Wonderful large family home in great location. Very comfortable and plenty of space for everyone. Swimming pool area fantastic. Our 3rd stay and already booked for next year. House usually sparklingly clean but this time there were issues hence only 3 stars for cleanliness but trust this was a one off.

A fantastic house with loads of space an excellent pool etc with fantastic views from almost all of the house. The only negative is the hill climb back from Westward Ho but a small tip a taxi is about 5 and that solves the problem if you dont fancy the walk back up the hill a fantastic holiday one we will never forget five stars

A lovely spacious comfortable house for family holiday of different generations with great views of the sea. The bedroom with balconies is particularly special. Great family times around the large dining table in the spacious kitchen with French doors out into the garden.

The property was magnificent, but after paying 5700 for a weeks accommodation I would have expected enough toilet rolls, soap and shower gel, dish washer tablets etc to be provided for the stay! Also found a mouldy mug and a tray of roasted potatoes in the oven! Check in after 5 pm and departure before 10am, removes almost a whole day from the rentRead moreal. Overall the property outweighs these indiscretions, but these few things would have elevated it to a really amazing holiday. Hide

Not suitable if you like walking to the beach a very steep hill to it. Pool area is a great asset to this property. Two very large Lourges which are great for spreading yourself out also very different in decor one very traditional and the other very modern. Very well equipped kitchen which I understand is being totally refitted in January.
