Highgate cottage is a beautifully equipped hideaway in a central location, down a side path so doesn't experience any traffic or road noise. The facilities are all of a very high quality which catered for our every need. There were special welcome touches on our arrival wine, milk, biccies and even a dog bed and blanket that were very much appreciated. In a great location for walking, eating, drinking etc. The stairs are a little steep but very manageable. The dog wasn't allowed on the beach at this time of year but the cottage is close to a park which Sasha loved. A great holiday we will be back!
Lovely little cottage, modern and comfortable. The owner, Helen, has thoughtfully put together a holiday home lacking nothing! Comfy bed, modern and fully equipped kitchen, easy to operate central heating, lovely lounge diner and modern bathroom. Outside area has decking and seating and is fully enclosed - perfect for our little dog! Location is just 5 mins walk from sea view street where many bars and restaurants are located. To be noted, the cottage has a spiral staircase which is quite steep which could be a problem for elderly or infirm.
I had a really nice stay at Highgate cottage Helen is a lovely lady and she’s thought of everything you could need. The accommodation is really nice very posh but also very cosy for pooches my dog settled in immediately. Parking is a pain but was worth it for me.
Would not hesitate to stay here again!
Helen is lovely and met us on arrival.
The garden and cottage are immaculate.
My two dogs were very settled here, there was even a clean bed for them!
The photos do not do it justice!
We will be back!!
Great place to stay, beautiful garden and less than a ten minute walk to the beach. We had a problem with a leaking door the first night but it was fixed the next day, so good service too! Lovely little cottage (and I hear they take pets too!)
We have just spent the last two nights in this beautiful cottage. The words ‘Oasis’ and ‘perfect’ spring to mind.
Helen and Mark were so nice, the perfect hosts, nothing was too much trouble and communication was excellent.
We arrived so much later than expected due to traffic yet despite there being a key safe Mark, Helens husband, stayed on to allow us the parking space he had saved for us and give us a tour of this striking, bright, clean and dog friendly one bed cottage and garden.
Helen was away for the weekend so unfortunately we didn’t meet but was on the end of the phone at any time for any advice. She had also provided a beautiful continental breakfast which was much appreciated plus crisps and fruit scones, not to mention cupboards full of incidentals which included baked beans dog dental stix and poop bags!
From the pretty garden (secure for dogs, seating, BBQ, mood lighting, 2 ducks, one with skates on) two large double doors accessed the ground floor, at one end the red black and white fully equipped kitchen (with washer dryer) flooded in natural daylight by the large skylight above and at the other, the comfortable lounge (sofa, dining table, dramatic fireplace, large TV, supply of good DVD’S books and games). Here there were local attraction leaflets and the cottage manual which had everything you needed to find your way around and even included spare maps to take away!
Upstairs via a winding staircase (which may prove awkward for a person with limited mobility) was the smart grey back and white bedroom with a really comfortable bed and the Travatine tiled very cleverly laid out wet room ensuite with fun multi head shower.
Charles and I would like to move in or at least know the name of the designer! All in all a lovely weekend break made that much better by Helen and Mark and their beautiful home. Thank you for having us. Caroline
