Vention House charmed all that stayed there. A perfect location to get away from it all and find stunning views through almost every window. Our boys loved it, explored it, danced around it and then hit the beach, a beach so easy to hit that you could find yourself on it with out really meaning to...location one! As the days went by we all found ourselves succumbing to the slower rhythms of life at Vention House and felt all the better for it. Even my 85 year old mother, not so mobile these days, made a trip down to the Beach house Cafe and back without complaint of body or word. The facilities were more than adequate for our small group and Matilda the house keeper was easy to contact for help if we had any problems. Ocean Cottages in general were very helpful from the first day we went to book and we'd definitely use them again. I hope Vention House will keep its status as a holiday home, as we'd almost certainly return to such a great spot.

What a week we have had!
My family treated me to a week at Vention House to celebrate my 60th birthday - and what a week we have had! We couldn't have asked for better weather, sun everyday, enough surf, no wind, just perfect. The house and location - we have run out of words to express ourselves of the beauty of the location, the lovely accommodation and facilities and how we have been able to have a fabulous family party - thank you! I feel so spoilt. We will return!

The perfect house in the perfect location for a perfect family holiday

We have spent many family holidays in Putsborough, (the best beach in the world, whatever the weather!) but this time we were so lucky with perfect weather as well as the perfect house, right on the beach. This house has it all, croquet, tennis and loads of space to share with the family or escape from the family! We watched 7 magical sunsets from the patio or the sea. Plenty of space to store Kayaks and boards with a short dash to the sea at high tide and a sandy stroll at low tide. Pricey, but worth it with a big family group. We all loved every moment.

Vention House was the perfect spot.
Our family have been coming to Putsborough beach for five generations (!) so Vention House was the perfect spot to celebrate a Pearl wedding anniversary. We've played hours of tennis, been in the sea everyday and made the most of everything this wonderful beach has to offer - the sand sculpture competition was a highlight! Thank you for the use of this stunning house - there are many angles to watch the sunset from and we've enjoyed them all! Looking forward to our next trip.

A magical experience.
This beach house has an unbeatable location, great space and wonderful gardens.. The beach is clean, great sand and waves perfect for bodyboarding. Our kids were in the fresh air almost from morn till sunset. The. weather was typically variable but when you've got a beach house like Vention it matters not one jot. Thank you to the owners for sharing the experience and to Ocean Cottages who are very professional. We hope we get the chance to do it again next year.

Vention house is awesome

Beautiful property, extremely comfortably refurbished, and the most incredible location. The house had everything we needed, including enough kitchen equipment to cook a Mexican lunch and birthday cake for 30! On top of being located on the beach, the grounds and gardens behind the house provided ample opportunity for adventure and playtime. I would highly recommend this place to anyone.

It was heaven to watch the sunset and then wake to the sound of waves
Thank you for keeping this house in such wonderful condition. We were lucky with the weather, the sun shone every day so we mostly lounged on the glorious terrace and the beach and braved the sea. Loved the tennis and the tadpole hunting in the pool by the steps. So much space to roam and then walk the coast path for hours in both directions. It was heaven to watch the sunset across a pink sky, then wake up to the sound of waves. A magical family week.

Lovely winter holiday - walk on the beach- come back to cosy House
We had a lovely holiday at Vention House. We loved looking out over the fabulous view of Putsborough Sands. Even though the weather wasn't the best, (it was January) we were able to walk on the beach and come back to the warmth and cosiness of the house. Well appointed and attractively decorated Vention House was a home from home we definitely want to come back to
