Extras and Experiences


A wonderful stay in history... 4.5/5

Staying at Abbotts Cliff House makes you feel like you've just stepped back in time to a wonderful world of sweeping staircases and breathtaking views. On arrival the owner was warm and welcoming, and the house was spotless and cosy (which was perfect in January). We stayed for 4 nights to celebrate a very late Christmas and it was a truly unique experience for us all. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed and all the beds were comfy. We never did manage to get the TV or DVD's to work (we were there in a middle of a storm) but luckily the kids were happy playing Christmas games! Many thanks to all for their hospitality.

Great weekend stay 5/5

The house was easy to find, very clean and organised. The kitchen was very well equipped and everything working perfectly. The rooms were very comfortable and the living area was super cosy with the fire.

Couldn’t have chosen a better house! 5/5

We all loved everything about the house. The house itself and the view were absolutely stunning. The house was spotlessly clean and decorated beautifully. It was also very comfortable and spacious. Customer service was also amazing both from BloomStays and Steve who was our contact during our stay. Questions were answered quickly and enthusiastically and we felt very welcome. It was much appreciated. Such a beautiful house. We will definitely be returning.

What can I say about this home, exquisite, lovely, historical... I could go on and on. Thank you for everything you're the most unbelievable host. We enjoyed our stay even if it rained, it didn't stop us. I hope to be back.

A corporate stay with a view! 5/5

We loved Abbots Cliff for its exceptional space and rooms which was perfect for our company stay. We used the three reception rooms for separate meetings and even some reflection time walking along the garden looking out to the sea. I wasn’t prepared for that view, the photos are amazing but in the flesh it’s like being on top of the world. Or at least maybe the South of France!!

A perfect place to refresh and relax 4.8/5

We spent three days at Abbots Cliff House for a team off-site, and it couldn't have been more perfect. Plenty of large, comfortable bedrooms and bathrooms, great space in the light-filled reception room for us to meet and be productive, beautiful views, fully-equipped kitchen... in short, ideal. We had all we needed for a very successful planning retreat, and even a few moments of refreshment as we could easily take a walk and take in the scenery. The owner and the management company were very helpful and responsive, and check-in was easy and straightforward. We would love to book again next year! Thanks so much for making our stay so smooth, comfortable, and even fun! All the best, Amy
