    Fantastic family holiday place. If you love a cosy family place, near the sea, in great grounds then this is the place for you. you could argue it needs a little of modernising, but had everything that was needed.

    This is a lovely cottage in a beautiful location. The owner is friendly and helpful. If you want perfection in terms of power showers and up to date kitchenware this cottage is not for you. However, if you want lots of lovely thoughtful touches like flowers, cake, jam and little thoughtful touches such as tissues and excellent storage in the bathroom, bedroom, sitting room and kitchen you will love it. We found it more comfortable than other more newly modernised cottages because the small details like good lighting by the bed and convenient power sockets added to our comfort. There is no specific garden area designated to the cottage, but our dog was able to go out into the garden alone without mishap. The garden is a delight. In March the wild primroses and clusters of daffodils cheered us up and the frequent visits from garden birds added to our enjoyment. The sea view is obscured by trees, but without that shelter the garden would not be possible. The views over the countryside around the cottage are stunning.

    Another lovely week at Monks Thatch. This is a very comfortable and well equipped place for a holiday and it is wonderfully quiet and peaceful. It has so much character and it is the best “dog friendly” place we have stayed in. Sally and Geoff are so welcoming and we do thank them for sharing their lovely home and garden with us. It is so rare to find somewhere as good as this where we can bring our dog. The surrounding area is absolutely beautiful, we really love coming here.

    Very picturesque cottage surrounded by beautiful gardens and in a tranquil location. Fairly isolated at the end of a narrow lane but this adds to its attraction. The very friendly owners live next door and provided a welcome box of essentials to help us settle in. When we stayed the weather was extremely hot but the temperature inside cottage remain comfortable, perhaps due to the thick walls and thatch. We didn't have chance to try the very appealing pool due to circumstance. The cottage itself was very spacious and comfortable although perhaps some of the kitchen ware could do with updating. This did not prevent us from enjoying our time there. The cottage is in such an ideal location for as quiet a holiday as you may want or need.

    The cottage provided everything we needed and was in a very attractive garden. Easy access to the coast path for the energetic. Mrs Burton was welcoming and helpful.

    We had a lovely wecome from the owner and lots of goodies in cluding fresh milk, butter, eggs, bread, chocolates, homemade cake and even some biscuits for our dog!! The cottage was very comfortable and had everything we needed. We were so lucky with the weather and made good use of the pool. The countryside was beautiful. We would recommend it.
