Firstly let me start by saying overall this is a great chalet , however it's quite expensive so I was expecting better and very disappointed to find the following ;
•Other people hairs blocking the shower so water wouldn't drain - had to clean out ourselves as quicker than calling owner .
•Very poor directions , if you go familiarise yourself in depth .
•No dishwasher tablets or washing powder . Obviously an owner doesn't have to leave these but at this price you kind of expect the little details to be taken care of ? Little details make all the difference .
We would of brought some of our own if we'd known , it was a pain buying this .
•Shower temperature kept fluctuating massively , very annoying especially for autistic boy with major sensitivity issues .
•Curtain rail on right hand side of television fell on sons head as not screwed on .
However overall it is a super nice chalet , and an amazing area . I highly recommend a walk to golden cap and the farm for a nice Lunch .
If the owner could get the attention to detail better it'd be worthy of a 4 or 5 star . Regrettably I have to rate as 2 due to the above .
My brother and I took my mum for a last minute few days away for Mothering Sunday to revisit some of the places we used to visit when we were kids on holiday in West Bay. This place was absolutely perfect!
Mum's mobility isn't great so the layout of the chalet presented no problems with no steps (other than a small threshold at the front door) an open plan layout with large door frames and a very accessible large shower. Kim, the owner, was very helpful, reassuring me about access before we booked and responds very quickly to messages which was greatly appreciated.
The chalet was clean, bright and modern without being too modern so should appeal to everyone. As for the facilities, we couldn't have wanted for anything with a fully equipped kitchen, comfortable beds, spare linen for the sofa bed easily found and 2 x 2 seater sofas. To be honest it was like living in someone's house. Sometimes in SC accommodation there's the basics only and none of the little things so no salt, washing up liquid etc etc but there was literally everything here!
Finally, the location is absolutely stunning and a great base for our trip but also was a beautiful, peaceful place just to sit and while away the time with a book and a cuppa. We will definitely be back with the rest of our family!
Thank you Kim
We enjoyed a lovely long weekend break here in February and were delighted with the chalet. It was much bigger than we were expecting (the photos don't do it justice), the decor was lovely, it was equipped with everything we needed and the location is just perfect. Such a treat to be able to amble down to the beach in just a couple of minutes. West Bay is really close, and Lyme Regis a short drive. So much more we'd have liked to see, but not enough time. I'd very happily come back here. NB. we were a group of 2 couples with 3 small dogs and there was plenty of room.
We spent ten days in this lovely chalet. It is as pretty as the pictures let you hope, lovingly decorated and well equipped. The location is stunning, We enjoyed cliff walks, watching rabbits, walking along the beach and many trips. In an hours drive in various directions there is so much to see, that you could easily spend three weeks there.....and if you're a Broadchurch fan, quite a few scenes were filmed just across the field and on the beach !!
Kim is a very helpful host and answered all our questions promptly and in great detail, which made the planning so much easier, so thank you very much!
It's true, that the roads to Eype are narrow and adventurous to navigate, but that' s just it, it's an adventure. We never had a problem getting through, and there are easily enough lay byes. By the end of our stay, we felt quite local ;-).
It was the perfect locations for us, as I could show my German kids and husband the lovely English countryside I love and we created lasting holiday memories.
