We stayed at 3 Gabberwell for five days over Christmas and it was absolutely perfect. We wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone and think it's the best in the village by far! The king size bed was super comfortable. The children adored their bedroom with bunting as well as the little playroom upstairs in the attic. The house is set up...

Management response:

Many thanks for your kind and positive review of 3 Gabberwell Cottages. We are really pleased that you had a wonderful Christmas break, and that you found the house to be set up really well for families and children.

We really appreciated the very attractive décor, soft colours and pretty fabrics/linen, not to mention the thoughtful welcome tray, super comfortable beds and the very effective wood-burner. It was the perfect stay and the perfect location for a much needed break. We would really like to visit again!

Management response:

Thank you very much for your review. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay and we look forward very much to you visiting us again in the future! Thank you again. John and Penny

Super equipped cottage. Very efficient booking process and excellent communication with owners. Had a lovely weeks holiday. Ideal location for walking which suited our two Dogs and kids! Also short drives to other beaches. Narrow roads in and out of the village took a little getting used to but hardly saw a car on them.

Management response:

We're really pleased you had a lovely weeks holiday, and that you found the location was ideal for family and your pets! It's really kind of you to write a review, thank you so much. Hope you may visit again one day! John and Penny
