Guestbook comments from the manager

We have recently returned from our fifth stay at Mineshop, and I cannot stress enough just how heavenly this place is for me and my three dogs. Nothing ever disappoints in this beautiful, peaceful homely setting, not even the weather! The cottages are always spotlessly clean and well maintained. The owners live on site and are relaxed and easy-going, but also helpful without being at all intrusive. We will most definitely be returning as soon as we can.

We have just returned from an exquisite stay in Mineshop. My children had a lovely time playing in the stream, the fields and the woods. They helped feed the pigs and chickens everyday and morning collected eggs for our breakfast! We all enjoyed the walk to the beach, and enjoyed trying to surf, we caught crabs and fish in the rockpools and built sand castles. There is so much to do, it was lovely to be out of the city.

A great place to retreat

  • 5 of 5

I've just returned from a weekend stay. The cottage was comfortable and spotlessly clean and a perfect location for walking the many public footpaths around the area. Lots of woodland walks as well as coastal paths. I didn't expect anything else but rain in November so went well equipped with my wellies. I will definitely be returning, perhaps in the spring or summer when the trees and hedgerows are in full bloom. A really beautiful place to stay and certainly deserves 5 stars

Family break with the hound!

  • 5 of 5

We first stayed in Mineshop Holiday Cottages in 2012 and have returned every summer since. We have two children currently aged 9 and 6 who enjoy the freedom of the meadows and the stream with Fifi our hound.

We love wondering through the valley to the beach, finding shells and sea glass and catching (or trying to!) fish and crabs in the rockpools. The Coombe Barton Inn overlooks the sea and serves lovely food and real ale which my husband loves!

The accomodation is always clean, well equipped and due it the location the balcony is such a sun trap. We enjoy sitting outside listening to the birds whilst watching the children (and the hound) play football in the meadow.

We can't recommend Mineshop Holiday Cottages highly enough to anyone of any age; it is refreshing to take time out from the everyday hustle and bustle to spend time as a family and relax.
