We visited Bretton Beach for the first time December/January. We found that the accommodation was excellent for what you paid for. The rates were very reasonable and fair. The dustbins are service every day and there is a maid facility on requests at a very reasonable rate, which makes the stay even more relaxing. The cottages are so well spaced that you have absolute privacy. The setting in bush over looking the sea gives you the best of both worlds, and the bird life is stunning. The beach is only 5 mins walk away. We were able to see 5 whales breaching from our porch which was the highlight of the visit. Colin and leigh are exceptional hosts and they are honest. What I appreciated the most was that I had paid for one extra day but decided to leave early and I did not expect a refund, but got one. Highly recommended in a secure and quiet setting and is suitable for all ages.
