a path by the house. Also many other walks near by.

Lastly a little word of thanks to Helen who put up with more than one odd question as a bunch of Belgians tried to organise the holiday via an intermediary in the UK. So patient.

All in all fantastic. Many thanks
