  • "Lovely cottage, beautiful surroundings."

    Little tricky to find at first! Close to a shop and petrol station which is very convenient. Games room is good for rainy days. Only down side is no Wi-Fi but that’s not a big thing and we really loved our stay.

    It is located at a very quite area so very relaxing at the evening after having fun. The owners have promptly replied to our questions and request. There is no wifi but there are plenty of DVD in the cottage so it was a good chance to get away from smartphone.

  • "Cottage is lovely , compact , but comfortable with everything you could need."

    Location perfect, within easy reach of many picturesque villages and attractions. We enjoyed sitting in the peaceful front garden with a glass of wine in the evening sunshine. Small tip - the bedding is extremely hot, with a winter weight duvet . We ended up removing this from its cover and using a blanket we brought with us.

  • "This holiday let is exactly as described."

    It’s in a beautiful, peaceful setting and kept spotlessly clean. The country lane that leads you to the cottage is very narrow and we had near misses twice by speeding locals coming round bends, but seeing chipmunks playing in the road soon gets you to relax again. This cottage has only 2 drawbacks for me.... it is not suitable for wheelchair bound people as there are 3 steps that lead you up to the front door and no hand rail to aid you. Otherwise it was perfect for us and just what the doctor ordered. The owner even left us milk and a bottle of wine. We sat in the beautiful surroundings and drank the wine before we unpacked. Bliss.

    Very peaceful with lovely gardens. Plenty of footpaths for walkers and close to many coastal resorts.

  • "Old stable was in a lovely quite place."

    The former farm was wonderful. There was everything we had expected. Nevertheless the appartment was smaller than expected but this was comensated by the wonderful environment. We could watch King fishers, rats, birds and weasels playing. Near the house were lovely flowers like roses and hydrangeas, even there was an eucalyptus tree. We could walk a lot. Bodminmoor was quite near. Beside the place there was a pond with wonderful flowers, birds and fruit trees. We called it the"magic place" because you could nearly feel the presence of fairies. Thanks a lot. We had really a good time there.

  • "Never booked a cottage before so although the cottage looked nice on the web site we were still apprehensive after a long drive what we would find however when we opened the door the cottage more than matched the information provided on the web site !"

    ! - it was lovely. The bottle of wine and milk left for us when we arrived was again a nice touch !! The location was fine too Bude was a twenty minute drive away it was also handy for the locations of Port Isaac - Tintagil & Bos-castle all only a 15 minute drive away. The village of Camelford was also nice with a nice pub call the Masons to eat at as well as a very good Fish n Chip shop called peckish !!
