Very Clean & Well Equipped Cottage

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was great - very clean and tidy and equipped with everything that we needed. The towels and linen were fresh and clean and the Cornish Cream Tea that was waiting for us when we arrived was much appreciated. Unfortunately it rained every day we were in Lostwithiel which did detract a little from the overall holiday experience! We were very pleased to have an efficient heating and hot water system. Parking is on the street outside the cottage and is on a "first come, first served" basis so a couple of times we had to park some distance from the house overnight - but we were OK with that. We also found it impossible to walk our dogs without driving out of Lostwithiel as the riverside and nearest parks in the town ban dogs - we found a suitable open space on Restormel Road, just out of town on the way to Restormel Castle, which we used a couple of times each day. Cleaning up after your dogs there is easy as bins are provided. We also found that most local beaches ban dogs between Easter and 30th September - so you will need to check. The tiny cottage garden is all patio so unsuitable for dog exercising. So, in conclusion, the cottage itself is nigh on perfect but as we had our dogs with us and the weather was appalling, it makes things a bit more difficult. We wouldn't hesitate to return without dogs.

Lovely cosy cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay in this little cottage. It had everything we needed with a fully equipped kitchen. The welcome cream tea was a real bonus and made us feel at home straight away. The weather on the other hand was not good and we were so wet and cold on our last day that we had to light to woodburner to get dry!

Lostwithiel is a lovely town and is located perfectly for exploring all parts of Cornwall.

Highly recommended holiday cottage

  • 5 of 5

We have rented holiday homes all over the world and this has been one of our best breaks ever.

Booking the cottage was so quick and easy with the owner very responsive.

Information sent was comprehensive and helped with planning our stay.

The cottage was very clean and tidy and a true home from home. The welcoming scones, etc, flowers and basics in the fridge was also a pleasant surprise.

Cottage was nicely decorated and furnished - comfy sofas.

Kitchen small but well equipped with dishwasher and decent size fridge/freezer.

Little garden was useful for our al fresco dining - we were very lucky with the weather.

Location-wise, you are minutes from town with a choices of pubs, a bank and other little shops.

Food at the Earl of Chatham across the street was excellent and a very friendly waitress. In fact, have to stay most people in Cornwall are delightful and friendly.

Must not forget the Co-Op grocery store nearby which is so well stocked and we really didn't need to venture further for food during our stay. My Tesco home delivery was not necessary.

Some lovely walks in this part of the world including some that mean a car isn't always required.

All in all, a loverly rental property and an excellent base to venture out and see all the delights that Cornwall has to offer.

Definitely stay at Petroc Cottage again (and again!)

Wonderfol cosy home

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful time there. Two great weeks in a nice and cosy home. Everything you need is there, fully equipped kitchen, cosy living room, wonderful garden. Everything you want to go, you can walk: shopping, Pubs, cafés. Could have moved directly in there. We definitely return.
