What a wonderful week we had. It is quite, clean and a beautiful, well maintained resort with friendly staff that is always there to assist when needed. Close to beach and other facilities with everything closeby when needed.

This was a pleasant surprise! I always get a bit itchy nowadays, considering I have a 2 year old toddler, but our ground floor unit was beautifully furnished and our unit overlooked the (fenced) swimming pool and the massive sand pit, so I could let my toddler run free whilst looking on from our "porch". The kitchen was very well...

We had a wonderful stay at Shearwater on Sea. It was awesome to watch the sea from the balcony even though we were not on the beach front! We were near a restaurant which also had good food. We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay there again.

I loved every minute and my husband said we'll have to bring the kids and our parents - make it a family holiday next time. JC and Carol, the hosts, were great - friendly and efficient. We'll be back and hope to find them there.

We spent two weeks here during our family vacation and found it to be great value for money. It is about 50m from the beach and across the street from the best beach bar / restaurant in town - no need for anything else. The view from our unit was great! We stayed in a newly refurbished self catering unit...

Carol & JC are efficient and helpful which makes the stay more pleasurable. Lovely pool, and garden area currently still under construction. Very good position one block from a wonderful beach, coffee shop & pizzeria. Not in the main centre of Sedgefield, but I prefer that. Upstairs units are more likely to have a sea view. Safe parking on site....
