Karen, September 2019

“Received really warm welcome to a lovely, comfortable & well equipped cottage. Nothing was too much trouble for Jan & Alan. Well situated for exploring East & West & lovely beach within walking distance. Thoroughly recommend.”

Barbara, August 2019

“We enjoyed our holiday in the cottage, which was spotless on arrival and we were welcomed by the owner, who lives next door. A dog bed, bowls and treats were left for the dogs, saving us having to bring them with us. The enclosed garden was a bonus. Tea, coffee etc was provided. There was lots to explore in the area, but unfortunately we had to leave early due to me having unexpected sciatica, meaning I couldn’t walk far. WE would definitely use the cottage again.”

Margaret, July 2019

“We had a wonderful stay at Gladstone Cottage. Lots of lovely places to visit around the area, and the Owners were so friendly and welcoming. The cottage was beautiful, clean and tidy. All the equipment provided in the cottage met our needs. We would highly recommend Gladstone Cottage.”
