    This was a lovely cottage but our stay was spoilt by extremely uncomfortable and worn mattresses. Even with all the duvets from four beds and our sheets filling the dips, we were so uncomfortable we went home early. The frying pans and oven pans were dirty and worn-thankfully tin foil was supplied. We would love to return if these problems were resolved.

    An excellent, well equipped cottage in a super location - could not get any closer to the beach. Nicely situated in a quieter part of the Cornish coast away from the crowds. Would highly recommend.

    Excellent, feels like a home rather than a holiday home. Local facilities limited; good corner shop, but pub is closed and the restaurant too expensive for regular meals. You can walk along the beach to Seaton, but not much there. However, it is ideal for a getaway. Only 4 hours driving from Surrey, go round the M4 rather than the A303.

    It was probably our 17th stay at the cottage, so that says it all!

    This was the third time we had been to this cottage and it never ever disappoints. Although Downderry is a fairly small village it is within easy striking distance of all sorts of places, be they beaches, shops, National Trust or English Heritage. Perfect area for any age group with the cottage being the most ideal base. We will almost certainly be back

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Coastguard Cottage, especially the sea views from the garden and having easy access to the beach. The cottage itself is very well equipped and perfect for our family holiday. We hope to visit again in the future!

    The cottage is lovely, and the walk along the beach to Seaton is great although you can be cut off when the tide is high. Although we have stayed in the cottage next door number 3 we did find this year that the house wasn't that clean with dust cobwebs and spiders that had been there for some time. The house is fully equipped with everything you need and we love it. we would recommend these cottages to anyone its like a second home to our family.
