About John and Marie Prince

We live in Lichfield in South Staffordshire and have two boys (aged 13 and 11) and have been enjoying family holidays to Cornwall for 13 years!

John and Marie Prince purchased this cottage in 2004

Why John and Marie Prince chose Budock

Falmouth and the area around it has been a favourite holiday destination for us for many years. When our oldest was born we had the opportunity to buy a cottage at Pendra Loweth and have spent many, many fantastic holidays there as a family. The boys never tire of returning and always find new things to do or places to explore.

What makes this cottage unique

From Pebble Cottage you have everything you need close at hand but returning to the tranquility of Pendra Loweth makes relaxing so easy.

There are numerous places within easy reach as the roads that serve Falmouth provide excellent links to the Helston River, the Lizard Peninsula, Porthleven, Truro and many more interesting towns, villages and beaches.

Lovely, good value, would stay again

  • 5 of 5

Lovely sized tidy cottage, good sized rooms, really well equipped, good pre info and in-cottage instructions. Good communication with owners. Perfect for the beach, 7 mins from nearest supermarket and 10 from centre of Falmouth, with easy access to loads of attractions. Would definitely stay again. Whole family loved it.

Excellent cottage, beautifully appointed

  • 5 of 5

Pebble Cottage exceeded all our expectations. The cottage itself if really well designed and very user friendly. It feels remote yet is close to everything. WIFI is great although phone signal on EE a bit poor but that's not the fault of Pebble Cottage. Walking to the beach takes about 20 mins which was perfect for daily exercise. Will definitely return when back in Cornwall (we are from Australia) and will recommend to family and friends.

Great cottage, great location, great holiday

  • 5 of 5

We were having family holiday. Me the grandmother, my eldest sister and her husband, my adult son and my adult grandson, travelling from Liverpool, London and St Mawes. I had selected and booked the cottage.

The chosen cottage, just on the edge of Falmouth town, was in a perfect position. Driving distance to town and beaches and set in a lovely peaceful, quiet and carefully landscaped surroundings. This holiday park is well kept with a parking space near to the cottage.

Beautiful modern cottage built in traditional Cornish style. Light and modern, in excellent decorative condition, well equipped and well maintained.

Generous supplies of toilet paper, washing up liquid, dishwasher tablets, foil, cling film, seasonings and spices, tea, coffee and sugar, ketchup, kitchen roll etc. which was a pleasant welcome surprise.

Beds were very comfortable and pillows too. Towels were supplied. Shower was hot with good strong power. Over the bath shower which was not slippy and felt safe.

System to heat water and each room simple to operate making this an all year round cottage.

Would certainly book again.

Fabulous base to explore the south of Cornwall

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Pebble cottage for a week. My sister and I with 4 children between us age 19 years- 3 months. The cottage was beautifully presented, very clean and with everything we could need for a great week away from home. The bed was extremely comfortable and there were enough draws a cupboards to store clothes. The kitchen was well equipped and spacious. We appreciated having sharp knives and baking dishes/trays etc enough to cook for the 6 of us. We were very happy to have the dishwasher! The living area was great, plenty of space to spread out. A good selection of DVDs were great too. There was parking outside for one car and we managed to find parking for the other fairly easily although a little further away. My 7 year old son loved the playground in the holiday village and the garden was great too. We enjoyed going to Swanpool and Maenporth beaches both close by. We also went further afield to some of our past favourite places. This included the Screech Owl Sanctuary at Indian Queens and Pandora Inn near Maylor as well as other beaches such the one near Pottscatho and Perranporth. We would 100% recommend staying in Pebble Cottage everything handled with care Many thanks.
