The cottage advertised itself as a four double bedroom cottage but the fourth bedroom was a very small double, with a very hard and uncomfortable bed. We also found that the cottage was not very clean and I had to contact the owners one month after our stay, to get out deposit back.

Owner's Response: We have always had very good reviews about the cottage and never had any complaints about the beds which were all new this year or about the cleanliness. The cottage is cleaned by a professional cleaning firm every changeover. Granted, beds are a matter of what you are used to but a mattress which is two months old is not going to be lumpy. As far as the size of the bedroom is concerned, there is a double bed, a double wardrobe, a chest of drawers and a chair in the room with plenty of room to move about so it can't be that small. On the matter of the damage deposit, we always pay it directly into the guests bank account and did so when we were told by email which account to pay it into. We did not receive this information from the guest until three weeks after the end of the holiday. The damage deposit was returned in full without any deductions. We feel that it is telling that we had not received any complaints from the guests either when they were in the cottage or after they had left.

Lovely place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent a week at Gull Cottage with our family and grandchildren. The accommodation is spacious, well equipped and ideal for large groups. The village is small but with a welcoming and warm atmosphere and a lovely set up in the village hall as a tea room with great gift shop opposite.

Close to a number of tourist attractions for children of all ages we had a lovely week and would highly recommend Gull or one of the other cottages in the area as an ideal base.

Plenty of parking on site, individual well maintained garden areas with ample seating and playing space. Well worth a visit.
