Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Blue Monkey. My sister and family travelled from Glasgow and my family came from Bedfordshire. The house was perfect for our needs. Beautifully refurbished. Very clean, with everything we could possibly need. Great location for Polhawn Fort where we attended a wedding. We had some lovely walks, and spent far too many hours in the local pub, by the end of our stay we had made some great friends. We've come home feeling relaxed and chilled ready to take on the year ahead. We've all discussed how we would love to return to Blue Monkey for another great holiday.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The house is superbly equipped, decorated to a high standard and brilliantly maintained. The beds were comfortable, the bathrooms are large and there's a real sense of space even when the house is full.

We enjoyed the fact that the house is in a great location right in the heart of the village with a choice of pubs only a short stroll away. We loved the stunning views from along the coastal path and enjoyed some of the many outdoor activities available locally.

We would definitely recommend this house and fully intend to return in the not too distant future.

We stayed at Blue Monkey over New Year and it really is the perfect holiday house - brilliantly kitted out for any occasion, cosy, fabulous bathrooms and bedrooms; a real treat to stay in. I can't recommend it enough. And Kingsand and Cawsand is such a beautiful place, with its stunning coastline, community spirit, great pubs and best of all, hilarious dressing up on new year's eve and then new year's day swimming in full costume! We went back to London feeling like we'd been away for ages and it had only been 3 days.

We enjoyed a fabulous long weekend at Blue Monkey

over New Year and have no hesitation in highly

recommending it to other people! In fact we have

been telling all our family and friends to stay

there. The house is absolutely stunning -

wonderfully light and airy - with large bedrooms

and high ceilings - perfect for large groups /

families with good entertaining space and cosy

corners to hide away with a book. The location

could not be better - right in the heart of the

village, a stone's throw from the beach and within

stumbling distance of some classic local pubs. We

can't wait to go back to what is a real home from

home!
