  • "Had a lovely relaxing stay at this lovely spotlessly clean cottage,surrounded by beautiful countryside views."

    Never stayed anywhere so well equipped. If you want peace and tranquility this is the place. Looking around outside it certainly looks as if Sarah has thought of everything, children's play area outside and a playroom. Roads a bit hairy, that's Cornwall.

    Thank you for the feedback and for staying with us. We are pleased you found it peaceful. Property Owner

    The cottage has everything you could possibly need and more. Sarah and Jem were really friendly and made us feel very welcome and right at home. A thoughtful gift of cookies, chocolates and flowers greeted us upon our arrival. Sarah graciously shared her love of art and allowed us to view her Studio and gallery. All in all, a lovely relaxing week in the nicest cottage we've stayed in. Thank you. X

    Being able to sit outside with a beer, taking in the view whilst the kids play in the play area was just perfect. The cottage itself was very clean and well equipped. The play barn a welcome distraction. The outside space a god send. Sarah the owner was so accommodating letting the kids help with the feeding and egg collecting. She was also more than happy to provide us with local recommendations.
