3rd VISIT - JUST PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5

Our third stay in this gorgeous cottage and still no disappointments! Everything you need for a cosy relaxing holiday. The two beaches within walking distance are amazing and just like the owner told me "like stepping back in time". The Dolphin Inn is under new ownership and offers great food. We shall be booking again!

Lovely, peaceful cottage in gorgeous location

  • 5 of 5

I loved staying here! This cottage is clean and comfortable as well as being very charming. The cottage itself is really clean and has everything you need- even some handy reading glasses as I forgot mine! it is set in a very quiet part of the village next to the pub and the church; it's clear that not a lot has changed for at least a couple of hundred years. It's a great place for exploring the area, whether on foot or in the car. Beautiful...I will be back!

Cosy & Comfortable

  • 4 of 5

Just the place for piece and quite especially for a couple, freindly bar staff right next door, only drawback is shops but full instructions are given to the nearest shop just 2 miles away which is only a 10min drive, lots of beaches to travel to and places to visit, the cottage itself very cosy with comfortable beds and an original log burning fire, will consider a return visit.

Home from home!

  • 5 of 5

We have had three enjoyable stays at the cottage during the winter months and will certainly return in the future.

The booking process is simple and straight forward by phone or online with a fast response from the Owner.

Old Hundredth is well presented and always very clean, warm and cosy. It's located in a lovely village with an excellent pub serving good meals on one side and an ancient and popular church on the other side. The cottage is near to local beaches and walks, and the shops are not too far away by car.

The picturesque village the friendly locals and the Olde Worlde Dolphin Inn with it's genial hosts next door all made for a very enjoyable weekend away.

Just Perfect !

  • 5 of 5

Old Hundredth was just perfect for what we were looking for. Cozy, clean and well positioned in heart of village . Ideal location for local beaches and visitor attractions in this area. Stunning scenery, beautiful rolling landscapes, golden unspoilt beaches along heritage coastline, charming 16th Inn with great food and genial hosts right on our doorstep. Really lovely time had by the whole family.
