“the location was brilliant and the local restaurants were excellent” Oct 2014
It was great thanks (and we found it without any difficulty so thanks for that too). I think we found everything we needed at the house, the beds were really comfortable (not that this is something we normally worry about but they really were appreciably more comfortable than other places we’ve stayed!), the location was brilliant and the local restaurants were excellent… We’re even considering a return trip with the rest of the family next year. Cheers, Alex
“We really enjoyed our holidays” Aug 2014
We really enjoyed our holidays. The house is very nice and comfortable. We had several day trips and visited friends at theirs. The beach was very nice – no day it looks like another. Silke

“had a great time” Feb 2014
We had a great stay at Kittiwake, thanks. The house was great and its a fantastic location. We didn’t get a lot of rain but there was plenty of wind blowing in from the sea but didn’t stop us using the beach. Mike
“Would definitely book again” Nov 2013
Kittiwake was brilliant. Seriously, everything was there, nice and warm. Ladies just stocking fridge as I arrived, really welcoming. Couple of issues (bathroom radiator not working), and I rang the contact number and a guy was out within half an hour – courteous, helpful and sorted problem. Comfy bed – Plenty of linen. I didn’t even need to use the pillow I brought with me, as the ones in the house were great. And that is high praise coming from me 🙂 Beach fantastic for us and the dog. Would definitely book again.
