Lovely location and house. Great for a big family get together. Lots of space. We can’t wait to rebook.

Amazing views!

Although the property is true to the photos, in reality it feels quite tired and in need of an overhaul for a property of what should be an exceptional quality.

Thank you for sharing your review. The property has had a busy season and the owners will be prioritising the maintenance necessary over the winter months. We are pleased that you felt the photos were a true reflection, and hope you had a good stay overall. Sarah R, Customer Support

None of us wanted to leave this beautiful property ! The location is outstanding - you can see the beach and the waves from the main living area wherever you are , and the upstairs large sheltered balcony area c and the outside space is well designed too. The open plan kitchen superbly well equipped - the whole house is high spec and very light and spacious . We would love to stay here again.

Our stay at Challadene was everything we had hoped for and more, the properties were excellent, clean and well equipped the outside space was also great for relaxing, eating and admiring the view. The location is simply superb with easy access to the lovely beach and great walks. With a fish and chip shop, a bar and a shop all close by we wanted for nothing during our stay and did not drive anywhere throughout our weeks stay. Simply a very special holiday!

The main house is well equipped and it is in a good location. However some of the beds are a disaster and the "annexe" should not be used until some major issues are resolved.

Challadene is a beautiful home with adjoining caravan to accommodate ten people comfortably.Spacious,light and airy accommadation with the most spectacular sea views no matter what the weather. It was a family members 18th birthday and Classic Cottages laid on balloons and banners,scones and jam,bottle of fizz and chocolates for our arrival,amazing!Great location if you want views,walks,seclusion and being a 2 minute walk from the beach,you couldn't ask for more.The only problem is nearest supermarket 20 mins drive away down very narrow lanes!Fryer tucks takeaway was the only decent place to eat on the beach.

Thanks so much for your lovely review. We were delighted to be able to help with some extra special preparations for your family member's 18th birthday and hope she enjoyed her celebrations. We agree, Challadene is in a really great location for spectacular views of the sea and proximity to the beach - you really couldn't ask for more. Once you've stocked up on your holiday goodies, you would never have the need to leave! We so hope to welcome you back again in the future. Kelsey, Customer Support

Absolutely spectacular location. The main house is beautiful and very well equipped. The annex is basic but perfectly comfortable.

Thanks so much for letting us know how enjoyable your stay was at Challadene. We're thrilled that you loved the property and the stunning setting. We hope to welcome you back soon. Julie, Customer Support

If you want a great view and fantastic local walks but are happy not to have a comfortable bed or comfy sofa to relax in after your walk this is the property for you!

Reply from Classic Cottages

It's great to see that you enjoyed the views and location, but we're sorry that you didn't find the bed and sofa were to your taste. It's always very difficult to meet every preference in terms of support and softness, but we did visit following your stay and the team felt that the sofa and mattresses were comfortable and suitable for the house. Nevertheless we are really grateful for you feeding back your thoughts, and thank you for your review. Tanya, Customer Support

We were disappointed in our holiday cottage on this occasion for the reasons above. We feel we were overcharged on this holiday by about £300/400 even with our discount for two people and out of season. We have in the past enjoyed holidays with Classic Cottages considering them to be good value for money but not this one.

Reply from Classic Cottages

Thanks so much for sharing your review and we're sorry that you felt the property should have been priced differently. The discount you received is sometimes available at specfied times for parties of six or less and represents a significant reduction in cost to give a very competitive price per guest - we feel it's still very good value even if just two guests choose to stay. We are however very grateful for you giving such honest feedback and will share your thoughts with the owner and the property team. Tanya, Customer Support

Great location, superb views and a very comfortable modern house

A weeks stay for 9 adults aged 19+, this was an ideal house that easily facilitated all of us with use of the annex. Located in a beautiful area, gorgeous views, ease of access to beach which is excellent, very well stocked kitchen (utensils and similar). Nicely decorated, Enjoyed kayaking, walking and visiting some local towns/villages but the beach access is the main aspect of this house. The outside area is great for relaxing and dining plus the external shower is perfect for washing down before entering the house. Enjoyed the amazing views from the balcony and outside area. A lovely week for all including grandparents and we would highly recommend a stay here.

Heavenly location, really well equipped and really tastefully decorated with beautiful furniture.
