Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Very central to reach all the obvious landmarks in this beautiful county. Does exactly what it says on the tin!! Sept 2012.
  2. This was the best cottage we have ever stayed in, excellent facilities and nice personal touches such as daffodils on the dining table and a bottle of wine and glasses on the coffee table. Decor was lovely with bright bedrooms and wonderful white bedding and duvet covers. The bed was very very comfortable and I even slept through the first night which is unusual. The property is very spacious, much more so than the usual holiday home with a large warm utility room complete with drying rack - great after a wet day (and we had several of those). Also, it was very unusual to have a jacuzzi and sauna - I really can’t fault anything. Apriil 2012.
  3. The property is a lot more spacious than it looks in the photos. We regularly rent cottages in the UK and this has to be just about the best value for money we have had. The hot tub was the icing on the cake, just the thing after a day out walking and exploring. Highly recommended. March 2012.
  4. This is the second time to this cottage, you cannot fault the place, with the added bonus of the saw, which I used every day and hot-tub. The garden is lovely, managed to get out there one day, because of weather! They have got everything there, I found more books to read from bookshelf, and there are games for families there too. The only thing I found against the cottage, is there is not good connection to phones, mine being vodafone, which was nil, and good not get internet connection, but my husband could get T-mobile. But can’t fault the cottage!! Would recommend to friends! Sept 2011.
  5. Owner had thought of everything including leaving coals for BBQ, towels, toys, washing up liquid. A really nice touch was the bottle of wine left for us on arrival. A great location for getting out and about around south Cornwall. Flambards just 5 miles away and Lands End and Lizard not that far away. Poldark Mine just 300 yards down road. Had a great week, very comfortable, spacious and like i say everything thought of.
  6. Lovely cottage in a excellent location. Very clean. the hot tub was a lovely bonus at the end of the day. May 2011.
  7. Fabulous cottage and location. Very well placed for exploring south Cornwall. Facilities are excellent...especially the hot tub and sauna! Much appreciated after a day of hiking and hill walking!! Would definately stay here again. May 2011.
  8. Beautiful cottage, nice and quiet. Hot tub was a great addition. Stunning scenery. Will be going back down again. March 2011.
  9. Well appointed, well fitted and comfortable. Feb 2011.
  10. So homely, very well-equipped, an amazing place to stay! Dec 2010.
  11. Welcoming, clean & tidy. Good little touches - wine on arrival. Nov 2010.
  12. Everything. Location, size, cleanliness, decor, cost. Oct 2010.
  13. The property was clean. The owners had thought of everything a family may need while on holiday right down to a sewing kit. They provided a bottle of wine on arrival. we loved everything about it. Aug 2010.
  14. Beautifully presented - It had everything we needed especially games & books for the evenings. The jacuzzi room was brilliant, & the beach toys, windbreak and unbrellas were really appreciated. Aug 2010.
