A great stay in a fantastic cottage

  • 5 of 5

We just wanted to say a really big thank you for sharing your beautiful cottage, Little Cobbetts with us last week. We had an absolutely fabulous time, felt at home immediately we arrived and our dog Flora loved the garden and looking out of the gate at passing people/cars.

It is situated in such a convenient area and we loved exploring Bude, Rock and driving a little further afield to places such as Watergate Bay were we had visited many years ago when our children were small.

We hope to be back sometime in the future and would recommend this cottage to anyone looking for a relaxing, home from home break.

Small and Perfectly Formed

  • 5 of 5

Lovely cottage, centrally located near the west coast of Northern Cornwall - a perfect base for exploring beautiful Cornwall. The cottage welcomes humans and dogs, so your pet can holiday, too!

We enjoyed the pretty cottage with its fully outfitted kitchen, tranquil setting, and easy access to Camelford. It was neat and tidy upon arrival and it's lovely decor was welcoming, too.

We enjoyed the farm shop and restaurant nearby, just outside Port Isaac, called Trevathan Farm where we had the best Victoria Sponge cake in Cornwall!


You'll enjoy the fabulous amenities, quality communication with the owners, and a perfect stay.

Cosy comfortable cottage

  • 5 of 5

Upon arrival the cottage was warm, welcoming and tastefully furnished. There were fresh flowers and a welcome hamper. The cottage was extremely well equipped and contained everything we needed. The location was great for exploring north Cornwall, with its excellent beaches and beautiful countryside. There was good communication with the owners throughout the whole booking process and everything else. I would definitely like to go back and would recommend this property to others.

Little Cobbetts - Luxury

  • 5 of 5

Everything you need at this lovely luxury cottage. You don't need to bring anything with you except your clothes! Beach towels provided, books, dvd's, games, jigsaws you name it they have it at this cottage. The hamper on arrival, toiletries, cleaning products were all brilliant and meant we didn't have to pick anything up during our stay. This place is in a very quiet location and has its own parking space right by the door. The Garden is bigger than the images suggest and was plenty big enough for my 2 boys 4 and 6 to run around in and play outside in. Highly recommend this place, it is cosy and luxurious.

What a Great Cosy Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Having spent many years in some great holiday cottages I was apprehensive in expectations as to what Little Cobbetts offered but I was not disappointed. I can say that the inventory was the most comprehensive I have come across and bang up to date with WiFi, Blu ray,Smart HDTV etc. The owners has taken careful consideration in ensuring you enjoy a comfortable break. The welcoming hamper was an splendid touch with thought gone into it and ensured you would not go short if you arrived too late to be able to go shopping. The town of Camelford, just a short drive or within walking distance offered the convenience you require for shopping, dining and fast food. The location formed a good base for discovering what the North coast of Cornwall offered and included some great dog friendly beaches.

I wouldn't hesitate in recommending this cottage to anybody.

Lovely cottage

  • 4 of 5

A lovely clean, well equipped and cosy cottage, a great choice for a first Christmas away from home. The weather was absolutely terrible with gale force winds and hail storms but the cottage was so warm it was a joy to arrive back after we did venture outside. Great to have the washer/dryer which was used a lot. Also the slipper bath was heaven. We were worried that the garden wouldn't be secure enough for our 2 medium sized dogs but we really needn't have worried as it was perfectly fine, not a huge garden but this wasn't a problem as the location was great, whether you want walks or beaches, so don't let this put dog owners off. The booking process was easy and the owner was very friendly and helpful, the welcome pack was lovely and definitely the best we have ever had.
