    Had a great time. And overall the cottage is very good. The one down side would be there really isn't enough easy setting for 4 adults.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for booking Kingsley Cottage, I am so pleased you had a good stay in Instow. There is a sofa and two chairs in the living room area, but I will review and see whether I should have larger chairs around the wood burner.

    Great location lovely cottage great for dog lovers.The boathouse was great for meals and Johns shop was brilliant too. Only negative was lack of parking .

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for staying at Kingsley Cottage. John's and The Boathouse are fantastic aren't they! Thank you for your message about parking on Lane End. The consequence of being located on a wonderful sandy beach is its popularity. I agree sometimes it can take a little patience to find a parking spot in Lane End, but hope you agree that being able to walk straight onto the beach, or watch all the activity on the beach from Kingsley Cottage makes up for it. We hope to see you again.

    Great place would love to stay there again. Cleaning needs more attention. Bit tricky with the parking.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Hi Maggie - thank you so much for booking Kingsley Cottage for your holiday this summer, I am delighted that you had a good holiday in Devon. Being opposite a sandy beach creates constant sand which I know my cleaning team work tirelessly to ensure the house is sand free and sparkling for each new guest! I will chat with the team and see what more we can do to. Thank you again X

    Great holiday & fabulous location. Fans in living area would have improved the overall experience Parking was stressful and reduced our activities and will be worse for those using the cottage from 1 Jul as greater restrictions come into force. Alternative parking is available at a cost of £5-12 per day ( if spaces are available) in public car parks

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for coming from the beautiful county of Kent to Devon for your holiday. Your timing was perfect, during the balmiest of summer weeks. And, when the weather is so glorious, it does mean the beaches become a magnet, everyone wants to enjoy the sand between their toes and the sunshine beaming down on them. Sorry this resulted in difficulty parking on some days during your stay. I am pleased that the car park at the Commodore has maintained their £5 a day rate, (still one of the lowest day rates in the country) when street parking is not available. Thank you for choosing to holiday in Devon.
