Cottage beautifully done and I loved being right next to the sea.

Mrs Anne H,

This cottage is probably the best we have stayed in. It is in a lovely quiet location right next to the beach but handy for local attractions. The renovations are of a high standard and the large kitchen window looking out to sea is fantastic. Both bedrooms look out to the same sea view I found myself setting the alarm so I could lay in bed and watch the sunrise, even getting up early to have a morning walk on the beach. The owners were in touch to make sure everything was alright for us thank you we would love to return.

Previous Customer,

The beautifully equipped and renovated fisherman's cottage has a wonderful position overlooking the beach. Huge windows and a garden bench make watching the tides ebb and flow an absorbing pastime. Miles of empty sands, extensive rockpools and vast skies, all form the backdrop to this cottage. We loved just sitting and watching, so much birdlife and a sighting of dolphins. Great cycling up the coast, largely off-road. Everything in the cottage worked perfectly and we loved the home made chocolate cake left for us. A great relaxing stay. Thank you.

Previous Customer,

The cottage felt very homely and welcoming. Very well equipped kitchen and luxurious furniture and accessories make for a comfortable and relaxing stay. Loved the woodburners and attention to detail, like being able to dim the lights, makes all the difference. Loved the open vista to the sea and enjoyed bird watching and watching the changing tides.

Oliver and T,

We stayed at the end of April 2019 for our honeymoon, after getting married at Cresswell church, and it truly could not have been more perfect! The cottage and the location are so beautiful. The work the owners have done to restore this original fishing cottage to (beyond!) its former glory is amazing. It's cosy and romantic yet modern and spacious. The views are incredible! Neighbours/locals were friendly and helpful. The village is sleepy and peaceful, yet there is plenty to see and do! Drift cafe is ideal, 5/10 min walk when you don't want to venture too far. We really enjoyed just living the dream for a week. Lots of time spent on my new favourite bench (willing a whale to show itself!) We loved the cottage garden too, so sweet. Lots of birds to see! Binoculars were a lovely touch. But yes, could go on and on.. BEAUTIFUL Anchor Cottage. Thank you for the wonderful memories! J&N thank you for sharing your home with us. Very grateful. Will be back!

Jess and A,
