  • "Absolutely beautiful cottage."

    Best we have stayed in ever. Beautifully clean no smells of dogs what so ever. Brought both of our dogs who loved the massive enclosed garden. Loved the extras from the bath bombs to the little things like razors, toothbrushes, shaving gel, face wipes, soap,bubble bath, etc etc etc. all the things you might have forgotten. Bed lovely and comfortable. Lots of throws so your dogs can get on the sofas like they always do even though we always take our own. Could not have asked for more. Yes it is more expensive than others but you get what you pay for and we would not hesitate to stay here again.

  • "This was a really lovely place to stay."

    Maureen couldn’t have been kinder or more welcoming. The only things that weren’t absolutely perfect were the area round the hot tub, which needed jet washing, and the abundance of doggie toys, throws on the furniture and dog bowls etc which I felt could have been removed when dogs weren’t coming. But all in all a wonderful place to stay.

    Hi Paul - thank you so much for your feed back, we really appreciate it. The throws on the furniture are not for dogs they are for your comfort, we have separate throws for doggies. Sorry for all of the doggie accessorises being around we tend to leave these out all year unless specified in advance by the guests. The majority of our business comes from guests with furry friends. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay and hope to welcome you back again one day. Property Owner

  • "We had the most incredible week at Omalast and were sad to leave after such a relaxing and comfortable stay."

    Our dog enjoyed the freedom of the extensive garden and we could relax knowing that he couldn't escape! Being a short drive from almost everywhere in Cornwall was priceless. We ventured out each morning and then enjoyed the afternoons back at Omalast relaxing in the hot tub and watching the fox in the field in the distance, listening to all the birds and watching the rabbits enjoy the garden too. We enjoyed our stay so much we have already booked again for next summer! Thank you Maureen for making our stay so enjoyable, can't wait to return!

    The cottage was meticulously clean and every conceivable item you would need during a holiday were supplied. We had our small terrier with us and the large secure garden was perfect for her to roam safely around in. The hot tub was fab which we used practically every day, even in the rain ! The appliances and 2 tv’s made the cottage a home from home in the evenings. John and Maureen the owners keep the lawns and properties all in tip top condition with ample parking behind secure gates on the property. Best holiday let we have used to date, definitely recommend to any couple with or without pooches.

    Everything (and I mean everything!) Has been thought about and provided. Maureen is the perfect host and has made the cottage feel so homely. We loved the big fenced garden which was perfect for our dog to run around safely. We also loved the shared fields with even more open space for him. The hot tub was the hi-light and perfect for relaxing in during the evening. The location was excellent for exploring both the north and south coasts as it wasn't far from either. We had the BEST time - thank you Maureen and John!

Omalast had everything we expected, spotlessly clean, a comfortable spacious home from home with lots of thought put into the detail. A great base for exploring both coastlines and near to Truro. Each of the six properties is themed different which makes it a unique experience each time. Dogs are welcomed and have goodie bags, bowls and toys. Already planning third visit.

    The property was so lovely and clean, it smelt gorgeous you would not think that they accommodated for dogs. The dogs loved it and were so safe in the huge enclosed garden. Views amazing and the hot tub was so nice to relax in. Not hydrotherapy but nice enough. The only additional option would be to have a bar-b-q. Thank you so much for making our holiday so wonderful, we would love to come back again, this property is very popular and if you want it you need to book well in advance.

The huge garden was secure for our dog, so we were able to let him wander around knowing he couldn’t escape. Maureen the owner was always on hand and was so warm and welcoming. If you ever feel like you’ve forgotten to bring something, I would be surprised if it wasn’t already provided. Each room was fully equipped. The cottage was a perfect base to visit various places. As the cottages were all spaced out you definitely felt like you had your own privacy. Would highly recommend.

    Every effort has been made by Maureen to ensure it is a true home-from-home experience. Extremely comfortable and homely. Lovely bed; great sleeps! It is in quiet and peaceful location with easy access to all areas of Cornwall. There are two new properties being built on adjacent land within this complex. We were not warned on the Sykes website about this. We went for peace and quiet pre my wife's hip operation (limited mobility) so were using the facilities during the day. The noise was noticeable. Once this was brought to the attention of the owners the work was halted. They couldn't do enough to ensure we had the break we expected. Very dog friendly with 3 fields available as part of the complex and coastal walks close by. Will definitely return for any future breaks in Cornwall. Maureen deserves the highest praise for a little Cornish gem. Highly recommended.
