When we first pulled up our house truly had the wow factor and it carried on inside, large bedrooms, mostly ensuite all with great views or patio doors that opened into the garden. Large open plan ground...

We stayed in Beachcombers cottage at the end of July for a week. The standard of accommodation is truly second to none, and they have thought of every last detail. It was exceptionally hot while we were there, but there were electric fans provided in each bedroom, so that helped. The beds were firm but comfy, with nice white bedlinen....

Had a spa day with massage treatments.... one word to describe it.... AMAZING. The staff were friendly, the massage was perfection, so relaxing. The spa was great, hot tub was hot with lots of bubbles. Chilled, relaxed, happy day. Wish I could do it every week, if I could afford to I would, prices very reasonable.

I think this is our 7th time here now and we have booked again for next year. We both love the outdoor life and with a dog, love the fact that we can walk straight out of the door and go for miles. The cottage we always stay in is Barley Park, a great space for two people, the garden...

Five of us went to go and get spa treatments here, but owing to a confusion with our booking only two of us could get them. This was fine, we think the confusion was our fault. However, the guy (the son) on reception let us all in to use the pool while two of us had treatments. He said nothing...
