Lovely detached cottage near to beach and shops

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time my husband and I have used owners direct and we found this lovely pet friendly cottage perfect for our needs, and perfect it was. We were amazed at the size of the garden, which is actually 4 times larger than our own, so you can imagine how our 2 border collies Felt! They absolutely loved it and being so close to the beach and shops, not to mention, just 10 minutes from Skegness.. We were in our element, so much so we have now booked for next year. It was clean, in fact Superb in everyway, can't wait to return next summer. Thank you

Beautiful, clean accommodation. Stunning garden! Set in a lovely, quiet location but not too far from the amenities. Just a bus ride to Ingoldmells and Skegness. Would highly recommend.

Very poor both cleanliness and furniture.

  • 2 of 5

We found the property to be very poor in the amount of cleanliness. The cupboard and drawers in the kitchen need a thorough clean, the microwave and oven were both filthy. There was cob webs in every room. The two piece suite in the living room is filthy and the cushions did'nt even fit properly so totally uncomfortable. Non of the curtains are hung properly with hooks missing and could'nt be pulled properly. The beds were overused and had mattress toppers but were really uncomfortable being lumpy and the sheets had hairs on them!. The upstairs bathroom smelt absolutely foul at night for some reason. Maybe something to do with the cupboard housing the water tank which came on at night. And the bathroom downstairs had a couple of weeds growing up the side of the bath. Just to make things even worse somebody came into the back garden and cut the lawn when we was out one day. There was notes to ask us to put the bins in and out for the dustmen. Some body also put these out when we was out one day. And we was expected to top the electric up also. After paying what we think is a quite high price for this type of property and time of year i think this is a damn cheek. We was not sent the address so we had to contact the owner on the day of our holiday. So all in all not a very enjoyable holiday holiday. To be totally honest a very big disappointment.

Regards

Mrs Wendy Whittle

Owner's Response: Thank you for writing a review and I'm sorry that you did'nt enjoy your stay. I am extremely surprised by your comments and its a real shame that you did'nt either inform us at the time of your arrival so we can put these things right for you or at least have taken photos of the issues, as my housekeepers are extremely proud of their work and have very high standards, so i find this news very difficult to believe to say the least, especially as its been in full holiday occupation all summer and not one guest has ever mentioned this, even the 2 guests the week previous. with regard to the grass being cut, this has to be done, otherwise you would complain about the grass being too long, and as you don't want to be disturbed during your holiday, we kindly ask you to put the bins out, so that they get emptied and cleaned. this was all in the pre information pack that you received 8 weeks before you arrived, so again you should have notified us if you did'nt want to put the bins out, which does'nt seem to cause other guests any problems. As always, i will look into your issues very firmly and i can re assure anyone reading this that we do pride ourselves on providing a nice holiday home for guests to enjoy and this is one of the main reasons why this holiday home has become so popular with so many regulars constantly returning over the years.

Lovely comfortable spacious property.

  • 5 of 5

We booked fairly late looking for a week by the sea and was really impressed with our property find. After booking the info pack sent via e-mail was brilliant telling you all aspects of the holiday and was very useful. The cottage itself was very spacious and very much like a home from home with brilliant large rear garden with a fenced of pond and loads of seating for outside dining, inside you couldn't ask for more well equipped kitchen comfy sofas in the lounge and a great tv for those comfy nights in. Its location was just tucked away off the main street so quiet but only a few minutes walk down into the village with its small amount of shops and food outlets with the expansive beach just a few hundreds yards further on. A short drive too to the bigger resorts of Skegness / Ingoldmells and Sutton on Sea / Mablethorpe to the north all worth a visit too. All in all a great week and a great property which we wouldn't hesitate to stay in again when next visiting the area.

A great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay in Sunshine Cottage. It was ideal for us with two dogs. The cottage had everything we needed aswell as a large secure garden. It was very clean and well equipped. It's in an ideal, quiet location but within walking distance of the beach and all the attractions of a seaside holiday. We had good weather, a good seaside resort that is very dog friendly and a great holiday home. We really enjoyed it and would recommend it to friends and family.
