Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Beautiful retreat
Manor Cottage is beautiful. The grounds and location are out of the way yet so close to Putsborough beach. Parking is good. Loved the enclosed garden. The kitchen is very well equipped. Everything you can think of is there. The lounge is a great size with a lovely woodburner. The bathroom has the jacuzzi style bath with an overhead shower. The shower is not the best. Plenty of hot water but lacking in volume of water. No bathroom or toilet upstairs but not a problem for us. Bedroom is a good size and the bed is a superking and comfy. Although we didn't meet Claire she was always available on the end of the phone and very helpful and great communication. The roads to reach the cottage are narrow but it is only the last couple of miles that are tricky. It is well worth the effort when you get there. It is truly a peaceful haven, just what we wanted. Plenty of walking right from the cottage. Good dog friendly pubs in nearby villages. A bit of a trek for groceries so stop on the way down or bring them with you. I would highly recommend Manor Cottage. We had a lovely week away here.

Excellent stay pet friendly New Year holiday
This is our 4th or 5th stay at Putsborough Manor farm, we have now stayed in all 3 of the cottages avaialble to rent and love them all. Manor Cottage was particularly lovely for this New Year break as it has the log burner to cosy up after bracing beach walks (logs and kindling helpfully included) Putsborough beach is easy to walk to across the filed and Croyde beach a little further via a bridle track, but still easily walked, all very dog friendly this time of year We love both the pubs in Georgeham; The Rock and The Kings Arms and of course you can never go far wrong at The Thatch in Croyde Accomodation is comfortable, the cottages are very cosy and warm and the kitchens are all really well equiped We look forward to our next trip ...

First Class holiday accommodation
We stayed at Putsborough for 2 weeks in early September, and were blown away by the accommodation, everything was thought of, attention to detail was second to none. We had the best 2 weeks ever in this country, comfortable and so much space both inside and outside the Manor Cottage, we came away feeling relaxed and that we had achieved our goal of recharging the batteries, beach is a hidden gem and within a leisurely walk through a field, Croyde, Saunton and Woolacombe all within easy walking distance. What an ideal spot to be off the beaten track, but easily within the hustle and bustle of Croyde if or when you needed it - Claire and Jon are superb hosts, always on hand if needed. We will be back.

peaceful and relaxing, lovely cottage in great location
Really lovely cottage which was perfect for a few days away to walk and enjoy the beautiful surroundings. Great location, perfect for dog owners. My only suggestion would be to have extra bedding available in the winter months for those cold souls!

Excellent break
Wonderful sandy beaches - the beaches are on the doorstep. The cottage was spacious, very clean and beautifully equipped. A delightful garden and we were encouraged to help ourselves to fruit and vegetables. A necessary splendid break at this time!

RELAXING BREAK
We stayed at the Manor Cottage 12th October 2019 for 1x week. The cottage itself is lovely, immaculate throughout, beds really comfy and the added benefit of Sky for the cozy nights in front of the log burning stove. Location is ideal very peaceful location yet within walking distance of Croyde center with numerous pubs and places to eat. The beach is really close by to just a short stroll across the field. All in all i would recommend anybody thinking of staying here to book straight away, you will not be disappointed.

Beautiful traditional cottage next the best beach in England
Me and my family have had the best week staying in this cute little thatch cottage. The garden is private, pretty and peaceful. The best bit is that we can walk to the beach across the field. We enjoyed lots of walks and surfing too! Nearby, Croyde is great for pubs and shops and it’s a short walk down a quiet lane which only takes about 15 mins. We absolutely loved this cosy cottage and cannot wait 6o come back some day. Highly recommend

A beautiful part of England
The cottage is well placed to be able to easily walk to Croyde (in several different ways), Putsborough beach and Woolacombe. Whilst well equipped the descriptions given do not quite meet up to the reality. The 'guest cloakroom' downstairs is the only toilet in the house, the terrace seating area is much smaller than indicated from the pictures, and is right next to a surprisingly busy road leading to the beach and Croyde. All the knives in the kitchen need sharpening, the smoke alarm should have been replaced in April 2018. We could not find a DVD player, the TV in the lounge needs a sound bar.Towels would be better placed in the bathroom on arrival not upstairs on beds where they have to be taken down to the only bathroom. The visitor's book for comments was full and the last review appeared to be in 2016, I would have made these comments in it but clearly it has not been looked at for sometime. It is an area where it is not easy to drive as the roads are narrow and difficult to negotiate,Georgeham has two places to eat but you have to drive there and back, also a very good little shop but expensive so be prepared to bring everything you need with you, or shop in Braunton on your way through, Tesco and Co-op. Big bonus the water was always piping hot and we had brilliant weather.

Thanks for emailing me direct to let me know you had a great week in the cottage - which is why some of your comments have surprised me here. (Readers see reviews below) Just to pick up on some of these comments; the DVD player is in the TV it also has full SKY and Netflix on it. The smoke alarm has been tested and no need to replace it, the terrace clearly shown in photos which are accurate, we just think that the towels look nice placed on the beds - apologies if you had to take them downstairs. You must have found the old visitors book - there is a new one with lots of lovely comments in it! Thanks for letting us know about the knives, we will get them sharpened. The Devon lanes are what they are, but once you know how to navigate them it is not really an issue - it's only one mile long.

Fantastic cottage in ideal location
We have stayed at Putsborough 3 times now and this was by far the best cottage that we have stayed in so far . In fact I don’t think we’ve ever stayed in a holiday rental of such a high standard. Location is great, a short walk over the field to Putsborough beach with surf boards. No driving stress on Devon roads as we didn’t take the car out once all week . Croyde or Georgeham are a short walk away for groceries or a trip to local pubs. Lots of local dog walks with available. Great surfing at Putsborough . Cottage is equipped to a high standard with its own jacuzzi bath tub and Sky TV. Private quiet garden with BBQ and eating area . Cottage is idyllic and peaceful . An ideal place . We have booked again for next year!

Perfect Devon retreat
We had a lovely holiday here back in July. The cottage itself is really comfortable and in the most fantastic location. We were able to run our dog on the field just opposite and couldn’t believe how close we were to Putsborough Sands beach which is the most beautiful stretch of sand. We went on many walks through the countryside and will definitely be returning one day!
