"Stunning Place" GARY MERCER (BEACH HUT 1) | stayed on 2022-09

Another fantastic stay in Beach Hut 1 in our favourite holiday Village. Shaldon itself is such a beautiful place and the people around are so friendly too. The gate from the patio leads you onto the beach and the Cafe / Restaurant next door is excellent too!! Can’t wait to return next year!!

"Beach Hut 1" SHARON (BRISTOL) | stayed on 2022-10

What an amazing place to stay…..the view from the patio area is lovely as you are basically nearly on the beach and it’s so relaxing to just sit there and watch the world go by. The beach hut itself is very well equipped with some lovely touches and spotlessly clean. The underfloor heating worked well as the nights got a bit chilly and made it very cosy. The cafe next door was excellent and obviously very convenient. Can’t wait to come back sometime soon!

"Perfect!!" NICOLA (WARRINGTON ) | stayed on 2022-10

We have just returned from a three night break. We absolutely loved this cutie beach hut. We have nothing negative to say at all , the word PERFECT sums it up. We will be most definitely be returning . Thank you
