    Absolutely fabulous. Easy to find. Easy to park. Great location. Able to walk to the sea. Shops nearby. The house was amazing. Warm and comfortable everything provided for those who eat at home rather than in the many local eating places. The beds comfy. Everything was just perfect.

    This was the 4th visit to Ivy Cottage for my wife and I. We like the accommodation, the location and the friendly, helpful neighbouring caretaker. It was, however, the first time we have been in March and it corresponded to a bit of cold weather from the east. This did not stop us enjoying our walks - making sure that we had the wind on our backs.

    This property would benefit from some basic maintenance, i.e. replace condemned gas fire, repair damaged decoration in kitchen for starters. Generally the property is in need of an update/makeover. Cleaning could be improved, quite a few cobwebs about.

    Perfect house. Perfect location. Many reviewers talk about "Vera". We never saw her! We were not welcomed. We had to ask the neighbor about the key... Otherwise everything has already said.

    A lovely, spacious cottage. The children loved being about to walk to the beach and the town and local cinema were great. The cottage itself was safe, clean and convenient. No WiFi which we really enjoyed. A real switch off week. Lovely.

    We found the accommodation warm and comfortable, all the attractions we were interested in were within travelling distance and the added bonus was we had good weather, we would definitely stay there again.

    Very nice place. The house is perfect, big enough for our family with two children. The beds are very comfortable and the kitchen has everything we needed. The neighbours next door are also very nice and lovely and helped us anytime we needed something.

    Clean, homely, comfortable and well placed . The garden is a picture and there are lots of things to do in the area. Shops are just around the corner, the sea and promenade are 5 minutes walk away and if you feel like eating in there are pizza/Chinese/Indian and fish and chips delivery available. A train ride to London is within walking distance too. Vera and Colin, the people who live either side of the cottage are wonderful. Not obtrusive in any way but nice to chat to and full of advice regarding the area and what to see and even where to park. We had a great holiday.

    Overall a very nice place to stay. If you do not wish to drive the bus stops & train stations are very well located for all destinations. However the Television could do with upgrading.

    We had a wonderful time at the cottage. Vera was very helpful and friendly. The house was comfortable and clean with everything you would need for your stay. The beach and shops were all within easy walking distance and there were so many places to visit we would love to be able to return as we did not have enough time.
