    "The reason we stayed at this cottage for the week was to visit our daughter, son-in-law and grandson so this was not exactly a holiday as such. For the quality of the cottage it was an excellent price, which I must admit was the main reason for originally booking. It was very clean and well appointed for a holiday cottage considering the number of cottages we have stayed in the past. We had a pleasant welcome and were grateful for the complimentary cake, fruit and apple juice that welcomed us.It is also handy that a comprehensively stocked farm shop is adjacent to the cottageIt was so handy that the cottage is a dog friendly. However, it would be handy if there was a gate in the opening to the back garden so I didn't have to worry about her running off.A minor criticism was that there was no handle to close the shower room door, some of the bulbs had blown and for me, the quilt on the single bed was far too thick. It's probably a personal thing as I've never been keen on quilts anyway.I think they undersell themselves that it is not made clear that towels are included in the price.I would definitely recommend this cottage to my friends if they happened to need accommodation in this area."

    "We really enjoyed our stay at S18114. It was well appointed and situated in a beautiful area. My grand-daughter and I spent time raspberry picking which was great fun.The farm shop next door was extremely handy and the local produce was of a very high standard.The information book was very useful, as were the many leaflets of attractions within easy reach of S18114.One thing which would prevent us returning is the wooden flooring through the hall and lounge. Apart from the fact that our dog found it difficult to walk on (he kept sliding when trying to get up etc) his noisy 'clattering' on it was very annoying.The facilities within the house were excellent - washing machine (although I would have expected a washing basket for taking wet clothes to the washing line - however, we managed), dishwasher, toaster etc. I couldn't find any egg-cups which I mentioned to the owner when we left. Also the storage heaters were blisteringly hot to the touch. We turned all the heaters off because the weather was so warm, but I suggested to the owner that perhaps warning notices be placed over the heaters."

    "We arrived as a young family of four, to a warm clean house. We were surprised at just how big it was. It soon became apparent that the heating was on a timer and most of the rooms were really chilly, so we had to wear coats. On contacting the owner, they arrived at the house within an hour to amend the issue. Which we were surprised at how quickly they had come to help us. So we were very grateful. The house is in need of some maintenance, but nothing that can spoil your stay. You have all the kitchen equipment that you can need, and the views are stunning, Even In cold February, we went onto the beach , which is directly opposite, every day! Either walking to Clacton Town Centre, or to the Pier, which only takes 20 mins. It was a lovely fresh walk. It was as pleasure to stay somewhere, that you didn't have to use your car to get around. We did not travel far, but even walked to the Town Centre at night time, with young children for a lovely evening meal, in the various restaurants there. It was a lovely stay and We would definatley come back again next year."

    "A large property in a very enviable position. Ideal for a beach holiday with fantastic sea views and close enough to the town centre for all the amenities you require. There's plenty of space for larger families and the house is well presented. On the down side, was surprised to find no information is provided regarding the equipment, facilities or useful contact or location details for local services and GP etc. Also no guest book to enable feedback . Traffic noise during the day is quite obvious and the sealed glazing units at front have failed and therefore hold condensation. Some of the provided towels were also badly stained. We also found out, on arrival, the beach area is currently being rejuvenated and is closed to the general public in Clacton. If you want the beach you need to travel further along the front to gain access. The work is also being carried out around the clock and rocks are being delivered onto shore through the night."

    "The accommodation itself was basic but generally clean and comfortable . The patio/ rear outside area was covered in bird droppings and not conducive to sitting outside/eating. possibly unhealthy. The end of the paved area was being used as a dump for old concrete and soil and someone had dumped old chicken bones which could have been harmful for our dog At the front a soil pipe for the associated house was leaking raw sewage. Car parking was confined. The preliminary information said the accommodation was 50 yds from the beach . Although true it did not say that the beaches were closed due to long term renovation work and also dogs are not allowed anyway. This was a big disappointment but we found good dog beach walks at Frinton and Walton on the Naze and south Clackton.It is a pity that the outside of the property was so neglected as a little attention could have given it a much higher rating"
