  • "Pond cottage is a beautiful property in a very quiet and peaceful location."

    Extremely well equipped, cannot think of anything not supplied. Large fridge and freezer which is unusual and really grateful for it. Large parking space right outside the door and a large garden to use if the weather allows. We do not have any negative comments.

  • "Absolutely gorgeous cottage, with everything you could need provided, except food of course!"

    Full size appliances, and the bonus of a dishwasher. Heating is efficient and reliable, and plentiful hot water. Beautifully decorated throughout, with accent colours make the whole place tranquil, cosy and very comfortable. The bed is divine, and the electric blanket a real luxury on chilly nights! We booked the cottage so my husband could walk sections of the South West Coastal Path, and I could carry on working, just dropping him off in the mornings, and picking him up at the end of his hike that day. Although very rural, the cottage is easily accessible by major roads and decent country lanes. The village of Stithians is a walkable distance or about a five minute drive, and the Seven Stars pub is excellent, with well kept beers, and good food. We didn’t need to ask our hosts James and Claire anything, but we knew they were on hand if needed. We highly recommend this wonderful cottage! 1000/10!!

    Clean, bright, superbly well equipped and supremely cosy for the two of us. We loved everything about the location and the wildlife including Harry the one eyed cat. We would definitely book again (and we are hugely selective in our choices) so meets all our needs and exceeded expectations.

  • "A lovely Cottage in a fabulous location, rural yet very close to "proper" roads and lots of areas of interest."

    Very peaceful, just lovely and everything has been thought of for the comfort of guests. The lovely cream tea set the scene and all was uphill from there on. Not only was the cottage lovely but the gardens too, with a stream running along the side. Harry the cat was a character, he used to call every morning. A lovely holiday, thank you all.

  • "It was great being welcomed on our arrival by the family and a cream tea, flowers etc ready to eat."

    Delicious. The cottage is in a beautiful setting and, even though we had a lot of rain during our stay, we still enjoyed it immensely. We had everything we could possibly need as Mr and Mrs Newman had thought to make th- e cottage 'home from home' and more besides. We would have liked to book June, which was available before we left home, but we are now trying to sort another date as we love it so much. Thank you Claire, James, Poppy and Oliver - it was great meeting you and look forward to staying with you again soon.

  • "We had a wonderful week in Pond Cottage."

    The cottage itself was extremely clean and well appointed. All furnishings were of a high standard as were the kitchen utensils. The bed was so so comfortable and together with the peaceful location ensured we had a good nights sleep. Our host and hostess were friendly and helpful. The location was very good as it was close to our favourite places on the Lizard. The grounds were well kept and provided a lovely place to sit or walk round the lake. We would highly recommend.
