    “Balcony Cottage was fabulous - full of character, spacious, extremely clean, very comfortable and well equipped.”

    The location was wonderful, with good pubs, the beach and wonderful walks right on the doorstep. And the sea views were absolutely stunning. The only problem was trying to pay for the carpark for the week. It was very hard to get a phone signal and the call cut off just as I was about to get to the end of a long, tedious process. I ended up downloading the parking app, which also took quite a while, as you have to set up an account, then paying that way. It was a shame to feel so stressed right ...

The only problem was trying to pay for the carpark for the week. It was very hard to get a phone signal and the call cut off just as I was about to get to the end of a long, tedious process. I ended up downloading the parking app, which also took quite a while, as you have to set up an account, then paying that way. It was a shame to feel so stressed right at the beginning of the holiday. I'd advise people not to bother trying to pay by phone and to download the app before the holiday. The Wi-Fi at the cottage was very good.
