Perfect holiday for relaxing, we had our honeymoon there and couldn't have chose a better place!!

Reviewed by Peter, 19th November 2017

This was a spacious comfortable cottage for the two of us and our dog, Trigger. The decoration was extremely tasteful and the walk in shower wonderful after a brisk chilly walk over the moors or along the cliffs above the waves. I would heartily recommend this cottage as a base for exploring far flung Cornwall.

Great place to stay. Every comfort has been provided. Lovely welcome pack which was perfect as a Cornish cream tea was top of the list of "must haves".I know people always say they will return but we WILL be back but for longer next time. Best cottage we have ever stayed in. Thank you.

I can't say this was home from home, because it was better than home from home! We definitely recommend this property, and hope to return next year.

Reviewed by Terence, 24th March 2017

Very good location and very easy to find,only thing was that we did not see the track that goes from the road to the property until the last day and went through the farm each day.(My wife was informed before we went but she forgot.)I have ticked the recommend box but if I could keep it a secret and be selfish so as to keep it just for us I would.

Over the years we have stayed in many self catering properties and have no reservations in recommending Carsnew as the best ever.

Reviewed by Robert, 10th March 2017

The cottage was the best place that we have stayed in , very comfortable and tastefully decorated ( a home from home). Had everything that you could possibly need and it was lovely walking into the cottage to find a beautiful bunch of daffodils ,scones ,cream and jam 'wonderful'.
