About the Owner

My husband and I are both middle aged and our children have all married and left home over the past ten years and we were left rattling around in our large property with our also very large Leonburger dog who is hugely popular with guests staying in the cottage.

We decided this year that we should let the annexe cottage out for holiday let as we feel that guests who like animals and wildlife will love our Hooty owl cottage.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Despite this being a new property available this year so far visitors have thouroughly enjoyed their stay with us and want to rebook again for next year. Very clean and extremely comfortable. Excellent facilities within the cottage and on site in the park and on site tearoom. Good value for money and very friendly property owners and staff within the park.

Outstanding experience

  • 5 of 5

We could only spend 5 days before flying back to Australia. A truly memorable experience to be able to visit the owls (don't forget the Kookaburra) at any time, day or night. Carolyn and her husband were helpful at the sanctuary and with imparting their local knowledge. They introduced us to a local wildlife artist, Dick Twinney, whose work is stunning. Cottage was immaculate, tastefully furnished and had everything we needed to be cosy and comfortable and Carolyn had supplied a snack for our arrival. All the staff at the Sanctuary were friendly, knowledgeable and always happy to answer questions. We learnt and handled many different varieties of owls and loved hearing their stories. There was absolutely nothing we could complain about! My grandchildren want to go there to experience the wildlife and play in the enormous playground. They also had a range of other animals, eg meerkats, goats, llamas, etc and we enjoyed helping with their feeding and talks about their habits.

Cozy cottage in owl sanctuary

  • 5 of 5

We spent 2 weeks in this lovely cottage in Cornwall, part of an owl sanctuary. The hosts were superb - friendly, gracious and extremely accommodating. The cottage was fully equipped with linens and kitchen supplies. Furnishings were all attractive and comfortable, including the bed. A shared washing machine was very helpful to have on request. The accommodation alone was enough to recommend a stay here but the owls provided an additional incentive for the stay: a truly unique experience to enhance an exploration of Cornwall. Hiking trails right out the door also allowed easy access to the beautiful English countryside. This cottage is excellent for couples or small families; the owl sanctuary is an outstanding added feature for nature lovers of all ages. We highly recommend this accommodation and would certainly return on future visits to Cornwall, the best endorsement we can give.

Really comfy cottage

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is situated within the owl sanctuary itself. We found it to be just like staying at home, especially while sleeping in the kingside bed. Our children loved staying within the owl sanctuary, and at the end of our week my son did not want to return home. If he could have lived there he would have.

Would recommend anyone who loves owls to visit as you get to see the owls at night and have unlimited access to the sanctuary day or night.

The owners are really friendly and cannot do enough for you.
