  • "Lovely well situated property with lots of space."

    Very comfortable and well equipped. Only downside was the parking and only having one bathroom/toilet making it difficult with large family

    A great base to go and explore Cornwall.

  • "Emma Place is a delightful cottage."

    It’s hidden away in the centre of Bodmin giving the impression of being somewhere remote & peaceful whilst still being close to civilisation. The cottage itself is spacious, clean and well furnished. It was a lovely base for our holiday & when the rain proved too much for trips out it was a great place to spend time relaxing & chilling out.

  • "A lovely property in an excellent location for exploring Cornwall."

    Very dog friendly and comfortable. The property is very well equipped and beautifully furnished. The individualized welcome goodies were very much appreciated after a long drive and the provision of dog beds was another bonus for us. We have so much more to see we want to return next year!

  • "It would be useful if there was a letter box outside the garden area as on 2 occasions the postman came into the fenced garden area, which is annoying as we had a dog with us."

    The sofa in the lounge was uncomfortable and some of the carpets are fraying. The bed linen is looking worn & the toilet roll holder is rusty. Considering the rating for the property I would consider the aforementioned items should be addressed. Overall it’s a nice property and well decorated.

  • "We had a lovely relaxing week at Emma Place."

    The cottage is well equipped and very comfy. We loved sitting in the sunny pretty garden. Touches like a cream tea on arrival and a dog bed provided were really appreciated. Our children loved the great selection of board games. We found plenty to do and loved Crantock Beach and the Camel Trail.

  • "Even before we arrived at Emma's Place we had a great feeling with the information we were given and checking whether we wanted the normal cream tea on arrival or mince pies."

    When we arrived we were not disappointed. The cottage was lovely and felt very warm and cosy, it is fair to say we felt at home straight away. The kids couldn't wait to check out their rooms and were unpacked within minutes. The lists we were given in advance enabled us to sort where we were able to get some supplies and then settle in for the evening. Samantha emailed and texted us on arrival to make sure everything was okay and check if we needed anything. We have been lucky enough to stay in a number of different cottages in the past and Emma's Place is certainly one of the best and most homely. We would certainly consider returning in the future.

  • "The cottage is an absolute gem!"

    It's amazingly quiet and yet moments walk from the middle of Bodmin and a CAMRA pub of the year. The kitchen is kitted out like your home (only possibly better!) - there's everything you could need and an brilliant triple oven! The ambiance is delightful and the cottage is beautifully decorated. The fire can be made to roar in the sitting room. The communications with the owner were incredibly smooth and good. We arrived to mince pies, a bottle of wine, a basket full of logs and warmth. It's just a wonderful place and I'm sure we'll visit again!

  • "Emma Place is a wonderfully cosy, well equipped home from home, with unexpected little additions like board games which the children loved."

    Beds were cosy and the garden was well secured for our dog too! Location wise, it is close to local shops and most beaches are within a twenty to thirty minute drive which was lovely!

  • "This holiday home is really something very special."

    The house and garden are beautiful and the history of this home makes you feel privileged to stay there. It is the best equipped holiday home we have ever stayed in and the owners have gone to great effort to make their guests feel looked after . A Cornish tea on arrival was very welcome after a long drive. They really have thought of everything. The Location is good, the town is 2 minutes walk away and has everything you need, with some great places to visit within short drives. We loved it and will definitely go back . Recommend this home highly

  • "This accommodation was totally beautiful, spotlessly clean, comfortable, tastefully decorated, well maintained garden that made us want to sit outside and enjoy it."

    In addition the history of the house and a leaflet advising of the location of shops and the best places to eat and visit. All in all faultless and a magical holiday experience where we made memories to cherish. Not forgetting the kindling and logs for us to make a fire, which we did on our one wet and chilly evening.

  • "Thoroughly recommend Emma Place."

    Well situated in quiet location. Excellent contact with the owners both before and during our stay. House quirky, very comfortable and a real home from home in its furnishings and equipment. Exceeded our expectations in all respects. The only drawback, and I’m sure it’s been mentioned before is that there is only one bathroom with toilet which might give rise to problems when there is maximum occupancy. We were only two, so we were fine. If in future funds permit there is easily space in the main bedroom to create an en-suite.

The property

2 Emma Place is an almost secret retreat, nuzzled tranquilly in the heart of the conservation area in Bodmin town.

Beautifully styled and presented, with original period features combining charisma and all the home comforts, this semi-detached villa-vibe house is a real gem.

Spacious accommodation greets you, with a separate sitting room boasting an open fire, ideal for those snuggle-in evenings during the cooler months, plus the attractive dining room creates social spaces for relaxation and food gatherings.

The kitchen is smart for creative cookery.

On the first floor, three bedrooms are sleep-inducing with good-looking decor and pretty, rural views over the town from the front bedrooms.

Shower or bathe in the family bathroom after a ramble or beach escapade.

Period slate flagstone floors, original tiled fireplaces and generous windows (the church bells sound amazing) add to the happy ambiance and let in a bounty of light throughout.

The fully enclosed sun-spot front garden has pathways and lawns for children and dogs to play safely, with garden table and chairs for dining and barbecues under blue skies.

There is a little courtyard with storage for cycles and surf gear.

Shops, good restaurants and food inns are all reached within paces, with several supermarkets a few minutes’ drive away.

Bodmin makes the perfect base for exploring Cornwall’s favourite destinations.

Visit historic Bodmin Jail, the Steam Railway, or explore The Camel Trail on hired cycles.

Llanhydrock House with majestic gardens is just two miles away.

Beautiful beaches, country cafes, coastpath walks and the striking landscape of Bodmin Moor is within easy reach.

Both north and south coasts beckon with hot-spot resorts of Padstow, Port Issac and Newquay, Fowey, Mevagissey and Charlestown.

With so much choice, 2 Emma Place makes an appealing home stay for family, friends and couples seeking relaxation and recreation for coastal and country adventures.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.

Bodmin, the one-time County Town of Cornwall with its narrow streets, shops and pubs, is perfectly placed for exploring all that this fabulous holiday area has to offer. The outstanding surf, rugged cliffs and hidden coves of the north coast beaches and the quieter sands and river estuaries of the south coast are both 15 miles away while on the edge of town is the fascinating museum and haunting presence of the old Bodmin Jail. The popular Camel Trail for cyclists and walkers also winds its way through the town on its journey to the sea at Padstow. Close by are the open spaces and wind swept grandeur of Bodmin Moor while the incomparable Eden Project (11 miles), Falmouth’s National Maritime Museum (30 miles) and the beautiful harbour town of Padstow with its famous pubs and restaurants (16 miles) make for great days out. Also within easy reach and ideal for a fun-filled day out, guests can visit Lanhydrock House, the small town of Fowey and Charlestown with its Tall Ships, The Eden Project and Lostwithiel. There is a good choice of country pubs and restaurants in the surrounding area.
