    “Overall a very lovely holiday but there were a few issues I’d like to share with you: Firstly, the parking is very tight and the lane the house is on makes it even harder to park in your spaces.”

    You can get 3 cars in, but it’s very snug. However it was nice to go out and know you had a parking space to return to so it relieved a lot of stress. ...

    You can get 3 cars in, but it’s very snug. However it was nice to go out and know you had a parking space to return to so it relieved a lot of stress. The double bedroom on the middle floor that shares the main bathroom did not have a wardrobe? It had drawers but no hanging space which is a little strange for a double bedroom. The amenities were good; a little disappointing there’s nothing in the information book on how the cooker (induction top) works as it’s all digital and there were no hoover attachments so cleaning wasn’t the easiest task! There was ample cutlery, glasses, crockery but there were 2 Pyrex dishes and 2 baking trays provided - this is definitely not enough when cooking for 12 people. Luckily I brought my own stuff, large oven dishes, baking trays, roasting dishes, saucepans (must be induction this) and frying pans and we’d have been in trouble without them! And the island in the kitchen makes the working space very limited so only 2-3 People can be in the kitchen at one time. There is a large pantry/larder which you can store all your dry goods in, which was ideal but the fridge is very small for a house that sleeps 12 people. Seating is also abit of an issue as 12 cannot fit around the dining table easily, 10 is a squeeze. There isn’t enough seats in the lounge if you all want to sit together, nor outside. We tried to contact the number provided on the email confirmation as instructed for preferences (zip linked beds) on a number of occasions and simply got no response so that didn’t give us a lot of confidence for emergencies? The bathrooms were very modern and plenty of hot water which was brilliant as after the beach or a coastal walk everyone could have a shower without any worries! The location of the house was good and was only a short walk to the camp site shop, pubs and local shops which were ideal. The Chichester arms did lovely food, we thoroughly enjoyed our meal there. The house is positioned well for coastal walks, but the steps to rockham beach have been eroded by the sea so it’s not reachable, but woolacombe is a 30-40 min stroll away (abit tougher on the way back!!) so not too bad! There are beaches closer but we had dogs with us so had to choose the dog friendly ones. As I said, overall a lovely stay with brilliant company and the house was ideal for what we wanted and for the price we paid for it in September. Personally I don’t think it meets expectations for the mid-summer months prices being asked for it, but that’s my opinion.
