About the Owner

I live in Cornwall with my wife and 2 children. We recently bought North Mine Cottage due to its proximity to our house. We love the village of Herodsfoot and hope that you will too if you choose to book.

Nombreux dysfonctionnements

  • 2 of 5

Nous avons déjà listé les problèmes par mail aux propriétaires. Nous aurions préféré leur en parler directement mais ils ne sont jamais venus nous voir à leur retour de congés, ni au moment du départ.

Les principaux problèmes rencontrés, at the arrival : In the kitchen, some cupboards smell very bad. Frying pans are for us totally unusable. Twin room : we feel all the springs of mattresses, we have the impression to sleep directly on springs. One of the mattresses has no protection. Numerous spiders in bedrooms and in bathroom (at the arrival, 9 spiders in the small bathroom). Towels smell bad. Beer cap found in the sofa. Pillows have no protection. First day : I am the first to take a shower. I discover that the water doesn't flow .The bathtub is filled(blocked). We try to clean the evacuation. For several years, we spend holidays in old cottages in Ireland, in UK... The problems for us are not because it's a old cottage. The problems are due to a serious lack of maintenance and poor quality equipment. Dommage, le cottage a pourtant du potentiel... Suite à l'envoi du listing des problèmes par mail, les propriétaires n'ont émis aucun regrets ni excuses.

Owner's Response: We were very sorry to have heard about the perceived problems that this guest found. Unfortunately Vicki and I were on our own holidays when this change over took place and had to employ a third party to clean and prepare the cottage. Yes, the cottage is old and does have a few spiders, but all the contents are less than 18 months old, regularly maintained and changed as required. I am usually on hand to address any problems because the cottage is at the end of our driveway, which has obviously helped us keep all our other guests happy or so the reviews would suggest.

What a superb find!

  • 5 of 5

This is what Cornwall is all about, a lovely, well equipped cottage in a friendly small village tucked away from the hustle and bustle. A perfect stay with our 9 month old sprocker spaniel with lots of off-lead walking from the cottage door. Ideally placed for visiting many Cornish attractions and, of course, the beaches! Looking forward to a return visit later in the year. Thanks to Ian & Vicki for making it the most pleasant stay!

Quiet little cottage in hamlet within walking distance of Deer Park! Ideal location and tastefully decorated- this beautiful cottage was a gem! Had fabulous mini break - used Aga for first time and the log burner! Finished off with BBQ in secluded sheltered garden!

A lovely combination of charm and modern

  • 5 of 5

The cottage offers plenty of space for a family of 5 in a clean and fresh environment. There are thoughtful touches everywhere to make it a home from home (including practical soaps to dvds and a few games). The location is beautiful as long as you don't mind quiet! It was stress free even with three toddlers do we definitely plan to return. Thank you for all the communication before and during the holiday too, everything was simple to organise.

From the Owner

We recently bought the cottage due to the fact that its garden adjoins ours making it an ideal investment. Having lived in the village for many years, we love the local area and hope that you will visit Cornwall to enjoy all that it has to offer.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Bristol at 130 Miles Nearest Barpub : The Plough, Duloe at 1 Miles Nearest Ferry : Plymouth Ferry Port at 27 Miles Nearest Golf : Losthwithiel at 10 Miles Nearest Train : Liskeard at 4 Miles Nearest Motorway : A38 at 3 Miles Nearest Restaurant : The highwayman, Dobwalls at 3 Miles Nearest Beach : Talland Bay at 8 Miles Car: necessary


The nearby coastal town of Looe is situated 13 miles from the village. The historic twin towns of East and West Looe provide all you could ask of a holiday in Cornwall. Safe beaches, a wide choice of restaurants, excellent walking routes, fishing trips, diving, etc.

Nearby beaches include Talland Bay (9 miles by car) and dog friendly Lantic Bay (10 miles by car).

Newquay, Padstow and the Port Isaac (made famous by Doc Martin) are on the North Cornwall coast yet are only 40-45 minutes drive.


Use of a car is essential.

Herodsfoot is situated just over 4 miles from Liskeard Railway Station (with direct rail links to London, Birmingham and the North); 30 miles from Newquay Cornwall International Airport; and 67 miles from Exeter International Airport.


The nearest town is Liskeard which is a few minutes drive where an array of shops, banks and supermarkets are available. Plymouth is a 25 minute drive and can also be reached by train from the local station. There are many National Trust properties and historic places to visit in the local area including Lanhydrock House at nearby Bodmin (10 miles).

The Deerpark Forest is within walking distance of the cottage with its forest trails and on site café.

Further Details:

There are a range of restaurants within easy reach of the cottage. Lunch or dinner at the Plough Inn at Duloe will be one of the highlights of your holiday. This is a traditional Cornish pub that just happens to have an award-winning chef overseeing a delicious menu that will get your taste buds tingling. We recommend fish night on Thursdays with fresh catches of the day from Looe on the menu. Just a ten minutes drive through the lanes from the cottage. Also close by are the pubs and restaurants of Looe, The Jubilee Inn for Sunday lunch at Pelynt (6 miles) and Trewithen restaurant in Lostwithiel (10 miles).

The world famous Eden project, home to over 2 million plants, is just 18 miles away in St Austell.

For the more active, Adrenalin Quarry and Kart World are just 7 miles away at Menheniot. Adrenalin Quarry offers the opportunity to try coasteering, flying down the UK's wildest zip wire or swinging off a cliff on a giant swing.
