  • "Lovely cottage on a working farm."

    Very peaceful and relaxing setting . The cottage was very clean with excellent facilities and the owner even supplied a welcome pack of food essentials. Perfectly placed for visiting all of Cornwall. Highly recommended.

  • "The Vine cottage was beautiful and peaceful and worth the stay."

    The scenery was beautiful and it was lovely seeing the cows and sheep close up as well. The welcome pack was a lovely touch and also Trevor the peacock, who greeted us when we arrived. Great location and easy to get to beaches, activities and pubs/restaurants. Overall an excellent holiday. Thank you Will

  • "As we both suffer a litle with our backs, a few cushions would have been appreciated, both for the sofas, and outdoor seats, but did not distract from a very enjoyable stay."

    Trev was a joy and quite entertaining! The visiters book was full, could do with a replacement.

    The location is stunning. Cons: The lane leading to the premises is appalling. Need a 4X4. The mattresses are dreadful. What are the Peacocks doing there? They kept us awake all night.

  • "Whilst the cottage was in a lovely remote spot and the cleanliness was very good, I was disappointed with the outside area."

    The pictures on booking showed this to be very neat and tidy and it wasn't at all. The grass was very overgrown and weeds everywhere including lots of nettles. I didn't want to moan while we were there as we wanted to just enjoy our break but it did put us off using the outdoor area. I was told that if I had mentioned this to the owner it would have been sorted but I really don't think you should have to mention it when you pay £1000 for a four star accommodation. My garden at home is always neat and I don't have paying guests to come and stay. Overall It was a lovely holiday and this is a minor niggle but was disappointed and we won't be returning.

    Many thanks for taking the time to give your feedback, firstly I'm sorry that you were disappointed by the outside space. We work hard to make sure that the cottage is clean and well maintained so our guests can enjoy their stay. Obviously on this occasion we got the balance between a natural space and a formal lawn wrong. This was also exacerbated by the warm weather we had which lead to a burst of growth. Some of the green areas have been sown with wildflower seeds so they should give a beautiful display of colour and a provide a habitat for insects and pollinators, which also attract the wild birds. No doubt you saw lots of wildlife during your stay, that's one of the attractions of the cottage being located in a quiet rural area away from urban noise. In future we will keep a closer eye on the green areas and give them a cut as appropriate. Many thanks Will Property Owner

Good selection of goodies left as a welcome pack. Will was very helpful and a fab host and couldn’t of done enough to help us have a good stay.

    Hi, Thank you for your feedback and I'm glad that you had enjoyed your stay. Usually the Wi-Fi is very good as we have fibre broadband, however there was some disruption during your stay as a result of the storms and bad weather that we experienced. Many thanks Will Property Owner

  • "Fantastic cottage in a beautiful setting."

    Definitely recommend if you are wanting to get away from it all. The track to the cottage is a little rough and ready but you need to accept this as you are living on a working farm. One thing that would help would be to have the farm name on both sides of the entrance as we got a bit lost trying to find the place other than that we could find no fault and if we ever stay in Cornwall again we would stay at Vine Cottage.

  • "We had a lovely short break at Vine Cottage trying to avoid the fireworks."

    We had a stress free holiday and so did our border collie. It was lovely, clean and cosy. The welcome pack was fabulous and totally unexpected being as we were only there 3 nights! We enjoyed the views across the fields, the cheeky squirrels and the peacocks. The Autumn weather was quite kind too overall, so thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The lanes can be daunting if you have a big car but the location more than made up for it! Would definitely consider staying again if in the area.

  • "A very well stocked and comfortable cottage in a lovely quiet location."

    Not far from Mevagissey or St Austell. There was a large ‘pot hole’ at the beginning of the track leading to the lane that led us to the cottage which needs attention especially if you have not got a 4 x4!

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday."

    The cottage was immaculately clean and well equipped. It was a very peaceful location. The peacocks kept our dog awake the first night which led to a restless night, but apart from that we didn't really notice them. The bed was comfortable and the shower was amazing! I loved the 'smart' bathroom mirror. We would love to return.

  • "The track to farm and cottage was very rutted and potholed."

    Future customers should be made aware of this.

    We do agree that the farm lane was bumpy and pot holed, however that is not typical but because of the extreme rain we had during November and December some areas of the surface had been washed away. We reassure that the lane will be repaired very shortly thus improving the access back to normal. Property Owner

  • "Perfect place to stay."

    First time in Cornwall and it really made us love it. Narrow roads every now and then shows driving skills. The cottage is perfect. The road to it is somewhat bumpy. The animal live is great to see and enjoy, directly off the veranda. There are some peacocks running around and they love to play with themselves in the reflection of your dark shiny car. Luckily the owner supplied a cover for your car to protect it.

    Finished to a high standard. Good quality beds and furnishings. Washing machine, dish washer, cooker, microwave, crockery, cutlery, bread, milk, tea, coffee, scones, Cornish butter, clotted cream & homemade jam all waiting for us. Even a vase of flowers on the table. Simply lovely. Beautiful views from the cottage- not a house in sight, just fields of sheep, cows and friendly peacocks. 2 pieces of advice for customers: 1) follow the directions given for getting there! We know the area pretty well and struggled to find it 2) take the drive slowly. It is perfectly situated for Heligan, Mevagissey and Goran Haven.

    We had not stayed in this area before so this was to be close to areas of Cornwall we did not know too well. We loved Vine Cottage but have decided we prefer the north coast which is where we have been going for the past 40+ years. The only criticism of Vine Cottage was minor in that there could have bee more crockery and cutlery. This was however a very minor complaint, easily rectified by the owners, but the overall impression was that there was little else that could be improved upon! Put this cottage on the north coast and we'd never go anywhere else!

Sticker 3 miles.

Perfectly located for touring the wonderful south coast of Cornwall, this delightful barn conversion is set in a rural location, a short drive from Mevagissey and 1.5 miles from the acclaimed Lost Gardens of Heligan.

Driving down the half-mile private lane to approach the property, which sits alongside the owner’s mixed livestock and arable farm, you will start to feel that you have left your busy life behind you.

Here your eyes are immediately taken to the outstanding views across rolling fields, peppered with 300 year-old oak trees and free-roaming peacocks, which help to paint the picture of this peaceful, quintessential countryside location.

Enter straight into the open plan living space with its well-equipped kitchen and comfortable sitting and dining areas.

Though the hallway are the two comfortable bedrooms, including one offering the flexibility of being either a king-size double or two singles beds on request.

The sitting area opens out to a large decked area, with comfortable seating and a barbecue, perfect for alfresco dining whilst taking in the superb rural views.

The two nearest villages, St Ewe and Sticker, both have excellent pubs acclaimed for their food, whilst the town of St. Austell with its host of amenities is only 6 miles away, plus pretty Porthpean and historic Charlestown are just a little further.

With the beautiful Lost Gardens of Heligan to be found within two miles, the Eden Project also only a short drive away and the many quaint Cornish fishing villages waiting to be explored, Vine Cottage offers a perfect base for a relaxing rural holiday.
