Our stay at Margarets Cottage

5 of 5
We stayed at Margarets Cottage with the family and dog. The Cottage is lovely, very homely. The views were amazing and we enjoyed some lovely walks around the Quay and by the Church. We will most definitely be going back again

Great apartment, great location

5 of 5
We had a wonderful week in Mortehoe, in this lovely, modern, spacious apartment. We were made to feel very welcome by the owner Jeremy. We were very comfortable and had everything we needed for self catering. The location suited us well as it was only a short walk to the local pubs and shops. We enjoyed many coastal path walks and loved the beaches and scenery in the area. We will definitely visit again. A very relaxing holiday overall.
