Garden full of life

The location of the cottage is great with all local amenities and buses very near-by. The rooms are great and facilities inside the cottage are top class. There is a big playground area towards the back and you can make friendship with the rabbits there who do visit the ground on a regular basis. There are some near-by walks to the bays which are very scenic and excellent for fitness lovers.

Wonderful Stay

Ellingham Cottages are comfortable and well equipped, with a fantastic garden. We were in a superior cottage which had a lovely terrace with BBQ, and our cottage was very child friendly with bed guards, cots and child plates and cutlery all provided. Fiona and Simon are welcoming and went out of their way to help us.

Wonderful Stay

A yummy addition to the stay

Everyone was extremely friendly and helpful. We had a fantastic time and the cottages have all the amenities we required to help make it a really pleasent stay. This is the 3rd time of staying and addition of the BBQ areas at the back of our cottage is fantastic.
