"highly recommended...excellent accomodation"

This has to be one of the finest locations in North Devon-only a few minutes from Devon's best beach- and wonderful walks close by. Jon and Claire have a superb location here, made all the more special by their beautiful (dog friendly) cottages. Two great pubs with good food nearby.
Cannot wait to visit again soon .

Thanks for your lovely comments, very gratefully received and I am sure that future guests will find them very useful!

"Delightful Cottage"

Just enjoyed a great week at Putsborough Manor Cottage the weather was kind which contributed to relaxing time. The cottage is well equipped with everything you could need
Putsborough beach is close to the cottage 10 minute walk, our two bulldogs enjoyed walking on the beach which is open to dogs all year
Would recommend a trip to the Kings Arms at Georgeham, great food and very welcoming.
Look forward to returning with friends with a view to staying in the new cottage which looks fabulous.

Our thanks to Claire and John for a great holiday.

Thanks so much for your lovely review, I am sure that it will prove very useful to future visitors. We hope that we will see you again one day.

Thank you for your review. I am glad you enjoyed your stay although it was a shame the cottage was fully booked when you wanted to come to stay again. Next time you stay just contact me about adjusting the heating and I would be happy to help, PS there IS a heater in the kitchen under the sink unit, you must have missed it?!
