  • "Lovely accommodation, perfect for two people."

    The Snug had everything we needed. The owners have thought about everything and have made it cosy and comfortable. The property was a bit tricky to find initially as the postcode took us to Merry Meadows Farm, other than that it was perfect.

    Spotlessly clean, well appointed for a small cottage but immaculate in every aspect. A perfect place for quiet getaway for 2. We were so happy with our stay that we have already booked again for next year but in the owners larger barn convertion at the same farm. Highly recommended

  • "Great 2 night short break."

    Kim the owner was on hand when we arrived to give us a quick tour of the lovely warm "Snug". Beautifully presented, clean and inviting. You can tell that Kim has put in a lot of thought and effort into making our stay at The Snug one to remember. Lovely and comfortable furnishings, well equipped kitchen, great shower and even a table and chairs outside to catch the last of the sun! Great location to visit all the pretty harbours in the area and the Eden Project too which is only a few minutes down the road. We would definitely want to return to the Snug or the separate larger house next door. Thank Kim for a great stay!

  • "Super clean, comfortable (bed was particularly comfy!"

    ) and suitably named! It really was a snug.. the owners were friendly and accomodating. Perfectly located, not far from Charlestown Harbour with it's great food places, views, history and relaxed atmosphere. We are getting married in July and the snug gave us a much needed getaway, a break from wedding prep and the children. Sunny morning courtyard to enjoy a quiet coffee before setting off for the day, you really could be anywhere!!

    It was very clean, warm, comfortable with a lovely hot shower. Not only that, it had a lot of extra, thoughtful touches that made it a very special place. It was so cosy, relaxing and peaceful. Located in a quiet, scenic place, but also had easy access to some of Cornwalls most beautiful places. The hosts were also extremely welcoming, friendly, relaxed and were on had if needed. I definitely would return for another stay.

  • "Snug Cottage is exactly as it reads on the tin."

    A tad difficult to find with the final directions but I think only because we came from an opposite direction but once we passed, turned around and spotted the two garage doors it was fine. Our first impression of the cottage was great, sunshine on the seats outside and a lovely welcome from Kim. As soon as you go in you can tell it was spotless and clean. The owners have thought of everything and the attention to detail and workmanship for the renovation is excellent. We have had a lovely week there 17th - 24th July and were very lucky with the weather. It is in a great spot for getting around to all the lovely places Cornwall has to offer and is near enough walking distance to the Eden Project. Easy to get to Charlestown, St Austell, Mevagissy, Looe, Polperro, Fowey and a simple 50 min drive down to St Ives. Both Snug Cottage and The Barn (which is on the same plot) are immaculate, definitey 5 star ratings :)

  • "My Husband and I stayed at The Snug last week, and we were both really impressed with the holiday cottage and the warm greeting and goodbye we got from Kim."

    The property was beautifully decorated throughout, and had everything we needed. We were out exploring Cornwall on a daily basis and it was a lovely retreat to get back to after long days out. We went to many places, and would recommend Port Isaac, Land's End, Falmouth, (especially Pendennis Castle and the Ranch Steakhouse & Grill), St Ives, Charlestown, The Royal Cornwall Museum in Truro, Newquay, The Lost Gardens of Heligan and Jamaica Inn for wonderful food. You can also just sit out in the courtyard and enjoy the peace and quiet or go for a walk around the lakes at the back of the property. We will be going back for another holiday so we can explore more of Cornwall.

    A lovely little cottage in a secluded location. Cosy with good facilities. Easy access to local attractions and not a stretch to get around the rest of Cornwall. The owners are lovely, nothing too much bother. If self catering all the main supermarkets are within easy reach. Poldark country so much to see and do. May well return next year

  • "Everything was perfect."

    The location was quiet, helped considerably by perfect weather for the week. The cottage was ideal for the two of us with a fully equipped kitchen area and owners present next door. We have only one complaint - your map on your website showing location. Yours took us to Resugga Farm off Hallaze Road, not Lower Resugga Farm in Rescorla about 1/2 mile to the north on another turning off the Penwithick Road. Thank goodness for GPS and Google Maps street view.

    It was very cosy, comfortable and blissfully quiet. We were made very welcome by Kim & Gary, the latter even venturing outside during a major thunderstorm to check up on our wellbeing and being soaked in the process. Not many people are so committed to looking after their guests! A lot of thought had obviously been put into making the Snug ideal for a delightful break in a gorgeous environment.

  • "The Snug was an absolute delight."

    Well equipped, cosy and warm. Facilities were excellent. The induction hob & combi cooker were more than adequate for our needs and we cooked some lovely meals while there. The location in Rescorla, down a little lane, was discreet but within easy reach of St Austell and the many other nearby attractions. Eden, Heligan, Charlestown, Fowey are all just a short drive. We went to St Ives, just an hour away, and there is so much to see and do, with the satisfying knowledge you will return to a little sanctuary of calm when you have sated your appetite for exploration. All the major supermarkets are within easy reach so self catering is no effort. The rural setting is just gorgeous. We saw deer from our window and many varieties of birds. The owners, who live in the main house were warm, friendly and helpful, yet unobtrusive. All in all a very satisfying break and cliched it may sound, but we would happily go back. I can highly recommend this lovely little cottage.
