What a find! Perfect 5⭐️️ accommodation

  • 5 of 5

This place is a must stay if you are planning a visit to North Cornwall. We've just come back from a short break at the Round House and it has everything you could wish for in a holiday home. Beautiful fireplace with log burner, full of character, well equipped kitchen, lovely quality bedding and towels - a real must see/stay. We would have no hesitation in staying here again and would definitely recommend it. Helen was very welcoming and extremely prompt on replying enabling a smooth booking process. Thank you for a lovely break.

Excellent accommodation within easy reach of various attractions

  • 5 of 5

We spent an enjoyable week in this comfortable, clean and unusual property. Helen the host was friendly. We had all that we wanted. We went for a number of walks on the coast, visited picturesque Port Isaac and Padstow. We visited in Winter. The dramatic skies and light compensated for the cold wind. The Eden project was impressive and fascinating.

This was our 2nd visit to the round house and I must say it still has the wow factor. Everything was perfect in the cottage, the well equipped kitchen the beautiful fire place comfortable beds and cosy quilts. A perfect quiet spot to get away from it all. Look forward to returning again.
