“An amazing haven!”
Reviewed December 10, 2017 for a stay in December 2017

Sadly we could only spend 2 nights here, far too short for such a gem of a cottage!
Liz had thought of everything, the scones, flowers, salt n pepper mill(yes, I am a mill fan and even brought my own just in case!). It was warm,cosy,welcoming and had a great vibe. I didn't want to leave! Had a great dinner in Duke's, would recommend it, staff were fab! We shall return, thank you Liz.

“Perfect cottage near the town and the sea”
Reviewed October 25, 2017 for a stay in October 2017

Puffins is a pretty little cottage which is very clean and well thought out. It is well located and only a 10 minute walk into town and the seafront. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We'll be back!

“Excellent Accommodation”
Reviewed July 30, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Warning - I shall be over using the word 'excellent'!
From initial enquiry to time of departure, the whole experience has been faultless. Liz has provided an excellent service for an excellent property. Liz replied very promptly to the initial enquiry. The booking and payment process was very easy, receiving regular updates throughout. Communication regarding arrival/departure times and key location were excellent and was received in a timely fashion.
Arriving at this lovely cottage we were met with personalised welcome messages from Liz along with delicious scones, clotted cream and jam, gluten free cake for our daughter and lovely iced biscuits for our granddaughter.
Accommodation, furnishings and equipment were all excellent including information and instructions regarding use if required.
Parking outside the property was never a problem. Its location was a short walk into Sidmouth and Liz provided lots of information about the town, its environs and facilities.
So much thought had gone into the property and the comfort of the guests that I cannot recommend Liz and Puffins highly enough.
Liz and Puffins provided 4 people of varying ages with a wonderful 4 night break. The only negative was that it was only 4 nights!
