“Perfect place to relax!”
Reviewed 21 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

Sandcastles is wonderful! Such a relaxing break, very comfortable bungalow with a home feel about it. Amazing views of the sea from the massive conservatory. Very close to the sea! Nice to get the welcome pack including a bottle of wine, milk and bread. Dogs are made to feel welcome as well which you don't always get with holiday homes. Bowls and dog towels provided. Would definitely visit again.

“Fantastic Bungalow ”

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Sandcastles. Must say the conservatory made it, what a view - fantastic. It was so lovely waking up to the sea everyday. The location is great for the beach...Obviously . The poachers pocket pub is just a 5 min walk along the coastal path. There is a lovely quirky cafe called Sugar and Spice, also a nice walk and they allow dogs in which is great. The weather wasn't great for us but we still had an amazing time. Laura had arranged for a welcome tray that had bread, jams, t bags etc plus wine and milk in the fridge - thank you. The bungalow has everything you need to make your holiday home from home. Sammy the seal even paid us a few visits towards the end of the holiday.

Just a couple of critiques if I had to be picky...although the place is lovely and clean at first glance, when you take a closer look there were loads of cobwebs. Especially in the conservatory. Obviously this didn't affect the holiday I just got rid of them as I saw them but there was a lot. Also the shower in the en suite could do with upgrading. It's not powerful at all, the main bathroom shower is much better. Like I say this is me being picky. Overall place, view, location, surroundings, amenities all fab. Thank you Laura x

“Excellent holiday location”
Reviewed 5 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

This location gave us everything we have been looking for. Close to the beach, safe garden for the dogs, very comfy accommodation. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a dog friendly relaxing holiday by the sea.

Brilliant place to watch the sunrise each morning

Laura and her team are very friendly and efficient. We appreciate all you did to accommodate our stay.

“The most fantastic holiday home on the beach.”
Reviewed 31 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Our group was two adults, three teenagers and three dogs and we had the most fabulous stay. All we could have wanted and more thanks to the welcome pack including wine and dog towels! Attention to detail great, housekeeper lovely, facilities couldn't be faulted. Even though we didn't have great weather it was warm, cosy, on the beach for playing with the dogs and we spent hours watching the stormy sea. My idea of heaven. We even looked to rebooking while we were there but it was already really busy with many returning guests.
Highly recommend.

“Fantastic coastal property”
Reviewed 17 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We have just come back from a lovely long weekend at Sandcastles, our second stay at this bungalow. The property is well equipped with everything you will need during your stay and we were welcomed with a tray of lovely goodies but the icing on the cake has to be the magnificent uninterrupted view of the sea from the conservatory. Our days were spent mostly on the beach with direct access from the property down some steps. The property is within walking distance (15 mins) of a well stocked shop, has two pubs (10 mins walk). If you are looking for a quiet, get away from it all place, you won't be disappointed!
