  • "On arrival we had some lovely scones with clotted cream which when down a treat after our long drive and some tea and milk was such a lovely gesture."

    The cottage was absolutely stunning was like home to home cosy and isolated in beautiful rural surroundings with animals ( goats, horses and cows). The cottage had absolutely everything we needed and nothing was too much trouble the owner was amazing and to hand if we needed any advice or help. So much hidden gems on the farm table tennis, bar, darts and much more our favourite was the hottub which was relaxing at the end of the day. Some beautiful walks near by we went to the zoo in Newquay there was more animals on the farm than there so don’t bother!! The beds where so comfy which is a massive bonus too very clean and tidy and would definitely return thank you for such a beautiful stay would highly highly recommend.

    The accommodation was clean and tidy. The rooms were spacious with comfy beds and the kitchen was equipped with everything we needed. We enjoyed a lovely walk around the reservoir which backs onto the cottages. It was a great base to explore Cornwall from with lots of places for dinner and days out nearby. We will return next time we are in Cornwall - thank you for a lovely stay

  • "Lovely location, beds were extremely comfy."

    Locks on doors could do with some attention, and blinds had mould on them in the bedroom. The accommodation was lovely and quiet, however the table tennis area could do with a little clear up. Wifi code on arrival would be great also. Many thanks overall we has enjoyable stay

  • "Location was brilliant with so much to do in the area."

    Peaceful, clean and things for the children to do. (Pool, darts and animals). The property could do with some windows that you can open, because it got warm in the property during the night. And could do with instructions on how to use the oven/hob. We would visit again, owners where friendly.

  • "Lovely owners, very kind and helpful."

    Our girl loved being able to come up close to the animals as well and the trampoline in the garden. The kitchen was gorgeous, beds comfortable and you can see a lot of thought went into making it a nice experience for all those staying. The only thing I would say is the walls and doors were a bit tired and could do with a bit of fresh paint/new blinds as there was a bit of mould at points... And the micro pub could do with being checked a bit more often as there was empty bottles and rubbish on the table. Still, we really enjoyed our experience and we're very glad we were able to stay there and enjoy the beautiful surroundings.

  • "The property was set in a beautiful location, our little one adored the horse, pony, cows, chickens & goats and the view over Argal reservoir was idillic."

    The accommodation was well presented, however there were a few general maintenance things we felt needed addressing, such as plugs pulled away from the walls, drawer handles broken, one of the bedside table doors in the twin room was left off, extractor fan needed a good clean in the bathroom, along with some mould build up in the shower; the main bedroom blinds were quite bad for mould too. However with these issues rectified we felt it would be a really lovely place to stay, with that overall the quality of the furniture and facilities to a very high standard, the addition of a cream tea+milk was a nice touch after a really long journey with a toddler in tow, beds were very comfy and we all slept very well each night! The animals were really friendly on the farm - a great factor for kids! Additional on site free bits were a nice bonus - trampoline, pool table etc. Good location - most beaches less than an hour away, local beach 10 mins away was really beautiful too!

    Thank you for your lovely feedback and we are sorry to hear of the issues you found. We had a new cleaning team start that week and unfortunately many things were missed. I personally cleaned Dexter this Friday and noted the below items which have now been rectified. A meeting was held with cleaning team and new supervisor appointed to ensure this doesn't happen again. Thank you again for the feedback Property Owner

    Excellent facilities, we loved family games of tennis followed by a dip in the hot tub, evenings were finished with games of pool. The accommodation was clean and spacious with delicious local jam to make a Cornish cream tea. Excellent location for exploring. Beautiful views. Extremely accommodating of our dog who loved the dog field and made friends with the resident goats. Xx A perfect holiday spot and one we will definitely return to.

    The apartment was modern, finished to a high spec and clean...and after a very long drive, the gift basket of bread, milk, butter etc were greatly received. The farm has horses, goats, Dexter cows and two dogs, as well as trampoline and zip wire, so the kids always have something to do when you are on site. Ian, Michaela and Louis (who live on the farm) are very friendly, welcoming and always on hand to help or give guidance or what to do in the area. I honestly can say, as a family we could not have hoped for a better time or place to stay. We are most definitely going to be booking again next year.

    The 'welcome' pack of local bread, cornish butter, tea, coffee, milk, and eggs was very .... welcoming :) - far exceeded that we've had before. The farm/stables/family environment is very relaxing and it's clear a lot of effort has been put into converting and maintaining the properties. The farm is very conveniently situated for the beautiful cornish coast, and if you don't want to drive there's a lakeside walk nearby.

About the location


Falmouth 7.1 miles; Truro 13.4 miles.

A charmingly picturesque country village with a few shops, a pub and a lovely church, set among green rolling meadows and wooded valleys leading down to the beautiful Helford river, just 3 miles away. Famous for its mild climate, this quieter part of Cornwall has the outstanding gardens of Trebah, Penjerrick, Glendurgan and Carwinion all within 4 miles. For nature lovers and those who enjoy boats, the misty reaches of the Helford river meander upstream to Gweek, where the world renowned Seal Sanctuary looks after the region’s many abandoned and injured seals. Falmouth, with its narrow streets, natural harbour and National Maritime Museum is just 20 minutes by car, while Flambards theme park (8 miles) and Argal Lake with its water sports attractions make great days out. The nearby beautiful Lizard Peninsula, with its outstanding beaches and quaint fishing villages dotting the rocky coastline, has the benefit of outstanding scenery, tranquillity and some great walks.
