Had a lovely week at the cottage in early June made extra special by the sunny weather. Cottage was well located in a peaceful area, just a short walk into town that had plenty of interesting shops and places to eat, plus Co Op supermarket. Cottage itself needs a bit of TLC to get it back to a really good...

Management response:

Thanks for your feedback and review. We are just waiting for a gap in bookings after a very busy few months to carry out a repaint and lay a new carpet in the lounge. This will be completed in the next few weeks.

Our second stay at Ammonite Cottage and delighted again. Nick and Dorothy went out of their way to make our stay as memorable as possible. Welcome bottle of red and basket of logs on arrival, home-made cake on our second day! Wi-Fi was fast and the log fire the best we've experienced. We've already booked our week for next year!

Management response:

Thanks for your great review Alan - we are delighted you enjoyed your stay again and choose to come back to Ammonite for your holidays. Hope to see you again soon.
