We were warmly welcomed by a lovely lady called Carol in Number 1 who greeted us upon arrival and handed us our keys for our stay. Waiting for us in the cottage was a wonderful cream tea which was much appreciated after our long journey.( I also loved the little touch of a card from Carol as an additional welcome).
So, let me start with the negatives ... well, in all honesty there aren't any! From the moment we booked with Colin everything ran smoothly. The only downside is that there isn't a phone signal in the cottage for the phone addicts but there is an excellent Wifi service (although a landline is supplied for emergencies). But honestly, with views so lovely as the ones you will have here you will soon find yourself not looking down at a screen but sitting in the window chair staring out at the stunning sea views and sunsets and just generally watching the world go by.
As someone who is used to packing everything including the kitchen sink (well almost!) as I did, don't bother! Everything you could possibly need is here! From a double sided make up mirror, hairdryer, dog crate, windbreakers, all the essentials (!) this place has them!
The cottage is clean, well kept and very quaint making you feel right at home.
I adored the old Rayburn that has been left in the kitchen, although not working now there is a fully functional electric cooker which is perfect. An abundance of crockery glasses and cutlery fills the cupboards. Upstairs the beds are so comfy and the rooms are spacious. The bathroom has a good shower and is clean and airy. Outside you can sit on the front if the weather is fine and digest the tranquillity of the place. At the rear of the cottage is a patio which is a little sun trap in the morning and a nice place to have a cup of tea and ponder on what you will be doing that day.
The walks from here are truly fabulous, and even my dog who doesn't really "do" long walks did not want to stop as we took the Morte Point walk from just across the road as we did every day during our stay. A walk down the hill and you are straight into Woolacombe where it is a must to try one of the Cornish Pasties from the shop there!
For those liking a bite to eat and drink you have two pubs within minutes up the road in the village The Chichester and the Ship Aground both places we visited and both serve fabulous food drink and have a really friendly atmosphere.
Truly a lovely place to stay and I hope one day I can return to stay here if its not booked up!
A charming little but well equipped cottage. Very warm welcome from Carole with delicious cream tea waiting for us. Beautiful sea views, stone throw from beach and from wonderful coastal path. We walked to Lee and had a delicious lunch at Smugglers cottage and walked back to Mortehoe where we had tea at the table in the cottage garden. The most perfect day! Despite the inclement weather, we enjoyed every minute at Ada s cottage. Communication with Colin prior to arrival was excellent and very accomodating
From the efficient booking with Colin to the lovely meet and greet with Carol, a truly delightful stay at this cottage with wonderful sea views. Everything you could need for a home from home stay, with a pretty village and a couple of pubs for eating out right on your door step. So many coastal walks, would recommend this walk: down the hill into Woolacombe, along the beach to Putsborough and follow the coastal path to Baggy Point for wonderful views. On your return a stop in Woolacombe before climbing the hill back to the cottage and hopefully like us you will be rewarded with a spectacular sunset. Would definitely love to return.
2nd time me and my wife has stayed at the cottage. Another fantastic time at this lovely place. Greeted by the lady at no 1 and cream teas on arrival. Will be definitely visiting again next year
Lovely cozy cottage with the most stunning views over the sea and baggy point. Have been staying in area over 20 years and location can not be beaten for view and access to coastal walks with your dog. Or to nearby surf beaches. Carol is a real gem and made us very welcome.cream tea waiting for us was a lovely surprise. Real value for money. Thank you for a great stay. Will definitely be coming again if we can.
