Elma Cottage is a beautiful period cottage set in a tranquil location. It is clean and well maintained and is perfect for those wanting to "step off" and relax for a week.Mr Martin Pratt - 23rd July 2018
Outstanding cottage in fantastic location. Elma Cottage proved a perfect base for my family for a very sunny bank holiday weekend. Comfortable beds, sofas and a well equipped kitchen. Lots of space and (despite being warned it might not be great) no issues with WiFi which was put to good use by two boys. We used the brick BBQ and had a fantastic meal in the lovely sun trap of a garden (which our Labrador loved). A short walk to the delightful beach nearby and an even shorter walk to the local Pub where we enjoyed a good supper.The Rippon Party - 5th May 2018
well furnished and equipped and very safe garden for dogs.Miss Katie Bates - 29th April 2018

We were delighted with Elma Cottage. It is a beautiful cottage with everything we needed to make our stay comfortable, and spotlessly clean. We appreciated the complimentary biscuits and milk, and thought the vase of roses and astromeria was a really lovely touch.
