Recent reviews

“Thanks again for your friendly ‘sea-side’ cottage. Brilliant for the family overflow! Much appreciated your child safety improvements since our last stay (Oct 2015) with the added stairgates and boarded-in landing our toddler couldn’t escape. Your attention to detail and visitors comments are to be admired. Thanks Lucy and Jane. Must mention the beautiful, carefully planted window boxes and tubs as a visual treat. See you again Waterlily Cottage.”
