A lovely quiet cottage in a wonderful village location

5 of 5
We have just stayed at Puffin Cottage for a week from 29th December 2017. The cottage is in a quiet village location and is perfectly placed to travel around and see the sights of Devon and Dorset. We travelled out to Lyme Regis, Sidmouth, Charmouth, Burton Bradstock, Beer, Lulworth Cove and Dirdle Door - all reasonable travelling distances. The cottage is cosy and beautifully presented and has all the facilities and equipment you need for a week or more. Some lovely attention to detail and nice touches like the tea tray and biscuits placed there for our arrival. The log burner was very nice especially this week with storm Eleanor raging through. We turned down the heating and just used the log burner to heat the cottage. If you need logs and kindling the little village shop sells them. We ate at the local village pub and they were very friendly and welcoming. Food was good. The village shop is also friendly and perfect for picking up bits and pieces. Overall a lovely relaxing week, much needed after Christmas. Highly recommended.
