  • "Loved our break in the cabin, all as described on site."

    Our hosts, Peter and Liz were very welcoming, gave us a tour of the cabin explaining about water supply and some do's and don't regarding the property. Peter and Liz had left us a fresh baked loaf of bread, some bacon from the local farm shop, eggs from their hens and milk and butter, we have never been to a property where the hosts are so generous with a welcome pack. The cabin was comfortable, a relaxed atmosphere although we only use as a base, out all day. Two very friendly dogs, Mag and Bryn, who welcome you every day, they love a treat, a good fuss and chasing balls. A good location for walkers, and anyone who likes a bit of solitude, apart from Douglas the Cockerell and an owl, it's exceptionally quiet. The alpacas are mesmerising, you could watch them for hours. Would definitely visit again, highly recommended location.

  • "The Cabin was great, it was well equipped and very comfortable."

    The site was amazing for a small holding and the hosts could not have been more friendly or helpful. The best of all no noise from traffic.

  • "We had a lovely week at the cabin, set in beautiful countryside."

    We were met by our fantastic hosts, Peter and Liz, who made us very welcome, as did their dogs, Bryn and Mag who were a joy to have around. They provided us with all the basics for cooking, as well as bacon, eggs, butter and Peter's home made bread. The cabin is in a great location, and very quiet and peaceful. So whether you want to go sightseeing further afield, or just chill out, playing with the dogs and feeding the alpacas, it's a perfect spot. I would definitely recommend the cabin for a quiet escape.

  • "We had a lovely stay at The cabin at Lowley Farm."

    The hosts Peter and Liz are lovely and were there to greet us and show us the cabin. Their information folder was full of good places to eat drink and visit. They left us fresh eggs from their lovely hens, Cornish bacon, milk and butter in the fridge for our arrival, which included a home made loaf of bread all of which was greatfully received and consumed for breakfast! The alpacas, boarder collies and chickens were delightful and became our friends for the week we stayed. The cabin itself is very well furnished and spotlessly clean, I would highly recommend this holiday lodge for a romantic stay in the Cornish country side surrounded by local wildlife. Lin and Mark

  • "The Cabin is a lovely place to stay, very comfortable with everything you need for a relaxing break."

    The owners of the cabin are very friendly and helpful explaining how everything works and recommending places to visit. On arrival we were met by the owners and shown around. There was a lovely welcome gift of homemade bread, freshly laid eggs, bacon and fruit. I would highly recommend The Cabin for anyone who would like a relaxing break.

  • "We had a wonderful stay at Lowley Brook Farm."

    Peter and Liz are great hosts. The cabin was spotless and had all the amenities that one would need for a comfortable stay. Peter had baked fresh bread for us and also provided us with their hen's fresh eggs, local fresh milk and Bacon from the local farm shop Tre Pol and Pen. Butter, cooking oil, sugar, coffee and tea as well as assorted fruits were also kept for our consumption. Therefore we did not need to buy anything on arrival. Peter and Liz greeted us on arrival and offered suggestions about local things. We managed to feed the alpacas with Peter which was a unique experience for us. Their dogs Bryn and Magg are very gentle and were very keen to involve us in throwing their ball. What can one say about most majestic Douglas and his harem which he guards diligently . You wake up to his crowing and he is very keen to come to your doorstep to make his presence felt. My wife bribed him with breadcrumbs, he quickly became her devoted fan. Peter uses water from their brook (lowley brook) for everything. The water is filtered to 4 microns and tastes very good indeed. During our stay it rained quite a lot which made the brook water minimally cloudy, but Peter kindly provided us with big bottles of drinking water, much appreciated. In spite of inclement weather we had a good time at Lowley Brook Farm. We would recommend this place for any couple wanting peace and quiet away from the hustle and bustle of urban life. Thank you peter and Liz

  • "The cabin was very comfortable."

    It was very clean and had everything we needed for our two week stay. It was central to touring around Cornwall, we managed to see a lot of exciting places. Liz and Peter were very welcoming and friendly. We were met with a loaf of bread straight out of the oven, plus bacon and eggs. We got to feed the alpacas and see the newborns, it was really lovely. Their two dogs Mags and Bryn were also very friendly and loved us to play ball with them. They have chickens and a very lively cockerel called Douglas. All in all it was a very happy holiday and we would recommend it to anyone. We hope to holiday with them again very soon

  • "A great week."

    We only chose the cabin because of its convenient location for places and people we wanted to see. The added bonus was the lovely animals we could experience such as playing with the collies and feeding the alpacas. The feisty cockerel (Douglas) gave an extra edge - water pistols provided to repel attacks! You need to like animals to stay here. Fortunately we do.

  • "Our stay was wonderful."

    The cabin was lovely, clean and comfortable. The owners Peter and Liz were very kind and had some good recommendations on where we could visit. They let us help feed the alpacas each evening and were happy for us to go and spend time with them whenever we wanted. Their two friendly and playful dogs Mags and Bryn also kept us company when we sat on the porch/deck. I would (and have) highly recommend staying here to friends, and hope to go back one day in the future.

    The cabin was perfect, very clean and comfortable. Peter and Liz thought of all the things you need to make your stay enjoyable. Property was located to access many attractions without too much of a drive. The view from the cabin was lovely and felt very secluded and peaceful. Nothing was too much trouble.

    The lodge was spotless! We had fresh bread, milk, bacon and eggs on arrival. Peter and Liz were happy to give us advise on where to visit (highly recommend St Nectans Glen) some beautiful views and lovely walks. Helping out with the alpacas was so much fun something different and we loved it. The two dogs, Mag and Brin were adorable so friendly also not forgetting Douglas and his ladies - Cockerel and hens -, they are fun to watch. Lowley Brook Farm is definitely a place to go for some adventures never the less if you want to just chill and read a book then you can do that as well. We truly loved it there and Peter and Liz were fabulous such good hosts, although we feel like we have made some new friends. Definitely recommend a visit it's tucked away in the perfect location. We will most certainly go back.

    The accommodation was incredibly clean and very homely. We were given a run down of the area, a list of local places and things to do whilst we there, lots of places to walk including a lovely walk up to a local farm shop and cafe which serves great coffee and cake. The cabin in set in such a peaceful location, which meant everyday after we got back we could just make dinner and relax, with no interruptions. They have 2 very friendly dogs, some chickens and loads of alpacas which makes the stay even more exciting! We would definitely go again, and it's a 10/10 from us!
