We hope you have a wonderful holiday staying in our holiday cottages. To make things easier while planning your holiday and while you are here, we have put together information which we hope will be useful. For all attractions, restaurants etc we have included notes on accessibility (useful for wheelchair users and parents with buggies), the phone number (T), posctcode for SatNav (SN) and website address (W), to make booking and finding the places easier. You can access these either from the dropdown menu, or from the links below
This includes information you need to know about our site, and also important information on where to find doctors, dentists, hospitals, taxis, ATMs, places of worship (of most major religions), and other useful stuff!
This should help with the packing, as it tells you what to expect in your cottage when you arrive.
Useful information on stuff we can provide you with (e.g. portable induction loop or hypoallergenic bedding) and useful links to websites with comprehensive accessibility information.
We aim to make our business as sustainable as possible. These days “green” and “luxury” can go hand in hand. You’ll find information here on our sustainability policies, our biomass boiler, and some of the local wildlife.
All our holiday cottages have their own hot tub, which sits on a deck and is covered by a gazebo Please look at this page to read about the high-tech features of these quality Shoreline hot tubs and a few DOs and DONTs to adhere to.
Guest feedback and reviews are really useful, both to prospective guests (to make sure we do what we say on the tin) and to us, so we can continue to improve our offer. All are independent reviews from real guests who have stayed with us. They come from 3 different sources – UpFront Reviews, MyCottageHoliday, and TripAdvisor.
Pubs & Restaurants
A wide range of eateries and drinking holes, from fine dining to pub grub. There are access notes on each – useful if you are a wheelchair user and need to know which ones don’t have accessible loos (which may limit the beer consumption somewhat!).
Spa & Swim
we offer our guests complimentary membership to the China Fleet Country Club, and there are other options for spa and swimming – details can be found here.

Outlines our cancellation policy, and (highly) recommends you take out insurance to cover you in the event of a cancellation. There is also a link to a company that specialises in insurance for UK holidays (we have no commercial relationship with this provider, and other providers are available, but they seem to offer very reasonable rates, and we thought it might be useful as a starting point).
Do also have a look at our Pinterest boards, which show most of these things to do on a map.
