“So relaxing”
Reviewed October 20, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

I absolutely loved staying here. The cottage was a beautiful blend of traditional features and modern appliances. I particularly enjoyed the wood burning stove once I figured out how to light it. Clare was very welcoming and always helpful. She recommended a number of places to visit/eat which were all great, but my favourite thing to do was to walk 10 mins to the amazing sandy beach with my dog Charlie.

I highly recommend this place, I'd definitely stay here again.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed October 12, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

The cottage is in a quiet location right near the amazing Puttsborough Sands Beach. The positives are many the cottage is well laid out and has all the mod cons you would expect, as well as sky TC which is a lovely touch. Location rural which suited us but others may want to be closer to town. You can walk to Croyde and Woolacombe in about 30/40 mins and both a lovely walks. We loved our stay in the cottage - thank you to Claire for making it all so easy!

Lovely stay at Putsborough Manor Cottage. Location excellent, cottage beautiful and very cosy with or without log burner on.

“A wonderful, picturesque cottage in a perfect location”
Reviewed May 12, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We stayed at the cottage at the end of April and were made to feel welcome on arrival by Claire. The photos don't really do justice to how picture perfect the cottage is. Everything about it feels welcoming. The cottage is very well maintained, and there is an obvious attention to detail throughout.
The cottage is really well positioned, with Putsborough beach a stone’s throw away and Cryode, Georgeham and Woolacombe all within walking distance.
We had a wonderful time and will definitely be booking again soon!

“Beautiful Cottage in a lovely location”
Reviewed March 17, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Myself & my husband stayed in the Putsborough Manor Cottage for our minimoon after getting married the Saturday before... and wow what a place!

The cottage is just beautiful, from the outside and in it really is the prettiest cottage. It has a big enclosed garden (perfect for our 2 spaniels) a lovely kitchen & bathroom, but what really makes it is the lounge area. The wood burning fire makes it perfect for the cosy nights in!

The sky TV was a massive bonus too (as my husband is a big football fan it meant we didn't have to miss a game) and the WIFI connection too is great.

Claire the owner kindly emailed us before our stay to advise us of some restaurants in Georgham, the Kings Arms & the Rock Inn which were advisable to book at before our stay - both of which were amazing. And she kindly recommended Clay Pigeon shooting and the companies who we should book though. We also pre booked a Tesco shop to be delivered on the evening of our first day - again all advised on the email before we arrived! All this help was greatly appreciated!!

Claire's Husband kindly met us on the afternoon of our arrival and talked us through the closest walks and a few essentials about the cottage as well as where we could get the wood for the wood burner - they were both so helpful and friendly and nothing was too much trouble.

All in all we had a fabulous time in Putsborough Manor Cottage - including the dogs who absolutely loved the beach which is only a 5min walk away! We are actually trying to get dates together to go again next year!!

“Charming character, but comfortable and modern”
Reviewed March 3, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

A week at Putsborough Manor Cottage ticket all the boxes and we can confirm that the positive reviews on here are totally justified. My wife and I wanted a quiet week to switch off, relax, read and enjoy the coast. The cottage was a perfect size for the two of us... big enough to have lots of room but small enough to be cosy. The photos are a little dark and do not do the lounge/diner justice. It also looks bigger in the photo.

The log burner made us feel warm, the excellent wi-fi connection and full Sky package kept us entertained and connected, and it was very peaceful. We also got a Tesco shop delivered on the day of arrival which was a stroke of genius and I'd recommend you do this too. Braunton is not far with a Tesco and shops but we only went there once.

The beach is only a short walk over a field and down the road. It's stunning and a two-miles walk to Woolacombe at the other end is an option (although the resort was 90% closed when we went there in the car). The cafe was open on one of the days we went to the beach which was really nice. It only opens on some days when the sun shines at this time of year.

Putsborough is a tiny little hamlet and very pretty. You are connected to the main house but completely private. The owners are very friendly and couldn't have been more helpful with the booking and stay.

Georgham is a village just a five minute drive away and the two pubs there are definitely worth going to. The Rock was superb for Sunday Lunch and The Kings Arms is also very good.

You can park right outside. The area is very dark at night but we didn't care as it all felt very secure.

There are plenty of walks in the area going along coastal paths and the Sandleigh tearoom near the path to Baggy Point at Croyde Bay is also worth visiting.

We'd definitely go back to this cottage and liked the time of year as it was quiet. I am sure if offers a different experience in the summer which would work well for families. We were lucky enough to have a few days of brilliant sunshine in February so cannot complain at all.

“Beautiful cosy cottage”

We stayed at this lovely cottage for a few days in January with our dog. Great base for beach walks and so nice to come back out of the cold to the lovely open fire. Loved the bedrooms & whole feel of the cottage & wished we could have stayed for longer. Added bonus was the full Sky package so we could curl up in front of the fire & watch a movie after a lovely meal in one of the nearby pubs. Claire was very helpful but not at all intrusive and we're looking forward to our summer break - this time at the garden cottage.
