Northam Burrows Country Park which provides a wonderful backdrop for scenic walks amongst the sand dunes are just next to the beach.

Leading off the kitchen/diner is the bedroom which has doors leading out the courtyard and has a king-size bed which benefits from Hilary blinds and an en-suite shower and WC. A flight of stairs from the dining area leads you to the first floor where you will find a relaxing lounge area with Smart TV/DVD, sea views and a wood burner effect electric fire for those cooler evenings, its a great spot to sit and relax with a good book overlooking the burrows and to the sea beyond.

Heading outside there is a patio courtyard with table and chairs in front of the kitchen entrance and more relaxing rattan style furniture next to the hot tub, a perfect place to sit out and enjoy pre dinner drinks. There is parking provided for one car outside the double gates.

Lovely cosy and clean little cottage set in a nice location with a great view out to the sea. Easy walking distance to town but take a torch for the dark, narrow country lane so cars can see you. Hot tub was a nice addition, enjoyable even in the winter weather. Would recommend and would visit again.

This is quite a tricky one to review as when we checked in the cottage had not been cleaned... We knocked on the owners door and after a couple of drinks in the pub the cottage was ready. We havnt planned to go to the pub as the weather was terrible so was looking forward to a snug evening. Lovely cottage and very comfortable. We were disappointed Read moreto walk into an un cleaned cottage and also disappointed that we did not get a complimentary bottle of prosecco as stated in the welcome pack. Hide
