The old Coastguard cottage has uninterrupted sea views, and plenty of parking.
The view from the master bedroom showing the Victorian shelter with Shoalstone pool beyond.
The front of the house, showing the old coastguard insignia on the blue downpipe.
The Cottage (in the centre) is by Berry Head Country Park, area of outstanding natural beauty.
It is just above Shoalstone open-air seawater pool, and numerous rockpools - ideal for children.
The view of the back garden from the deck, looking across the sea to Paignton.
The recently redecorated living room has two large sofas, TV with Freeview, DVD, Wi-fi and bookcase.
There is a sideboard with selection of books, jigsaws, Lego and games, just in case it rains!
You may even enjoy doing the dishes with the fabulous views out to sea! Electric oven with gas hob.
The kitchen is fully equipped. Fridge with icebox, toaster, microwave, and a washing machine.
Master bedroom with bed facing the sea views. Photo taken from built-in wardrobe (also with views!)
Twin bedroom facing window and chest-of-drawers.
Twin bedroom facing double wardrobe and storage shelves

Constructive criticism..
Firstly I would charge alittle more maybe £25 per week more and provide guests with towels and bedding as this is not in with the cottage. Secondly I would put a gate between front and back garden this would be safer for dog owners maybe between the hedge and brick wall in the back garden and tie it in with the decking area. Thirdly I would tidy the downstairs toilet with lino and also the back of the house should be linoed more for hygiene reasons. Kitchen could do with afew more condiments ie, scissors. Dinning room is good also the lounge but I would think about recarpeting or strip the floor boards to make the house more hygienic and more original,(the carpet is stained with god knows what).upstairs the twin room is a nicely done but again the carpet lets it down plus 2 plug sockets just isn't enough, the double room has a lovely view and decorated nicely again only 1 plug socket, attached is a extension lead which is placed behind the bed, this is a major fault for downstairs too! There is no WiFi which in oirdays you can't afford not to have and lastly the tv in the lounge is not great to watch the quality of picture is terrible. The location is great, you are allowed dogs (which is why I think, if the owner allows pets they should really accommodate their safety. I would put a keypad lock on the door for the keys as people don't want to be knocking on ones door to be let in after their drive. Hair dryers and ironing boards with irons I think is a basic necessity therefore should be provided as I state at the start I would be willing to pay as full amount for the basics instead of 'adding on' such things, £25 extra in the price for all the above is still a reasonable price to pay. The owners are friendly and leave you to it, which is nice as some owners do keep popping round to check up on you so its nice to have a proper break away. I would like to come back to see if any of the suggestions have been done as it would make a better place

Dear Ann, thank you for your comments, and I am glad that you enjoyed it so much that you have re-booked a number of times. I will try to answer the issues which you have raised. Re linen - people who book through the website are quoted a price which includes bedlinen and towels, but many of our private guests prefer to bring their own. The kitchen is fully stocked with utensils, the iron and ironing board are kept in the living room cupboard, and the hairdryer is in the master bedroom - usually in the walk-in wardrobe. The houses are listed so I'm afraid we are not permitted to adapt the garden to separate the front and back gardens. Since your review, we have had the carpets cleaned, replaced the television, had wifi installed and had more sockets fixed in the living room. It is a traditional cottage, but we have a program of upgrades every year, so hope you will spot all the improvements!
