I have stayed in numerous properties through your agency, but the Bolt Holt has been my favorite! What a wonderful property - full of character and there were so many little touches that made our stay so comfortable. I truly loved having the fire in the kitchen. It was lovely to unwind at the end of the day with a delicious dinner, glass of wine and a fire!

Amy Bawden

My wife & I were invited to stay in this wonderful quaint fisherman's cottage. Nothing has been spoilt by the new decorating or the adding of "nik naks" & original painting. Even the "mod cons" blend in well with the décor. Extemely comfortable furnishings a credit to the owners. A short walk & you are a the sea front. we will go back.
