Sep 2018

The property needs a general overhaul- it looks shabby chic on a very tight budget- white goods look old and tired. Extra blankets need to be provided and additional heater available for the very cold weather. Location is excellent, customers may need to know that there are no views from any aspect of the property- ground floor room only has a tiny window so quite dark. We have stayed in other fishermen’s cottages in the past and it was atmospheric and cosy. This property lacks character and warmth

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We are very sorry to hear that not everything was as you had hoped it would be, but would like to reassure you that, as discussed with you since receiving this feedback, the comments have been passed on to the owner of Avalon who is as a result replacing a number of items. We are sorry if views had been expected; this property is in the heart of Downalong, and as you quite rightly point out, does not have any views, so is certainly something to be aware of if you are wanting to stay somewhere that takes advantage of some of the lovely sea views on offer. Thanks again for getting in contact. Tanya, Customer Services

Lovely cosy cottage with nice lay out perfect for a family -close to all the beaches and the harbour. Perfect holiday home - will definitely come again.

We had a great stay at Avalon. The location is great and the property had everything we needed for a lovely holiday

Jun 2017

Avalon was spotlessley clean. Extremeley well equipped, lovely comfy beds. The location was very quiet as not on a through road, but accessible for beaches & town. Our 3yr old Grandson loved the house with the 'secret staircase' ! Had to hire a baby gate though, would be handy if one in situ. Thouroughly enjoyed our stay with great weather.
