  • "My husband and I booked Willow over NewYear’s as we were visiting family nearby."

    The accommodation was perfect for our needs - we liked the views and the enclosed garden for our dog and easy access to the coastal footpath. It became apparent that the heating was not working which was somewhat alarming in light of the fact that it was New Year’s weekend and we had back to back storms. I rang the number in my email and was informed, unsurprisingly, that the office was closed but an emergency number was given. I rang and waited on hold for twenty minutes before giving up and went onto the website. It offered better options and I was able to WhatsApp our problem. Within the half hour, our problem had been referred to Scarlet of Cornish Cottages who called and put us in contact with the owner, Steve. Things moved very quickly and Steve came to the cottage and sorted out the glitch, much to our great relief. Our thanks to Scarlet and Steve for averting what could have been a cold and miserable stay and ensuring that we had a very enjoyable stay.

    Thank you for completing your feedback. We are delighted to hear you and your 4 legged furry friend enjoyed your visit to Willow. Following your contact regarding the heating issue, after investigation by the owner it transpired that all of the radiator thermostats had all been moved to zero. We are so pleased this was sorted quickly for you and you were able to enjoy your New Years stay. Property Owner

    Best location, comfort and value for money.

  • "We had a lovely time but I thought we could share some feedback."

    First, the gas knobs are not very safe. You can turn them on very easily by just wiping around them, which happened to us twice. We all ended up with a headache and had to leave the property for some time. I ended up putting a plastic container over them to ensure our safety. The top draw in the dishwasher should be fixed, it keeps dropping. The bed in the main bedroom is rather small so if you are tall, you may struggle to sleep. Apart from that, it’s a nice property, very quiet and relaxing. We loved drinking coffee in the morning while sitting on the decking area listening to birds singing.

  • "We found the property and it’s setting very good and dog friendly as stated in the details."

    Our key points on recommending this property are as follows Everything is on one level including access to the garden via a decking. Idea for two of our party with reduced mobility. The property is well furnished with everything you need for a great stay. Silence, it’s the first thing that you notice when you are sat on the decking, all you do hear is the odd distant shout of “four” as the golfers lose another ball. There is easy access to a good dog walk through a gate close to the property and if you are a walker there is access to the Coastal Path directly from the gate across the golf course. The golfers are very friendly and will direct you across the course to one of two directions of the Coastal path east or west.. Overall a great place to stay a we recommend it.

  • "We really enjoyed staying at Willow in June."

    The cottage is generally of a high standard and well-equipped throughout. The lounge was comfortable and the settee was better quality than it seemed on the pictures. The kitchen was small but did the job. The garden was great for us and the dogs, given the warm weather we had. The path up to the golf course / coastal path is helpful but it would be good to have some information included that helped with knowing where locally you could let dogs have a run off lead, safely. The only things that we would say need improving are the twin beds. The listing says to ask for it to be prepared as a zip-link double but we didn't see any way to do that and thought it would be ok - the right hand bed felt like you were sleeping on a slope towards the other bed. The other one at the window side was better, but they are pretty narrow for a adult to use - though I understand that the room itself is small too so it would be difficult to include bigger beds. This was not enough to put us off and would definitely recommend Willow as a place to stay with dogs.

    It was warm and cosy with a comfortable bath too (shower over) Great area to visit private access to costal path across nicely maintained attractive golf course with parking right by barn just perfect Trebah gardens had very good cafe / gift shop which you can access without paying entrance fee Excellent stay thank you Lindsay

  • "Within the general description, it would not harm to mention that the beach, less than 1 mile, is not accessible for people with walking difficulties."

    Although on first impression the property looked neat enough, there was an unpleasant smell upon entry. The location was lovely, with the view from the rear garden and it was very central for exploring the area. The Garden was well furnished, with a BBQ, rotary line and ample seating. It was also enclosed and overlooked the golf course. The inside, there were cobwebs in every room and it was evident that the furniture had not been pulled out and cleaned behind for sometime, which we did. The mastic around the bath had all peeled away and the walls all needed a coat of paint. There was a lack of the kitchen essentials i.e. kitchen roll, cling film or foil. We do appreciate that it was the end of season but these things made quite a negative impact on our stay.

  • "Property was superb!"

    Would definitely stay here again and will most likely do so if our daughter ends up going to Falmouth Uni which was one of the purposes of the trip. Property was in a super location, looking out onto fields and the back garden not overlooked by any other property. Very peaceful location. Able to park the car right outside, and the path way out of the location, across the golf course and to the coast line was an ideal situation for us being we had a dog with us - I covered some 49 miles of walking during our 7 day stay and most of it was along the coastline or on the beaches. The property itself was just right for the 3 'humans' staying. Two good bedrooms, one bathroom, one lounge area and a kitchen. None of the rooms are particularly spacious but they weren't too small either. The condition of the property was excellent, was a little nervous having our dog there as even though he is very well behaved, we were a little nervous of claws making marks but it seemed to be okay. Also the rear garden had a lovely condition lawn so we hoped the dog wee's wouldn't damage it. We did water where the dog went but in most cases, we took him out for walks. But the fact the property allows dogs means we wouldn't have been staying there otherwise. Kitchen was well stocked, only very minor niggle was that there were just 2 tall glasses which if there were 3 or 4 staying, there wasn't enough. All in all, a very enjoyable stay and we'd defintitely look to stay there again if back in Falmouth.

    It is spacious and very comfortable (especially the beds). It is very well equipped and was very clean and tidy. The garden is excellent for dogs, being completely enclosed and has lovely views across the golf course. Everyone around the location was very friendly and we felt very welcome. We will definitely come again but probably in late May/early June or September to ensure that the beaches are accessible all the time. Having said this we found everywhere was very dog friendly and fully understand the beach restrictions regarding dogs in the height of the summer season.

    Been near to other holiday barns also made it seem friendly and safe. Furnishings were modern and in good order and the whole cottage well maintained and spotlessly clean. It was easy to find and ideally situated near Swanpool Beach and Falmouth. We enjoyed a drive along the beautiful Helford River, exploring its delightful little coves and creeks. Another day was spent exploring Kynance Cove and The Lizard. Even one wet and windy day we found we could happily hang out in the cottage, reading or watching television, as it was so cosy and relaxing there.

    However with Willow the kitchen was a NIGHTMARE... so very small and totally unmanageable. If you turned around you bumped into one side. If you made a mistake of having a door open you suffered for it. Also if both of us tried to do something we’ll forget it completely. I know a lot of people always eat out but we like to do a little of both and certainly for a couple of days stay in and rest ... well this just didn’t happen .. so sadly NO we would not go back again. Also I do ring up during my holiday there to Sykes and got no response from the young lady dealing with me most upset as Sykes are always usually so goood and helpful... sorry that this is a saga but you have asked for feedback a couple of times ...
