We have enjoyed many visits to Cartole Cottages over the years, but this was our first visit following a two year break and the new owners taking over. It was wonderful to discover that the same high standards of cleanliness have been maintained and the welcome as warm as ever. We look forward to returning in the summer. Many thanks to Karl and Miles from the Gahan family.
Well thought out cottage complex with plenty of amenities for dog lovers, such as a big field. The management team are helpful and clearly invest time and money to ensure everything is thought of, even to umbrellas in the cottage to providing wellies. Lovely and clean cottage. Five star stay!
Shippen cottage is really nice and cosy with all the facilities you are likely to need. "Shippen" is just one of several cottages on this former farm site.The whole site is clean and well tended. It is no longer a working farm, but sheep are kept in adjacent fields. Karl and Miles are great guys who do a good job running this set up. It was fairly quiet when we were there as schools had just gone back, but the site has an excellent children's play area and you can imagine little ones or indeed our grandchildren having a great time here. Location is OK, but you do need transport to get aro...more
Had a few days spare so decided to pop back to Cartole for 3 nights, 3rd time this year. First time we've stayed in Penny's cottage and it was a delight considering it is the smallest of the 4 person cottages. As always the cottage is perfectly clean and stocked, Carl & Miles are always a delight to see and are the best of hosts. The new barn is just a fantastic addition to the site and has been well thought out to enhance the whole Cartole experience. Cartole is superbly positioned for days trips out, easy routes to Padstow & Newquay, plus close to Looe & Polperro for breakfast or evening me...more
It started and continued amazingly. Karl let us in early, as we arrived in the rain. The field to walk our dog was just the same as home. Everything in the cottage appeared new and very clean everywhere. The power shower was lovely and the water is soft - we have hard at home and I forgot and used too much shampoo the first time. It is so close to everything, Looe being 4 miles away and the Eden project half an hours drive away. We will definitely be going again.
Beautiful cottage set in the most beautiful location! We would highly recommended this family friendly accommodation that is like a home from home. We would love to stay again in the future!
