      There are two things that I would change wrt the accommodation. First of all I found the basins in the bathrooms uncomfortable to use. It is impossible to wash your face and also awkward to brush your teeth because of the tap.Secondly I would change the hanging baskets on the veranda to comfortable chairs/loungers but other than that it was a wonderful weekend

      Loved the home, the décor & the cleanliness, Just felt that the living/recreation/reception/relaxation area/s is/are too small should the place be fully occupied! Was just enough for 4 of us. More people & it would be claustrophobic. Enjoyed every moment of my stay.though!Oh and the pathway/driveway is certainly not functional. Pretty, but not functional.

      Don't look anywhere else to stay. This house is the perfect setting for relaxing holiday, whilst close to visiting "dorpies" around the area.

      We had such a lovely stay at Cockleshell, the kids had an absolute ball on the quiet beach and the weather was unbelievable. What a great little spot :)
