  • "Absolutely beautiful place, and location, we explored the whole of Cornwall from this location."

    Would recommend to anyone.

  • "We had an amazing time at Primrose."

    Kate was so helpful and her communication from booking was excellent. The house itself is spotless, it probably one of the best properties we have stayed in. Kate has thought of everything, the house is very well equipped with everything you need and all of the highest quality. The location of Primrose is perfect for exploring both sides of the Cornish coast and the meadow at the front of the property is lovely. We have moved on to another property for the second week of our Cornish stay and it is nowhere near as nice as Primrose. We regret not booking for 2 weeks. We would highly recommend this property to anyone and we hope to return one day. Sarah, Simon and Chester the dog

    Thanks so much for the amazing feedback Sarah, I’m so pleased you all enjoyed your time there and hope you have a lovely second week. You’d be most welcome back anytime as you left the place spotless- thank you. Property Owner

    This was so noticeable throughout the property finishing and contact with the owner so caring. Wanted to keep this lovely place and perfect for our four legged friend but can’t speak highly enough. Would be back in a heart beat to this idyllic place and position. Thank you for ensuing our week was amazing

  • "I booked Primrose on Riverside for a family trip of 6 adults & 2 dogs for a one week stay."

    Subsequently with the help of the owner I secured a 2nd house on the development to extend the trip to 9 adults & 3 dogs. We had a great time. I think there are 7 houses on the Riverside development which is tucked away in a tiny hamlet with the river across the green & camel trail behind. It was really easy to find with the owners excellent directions & picture instructions. Some houses are lived in full time others holiday lets. Which in my opinion keeps the place not only looking nice but it’s also felt very safe. Primrose is finished to an extremely high standard with John Lewis & Joseph Joseph equipment. It feels very high end providing a lovely & unexpected feeling of luxury. Big comfy sofas & dining table & chairs as well as two breakfast stools up to the kitchen counter. There is also a log burner with wood provided. It had been 30 degrees when we arrived but by the end of the week evenings were down to 16! So we did enjoy a rather warm & cosy evening on our last night. My Son & his girlfriend stayed in the downstairs double room with our two dogs able to wonder from the living room. There is a stairgate to stop them from coming upstairs. My husband & I had the master suite which is huge with walk in wardrobe space. Our daughter was going to stay in the 2nd guest suite & would have been very comfortable but it remained unoccupied as she chose to stayed in the master suite of the other house. But Primrose is plenty big enough for 6 adults. Every room has a bathroom. It works extremely well. There are 5 or 6 large steps to the deck but an alternative route via a general slope to the ‘front door’ if like my Dad he found them a bit of a challenge after we wore him out. There is a car port & space for a second car at each house. There is plenty of space & all 9 of us gather here for supper a couple of times. The kitchen is big enough for more than one cook & it didn’t feel over crowded. The deck at Primrose is completely covered & bifold doors open up to extend the space as one. There is a long table & bench seats & with a chair at each end we were very comfortable. It was an added bonus we could all be in one house together relax & to share a meal. There are plenty of glasses crockery & cutlery. Not like some places that sleep 4 so provide 4 of everything! The fridge dishwasher & washing machine were all well used. Not so much the freezer but it’s there & nice to have ice. There are two other comfortable garden chairs & hanging egg chair on the deck & lots of space for our doggy stuff & shoes. The owner was delightful & available by text message when I had a silly question to ask & always responded quickly engaging in conversation not just a blunt response. I thoroughly recommend Primrose & have nothing negative to say about it.

    Wow Nikki, thanks for your amazing feedback. I’m really glad you all enjoyed quality time together, and Primrose offered everything you were looking for. You were a delight to host Property Owner

    The host was lovely from the moment we booked. Primrose itself is top notch and have everything you could want there. It’s quiet, comfortable and well looked after. We have very busy work lives which makes primrose perfect for us to chill and relax. Our kids loved playing in the meadow in front of the house and we got to relax in the porch watching them.

    Probably the best property we have stayed in. It was an exceptional house and immaculately presented in a delightfully quiet and peaceful location, ideally situated to explore Cornwall. Kate, the owner, was a great host and always responded quickly to any messages we sent. We would love to keep returning to Cornwall and will definitely check availability at Primrose before anywhere else. If we could have given higher scores we would have done. Primrose made our visit to a special part of the country extra special. Many thanks!

    The property was in a lovely location over looking the meadow, beautifully furnished, well equipped and spotlessly clean. Kate was extremely helpful and responded to any questions very quickly. We had some lovely trips to Padstow, Rock, Port Isaac, Fowey and Watergate bay which are all only a short drive away. We also enjoyed relaxing at the property with a glass of wine on the veranda! Access to the Camel Trail is a 2 minute walk away and perfect for exercising the dogs. We’d definitely love to return!

    The location is quiet and peaceful in a beautiful environment. Primrose would be our perfect property to live in because it is incredibly well designed, built and furnished and was ideal for an elderly relative too. The owner made contact with us shortly after we booked it and was very helpful throughout our stay. We found Primrose spotlessly clean and we were grateful for a generous welcome hamper. Primrose was the perfect warm comfortable place to return to after a day out and we would love to go back one day. Thank you so much !

    Only minor points as we stay in a lot of places like primrose Around by the bottom of lamp dead spiders and cobwebs Could do with some tea towels Apart from those minor things primrose was a lovely well kept place to stay

    Hi David So glad you enjoyed your stay, and thanks so muck for your feedback. I'm really disappointed that you found cobwebs, as my standards are really high - I will pass on to the housekeeper and make sure everything is double checked. You're absolutely right, there should be tea towels, we usually leave 3 - I presume this is an oversight and will also feed this back. Apologies for these small issues.

  • "Wow, what a fabulous holiday."

    Right from the time of booking the host was attentive and so helpful. Lots of information on finding property etc. Arriving at the property we were blown away, it is literally a home from home. Exceptionally clean and well equipped with super comfy beds. We found it a little warm for us and being techophobes couldn't figure out the heating. Our wonderful host called us and talked us through it and even asked her lovely neighbour to help (it was actually really easy) We had booked a dog friendly cottage before in Cornwall and ended up booking into a hotel as it was just so awful. This couldn't be more different. So clean and I love that dogs are not allowed on furniture etc, makes a much nicer stay for the humans

    Its lovely to read your fabulous review Marcella, and we are so glad that you've enjoyed your stay at Primrose, and felt very much at home. I will pass your review on to our housekeeper too, she doe a great job to ensure it's always pristine :) Thanks for choosing Primrose, and taking the time to review; you have been a pleasure to host.

  • "What a truly fantastic stay we had at Primrose !"

    Highly highly recommended. The property was absolutely spotless, fantastically equipped, spacious, well decorated and the outdoor area was a breath of fresh air. Literally and metaphorically ! The private, gated meadow that the property sits within is tranquil, picturesque and ideal for little ones | dogs to expend some energy. Location is well suited to be able to explore much of what Cornwall has to offer; within 1hr of St Ives, Padstow, St Agnes, Watergate Bay, Rock beach… the list is endless. The host, Kate, was so friendly, thoughtful and clearly cared about the enjoyment of our holiday. We couldn’t have asked for more ! Can’t wait to return, we’ve already been recommending Primrose to friends who like to visit Cornwall ! This really has been one of our very best UK holidays ! :). Thank you so much !

    The property itself was fabulous the owner has everything inside perfect including fixtures and fittings, (my one small gripe would be the television channels, and understanding how the TV actually tuned in to other channels that were available). The owner was texting me upon arrival to make sure everything was in order and that we had arrived safely, a nice touch. We will definitely visit this property again if we visit Cornwall, although to be honest the drive is quite tiring from North Wales. Thank you Kate for letting us use your property for the week.

    It was our pleasure to welcome you Ronnie. And we’re very glad you all enjoyed your stay at Primrose, thank you so much for your lovely review. Thanks for the feedback on TV channels, I will update the welcome information to make it clearer. We hope to see you again! Kate Property Owner
