Reviewed 3 weeks ago for a stay in February 2018

We loved our stay at Thornton. It doesn’t look big from the outside but is like the tardis inside. The bedrooms were all spacious and lovely and the kitchen and living room were stylish and cosy. Very short walk to the beach. We will definitely come back when it’s hotter!

Management response:

Hi Jess, So pleased to hear you had a great weekend. A Tardis does sum up the house well when viewed from the front! You're very welcome to come back in the summer months although the local micro climate does make September and October a great time to visit. Many thanks Bob and Georgie

Rather belatedly, I would like to agree with previous comments that this place is perfect for special family occasions, in our case a 70th birthday party for Grandad last October. Rather unprepossessing externally, but a totally different impression internally, spacious, light, modernly stylish, attractively furnished, well equipped ( though would suggest a few extra basics in the form of cups/plates...

Hi Susan, Thank you so much for your kind review. Feed back is always appreciated. I had increased the number of glasses recently but I'll check the crockery situation. We'd initially provided enough crockery for 16, so double the amount required, but there may have been more breakages than I was aware of! Dell Quay and Drifters are two firm...

We had 3 days at Thornton over New Year with some friends - 4 adults and 4 kids (aged 5-8). The location is brilliant and right next to the beach. This is a really fantastic rental which both we and our kids all loved. The bedrooms and family area are all beautifully furnished and felt like real home from home....

Management response:

So glad to hear that you all had a great New Year in the Wittering's. I'm sure you took part in the local charity New Years day dip in the sea, hence the need for the wood burner!
