“Michele B Recommended”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

After an extended stay at these cottages I cannot praise them highly enough. Simon was so welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. The accomodation was perfect, beautifully clean and had lovely little touches that made you feel at home. An added bonus is the variety of places to eat all within a short walking distance perfect when you don't feel like cooking, but with easy access to the shops when you do! This is in addition to the beautiful cliffs which again are within easy walking distance.

We have just returned from a week in this cottage, and would definitely return again. The cottage was clean with all the amenities you would want. On our arrival we were greeted by Simon the owner and in the cottage we received tea, coffee, milk, bread, local tea bread, and Guernsey cheese and butter - a lovely touch which makes you feel welcomed and means you don't have to rush out to get some food. There are bikes that you can use for all the family and toys the children can play with in the lovely big garden. The shops are 5 minutes walking distance and St Peter Port is 10 minutes on the bus. Simon was very helpful and friendly making the whole experience a very pleasant one. Would definitely go again.

Simon, the owner, is enthusiastic about the business and really wants to make your time in Guernsey as easy, relaxing and enjoyable as it can be.

There is a 'welcome pack' when you arrive - bread, butter, local cake, eggs and milk. We were not expecting this at all.

'The little things' that make a holiday easier - which don't cost a great deal for the owner to provide, but which make a great difference and which, in my experience, are almost never provided - are provided. You do not have to think about buying toilet rolls, or tin foil, or cling film, or washing up liquid. The linen is changed weekly (and is beautifully soft); the towels are changed weekly, too. We have a young baby and used our own 'nappy system'. Lena (see below) worked this out, disposed of the pending nappies and left us extra bags- all un-asked.

The garden area - which we understand has been newly created and will be developed - is fabulous for young children. There is space for them to run, games for them to play and toys (including scooters and bikes in a range of sizes) for them to borrow.

Simon is around most days and is always willing to assist if anything comes up. Lena the Cleaner (!) is accommodating and thorough and very friendly.

We really can't recommend these cottages highly enough. If we come to Guernsey again - and we almost certainly will - I am sure we will be looking to stay here again.

A very plesant stay in the Ellingham cottages. We stayed there for two weeks and found the accomodation to be very good. The cottage was equiped with all the essential things that you would have at home and additionally, they gave us free coffee, tea, sugar etc, which are all nice touches to make your stay that little bit better. The cottages were clean and modern with regular fresh towels and bedding. There were a couple of minor issues with the tv stations and one of the windows but they were rectified very quickly once mentioned. The staff were very helpful and always very pleasant.
The cottages are in a beautiful location and we were able to potter about at a leisure such as to the cliff paths and local pubs/restaurantes. The cottages are also very near to the bus stop.
Overall, a great stay and are highly recommended. We would love to stay there again.

We recently stayed at Ellingham Cottages and would highly recommend them! Lovely cottages with everything you need, very nicely decorated and laid out. The cottages are in a great location and everything is easily accessible. The owner and staff were fantastic, really helpful and thoughtful. Plus, the most comfortable bed ever!
