  • "It's been a lovely holiday, it's a cozy little cottage, close to lots of attractions, and dog friendly!"

    Our Hector had a lot of fun, he enjoyed running around in the garden, on the beach and visiting the Seal Sanctuary and the Castle. We had a relaxing time, very needed! The Cabin is very comfy and cozy, 2ith everything that you need for your week, very recommended.

  • "Pond Cabin is a delightful little home, snuggled into the Cornish countryside, a short drive from Falmouth, with plenty of local walks."

    The cabin is well insulated and has instant hot water. There are comfortable couches and all the comforts you would expect, including a range of kitchen equipment. If I could have one wish, it would be to have a more sophisticated stove/oven. The system is limited as you cannot have the oven and hob on at the same time, so cooking has to be well timed. That said, everything else was excellent and the lovely owners even provided a coffee machine and packet of delicious Cornish biscuits.

  • "We had a really lovely week staying in Pond Cabin."

    James and Claire have thought of everything - even down to flowers from the beautiful garden, coffee pods and delicious Cornish biscuits. Had I known that they would supply so many extras, I would not have taken up space in our luggage with things like kitchen rolls, toilet rolls, tea towels, cling film, tin foil, washing up liquid, soap, shower gel, shampoo...the list goes on and on. There was even a dog basket and dog towels for Jack the Labrador! So kind and so considerate. We send them a big thank you and wish them well for the summer season.

    Thank you for such lovely comments Property Owner

    Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback and we are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your break at Pond Cabin. The village pub is closed temporarily bu the locals are hopeful that new tenants will be found soon. In the meantime the Golden Lion at Stithians Lake is going strong and is a 10 minute drive or a 45 minute walk. Property Owner

  • "The sofas where uncomfortable."

    It was like sitting on the floor . Mattress on the bed you could feel the springs . The access to the pond cabin was over grown causing scratches to my car in the lane . . It is a nice place but needs updating . And the lane to it needs cleaning up over grown trees

    We were sorry to hear that Pond Cabin did not meet your expectations and we aim to provide a comfortable environment for our guests. In response to your points regarding the sofa and bed; the sofa is lower than some but we would not agree that it is like sitting on the floor and the mattress was commented upon favorably by other guests staying in the same month. Regarding the access lane this is a public highway with the verges under different ownerships and so is not something we can strim. Vegetation can encroach in the height of summer but we drive the lane everyday without scratching our cars. We take great care of the garden which is within our control. We hope that you still enjoyed your week in Cornwall. Property Owner

    The cabin itself was ideal for us, pretty well equipped, cosy and comfortable. Very convenient for both coasts, and away from the crowded tourist traps. A nice walk up the lane behind the hamlet to Stithians Lake, keep walking to the other side and the pub has a big, well spaced out garden.

  • "It was such a peaceful site perfect for my husband, myself and our dog."

    So central for all our trips, and lots to do and great places to eat nearby. Unfortunately the owners were away the week we were there and on the info left in the cabin they said as there was no washing machine they would do a wash for us, as they were not there we couldn't take this offer up. Luckily the weather was great and we were able to make do with the clothes ect we took. It would have been very different had it been bad cold and wet weather and maybe this needs to be looked at if they are away again when the cabin is booked. We are not complaining only making a suggestion. The scones jam and cream on our arrival was a wonderful surprise and really appreciated. Hopefully we can go back sometime.

    15 minute drive to a very nice dog friendly beach and 10minutes from the centre of Falmouth. The cabin was cosy and facilities were adequate, some of the cabins features I feel are in need of an update. An appropriate height BBQ would've been handy instead of cooking from the floor and the mattress was very uncomfortable. Overall we were very happy though the cream tea upon arrival was a very nice touch.

A car is a must for getting around Cornwall and this cabin is situated perfectly for anywhere you might want to visit. Ideal garden for children and dogs and we had a very friendly visitor in Harry the cat! The hosts are great, very helpful if you need anything but you have total privacy otherwise.
