Holiday property description

The surrounding area is teeming with an array of wildlife and is a 'Twitchers' paradise. There is much to see and do in the area and, apart from Brighouse Bay, there are plenty of sandy beaches and coves within a short drive. The cottage is a few minutes' drive from Brighouse Bay Golf Course & Leisure Club which has several leisure activities including a swimming pool and a superb cliff top golf course. It also offers a bar and eating facilities. The area has wonderful sporting facilities including game, sea and coarse fishing.

"At Chapelton, rest your weary head, upon their soft cosy beds. As you rise in the morning with your morning tea and toast, why not take a walk along the coast. Take a picnic in your sack, and hoist it upon your back. Sit outside & watch the birds feed. Or ponder the world & sit there and read. Sit & relax in front of the fire, no need to step outside if the weather is dire! Thanks for a great week - As always it was brilliant!" April 2013 Kershaw Clan of Rochdale.
"Comfortable cottage in a beautiful setting. Bonus great weather!" June 2013 The Ackers of Merseyside.

Chapelton Cottage No 2 Reviews
5 star reviewApart from the above comment about the garden the cottage was probably the best appointed of all those we've used over many years of Scottish holidays.
Superb bathroom. New HD TV. Comfy beds . Great views . Peace and quiet. Incidentally - Its not your responsibility but the last 100 yards or so to the cottage are the most pit-hole ridden I've ever come across. This is not a complaint but an observation. A word to the local council might be wise before one of your customers damages their suspension !
5 star reviewVery comfortable cottage. Well equipped. Pamela could not have been more helpful.
As somebody's who has booked with you on a number of occasions, leaving the cottage as we found it with no damage, I am very unhappy with your new policy of charging a damage deposit.
If taken up, the £18 deposition weaver gives no incentive for a hirer to be careful and could leave to encouraging breakages and damage.
I do though understand your reasoning behind the decision. Not an easy one.
