A lovely place to stay

  • 5 of 5

The house is very well equipped, clean and also very comfortable. Everything was thought of.

The contact with the owners was very uncomplicated.

If we were to return to Cornwall, we would like to go back to the Melbourne Cottage.

Amazing - beautiful cottage

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is very homely and definitely has that cottage feel to it. The owners have thought of everything in terms of making your stay comfortable. There were fresh flowers, biscuits, tea, milk, soap, household products, etc left for us on arrival - very welcoming. The WiFi worked wonderfully (my 10 year old daughter was happy). The garden was great to sit out in plus barbecue. We would definitely go back - great location too.
