  • "Our stay at Little Retreat was fabulous."

    Beautifully decorated and clean throughout. Absolutely everything we needed was there for us. Couldn't have asked for more. The property is on a lovely small, quiet and well tended park. On arrival we found the owner had left some milk,tea and biscuits for us...thank you,lovely touch. At the rear of the property we had a very friendly robin coming along to see us every day. Overall we had a very enjoyable stay and will not hesitate to stay here again next time we come down to Cornwall. Thank you again.

    Thankyou so much for your great review! So happy you had a fabulous stay and found everything you needed within the property . Much appreciated that you thought little retreat is beautifully decorated ,and clean through out. Glad you liked the tea milk,coffee and biscuits! The Robin is very friendly and enjoys visiting...glad he came to see you! Thankyou very much and we look forward to welcoming you back next time. Regards Claire Property Owner

    The property was beautiful and comfortable and had everything we needed for the week however there was a few points to consider for future reference the cleaning does need a bit of improvement there was a lot of cobwebs in most rooms the blinds are really really dusty also the radiator in bathroom really needs a good clean along with the tiles also there was chocolate from previous people left on floor in the lounge these are things I notice as I am a holiday home cleaner myself however it was not bad enough for me not to return we had an amazing week and will recommend and I feel if these little things were sorted then this would be a amazing little place also the tv needs looking at it is not straight and maybe cleaners could remember to change clocks when needed but once again a lovely week

    Thank you for your feedback and review. We are happy you thought our bungalow is beautiful and comfortable,and you had an amazing week! Also that you found everything you needed within the property that you needed. And that you would recommend our property. Thank you for hi-lighting the few issues you found, This has been noted and now been addressed with the cleaner. The t.v is fixed to the wall with an “arm” so that it can be pulled out from the wall and “angled” for viewing from the sofa, Many thanks & Regards Property Owner

  • "Good location central for exploring."

    Had a broken TV remote so phoned owners quick excellent response replaced BUT on down side cleanliness was not good. Bedding stained so had to wash pillowcases. Windows filthy not seen a cleaner for months. Shower had black mold down walls and around tray. If the property was given a thoroughly clean and a lick of paint to refresh it would be fine.

    Thank you for your review, It appears that you have been slightly unlucky with regards to timing as we had already arranged for the outside window sills to be washed and cleaned after you had left. The silicone around/in the shower(where the mould has gathered) is to be replaced on Sat 25th. Thank you for bringing this to our attention as we do not live at the property we need feedback to rectify any problems. Kind Regards and Many Thanks, Claire Heathcote gathered) is to be replaced on Saturday the 25th Property Owner

    The facilities in the bungalow were good and there was everything there to have a good holiday. We loved the birds that came in the back garden and there was a cheeky squirrel that kept looking in the back door. We loved it that much we have booked for the same time next year.

  • "Two days before our holiday we were told that the village pub was not open for the season."

    We choose this property as I have difficulty walking and we would be able to get a meal and drink with out having to drive anywhere. My husband also wanted to go fishing but when he asked about this was told that this was not available because of covid 19 restriction however when he went to the lake only 2/3 people were fishing.We therefore had to drive 11 miles to do this and get a meal so therefore very disappointed with amenities that was not there as advertised on your website

  • "Accommodation in itself was good, but not to be told before arrival that the on site pub was closed wasn't very professional."

    The amount of travelling we had to do because of that was ridiculous. Also the photos on advertisement show a lake, we entered that area only to be told that it was private property and more or less said we had to leave.

    Thank you for providing feedback on your stay at Little Retreat. We apologise regarding the pub that is closed. We were not made aware that the pub had closed due to COVID-19 and have now updated the website to show this. Property Owner

    The only down side there was not much outside space although the website said garden with patio furniture there was only a small garden bench so to small for 3 of us to sit on.

    Thank you for staying at Little Retreat and providing feedback on your stay. We have now amended our website regarding the patio furniture. Property Owner

  • "The site said tumble dryer when in fact it was a washer/dryer which didn't dry as well as a tumble dryer."

    A DVD player would be useful. The lanes to the site were very precarious and it would be less stressful if we had been able to drive through the site direct to the main road, however the gate was locked! This is not a negative response as we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Little Retreat and Cornwall.

  • "A delightful place to stay."

    Everything appeared to be almost new and the place was very tastefully furnished. Well equipped, although a few more plates and bowls would have been useful. There were four of us staying and sometimes we needed more than the four provided. Very quiet peaceful retreat, well situated for getting to both coasts. Road to the site was quite narrow so we often had to back up to get past oncoming traffic. Would happily stay again. Highly recommended.

    Thankyou for your feedback,we have now added more plates and bowls. Regards Property Owner

    The bungalow was all newly furnished and extremely comfortable and we would not hesitate to stay there again. It is in a beautiful setting in the countryside just outside of Liskeard which is a great location for being able to travel to both the north and south coast. It was also extremely quiet and peaceful. We highly recommend it.

  • "1.The accommodation was really lovely, well thought out and furnished, couldn't fault it at all :) 2."

    It would be good to have a few more bowls and large plates (to serve on) especially if there four people staying. 3. The listings stated that the pub and restaurant on site would be open, but it appears its only open certain times of the year. 4. Although there was tea, milk and biscuits left as a welcome, (which was great) perhaps a larger welcome pack could be left to get the holiday makers over to the next day to go shopping, as the nearest shop is quite a distance from the site. We only say this as we were hoping to have a meal in the restaurant when we got there and were going to go shopping the next day, but as the restaurant wasn't open we had to go shopping immediately after a long journey, . 5. Please note: these are observations not criticisms, as the place was gorgeous and a credit to the owners. thank you very much for letting us stay in your lovely holiday home. ******* Owner Response ******* Thank you for your feedback, we have now amended the property description to state the opening times of the local restaurant, we have also increased the amount of cutlery, plates and bowls at the property. Again we thank you for your feedback and hope to see you again soon.
