“Winter Wary”
Reviewed January 30, 2013 for a stay in January 2013

This is a beautiful, picture-perfect cottage...but NOT for winter stay. We had no control over the heat and spent most of the time trying to stay warm. We were on holiday and didn't particularly want to go to bed at 10:30 when the heat went off. Also...beware of the bath tub/jacuzzi/shower because the surface is very slippery and there isn't anything to hold onto when getting out. If you go in the next few months, be aware that construction is going on across the street, and the noise (including workers' radios) during the day isn't conducive to a peaceful stay. The cottage is clean, and the kitchen well stocked with everything needed to prepare a meal....we also enjoyed the scones and cream that awaited our arrival. Hopefully this will help you when deciding where to stay in North Devon!

What a shame that you didn't talk to me about your concerns when I could have so easily have helped you! The cottage not only has central heating, but also storage heater which is on all day and the log burner (which I dont think you used), and indeed we get many reviews about how cosy the cottage is - see the previous comment. Whilst there is work happening across the lane which will soon be over, it is not visible from the cottage or the garden. The work men are inside the building and are not allowed radios. The spa bath has the usual bath access - although I do appreciate that for older guests a rail may be useful, so I will ensure that one is fitted.

We loved this cottage! We came in December and even though the weather was iffy we couldnt fault the cottage. It was lovely and welcoming and had everything you could wish for in a holiday rental. The log burner was ideal on the dark evening to snuggle up next to and we loved the beautiful well equipment kitchen. The location couldnt be better for us as we love walking and there are plenty of great walks to be had in this area, whether coastal or in land for example on Exmoor. And at the end of a long day we liked nothing more than a drink of Tribute in the local pub in Georgeham in front of the fire, I must say the food was superb too! All in all a perfect devon bolt hole, would definitely go back...

“Lovely cottage, beautiful beaches .....”

person found this review helpful

We stayed at this lovely cottage in October with our dog. Walked to the beach every morning which was easily reached from the cottage, about a 10 minute walk - but a bit longer coming back (up hill!). Lovely log burner fire every night. The cottage had all modern amenities and a comfy bed. Will definitely be returning in the spring. The property owner Claire was very friendly and on hand if we needed anything.

Putsborough Manor Cottage is a lovely thatched and beamed cottage, set in a beautiful location and close to the wonderful beach. Where we spent many very peaceful walks before settling down for the evening in front of the roaring log burner. A stay here will surely relax and revitalise. There is plenty to keep all amused very close by.
The owners, Claire & John are very friendly and helpful.
A real home from home.

“This is THE place to stay in North Devon!”
Reviewed August 26, 2012 for a stay in August 2012

Having stayed in many nice places in North Devon over the years and just discovered Putsborough Manor Cottage, we now won't be staying anywhere else. Cottage is exactly as described. Set in quiet surroundings just 10 min walk to the beautiful beach it was fantastic. Lots of outdoor space for the kids and dog and close to Georgeham pubs with their great food. Owners friendly and helpful. Don't think twice - book it! Looking forward to our next stay.
