Just spent nearly a week at Summer House and could of stayed longer. Everything you could need is supplied and with the fab weather used the hob on the BBQ for a cooked breakfast and then sat outside with great views. Hot tub was such a bonus at the end of the day, everything was kept clean and well looked...

We spent a very relaxing 5 nights at The Summer House; Tina, the owner, was very thoughtful and there were basic supplies (bread/butter/milk/eggs/tea/coffee) already there as well as a lovely chilled bottle of wine. We hit the jackpot with the weather and enjoyed BBQs on the decking in the evenings and wallowed in the hot tub once it got a...

We spent a few nights at Ivar cottage in late July, What a beautiful place! Lots of old world charm but with all the mod-cons. The location is excellent, handy to the beach and walks to the cliffs and downs. We found the accommodation to be very clean and comfortable and the hosts extremely welcoming and friendly. Thanks a lot...

We came here for our honeymoon and it was absolutely beautiful! It was so relaxing to sit in the hot tub while the BBQ cooked in the evening.

Really recommend this B and B if you want privacy and comfort in a great location. It's basically a log cabin in the owner's garden, with its own mini kitchen, shower room and lounge area with huge tv and squishy leather sofas. We loved it!
