Fantastic view, very light and airy. From the softness of the sheets and the power of the shower to the kitchen equipment and comfiness of the sofa this apartment was superb. No faults whatsoever and the pooch adored his treats which the owners kindly left for him. I would recommend this to all.

Overlooking the quay, the cottage is very clean, very well presented and astonishingly well equipped! Communication with Carrie the owner, and Nickie the cottage manager, was great and the overall impression was that we were dealing with people who genuinely cared that we had a good stay. The cottage was very warm and cosy, and we looked forward to coming back to it each day after long walks on the beach. We came without our son this time, but the cottage is ideally suited for children too, with lots of toys, books and videos (and wifi!) to keep them busy.

Lovely clean apartment with everything that you could possibly need provided .Great coastpath walks from the door which we certainly made the most of in both directions and visiting all the lovely little villages around Putsborough.
