This was our first time staying at Brea view cottage and we loved it. Our sons aged 8 and 5 loved being right on the beach (and the Jacuzzi bath) but be aware that you cannot swim in the sea here due to it being far too muddy and sinking. The bungalow has everything provided from the ironing board, iron, hairdryer, bed linen, washing machine, tumble dryer, microwave, under counter freezer, separate fridge, dishwasher, oven, hob, toaster, oven gloves, pots and pans, baking trays, cooking utensils, buckets and spades, and of course the kitchen sink! (We've stayed in many self catering places before and had to take our own cooking things so it was nice to have everything there).
The garden is on a split level with a patio and lawn directly behind the cottage and then down a few steps is the gravel area with a picnic bench, the bbq area/chimney and the steps down to the beach through the private gate. The front and rear gardens are enclosed/gated so young children and small dogs can be kept in.
From the bungalow you can see Brean Down which you can walk up and around - the boys loved looking around the old military fort at the far end and there is a café and toilets at the bottom (There are steep steps up the side of the hill or a steep track a little further down to get up there).
The bungalow is away from the touristy part of the area but is still within good walking distance to the village shop and tourist attractions. Weston super mare's Grand Pier is visible from the kitchen window and is only a 15 minute drive away along with an Asda supermarket, McDonalds, and other stores on a retail park and in the other direction about 10 minutes drive there is a Tesco. Cheddar Gorge is only about 18 miles away and worth a visit and there are plenty of other attractions close by in the area as well. Will definitely return for another visit and recommend.
