    This was our second trip, the accommodation is perfect, all the little touches are amazing. We couldn’t have wished for a better or more relaxing stay and are looking forward to returning next year.

  • "I don't really know where to start with Bear Cottage."

    We have stayed in several UK holiday cottages and this was definitely the best. The cottage is so beautiful decorated and with so many adorable bear accessories. Bed is the comfiest I've ever slept in. Hard to say if I preferred soaking in the free standing bath or the hot tub. The best for dogs, with so many welcoming touches including toys, biscuits and a secure dog walking field. The absolute perfect base for exploring Cornwall. Highly recommend.

  • "This was our third time to Nantrisack and our first stay in Bear Cottage."

    The cottage itself is immaculate. There was no dust and considering the cottages are animal friendly we did not even spot a hair. Maureen was fantastic as always, checking in with us on the first day and showing us how the log burner worked. The bed is just amazing. A King size which gave us perfect sleep. The massage chair we were not expecting but I used this each evening and would highly recommend. As well as the cream tea, Maureen left a bottle of wine which went down a treat. The hot tub is good quality and you are not overlooked at all in the garden. Nantrisack itself is an ideal location for exploring Cornwall, everything is just a short drive away. We were not sure what a winter trio to Cornwall was going to be like but we were definitely not disappointed. We are already planning our 4th trip to Nantrisack, the question is returning to a previous cottage or trying another new one! Bear cottage is a contender again!

    Wonderful holiday cottage. Maureen & John (owners) have literally thought of every last tiny little detail which makes it home from home!...from spare brand new tooth brushes in the bathroom, to pens and paper in the kitchen, just every little thing has been thought of. The cottage is absolutely spotless - such a high standard, and so comfortable. The hot tub is incredible, all you can see is Bear Cottage and fields and fields with the patio doors straight in to the bedroom. The cottage is so private with nothing overlooking. We actually booked a week here but left mid-week for 2 days to go and get married, and when we got back the cottage had been decorated with 'Mr & Mrs / just married' bunting, celebration balloons and champagne. We took some wedding cake to Maureen & John and they very kindly invited us in to their home for a cuppa - it felt like we'd been friends for years - so very welcoming!! Location - not far from Truro, but in the little information book there is local take away information / nearest supermarkets etc. Thank you for everything - we will definitely be booking again.
