  • "All very good."

    Well equipped cottage with plenty of extras. Great location for coastal walking. Host contacted us before arrival offering any information needed.

  • "This cottage is a hidden gem."

    It is spotlessly clean with everything you need. The views out of the windows are stunning and the location peaceful and tranquil - just what we needed! We have already booked a return visit.

  • "We liked being close to the sea, enjoying excellent weather, and the friendly chats with visitors making their way to the adjacent beach for swimming and kyaking."

    The only things to watch for in the cottage are the step down from the stairs, the low threshold of the front door, and the floor in the main bedroom - as is typical in old cottages, it undulates somewhat, creating a tendency to feel a little tipsy even when completely sober!

  • "A lovely location & nice holiday property to stay at for the week."

    Clean & tidy on arrival. Parking at times was an issue & it would have been more convenient if a parking permit was included in the cost of the booking as parking cost an extra £35 for the week & as it was public parking trying to get a space at times was challenging as it was busy during the week we stayed there. The facility has good added extras inc washing machine, iron/ironing board, hairdryer etc. Some items weren’t listed on the booking specification so it would have been helpful to know about these items as I wouldn’t have brought certain things from home otherwise. We were welcomed with scones, clotted cream, jam & milk which was a nice treat. The property had a shared garden which was a bonus. Fortunately the adjoining cottage wasn’t being utilised during our stay so we had extra space & noise wasn’t an issue. It would have been nice if the grass had been mowed before we arrived as when it was (half way through our stay) the garden was far more accessible, allowing us to utilise the bbq. On the whole it was a very pleasant stay & I would recommend to others!

  • "We had a lovely time."

    The place is idyllic and cosy. If you are paying the £35 for the weekly carpark, it needs to be in £2 coins.

  • "We have recently returned from a lovely week in Virginia Cottage."

    The cottage is very well equipped and comfortable and quiet. We were 4 adults and the space was adequate. Convenient location for discovering this lovely area. Hopefully we will return.

  • "The cottage itself was great and the cream tea and milk was very welcome on arrival."

    The property has a washing machine but oddly no iron or ironing board. Portwrinkle is a popular beach location but the beach is fine shale and not sand and therefore possibly not so good for young children, although hundreds of. rock pools will appeal to older ones! Also, while the photos might suggest the sea is just at the other side of the road there is a steep drop beyond the wall. The South West Coastal Path passes within 2-3 mins which makes it an ideal location for walkers.

    Thank you for your feedback and we are glad you enjoyed your holiday. There is an iron and ironing board in the cupboard for guests to use and so we are sorry that you missed it. Property Owner

  • "Virginia Cottage West is situated perfectly for a couple's retreat or walking holiday,."

    It is right on the sea front and the views are beautiful. The cottage was clean and well equipped. In keeping with the age it has no central heating so there are heaters which were fine for us 2, the hot water took a bit of working out but when we fed this back to the owners they responded. The gentleman who takes care of the property made contact with me on the morning of the booking and left us a cream tea and milk which was very kind and welcoming, he was friendly and helpful and available for the weekend if we needed anything. If you were taking children there and it wasn't summer weather it may be a bit chilly inside and we could hear the conversation of the couple next door in Virginia Cottage East as the partition wall is thin. That could be an issue if one side had early rising little ones and the other didn't! But as we went away without our children for a weekend this was not a problem and we thoroughly enjoyed the peace of the village, walking and losing track of the time! It was a wonderful last minute treat.
