Idylic location, very clean and tidy property with everything you need for a peaceful break away!

  • 4 of 5

Ideal location for a break away with my partner and perfect for my dog - very dog friendly. The property was very clean and all the amenities that you would require. Always plenty of hot water and the shower/bathroom facilities and layout were ideal. The owners were helpful and welcoming but also left you very much alone to enjoy your holiday - just the right balance in my opinion!

The late check-in and early check-out meant we did lose time throughout our stay but I guess this is to be expected.

I would recommend and hopefully return :-)

Quiet and Peaceful relaxing stay

  • 4 of 5

What a great place to get away from it all, far enough away from the hustle and bustle but still close enough with a short drive to some great sightseeing spots in the South West.

The only thing that we didn't like was the bed and sofa bed, unfortunately it rained most of our stay and with a dog it meant a lot of time spent indoors and the sofa bed is quite uncomfortable. There are many dog friendly places to go but we didn't like to take a wet dog to the pub. That aside, It is a great place for a short break and I couldn't recommend it highly enough

Delightful weekend stay

  • 4 of 5

Nice greeting from Michael who showed us round. Clean cottage which had the basics. The sofa bed to sit on was most uncomfortable for any length of time. Bed not great for more than a weekend stay either. It was lovely and spacious, very quiet at the end of a twisting typical Cornish lane, we only met a car once coming towards us and also horse.

Clean comfortable and lovely country farm environment

  • 4 of 5

We spent 6 days in the property, it was really rural, whilst clean and offered everything you would expect, no bath tub but practical for cooking basic meals.
