From Torquay, United Kingdom Jul 2013

Well what can I say other than this had to be One of our best holidays we have ever had........
From the moment we booked the cottage we noticed a difference from previous experiences we have had with property owners. I received an email from Lynn and John who asked me if there was anything we would like them to get for us before we arrived, also we were given options on the sleeping arrangements for the children. Lynn sent through directions of how to get to the cottage, but after arriving 2 hours late I must of left them in the car hire office in the airport. It was almost midnight that I phoned Lynn in a panic asking her for directions.......Well what a star she was, as without her we would off ended up god knows where...!? Even though it was late when we arrived both Lynn and John were waiting for us with big welcoming smiles.
The cottage is self contained and detached from the main house in which Lynn and John live in. Outside the cottage there is a covered courtyard with a large table and chairs for dining. The cottage has a lovely home from home feeling, it has One double bedroom in which we had a double bed, and One single bed, in the lounge area there was another single bed, along with a double bed settee. Lynn and John even provide you with towels for your stay, so you have more room in your suitcase...!!! The accommodation was clean, light and spacious, the kitchen has everything you could want and more.....Lynn and John have thought of everything to make your holiday as stress free as possible from having a first aid kit in the cottage, down to having toys for the children to play with in the pool. There is also a large table tennis that can be used during your stay great for adults and kids alike!
The swimming pool was amazing we spent so much time in there great fun! There is a changing room/toilet next to the swimming pool for you to use, there is also a shower and shaded area with table and chairs or a swing bench to enjoy. The swimming pool area is gated and fenced, so the children can not get in alone Lynn and John have even put the handle on the gate upside down as a preventative measure.
During our stay we got to know Lynn and John on a friendship level they are genuine and amazing people who will do anything to make your time with them special, the children loved them both and we all felt like we were part of their family, they have Two dogs who are the most softest cutest adorable pets you could imagine. If for some reason you are not a dog lover, it wont be a problem as Lynn and John will keep the dogs away from you during your stay. But honestly they are gorgeous and I am sure you will change your mind as soon as you see them. Our children would wake up and go to see Lynn, John, and the dogs Tessa and Stella every morning it was part of their daily routine, and they miss them all very much.
On the estate there is also Two 1 bedroomed self contained apartments that are also available for rent so there is an option for bigger families or groups to stay also.
Whilst we were there Lynn and John invited us to have a BBQ with them, the food was amazingly delicious and John made his speciality sangria at the bar......And from what I can remember it was a good night.... haha. The property is in a fantastic location, the rural setting is great to just get away from the hustle and bustle of your typical seaside resort, and being able to experience the real Spain with a town called Pinoso which is only a 5/10 minute drive away. There you will find shops, bars and restaurants.
Whilst there we also visited Guardamar, which was about 45 minutes away. The beach was amazing and so safe, it has a fair for the children, loads of restaurants, bars, and a market stall to buy souvenirs.
Benidorm is only about 1hour 15 minutes away in my opinion it is well worth a day trip there at least.......Loads to do and see...! We went to Benidorm with Lynn and John for the day and ate at the all you can eat Chinese well all I can say is WOW it was fab.
We will definitely be returning to stay with Lynn and John and I can not wait :)
Book with Lynn and John you will not be disappointed...!


From Marple, Stockport

We are currently staying in the Little Cottage - myself, my husband and our two girls (5 & 2). Both Lynn and John could not have done more for us, they have gone completely above and beyond the call of duty as hosts and we feel like (after only a week and a half) we are staying with friends. The little cottage is really nice, a really good size for our little family, with plenty of room, and very well equipped. The pool is lovely with plenty of room to swim, ample loungers, and a really useful shaded area. The entrance to the little cottage is through a covered courtyard which has been great for us for the children to play in out of the heat of sun at midday. Lynn & John are genuinely lovely people and have really looked after us.

Camelot-A friendly, peaceful & relaxing atmosphere. My wife and 2 sons aged 18 & 11 have spent holidays at Camelot on many occasions over the last couple of years. We have stayed in all of the accommodation types during the summer, autumn and winter months. On every occasion you are greeted with a very warm welcome from Lynn and John who are both seeking to ensure that your stay is comfortable, relaxing, pleasant and enjoyable. The accommodation is spotless with all facilities in full working order. On the rare occasion that something does break John is swiftly on hand to with his tools to resolve the problem. The pool area is very nice with lots of terraces to relax in the sun. There is also a covered terrace to shade from the sun or watch the starry sky’s after dark. The location is very quiet, with easy access to the surrounding villages and local markets on Wednesdays & Saturdays. If you are looking for a peaceful relaxing holiday in rural Spain at a competitive price, then Camelot is the place to visit. I would highly recommend this as a holiday destination. Thanks Tim and Sue Geear. UK

Text for your testimonial in Dutch: "Ervaringen van onze vakanties bij Camelot: Van 2009 t/m 2012 zijn wij elk jaar meer dan 2 maal te gast geweest in de B&B, omdat wij in deze periode bezig waren met het zoeken van een mooie plek en daarna het bouwen van ons nieuwe huis in deze prachtige omgeving. We hebben op diverse plaatsen in het huis gelogeerd. Een aantal malen in de appartementen, tevens in de cottage en in het grote huis. Het beviel ons overal erg goed. Aangezien wij er in verschillende jaargetijden zijn geweest hebben we "koude" winters meegemaakt en natuurlijk hete zomers. In alle jaargetijden was het er goed toeven. s Zomers op het terras bij het zwembad met regelmatig s avonds een BBQ en s winters bij de houtkachel. Ook hebben wij gebruik gemaakt van de mogelijkheid een aantal dagen hun appartement aan de kust in Villajoyosa vlakbij Benidorm te huren. Wij hebben de eigenaren Lynn en John leren kennen als erg gastvrije en vriendelijke mensen. Zij hebben een goede kennis van wat er in de wijde omgeving te zien en te ondernemen is. Lynn is een fantastische kok en John een meester op de BBQ en ook de (Engelse) ontbijten zijn ons altijd erg goed bevallen. Ze houden rekeningen met al je bijzondere wensen wat betreft het eten. Alles is erg betaalbaar en niets is hun teveel om het je naar de zin te maken. Theo en Jaqueline Evers uit Helmond" freely translated: Experiences of our holidays at Camelot: From 2009 till 2012 we were each year more than 2 times a guest at the B & B, because in this period we were engaged in search of a nice place and then building our new home in this beautiful area. We have stayed in several places in the house a few times in the apartments, also in the cottage and in the big house. It suited us very well everywhere. Since we have been in different seasons we have experienced "cold" winters and hot summers. In all seasons, it was a good place to stay. In summer on the terrace by the pool with regular an evening BBQ and in winter by the wood stove. We also used the opportunity to rent a few days their apartment on the seafront in Villajoyosa, near Benidorm. We have known the owners Lynn and John as very hospitable and friendly people. They have a good knowledge of what is happening in the surrounding area and where to go to. Lynn is a fantastic cook and John a master on the BBQ and the (English) breakfasts are always really liked. They keep accounts with your special needs in terms of food. Everything is very affordable and nothing is too much for them. Theo Evers and Jaqueline from Helmond "
