My girlfriend and I stayed at Trequean Barn from Monday to Friday at the beginning of October. Whilst the weather wasn't brilliant, the property was very comfortable and was in a good place for us to visit what we wanted to. The property itself is newly renovated to a high standard with underfloor heating, good kitchen facilities, HUGE bed. Sadly the week we arrived the log burner wasn't working properly due to the door, but would have only made a marginal improvement to our experience which was fab. The property is set a long way back from any main roads with access down a single track lan...more
Had a fabulous time. Lots of lovely touches when we arrived, including the food basket and delicious cream tea. Owners were very friendly and lovely to watch the animals being fed in the morning. A great environment and topped off with the present of some very tasty home baking when Fleur had made a cake.
Sunny side cottage was even better than expected a complete delight, we will be back! The garden in the evening resembled fairyland! Bed was extremely comfortable a proper home from home.
My husband and I stayed at this beautiful cottage in the beginning of September. It is a lovely old Cornish cottage with the traditional thick stone walls and a pretty little cottage garden with a small brook running through the centre of it. The cottage is about a 1 minute walk to the centre of Tintagel, with lots of pubs and shops. You are close enough to get to the heart of the village without being in the hubbub of it. The road from the cottage to the village centre is quite steep, but it is only for a 150 yds so not too bad and I'm not the fittest person! The cottage is part of an o...more
We visit Falmouth a few times a year as we have family who love there but had not had the pleasure of staying at Ash Barn before. It was perfect! We were only the second guests to have stayed since the COVID lockdown and the cleanliness was such a high standard we had no concerns at all. The garden was incredible and enjoyed thoroughly by our 2 yr old running around. The who place and location was perfect for us! It’s great we’ve now found somewhere we can always stay when we visit which suits us so well. The owner Jo is lovely and was on hand if we needed her at all. I would hesitate to recom...more
Was very enjoyable, very clean and beds were so comfortable. Well equipped and owner was very friendly and helpful.
Enjoyed our stay in this immaculate property, which was very well equiped and also had 2 nice private outside areas to enjoy. Very well placed to give easy access to north Cornwall and Devon, plus lovely walks from the property and close to the river and canal. Everything covid protected. Owners friendly and helpful; they live upstairs so on hand if need be. Very quiet and peaceful. Hoping to go again next year!
We have just returned from a fantastic week at Honeysuckle Cottage. The cottage was well equipped and very clean, perfect for a family of 4. Our kids loved being on the farm and made great friends with the ponies and pigs! Crackington Haven is a great little beach only about 10 minutes away. We also visited Trebarwith Strand (check tide times!), Widemouth Bay and Summerleaze in Bude. All great for surfing/bodyboarding with lifeguards. Tintagel and Boscastle are also worth visiting and there's a lovely coast path walk from Trebarwith to Tintagel of about 2-3 miles. All in all a great ...more
I booked starlight barns for a big family holiday for my mum's 50th, it was the perfect mix of us all spending time together while having our own space. The hosts couldn't be more accommodating and friendly. We will definitely be returning to starlight barns!
Excellent property to get away from it all. Great views, very peaceful modern well equipped cottage. Tom and Kath were Great Hosts; Excellent Welcome, very friendly and Helpful! Definitely going back
Pennare Barton Large Barn is a beautiful, spacious and extremely well-equipped property in a remote, tranquil location; it has everything you need for a very comfortable stay. The welcoming owners could not have been more responsive and helpful in making our stay so enjoyable. Finishing touches such as a vase of fresh flowers, biscuits and milk were very much appreciated. There is a large south facing and beautifully maintained garden and patio, ideal for relaxing in the sun. Situated near Nare Point on the Helford Estuary, it has access to a private beach, just 5 minutes walk away, and is id...more
The studio was just perfect for our week away. It was well appointed for exploring Cornwall and had everything we needed. The studio has been beautifully furnished and every convenience provided. The garden was also an excellent touch and a pleasure to have breakfast in on sunny days. The owners were a friendly and welcoming and we would definitely stay here again and thoroughly recommend.
Really super house on mousehole harbour side, spotless and very well equipped. It's great that local maps and books on local history and walks were in abundance...the house was also very warm and spacious...
Beautiful location, couldn't have asked for more. Cornwall Cottages were great to deal with; easy booking proceedure, super helpful and very quick to respond to any queries. Booking this before a pandemic hit made it all a bit daunting in a 'will we/ won't we be able to go' way but all ran very smoothly and the house was fantastic. Really well presented and a perfect location....what a view! The owners too were fabulous when we had some specific house queries and can't thank them enough for renting us their cottage. We will definitely be back.
Very clean house, very accommodating owner whom when we contacted her on bank holiday came and sorted our issue straight away. Plenty of space for all to have a room each. Great to have a water supple outside to wash wetsuits outside and have washed and dryer outside too. Very comfy house and felt like home from home. Will recommend to friends and will return
What a great week we had at Atlantic cottage can not find a negatives everything was there and the owners were excellent.defintley would book there again .great time
My family booked the two cottages to enable us all to spend Christmas together. On arrival we were delighted to find both cottages tastefully decorated with festive decorations and tables put together which meant we could fit 10 people around the table for the Christmas Dinner. The owners were welcoming as were the welcome packs. The cottages were well equipped we had everything we needed to enjoy our stay over the Christmas period. We thoroughly enjoyed our time at the cottages and would highly recommend a stay in this lovely part of the countryside.
We joined six old and dear friends for a gathering. Trevarrick was easy to find and beautifully placed very close to Falmouth and overlooking the harbour with spectacular views across to St Mawes and Roseland Peninsula. The accommodation is magnificent and spacious and perfectly equipped and made our week’s stay relaxing and extremely enjoyable. I would not hesitate to recommend Trevarrick to anyone.
This is the 2nd time we have stayed at 50 Zinc, it is a great appartment with bags of space and wonderful views. There are beaches galore and beautiful scenery on your doorstep, the only problem is you won't want to leave and go home !
A comfortable cottage located in peaceful countryside, but within easy reach of Bodmin, with patio doors opening on to a very pretty garden. The cottage is well equipped. The cottage owners were fabulous.
We were a group of 6 and found the lodge to be most comfortable with a lovely stylish home from home feel. The premium location of the Otter Lodge within the grounds of Rivermead was also wonderful. Overseeing the beautiful River Fowey, colourful flora and hearing the birds all the time was a real treat. The weather was inclement and so on some days we stayed in and enjoyed the lodge as it was so comfortable - especially the beds! The only thing that was a little frustrating was the WiFi. We had issues with connection and found it to be unreliable so it was a little inconvenient for the childr...more
Welcoming and attentive owners. Well-equipped and comfortable cottage. Peaceful location close to several beaches/coves and coastal walks. Added interest provided by a family of peacocks!
Hideaway has been decorated tastefully, the layout is perfect, everything has been thought through. The views are heavenly. The location is a 5 minute walk to the beach, so well located - quiet but central. The hosts are generous and friendly. We really enjoyed our stay and hope to return in the future.
Wonderful, beautifully decorated and equipped, house. Everything you could need for a great stay. Probably the best situated house in the village, with a perfect terrace overlooking the bay. 5 minutes walk to the shop and pub.
We had a beautiful stay here, the location was for us the best we have found so far in 20 years of exploring Cornwall. The cottage is the sweetest, cosiest, fun little place perched on the rocks above Portmellon beach. It is truly the stuff of dreams and I only wish we could have stayed here when the kids were younger as the imagination runs wild as an adult! Romantic doesn't come close, we love it so much it is hard to recommend to others lol! We want to keep it secret but unfortunately we cannot rent Rock cottage all year round and we most definitely want Stuart and co. to make a success of ...more
We've just had one of the most wonderful family holidays at Ruan Dinas. A superb spot, lovely house which is of a high standard, fully equipped and couldn't have given us more. The house was lovely to be in, the gardens a real feature, the house being on the edge of the woods and by the quay worked really well, and our favourite place was on the deck down by the river next to the fire pit, either sunning ourselves or watching the sun go down and the fish jumping. This holiday home feels like you're tucked away from everything but at the same time with all the visitors to the quay and the messi...more
We have just spent the most wonderful 2 weeks at Roof Tops. The agency was extremely efficient and patient especially as it was just after the Lockdown was lifted! The barn and the garden was so comfortable and spotless, that we only left it for a few hours a day to explore the beautiful beaches and countryside. Thanks so much to Vicky and family for being great hosts. We left Cornwall with great memories and hundreds of photos!
We had an amazing week at Reevescott cottage. It's very cosy and equipped in all you can possibly think about. The location is great and the view is spectacular! We miss it a lot and will definitely be back.
After the disappointment of having to cancel all holidays this year we were feeling rather down, but then we found The Old Cider House! The house and gardens are absolutely delightful and the location is just perfect for exploring the coast both to the north and the south. The house was very well equipped and comfortable. Sam was very welcoming and made sure we had everything we could possibly need - the welcome pack and cider were an added bonus! This is a house we would definitely like to revisit. It is difficult to praise it highly enough.
Bellot Cottage is beautifully furnished, it's comfortable, it's warm and very clean. The owner is exceptionally welcoming and kind and nothing is too much trouble. It's well located for exploring the Lizard peninsular and western Cornwall. We cannot praise it highly enough. .
We have just spent a very enjoyable week staying at Swallows Barn at Trevadlock Manor. The accommodation was ideal for us and our friends consisting of a two bedroom property, with one double bed and a bedroom with two single beds. Access to the property was via a short wooden staircase. At the top of the staircase was a gate, which was ideal as we took our dog. The owners also provided a field which was fully enclosed and allowed us to exercise our dog without fear of him running off. We found the location of Trevadlock Manor ideal, being close (but not too close) to the A30, which allowed mo...more
What a lovely cottage, owners were lovely and very friendly, everything was excellent, would definitely stay again. The cottage was lovely and clean and set in beautiful surroundings. There was a little hamper to welcome us which I thought was a lovely touch
A very clean tidy and comfortable holiday let with the owners living next door who were helpful and on hand in any problems arose . The provision of some scones clotted cream and jam was a nice touch upon arrival even though we did not consume them straight away . The property had good facilities and all the usual utentials in the kitchen which were made full use of . There was a problem with the hot water supply in as much as the water was not very warm . A new immersion heater thermostat had been installed but it probably needed adjusting . The electric shower was excellent . Overall an e...more
We couldn’t believe our luck when we found what seemed to be the last dog friendly place for 2 in St Mawes. It looked lovely on the photos and it exceeded. We’ve stayed in St Mawes 5 times and this would be our first choice for future stays. The ok for customer service is aimed at Cornwalls cottages who I felt bombarded us with COVID emails that I felt could have been written in a friendlier manner. We are all in this together and whilst we understand the necessity and importance of the ‘rules’ there are less abrupt ways to impart it. The St Agnes village webpage is a good example of frien...more
Fantastic bungalow well presented in a excellent location . Needs some new mattresses and maybe move the gardener to Saturday as 6 hours on a Wednesdays can take a day out of your holiday if you want to use the lovely garden.
A lovely, beautifully appointed property with view of the sea from the rear. Easily situated to visit places of interest but essential to have a car. High spec decor and fittings throughout. Walks around The Lizard are especially beautiful.
Beautiful Lodge in such a peaceful location .... Spotlessly clean, comfortable beds, great layout for myself who has mobility issues...... Great location for visiting lots of places in Cornwall....... Wouldn’t hesitate in booking again
Cornwall is a very special place for us & our stay at Rose Lodge helped to make it more special. Fabulous !!!
Comfortable and well equipped for large gatherings- may not be suitable for people who are not very mobile due to the size and many stairs levels. Well located for the beautiful North Cornish coast and a short walk to a fantastic little local pub The Red Lion or a good long walk to the well known St Kew Inn. Highly recommended
Comfortable, well equipped apartment in a great location with a lovely view. Beds, bed linen and towels all top quality. We had a delightful holiday in our favourite place in Cornwall.
Perfect place to wind down. Enjoyed chatting to walkers and locals as they visited the beach each day.
We, a family of 4, stayed at Mohun cottage in the grounds of Bochym Manor. As we entered after a long drive fresh flowers filled the air and milk, tea and biscuits were in the kitchen. We had long beach days most days and to return to this cottage to relax, have dinner and the most comfortable good nights sleep was the icing on the cake. We visited some amazing coves, beaches and harbours all within 30 mins driving. Poldhu cove,(fantastic) is about 10 mins. We knew from the pictures that we had booked a good place, but as we entered we were still amazed at the quality of the cottage, furnishi...more
We received a very warm welcome to Robin Cottage. It was spacious and comfortable with excellent facilities for self-catering. The garden is extremely well kept and beautiful to look out on to as well as the immediate countryside. The cottage is conveniently located to visit the Eden Project and other gardens in the area - Lost Gardens of Heligan, NT Trellisick and others. It is also close to the the south-west coast path if you are a walker! We found no shortage of places to go to. We could find no fault and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
The place is just few walking minutes from the moor and yet so close to the A30. We could see the milky way during the night! The cottage has all you need to relax, cook and have a good time or just to use it as a base to explore Cornwall. Lovely, lovely place.
We really enjoyed our trip. The yurt was a comfortable size for three of us and our dog. The pool and facilities were well maintained and the area is a good space for children to play. The only improvement would be a new mattress on the bed.
We stayed at riversmead cottages from the 1/10/18 to the 5/10 18 and had a really relaxing time We can't recommend it enough
Beautiful cottage in a prime location. Only 10 minutes away from both the north and south coast means it is the perfect spot to explore Cornwall. The cottage itself is lovely with the bed and bath being particular highlights. Everything you need in a cottage witha friendly and welcoming host. Would be comfortable recommending to family and friends.
Words of praise fail me ! An excellent locality! The hosts were most helpful ! I recommend this holiday to anyone who needs to unwind !
Very warm and friendly welcome from the owners, plus amazing hamper, beautiful surroundings and comfortable cottage .
Great place to stay very comfortable beds! Excellent facilities the hosts were very helpful - we enjoyed the games room.
Pilgrim's Barn is a lovely place to stay , very clean and really well equipped with everything you could need for a relaxing stay. Location excellent for exploring the coastline of Cornwall with Hayle and St Ives within easy reach for all your self catering requirements. Would definitely recommend this place for a stay in this area of Cornwall and hope to return.
The owners are lovely and friendly and everything was really clean. Lovely spacious house, plenty of room for a family holiday with some great extras such as the pool table and the hot tub. Great garden and enclosed which was great for the dogs! The only downside for the dogs was that by the end of the week the stoned area seemed to be hurting their paws but otherwise they loved it too. Great countryside views and loved the upside down living. Lovely balcony to sit out on and plenty of garden furniture. We easily parked 3 cars. The beds were really comfy and we had loads of towels too. Bathroo...more
The property was perfect for us as 2 families holidaying together. Loads of space for our little ones for play and plenty of seating for all. Really well looked after cottage that was spotlessly clean and the welcome pack was a lovely touch. Would definitely stay again!
Accommodation and location excellent. One of the best uk holidays my wife and I have had. Superb facilities and the hot tub was a bonus. We have already recommended this property and location to friends and will return in future. Many Thanks John and the booking team.
The location of the house was stunning. Central to everything. Welcoming hamper was a lovely surprise. Best place we have ever stayed. Every possible detail thought of. Hosts extremely friendly and approachable. Would definitely recommend this house for all ages. Would love to go back again in the future.
We had a great Spring time week in this lovely cottage. Very well appointed and comfortable in all areas- We had everything we needed down to hand soap, a washing line and tin foil. The cottage is well laid out for a family of 4 with the kids bedroom close to the front room and master bedroom so they don’t get anxious as mine sometimes do in an unfamiliar setting. Amazing shower too! There is a lovely outdoor space too with BBQ and utensils. The walk into Bude is lovely and a dead flat easy 10-15 mins. Kids bikes or scooters would be really good for this! We hardly used the car at all. ...more
Wow what a find! Fabulous location overlooking the estuary. The apartment is very well equipped with everything you could possibly need. Very helpful friendly owners live next door who offer advice on sightseeing in the area but are not obtrusive in any way. One of the most relaxing holidays we have had. We are about to rebook for next year.
Perfect location for a week away from everything but close enough drive to enjoy both north and south beaches. The cottage was well equipped, comfortable and to be able to relax in the hot tub as the sun went down was blissful. Highly recommend
We had a lovely summer holiday at Restormel (4 adults and 3 children). The house is in a quiet little village and looks out over an estuary, providing amazing views from most rooms in the house and the deck. The garden is across the road from the property which we were a bit concerned about initially but in reality, it was no bother and meant we could enjoy BBQ’s and meals sitting right next to the water. It also gave the children the opportunity to safely crab from the pontoon which they absolutely loved. Rob and Veryan (the owners) were extremely friendly and helpful and provided us with lot...more
The property is in a great location, both secluded but also central to North & South Coast with local amenities within easy reach. Lovely building and grounds and the owners could not have been more accommodating. Everything needed for our stay was available and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. I can’t recommend this property highly enough.
The cottage is modern, in a fantastic location for travelling North and South coast's. It was exceptionally clean and spacious with a ground floor bedroom and bathroom. The owner lives on site and couldn't do enough. I would not hesitate to rebook should we be travelling to East Cornwall again. The accommodation also accepts dogs. What more could you want? We were a party of three generations and the cottage suited us well.
We booked a week last minute, in September for the two of us, our daughter and Jack Russell. Everything about the stay was perfect. The cottage was spotless, and everything that you would need was provided for a self-catering trip. It had an enclosed garden which was perfect for our daughter and dog to have fun in. We walked down to the strangles which was well worth the effort. Beautiful views and scenery - it was a challenge walking back up the hills with a toddler on my shoulders :) We were in close proximity to everywhere that we wanted to visit - Bude, Port Isaac and Padstow,...more
Great accommodation, very clean, had everything we needed. Enjoyed the location as it was very quiet. Would book again.
A beautiful conversion with stunning views in a very quiet location. Some nice walks very close by including the south west coastal path. Pub located just a short walk away. That all said it is a little on the expensive side and although Covid has made cleaning a focus, there was very little in the way of cleaning products left in the property, also there were areas that could have been cleaned better (cobwebs in most bedrooms rooms and a sticky table in the kitchen) but generally very well maintained and I would be happy to book again.
Very nice place, extremely clean. Good for a large family. Well equipped. Thirty minutes drive to the coast but lovely to be so remote on an evening.
Excellent property with everything you could require. Properly so close to the water and beautiful walks all around. Had a fabulous stay.
A welcoming spacious cottage that is well placed for visiting the Eden Project, the Secret Garden at Heligan and nearby beaches. We particularly enjoyed visiting the fish and seeing local wildlife.
A fantastic place to stay, to truly absorb the beauty of the Tregothnan estate and the Fal estuary. Walk along the shore to access wonderful coastal and rural paths with superb views, beautiful cottages, Iron Age forts and grab some rare kea plums From over hanging branches along the way. So accessible for kayaking, paddle boarding, fishing or just gazing at the rise and fall of the tide. The cottage is fabulously equipped and renovated, superbly sighted and Andrew was a brilliant host looking after our every need, even providing a fresh spring water spa for tired feet after a long walk.
My Wife Son in Law and I stayed in Linga Longa last week. It’s location is excellent overlooking the beach. It’s a little difficult to access as the roadway to the home is very steep with a couple of sharp turns. But what a surprise when we went in it was spotless and clean. Everything you would need was there including Wi-fi and phone charging points. We had to provide our own sheets pillow slips and duvet covers together with towels. But under present circumstances this is what we expected. It was truly a home from home. We would love to come back Jo and Mike Roche Bures ...more
Absolutly amazing time staying at the Poppy Yurt; everything you could have possibly needed was included; such as an umbrella, torch, even a corkscrew. Heated swimming pool was an added bonus. Highly recommend this property.
Had a great stay here in August. We were 3 families with kids and there was plenty of space for all of us and for the kids to run around. Everything renovated to a high standard and the hot tub was nice to have in the evenings. Only recommendation is to have more of the basics expected in a place like this (i.e. basic spices, kitchen scissors, bbq tools). Highly recommend and hope to return.
We have stayed at Primrose Hill approximately eight times now. It is a lovely property. Very well maintained with great open spaces for everyday living. This works well for us. St Mawes is a lovely village with many amenities. Julie Kemp (Housekeeper) and her team excelled in the cleanliness this time. The property is always spotless on arrival in all aspects. However walking into the house this time and bearing in mind the Covid-19 issues it was just so pristine. Thank you Julie. We will be back to stay here again.
beautiful flat with lovely views of St Mawes harbour. Very well equipped and comfortable. We would definitely go back.
We booked a week at the Hayloft. It is compact but perfect for a couple and is the perfect place to snuggle down. It is placed on a working farm and the owners and their family are delightful. We thoroughly enjoyed our time there and nothing was too much trouble for either Becky or John. Peggy also enjoyed getting in on the act! The property is a little remote for us townies, who are used to everything on the doorstep and being able to access by foot, but for the week it was ideal. We made use of full days out. There is a lovely local pub, about 2 miles away, with great food. Nothing is ver...more
Trewellard farm cottage is located in an amazing part of Cornwall, that we know well. The owners live next door and were kind and attentive hosts, very welcoming and happy to provide any information you might need, whilst at the same time seeming to disappear for the duration of our stay. We only saw them if we wanted or needed to. The accommodation was comfortable and had everything that you might need. The village is in walking distance with good pubs, a local shop and some great eateries. The Meadery was loved by the teens, and I wish we had stayed longer so we could have tried the...more
Staying at Penjerrick was just what we needed. Quiet and comfortable getaway in a beautiful setting. Morning walks on the footpaths nearby, meals in the garden and relaxing on the loungers was perfection. Highly recommend.
We loved this property. The position must be one of the best in Cornwall with a lovely terrace overlooking the sea, however the garden steps down to the little beach at low tide, and slipway, are a little precarious for those less nimble on their feet. The accommodation is very spacious and comfortable. The owners went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. We would love to stay again, often!
We loved Trennal barn! It was such a peaceful place with a lovely secure garden. It was in a great position to explore the wonderful south and north coasts of Cornwall. It was a bit remote a few miles along small country lanes but that wasnt a problem for us. We had wonderful weather and walked miles with our dog and it was such a lovely place to return to exhausted in the evenings.
We all had a great time at Lower Meadow. We were made very welcome on arrival, everything was spotlessly clean and we had everything we needed for our stay. In our party we had 6 adults and 3 children and found the home very large and spacious. The separate 'secret' garden was lovely to have evening meals in. The hosts were lovely and even dropped off some home grown vegetables on a couple of occasions.
Hawks house was a lovely place to stay. Completely out in the country side! Everything was exactly as advertised. The only thing that was missing was a dehumidifier, to help with the excess moisture on the floor in the bedroom. We found that all our clothes ended up damp, which was a shame as everything else at Hawks House was perfect!
6 of us stayed in Lambs barn, 4adults and 2kids (2,6) and a dog. It was exactly like the pictures showed and more. We all had an amazing time and will definitely be going back again. The facilities were perfect and the little touches of fresh flowers and home made cake made it all extra special. A lovely place to go with the family and really friendly.
We had a superb week in this luxury home. Beautifully presented and well equipped. The bio-fold doors really made a difference, with full views in the living area and master bedroom. No local shops to pop to to grab a newspaper or a takeaway, but overall superb. Can’t wait to go again! Xx
We had a great time with my family Very peaceful and great place for relaxing Clean and comfortable with great condition Highly recommendable
Whatever the weather this little cottage is the perfect place to be. It has all the facilites you need for a lovely relaxing break. You will never tire of the view accross the ocean, there is always something to catch your eye: fishing boats bringing in their catch, large cargo boats further out to sea, children playing on the sand, surfers, paddle boarders and of course the ever hungry seagulls. The small town has all the amenities you require, the artisan market on the quay is a must to visit. I cannot rate this property enough and wouldn't want to stay in any other property in Porthleven.
We (family of 6 adults 2 children and a baby) had a fabulous week at Polurrian House. We wish we could have stayed a lot longer. The house is fantastic, modern with a Cornish twist, and has everything needed for a family holiday. It is in a beautiful position with fabulous views, including down towards the sea at Poldhu Cove. Convenient for visiting all the wonderful beaches in the area as well as easy drive to Helston for supermarket runs etc. We can't really say more to describe what a great place this is - thoroughly recommend.
We were looked after very well with useful tips on where to go to avoid the crowds. Nothing was too much trouble for Ginny and her family. Many thanks.
We loved our stay in An Gylen cottage last week. Teri is a wonderful host. Teri has worked really hard to make sure you still have a safe, great holiday during the Pandemic. Everything had been well organised and thought about. Easy to reach if any questions before and during stay. The cottage was very clean on arrival, cleaning products had been left for us to use. Really good size. Access to washing machine and dryer. The views here are beautiful and we loved sitting in the garden enjoying the peace and quiet. You can also walk down to the Creek from here, we didn’t make use of it bu...more
Third stay at Holly cottage speaks for itself! Delightful location with stunning views over the estuary, comfy cottage with all essentials. Problem with wet room drain rectified by Lucy and plumber after a quick phone call, not a luxury property as you are able to take dogs but spotlessly clean and comfy.
Potted Shrimp is in an ideal location, a few metres from the harbour. The house has been tastefully decorated and has everything needed for a week’s stay. We were lucky with the weather so spent most of the days out and about - cycling from Bissoe, walking to Portscatho and kayaking up the Percuil. We largely self catered and having co op at the bottom of the steps was very handy. We would certainly consider returning if it was just the two of us again.
Spectacular views from this property as long as you don't mind the forty three steps up to it. Always something to watch. Would stay there again.
We had an excellent stay in Owl Lodge . This accommodation was unexpected as we had booked for Salmon Cottage and on arrival we were asked if we wished to upgrade free of charge. The owners were aware we were seeing family whilst on holiday and thought it would be nice for us to do so at Owl Lodge which was available that week. The facilities, cleanliness, surroundings and views were faultless. The owners Kevin and Marjorie made us feel very welcome and left a hamper on the table in the kitchen for our arrival containing all sorts of delicious things from scones etc for a cream tea to...more
An outstanding property on a great location. Superb facilities. Excellent service. Huge garden. Surpassed all our expectations! Highly recommended! 5*
This is a very well maintained property in a great central-Cornwall location, ideal for exploring. Lostwithiel is a lovely little place and we enjoyed looking around the shops, meals at the Globe a d paddling in the river from the small beach under the bridge (which is only a couple of minutes walk from the property). There's a train line close by but our sleep wasn't disturbed by it. One point to note : I'm only 5'7" tall but I found my feet touched the 'footboard' at the bottom of the bed so the master bedroom might not be suitable for you if you're much taller than that. The st...more
Everything we could have hoped for to make our holiday relaxing. Lovely cottage and excellent facilities within minutes of the beach
Lovely rural location and just 5 mins drive from the pub. Lovely walks to the creek and nicely off the beaten track. The track to the property is quite long and unsuitable for low slung vehicles. The cottage has everything you need for a comfortable stay, with a nice courtyard allowing you to sit outside enjoying the peace and quiet.
An incredible location with stunning views of Porth and the coastline. Beautiful sunsets on most nights. Great accommodation with lots of space. The only negative is that we thought the kitchen could do with a few more plates, cutlery, utensils, serving bowls etc. We hope to visit again soon!
We had a wonderful week at Kelly Green Mill. The place was beautiful and spotlessly clean. There was everything that you would need in the kitchen. So many pots pans and crockery bits. Even a mixer and baking tins etc if you wanted to bake. The grounds outside are beautiful and all enclosed so safe for children. Would be nice if there was a swing or play equipment in the grounds for children. My father in law brought their dog and said there wasn’t really much to walk from from the mill as the roads are all country lanes with no pavement and he said when he went through the gate to ...more
Greatly pressentation inside even down to the way the cups are placed . The flat was really clean and tidy . Great location , 10 minute walk into the town of st ives or the beach. Very quiet and parking on site . I have no complaints about the flat , brilliant all round . A must stay !!
Very beautiful and peaceful location located just outside Philleigh. The owner was extremely friendly and helpful.
The owner was friendly and helpful and made our stay as 'normal' as possible during the pandemic. The cottage is nice and clean and tastefully furnished but very small. Had the weather been better we would have possibly enjoyed the garden more so not worried that the living space was so small. It's a lot of money for such a small place. I hadn't clocked there isn't a dishwasher - but realise there's no space for one. Real down when you're on holiday to have to washup! Could do with a fly-screen on the back door as the flies attracted by the horses were a pain. The main bedroom smelled and ...more
Had a lovely stay at Treasure box. Is really well equipped so feels a real home from home. Location is great as you can easily walk to a Mullion Cove and Portmerrion Beach and in evening walk to the handful of local pubs or restaurants. Would definitely book again
Had a lovely weeks holiday with our Labrador, the hot tub was perfect with adjustable temperature control (we like it hot..!) it has far reaching views from the accommodation & hot tub over the countryside, a glorious sunset every evening in full view. Was great to sit in the hot tub when it had gone dark as the skies are very good if you like star gazing, we saw at least 15 shooting stars. We arrived to lovely homemade scones made by Rita the owner. Be aware there are lose animals around the farm (chickens, rabbits, dogs) if your dog is not ok with this it will have to be kept inside or on a ...more
We’ve been coming to Cornwall for over 50 years, always staying on the north coast but for this break, decided to rent a cottage on the south coast. Coombe Villa was close to Truro and Falmouth and was just perfect for exploring all the small villages and harbours this part of Cornwall have to offer. The cottage itself was just perfect for us and our two dogs. Warm and cosy with everything you could want. A welcome pack of Tregothnan tea (the cottage is part of the estate), biscuits, milk, coffee etc was provided as well as a full basket of logs for the log burner. A clothes brush and sho...more
Just returned from a great holiday. The lovely cottages provide everything for a relaxing break. Amazing views and all amenities close by.
Exceptionally clean, very quiet & peaceful with beautiful views over surrounding countryside. Owners helpful & allowed use of their field up road. Modern newly fitted kitchen. Problem with Wi-Fi at start of stay but quickly resolved. Quite remote so wouldn't suit those wanting to be near pubs or town but quite centrally located for both North & South coasts & only 10 mins from main A30. Great stay for dogs too, with enclosed garden, water bowls provided,easy clean floors & near loads of lovely walks. Would be improved even more with: More comfy sofa (presently only a cane conservatory suit) ...more
The Lookout in Pendennis is in an excellent location to explore Falmouth and the rest of SW Cornwall. It is a clean, well maintained ,spacious apartment that should meet the needs of anyone wishing stay there
We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday at Orchard View. Marilyn and Mike were excellent welcoming hosts who were very helpful with a wealth of local knowledge. The cottage was exceptionally clean, very spacious and well equipped. When the weather was inclement we enjoyed staying in as the accommodation was homely and cosy set in a very peaceful and tranquil rural environment with beautiful views. Orchard View is ideally placed for visiting the iconic Cornish towns of Hayle, Penzance, Helston and St Ives.The National Trust properties of Godolphin and St Michael’s Mount are close by. The bedroom was ...more
We stayed for 7 nights as a group of four friends (after an overseas trip was cancelled due to Coronavirus). We loved the upside-down barn which had plenty of living accommodation and we spent most of our time in the kitchen cooking and sharing food around the big kitchen table. The barn was comfortable with all the amenities/crockery and kitchenware we needed. Having two bathrooms was handy for coming home sandy after days on the beach. We made use of the BBQ on a couple of nights which was great. It had a quaint outdoor space with chickens free roaming. There was plenty of space to park two ...more
Beautiful cottage few cobwebs and dusty under beds Other then that very clean tydy homely comfortable bedding was lovely although the single beds were very little my grandparents struggled in them. Good for children..very helpful friendly staff. Beautiful location and views. Would def recommend and come again
Would happily recommend Demelza to family , friends in fact anyone, we are looking forward to staying again.
A lovely tucked away location very close to the coast path. We stocked up on provisions and stayed for a winter hideaway. It was warm, cosy, beautifully furnished, well equipped and comfortable. I would highly recommend.
The cottage was in excellent condition once again. Clean and welcoming as usual. This is down to the care and attention lavished on the property by Lucy and Andrew. Thank you very much.
Warm and cosy, clean, comfortable and well equipped, helpful owners, in a beautiful location with, in my opinion, the best view in Cornwall
We thoroughly enjoyed our week . The West Wing was an ideal location for exploring Cornwall and a welcoming place to come back to each evening. Waking up in the comfortable bedrooms to birdsong and being able to sit outside in the courtyard watching the swallows and jackdaws swooping about whilst enjoying a morning coffee was a real treat. The house had everything we needed yet retained a real feeling of history, and being able to take a walk down through their land to the river in beautiful countryside was lovely. The owners were more than welcoming, and all in all we would highly recommend ...more
We really enjoyed our break away at this property. It was spacious and cosy, the central heating was useful to have in March, especially as it was a damp week after a very wet winter so it wasn't hot weather while we were there. We cannot praise the help received from Simon and Alexandra enough, they did everything they could to help whenever we needed it. The outdoor space was lovely, although we couldn't take advantage of it this time because of the weather. In the summer it would be a beautiful outdoor space. The beds were comfortable and the decor throughout was really good. Plenty o...more
Lovely place on the sea front, very nice comfortable cottage close to the town would highly recommend it, and would stay again.
We had a wonderful week in Barton Cottage. The cottage is in a breathtaking location and has a homely feel with every comfort provided. It is only a stone’s throw from the coast path and you can walk down to Crackington Haven in no time at all - a lovely beach with a great cafe. St Gennys church is beautiful with amazing views of the coast. There are so many lovely places to visit nearby: Bude, Boscastle, Tintagel to name but a few. Francis, the owner, is very helpful. We are looking forward to returning soon.
The house is very comfortable and stylish, all of the bedrooms and main rooms have beautiful views. The kitchen is really well equipped. A short walk into pretty St Mawes which has some great restaurants. A lovely journey by short ferry and a walk to the quiet beach at Towan. Can’t recommend Fiddlers Green enough.
Had a fantastic week at Sloe Cottage, everything was perfect. The cottage was stunning, very comfortable and had everything we needed. It was spotless and cleaned to a very high standard.
Had to get hoover out on arrival to clear former guests hair from main bedroom. Only 1 small double wardrobe for 5 people drawers not adequate bottom falling out of several and had to hoover these also. Didn’t get much sleep due to overly soft mattress which made you move every time the other person moved, base of bed had slats that didn’t go across width of bed there was gap in the middle, wide spent several nights on sofa as bed aggravated back where had surgery. Shower didn’t have much pressure and had to unblock the shower. Property advertised as having WiFi, however this is at the owner...more
We love this little cottage, sitting on the bench every morning watching the swifts fly overhead, listening to the country sounds, and greeting our neighbours. The cottage is charming and well equipped. The bed is extremely comfortable. If you are tall, I think the shower would be a bit of a challenge.
Enjoyed our stay in the countryside with lots of greenery and good privacy even though it is semi detached. Cottage is well equipped and felt good as we entered. Loved the garden and it would work well if you bring a dog. There was quite a bit of tractor activity on the road and at the farm nearby, especially in the harvest period when we were there, but we knew that in advance; it is located in a working farming community. Good access to Port Isaac and other seaside locations. Overall we had a very relaxing time and felt well supported by Cornwall Cottages and the Lamellan Estate with clear a...more
We found the cottage in a lovely spot and enjoyed our stay. A good spot for touring ,a lovely cottage and good value.
Had a fantastic time in Burridge house in the middle of nowhere. Went for the peace and quiet with beautiful garden great place for our doggy. It is in a valley which is pitch black at night time so great you can see millions of stars in the sky so take a telescope Truly a fantastic place.
Me and my family had a fantastic time staying at Rivermead cottage. I highly recommend this place, the river is so close and have lovely views. Easy to get to other places. The owners a lovely and very welcoming.
Fantastic cosy and very clean Cottage. Lovely welcome pack and excellent facilities. Portreath itself is delightful, large well kept beach and some super little eateries close to the cottage. Well positioned with easy access to main roads that take you to all the main tourist hotspots but tucked away from the hustle and bustle of these. Some excellent walking and cycle trails right from the doorstep. My only feedback to improve would be to include a dishwasher as the cottage is self catering and sleeps 4. Would rather be out enjoying this lovely area of Cornwall than washing up!!
Excellent property. Wonderfully furnished with super showers and very comfortable beds. The owners were most helpful and quick to help out with a couple of requests. Just a small recommendation that a mirror in the bedrooms would have been useful.
The property is very well presented, exceptionally clean throughout, inside and outside. it is clear that the property has been finished to a high standard and the regular cleaning helps to maintain this. Everything was spotless. Fantastic location, because Cornwall was so extra busy during these times, we spent our holidays locally walking and on a bus adventure. There is lots to do in St Agnes, many very good pubs and restaurants. Lots of local walking. Family of 4, two teenagers and a little dog stayed in house and it was spacious for all of us. Nice size main lounge and well equipped kitch...more
Having stayed previously at Manor Avor we had an appreciation of what to expect, we were joined this time by our daughter and her partner and therefore required the additional space. An extremely quiet relaxing location was what we were looking for and that is exactly what we got. The Manor is very comfortable and even with the COVID-19 restrictions in place everything we required was provided. Great walks for the dogs straight from door and access to the SW Coastal Path. Hot tub was a benefit after walking this path. John the owner was helpful in providing advice but certainly not intrusive. ...more
We loved our stay at Templeton and wish we could have stayed longer. The house was the perfect beach house - location, comfort, user friendliness could not be better. The owners were super helpful with any queries we had and the agents were also very easy to deal with.
1st time at property. Was really pleased with property lay out and condition in a perfect location for us. Would recommend and hope to return again
Splendid house with plenty of space for a mix of generations. Wonderful amenities keeping us fully occupied for the week. Will book again next year if the dates for the family fit.
We had a lovely week staying here - the barn is furnished to a high standard with everything you could need (including bowls, plates and cutlery for children and a smart-tv with access to AmazonPrime TV and other apps which was great!) It’s within easy distance of lots of great, dog friendly beaches and there’s a lovely farm shop & cafe a few hundred metres up the road. The only downside we found was being next to the main road - it was a bit noisy with the windows open. Also, a point to note - The garden may be safe for dogs that aren’t too adventurous or agile - our cocker spaniel manag...more
Had a lovely stay in cottage. Very spacious, plenty of privacy between each cottage. Only slight issue could have had better kitchen utensils for cooking. Saying that lovely holiday had.
Despite the stormy weather we had a fab holiday. The house is fantastic & the gardens beautiful. Brilliant location for short walks to Fowey & Readymoney Cove but also ideal for longer walks via coastal path/saints way.
The family group stayed here and had a very fine time. All the beds were comfortable. The house was clean and well presented. The fittings were fabulous. The weather meant we could use the balcony for many of our meals. The parking was so convenient and big enough for our three cars. Well done! We all had a great time in a lovely snug cottage. It would have been nicer if there had been enough toilet rolls, any dishwasher tablets or washing powder. When you pay a very reasonable price you expect certain things.
We found the property to be a lovely conversion set in beautiful surroundings. Well equipped and suitably furnished, it was a perfect location from which to visit family in the area. The owners who live next door were most welcoming and helpful during our stay.
We really enjoyed our stay at the Moonlight in the lovely Cornish countryside. We especially liked the walks through the orchard and the peaceful Zen and Buddha gardens. Our host, Sarah was amazing, a lovely person and most helpful.
Pedn Lodge is a lovely place to stay and feels like a second home. It is clearly a beautifully designed and decorated home (it feels like a home to the credit of the owners) and with stunning views over St Mawes harbour and out to the mouth of the River Fal. The owners have carefully thought through every thing you take for granted at home; even down to binoculars for looking out to Pendennis Castle!! Pedn Lodge is clean, tidy, stylish, warm and with a calm atmosphere. We will definitely stay here again!!
Just got back from staying here for a week with our dog & 2 kids both under 2. Once we had baby proofed the main room by removing a few climbing obstacles we settled right in. Neighbours offered us tea & coffee on arrival which was a nice offering especially after our eldest had just thrown up in the car 50 yards from the house. Now the house..... its has everything you need for a proper cornwall holiday. All items like bodyboards, skim boards, cricket set,bowls, chairs and a wind break are all available from the shed on the back of the house which we found so useful. We brought our fire stick...more
Though early in the year we were quite lucky with the weather and were able to sit outside on the balcony and patio downstairs. Lovely roomy accommodation and extremely well equipped kitchen.
This is a perfectly comfortable little place that is attached to the farmhouse. It had everything that we needed including a good range of kitchen equipment. The location is excellent being a few dozen meters from Dozmary pool and within a few minutes drive of Colliford lake. The owners are very friendly and helpful, I would stay there again.
The cottage is excellent for two people, warm, comfortable and very quiet. Sitting outside on the bench there was a nice view of the sea a mile or so away. Our hosts had made good preparation for COVID times, but I am sure are just as thorough normally. They were about if needed (were not) but not interfering. Would happily return if we want to revisit this area.
Well-equipped, comfortable cottage in a good location away from crowds; lovely sea view. Close to Carne and Pendower beaches, both with plenty of space, great for children. Short drive to Portscatho village, an Art centre and pretty harbour. Good walks, eating, interesting places to visit.
Stunning location, compact but comfortable accommodation, poor level of cleanliness.................
We’re so glad to have found this cottage, it’s perfect for a peaceful get away from it all rest. The bed is so comfortable & the view across the countryside is beautiful. It’s also ideally located for visiting the Eden project.
We spent a week in August at Pencreek cottage. The week was remarkable - tranquil and after lockdown it was something incredible. Highly recommend.
The cottage was sweet, with bright cheerful Interiors. It’s in a really central location and great access for summers beach. It would be nice for a couple with perhaps one child. For two children it was all a bit tight. No space for storage of coats, boots, wellies, wetsuits etc. Which does make a difference when you’re spending a week somewhere with changeable weather and you need all your kit. It all had to be left in the dining room so nowhere to put it all away. The ceilings were so low that it wasn’t that comfortable for my tall husband who bashed his head continually. The cott...more
We stayed here for a week and it was perfect for us. Good comfortable and clean. Beautifully decorated to reflect the sea and charm of St Mawes. The stairs kept us fit (there is a lift but I trifle slow) but the stairs are worth it for the amazing view. It was a little noisy at night with the windows open but that is to be expected in August and holiday season. We loved that it was so close to the centre of the village and easy to get everywhere. The flat was very well furnished and the kitchen had all you could want. The linen provided was all of good quality and enough of it. Easy to count i...more
Little Egret has everything you need for a comfortable stay and also has a dedicated parking space which is a real bonus in St Mawes. This is not our first stay at Little Egret and we have already booked another week in 2020 so I think that says enough.
We had the loveliest week staying at Bennerley house, it was stunning. I am already missing the amazing views from the balcony, glass of wine in hand! The only negative thing is the noisy bakers coming and going down the side alley, who appear to make zero effort to lower their voices at 6/7am in the morning. That said, it wouldn’t stop me from returning! Loved it. P.s. would be fantastic if the owners could plant a few herb planters outside so that those who like to cook can get them easily, as nowhere seems to sell fresh herbs in St Mawes! Just a thought.
Cottage was really well maintained, every thing we needed for our stay. Right on the beach of Hollywell Bay. Really nice walks as far as you dare. Local to Morrison's if you need to shop. Social distancing was fantastic in the main towns, if you don't wear a mask you don't enter simple as! We definitely will be visiting again next year.
I cannot recommend the cottage highly enough, it is really lovely and snug.The house is so beautifully presented with such lovely things. The decor is stylish yet homely. The owners have obviously taken great care with it. We felt fortunate to have chosen it for our holidays. Our boys adored their room with view to the rear garden and the dog enjoyed the log burner!
A beautiful property in a stunning location, just what we needed to relax, after a stressful few months. The furnishings and fittings were of a really high standard, but at the same time homely and comfortable, and the kitchen had everything you needed, and more. The bottle of champagne was a lovely welcoming gesture and as the weather was so good, we enjoyed drinking it, sitting on the balcony overlooking the marina. Unfortunately, due to the travel restrictions announced during our stay, we reluctantly cut our visit short, but fully intend to return when things have settled down.
Sea shore was an ideal situation for a family holiday, with close access to a sandy beach with space to find a quiet spot. Swimming was well monitored by lifeguards, and there were sheltered areas by the stream for youngsters. The on site playground and games room suited us well. The accommodation was very good, and an initial problem with cutlery was immediately sorted. Overall we were well satisfied.
This is a delightful cottage in a spectacular location. Portmellon is a quiet little cove and well away from the hustle and bustle of town life. However, Mevagissey is just a short walk away so you have the best of both worlds.
A wonderfully positioned place! Our girls loved playing in the garden and we enjoyed walks to the nearby beaches and along the coast. The welcome pack and fresh flowers in the kitchen and bedroom were a lovely touch too.
You can not fault the position of this cottage, just beautiful. My only comments are that for the price we paid I would of expected the garden to have been tidier and the grass mown before we had arrived. Also some areas internally need updating.
This is our 3rd stay at The Sett. It’s quiet, secluded and on a farm at the end of one of Cornwall’s little lanes. Perfect for the getaway from it all. Excellent dog walks on your doorstep, literally! The cottage is perfectly well furnished with all the basic things you’ll need. Just a 10 min drive away from a dog friendly beach. Even though you seem in the middle of nowhere, your only a short drive from somewhere!
After a long trip we were welcomed by the very friendly owner Dolly. On the table was a delicious cake which was a pleasant surprise. The cottage itself was very cosy so we felt at home immediately. It was very clean too. The game room was a success for our children and added to the wonderful experience we had at Trevadlock Manor Cottages. I highly recommend this place!
This is a lovely cottage in a great location. However, a visit to anywhere in Cornwall is expensive and we felt things should have been perfect for the amount we paid for the cottage; especially as we weren't able to get into the cottage until 5 on the first day and had to be out by 10 on the last one (after getting up early to make sure we left everything clean and tidy). Although there are three bedrooms there is not a huge amount of space in any of the rooms, not really enough to accommodate the six that the cottage has bed space for. The kitchen and the dining room are relatively small, ...more
We loved every minute of our stay at broad beach cottage. Holiday cottages very considerately designed and landscaped to ensure tranquil and privacy...the hot tub was wonderful relaxing treat after long walks
Booked this holiday back in January and it happened to be the most perfect holiday for this year! Gorgeous homely cottage, fully equipped with everything you could think of, with lovely views over the harbour, we could have sat in the garden all day. Wonderful little village with everything you need on your doorstep and a great Farm shop just a short walk away. The ideal place if you are looking for somewhere relaxing without the crowds, but still with a bit of life to it.
The cottage was extremely clean & we had everything that we needed. It is quite small for 4 adults & the stairs are fairly steep but after all it is an old cottage. Luckily we had gorgeous weather & we were able to spill out into the outside areas. The bed arrangement in the 2nd bedroom is a little awkward for elderly parents but fine for children. All in all a wonderful place to stay for a weeks holiday. A fantastic fresh fish stall on the harbour & well stocked butcher nearby.
Although we had a lovely stay in the cottage and the facilities were excellent in a good location I feel that the cottage was not as clean as it should have been when we arrived considering it had been empty since the middle of March.
We had such a wonderful stay at Seaspray in March 2019. We travelled from Kent to attend a close family memorial in St Mawes and Seaspray was ideally located for everything we needed. The owners had equipped the apartment with everything you need. Even thinking of beach chairs and crabbing equipment! WiFi would have been useful in the apartment but luckily we had enough 4g to cover us for the weekend. We would absolutely recommend staying at Seaspray for a trip to St Mawes.
This is the second Christmas we have spent at Crotchet Cottage and we love it, its location, it's peaceful, pretty and well situated for our favourite haunts. We go prepared for slightly tricky parking and carrying all those things you thought 'I might just need' up the little path and it doesn't bother us. Our little dogs love it too!
Very compact flat close to the sea wall, just large enough for a weeks stay. The entrance was disappointing and unfriendly but the flat very welcoming. Plenty of hot water for the powerful shower in a good size bathroom. Kitchen provided a good selection of Cooking utensils but lacked cupboard space for your own provisions, the large fridge freezer was very useful.
- St Mawes is a lovely fishing village - the property is up a steep hill from the village, which won't suit everyone, but that is very clearly flagged in the marketing literature and provides good daily exercise - a lovely property, which has been very nicely designed and decorated. It has a spacious feel which we really appreciated. - the kitchen is well appointed and had everything we needed - it was very nice of the owners to check in on us - it’s a very personal thing but we found the bed mattresses a little too firm
I'm quite fussy about staying away from home but Jubilee cottage was lovely: - it was even better than the pictures (so often I find pictures over sell) - it was homely, with everything you could need, clean, modern but still cosy - the owner was lovely and more than happy to help but equally left us to it - it was child friendly being on one level and easy to keep clean - it's a beautiful setting - windy roads to get there (coming from a city girl) but well worth it - would return to explore more (as we were only there for a local wedding)
Exellent peacefull remote cosy warm cottage on a farm holding. Away from any noise .the dog loved it too. .
I have written in the Guest Book about how lovely Portloe is - a really magical village that I hope stays a best kept secret ! Cove Cottage was also delightful - good location with harbour views from some windows, a characterful house and well equipped. As some of the views were so special it was a shame that the windows were so dirty. I mentioned it to the owner as he rang on another matter and he said it was the salt from the sea which accumulates quickly (?) Also the 2nd higher patio, though a glorious place to sit, would have benefited from some cutting back - we got stung by nettles up th...more
The Tractor Shed was a perfect size for our family of 4 and despite being located in Bodmin town was in a quiet , tucked-away courtyard which was nicely kept. We appreciated the allocated parking space and there was room to unload in front of the property. The hallway with the addition of hooks was really practical for storing bags and beach kit. The kitchen was well-equipped and we were able to self-cater without any problem. The only thing we would have welcomed would have been outdoor washing line but the friendly and accommodating owner did say we were welcome to use his. It was a sha...more
Enjoyed our stay - cottage is in a great location for exploring Cornwall being in the countryside not far from Truro. The cottage was well equipped , however, I felt that the sofa and chairs needed renewing and the double bed definitely needed replacing - very squeaky and uncomfortable. I also didn't realise when booking that another studio was above part of the cottage so we has noise from the people staying above us. I also think it is annoying that we had to top up the electric meter to £10.00 - have never come across this before as normally included in the price of the rental which wasn't ...more
After lockdown we were looking forward to our break in St Mawes at Den’s Den. We were pleased with the accommodation and the fact that there is a dedicated parking space available. Given all the Covid-19 regulations the property was clean and tidy and sufficiently well stocked with all necessary kitchen utensils etc. Clear instructions on what to do on leaving day were also provided. We enjoyed our week spending our time in and around St Mawes without the need to travel very far. The only downside, and nothing to do with the property, was the noise from the pub opposite at night and the seagu...more
We are regular visitors to Holywell Bay and really enjoyed our first stay at Romany Rye. The property was super clean, well presented with ample parking. We would stay again .
This is the second time we have stayed at this gorgeous cottage. The situation is perfect, easy to get to, great that the train station is across the road (we went to Truro) Par sands is a lovely walk and a great little beach. We ate in the pub which is literally next door and had fab service and food. The cottage is cosy and warm and has everything you need for a stay. Yes, I’d definitely use again.
We were really relieved to find that our holiday in Our Cottage (booked last year) could go ahead after the COVID-19 restrictions were relaxed a little. This was the third time we have stayed there - we love it and have already booked for next year. It's perfectly placed for Tavern Beach - where our small grandchildren spent most of their time - and the rear yard is convenient for keeping beach paraphernalia such as bodyboards and an inflatable kayak. The quirky (outside) "Eden Loo" is especially handy for wet and sandy children coming off the beach to use without traipsing through the hou...more
We had a great stay at Manor Arvor for a week in August. The house is a nice little conversion, perfect for two people with enough space for a week long stay. The location is in a really quiet area but only a short walk to the nearby village with a good pub and a lovely cafe. We didn't interact with our hosts, which was ideal for us, but they left contact numbers in case. The hot tub, wifi, and all facilities are nice and modern. I'd definitely recommend Manor Arvor for a quiet week away.
This is lovely accommadation.ideal location .great for couples. With or withoutpets shall return in2020
The Lodge was lovely it had everything we needed for a family of 6. The kitchen was equipped with everything you needed and there was a great supply of cleaning equipment if we needed it. Totally COVID safe
We had a really lovely time. The cottage was very comfortable and the en-suite was handy. Our children also enjoyed the outdoor play area.
The observation tower is a beautiful place to stay. The views from the tower are incredible. The stairs are not fit the faint hearted. Location is brilliant. Good for town, beaches, restaurants. We spent another Amazing New Year here. Can’t wait to come back. Thank you so much
We had a great time staying here last week , if i had a criticism it would be that it was a bit small , but this did not distract from the overall experience . Location was spot on........... Views stunning
Lovely cottage, very clean which is comforting in these difficult times. Very comfy bed and well equipped kitchen. Location was good for a touring base - nothing much in the village itself. Parking in the layby is a bit tight, but as we had a small car we managed - anything bigger and we might have been in a pickle! Nice little garden in the front. Secure for a small dog - a bigger dog might've been able to jump the wall.
This was our fifth or sixth stay at Dunroamin and as usual we had a wonderful time, everything that was needed was there plenty of crockery, cutlery and cooking utensils all placed in the dish washer at the end of the evening. All bed linen and towels were supplied. The washing machine worked well but the tumble dryer sounded like a cement mixer. The leaking shower door in the en-suite has been addressed and the floor stayed dry. The parking is good we had three cars parked with space for a small fourth. The only down point was we were missing Millie our springer Spaniel who sadly passed away ...more
Firstly, many thanks for the lovely welcome gifts of flowers and wine, enjoyed by all! We really enjoyed our stay at The Linney. The property has everything you need for a relaxing holiday and is very well equipped. Rooms are all spacious setting perfect and the views are just amazing! Looking forward to visiting again next year.! P. S Please let me know if you ever think of selling!!
The lodge was totally spotless and obviously very new - it felt like we were the first people to stay there! The rooms were well sized and we were all very comfortable in the kitchen, lounge area or at the dining table. Location was good for St Austell or Mevagissey but not particularly near the sea, however there's loads of space around the lodge, parking is right outside and the onsite swimming pool is excellent. John and the other staff at the site were always friendly and gave us loads of good ideas for days out, walks etc. Overall we had a lovely week and the property was perfec...more
First impressions the accommodation was that it’s a little tired but once we settled in we loved living the ‘farm life’ the outside pool, outside play area, farmyard animals etc were a lovely addition to entertain our grandson. Would definitely recommend to anyone with children/ dogs and the surrounding area and beach are lovely to explore.
Had a fantastic stay at Pennasville 2, the house was perfect for 2 adults and 2 children. Although I should point out that the house pointed out with the red arrow on the booking site is not actually number 2, number 2 is actually opposite near the entrance gates so we were a bit confused when we first got there. Really pleased with the location though! WiFi is only available at the games room which is great for kids and adults, pool tables and a table tennis table and other games to play. My two are a bit old for the little playground so I can’t really say much about that. The house has every...more
We had a lovely week at Hollowtree Cottage, the cottage was very quiet and restful and was well-equipped. Beautiful garden with different areas to sit in. Within easy reach of Portreath and Porthtowan and not far from main road to get to Falmouth or Truro. Really nice touches such as lighting in the stairs for nighttime. We would definitely come back another year. Thank you.
A very comfortable property in a quiet location with easy access to lots of favourite destinations. The property is well equipped and it's just a short walk to the shops and restaurants in Lostwithiel
We liked this apartment a lot. It has a comfortable, warm and homely feel about it and has been well maintained. It is very well equipped too. The terrace at the back is a real bonus with lovely views. The apartment is very centrally located. The shared corridor up to it is a bit shabby but don’t let that put you off. We would happily stay at Spinnakers again.
A simple set up but has everything you need. Mattress too soft for me but that's just my preference.
We had a lovely stay in Willow cottage. Lyn was a wonderful host. We enjoyed the peaceful location .
A lovely cottage in a quiet location. On opening the door, we were hit by the smell of cleaning products. Very reassuring in a pandemic. Everything was spotless, and the welcome pack even catered for my children’s coeliac disease. We’ve never had such attention to detail before and it made us feel very valued and safe. The cottage was very modern and comfortable - a big freezer and fridge to hold a whole week’s shopping, and good Kitchen equipment. Big TV for evenings in with DVD player. The location is quiet, the field behind the cottage is great for kids to roll down or climb the tree. The...more
Beautiful cottage, location to die for, only a 1-minute walk to the harbour. Very roomy 3 bedroomed cottage. Lovely lounge, kitchen, utility room, toilet and massive bathroom. Lovely bedding, cutlery and crockery, kitchen is massive and very well equipped, should you wish to cook, but mind your head. South facing charming private garden, 10-minute walk to the local supermarket and a nice selection of restaurants at your doorstep. Do try the Charlestown Fish & Co van at the Harbour, long wait but better that Rick Steins. Location is excellent, beaches galore and Lands’ end in 40 mins, Newquay &...more
Excellent visit with accommodation and equipment unexpectedly top drawer and very comfortable. Despite the busy Bank Holiday and obviously full rentals, the complex was peaceful and quiet. Perfect location for beach fun. A shame the local store is closed though. A return visit planned.
7 of us and Dave the Dog stayed at Riverside 5-12th September 2020. The location is perfect! The views are amazing! We had a fabulous week with days on the beach, some great walks, a visit to the Cyder Farm plus more. The house itself is extremely well equipped, very roomy and comfortable, a large and secure garden - nothing bad to say, it was all amazing. We were greeted with a lovely welcome pack - thank you for the cream tea! And the vouchers to use at Lewinnick Lodge was a lovely surprise - the food there was really good. All in all - the perfect staycation :-)
Lambs Barton is a beautiful cottage with amazing views. The cottage had everything that you need for a restful break and the location is good. Crackington Haven is a short walk down the hill and the exercise on the way back up helps burn off the cream tea.
Fantastic cottage in a great location with roaming animals yards from your front door. The cottage was fantastically clean on arrival and very comfortable.parking at the cottage and views out onto the stables.
Lovely place with amazing access to beaches and facilties are amazing. Yurt was clean and amazingly equiped.
This was the first time we had stayed at Lamellen Lodge and for us as a family of four with two labradors it was prefect. Lovely old Gate House, fantastic fenced patio area and lawns to the river with a five bar gate for added security with ample parking space. In all honesty only being there for a week we were hardly able to make use of all the facilities; spending most of our limited time on the beach. The lay-out of the Lodge suited us and the dogs; a downstairs toilet is always a bonus. The fridge/freezer was enormous and the icing on the cake was having pre-ordered Fee's Foods waiting...more
The house was very nicely renovated. A positive surprise when we arrived. The house has all basic needs. The staircase was a pain. Really only for flexi kids. The masterbed comfortable to sleep but way to small for 2 tall adults. We suggest same bed but 20-40 cm longer and wider even though room is small. Excellent location. Parking is horrendous especially when you come with a bigger car.
This is a lovely cottage, situated in a perfect location for town and beaches and cliff top walks. Well equipped and very comfortable .
A lovely , comfortable house in a sensational location. Just a couple of irritants. The showers in the en suites were extremely slippery, so much so that that one of our number fell and narrowly missed hurting himself badly. When this was reported we were told that anti - slip mats were not available This may be a precautionary Covid measure but, bearing in mind the very high rental fees for this property, surely mats can be disinfected and changed after each tenancy. There were only 3 loungers to be shared among 8 guests. Again disappointing in a property in this price range. Neithe...more
Great location. Wonderful terraces with fantastic views. We had a lovely holiday at Beam Reach. That said, the property is in need of some TLC.
The cottage was really well appointed despite it’s size with everything we needed including logs and firefighters (we stayed in feb), wine, milk and fresh flowers - nice touches. It’s well located for walks and the nearest beach is beautiful a half hour hilly walk away. Good internet too!
We had a wonderful family holiday at the Leat. Our young boys loved the open space to play in and wanted to move in permanently. The owners were very helpful and friendly. The living space was spacious and comfortable. It was well stocked with crockery and cutlery, unlike a lot of places we've stayed in before. The beds were sooo comfy and cosy. The location is brilliant, not too far from main roads but felt like we were in the middle of nowhere, so very peaceful. We'd love to return.
We had a lovely stay at the Old Dairy with our family party of 7, which included our 18 month grandchild. Plenty of space - seating and sleeping. Great outdoor space both front and rear. We chose the Dairy based on the size of our party, the details and pictures on the Cornwalls Cottages website, and that the location was central to allow us to visit both North, South and West areas. We had the benefit of beautiful weather, so had regular visit to the beaches and dips in the sea (without wet suit!). Major shops are within easy reach, and we cycled the quiet lanes local to the Dairy. All in all...more
A comfortable cottage in a beautiful area of Cornwall.Owner doing her best under Covid regulations and we felt confident in staying here. Great coastal walks and eateries - recommend the “Hidden Hut” on Porthcurnick Beach.
Fields is a wonderful place for really getting away from it all. The location is stunning, with a distant sea view beyond fields and woodland. The sense of peace is palpable. The house itself is very light and airy, with plenty of room and it is well-equipped with modern appliances. The large garden is a real bonus, as it adds to the feeling of space and a generous driveway is very welcome in Cornwall!
Would definitely visit again. The balcony overlooking widemouth bay was a lovely place to sit as the sun set. It was perfect with the dog as he could run straight into the field (being careful of the peacock and ducks!). Accommodation is fairly basic but clean and comfortable. Very warm welcome on arrival with homemade scones.
A nice spacious property with a large lounge and separate dining room It was good to have 2 modern well equipped bathrooms The small garden was enjoyable as it got the evening sun Downstairs some of the ceilings were a bit low but our family are all over 6 foot The bedrooms were of a good size and the kitchen was well equipped
I spent my 60th birthday at Turnpike cottage. Could not fault it. Clean. Homely and welcoming. We all enjoyed our stay. Thank you gx
Almost perfect just needs slightly better bathroom facilities for the number of people & slightly more comfortable beds. Otherwise, absolutely loved it
New Quay lodge was well equipped and comfortable with commanding views from the first floor rooms. Could have spent hours watching the comings and goings on the water but were too busy enjoying the multitude of walks and beaches nearby. We brought sanitiser and antibacterial sprays with us but Lyn, the housekeeper had left plenty dotted around for use anyway. The location is superb, being at the end of the far end of the village we could usually park right outside so only used the secure parking space around the back once.
This place is a stones throw via some steep steps into town. Very narrow road and garage just fit small car in. Garage door very stiff needed 2 to open.There was everything you needed but main bedroom let light in from bathroom landing and main windown only had a roller blind that didnt come all way down the window. In early summer the light would stream in from 5 am . Glass in bedroom door and windows from bathroom meant any bathroom or landing lights on in night would shine in. Considering being told to leave early and arrive late for extra cleaning was surprised at high level area dust an...more
One Old School Cottages is a warm and cosy "home from home" with everything supplied you could possibly need and everything beautifully clean. We were a party of 3 adults and a dog and the accommodation suited our needs perfectly, with plenty of room to spread out. We walked down the hill into Portscatho every morning and along the coast path to Porthcurnick beach so that our dog could have a swim (at the dog friendly beach all year round) which she thoroughly enjoyed. Plenty to do and see in the area, we particularly enjoyed Mevagissey and the short trip across the creek on the King Har...more
We had the most perfect week , the cherry on the top was the weather. Cottage was small but had everything that we needed Only two very small things to mention , it would have been nice to have used the loungers on the small area at the top of the stone steps , especially considering how beautiful the weather was, but the area was very overgrown! It would be handy to have had some placemats and an extra tea-towel as we did eat in a few nights Very minor things but may help future guests We loved Flushing and hope to be back again soon
We had a lovely week at Trewince. It is the most idyllic place. Wonderful views and beautiful beaches. The lodge was well equipped and comfortable but some updating is needed. When you're paying around £1200 for a week you expect everything to be in great condition but it wasn't. I also think it's a bit mean not to provide towels (not even a tea towel). I wouldn't mind any of this if it wasn't so expensive. It is a welcoming and homely place to stay and, due to the wonderful location I would consider returning.
This cottage scores 10/10 for location, being just a short downhill stroll to the town and harbour. Another plus is the designated parking space (albeit a rather tight one, our Tucson fitted okay though). The cottage was clean and comfortable and with a few minor improvements could be Great! We didn’t spend too much time in the galley kitchen and felt it could be better equipped, eg no tea plates only large ones. It was dominated by a large, non-working range (not that we would have used it), and the hob on the electric cooker was so slow it took ages just to boil an egg. Three lovely lig...more
Had a lovely week here recently, despite the awful weather. A few minor issues, which were quickly dealt with by the owner, who couldn't have been nicer.
Clean, excellent location,very good customer service and throughly recommended great views along the estuary.
We had a great stay in Chyrond. Clean, tidy and everything you need for a great stay in Cornwall. Cottage is in a lovely village just a couple of minutes from a pub and local shop
This is our second stay at Porthmeor, the property is modern large and very clean. The only thing against this property, it is at the top of St Ives, it is walkable and up a lot of steps if you have mobility problems your forced to take a taxi, this costs less than £5. But overall I would definitely recommend this property and will be returning in the future.
We have used Cornwallscottages before and it was great so we thought we would go with them again. We were not disappointed. Instructions from them were spot on. Stream Side is a lovely house set in well managed gardens, the planting is beautiful. We recommend it. Pat, Margaret & Ian Jones.
What an absolute gem of a property. Perfect location for every aspect of Polzeath and surrounding area . Fantastic sea view and lovely and warm . Plenty of radiators . Will defo return .
Comfortable and stylish accommodation in a lovely location with rural views. Friendly and helpful owners.
Richard, the owner, couldn’t do enough to help us. He made sure we could use the pool whenever we wanted to, arranged restaurants and constantly offered helpful advice to help us make the most of our stay. We usually go abroad but I can honestly say, this was one of the best holidays we have ever had.
This is a fantastic house - light, spacious, airy and sunny. It's located right in the middle of town so it's easy to walk everywhere to reach shops and restaurants. It IS a steep walk up the hill from the sea, but that's part of being in Cornwall. It was spotlessly clean and well equipped with everything you need. Highly recommend.
Where the cottage is makes it easy for visiting lots of lovely places. Not easy if you have problems going up and down stone steps.
We had a wonderful week staying in Pelyn in St Mawes. The flat is well equipped and comfortable with beautiful views over the Percuil estuary. The property is part of a working boatyard and as we have a boat moored nearby, the location was super convenient. The owner was very kind in letting us keep our tender on the pontoon. There is parking just outside the flat but its only a 10 minute walk into the village. There is also a lovely walk from the boatyard along the banks of the Percuil. All in all, this is a perfect base from which to explore all the delights of the Roseland, especially if yo...more
We’ve just returned from a week staying in Towan Cottage and loved it! Great location kids absolutely loved the pool and hot tub. Would definitely book there again. One of our most favourite holidays!
The property was in a fantastic location and had everything that you would need. My only issues were that the furniture in the lounge hadn’t been vacuumed underneath as there was fluff & dog hairs, we noticed this as we had to retrieve some of our children's toys from there. There was also Quite a few wood lice and a lot of tiny moths inside the house. A gentleman came on the Saturday afternoon to put a new lamp in the bottom lounge but said it had no bulbs & would return to put the bulbs in, he never did this.
We had a fabulous week at Beach Retreat - obviously the location of this property is the biggest positive, providing easy access to the beach and coastal path. The house itself was everything we had hoped for and was clean and comfortable, easily accommodating our party of 7. It is also worth adding that there is decent WiFi to keep the teenagers happy when the weather wasn’t great which is also helpful given that there is no mobile phone signal at all! The only small negatives were a couple of small omissions in the facilities provided which could be easily corrected: there was no airing rac...more
The Cottage location was perfect, just meters from the sea and the pub. The Bed was extremely comfortable and the bedding and towels were of a high quality. The kitchen was of a good spec and very well equipped, although when everything is running the toaster may knock out the electrics! The Information for the cottage was spread throughout the house, it might be easier to find if it's in the same place? The parking space is a good size but completely impossible to access due to a bolted bollard in the very corner of the neighbours space. After chatting to the old guy who lived at the end, we ...more
A wonderful barn conversion set in spacious grounds within an easy walk to the beach and coasts path. A perfect base for exploring the Lizard and surrounding area; we thoroughly recommend it.
Had a wonderful time in this lovely cottage. Was well located and within easy driving distance of many interesting places.
O.K.- for short stay , owner very helpful . If self catering, which it is, there are no local shops or eateries for some miles.
We stayed as two families here and found the place smart, clean and comfortable. The views towards Poldhu cove allow glimpses of the sea and allow a pleasant place to sit even if the weather is not good. Internet is fast-ish (I was able to stream tv from my laptop) and the hot tub was a god send for the teenagers. The proper coffee machine with milk frother was a bonus. Bring a few dvds for any wet days / evenings as there aren’t any in the shelves. It’s one of about 4 or 5 barn conversions- we were aware we had neighbours but were not disturbed by them. John (caretaker) was around generall...more
Absolutely fantastic seven days in the stunning Customs House in beautiful Pentewan... Total efficiency demonstrated from booking agent to housekeeper. Thank you so much..
Good spacious cottage. All you need for stay. Carpets look a bit tired but otherwise good condition. Great view.
Willows and Pollaughan Farm are a great place to stay with small children, who loved the animals. Fleur looked after us well. However, this is not a 5* property as described. The building suffers from condensation and is in a poor state. Kitchen units are peeling and some doors and windows are rotting. The sitting room needs some table lamps or standard lamps because otherwise it is only lit by the ceiling lights. There is so much potential here, but until the accommodation is upgraded the description is inaccurate and the price too high.
My family and I really enjoyed staying at the cottage. It has fantastic views and is ideally located for the beaches and all local shops. It is also within easy reach of Charlestown for pubs and restaurants.
Great lication, so quite and peaceful. Beds very comfortable slept perfectly every night. Great location for north and south coast of Cornwall. Welcome cream tea and pint of milk very welcoming. The owner os there if you need her but respects ypur privacy and very helpful with local info. Loved it and would stay again.
We had a very pleasant break at Mooringside. It is in a beautiful setting and the river is always changing. The apartment was clean and tidy, and it was wonderful to have an ensuite in each bedroom. Due to the current situation with Covid 19, we ate in the apartment most nights. The equipment and utenils were poor quality, and as there was a full size dishwasher, there were not enough mugs etc. My daughter, who is in her twenties, had a nasty accident when she tripped getting out of the shower. She then slipped on the floor and badly bruised her chin, and had lots of other bruises. Both bat...more
Totally enjoyed our stay in St Mawes, the house is well equipped and comfortable and within easy walking distance of the main town and beaches.
We had a lovely week in church cottage. The cottage is in beautiful and peaceful location and it was always a pleasure to come back to after exploring the local area. Francis was very helpful and we had no problems at all with our stay.
Fistral cottage provided a very convenient base for exploring Cornwall. Although situated just off a main road the thick walls of the small barn conversion meant traffic noise was not a problem. The barn itself is adequately, if basically furnished although the carpets are looking rather tired. The bed in the main bedroom was very comfortable. The swimming pool and garden areas are attractive and well maintained.
Squire is set in a rural scenic location with a view of the distant ocean, which can be heard. The farm is quaint with a couple of darling pigs, a goat and lots of feathery friends. Inside, Squire we found it to be quite spacious, very light and airy. Some areas of Squire are looking tired such as carpet, towels and a hairdryer dating from 1972. But don’t let less deter you as it all adds to the charm of the old barn conversation Squire is. Kitchen is well supplied with everything you would need, including a slow cooker. I personally found the double bed to soft but my partner liked the mattre...more
We loved everything about it apart from the lack of hot water, which seemed to fluctuate somewhat Overall though...lovely.
We have stayed in this house before, we love the space it affords the various family members and the quiet location.
Chywartha is set in a lovely little village with an excellent pub with great food. There’s also a fabulous restaurant too. Its in a fantastic location which offers excellent views. A short stroll to a little beach which was very nice. The cleanliness of the property was a disappointment; especially since we were constantly told not to arrive before 5pm to allow for extra cleaning! The kitchen table was fifthly. However the bathrooms and bedrooms were spotless The decor is a little dated. That being said we had a fantastic break with wonderful weather which always helps.
A really lovely, comfortable house with amazing views. Good location for touring the area and wonderful garden for the children.
Ideal modern holiday let for a couple (and in our case small child). Small but adequate for a holiday in the area. The owners are lovely and always on hand to help if necessary, the property adjacent to their house, in their lovely grounds with a good views, very relaxing. Basically furnished, but a good comfy bed and hot powerful shower. Some pans and utensils were not clean but soon rectified, a dishwasher would have been welcome (instead of a washing machine). The combi oven/microwave took a little getting used to. I wouldn't have wanted to make up the sofa bed each night for other gue...more
We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay the cottage has such wonderful views of the harbour and its very clean and cozy. We will definitely be returning and staying in this beautiful cottage. Xxx
Spindrift is in an ideal location, away from any noise from traffic etc. The property itself is well appointed with a full range of white goods, flat screen TV, DVD and radio/cd player. Private parking right outside of the property is very convenient. Would definitely book again.
Great little bungalow, well equipped and clean. So close to the sea. Great friendly owners, who were extremely helpful
Beautiful cottage with everything you'd need. Comfortable furniture & a lovely wood burning fire..shame to leave..
Thanks to Richard at Cornwall Cottages for an easy booking system and all the information provided before our trip. Thanks to Mel and Alan who look after the property and were super quick to respond to my email when I had a question late one Sunday night. Quaint cottage was just what we needed for the week. Thanks all
We really enjoyed our stay at The Watch House. It was very comfortable and in a perfect location. We particularly loved the beautiful views from nearly every window in the whole apartment, the main living area and being able to go straight out to the sea. It felt like we were in the heart of things and we didn't have to use our car for the whole week. The Watch House is a very nice place to stay. The bedrooms are a decent size and the shower is excellent. Just a couple of small points: The apartment is above a restaurant (absolutely excellent by the way) and a fish and chip takeaw...more
We thoroughly enjoyed our week at Polhendra Barn. We usually stay in Portscatho itself, but really enjoyed being in the peaceful countryside just outside the town - still within walking distance! Being outside the town allowed for more outdoor space in general. A lovely lawn for our boys to play on and large patio with table and sofas, gorgeous lavender bushes and sunshine all day long. Perfect for outdoor meals in the Summer. The interior is simple and spacious. The beds amazingly comfortable with lovely crisp, white linens. More kitchen utensils, crockery, cups and cutlery would b...more
Quince cottage is a beautiful place is a quiet location. It was perfect for us! The rooms were very clean, beds are incredibly comfy and the kitchen is absolutely gorgeous!! Could not fault the place. I definitely think this will be an annual trip!
Lovely place to stay near lots of amenities , modern great furniture, we felt very comfortable every room has a tv. Nice getting on arrival.
We had a great holiday in Pip’s Cottage. It is small but the ingenious use of the available space plus the attractive interior design overcame this. We spent most of our time out walking the various spectacular coastal paths and did not really cook at the cottage but it was well equipped had we wanted to. We chose to use the bedroom next to the bathroom which was very comfortable. The steep staircase as advertised up to the pretty attic room did not deter us but the strong musty smell up there did.
I would definitely recommend the apartment for a family stay. It was clean, comfortable and spacious. Ideal for our needs. Close to Bude and had sea views. The owner was very welcoming, thoughtful and friendly. We had a lovely holiday and would stay again as it has everything that you could want.
This was my 4th stay at Cobblers, I love it so much. Small but absolutely perfectly formed! Would love it even more if there was a mirror in main bedroom and a second pillow on all beds but love the little touches like the flowers, biscuits and milk, so kind. Thank you.
We had a lovely time at Brackley Cottage in St Mawes. The cottage is small but everything is perfectly laid out and worked really well. Perfect for a family with small children like us, or a couple. Cornwall Cottages were great and really helpful. The fridge could do with an ice box for freezing cool packs or storing ice cream. It would be great if the minuscule yard space could have a couple of hooks put up for drying wet suits. The window in the little bedroom could do with a window lock to ensure little kids can’t open it. We did sometimes get some noise late at night from the little pub r...more
We had an amazing week staying at Tantallon. The house is in the perfect location for exploring the Roseland peninsula and a short drive into St Mawes. There is plenty of entertaining space in the house and a lovely garden which is child friendly, dog friendly and has the most stunning view! Everything has been thought of in the property from well stocked kitchen to plenty of storage in bedrooms for clothes and comfortable beds. Couldn’t recommend this property more highly.
This was our 4th stay in this comfy cottage with its fab views, peace & quiet. We booked back in January (before Covid) and were a little concerned about the safety aspects of our stay. We needn’t have worried, the cottage was spotless when we arrived and the faint smell of bleach when we opened the door was actually reassuring (& soon faded too)! Since our first visit in 2015 we have noticed a few slight signs of wear and tear around the windows and doors but the comfort is unaffected. We had a lovely relaxing break and will be returning again. Many thanks to the owners, caretakers and cleane...more
We came down to Cornwall on 29th September until 6th October 2018 and stayed at Number One in St Mawes. We found the apartment very comfortable and it felt like home to home! On arrival the tea and biscuits were very welcoming after our journey there. The location of the apartment was perfect, as we were only 30 seconds from the harbour! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and we hope to come again next year.
Pair of dirty pants left by other guests. Large crumbs and thick dust in lounge. Hot water was boiling hot, a danger for children and one tap operated in the wrong direction. Beds were tired and uncomfortable. Childrens toys, games and books still in property even though they should have been removed (covid 19).
We had a lovely stay at Coppers and the sun shone too! House is roomy with lots of outside space and beautiful views . The bonus of car parking and utility room was much appreciated . Lovely location and although steep climb to the house from St Mawes, there are easier routes to find ! Thoroughly recommend.
Spotlessly clean and very comfortable house with great facilities and very well equipped kitchen. We loved the patio and garden .... such a view! Being in short walking distance to the beaches, the town and great walks We had a lovely holiday
It was very good holiday ever here in UK. With so much to see . The swimming pool and Jacuzzi and the cottage were more than perfect for family.
Second time we have stayed here and will look to book again. It,s a great location and a great cottage, feels like a second home. Lovely welcome pack, clean and homely, great for our dog as the garden is enclosed and quite central to visit places of interest (as long as you have a car). Looking forward to our next stay.
We had a great week in Mylor Bridge, a pretty village which was an excellent base for exploring. Good local amenities - village shop, butcher, fish shop .. the Lemon Arms was very friendly with good pub food, the Pandora Inn along the coast is well worth a visit. Would also recommend Trebah gardens - beautiful. The cottage was just what we needed (especially as it was dog friendly with a nice enclosed garden) and comfortable with plenty of hot water. The kitchen is small, as described on the website, but who wants to cook huge meals on holiday and there is a bbq in the garden! There was pl...more
The property is spacious and ideal for a quiet get away. For anyone trying to find it your satnav tells you to turn left at the end which takes you to Lee Barton Farm - ignore this and turn right and a short way up the hill you will find Forda Farm on the right. There is a small wooden sign but the Lee Barton sign stands out so that you don't notice the Forda Farm sign. It is extremely quiet at night and even though there are chickens in the farmyard and cows very close to the house you don't notice any noise. The owners are very friendly and you can buy fresh eggs daily from the box at ...more
We really enjoyed our stay at Toadstools- the garden was delightful with seating in 2 separate areas to sit out and enjoy a drink or a meal. The cottage was home from home and very comfortable.
Great location lovely apartment very clean and modern. Lovely food in The Stable would stay again 10
We have just enjoyed a wonderful week at Nare View. The house is very comfortable and had everything we needed for our stay. The house is so light and has such a good feel to it. The sun room is the perfect spot to sit and enjoy the view and also a great place to dry beach clothes. The utility room at the back is a good size and a very useful place to store beach gear. We enjoyed sitting in the lounge in the evenings, plenty of seating for us all. The bed linen was very comfortable and there was plenty of storage in the main double bedroom. The garden is lovely; it is very well maintained and ...more
Cottage was clean and tidy in an excellent location and everything provided so we had a great time.No need to travel far if you want a relaxing break. Beach,pub, restaurants and local shop all within walking distance. Lovely part of Cornwall. Only negative was the downstairs bathroom but no big problem.
Having stayed in April Cottage previously, we knew what to expect, although there is some road noise due to location on main road into St Mawes, this visit seemed quieter, possibly due to expecting it, maybe it was a little quieter. As we have 3 dogs, the space is ideal and is actuially like a tardis with large rooms. Great communication and efficient in organising cleaning sanitising etc
Really enjoyed our trip, just what we needed. Being on the boat yard was so nice. Lovely walks and very handy for St Mawes town. We did eat out every day so didn’t really use the kitchen. Only suggestion would be new mattress for the bed.
We had a wonderful week based at Lestowder. It is right out in the countryside making it peaceful and relaxing.
Lovely location, maybe a little more description on the path to the house would have been helpful, it's very dark at night and in bad weather extremely slippy. The car park spaces are tight and I would imagine a 4x4 or wide cars would struggle. Lovely views and rooms, not many would have been nice to have some throws in the sitting room for chilly evenings. Quite dusty. Garden is splendid. It has electric stowage heaters, albeit mostly modern, but this is not central heating as stated.
This cottage has a lovely ‘upside down’ aspect, with abundant views of the countryside (and lovely owner gardens) from the pleasant and light sitting room. The owner was friendly and provided lots of local information-and we loved the flowers! The beds were surprisingly comfortable and, despite the property adjoining a road, it was mostly quiet. The location is the main thing - it’s very well placed for Carne and Pendower beaches and driving there is quick and easy. Take note: there is also a lovely walk to these beaches, but it is moderate and slightly hilly, so it’s easier to drive ...more
Bay Cottage was clean, cosy, comfortable and in a fantastic location on the coast path and a stones throw from a small beach.
The cottage is in a fantastic village with great pub and shop. It is quiet and peaceful and close to lovely beaches. The cottage Itself is very clean, well kitted out and big enough for a family of 5 with 3 teenage kids. The owner was incredibly helpful when we had to inadvertently stay a few extra hours and very responsive. In order to improve a stay for any future renters then I would strongly recommend that the bed in the master bedroom is replaced. The mattress is not very comfortable and the bed creaks very loudly every time you move. We also couldn’t get the WiFi to work at all whic...more
Great place to spend time in Falmouth. Location good for town centre and beaches. Allocated parking was a bonus.
Lovely cottage full of character in a really great location. Moments walk from Wadebridge without having to sit in the traffic and close to lots of beaches. Parking out the front was helpful too. The cottage is self catering but this also means you need toilet roll, soap, washing up liquid etc so ensure you take everything.
We love the location of this property, perfect for our stay. Right on the beach, amazing sunsets, lovely coastal walks and the best cream teas around just up the path. You are definitely the envy of everyone on the beach! Listening to the waves day and night is so calming. We had a very relaxing week; however, we were disappointed with a few things. The beds (as others have mentioned) are in desperate need of replacement, so does the bed linen. As for the cleanliness of the cottage, we found hairs in the bedlinen, a couple of bits of rubbish in the lounge where the cleaners hadn’t moved the...more
We booked New Quay house because it was one of the few places that was able to accommodate 7 adults comfortably though we were 6. It had it's own private carpark which makes it very convenient. 3 very good size bedrooms, 2 large bathrooms plus a small shower room, comfortable living room, dining area and the kitchen is well equipped unlike most holiday homes. All these made our stay very comfortable and convenient for self catering. Flushing itself is a small village just across from Falmouth and we took the ferry across for one day. The views from the cottage is amazing and there is also a fr...more
We had a wonderful stay at Helsett Farmhouse. A true escape from the big smoke of Bristol. The house was clean and spacious with a wonderful big kitchen. The children took over the living room as their play room and we cooked feasts in the kitchen or on the bbq outside. The paved area outside was a wonderful chalk painting gallery by the end of our stay. The only thing missing we thought was a verandah on the sunny evening side so you could be outside even in the rain but we were so lucky with the weather and explored nearby Trebarwith sands, Crackington Beach (wonderful pub: first pint o...more
Thank you for letting us stay in your lovely family house. We had a great holiday making the most of the garden and the water. The house is well equipped which makes it all easy and comfortable. Thank you Sarah for getting a sunshade delivered for us so speedily.
A beautiful period property with plenty of space for all 3 generations of my family including our 4 legged friends. It was fully equipped with everything you need if you have a house full, which we did. We will definitely be returning.
Lovely light and airy living space in a great location for the village. Well stocked kitchen but let down by very old washing up bowl which would but such a simple/cheap item to replace. Also, 10tog duvets in the summer were way too heavy.
We had a really great stay at Driftwood. The location was the main reason we chose this property, it's a minutes walk to Porthtowan beach. We also discovered the two pubs within two minutes away, which was useful for eating out. The house itself was more than adequate for just the two of us. Its a simple/basic house (and that makes sense being so close to the beach). We had a great holiday!
The house is bright and well equipped with a nice little garden. Good position in Polzeath with easy walk to the village. Hithertwo and Comehither we’re booked at the same time for a family holiday and it would have been able nice to be able to access Comehither without having to go outside!
The cottage was very warm but rather shabby and needed painting at least. The owner was very helpful when we had a problem with a heater and had a couple of questions. It could generally have been cleaner and the beds and bed linen better quality. We would not go there again but enjoyed our holiday anyway.
The key code was not clear (it contained a letter when the keypad was only numbers!) there was no phone signal for mobiles for us to call the owner so we had to use the public phone on the main road (which will shortly be decommissioned meaning a car ride back up the hill to get mobile phone signal) Our paperwork stated we had a parking space outside the villa, yet the folder inside the property said we needed to park in the overflow. Despite displaying the permit clearly and parking without causing obstructions-we twice received slips on our car informing us we were not parked correctly. Th...more
We found this holiday apartment to be cosy, quiet and well equipped. It was clean and spacious and we felt relaxed being there. It had a short, if steep walk to the amenities but this was part of the charm! Our only reservation about our stay was that the double bed desperately needs a new mattress. On one side, the springs have gone and it slopes badly because of it. We propped up that side by putting the cushions under the mattress.
We have stayed for many years in Porthtowan for our family holidays, we love the location for the surf, coastal walks and fabulous sunsets. Staying at The Dunes gives us the comfortable base to enjoy all the activities and a garden to relax in watching the sunsets. We will hopefully be back next year.
I came with my husband and our Westie for a week of exploring Cornwall. The cottage had everything we needed to allow us to cook and eat in some nights as well as being close to some lovely pubs and restaurants to eat out. We were able to use the pool which was lovely and my Husband enjoyed immensely a lovely feature for this cottage. The access to the field for our dog was excellent aswell and we felt very relaxed here. We would return again
The cottage was in a lovely setting and in good condition. The minus sides were no welcome pack and the facilities advertised were not up to scratch the children’s play area was tatty and torn and the recreational grass to kick a ball around in was covered in dogs muck. The maintenance guy was very moody and just let his dog roam free. I also think we should have had a discount as most of the facilities were not available. A most unfriendly note was left to tell us to clean and vacuum everything but no nice welcome pack usually found. The swimming pool was covered and we were told after a coup...more
Another wonderful stay , and I was so lucky with the weather. Lots of lovely walks despite the coast path being extremely muddy in places . Best roast lunch at The New Inn Veryan 6 veg all beautifully cooked . Carne beach was wonderful as was all the coast with high winds and huge waves . Looking forward to my next stay in 8 weeks .
We found that the duvets and bedding were past their best. The loo in the middle bathroom flush did not work. The fire alarm was the wrong kind of alarm situated above the cooker as it went off every time we opened the oven door. Heat not smoke. The caretaker was basically un welcoming and rude.
Small but we expected that but place smelt mouldy and had a smell of dogs wee even though they don't allow dogs I think one has been in there. The fridge dripped water all the time and kettle looked rusty on the bottom. We also found rotting fruit under chairs in the living room. Apart from that location was excellent.
Overall it was a great stay in Cornwall. It was good value for money, the decor is looking dated but it was clean and warm. The shower drain was blocked on the first evening, but this was rectified quickly. We had the pool to ourselves which was a bonus.
Amazing sea views from both bedroom and living room. Being a more mature couple found the stairs a little tiring, and it was a very steep walk down into St Ives.
Lovely bungalow in a wonderful location - Portscatho is a great place for a holiday and Seabreeze has everything we needed to enjoy our holiday there. We felt very safe in the bungalow and also in the village during these COVID times and can thoroughly recommend Seabreeze to anyone considering a holiday in Cornwall - especially with their dog as there is also a wonderful dog-friendly beach on your doorstep.
An honest review. Had a great week at River View. Fantastic views of Falmouth. The house is on a hill and has excellent views from both double bedrooms especially the top floor. Good bathrooms, very comfy beds. This property has no parking which could prove problematic, but there are a lot of side streets, some on hills, where you will find a place to park. There is a little pull in for dropping off and picking up bags etc but it's on yellow lines. It was used a lot whilst we were there, including us. We struggled to find River View at first, as you have to go up some steps and then wal...more
Saturday 30th August - Saturday 5th August Sarum is a pleasant property in a quiet location with beautiful views and just 2 minutes walk from a fantastic 16th Century pub serving good food. It’s located just a 30 minute walk from Boscastle Village also taking in fabulous views. Unfortunately there are some minuses about the management of Sarum which could easily be improved upon! On arrival you have to switch on the water tank so that you can have hot water for showering that evening of arrival and in the morning... this information was in the property information folder, which was on the bot...more
We felt the accommadation, although comfortable, was a bit overpriced. It would have been nice to have a television in at least one of the bedrooms, so that when people wanted to watch different programmes, they could do so.
This was a sweet cosy cottage with everything we needed for our week long stay as a couple with a baby. Amazing location being right near the water.
The house was a little tried. Problems with electric resulted in many blown light bulbs. Coffee machine not workings on arrival and took until Monday to get replacement and only after a prompt.kitchen cupboards a total mess and needs good clear out and some sort of logic made of the many plates etc! Living room settees were very uncomfortable very lumpy.
We can imagine that this cottage would be great in the summer but we do not recommend it in the winter. It was very damp and musty smelling. It was cold when we arrived, the heaters were not working properly. The heating is electric plug in heaters in the bedrooms and night storage heaters in the living and dining room. They didn't give out enough heat in the day when we needed it. In the morning condensation dripped down the windows. The windows were very difficult to open in order to air the property out as the frames are damaged by the damp and in places, as outside of the living room, ro...more
We had a lovely stay here. The cottage is about to be renovated, and I'm sure that will only add to its charm. Location couldn't be better, garden is really lovely. Many thanks for the wine and flowers on arrival too!
We stayed in Pendeen Cottage in mid July shortly after the lockdown was eased and were not sure how a Cornwall Cottage Holiday would work out. We certainly were not disappointed and were impressed at how the owners of Pendeen Cottage handled all the uncertainties that presented themselves in a covid era. The cottage had recently been renovated and decorated during lockdown which was pleasing to see although the we had to ask for a new mattress on one of the beds which had completely collapsed. However, we were amazed to see that 2-hours after reporting this, a brand new mattress was delivered!...more
With the ongoing improvements, carpets, ensuite, second tv ,garden furniture and general cleanliness all improved.Well done for updating.
Loved it.home from home.beautiful view could do with brighter light in bedroom.could do with new suite.other then that perfect.
The cottage was pleasant and in a good location and we had a great holiday. However the cottage needs a makeover as it was very tired and not as comfortable as you would expect today. Because of covid we expected a very clean cottage but this wasn't the case. Several cobwebs were apparent and the thick dust on top of the wardrobe in the front bedroom was very disappointing. The shower might have been cleaned before we arrived but it certainly hadn't been wiped down. I could go on and this is why we thought it poor value for money
Portscatho is a wonderful choice to stay and Hillside Cottage is perfectly located in the centre. Pub & Restaurant on the doorstep and fantastic local store and butchers next door. Cottage extremely well equipped with all kitchen utensils, plenty glassware, cleaning, bin bags etc. 2 bathrooms a bonus too. If it had king size bed I would’ve rated it excellent. A BBQ would be a useful addition to add, especially with a butchers next door.
lovely field with 5 other yurts. Very clean and well maintained communal kitchen and bathroom. Lovely play park for the kids and fabulous swimming pool and Hot tub. We were able to sit out on our porch after the kids went to sleep which was lovely. There is a bit of noise from traffic from the road but it is a really convenient spot.
We had to book at short notice and were delighted to find this property - very comfortable, for the most part well furnished and equipped and with a view that couldn’t be bettered (we know St Mawes well). It appears that the owners are investing in the property by updating and renewing on a rolling basis which is good to see. The housekeeper was helpful when we needed to contact her. Our only quibble is that it is described as a luxury property - it’s very comfortable but not luxurious, and doesn’t need to be, so our quibble isn’t with the house but with the marketing.
Ideal size for 2 people, very modern little flat. There is no view which spoils this lovely place Parking can be an issue when busy There was a dog odour upon arrival and the air fresheners were masking this. As others have said for future a laminate floor would be ideal. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend this flat as a great base in Cornwall to use as a base. Value for money and has everything you need.
This was our first time visiting Cornwall for many years, but could not speak highly enough of Tresooth Cottages. Probably 2 or 3 miles from the local pub and supermarket but such a brilliant hideaway. Make sure to cvisit Argal Reservoir for some fishing, Swan pool beath for kayaking and remember plenty of change for pay and display car parks
nice place will furnished clean etc , parking was a bit hit and miss and quite a steep hill which would be difficult for some people but overall enjoyed the stay would recommend it for people without kids or elderly people
We stayed here as a group of 5 adults. The cottage had more than enough room and was clean when we arrived. There were additional precautions in place for COVID. We really enjoyed the pool area. The games room and jacuzzi were closed due to COVID. The decor is quite average but it is comfy and clean.
Lovely little cottage on a working farm. Owners were very nice and very helpful. Quite remote but enjoyed the quietness, very relaxing. Only one point think it could do with up dating inside to make it a bit more comfy.
We loved our stay at The Primrose yurt. Facilities were good and Andy could not have been friendlier. I would definitely recommend this site but will give some feedback on improvements but please do not take these as anything other than advice. I would have liked to have had the bedding and towels changed as the site was wet and muddy so by the end of the week they were in a bit of a mess, we would have been happy to do this ourselves if they were available. The temperature at night was a bit too cold despite having the heater on all the time, this would have been better had the weather been w...more
This is a really nice little cottage in a peaceful location - and all at a very good price for the area. It’s small but functional, equipped reasonably well (we had no issues feeding a family of four with what we had). Kids loved the bunk beds. Only slight negative is water pressure - it’s very low so taking a shower is challenging, you’d be better off using a water pistol :). Also worth of mention that if you don’t like spiders - you may want to vacuum the ceilings when you arrive as we did - the countryside location means there are loads of them around! We would definitely consider using...more
Generally everything was great thanks. Some feedback below We could not find the house despite following the directions. Ivy has grown over the house name plate. Particularly unhelpful was that Richard did not answer his phone to help us find the place. Perhaps someone else could take on that job! Also the plug in the kitchen sink doesn't work and there is no washing up bowl...consequently we were using too much hot water.
Our check in was pushed to 5pm to allow for cleaning to COVID-19 guidelines. This meant we really struggled to park anywhere near the house as the garage had been removed from being at our disposal due to COVID-19. I rang Daniel but got no response. We unpacked on the double yellows and parked a 10 minute walk away. Parking was better during the week but always a bit stressful. The house was not clean - there was a fingernail clipping and a false nail in the living room. Words fail me. The bedside lamps in the bedroom with a view could not be plugged in either. I rang Daniel who asked for pi...more
We had come from a house in Devon before our stay in Cornwall and unfortunately it highlighted how poor the cleanliness was of this property. When we arrived I had to bleach the work tops and we had to clean the bathrooms. Toilets were stained and the showers were dirty, the fridge was dirty and the freezer still had food in it! We hoovered and managed to fill the hoover with dust from the floor and carpets. With current COVID regulations I expected more! There were no mattress or pillow protectors. I didn’t feel comfortable staying in this house due to the lack of cleanliness which is a shame...more
