“Absolutely perfect. We were in the area delivering a course at the local school and this ticked all the boxes. Peter's house is IMMACULATE, stylishly decorated and with lots of nice touches including fruit juice and gin in the fridge and cupboards of essentials. Will definitely stay again.”

“Gareth was a great host. He offered to come collect me from the station, which was 10+ mins drive away, which was great. His home was clean and he was very friendly and social. I enjoyed staying there for a bit, and will be back again in future. I’d definitely recommend him to other guests. Clean and simple, and quiet. A little out of town but wasn’t a problem and there is a bus. He drove me to work as well one time. Great guy.”

“Wow. We had a perfect stay from start to finish. Lorraine was there to give us a fabulously warm welcome and there was also a lovely welcome pack. The caravan has fabulous beds and luxury feel mattresses and bedding. Everything is there for you to settle in to the beautiful panoramic views with a cuppa on the balcony. A real home from home. The balcony itself does not have steps so was perfect for a 3 year old to come and go. Great touches with games, puzzles and books. We didn't turn the TV on all week even though we had teenagers and children with us. The location is superb being right next to the sea and just a few minutes walk to the beach. At the end of our stay Loraine came to say bye and check everything had been OK. What a lovely lady. Thank you Loraine and Pete for opening up your caravan we hope to be back at some point.”
