About Viv and Mark

We are Viv and Mark and we live in Newquay with our 2 boys. We love the local area and its been a great place for us all to grow up over the 2 generations! We bought Foxglove Cottage this year and have been working hard to make it into a lovely holiday home. The whole family work in Newquay; I have been teaching in Cornwall for 21 Years and Mark is a builder.

Viv and Mark purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Viv and Mark chose Newquay & St Austell area

We grew up and live in this area so we know it well; in Cornwall and close to Newquay and its lovely beaches has got to be good! The village of Quintrell Downs has lots to offer and a good community too.

What makes this cottage unique

The cottage has loads of character, including a woodburner that can be used in winter months for a real cozy feel, and there are lovely outside spaces to sit and chill.

Lovely property with wonderful garden

  • 4 of 5

This is a lovely property with plenty of space for the 4 of us. Watch out for the low doorways! The garden was large, well maintained with lots of interesting features.

The property was set back from the main road due to its large front garden but proved a little tricky to get out as it is on a busy road.

At the time of our visit there was quite a problem with damp, particularly in the living room at the front of the property. I spoke to the owners about this and they new of the problem and were in the process of trying to resolve the issue.

The owners were very friendly, acting quickly to resolve minor issues and were keen to do all they could to ensure our stay at their property was enjoyable.

I would recommend this property but do be aware it is situated on quite a busy road and I trust that the damp problem will have been attended to.
