    It’s clean, comfortable and well equipped. Situated in a quiet location, even though there are neighbouring properties and a farm and it’s very central for exploring the local area. The ‘adult bunk room’ is tiny and had a child-sized duvet which meant my teenager’s feet stuck out the bottom end - luckily the weather was fairly warm when we stayed! The WiFi is excellent and the new smart TV is great for watching a movie on a stormy afternoon /evening.

    Good afternoon Julia, Thanks for your really positive feedback. We've taken on board your feedback and changed the duvets to larger adult sized duvets. Many thanks again. Best wishes, Cathy and David Property Owner

We were very lucky to have brilliant weather so could sit outside to eat every evening. 4 televisions gave all members of the family their own space and programmes! Would love to stay again having discovered so many lovely places nearby suitable for wheelchairs.

    There were a few minor things on our arrival that were broken which we have informed them about. It was clean and tidy and had a real touch of 'class' about it.

Very well placed for exploring both coasts and everything in between! If you have not visited Shaugh Bridge on Dartmoor, it's well worth it. Make sure you wear walking boots as it's very hilly and uneven under foot.

    Perfect base for a good holiday around North Cornwall. Close enough to get to good beaches like Widemouth Bay but out of the way enough to feel like you’re properly in the country.

Only thing I would say is don’t always trust Google Maps as it takes you down single track roads which can be a bit daunting when a tractor is coming the opposite way

    Thank you for your comments Elaine. We have addressed all the minor updates in our week here carrying out the routine maintenance schedule to maintain an excellent level of service at The Wagon House. In respect of the Mezzanine, this is not included in the accommodation of up to 6 in the 3 ground floor bedrooms listed on Sykes website - this makes it 7!. It is not a bedroom and Sykes won't let us market it as such. It just adds flexibility. We will alter the customer details to state that the staircase to the mezzanine is narrow and that only able adults should use it. A stair gate is provided to enable parents to restrict access for young children. Thank you again, David. Property Owner

The only complaint we had was the lounge TV... a nightmare to figure out and when we did BBC Stations kept dropping off. our favourite places were Boscastle, Bude and Tintagel, beware of your Sat Nav as ours kept taking us through very narrow lanes !!!!

    There were just two things that I feel the need to comment on. The first thing was when we arrived there was nearly 2 weeks worth of recycling opposite the front door. Whilst papers and plastics were neat the glass was overflowing with bottles. When we read the welcome book I found a note saying that we must take the recycling down the hill as it wasn’t fair on the housekeeper and the next guests would appreciate it!!! Failure to do so could incur a £20 cost. Needless to say I was furious. My 80 year old husband took it down but I found the note to be offensive. The second thing was the tv in the lounge needed some sort of degree to operate. Also a sky box sits on the floor with cables that look like spaghetti junction hanging out. This was really surprising as the whole of the property apart from this is neatly finished with every attention to detail met
