  • "Myself and my boys had a very relaxing stay at Wheal Honey even when the weather was awful all week."

    The views are lovely and it was very peaceful.

  • "Beautiful cottage in rural Cornwall with very nice views to the rear."

    Close to Newquay and many other coastal towns. Lovely and warm with just about everything provided, (not food of course). Howard, the owner was and is very helpful, even when the dishwasher broke, it was replaced in less than 24 hours with a brand new one. Would definitely recommend these cottages.

  • "We stayed for 7 nights."

    The cottage is spacious and had everything we needed. The location is great, our view was the farm animals, birds in a large shared garden. Our hosts were so friendly and accommodating. There is an Asda, Morrisons, Lidl's and McDonald's 10 minute drive. Fristal beach is 6 miles down the road. This is a fantastic family cottage stay.

    The owners had thought of every little detail that you could possibly think of needing and more for your stay. Look forward to staying here again in the future.

  • "Absolutely perfect."

    The property is superb. Exterior is a picture and the interior is a stunning conversion. A real credit to the owner who painstakingly converted an old barn to create this two level masterpiece. Fixtures and fittings are of top quality. We felt so comfortable in this beautiful holiday cottage. Great location and views. A most enjoyable stay.

  • "If you're looking for a peaceful, quiet and relaxing holiday with stunning views then this is for you."

    Upon arrival the property was clean and tidy, with tea, coffee and milk provided this was very much appreciated especially after along journey. The cottage is just like a home from home with a washer, dryer and dishwasher included. The property is just a short drive from Newquay. I really couldn't fault the property and will hopefully revisit in the future.

  • "Our second stay and just as delightful."

    Helpful owners (came to the rescue with a screwdriver for our own bbq). The reclining sofa is actually fantastic and comfortable and we bring a freestanding camping washing airer with us for the wetsuits (re:previous review). There is no price for the view out of the lounge and back bedroom window and we love the cottage so much we’ll be back. Great base for all parts of Cornwall.

    Thank you for your lovely comments Property Owner

  • "Home from a fantastic weeks stay at Wheal Honey."

    We picked this for its location and it didn’t disappoint. Nestled in the countryside with beautiful views, we found it the perfect base for all the attractions we visited in Cornwall. Everything you needed was included in the accommodation from fluffy towels to tea and coffee. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and would definitely recommend to others and will return here ourselves in the future.

  • "Lovely property, great rural location but perfect for exploring the area, no where was more than an hour away so that was great for us."

    Lovely size for a family and had everything you needed. Cottage was clean on the whole, I think it just needs a more thorough clean as a few areas such as the storage in the bathroom and under the beds were very dusty and a jug in the kitchen cupboard was dirty. Items such as pegs or a washing line outside and a basket to carry the washing would be beneficial. Furniture could possibly do with an update as the sofa wasn't overly comfortable. Milk was in the fridge for when we arrived, but a welcome hamper with essential items for breakfast would be lovely (even if at an extra charge). On the whole a lovely cottage, just a few small amendments to be made.

    Thank you for the feedback provided for Wheal Honey, we do pop all kitchen items in the dishwasher each week to ensure they are all clean, we apologise if we had missed anything. We have taken on comments on board for consideration, thank you for your kind comments regarding the house and we hope you had a great stay overall. Property Owner

  • "This is a great property has many good features and is cosy, clean and comfortable."

    A dishwasher, washing machine and dryer were all helpful additions and the underfloor heating a welcome treat! We gave it four stars for a few easily rectifyable issues. The dining table is too small for four adult sized people. Seating area is big enough and but the table is not, only just able to fit four placemats on it and no room for extra dishes. The property needs an outside light to help to find the door key hole and avoid slips and trips on the cobbles in the dark as the ground changes in levels. Other than these issues I would highly recommend this cottage and thank the owners for a lovely stay.

  • "We really enjoyed our stay - the property was as fab and the hosts were friendly without being overbearing."

    Property was clean (apart from the cobwebs!) and it was the perfect base for exploring Newquay. We wish we had booked for 2 weeks! We would definitely stay again and we were hoping to book again for next year but the prices have been increased by about 50% and it has completely priced us out the market. What a shame.

  • "We stayed here for a weekend while attending a family reunion."

    The warm, clean cottage was as fully equipped as any we have stayed in previously. There are superb views across the valley from the private patio which would make a lovely place for breakfast on a warmer/drier day (we had the 'pleasure' of sharing the weekend with storm Dennis). The friendly owners were helpful but unobtrusive. An ideal location for exploring this part of Cornwall or a quiet escape.

  • "We really enjoyed our stay in wheal honey cottage."

    The cottage just about had everything you could need. Perhaps, it could do with an outside area for cleaning wetsuits and some hooks to hang them, also missed a dustpan and brush and also couldn’t find a pizza cutter - these are just very tiny things as I couldn’t fault our stay. It’s very peaceful and the view in the garden is spectacular. Would love to come back!

    The kitchen was also well equipped although some more utensils and pots and pans would not go amiss. Nice welcome by owner, gave local information; there was a bottle of white wine and a pint of milk in the fridge.

The location of the cottage was great in quiet country side yet easy access to all of Cornwall, just off the A30. Overall good value for money.
