best cottage ever
Another wonderful holiday at this cottage. Everything is there that you could possibly need and spotlessly clean. Top class furnishings and bedding. The most peaceful place ever. The area is stunning and you must go to the fish and chip van on a Saturday evening - best fish and chips for a long time!

Stunning Cottage, Stunning Location!
We stayed here last week. The cottage was as pretty as a picture, outside and stunning inside. All furnishings were of the highest quality, as was the bedding. All four of us agreed we had great sleeps. There is a beautiful and spacious open-plan kitchen and lounge. The kitchen facilities are first class, and more than you would ever need. Even provided me with my favorite Dulce Gusto coffee machine and coffee and a luxurious welcome pack. There is a large dining area between the kitchen and lounge. There, you'll fined a lovely, big table that easily seats six. Again, the cutlery and, Denby, dining set were of great quality. The lounge is tastefully furnished and decorated and soft furnishing as same. All seating was very comfortable. There is a large TV, large selection of dvds and loads of board games and books. Now for the cherry on the cake!! The location and view. It was amazing. The patio garden had steps directly onto the waterfront. The view from the lounge and patio are fantastic. We even had a telescope with us and were treated to dark sky's and a fantastic view of Jupiter and three of it's moons. There is so much more to be said, but I don't want to start boring you. Suffice to say the place is fantastic with owners who communicate as you would need. I,HIGHLY, recommend. We have already booked a summer break😁

Lovely situation
This was a wonderful holiday in a really attractive cottage right beside the sea. There was everything in the cottage you could want plus edible extras! The view was terrific and as bird watchers there were plenty seabirds and waders to watch. So peaceful and quiet. Thank you Selma.

Superb cottage
This was our second stay at this lovely cottage. It is tastefully furnished and very well equipped and spotlessly clean.The location is stunning literally on the beach with a great patio overlooking the sea. Great for watching the dolphins. The garden is fully enclosed so we could let our dogs out with no worries. With the lovely Admirals Inn a short walk away in this picturesque village, great clifftop and beach walks, what else do you need. We will definitely be back.

Crooked Hythe Cottage - Outstanding
We fell in love with this cottage, our only complaint being we didn’t book for longer. It’s immaculate inside and out and furnished to a truly high standard. The beds were super comfy. The hosts have thought of everything and each drawer and cupboard is filled with the essentials you need aswell as the little things you may have forgotten to bring. Towels, beach towels, loo roll, iron and ironing board and a cute little basket of doggy towels and toys too. The patio area has a private gate and steps leading down to a little beach with access to a picnic table. The kids loved it and I would happily have sat there all day watching the sea, birds and occasional dolphins! We were in town for a wedding and a few family members had booked cottages as well as nearby hotels. Most popped by to say hello and all agreed we’d hit the jackpot with our cottage. I’m biased but Crooked Hythe was by far the nicest. The communication from our host was really good too, contacting us the week of our visit to advise us of the check in arrangements and to answer any questions we had. Can’t fault it in anyway, we hope to pay another visit soon.

Thanks so very much for taking the time to review your stay after your busy (and too short) visit. We are very pleased you enjoyed the cottage so very much and also appreciate the extra promotion of the cottage to the rest of your family! We hope very much to hear from you and your family again for perhaps a longer stay in the future. Best wishes, Selma & Rob

Fantastic property
This is a beautiful cottage, immaculately maintained by the owners. The location right on the sea gives views of the boats coming in and out of the harbour as well as oystercatchers and eider ducks close by. Dark sky views of the night sky and would be ideal place to see the northern lights. Lots to do in the area and good restaurants, especially for seafood

stunning setting and beautiful property
Everything was perfect! Stunning inside and out and was spotlessly clean. Everything you needed was provided, including a very generous welcome pack! My mum is not very mobile but you could sit all day and admire the views. It's the best cottage we have stayed at in all the years we have done this type of holiday. Would highly recommend.

Lovely!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the Crooked Hythe. The cottage is well decorated and absolutely spotless and the view superb.! The welcome pack was the best we've ever had and we've stayed in many self catering cottages! The kitchen is well equipped and there's a plentiful supply of dvds and board games should the weather necessitate staying indoors. We will not hesitate to return!
