What a find! Will definately be back. Great views, and lovely accomodation. Great attention to detail in everything.
We took full advantage of the meals which were all of very high quality. Can't fault anything and have recommended it to family and friends.

I have visited Lynda and Jeremy's fabulous farm over the past few years and the experience only gets better. Having found such a diamond of a place, I shall continue to escape to it from time to time to relax and recuperate. The combination of luxury and cleanliness in such a beautiful location is always a delight. The hosts work tirelessly to make their visitors feel welcomed and relaxed, nothing seems too much trouble for them. The Spa offers a wonderful range of treatments (and treats!), and of course the location provides the ideal setting for walking and beachcombing. If you are looking for the perfect getaway then you'll not find a better place. Eleven out of ten in every respect.

This is our fourth stay at Downe Cottages but our first in Ivy cottage which was wonderful. The first floor living area is spacious with stunning views. Our friends stayed in Jasmine Cottage which is also beautiful and well equipped.The living area in Ivy was perfect for us all to relax after a busy day.
Our children love coming to Downe cottages as much as us and would happily come back year after year.
Jeremy and Lynda Roe are perfect hosts and their attention to detail is second to none.
I can honestly not think of one criticism but I know that if I did raise any concerns, Jeremy and Lynda would waste no time in putting it right.

This is a truly relaxing place to stay.
There are, if you wish there are miles of costal walks if you want exercise.
The cottages are truly comfortable & everything is thought of in them, the treatments are amazing albeit rather expensive but I do have to admit that you do get a wonderful service & a truly relaxing stay that you will not forget.
