We have just returned from the most relaxing week at Monks Thatch, our host was so lovely and the cottage was absolutely perfect, the pool area was a bonus, some more comfortable seating around the pool would be great though. We didn’t want to leave to come home, the walks around the cottage are breathtaking.

One of the best locations, at the end of a no through lane, with a track to the beach. The swimming pool was much loved and secluded from the rest of the grounds, which are extensive. There is an area where you can sit and have a meal, with a view of the sea. I must say that the track to the beach was okay going, but hard work getting back up, especially if you have mobility issues. The basic cleanliness was good, but the deep cleaning needed to be better. Everything else was good. The cottage itself was beautiful.❤. Location 10/10.❤

Having stayed here on 4 occasions now we were surprised that the overall condition and equipment has not been upgraded for at least 6 years. For the amount it cost us and then to be issued with an electric bill at the end of our stay was very hard to swallow. Also, not to be allowed in until after 5 pm and having to vacate before 9am mean that you lose a whole day of your holiday. These timings need to be reviewed. That gives the cleaners 8 hours to prepare.?? The swimming pool also was not available, though I believe you have to book that in advance should you want to use it. Overall, for the cost, Very Disappointing. Regret to say, won’t be going back again.
