Lovely, spacious cottage. Great for families.

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely weeks stay over New Year. Us and three children and our dog. The cottage is in a lovely peaceful location, surrounded by countryside. Lots of parking and the house itself was great. Loads of space for the family to relax together. It had lots of games which the children loved and we spent lots of time playing! Near to lots of places to visit, including the Eden Project. Would highly reccomend for anyone wanting a home from home in a peaceful spot with lots of space.

Superb family cottage

  • 4 of 5

An excellent family accommodation, much bigger than it looks. We stayed as three grandparents, two parents and two grandchildren. There were two large lounges with games, books and dads. A large grassed area to the rear, gated. A supply of buckets and spades, body boards, windbreak etc for the beach. Room for up to 4 cars in front. All fittings seemed fairly new. Large kitchen with fridge/freezer, cooker etc. We had a small problem with drainage to the en-suite shower but that was about to be fixed. No shops in walking distance but a convenience store in the next village and only 2 miles from St Austell with a huge Asia and Tesco. Several beaches nearby, we liked Polkerris and Porthpean. Par beach wasn't too good though - no facilities, poor water quality and a view of the dockside factories!

All in all though an excellent Base for a family holiday!

Brilliant house

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful family holiday, 5 adults and 2 children and this house was perfect in every way. Plenty of room, well equipped kitchen and it was very well maintained to a high standard. The layout was as described but the family room at the back was bigger than the photos suggest and a nice surprise. Easy to get to beaches, shops etc, so can't fault it in any way. Would certainly go back again.

Great base to discover Cornwall

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place to stay,a lot of the attractions are within easy reach. We had 4 adults and 3 children and the videos,games and garden toys for the children were well received and a nice touch. The cottage was very clean and large enough for all of us. Would not hesitate to recommend this cottage to friends and family.

Lovely cottage

  • 4 of 5

This is a beautifully decorated, very well equipped cottage with lots of space which was ideal for our holiday with extended family. There is a lovely big garden with sunny or shaded spots to relax in and for children and animals to run around. The garden is enclosed though the walls are not high in places.

Well Equipped Holiday let

  • 5 of 5

The standard of accommodation was 1st class, situated in a quiet location just outside St Austell. The let is well equipped, our grandson was delighted with the selection of toys and games available. Their is also a decent size garden area for children to play safely.

Highly recommended
