“Lovely cottage in good, quiet location.”
Reviewed 20 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We had a lovely weekend stay here. Lovely cottage with everything you need all provided and the cream tea an added bonus !
Easy stroll into town and sea front. Off street parking was not an issue as plenty of parking on the quiet street outside. Would definately stay again

“Great cottage, great location.”
Reviewed 17 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Cottage was very clean and well presented everything we needed was provided and more. The location was a short pleasant walk into town/ beach. We managed to find parking space just outside the cottage all weekend. The owner was very quick to respond to my questions prior to and after booking. Can't fault it. Great cottage.

“well thought out, cosy and clean holiday cottage”

person found this review helpful

From the moment we booked, the experience was good. To be greeted with fresh flowers and a cream tea was just lovely! . The owner answered promptly and directions were clear. Everything was clean, welcoming and just right for a break. We are experienced self catering holidaymakers and Puffins met all our needs. Good parking availability, comfy bed, all the right kitchen equipment, fluffy towels, tasteful furnishings and peaceful surroundings.
