Just back from an amazing wedding weekend with all the family taking over Westward Living and Ocean Kave for a fabulous and memorable celebration. All of the accommodation is top class but the latest cottages are spectacular. With hot tubs and gas barbecues for each cottage, all mod cons and extra comfy beds, nothing is left to chance. The Ocean...

After revisiting I decided to leave another review. I came here last March 2016 for a long weekend and paid just under £270 we had Smilie Cottage which was more than enough for two of us with a dog. It was in an excellent condition and felt luxurious. This year we stayed in Dream Cottage end April 2017 and paid...

We needed a weekend away from the stress of life, to focus on just us as a couple... and boy did Royal Celerity help wth that! The sunshine helped to reluctantly pull us away from the cottage, which had everything we needed and more. The feeling that we were on a honeymoon, without being on a honeymoon, is just what...

We spent a weekend here away from London just to have some fresh air and to enjoy slow, relaxing days near the Atlantic Ocean. We stayed at Lara's cottage named after the owner's race horse.
