This cottage was gorgeous. Tucked away but within easy reach of lots of wonderful places. Comfy beds, well equipped kitchen and lovely big garden. A good size for family of five, we had a wonderful week.

Lovely cottage to come home to after exploring!

  • 5 of 5

A gorgeous cottage with really good sized bedrooms. My kids loved being there from the moment they woke up to when they went to sleep. The beds are super comfy!!

Really felt like a home from home. Didn't need anything else.

So thoughtful of Sharon to provide milk, tea, coffee, and best of all, cake!! Just what we needed after a long drive!

Loved our stay in Welch's Cottage

  • 4 of 5

This is a lovely cottage, with original parts and a new extension giving the best of both worlds. It is well equipped and has everything you might need for a holiday.

Do visit Polzeath if you can, it is beautiful and we were lucky enough to have a sunny October day watching the surfers enjoy the waves.

Port Isaac is beautiful but try to avoid it during the day time! It is so busy.

Lovely traditional Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Loved everything about this cottage. Lots of room and spotlessly clean. It is in a perfect location to explore the stunning north coast of Cornwall. The owner has thought of everything and we were welcomed with milk and biscuits. Ideal for the dogs in a beautiful secure garden. I would highly recommend this cottage and hope to return some day.

A quaint and comfortable property in a good location for exploring the coast.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Welch's Cottage. It was well equipped and provided a good base for exploring the north Cornish coast. The furnishings were in areas a little dated but the garden and bright kitchen were highlights.
