"Location was amazing as were the facilities in the house and garden. There is lots of space in the house to accommodate adults and children without ever feeling everyone is on top of each other. The proximity to the beach is great and the fact there is very little traffic means it’s pretty safe too."

"The house is really spacious. The living area easily accommodated our party of ten. The kitchen was really well equipped and the bedrooms a good size and it was beautifully decorated throughout. The trampoline in the garden was a particular hit. Both Keepers Cottages and the housekeeper were extremely helpful and replied promptly to any query we had."

"My friends and I had a fantastic stay in Kingsdown at Downs Cottage. Amazing cottage that is both stylish and comfortable, would love to go back. Loved the sound system and the lights, the cooker that steamed our rib of beef and the amazing decor. Managed to swim in the sea for @ 30 seconds then ran back to the house to get warm. Thanks again"

Polly Swain, Apr 2022

"We enjoyed our stay at Downs Cottage so much. The rooms are so spacious, the beds super comfortable and the location was just incredible. Waking up to a sea view every day was such a treat. Thank you for having us."
