    The owners are lovely, left us fresh milk, and the hut had everything in it you could need for your stay including a small stove and kitchen utensils, crockery and cutlery. The bed was comfy and the shower and toilet clean. We LOVED getting into the wood fired hot tub every night watching the sun set over the fields. Pure bliss. We have now said we will come back every year. If you are thinking of booking a stay at Skye Cottages please DO IT.

    We haven’t been away from kids and haven’t spent time just two of us for nine years. And wanted a secluded, quiet and romantic place with a hot tub and fire pit. We got all what we wanted and hosts were so welcoming and hospitable! We felt looked after and at the same time without any pressure or feeling that anyone is around. We enjoyed fire pit and got wood supply without any limit and we appreciated that this hut had everything one needs for a getaway like that. It was cosy, warm, sparkling clean and very comfortable everywhere. It has all a couple needs for a romantic stay! Bed sheets were fresh and crispy and plates, cutlery and cooking appliances were hug quality and it was nice to eat and drink using them. Hot tub was amazing! It gave us couple of hours of joy and pleasure sitting watching stars and enjoying silence and listening to music! Loved every minute there and I agree with other reviewers that this is a place to remember and keep coming back to. It’s definitely on our list to come back when we get another chance! Lovely place! Thank you to the hosts/owners! We will be back :)…

    The owners were very friendly and helpful during our stay even though we only saw them at the beginning of our stay. They ensured that there was plenty of wood for the stove and hot tub and were easily contacted if required. The only small drawback was the sound of the dairy farm from around 5am but that is to be expected when staying in a rural place! We would highly recommend this place for a relaxing holiday!!!

    It is presented so nicely, and it's fully equipped, even down to the bath robes for the hop, skip and jump to the delightful hot hub! Outside is well equipped also, positioned right next to the glorious orchard, with views across the open fields. It was lovely to relax in the evening enjoying the tranquillity of the location and the warmth of the flames from the fire pit. Pete, the owner, was there to greet us too, it was so lovely to meet him, and he made us feel so welcome.....thank you Pete. We will most definitely be returning, and we have already recommended Orchard to our family and friends too. See you soon Pete :)

  • "We loved our stay at orchard!"

    The hot tub was also very relaxing. The fridge broke a few days in through overheating, however it was on the hottest week of the year so its understandable. Plus the owners went out of their way to store our goods (holidays presents) in their fridge or an empty caravan fridge, which was very much appreciated. Only one niggle would be the bushes/trees could have done with a trim, allowing a bit more light and viewing out from the decking. If you're a city dweller and aren't used to driving rural roads be warned, they are tight! But so worth it :) We would love to go back!

  • "We had a wonderful stay, the setting is gorgeous, the hut was incredibly well kept and had everything we could need in it, the hot tub was really relaxing and keeping it going ourselves with the log burner was actually quite fun."

    We had a great time using the hut as a base when we went out in the day before coming back in the evening, the sheltered outside area was a nice touch and allowed us to have dinner outside most nights. The only tiniest quibble I could have and this is picky, the front door of the hut was very stiff, and pushing it closed enough to lock required really putting your shoulder in, fine for us we're fairly young, but I can imagine an older couple struggling with it. That's it though, otherwise we had a perfect little escape and we will definitely be back in the future.

  • "Just love this place."

    This was our second stay here and it was every bit as good as we remembered. Beautiful shepherd's hut, with everything you need for a peaceful, relaxing holiday. The new decking area meant you could find a spot to relax in the sun, or cool off in the shade, from early morning to late evening. It's set in the perfect location for beautiful walks along the camel trail. There's plenty of places locally to visit, if you care tear yourself away from the farm. Would love to return but with prices doubling for the same week next year we may have to save up for a while first.

    Having travelled worldwide to many exotic places this was the best. The shepherds hut with hot tub was perfect. It was comfortable, peaceful, private and clean. We woke in the morning after a superb sleep, to see Deer, fox, barn owl and rabbits in the field next door. Wildlife was abundant with many birds coming for their feed. Each day we visited attractions that we found excellent, from Port Isaac to Lost Gardens of Heligan, Charlestown to Tintagel and Wheal Martyn Claypits to Padstow. Nothing dissapointed, but too much good food and cream Teas will have to be worked off over next few weeks. Overall an absolutely fantastic holiday, wish it had been two weeks now.
