Kephalo was a wonderful place to stay. The cottage is extremely well equipped and all the bedrooms are a good size, even the single. We were a family of 6 and there was plenty of space to spread out. The location is perfect - close enough to the village and the beach but far enough away to be peaceful and quiet. And very close to some beautiful coastal walks. Nichola and Alan proved wonderful hosts. They couldn't do enough for us and were always on hand to answer any questions. We even had lovely homemade cake and scones awaiting us on arrival, which was a lovely touch. Would highly recommend.

Such a lovely cottage to relax in plenty of room and really comfortable. Great location and the garden house was a great find and a great place to chill. A lot of thought has gone in to making this a great place for people to enjoy their stay there.

August 2019

The Cottage was everything we hoped for and more. Every little detail had been catered for. We didn't need a thing. It made our holiday very relaxing and easy from the very start.It more than met our needs. The little personal touches such as the fresh flowers and delicious homemade cake and scones made us feel very welcome. As did the welcome card and introductory text from Nichola and Alan.This holiday cottage was by far the best we have ever stayed in. We will definitely be back.

We had a lovely stay during half term week in May. The house was very clean and the kitchen was equipped with everything you could think of and need. The house is very spacious with a lovely garden area. On arrival there was scones and a freshly baked cake which was amazing! There was also milk in the fridge.Just what you need if you have been on a long journey. The location was great, a 5 min walk into Beer and was a great base if you wish to visit other places around Beer. We received a seamless service from initial booking to check out. We would thorough recommend staying at Kephalo
