    It is spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Located in a lovely village with easy access to various locations. We couldn't have wished for anything better. A most enjoyable stay.

    Easily found off the main road, but a really quiet location. There is a wonderful pub at the end of the road and lovely walks down to the quayside which are great for the dogs. So l would highly recommend this house; you can really see the owners have spent a lot of time renovating and looking after the house. Thank you so much Keith and Linda. We all loved staying here.

    Luckily the property offered some compensation for the inconvenience to allow us to book Armando. Keith and Linda were the perfect hosts providing a lovely clean home in a great location and provided lots of helpful information of where to go and what to see.

  • "We have just returned from a week's stay at Armando in Devoran."

    The cottage is very spacious and has everything you need for a relaxing break. On this occasion we had brought my mum along so she could visit a childhood friend who resides in Falmouth. She also has early onset Dementia and at first found the topsy-turvy layout a bit confusing but soon got used to it. The two of us loved sitting out on the terrace and listening to the birds. My mum commented on how quiet it was as there wasn't a lot of traffic noise. Our little dog Maisie especially enjoyed the trips to the creek which I have to say is such a beautiful place when the tide is in. Our son joined us for the last five days and he found getting around on public transport was easy with local buses and the train station not too far away. Overall, we all had a very enjoyable stay and would definitely like to return at some point again in the future. Many thanks Neil & Debbie Dawson

    The pictures do not do Armando justice at all it is truly amazing and we all loved it. The house was really clean when we arrived and Armando has everything you need. The upside down living is genius with the L shaped open plan kitchen dining area and sneaky views to the creak. The old Quay in pub is just a 2 minute walk away serving good pub food and good beer and cider. The Quay just down the road is beautiful, especially at high tide with all the birds. Thank you to Keith and Linda for letting us stay in this beautiful house and I think we have found a new favorite part of Cornwall.

  • "We had a fabulous 2 week stay at Armando in charming Devoran."

    The house is extremely comfortable, spotlessly clean and very well maintained. The owners (Keith and Linda ) have really thought about those special touches that make a good holiday into a great holiday and checking by email to make sure everything’s ok was a nice touch too. As for location, it’s a two minute stroll to the most magical stretch of water, great for paddle boarding and kayaking - you can store them in the garage so no need to deflate the board each time. In the evening you can watch the sun go down and hear the curlews calling … just wonderful! It never got too busy and we stayed in mid August and the weather was scorching! The local pub is a joy too, great food and friendly people. By car, Truro is just a few miles just up the road and Falmouth is just a few miles further in the opposite direction. Easy access to the great beaches, gardens and restaurants. Hope to return next year.

Maybe turn left short walk to the tranquil estuary around 3:00pm watch the tide come in, locals love chat, few are proper characters.

    Lacked for nothing. Keith and Linda were very attentive - thank you. The location is perfect for a relaxing holiday with flat walks along the waterfront or hillier ones inland if that’s more your thing. Local pub (1/4mile) serves great food and drink. No shops in Devoran itself but there is a Spar in Carnon Downs just over a mile away. <10mins drive to Truro and 20mins to Falmouth if you need more. Would we return to Armando? Definitely.

    Thank you so much - we really do try hard to make sure the cottage is presented well. We generally have self catering holidays ourselves and have often been appalled at the lack of cleanliness and quality of things like knives and utensils. We hope to see you again.
