About Sharon painter

Neil & Sharon Painter. We are lovers of North Cornwall and spend 3 or 4 weeks a year holidaying on the this beautiful coast with our children. We have family who are Cornish living here in Trewalder, we find this a quaint, unspoilt, undiscovered village. Set within beautiful Cornish countryside and a stones throw from some lovely local beaches. We both have experience in the hospitality industry and enjoy spending time here with our family and friends in our little bit of heaven.

From the start of booking our 3 day break to the end, everything was just wonderful. Directions were spot on. Everything in the cottage was immaculate, the kitchen had everything you could want and more. Bedrooms were lovely. Would definitely recommend this cottage for a country retreat especially anyone with dogs!

The cottage was beautiful, (the photos really do not do it justice)... despite immense character it still felt spacious for 2 adults, 3 children & a big dog! The garden was a definite bonus for our family. We've spent time in many cottages with very little outside space & this was great (especially for the dog & kids again).

Geographically it is easy to reach many favourite Cornish places and beaches, yet Trewalder itself is very tranquil and the ancient woodland leading to Delabole (with pigs!) was beautiful.

'Customer service' was brilliant from start to finish. Sharon's admin & record keeping was perfect and when we arrived there were fresh flowers, essentials in the cupboards/fridge, and a delicious homemade cake waiting!!!

We would definitely recommend the cottage and can't wait to visit again.

Many thanks from The Morgans!

Owner's Response: Thank you, I'm so pleased you enjoyed staying at the cottage. I do try hard with customer service as it's an important factor when booking a well earned holiday, I want guests to feel reassured that everything will be as expected (even better!) so that guests can get on with the important job of making memories and having a great time! I really do hope you will visit again soon. Sharon x

Wonderful cottage

  • 5 of 5

The cottage exceeded our expectations! It was as described but in had an extra really nice feel to it, which you can't get from photos and words. Customer service from Sharon was excellent and we'd definitely recommend it to family and friends and hope to come back ourselves. The location is great for north coast beaches and we did a lot of running and cycling around the local villages.

The outside table and chairs catch the sun to the end of the day and it was lovely for sitting out after a day on the beach with the glow of a bbq. Inside the kitchen and dining area is really practical and there's enough stone floor space to not need to be over-tidy when you come in from the beach! The weather was good but a couple of days were damp outside so it was great to be able to easily advance the heating and the house warmed wonderfully. Outside there was plenty of room for a couple of cars and we had four cycles too which were easily kept secure on the patio.

There was a nice supply of dishwasher tablets, loo roll etc which was a thoughtful bonus and we had everything we needed. There were fresh flowers and a terrific Victoria sponge when we arrived and that got things off to a great start!

Thoroughly enjoyed our time here - there were 5 of us, 2 parents and three lads, 16, 18 and 21 - all active and all very keen to enjoy this homely property again!

Delightful cottage, great location and the perfect home from home....

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed a superbly relaxing week at this lovely cottage which has heaps of charm and lots of stylish and homely touches ( including flowers and cake and a friendly welcome from Sharon and Neil on arrival). Extremely well equipped property with everything you could need and a spacious, enclosed and well maintained garden which was great for our dog (although there is a steep flight of steps to the lawn area which may prove tricky for some and watch out for the step up from the patio). Rather unusual to have a shower and sink as part of the main bedroom rather than a separate en suite, but a good shower and also a decent sized bathroom and downstairs toilet to cater for all. Excellent food and very dog-friendly at 'The Bettle and Chisel' in Delabole and well supplied local supermarket. Really could not fault this delightful cottage. A great location from which to explore Port Isaac, Padstow and The Eden Project and the perfect home from home to return to at the end of a busy day.
