Just returned from a weeks stay at this lovely cottage. House manager Claire is brilliant, she arranged airport transfer with local Taxi company JB's, and met us at villa on arrival, where she spent time explaining everthing & was very pleasant & helpful ( even stocked fridge with basics for breakfast on first day which was an unexpected & welcome surprise), we had only been in cottage for couple of hours when we had a problem with showers, we phoned Claire & she was back with us straight away, problem was sorted immediately. The cottage is beautiful, the kitchen is well equipped, & there is an excellant laundry room. Air con in bedrooms was a god send. Set in beautiful & well kept gardens, with a small but adequate pool, which was lovely to cool off in. Cottage is on hill ( very steep walk down oneside to Nelson dockyard, it does not take too long to walk back up but will gives legs a good workout), so be aware of this if booking. Walking down other way to marina/ pigeon beach is less challenging, as walk back up levels off in some parts, other way is uphill all the way.
May is very quiet in English Harbour, with very few visitors, & not all resturants open, we ate at dinner at Cloggy's & Trappas, both very good, and lunched at Bar B's, Seabreeze Cafe, Hot Hot Hot Spot, The Sailing Academy Cafe,and had very good takeaway pizzas from Pirates Pizza. There are limited shops in the area, the nearest big supermarket is a car ride away, but we managed to get breakfast supplies from Dockyard store,
eggs,bacon,sausage,bread beans,juice,milk, and frozen supplies for BBQ/pasta dinner, so cooked dinner at cottage twice(not much fresh foods available but they do good range of tinned veg/sauces.)
We did not do too much, as we did not rent car, but taxis are not too expensive, agree price when booking, did 1/2 day charter with Ondeck who are based in area, & did Stingray city which is amazing!! A must is the weekly Sunday night party at Shirley heights & the Friday night fish fry at The Copper & Lumber store, both reasonably price, & popular with locals/tourists.
This was our second visit to English harbour and was very different from last year as we visited in February, when it is very busy, and lots more bars/resturants are open. There are lots of brochures to cottages which list attractions/resturants,so use the phones provided by owners to phone ahead & check out opening hours.
A brilliant week, if you like quiet a great time to visit.
Loblolly cottage was a perfect location for our group to explore such a beautiful island. Everything you need, easy to be in and daily servicing left you feeling spoilt; perfect. The house manager was fabulous; informative, helpful and there if and when you needed. Pigeon beach on your doorstep, eat at Catherine's if you don't do anything else and take the round the island adventure trip. Starting to save for our next visit!
Loblolly Cottage is a true find. The cottage is gorgeous and well appointed. The pool is perfect for cooling off in and relaxing. The Guest Services Manager is always available and happy to help. The owners are great and even supply 2 local telephones so that we can all stay in touch during the day. Walking distance to the lovely Pigeon Beach, as well as all the bars/restaurants in Falmouth and English Harbour. We had the best time staying here and would love to stay again.
“PERFECT - Better than we could have imagined!”
Loblolly Cottage is the perfect place to stay. The cottage is GORGEOUS - even more beautiful than the photos - and offers everything you could ask for. The owners have truly thought of everything including 2 cell phones for guest use! Proximity to both beautiful Pigeon beach and restaurants/amenities on the harbour was ideal (5 min walk) although being at the cottage felt very private and secluded. The process of renting was seamless and our group (6 adults) was well taken care of starting with our greeting on arrival to the housekeeping service - everything we could have asked for was delivered! We will be back to Loblolly without a doubt!
