***** Thomas – June 2019
Hyams glamour without the crowds!

I’ve now stayed here several times and am yet to be disappointed. The place is always immaculately clean, well stocked and the booking easy to arrange. Unbeatable for its secluded yet central location and who doesn’t love a fireplace!? Always a pleasure staying at the Boathouses!

***** Retro92 – April 2019
Quietness best the Chaos

Boathouse 1 is a surprisingly quiet, beautiful location – just far enough around the corner that it is completely away from the pandemonium that Hyams can be. Lying in the hammock on the front deck is as peaceful a place as there is. Bird song everywhere and you can often hear the waves lolling onto the beach. Unexpectedly the wifi was excellent, which added to the serenity (teenage children now quiet …). Possible downsides of this property (depending on your viewpoint) are (i) it gets little direct sunlight outside of the summer months, as it faces south, on a downslope and has loads of tree cover, so can feel a little dark, and the dryer needs to be used to dry your beach towels; (ii) the TV could be a little more modern and the player is just a DVD (no blu ray). We knew about these items but still rebooked -> we like this property.
