  • "We ended up being 3 ladies instead of 4, as I came down with CV last minute."

    I was very disappointed to miss seeing my lady friends. I have just checked with the 3 ladies that went, and they LOVED it. They have said they could not fault anything. They said I must give the highest rating I can, and it would still not be enough. Thank you so much for making their stay so special. We had missed seeing each other for a long time, and now we are planning a new trip, so that I can see the girls. Thank you so very much.

    The cottage has been completed to a very high standard and was very clean, every morning Andy would come round to check on the hot tub to ensure everything was safe to use.

  • "The cottage perfectly suited our family of myself, my daughter, son-in-law and 2 grandchildren."

    The children loved the big garden with swings and trampoline which the owner generously shared with us, and especially the hot tub which they used every day and often twice a day! The cottage is newly renovated and beautifully furnished, nothing missing for our convenience and comfort, (except a dryer, and when we mentioned it, the owners produced a drying rack within hours and an actual dryer in a building close by) Wonderful, helpful, friendly hosts! Also close to Port Isaac, scene of the TV show Doc Martin, the Eden Project (40 minutes) and many beautiful walks.

  • "We enjoyed the perfect family holiday staying at Foxglove Cottage."

    The accommodation is an immaculate renovation, set in beautiful gardens with the space for our four boys to run, play and explore. It's an idyllic spot, surrounded by woodland and a shallow river running along the back of the property perfect for paddling. It's also a great location from which to explore the rest of Cornwall. Equidistant from both the northern and southern Cornish coastlines, we made very easy day trips to Padstow, Polzeath and Tintagel in the north and Porthleven in the south. Andy and Julie were perfect hosts, hugely welcoming, we were made to feel at home from the moment we arrived and they were on hand for anything we needed. Their hospitality was a big part of making our whole trip such a great experience. We could not recommend this holiday more highly, we had a wonderful two weeks and our only regret was that we couldn't stay longer!

  • "We returned from foxglove cottage yesterday and we had a lovely week staying here."

    The cottage is fabulous and has everything you need and more to have a relaxing and peaceful holiday. The cottage is in a beautiful spot and is surrounded by large gardens where we enjoyed the sun and the kids played games. The outside furniture is in a perfect spot to catch the evening sun. The cottage itself is perfect. Newly decorated and the photos on the site do not do it justice and we were amazed when we arrived to see how beautiful it actually is. I would definitely recommend staying here. The cottage is situated in a great location and has supermarkets nearby and not far from many places to visit. The owners are on hand if you need them too and were really welcoming. We did not need anything when we were there but I know they would have been happy to help if we had needed them. Thank you for a wonderful week. We would love to go back !!!

  • "We all really enjoyed our stay at Foxglove Cottage."

    It is located in a beautiful setting, surrounded by trees, rabbits, birds and cows! There is also a stream at the back of the property that you can access easily - our kids loved paddling there almost as much as playing with the trampoline, swings, and Max the cat! The owners were brilliant, hugely welcoming and cottage exceeded expectations (the pictures online don’t do it justice!). It has been recently renovated - it was spotless and very comfortable. It had everything we needed for our stay and all the fittings and furnishings were new and clean. The addition of stair gates and plastic crockery for the young guests was such a helpful detail. We will definitely be back!
