absolutely lovely

  • 5 of 5

This house was just perfect for our annual family holiday to Cornwall.

It is tastefully decorated throughout and the kitchen is very well equipped. The whole family - 8 adults 2 children one of 3 yrs and a baby of 4 months and 2 dogs had plenty of room to relax and enjoy the beautiful surroundings.

It was a great base to come back too after visiting the surrounding areas of Tintagel, Boscastle, Port Issac, Padstow and a few lovely coves along the way.

The communication from the owners - from my first booking enquiry to receiving the direction and key code instructions was fantastic and the added bonus of a welcome hamper was nice touch.

This is the fourth time we have rented accommodation for our family holidays and it is by far the best one so far - I will definately be recommending Cobbetts to family and friends.

Thank you Anthony & Marjorie for a lovely holiday and well done for providing such a gorgeous home to stay in.

A fantastic holiday had by all the family

  • 5 of 5

Cobbetts was a fantastic house to stay in and we will be booking again. Everything was as described and every pot, pan and utensil catered for. The beds and linen were extremely comfortable and the views from the bedrooms superb. The house is well maintained and clean and the master bathroom is beautifully relaxing. The welcome hamper was a great touch and much appreciated after a 5 hour drive. I would highly recommend Cobbetts. We spent some time in Padstow and found it to be a beautiful place and the local fish and chip shop 'Peckish' is an absolute must.

Wow, wow, wow!! What a fantastic find Cobbetts was. You cannot fault this place at all. The furnishings are of the highest standard. Comfortable yet stylish, luxurious but homely. Anthony Richards was in constant communication with us and responds immediately to any queries. We loved the the email updates on what was on in the area during our stay. I would totally recommend this property to anyone I know. Superb.
