The cottage was well equipped and comfortable. The owner made sure we felt welcome and even baked us a cake which was a lovely gesture. The games barn was a definite hit with the children.

Reviewed by Joan, 8th September 2018

Appreciated cake and wine on arrival, and hot water supply excellent. Cottage decor however uninviting and drawbacks indicated above made it not worth price charged. Cows and farm dogs expected, but continuous barking of house dog from 5.45 am until 7.30 not conducive to restful stay. BRING YOUR OWN HAIR DRYER

We had a lovely weeks stay in Cornwall and this cottage was in a ideal spot for travelling around and visiting all areas and many different places. It is quite remote though so not able to walk to anywhere or a local shop or pub. Ideal for a family though. Its on a farm with Cows which my kids enjoyed seeing. Highly recommended for a lovely weeks hRead moreoliday in a beautiful part of Cornwall. Hide
