|Minimum Stay||3 - 7 nights|
This stunning chocolate box thatched cottage has recently been lovingly converted into an extremely high standard holiday home for couples, groups of friends and families. It set on a generous 1 acre site affording good outside space. Given that some of the site is somewhat hilly, a smaller enclosed area has been created to provide a level garden for children with a patio and seating for leisurely afternoons, a glass of wine or alfresco dinners. There is plenty of space for both sunbathing and dining under the stars and from Easter to the end of September a large barbecue is available.
Old Maids Cottage is on the village roadside (the lane just serves Lee Bay and doesn't go anywhere else!) but is fully enclosed with protection for privacy and to ensure that young children or dogs do not wander onto the lane. There is also off-road parking for 2 cars.
The garden is mainly laid shrubs and pot plants with plenty of outside seating.
There is a really good pub, The Grampus Inn just 100m down the road that serves good food and the cove at Lee Bay is only a short walk down the quiet lane and is great for kids.
Dogs are welcome at £50 for 1 and £75 for 2.
“We had a wonderful stay at OMC. Our family got together from London, Germany and the USA to meet our newest member. The cottage was the perfect family retreat.”

“Our family has been coming on holiday to Lee for over 100 years. We’ve been so pleased to see OMC rescued and restored. Having stayed in most of the holiday lets here over the years we were delighted by the luxury we found in OMC.”

“We had a lovely stay in the cottage. We loved how the beach was so close and we could swim in it. Thank you. Fantastic stay we will be back next year!”

“We waited all year for our return visit to OMC and were not disappointed. We will really miss the peace and quiet. The children loved the rock pooling, fishing and surfing to name but a few. Two weeks was not long enough! Spotlessly clean too. Can't wait to return next year.”

“We loved the cottage very beautifully done. Beach is great despite being rocky - we walked round to the next bay. Grampus Inn very welcoming … Lee is a perfect oasis of quiet - we loved it.”
June 2014, Sparks Family, Herts
Excellently situated 15" from Lee Beach. Very well equipped and to high standards. Owners have done a very good job of restoring this cottage & making it into a very cherning and cosy location for a family holiday.
Lovely spot, well appointed interior, comfy bed, superb shower
Please buy some new kitchen knives, you can't cut jelly with those.
Had an issue with heating on our first night there. The cottage was cold on arrival and the heating was far from effective even with the woodburner going also
Would have been a good idea to turn the heating on prior to arrival, as understandably the place had been unused for a while .
My overriding concern is that despite notifying you of the situation on the Friday evening, NOTHING was done about it at the time, or subsequently.
We had been told that Nicky would be coming round to replenish the log basket but he made no appearance. An apology would have been some consolation, but basically there was zero customer service, even when I called in to your offices on the way home. Poor show . My Holiday marketing have failed...miserably
The Old Maids Cottage is all we were anticipating and, even, a tad more...
