Our family holidayed at Shipload Cottage for the second time last week (July/August) and we all (4 adults, a 6 year old and a small baby) had a fabulous time. The cottage is in a lovely location and is spotlessly clean as well as containing anything you could possibly need. We were welcomed by Martin who was extremely helpful and for whom nothing was too much trouble. A perfect week and we would definitely recommend a visit.
The cottage certainly lived up to expectations and more. It had all we needed to enjoy a great week's holiday. The welcome pack on arrival was very much appreciated. The location is great and we did not have to travel far in what was a heatwave to enjoy beaches, woods and other interesting places.
