    It's very well situated for easy access to St Teath and nearby attractions and facilities. Vanessa, the owner was so welcoming and helpful.

  • "From start to finish, I thoroughly enjoyed my week in the Lamb Shack."

    It provided all I needed for an enjoyable stay. The only negative I can think of is, there is no wardrobe space. Venessa, my host was amazing. Nothing was too much trouble. Very helpful and a really nice person. She even brought flowers to welcome my partner, who joined me midway through my stay. Top Lady. Would recommend this property if you want a peaceful break away. It’s a one-off property located next to grazing land complete with horses, goats and would you believe, Llamas

  • "We stayed at the Lamb Shack in September, and really enjoyed our stay."

    Vanessa was a great host, and went out of her way to make sure everything was ok, even providing some home grown tomatoes. If you like animals you will enjoy waking up each morning to see horses, goats and llamas grazing the fields next to you. This is an ideal location for exploring this part of Cornwall. The village of St Teath is just a short walk away and the coast just a short drive. We can’t recommend the Lamb Shack too highly.

  • "We were greeted by Vanessa as we arrived and I'm glad we were as I hadnt seen the property sign as we got there."

    Maybe another sign on the opposite side of the drive would be helpful. She showed us to the Lamb Shack. It was just right for two. Cosy, comfortable and everything we needed. Storage for clothes is very tight so would recommend only taking what you need. The steps down to the car wouldnt suit anyone with mobility problems. It was a great base for our Cornish adventures. Vanessa was a great host who couldn't have been any more helpful.

  • "Fantastic week at the Lamb Shack."

    Vanessa was a welcoming and very friendly host and offered us local knowledge prior to and during our stay. The Property was better than expected and situated in a beautiful secluded spot on the owners farm, so peaceful and relaxing, just what we wanted. Location is perfect for exploring both coasts and many beautiful towns, easy access to main roads which is an advantage!. Wadebridge provided us with many supermarket options and there is a local shop in St Teath, of which was only open restricted hours due to the current COVID situation. The local pub, within 15 mins walk, is definitely worth a mention, welcoming and friendly, good beers available and a great little menu, good wholesome pub grub! We would 100% recommend the property to couples looking for something a bit different and quirky, who like exploring and a comfortable base to return to in the evenings. Thank you Vanessa, you have a lovely property.

    The Shack is a quirky place. It was warm, it was cozy. It suited us just fine. The village pub is extremely friendly. The food is good and sensibly priced and it's nice to have somewhere right on the doorstep. Could anything be improved? There were no wardrobes or drawers. These would have been handy but it was no more than a minor inconvenience. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

  • " · We loved the actual pod itself."

    It was a perfect hideaway for a couple and within travel distance of all famous Cornish landmarks. The pod had a very comfy bed, seating area, clean and ample shower room, little kitchenette, although it could have benefited from a hotplate to heat pans. All in all, it was brilliant. · We didn't like the incessant rain and sadly an overhanging tree created much bigger drops to fall on the pods roof, making sleep an elusive dream. Would suggest trimming branches or cutting tree. Obviously the weather is something one cannot account for in uk. A small wardrobe or somewhere to hang clothes would have been beneficial

  • "We had a great week in the Lamb Shack."

    This was the first time we had stayed in a pod and were a little apprehensive about only having such a small space to live in for the week. We were however very pleasantly surprised at just how spacious the shack was. I didn’t realise how fun it is to have to crawl up and down the bed to get into/out of it. It was well equipped with everyday essentials (plates, glasses etc). The use of a convection oven instead of just a microwave was also useful. The fridge could have done with having a small freezer compartment. The welcome pack was very gratefully received. The wifi was down for the week we were there, but Venessa (the owner) very kindly said that we could use her conservatory and access her wifi if needed. Actually she was very helpful and accommodating with any requests. The shack is situated at the rear of the owner’s property, behind the stables, so it is quite secluded. It’s next to the fields that have horses, sheep and alpaca’s in. Located ideally for exploring North Cornwall. Local pub (White Hart) very friendly and lovely food.
