The Experience

This stone-built fisherman’s cottage has been gazing south across the harbour for 300 years. Boats bob and the chink of rigging mingles with the water lapping at the sea wall; Under Milk Wood and Moby Dick were filmed here. Inside are cool terracotta tiles warmed by rugs, cheery walls and wood-burning stoves – just the thing after a day striding the coastal path, which passes behind the cottage. The more modern kitchen is in a recent extension at the back, the dining room is at the front and gets the harbour views. Bedrooms too overlook the water, the gentle susurration of the sea drifting in through open windows. Both rooms have a bright, just-washed feel in stripped wood, blue, sea-green and white. The single is fit for a child and has fun yellow walls and gingham linen. Upstairs you’ll also find a bathroom and, downstairs, a wet room to wash away the last stubborn grains of sand. Dangle your toes in the estuary as the tide comes in, venture further to discover this beautiful area.

We have been staying with Quay Street Cottages every year for the last 12 years. Every year we have returned to lovely Lower Town. It’s a peace-of-mind-experience where you can relax and unwind in such a beautiful environment, far from the madding crowd. Number 33 is our personal favourite. It is a superb cottage. Nicho and Philly are great hosts, always available to help and advise. We have booked to return in 2021 and are looking forward to our sons joining us once again.

David, Surrey

In the midst of a crazy year, our two weeks on the quay in August 2020 was medicine for the soul. A perfect combination of fishing, boating, crabbing, walking and above all, a blissful cottage to retreat to.

Amanda, Worcestershire

We have had wonderful holidays in this lovely cottage set with magnificent views over the harbour at Lower Town. Having stayed in many self catering cottages over the years this is undoubtedly the best equipped we have had the pleasure to rent. The kitchen is well appointed and all the rooms are spacious and comfortable. It as the benefit of an upstairs bathroom complemented with a downstairs shower room and toilet. The quay is a lively friendly location with a Café and also a yacht club which welcomes visitors.

Barbara, Gloucestershire

Can’t believe how perfect this place is - it beats every other cottage we’ve stayed in. We’ve all had a wonderful week and will return. Thanks so much - see you again!
