Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a lovely fortnight, excellent location for visiting places on both coastlines, typical mixed weather but still some days to spend on the excellent beaches enjoying the surf.

This was a lovely cottage inside and had everything you need for a relaxing holiday.

A very pretty garden and surroundings, very peaceful. A good location to visit north & south Cornwall. The owners where very welcoming and helpful. We enjoyed our week here and will most definitely return.

Very cosy cottage with a lovely, large well maintained garden.

  • 5 of 5

Set off the main road down a gravel path in a central village ideally situated for touring all areas of Cornwall. The cottage is a attached to the main property. Extremely well stocked with a mixture of oldy worldly furniture but modern appliances in the kitchen and a modern shower/bathroom. Kitchen had every amenity you would hope for in a self catering holiday and more. Patio with table and chairs overlooking a large picturesque garden. Parking on the drive. Very welcoming owners who were extremely helpful without being intrusive.

Lovely cottage and beautiful gardens. The cottage is beautifully presented and well equipped. It is well situated for easy access to all points in Cornwall. Everything was done to make us welcome,including a lovely cream tea on arrival. A very enjoyable week.

The perfect home away from home

  • 5 of 5

First time travellers to Cornwall, we loved this peaceful location with all its home comforts and it was a joy to return here each day after our sightseeing. Sue was very welcoming and helpful with lots of local knowledge and we found the location very central for trips by car, in any direction. Loved the garden and the posy vases on the windowsill such a nice touch. Everything we needed and more after travelling for several weeks.

Everything you need

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a week at Sweet Pea where the facilities, and location were both very good. The cottage is well equipped ,clean and well maintained, even including a cool bag for picnics, and we enjoyed coming "home "after a day out because everything was there. Ample parking for our car, and so quiet at all times of the day .The garden was beautiful , I enjoyed pulling back the curtains first thing to see the rabbits on the lawn and the weather allowed us to have breakfast on the patio and wine on the garden benches in the evening .

The location allowed us to visit many places without having to drive miles, North and South coast within easy reach. We enjoyed walking the coastal path and also going to Truro .

The owner Susan was most helpful with anything from where to find good ice creams to using the Wi FI .

I certainly recommend Sweet pea to my friends , and we hope to return .
