Picturesque Cottage

  • 4 of 5

A very comfortable, beautiful cottage, shabby chic which is as expected although the bathroom decor (not the fittings) need some attention. The approach to the cottage isn't great but we were forewarned so not a shock and certainly didn't affect the stay, it was very peaceful. A minor detail but would flow better when using the kitchen, I'd move the kettle to the cooker side so you have the cups, cutlery & milk all in one place but that's just a personal view & whoevers staying there can move it. The kitchen had everything we needed my cafetière was left redundant in my car boot! I found the hairdryer but a nod in the right direction might be useful in the cottage instructions, I would also expect pillow and mattress protectors. Well, it goes without saying all you need to bring are your clothes, this was a beautiful place to stay.

Lovely cottage and spotlessly clean

  • 5 of 5

Don't be put off by the access to the cottage. This is a lovely place to base yourself to visit Cornwall/Devon. Everything is spotlessly clean and the cottage has a homely feel. The grandchildren loved the Easter egg hunt around the garden. Jason welcomed us with a bottle of wine and we enjoyed this around the wood burning open fire. We would definitely love to go back

Owner's Response: Our cleaning team is amazing and our beds are very comfortable as is the pressurised hot water system. If we are around we will welcome you and can by agreement even get the fire on in winter. The gardens and rural views and walks on the doorstep into wild and hidden Cornwall are part of the treasure of this area.

Tidy, well stocked, comfortable, peaceful setting, well established garden

  • 4 of 5

Nice place to spend a couple of day's, plenty of room for 6 people, beds are comfortable (A little on the soft side) I would say take your own towels as we found we didn't quite have enough but that's just personal choice. Would love to see the garden in full bloom :) beautiful array of flowers :) lovely holiday house

Cornish Cottage, Doublebois

  • 5 of 5

Cosy, comfortable and clean cottage in lovely, secluded location within easy reach of A38. Ideal for a family break. Well equipped. Very comfortable and good sized bedrooms. Access to main bathroom via bedroom not ideal and hallway very small but didn't cause us problems. Met owner on arrival.......very friendly and helpful. Secure garden good for dog. Convenient for both North and South Cornish coast and Bodmin Moor. Reasonably priced. Would recommend.
