  • "The cottage was lovely, well equipped, in an idyllic setting, with friendly, accommodating owners, who were on hand when we needed them."

    The pool was well maintained, and the booking system the owners had put in place meant we felt safe using it during these challenging times. We had a wonderful holiday and would highly recommend the cottage for a family break.

  • "We stayed at Saffron Cottage as a family of 4 with 2 girls 5 and under."

    The cottage truly was a home away from home, and we couldn't have felt more comfortable. The site was beautiful, and the girls loved the open space, the pool and the playground. We would definitely recommend and would love to stay again at some point in the future.

  • "Saffron Cottage is a lovely place to stay."

    The cottage was very clean and had everything that we needed. It is set in a beautiful rural location but not far from town. The farm is great fun - we enjoyed the pool and sand pit most days. Pizza night was a nice addition to the holiday. We had car problems during our stay, and John and Alison went out of their way to help us try to get it sorted. We would definitely recommend Waterloo Farm Holidays, and we hope to go back in the future!

  • "We had a fabulous time at Saffron cottage and used it as a base to explore Cornwall."

    The house was extremely well equipped and the kids enjoyed making use of the heated swimming pool. Thanks to Alison and John for 'pizza night' where we all enjoyed making pizzas in their outdoor oven.

    ***Owners Response*** Thank you for taking the time to complete your feedback following your recent at Saffron Cottage. We've spoken with the owner who assures us that this is the first instance that they have been made aware of this issue. The internal bathroom requires the extractor fan to be on when using the shower, the only explanation we can think of was that the extractor fan was not used during your stay causing moisture to build up during the week. We have now placed a sign asking guests to ensure the fan is used at all times when occupying the bathroom. We are pleased to hear that despite the point raised you enjoyed your stay at Saffron Cottage.

  • "The barn was very well equipped, having everything you could need."

    It was comfortable, very quiet, warm and inviting. We were even invited to attend the performance of a band at a local café by the owners. We couldn't have wished for more.
