Admirals cottage july 2019
Excellent holiday many thanks. A few minor issues of which i believe you are aware,such as refuse collection why the bin is not numbered, no up to date calendar for collection dates. Also the stair handrail,and guttering to the rear of the property need attention. We would also suggest an upgrade to the hair dryer. This is not intended as a grumble,as we had a wonderful time.
Admirals Cottage, South Street, Yarmouth I o W
Admirals Cottage is an excellent holiday cottage and we heartily recommend it to others. We look forward to possibly availing ourselves of its usage in the future.
A great cottage
We found this cottage quiet, clean and well equipped. Perfect for our half term in Yarmouth. The location is great and this really suited us as a family with school age kids. Hope to visit again.
Another stay at Admirals Cottage
Again we have had another enjoyable stay at Admirals cottage. We did see a problem with the detached guttering upstairs at the back of the property which we reported to the main office and the downstairs toilet which they thanked us for reporting and they would send the maintenance people to sort it out.
Really lovely gin fuelled weekend!
Perfect location and really central for parking. With the bus stop at the end of the road (£15 for a 48 hour unlimited bus ticket) we were able to head off to Newport connecting us to anywhere on the island.
Lucky enough to have head about the Real Ale Festival and steam railway in advance so got to make the most of that by having no driving to do!
Admirals Cottage is really well equipped so cooking a decent breakfast wasn’t an issue. Comfortable chairs in the kitchen meant we stayed up late chatting, playing cards and trying to guess the intro on the random radio channel we found.
It was a perfect getaway for 4 friends but would equally go back with children.
