  • "We had a lovely stay at Sorrel cottage."

    It was very comfortable and welcoming. Everything was very clean and worked efficiently. I would say that it would benefit from more, different glasses ie champagne flutes and smaller spirit glasses. We would love to return and enjoy the outdoor facilities when the weather has improved.

    Very clean and well equipped. Homely and a peaceful location. Lots of places to visit nearby.

  • "A very well appointed cottage in a nice quiet area with only a 20 minute walk into Padstow harbour area."

    The cottage was clean and comfortable with enclosed gardens for the dog. The location made it very accessible to many lovely beaches and coastal walks. A perfect base for exploring this beautiful area of Cornwall.

  • "Overall the cottage was very good."

    However I had thought the property was at Padstow but it was about half a mile outside Padstow along a very dark country late with no lighting. This was a real issue for me as I had 2 friends staying 2 nights, but after that I was alone at the cottage and had to walk back from Padstow in the dark. As a result I had to change my plans considerably. In addition, the main bedroom en suite shower did not seem to have hot water so I had to use the other shower as well as my 2 friends staying.

    Apologies that the location of our cottage did not suit your needs, and i am sorry that the shower in the main bedroom failed during your visit, we had not been made aware previously, but the showervalve has been replaced this week. Property Owner

  • "A lovely place overall we had a lovely time."

    It is quiet and well equipped, the showers were great and we loved the garden areas as dis the dog. We appreciated the games, books etc and the wi fi was great. However aspects of the property are very dated and falling apart like the blinds, window locks and door locks, some of the bathroom taps were loose, the toilet flush in the main bedroom doesn't always work. The sofa and chair were quite shabby and the dining chairs very creaky. The oven smelled every time we tried to use it so we gave up, and the hob made odd loud clicking noises all day so might need looking at? We thought that the property was further from the town and a much harder walk than had been advertised, especially as much of it has no path so you have to walk in the road which we felt could/should have been mentioned. But again, we did enjoy our stay and the added touches such as prosecco and biscuits were very lovely. Thank you!

    I am sorry that the location of our cottage was not to your liking, and that you had a few issues during your stay at Sorrel Cottage. We try to keep on top of all maintenance, and when we stay there carry out any repairs that are needed, and if there is anything major required outside of our visits we contract the relevant trade to put this correct. Our cleaners made us aware of the loose tap, and this has now been corrected by a plumber, also the cistern in the main bedroom has been attended to. The blind which we were not aware of has been repaired, and will be replaced in future. Property Owner

    I had the impression it was in the village itself. It might be a short walk for younger people but not so for older people. However the property was very well equipped and very comfortable and we would recommend it on those criteria.

  • "We found Sorrel Cottage to be tastefully decorated, comfortably furnished and well equipped."

    Allocated parking spaces, enclosed areas front and back and the open plan downstairs layout was perfect for us as a couple with a small dog. Lots of lovely walks and dog friendly beaches within a short drive. The out of town location suited us perfectly and would definitely recommend for those looking for a base for exploring the area. We would happily book again. The walk into town includes a no-pavement section of the busy A389 (unless we missed the ‘rural country road’ referred to in the listing), so it’s worth taking a look at google street view to assess the suitability of the route if you anticipate doing that during your stay.

    Only slight downside was that when the wind was blowing, (well it is February), it seems to blow straight through the front door. Very enjoyable in every way though. Beautifully furnished, the leather suite was super comfortable. The bottle of Prosecco and Cornish biscuits was a lovely touch. We will definitely return.

  • "We stayed at Sorrel Cottage over Christmas and had a great stay, the cottage was well equipped and the biscuits and prosecco on arrival was a lovely thought, being Christmas we had a lot of groceries so had to juggle with space for storage but i don't think this would be a problem at any other time of the year."

    the secure gardens back and front were a god send for the dogs, nothing to do with the cottage but the walk into Padstow was a little far for my elderly mother. if we had one niggle is that the heating seemed a little out of synch on the timer, but small issue as the cottage stayed warm once the heating was on. The owners were in touch before and after our stay which was nice. Overall i would highly recommend, my comments are for info only.

    While we there we had 2 bad storms and we noticed that there was a leak through the bottom of the front door and could benefit from some draft excluder. This was no ones fault as the storm was pretty excessive. The storage bin on the patio had lost its lid so the items in there were blowing around, hopefully nothing got lost. It didn’t stop our enjoyment of the cottage though it was lovely. Thank you

  • "Comfortably the very worst place that I have ever been in."

    There are no cupboards available. All full. Everything must be stored on kitchen side or on floor. There are no surfaces available for Computer. There is no way to dry towels . I hang them over door. The house is for four people how they dry towels within 24 hours is beyond me. My cereals have to sit on the side. The bath with shower over has nowhere for shower gel and shampoo. I use shower in 2nd. Small soap dish for gel. Nowhere for shampoo. Nowhere for towel so hang it over sink. I can just reach from within shower. I am intending to leave on Wednesday 4th ten days before end of rental. I cannot wait to leave and be back to usual place on 2nd Jan for 11weeks. Wardrobe in 2nd bedroom does no shut. Fan in double bedroom is only working one. No others work. I suggest you drop it like a poisiness snake or proverbial hot cakes! Hideous or halve rent!

    We have worked very hard and spent a lot of time making the cottage a pleasant place for guests to stay and enjoy, and will continue to do so. We will take on board the comments regarding holders for shower gel etc. and towel rails, and look at adding these. Unfortunately as the property is designed as a holiday cottage, there is limited storage space in the kitchen. We visit the property regularly, and carryout any repairs required when there, or when reported to us and on our last visit in September, all of the extractors were in working order, but each are individually isolated as well as coming on from the light switch, so some of these may have been switched off by previous guests. Also the wardrobe door mentioned was opening and closing correctly in September, as this furniture was professionally re-painted in September and was fine when refitted. Property Owner
