About El Ray

Introduction

"As featured in The Times ’50 Coolest Cottages in the UK’.\n\\Hip name even hipper design and just 20 minutes along Dungeness Beach from lobster lunches at the Snack Shack this cuboid masterpiece is filled with quirky contemporary design including a kitchen built into a stripped-back Victorian railway carriage retro-cool moulded black plastic dining chairs and sliding doors that open to the big-sky shingle beach.\\ - The Times March 2018\nEl Ray stands like a beacon to contemporary design against the huge seascape beyond its glass wall and yet inside the kitchen is built around an original 19th-century railway carriage. It is this juxtaposition of ancient and modern that makes El Ray truly unique.\nThis gorgeous holiday home has an open plan living space with central wood burner and looks out onto a south facing sunny deck which is built to provide shelter from the winds. The 180 degree views from the deck are spectacular across this unique shingle spit dubbed as Britain’s only desert - the perfect location for a romantic holiday getaway. The two bedrooms look onto two internal courtyards which provide lovely sheltered sun traps.\nThe Dungeness Nature Reserve is a magical place to visit all year round. A recognised Site of Special Scientific Interest it is an area of shingle beach saltmarsh sand dunes. The unique landscape is a nature lover’s paradise perfect for walking and popular with photographers worldwide."

    Great service, made sure we had all of the relevant information and clear directions to get to the cottage. Amazing building and location unlike anywhere we have been before. What would have been better would have been more information about the area but also about the amazing building and the build of it in that location. There were a few bits and pieces of kitchen equipment that we could have used - we like to cook, and found it a bit restrictive. Similarly the fridge didn’t allow for storage of much food particularly if frozen - wouldn’t have wanted to feed a family for a week! We thought the threat of £100 deduction if we failed to lock the front door correctly was a bit punitive, especially when the reason for the difficulty in locking was the fault of the ill fitting door itself, I didn’t always shut at the bottom perfectly. Don’t blame the guests for something that is a fault in the premises!

    I think their administrative work was first class. It was easy to book, pay for and find the accommodation. It would have been nice to have a welcome pack after a long journey and there was nothing laid out...in particular there was to have been a bottle of Prosecco! Also for the rather high rent I would not have expected to have to go out and buy toilet paper and dishwashing tabs! The door of the dishwasher should have been repaired as it was difficult to operate.....cladding missing, therefore door catapulted up when loading machine. Very efficient and professional.

    Easy to contact and online forms easy to complete. Loved this property and it’s location. If you want a ’get away from it all’ experience this is definitely the place.

    We had a great stay in an awesome beach house at Dungeness. We have always loved this place, but never quite managed to stay until now.

    An efficient booking service which was courteous and helpful. A delightful house, beautifully designed and equipped. The huge, bright windows looking out to the beach were a joy.

    Fantastic and almost instant service. One phone call and within minutes I’d received exactly the information I needed. The property we stayed at was fantastic, perfect in fact. If only everything was this strife free!! I’ll definjtely be back! Idyllic! Cannot recommend El Ray highly enough. The owner was incredibly accommodating, charming and ensured our stay was heavenly! We’ll definitely be back!

    Another outstanding short stay with Mulberry Cottages. El Ray is architecturally stunning and the owner has put a lot of thought into ensuring guests are immediately at home - even a bottle of fizz in the fridge. Excellent holiday - will definitely return and would certainly recommend Mulberry Cottages to anyone. El Ray is a gorgeous and architecturally exciting building. The owner has put a lot of thought into making the guests welcome and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

    The booking was very easy and the photos of the property were very helpful. However our arrival was chaotic. There was a problem with the door lock at the property and the cleaner and builder were still at the property when we arrived. Mulberry phoned us to see when we were arriving but didn’t explain there was a problem....we would have liked to have been told so that we could have arrived after the problem had been had been fixed. El Ray was in a fantastic location and beautifully designed...we loved it. A few things to improve.....not enough cutlery,mugs or water/beer glasses for 4 adults if you are going to use the dishwasher. For letting in Autumn/Winter a proper supply of wood and firelighters is needed for the wood burner as this is the only source of heat and some hooks in the hall to hang up damp coats etc would help. A reading light needed in the sitting room too.
