  • "Lovely holiday cottage had everything we needed for our stay."

    We felt curtains needed some attention does not fit properly and gape. Otherwise we loved everything about cottage, owners input and location and would stay there again.

  • "We loved it, and so did our Spinone; especially the enclosed garden."

    We were lucky with the weather; but if it had been wet and muddy, keeping the carpets clean and dry could have been challenging; especially without a hoover. The log fire was really appreciated in the evenings.

  • "A really lovely place to stay."

    Quiet, peaceful and well placed. Would like to have seen curtains that fit the bedroom and lounge areas properly and somewhere to hang wet jackets and place dirty, muddy, wet boots after walking.

  • "Toadstools - Perfect for Two Beautifully presented in a lovely peaceful location."

    Everything was spotlessly clean and tidy. There was a nice welcome pack of shortbread, tea and milk. The bed was super comfy and there is everything you need here for two. The log burner made it so cosy and was very welcome after spending the days walking in November. The outside area is neat and tidy with secure fencing and gate so your pooch can mooch about safely. The hosts were great - attentive and helpful and just a stone’s throw away if needed.

  • "Lovely cottage in a great location."

    No where seemed to far away. Really nice pub less than a mile away if you don't want to travel far for dinner. We took our dog and it was an ideal location for a couple and a dog.

    Mark and Caroline are wonderful hosts not intrusive but always there if needed . It is in an excellent position to explore Cornwall there is a post office and the Halfway house pub which is dog friendly and serves excellent food within 15 minutes walk . The small private outdoor space was ideal to sit and relax and was secure for our dog .We would not hesitate to book Toadstools again thanks once again for a great holiday .

  • "A lovely quiet location with good access to lots of wonderful bits of Cornwall."

    Cottage was well-equipped, including plenty of towels. A recently improved outdoor area really made a difference to the appearance - though a pity we couldn't take full advantage of the new gazebo area for our short stay due to the bitter April winds! A log-burner and comfortable bed helped us through the chilly nights. Friendly owners - and very talented with all their building and carpentry!

  • "This is a comfortable little cottage for 2 people."

    We used it as a base for the week to walk a section of the South West Coast Path. It is clean and fresh and seems newly decorated.The kitchen is small but was perfectly adequate for our needs. The lounge is comfortable and cosy and we really enjoyed coming home in the evening and snuggling in front of the wood burning fire. The double bed is comfortable. The cottage is in a quiet location but only a few miles from Falmouth and the coast. It is a good base to explore the Lizard peninsular and this southern most tip of Cornwall.

  • "Our trip was a much anticipated and way overdue visit to see our son - lockdown and been so long and we had had to postpone 3 trips during 2020."

    Toadstools was the perfect location. Very clean, tidy and comfortable with thoughtful gestures such as just enough milk in the fridge for that all important first cup of tea after a long journey! We were warmly greeted by the hosts - it was late when we arrived and although the directions were good the signage on the roadside was not totally clear. We would definitely recommend this accommodation and hope to return, making more use of the delightful garden area next time.

  • "I loved my stay at Toadstools."

    Cosy, comfortable and quiet, all you need for a relaxing break. The cottage was ideally located for exploring both Falmouth area, and further South on the Lizard Peninsula. The log burner was great, and there was enough kindling and logs provided for the first few days. The owners were friendly, yet unobtrusive. I will definitely stay at Toadstools again.

    We loved how private it was from the house, with its very own little garden to let our puppy out securely. It is situated in the perfect place for us to explore Cornwall widely. The hosts were so friendly, ensuring we had a great stay. We would highly recommend a stay at Toadstools!

    Toadstools is a lovely little cottage tucked away from any bustle. The place is perfect for the general south Cornwall area close to Falmouth and the Lizard

  • "We arrived at the converted barn, it was absolutely immaculate, we never saw the owners until the last day, that was a good thing as they trusted us with their cottage, I found that very trusting!"

    It wasn’t without foundation as we left it as we found it. It was a little isolated, however,it was central to everything in Cornwall, I couldn’t get over the total ‘blackness’ it was so dark you couldn’t see a hand in front of you! I throughly recommend this rental, you will love it!

Falmouth 1 mile; Truro 9 miles.

One of the oldest market towns in Cornwall, the pretty port of Penryn boasts a wealth of historic architecture and harbour heritage with attractive granite buildings steeply sloping along the cobbled streets down to the sea. There’s a good choice of restaurants, cafes and pubs in the town, along with a museum offering free entry, and the tranquil Enys Gardens on the outskirts of the town, providing a range of grounds and a peaceful haven. Further along the Penryn River, just one mile towards the sea you’ll find the famous seaport of Falmouth, with a host of things to keep you entertained including harbour-side pubs and eateries offering spectacular views, stunning Blue Flag beaches and a bustling town centre. Visit the National Maritime Museum for a taste of Cornwall’s sea-faring history, or the fine Tudor fortress of Pendennis Castle, superb set gazing out to sea. You don’t have to venture far from Penryn to discover Cornwall’s many sights, delights and stunning coastline, and this is the perfect character base from which to see it all.
