“lovely cottage”
Reviewed October 3, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Just back from staying in minnies.cottage was very clean and very well equipped everything is thought of regards to giving a comfotable stay. In our party we had two over eighties who struggled with the stairs and the extremely small bedroom downstairs but thats not the fault of the rental company.
Things that can be improved are both toilet seats in both upper and lower bathrooms which are broken,the electrical switch on the right side of the bed in the master bedroom (smashed) and the washing machine which needs a good clean out with calgon to get rid of the awful smell.
Would i return? cant wait but not with old folks

“Great place with small complaint.”
Reviewed July 20, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Minnie's Cottage was a good location and the view was acceptable--from the upstairs bedroom window only. It was a charming cottage built about 300 years ago. Very clean and well kept except for a slight mold problem in the upstairs bathroom. You couldn't see the mold but you could smell it. The problem more than likely stems from the miniscule sinks where the water splashes out onto the wood floor. I would consider staying there again--and recommend to others--if they fix the mold issue. It is a short walk to restaurants and the harbor, as well as to the coastal path which is great for photo ops. Such a lovely historic place. Hope to go back there again someday.

“excellent accomodation”
Reviewed June 7, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Just got back from a wonderful week at "Minnies" great place to stay and so quiet and peaceful. We had a total of 40 bumps to the head (low beams on stairs) between 4 of us, just getting used to it when it was time to come home. Everything you might need is provided for a comfortable stay. The car parking space is a bit of a treck up a fairly steep hill I wouldn't advise staying here if you are unfit, but it doesn't detract from the pretty views and the peaceful surroundings. Would definitely recommend to anyone (who can manage the hill).

“A truly amazing experience, at Minnie's.”

Me and my partner went for a 4 day stay at this cottage during the week. On arrival it exceeded expectations, beautifully furnished, all modern amenities you could want, but it never detracted from the character of the property. The surrounding area is idyllic, and the local facilities were charming polite and appealing. We recommend a visit to the Blue Peter pub as its atmosphere and food is amazing. We will definitely be looking at returning to Minnie's again. Ps the shower is out of this world!!

Staying at Minnies was a lovely experience. The cottage is beautifully restored and equipped to a very high standard. I had a lovely view of the harbour from the bedroom window. The location of the cottage is traffic free made up of narrow lanes called The Warren. It's simply stunning. Unspoilt and full of character with the friendliest locals I've ever met. Hope to return again soon !
