Just what we had hoped for, Bumbledown Cottage gave the impression of being in the middle of nowhere but was only minutes away from Cornwall's motorway giving us easy access to explore the whole county with ease. The cottage was extremely well equipped and the perfect retreat after our busy days out. Our hosts were on hand if required but otherwiseRead more we felt like we were on our own - just like we hoped. Our only disappointment was we were only there for a week - nowhere near long enough!

Easy to find from directions supplied. Very quiet location, with good local shopping in village. Easy access to A30 to get anywhere. Owners very friendly and unobtrusive. Responded quickly to a small problem.

We loved the cottage and its position, equipment was reduced due to the restrictions with the Corona Virus, but it did not have an impact on our stay. Dorothy & Paul were great hosts and on hand if we needed any help, even bless them collecting our Curry for us on our last night!

The cottage was just as we had hoped, immaculately clean, well equipped and very comfortable. We felt at home immediately and very safe and relaxed, which was a relief in the present Covid climate. The owners were lovely, we felt like nothing would have been too much trouble, although we didnt need anything. Would recommend to anyone.

No improvements required, was a lovely cottage in a perfect position, just a short drive and your on the A30 to explore Cornwall, but set in a perfect village setting. Owners were warm and welcoming but left us nicely to ourselves, Had a cream tea waiting when we arrived. Couldn't have asked for better.
