  • "A beautiful clean cottage with everything you need for your stay."

    Lovely little welcome with scones, jam and clotted cream. Owner was lovely and easily contactable for anything you need. There's a folder with lots of information in which we found really helpful. Me and my partner went just after new year so the weather wasn't the best, but it was perfect for a quiet getaway and we still had a wonderful time and drove into town. We would definitely recommend this cottage and will be looking to return in the future

  • "A lovely place for a relaxing break or longer holiday."

    Five stars all round, friendly hosts, comfy beds, clean, warm, pub within walking distance and an amazing bay at the bottom of the road. Located in a beautiful farmland setting, we loved seeing the sheep peering over the fence and the hens running free. An added bonus was the relaxing bubbly hot tub for when the weather was good and the log burner for colder evenings. We would definitely book again.

  • "Great place to stay."

    Awesome Views. The Meadowside Cottage was clean and cozy. The unexpected welcome package went down well. Who doesn't like Cream Tea, milk and cider drinks? The Hot Tub was wonderful even though the weather was chilly and windy. Meadowside is well located with just a 20 min walk down to the Harbour with a Pub on the way. Conveniently close to Penzance, St. Michael's Mount, St Ives, and Lands End. The Hosts were wonderful and friendly. They told us of things going on in the village. I would highly recommend Meadowside cottage. It was warm, clean, cozy with a great view. Thank you for a Great Holiday

  • "Had a wonderful stay at Meadowside cottage."

    Shame the weather wasn’t the best but it was like a little Home away from home in the most beautiful idyllic countryside. The hot tub was an absolute luxury and heaven after a cold and wet day of walking. The only thing I would say, the weather was so bad with wind and rain and there was no shelter for the hot tub so made using it in that kind of weather difficult. The little welcome package was great and it was all enclosed for the little doggies so was safe and secure. The wonderful log burner made all the difference on those cold nights. The cottage had everything u needed. Would highly recommend this cottage to anyone looking for a wonderful, quite break away in the county side.

    The cottage is lovely, and the girls enjoyed the facilities in 'the shed'. The honesty shop was also really useful, thank you. Time of year obviously, but we found (as we didn't really plan) the local pubs were difficult to get a table at but we managed. St Buryan Inn was very nice. Wondering if we will rebook!

    ..from the moment you arrive, turn the corner into Borah Farm to stunning views & homemade scones waiting for you. The barn has everything you need to relax & have a great time, we loved it so much. Its clean, comfortable & very relaxing. The owners are so friendly....the Son even allowed our Daughter a tractor ride which of course made her week! Expect a visit from their dogs, Coco came every day & chickens roam freely. The hot tub is lovely...just wish the cover wasnt so heavy but the owner is aware & plans to change it. Cannot wait to return next year. Thanks all x

  • "Meadowside, beautiful Meadowside, well, what a well equipped beautiful 'home from home'."

    It had absolutely everything that was required, in excellent quality, and thoughtfulness. Additionally the decor was beautiful, particularly to my taste. Many colours and designs similar to my own, made a special difference! Additional special, a super welcome cream tea, how lovely! We were also greeted by the lovely good mannered dogs, who greeted our own dog with lots of friendly wags! Meadowside has the ability to be completely enclosed with its own driveway and gates, for doggy safety, fabulous! Meadowside has its own abundance of private garden and lawns, for those with children, I imagine a completely safe condition. Beautiful! Just wonderful! A hot tub also, not that we wished to use it, but can I imagine superb for those who like to do. A delightful walk around locally, and even the ability to go down by foot to the lovley Lamorna Cove, but it is steep! We took advantage also of a take away Thai, from a little caravan kitchen, just half a mile down the road, which was superb. All about Meadowside is highest marks, and we recommend it from the bottom of our hearts!

    What an amazing week!!! The accommodation exceeded what was expected, very comfortable (especially the bed), homely and had every extra you could have wanted. Even a cream team awaited us and a lovely welcome from the owner. It has the most beautiful view from the dining room/sitting room area, and the hot tub is only a few steps away. I really cannot recommend this place enough, it is a little piece of heaven on earth.

  • "This property is very good indeed."

    The weather was dreadful and if the property had not been this good we would not have felt so cosy with the wood burner, in such wet weather. Unfortunately, the weather stopped us from using the hot tub. The cottage was most comfortable and the master bedroom was excellent. All facilities were within easy reach and with Mousehole just down the road it was the perfect experience. We would use this property again. I did feel that the kitchen units were in need of some updating but it was such a small issue and everything else was provided.
