  • "The property and location was perfect for us."

    The milk, biscuits and availability of cleaning products was great. Sofas and beds very comfortable. Disappointed in back door closest to car parking space not opening so had to carry luggage around side of house. Also shower is weak. Know this is in part due to low pressure in village but holster was broken and shower head constantly dropped. Very minor issues in facilities but will return

  • "Having read a recent review on here (made after I had booked the cottage) my family and I were pleasantly surprised which is was why it exceeded expectations."

    The cottage was lovely - clean, tidy and well equipped. It wasn't perfect but nowhere is and if I wanted to I could find minor things to complain about but they'd be trivial. The welcome pack was lovely and welcome after a long drive, The cottage is situated at the heart of the lovely village of St Buryan which has a good shop, a lovely pub, an interesting church which is open to visitors and and an excellent farm shop which served a lovely cream tea. Mossley cottage made a great base to travel from all around the west of Cornwall.

  • "Unfortunately, this cottage promised more than it delivered."

    2 of our party ended up with bad backs from the beds and restless nights ensued. The cleanliness of the property let it down badly, lots of dust round cupboards and under beds, don't drop anything you might get a shock to the dirt. The state of the windows leaves alot to be desired, when you open the windows there is mould under the metal catchments as if no one has ever cleaned the windows in the open position. The varnish is all peeling off the window frames both inside and out and looks like they haven't been touched in years. When you use the washing machine it sounds like an aircraft is taking off inside the house, it just needs levelling off properly so it doesn't try to force its way through the kitchen. The conservatory is a major disappointment as it is rendered unusable unless it is dry. Whenever it rains it doesn't just leak, you end up with pools of water all over the floor, this has obviously ruined the laminate flooring and smells damp. The unfortunate thing with the state of the property is that most of these things have been brought to the attention of the owners before with maintenance logs and previous feedback. It could be so much better as the cottage is in a fantastic location.

  • "We really enjoyed our stay in Mossley Cottage."

    The kitchen was well equipped. The bedrooms were comfortable. The location is excellent. The only issues shower is difficult to control: either too hot or cold. But we would recommend this property as a base for discovering West Cornwall.

  • "I found the bed in the master bedroom to be very uncomfortable we were lucky there were only two of us so we were able to swap rooms we also found the living room furniture uncomfortable."

    The parking space was to small for Toyota Corona estate but there is on street parking.

  • "Lovely cottage."

    It was a shame there were no recycling facilities - it's 2021, and this really should be actioned (I saw previous guests had also mentioned in the visitors' book).

  • "Cottage was in the perfect location for exploring the different coves and beaches at the tip of Cornwall which is what we enjoy and the area we like to be in."

    This part of Cornwall remains unspoilt even with the extra influx of UK tourists this summer. The cottage is also well equipped for cooking and preparing meals. Tesco food delivery worked a treat and great fridge and freezer. Used conservatory a lot - just a slight issue with flies and spiders but that is probably normal. WiFi worked very well and cottage was very comfortable and clean. Shower was ok but we all missed our power shower! Would definitely stay again.
