    Lovely’beach themed’ cottage. For the price parts were quite tired in terms of decoration and floor was very dirty. I had to mop the floors when I first got there as our socks/ slippers were filthy on the bottoms. I do not think that the floors had been mopped before we got there.

    Ruby Gem is a great cottage in a fantastic location. The Cottage catered for all our needs and was very well presented throughout. The beach nearby is a lovely beach and very Dog friendly as is the cottage. There is a brilliant pub just a stride away from the cottage which serves amazing food at very reasonable prices and dogs are allowed throughout, this was very important to us as we involve our little dog in all we do on holiday. The village itself is very nice and the local people are so friendly. We will definitely stay at Ruby Gem again in the future all in all it was a fantastic holiday we would highly recommend this cottage and the location.

    We had a great visit and we will be back. Daisy our dog is still sulking as she loved being on the beach every day. I think you need a dog to be allowed in the pub as there seem to be more dogs. Didn't like there was not enough hot water for a bath that's all. Did not sleep well and the bathroom is downstairs which I did not like that's my moans if I had to.

    We had a wonderful week away! Weather you want stay local and enjoy the local pub grub ( Fishermans return ), or take in the scenic beach views and see the seals, Ruby Gem is a fantastically placed cottage in the lovely village of Winterton and both have everything you need for a super relaxing holiday.

    The perfect cottage in the perfect location. The beach, shops and pub are all close by. The cottage and village are dog friendly and welcoming. With a log fire to snuggle up in front of in an evening, you really couldn't ask for more.

    Rubygem was a lovely cottage. It was very comfortable and clean. Great location. Very central for everything. We were lucky to see seals on the beach. Chippy nearby and pub offering great food. Welcome pack on arrival. We hadn't realised there was no upstairs loo so that might be the only reason we may not book again and the fumes from the oil fired central heating. The location was so amazing that we would probably still return.

    Disappointing, kitchen poorly equipped (no oven proof dishes or potato peeler), one of the single beds had springs almost through mattress as a previous visitor commented and we had to keep kitchen window open to remove oil smell from heating system. Such a shame no WiFi or O2 reception, made planning trips hard.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for your comments. The single mattress has since been replaced and we will place a vegetable peeler in the cutlery draw when we are next at the property. Have also had the boiler serviced as we do annually, so this should cure the issue with oily smell. There is an oven proof dish in the double cupboard next to the oven, maybe it had been pushed to the back of the cupboard, as you couldn’t find it. We do not advertise Wi-Fi at the cottage as when we tried to get it installed, we encountered lots of issues with the installation so in the end gave up, and as for the phone signal, we are sorry, but this is out of our hands. We hope that these issues didn’t spoil your stay too much.
