4/5 Good

Good location and nice cottage
Very clean and ideally situated for village and beach. Unfortunately lack of communication from owner meant stress obtaining access to property. Thank goodness for help from the cleaner !!

Quiet cottage
Overall we enjoyed our stay at sunshine cottage. Check in instructions slightly misleading, as they say entry by front door, but back door keys in key safe. Cottage very clean. Quirky set up, with bathroom downstairs. The place needs a re-wire, and a better heating/ hot water system upgrade. I say that as an electrician for over 40 years. Nobody has single sockets everywhere with extension leads plugged in all over. Emersion heater kept us awake, also noisy fridge/ freezer. Heating set at wrong on / off times. Anyway moan over ! We loved the cottage, great place to stay. Everything handy within a short walk. Our dog Sam , enjoyed the garden. Overall good stay.

5/5 Excellent

The perfect dog friendly cottage
Sunshine Cottage was perfect for a trip with our two dogs. The cottage was fresh and clean and the large garden was 100% secure. Location was great with a short walk to the beach or lovely countryside. Local shops, takeaways and dog friendly bars and restaurants plus the new North Sea Observatory made for a perfect weekend. Will definitely book again.

Gorgeous UK break
This was a lovely break in a lovely spacious property. Loads of room and the garden is huge. Only a short walk to the beach. My only criticism would be that it didn’t say anywhere that we would have to pay for electricity separately. Due to Covid we were asked to take our own bedding, including duvets. This was a huge problem for us as we didn’t have enough space in the car to fit three duvets / pillows in. (There was no price reduction for this either). The advert says tea/ coffee etc provided so we didn’t take any with us, but only two tea bags were provided.
