Very comfy and cosy

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Stone Acre for 2 weeks, Owner Siobhan was ever quick to reply to my interrogations as I am French and booking a rental in the UK could prove difficult. Not at all, bed linen and towels were provided as indicated so this came in very handy especially when you're a family of 4 including 2 young children. Loo roll, soap for the washing up, bags for the refuse await your arrival =) Sorry if i'm a bit graphic but from a practical point of view i hope this will help future guests.

Beds are comfy and clean. You have blu rays and dvds if ever you feel like staying in the cottage. A log burner if you happen to go when it's winter or late Autumn and logs also. For food shopping, there's a small shop that can help should you feel lazy and don't want to go to Launceston where there's a Tesco (Cheapest place to buy petrol in the area) There's also an ASDA in Bodmin (Petrol is roughly the same as in Tesco).

The cottage is clean and well-maintained and I would definitely recommend this property to my friends and relatives.

Oh yes, you want to watch out for the little wooden unit on the right side of the sink ;)

Lovely little cottage. Very comfortable and perfect for a short break. The village is really pretty and was awash with wild flowers. The owners were really helpful. very happy to recommend.

A little tranquil gem

  • 5 of 5

From enquiry to stay the owners communication was fantastic, entry to the property was easy and there was a comprehensive list of directions and instructions to make everything easier. The property itself was just as in photos. if not nicer! The property was clean and welcoming and we didn't need to light the beautiful wood burner as it really is a cosy little property, warm and welcoming. Unfortunately the weather was stormy and apart from a trip to Launceston we didn't get to explore surrounding areas as much as we had hoped, the cottage was the perfect place to hole ourselves up for a few days peace and quiet. The village itself was welcoming and the locals were very friendly and there is a lovely little village shop on the green. Would thoroughly recommend this little gem for anyone wishing to escape from it all, although area seems to be fairly well connected to all parts of Cornwall and according to the maps everything appeared to be within easy reach (according to satnav, dog friendly beach was on 20 minutes away). Would definitely visit again, thank you for letting us borrow your lovely home.

Amazing Cornish retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our family have just returned from a fantastic weeks holiday in this cottage.

It is beautifully secluded and quiet, with its own private patio garden, only a 2 minute walk from the local shop which catered for all of our everyday needs.

It has a fully equipped kitchen, a TV, a selection of DVD's, guidebooks, and hugely comfortable beds. However, the best feature is the log burner in the cosy lounge, which is perfect at the end of a busy days sight seeing.

I would completely recommend this cottage to anybody looking for a fantastic break in the Cornish countryside.
