The following comments are from the jury of the RIBA East 2009 Ingenuity Awards who voted this property the winner of the home award -

Sandy Castle is a different holiday let from usual cottage, having a games room is a bonus. The upstairs living area is very light and airy and has an added unusual outside space. We enjoyed it very much.Miss Siobhan Butler - 19th February 2018

We loved 4 Sandy Castle and would definitely book again. Loved all the little extras such as the welcome goodies from local suppliers (and Adnams fizz!) and the location was great for us as a family as we were close to everything. Would definitely book again. Really impressed with the local team. Very friendly and helpful and made me feel very welcome as soon as I walked into the office. Offering my children a stick of rock was the icing on the cake! Thank you for a brilliant holiday.
