We spent a very peaceful week at the cottage, the hosts were charming and very friendly. Everything was catered for and was ideal for exploring the area-a big thank-you!

Perfectly located on the edge of Newquay. The welcome pack was amazing with fresh croissants, coffee, tea etc. The added touches of Dressing Gowns, Slippers and everything else made it feel so special. Les and his wife were very very friendly. So clean and cosy accommodation that I can't recommend it highly enough.

We spent a long weekend at Colcharton Old Forge and had a wonderful relaxing time with cosy evenings spent by the fire. Location is great with a trip into Tavistock only a few minutes in the car. If you are looking to a cosy cottage, in a relaxing location then you cannot go wrong. The owners Mr and Mrs Edwards were really helpful and welcomed us wRead moreith a tray to make tea and biscuits. I would absolutely recommend. Hide

Reviewed by Tim, 4th June 2016

The cottage was a very clean and well situated building,the kitchen had ample good quality equipment, and the cottage is far enough away from the main farm to be private. The owners are very easy to get on with and are as helpful as you want them to be. All in all it was a very pleasant week, with so many things to do and visit it must be a strong Read moredraw to return. Hide
