The Anchorage was perfect for us as a family of four with a dog with grandparents in the campsite near the beach. The location is ideal, the house itself could not have been better with a beautiful and enclosed garden and it being really well equipped inside. Would definitely recommend.

Mrs W,

Absolutely fabulous holiday cottage. Large, with plenty of space for the up to 6 guests it can accommodate. VERY clean and VERY comfortable. Great enclosed garden for dogs, although if you have a small dog just keep an eye on them when they go between the house and garden. Even with wire strung under the 5 bar gate they could still slip through. But honestly...that is the ONLY slightly negative thing I can find to say about The Anchorage. They take their Covid responsibilities seriously and we did not feel at all compromised. Really quiet area but only 1/4-1/2 a mile from Putsborough beach either over fields or by car and which is dog friendly and like the property, very clean and has excellent toilet and lovely cafe facilities. We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday and can not wait to revisit The Anchorage in September, fingers crossed with family this time! Thank you Rob for a great cottage and holiday.

Mr J,
