  • "We found The Pond Cottage to be beautifully presented, comfortable, and well equipped in all areas ."

    Worthy of particular mention are the king sized bed, cosy sofas, superb walk-in power shower, and excellent wood burning stove. Perhaps the dining facility is a little cramped , even for just two people , and light switching when accessing the w.c. from the bedroom at night whilst safely negotiating the step at the bedroom door is somewhat hazardous .This lovely stone built cottage is surrounded by delightfully peaceful sub tropical planted gardens , quite inspirational. Many thanks , Hazel and Keith

  • "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!!

    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.
