The cottage consists of three bedrooms, two of which are furnished with a double bed and the other, a children’s room, with four single beds and a TV. The main bedroom has an en-suite bathroom, while the other two share the use of a full bathroom. The kitchen is fully equipped with a stove and oven, a microwave, a fridge as well as a dishwasher and laundry facilities such as a washing machine and a tumble-dryer is also available.

Parking is available in the double garage.

Having previously spent a weekend at Laughter Cottage earlier in the year, we looked forward to our Christmas break with great anticipation. However while the location is superb & the accommodation comfortable (1 less bed in the loft would make movement easier) , we felt that the facilities were woefully inadequate. The cottage advertises that it sleeps 8, which it does, but it has a fridge that is so small it barely stocks food for 4! There is no freezer which made keeping food, ice etc for 6 people a challenge. Overall the cottage is a little tired but it's location is what makes this cottag...

Overall we had a great stay and would go back. The living area was large and spacious. It in very close proximity to the beach. The local "wildlife" was a great surprise for my kids. With the amount of people that can stay at this establishment it really needs a bigger fridge and freezer.

Laughter Cottage is a compact little space but it works as I has plenty of outdoor space. The only thing lacking was the "key" to extend the awning, which is necessary because the afternoon sun beats onto the patio. Otherwise it was great.

This beautiful beach boasts magical scenery and a typical Cape West Coast feel, with a pristine stretch of whit sand, tiny shell-strewn nooks, and beautifully etched rocky areas. Swimming and diving is very popular here.
