We stayed in Brenton Breakers in April and found the place exactly what we wanted. Lovely 2 en-suite bedrooms and family room, dining room and kitchen as open living area was roomy and nicely decorated. A superb view over the ocean with the most stunning sunsets you can imagine! Service was also very good! I forgot something in the unit and Chantel couriered it back to me for which I was very grateful! I can really recommend Brenton Breakers!

It was great to be back after our first visit in 2017, The reception was great and Marisha was very welcoming and helpful. The view is why we went back, and it did not disappoint. A bonus is that the units are serviced daily on week days, which is not always the case with self catering. The only negative was that some of the kitchen equipment (pans and kettle) are way overdue for replacement.

The villa is clean with all the necessary amenities. 2 bedrooms each with private bathroom can comfortably accommodate 4 adults. Overlooking the ocean with a private path down the cliff to an almost private beach. Both Sunset and sunrise were amazing. You cant go wrong here.

The view of the Brenton-on-sea from the Brenton Breakers stay was mesmerising. They definitely have the best views of the ocean and also access to a serene and untouched beach down the cliff. It’s easily accessible and is an easy trek for a moderately fit person.
