Our family had a great time in this rental. The owners supply everything that you could possibly need making it one of the nicest places we have ever rented. I believe the owners have flexible arrangements with regard to renting and allow the use of their own areas whether they are there or not. We settled in straight away and...

Management response:

Thank you. We try try to be flexible for different types of short break groups. There is a very convenient bar at the Sun Bay Hotel 3 minures away on our Inner Hope side and their terrace is excellent for sunsets, if you do not wish to walk across the beach to the pub.

My second visit to Kittiwake and hopefully not my last .I came with a friend to do Sue's crab pot willow course which is most interesting and rewarding. The accommodation at Kittiwake is just a short stroll from the beautiful Hope Cove beach, which is stunning even in the winter/spring. The self contained flat is warm and spotlessly clean with...

Management response:

Glad you enjoyed the willow workshop. I can offer homestay bed and breakfast and lunches with willow workshops. The local crab/lobster pot is a traditional willow pot made in the way local to this region. I can also offer willow baskets and plant support courses.

Ideally situated close to the beach and village, this is a lovely place to stay that we would highly recommend. Kittiwake has everything you need and Sue was very accommodating, particularly as we have a lively toddler. This is probably the most child friendly place we have stayed and Sue had everything we could possibly need, including a stair gate,...

Management response:

Thanks for the review, glad we can offer something for various age children. We hope to see you again.
