For our family it was a perfect location great house,great beach big open sky,the small village had every thing you need for beach holiday great small shop and a couple of eating places,eating meals in the conservatory overlooking the beach and sea fantastic Reviewed by Trevor4.4★Sep 2023 "Wonderful location." Property clean and equipped with pretty much everything we needed (sharp kitchen knife would help tho'). We've been coming to Windy Ridge for decades now and p!an to keep on coming. Lovely family ho!iday, thank you Reviewed by Roberta5.0★Aug 2023 "On arrival and inspection the bathrooms and kitchen were clean to high standard Bedding and towels provided were also clean and property was well equipped with regards to crockery/cutlery etc for self catering holiday." There was even a collection of beach toys available for use in outside shed. The owner/caretaker went above and beyond when we had a minor problem with the shower.(thank you). However our holidays were spoiled somewhat by the invasion of what we believe to be pollen beetles on a daily basis. Literally thousands in the conservatory and we couldn't dine at the table in there or leave any food or drink out because of them as they pretty much covered everything. It wasn't nice and pretty inconvenient if truth be told having to constantly clean them away. Note there is a brush in the understairs cupboard but we couldn't find a dustpan. As for the steps at the back there is a lot but they are manageable as long as luggage etc not too heavy. The view and proximity to the beach is what this property is all about and it is without doubt spectacular however for our family the bugs spoiled it. Reviewed by Robert4.1★Aug 2023 "This is a lovely property and is in a stunning location." Good level of equipment and would only suggest a dustpan (we couldn't find one) to help with clearing up the sand as you can walk straight out onto a beautiful beach through the sand dunes. We were aware of the steps to the property before we went and these didn't prove to be big problem. Reviewed by Janet4.7★Aug 2023 "Windy ridge is perfectly situated high on the Dunes." The property was comfortable and suited us all very well. On arrival all rooms appeared well presented and clean, especially the kitchen bedrooms and bathrooms. The living room however had crisps, hula hoops and maltesers under and around the sofas and a cap between the sofa cushions, which was disappointing. On the whole though this is a lovely place to stay, particularly with excitable grandchildren who love the beach. Reviewed by Susan4.1★Aug 2023 "Loved the position of the cottage, it has fantastic views of the sea." The only downside for me are the steep metal steps up to the cottage at the rear of the property. I found it hard to carry my suitcase and food up the steps because of my age and fitness. Reviewed by Susan5.0★Jun 2023 "Sublime." Reviewed by Susan5.0★Jun 2023 "We had a fantastic holiday, the property is in a great setting with lovely views of the sea and sand dunes." We enjoyed our holiday so much we've booked a two week stay for next year, we did this before we came home. Reviewed by Linda5.0★May 2023 "The cottage is in a lovely position overlooking the beach and sea beyond." The conservatory makes a lovely quiet place to sit at any time of the day. The cottage is very clean and very well looked after by the owners. It has electric heating which keeps it nice and cosy. The owners have thought of everything including comfortable beds, linen and also furniture downstairs. The kitchen is very well equipped. Reviewed by Marion5.0★Mar 2023 "This is our second visit." We love it and will be back. That view is something else! Thank you very much for such a wonderful holiday (despite storm something or other) Reviewed by Rebecca5.0★Mar 2023 "Very good property" Reviewed by Akash1.3★Feb 2023 "Second visit of the year!" ! Despite the freezing weather, it was lovely and warm in Windyridge, and it was really nice waking up to the sunrise through the front bedroom window! We’ll be back again next year :) Reviewed by Lloyd5.0★Nov 2022 "Excellent property." High standards throughout and have already rebooked for next year. Reviewed by Dave5.0★Oct 2022 "3 generation stay at Windyridge." Very comfortable and we'll equipped house. Amazing location with breathtaking sea views from the conservatory and main bedroom. Plenty to see and do in the area. Loved being able to walk every day on the beach. Would highly recommend. Reviewed by Susan5.0★Oct 2022 "We have been coming to Windyridge every year (except during lockdowns) for over 30 years." It is perfect for small children and when those small children grow up it is perfect for their small children. We had 4 generations this year (great Granny only came for the day). Lovely sandy beach and Sandi Toksvig was there filming. The sea was wonderfully warm. Very comfortable beds and well equipped kitchen. The conservatory is perfect for enjoying the scenic surroundings as well as cosying up in the evenings playing games. To be able to stay a stone's throw from the beach is very special - a hot chocolate is never far away after beach games and swims. And the conservatory is great for rainy days playing games - you still get the sea view! We sang a verse of God Save Our Gracious King in the sea. The only downside is that we have to wait a year for another visit. Reviewed by Roberta5.0★Sep 2022 "An absolutely beautiful house, set in stunning surroundings!" We have been coming to Windyridge for many years, since my Grandparents found it! It’s nice to be able to come back again, loads of memories! All the improvements that have been made are certainly worth it, it’s lovely and warm, with everything you need. The views from both sides of the house are amazing, we spent a fair bit of time just sitting in the conservatory looking out at the sea. There is loads of wildlife too, there was a deer in the garden one evening! Not to mention several rabbits. If your really lucky you get to watch foxes playing among the dunes too. It’s worth getting up really early for the sunrise too, and the sunsets are equally awesome! It’s a place I could stay for ages and never get bored of it. Thank you for letting us come back, we loved it, and hope to be back again! Reviewed by Lloyd5.0★Jun 2022 "Lovely holiday." We particularly enjoyed the sight and sound of the sea from the conservatory and main bedroom, especially as the weather was "mixed". Even enjoyed a flypast from the Red Arrows directly overhead as they headed off to see the queen! Reviewed by Alison5.0★May 2022 "Location of cottage was amazing." We are hoping to return next year. Reviewed by Joyce5.0★May 2022 "What a wonderful property!" You certainly can't beat the view, across the dunes and beach and out to sea. It's a very comfortable and comforting place, with a lovely homely feel, plenty of seating and a fully equipped kitchen. It's obviously very well loved and looked after, and kept very clean, with good quality linen and towels, plus various basic provisions provided such as handwash, toilet roll, tea/coffee/milk. It was also much warmer than we'd expected (albeit a sunny week in April). The 30 steps up from the parking area could understandably be a challenge for some, but my partner's 92-year old mother felt that the view was worthy of the effort! and managed them slowly but safely each day when we went out. Once in, she used the ground floor bedroom, toilet and shower room for ease. The main bedroom is extremely spacious and also enjoys the fantastic sea view. The rear patio is actually quite a lovely little suntrap too, with a view out over the caravan park into the countryside beyond, and a must-see for sunsets. Windyridge is in a blissfully quiet area, and often you'd feel you have the whole beach to yourself, except perhaps for an occasional glimpse of a couple of horses out on their daily gallop! Reviewed by Catherine5.0★Apr 2022 "The position/view is spectacular and the place was very clean and is aptly named." We had a wonderful relaxing time in all weathers - sun, wind and even snow! Reviewed by Ruby5.0★Mar 2022 "The property is set in a beautiful location with fantastic views." It was a shame that a number of the doors didn't latch as the weather was chilly and therefore the warmth soon disappeared when the door wasn't propped shut! Otherwise we had a lovely stay. Reviewed by Martin4.1★Mar 2022 "We loved this cottage." It was spotlessly clean, beautifully presented, warm and cosy on cold nights, well-equipped, quiet, peaceful and last but not least- has the best views you can possibly imagine of the North Sea. You can hear the sea pounding in the conservatory and when you're falling asleep at night. It was just great. Thank you very much! Reviewed by Rebecca5.0★Feb 2022 "Wow! House envy!" A fabulous location, perched on the dunes, with direct access onto the beach. The view from the large, comfortable conservatory is quite stunning, particularly watching the glorious sun rises. The whole house is well-presented, beautifully warm for a winter visit, and the beds most comfortable. Never having been on the Lincolnshire coast before, I feel privileged to have stayed in one of the best houses, in one of the best spots. Oh, and it is worth the walk (about 1 hour) along the beach to the North Sea Observatory for a superb breakfast with wonderful views. The steep steps up and down from the house to where the car is parked can be a challenge when loading/unloading the car, particularly for we older folk, but doable. Thanks to the owners for a beautifully presented property. Reviewed by Anthony5.0★Jan 2022 "Stunning location." Clean, well-equipped cottage. Would certainly return again. Reviewed by Angela4.4★Oct 2021 "Overall we enjoyed our stay at Windyridge." The location was ideal for our main requirements, which were for somewhere peaceful, relaxing and close to the beach. Reviewed by Chris4.1★Sep 2021 "Had a lovely stay at this cottage, very clean and had everything we needed." The location on the beach is fabulous and we had excellent weather. One point that was never mentioned was the fact that you needed to climb a full staircase of outdoor steps to access the property, my mum is 69 and found this quite challenging. There was no prior warning to these steps! I think this should be told to people before they book as anyone with mobility issues would struggle to enter the property. Reviewed by Nichola4.4★Jul 2021 "Spent a brilliant week at Windyridge." The house was so welcoming, very comfortable, it had a wonderful view and had everything you needed including milk and a bottle of fizz in the fridge. There were 2 pubs a short walk away and the food at Popas bar was lovely. We will definitely stay again.
