  • "Another great stay at Whitsand."

    Just as good as the first. Lovely cottage with everything you need for a stay, from toiletries to a small hamper to tin foil and cling film. You don’t need to bring much from home. Excellent hosts. Comfy bed. Superbly clean. Access to washing machine if you need it. Set in a very quiet area. 20 minute drive to the coast for some superb walks. Great base with lots to do in the area.

  • "Lovely cottage very comfortable and spotless, with lots of extra touches such as binoculars to look at the wildlife from the garden which overlooks fields and lovely welcome packs for both us and our dog."

    Hosts Lisa and Felix are very welcoming. They sent us the guest information pack before hand which was very helpful as well as offering to make any table bookings. We were able to arrange a food shop to be delivered on our arrival day as well. Would definitely recommend a stay and we plan to return next year.

  • "The Cottage was clean and comfortable also had items I didn’t expect to be there for our comfort, the garden was lovely for my dogs ,enough room for them to play and relax ,beautiful views from the garden whilst sitting with our morning cup of tea ,the hosts were very nice too ,welcoming on our arrival and proved to be the same during our time at whitsand."

    I’m sorry but I have one negative that we weren’t aware of and that is ,the area where we were is not suitable for disabled people, I’d have mobility issues and although I can walk with sticks a short way, the area surrounding is very steep ,I would have liked to walk my dogs each day without having to drive to find somewhere flat, which of course I had to do ,this isn’t a reflection on the Cottage, I think perhaps you should make sure on your website that the areas surrounding your cottages are informative for people with mobility issues ,this problem did mar the relaxing holiday I wanted as I wanted to hang my car keys up ,other than this the Cottage is perfect for a quiet holiday.

    Lisa couldn’t have been more helpful, friendly and kind. We’ve stayed in many cottages over the years and have to say Lisa was easily the best host. Location wise, it’s a short drive to the idyllic Portwrinkle beach, very dog friendly Seaton beach. Lovely Looe and Polperro ports.

    It was definitely one of the best cottages we have stayed at. Lisa and Felix were lovely hosts. They had gone above and beyond with the information provided, the cleanliness and the decor. You definitely need a car, as the cottage is a bit off the beaten track, but we loved exploring the coast and moors in this beautiful corner of Cornwall. We would definitely go again.

  • "Excellent cottage and a friendly welcome."

    The human and dog welcome packs were above and beyond and much appreciated. The cottage was clean, light and airy and had an enclosed garden - perfect for the dog. The facilities were good and location was central to the areas we wanted to explore. The local pub (the Rod and Line) was also friendly and served good food. The only downside was the abundance of flies. There was no obvious source (bad smells for instance) but the presence of fly spray and a electric bug zapper suggests we weren't the first to have this issue. It didn't detract much from our stay though - it just meant we had to keep the bedroom door and window shut as much as possible. Overall - would definitely recommend.

  • "We found the cottage absolutely amazing and was so surprised to find everything we could ever need inside."

    The cottage is lovely and we enjoyed sitting in the garden looking over the fields into the distance. The walk to the pub is lovely if you have the weather and is just enough to walk off the amazing food they serve. Just be careful of the traffic, and when we realised we forgot a torch for the walk back, we found one in the cottage. We couldn't have wished for a nicer place to stay during our week in Cornwall and will definitely look to book again in the future.
