“Perfect family holiday home”
Reviewed 12 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

With six children ranging 2 -9 years we found this property a great base for our holiday. The owners were friendly & helpful when booking & the children loved the Easter treats & card Sue had left for them.
Just a short walk into the town & beach it was very accessible.
Plenty of room, a nice spacious house with a nice little enclosed garden for the childrens egg hunt. The lounge & kitchen/dining area accommodated us easily. Nice sized bedrooms with lots of storage space.
Well equipped kitchen & whole house in general, games & books in lounges etc. Plenty of hot water & good heating & wahing machine.
General use instructions put around the house were extremely helpful.
Had been worried about parking but it wasn't an issue at all.
Will definately be returning for another break.

Spent New Year here with my sister and nieces. We range in age from 11 to 56 and every one of us was happy with the accommodation. It is spacious and well equipped and has all the instructions needed for services. It is close to town and has some great views Sue, the owner, is great to deal with and New Year here is fun and fabulous with the whole town turning out in fancy dress. I think it is a great place for a holiday.

“Good sized family property”
Reviewed 17 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

My grand children loved the property, expecially the kitchen,where they could perch on the stone shelf. The adults in the group found the kitchen a bit oppressive, so we spent as little time in there as possible.
The rest of the house was fine, nice & spacious. Good location.
Black Swan pub near by does good food & is child friendly.
If you have problems with your knees, then this isn't the property for you as the stairs to the kitchen, bathroom are quite steep. Had to wipe the outside of the kettle over with a antibac wipe as the outside of the kettle was dirty.

Very pleased that all 10 of you found Bayview spacious and well located, with a good pub nearby.
Glad the children liked the kitchen but appreciate it may have been a squeeze for 10 of you as the kitchen is set up for 8.
Apologies re kettle, hope the wedding went well.
