    We wanted a quiet and relaxing holiday so the boathouse was a perfect location. It was great to walk out the front door and be in the sea in less than 5 minutes. The kitchen had everything we needed and the bathrooms were very luxurious. Faster internet would have been helpful for the wet weather days but still, didn't mar our holiday

    LOVELY BOATHOUSE, MUCH BETTER THAN OUR LAST VISIT; CLEANER BUT MOST OF THE CROCKERY WAS DIRTY, AS WAS THE KITCHEN SINK. THE EN-SUITE TO THE DOUBLE BEDROOM IS NEVER DRY, IT REALLY NEEDS A MORE EFFICIENT EXTRACTOR FAN, THE ONLY WAY TO CLEAR THE BATHROOM IS TO LEAVE THE DOOR OPEN WHICH THEN MAKES THE BEDROOM DAMP. WE WERE BLESSED WITH BEAUTIFUL WEATHER WHICH IS ALWAYS A BONUS. THE OWNER OF UPSTAIRS/NEXT DOOR IS PLANNING TO RENT OUT AGAIN, SO MAYBE IT WON'T BE THE PEACEFUL QUIET RETREAT THAT IT IS NOW, AS IT SLEEPS 7 PEOPLE, AND SO THERE IS A POSSIBILITY THAT WE MAY NOT GO BACK
