    This was ideal for a short break. We liked being able to park off road. The cottage was quiet, clean and cosy. It was great to be able to walk from the cottage to the beach, and we thought the beach cafe was really good. We also enjoyed having a pub within walking distance, and a convenience store which seemed to stock most things.

    Ruby Gem cottage is a warm and charming character cottage that is ideal for the local amenities and is excellent if you have a dog as all flooring is laminated. Having the bathroom downstairs takes a little getting used to but on the whole not a major problem.

    A lovely spacious cottage in a great location , our 2nd time in winterton because of this , our dog loves the walks and the beach and dog friendly pub . The negative points , No WiFi , this is important if you need it for holiday info , ie maps , local interest , petrol stations and tickets . The cottage was also let down buy the cleaner the bed linen was fine , but dust in the bathroom , hair balls under bed , fat on bottom of oven and only one toilet roll for the week . Now the nights are drawing in roller blinds would be a good idea for privacy as having a bath at night with the light on while being over looked by the properties at the end of the garden is a no no. Plus points great location , off road parking , spacious accommodation , dog friendly

    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.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for your feedback. We are glad you enjoyed your stay at Rubygem. Apologies for the lack of cleanliness of the floor, have spoken to our cleaning company manager who also apologised and has spoken to the staff concerned. Hopefully this will not be the case in the future for our customers on arrival, as we are very proud of our high scores overall for cleanliness of the cottage. Thank you once again, and we hope this incident didn’t spoil your holiday in anyway.

    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.
