This is a perfect spot for walkers, dog lovers, bird watchers, or for just sitting in the hot tub watching the waves roll in on the coast below. I would highly recommend it.
Just spent another amazing weekend at the Beach Hut at Carswell Farm. The location is unbelievable, waves crashing on the rocks right outside the window, hot tub view to die for and the quaintest little stone hut to stay in. On top of all this total isolation and plenty of wildlife to watch. What more could you want? Will be back again soon
Just returned from a wonderful week at The Lodge, one of the eco properties in the Carswell Cottages collection.
We were so pleased that it lived up to the website. The owners were very helpful from the initial booking enquiries to the welcome note and visit to sort out a couple of technical hitches we had with the DVD!
The property itself is charming, modern but sympathetically designed to complement its surroundings. Whilst we didn't need to use the woodburner, I am sure it would have been very cosy. Despite a mixed bag of weather however, we found the property to be easy to keep warm or ventilate and was bright, light and charmingly constructed, especially with the windows allowing such lovely views.
The outside area - garden, patio and play area in the meadow were all beautiful and made a very relaxing space to chill out in post days out!
The owners have thought about every little thing you could want and it really was a home from home....in fact you will want to take it home with you...or maybe move in permanently!
We were pleasantly woken every morning by the cows in the valley, although quite noisy (in a nice way), they soon became part of our routine.
The local beaches recommended in the welcome folder were stunning...a true slice of unspoilt Devon. There was so much to enjoy we wished we had booked longer...thank you!
Ps there are lots of nice eco touches such as offering hampers from local organic suppliers, using eco products, encouraging recycling and the use of fabric shopping bags as well as, of course, the building itself.
We had a wonderful stay at Crofters Cottage. The cottage itself was just beautiful. We enjoyed the incredible views, lazy breakfasts on the terrace, long walks by the coast and the fantastic hot tub - the perfect place to escape!
We stayed at the Beach Hut and the weekend was the best we have had in a long time, if ever. We couldn't of asked for more. We love the whole secluded atmosphere with no electricity and internet to get away from the technological world for a few days was heaven.
Walks around the area were great, and to get back to the hut after a hike and have the beach to ourselves was the best experience.
Hot-tub, log burner were a great benefit as we stayed at the start of April which came with the nice sunny days but ever so slightly chilly in the evening, the log-burner came in handy and soon heated the hut up in no time.
The Hot-tub was amazing to use whilst looking up at the clear starlit skies, and I would like to say this experience was enlightened furthermore as the light pollution was very very low, allowing for the stars to shine in all their glory.
We were able to make use of the BBQ on two occasions which was very handy, it is a purpose built BBQ that can be used whilst looking out on the fantastic cove with a dining area to allow for outside seating. The Hut was well equipped for all that we needed and felt like our own little beach hut whilst we were there. We really couldn't fault the stay one bit, and now we have great memories from such a great weekend.
We can't thank you enough for making our weekend the best ever.!
We we be back.!
