“Wonderful cottage, great location, perfect for our family”
Reviewed 1 April 2015 for a stay in March 2015

person found this review helpful

This cottage was booked for 2 nights so we could visit the Bloodhound Technical Centre in Avonmouth. Perfect location about 6 miles away on a new build estate by the marina. Allocated Parking right outside. Shops nearby and a great chip shop visited on the Saturday. Only points were a lack of toilet rolls and a squirt of washing up liquid, that's all! So if we're commenting about those small things it shows how nice the cottage was. May stay here again if we get to visit the Bloodhound factory again. Booking was simple, regular emails from owners, no issues at all. Wifi is a bit hit and miss, but again, not a major issue especially as you are right on the estuary with views of the lifeboat house.

“Great Location in a Marina setting”
Reviewed 21 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

We enjoyed our comfortable stay in a cottage which was conveniently located near to Bristol, Weston-super-Mare and South Wales. Can also recommend a visit to Glastonbury, Wells and Cheddar.
Good to have an allocated parking space too.
Our communication with the owner was excellent throughout.
Thank you.

“Super Modern Cosy Accommodation”
Reviewed 12 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

person found this review helpful

Firstly I would like to say the communication when booking is excellent. I had to change the dates last minute because of a death in the family and Tracee did everything she could to accommodate our needs. The accommodation is really cosy, warm and well equipped. We had our dog with us and he loved the walks along the Marina. There is a Morrisons and Costa Coffee just over the lock and Lidl and Waitrose 5 mins away. It is a lovely quiet location even with people passing by. The only negative I have and its not really a big deal, but people had parked on two occassions in our alloted parking space and it took awhile to find them and ask them to move, we will definately be booking again

“Great cotttage but too many problems with heating”
Reviewed 3 March 2015 for a stay in February 2015

We spent 10 days in this cottage in Portishead. A great site right beside the water BUT big issues with the boiler. We either had temperatures under 14 or over 30 degrees. Heating went on and off at odd times with the boiler clicking alarmingly all night. Owners said they called someone in to fix the boiler but by the time we left this was still not working correctly. When we asked for a reduction in the cost as we had struggled through a very cold week in Feb. they became abusive and accused us of wanting a freebie. If this property is to be let out in winter the heating must be sorted out. Also issues with electricity and we were plunged into darkness one night as no money had been put in the outside locked meter!

“Home away from home”
Reviewed 2 January 2015 for a stay in November 2014

We stayed in this lovely fishermans cottage while travelling from afar to view properties for sale and also to get to know the area better. We had our young son with us and the cottage was like a home away from home. It had all the kit so we could relax but also a great array of restaurants and supermarkets in walking distance and the indoor pool and leisure centre was fab. So glad we didn't book a hotel!
