  • "Please note: we were very kindly upgraded to Omalast cottage, so anything specifically mentioned about the cottage is that one, but I would say that any of the cottages would be a dream to stay in."

    We had the best week ever over new years at Nantrisack holiday cottages, Maureen is amazing, super friendly, welcoming, really kind. Our cottage was incredibly well equipped and truly dog friendly. It felt like a home away from home and we couldnt have asked for anything more, the hot tub, the furnishings, the doggy treats and toys, the cheeseboard and port. It is the best cottage we have ever stayed in through Sykes and we will definitely be back. Thank you Maureen for making our start to 2024 so brilliant!

    We were greeted by Maureen on arrival and she was friendly and helpful with the local area. The cottage itself was super clean and comfortable. The hound was well catered for with treats on arrival - with plenty of running space on site. Overall a fantastic stay. We look forward to returning for another break.

    The place and surroundings are so lovely. As dog owners we are always worried about somewhere secure for them to run and enjoy - this place is wonderful as they have worked so hard to make everything secure. The little touches for all of us made our time special and we felt very safe and relaxed. We will be back.

    It was perfect, and had everything we needed, and more. I loved all the quirky colourful things in the cottage, and the lights in the gardens that light up at night are truly beautiful, I’m even copying them for myself. The hot tub was so relaxing, and kept lovely and clean. A perfect place to wind down and chill out. Maureen and John work so hard to keep everything spick and span, and the grounds neat and tidy. they’re a great team. We will definitely be going back. Absolutely loved it!

  • "Great place to stay."

    Loved it. Ideal for a couple and a dog :). Hot tub was well used and a great assett. Plenty of towels both for adults and dogs! Nice clean cottage to stay which was central for lots of Cornwall's attractions. Everything we needed was supplied from milk to cleaning clothes and bin bags. We loved the organised recycling, so many places we've stayed don't address this, its like its too much bother for them but not here! Owner was very understanding when our dog was poorly.

  • "We have had a very good week in Phoenix cottage."

    The balcony is much bigger than on the photos and you also have a lovely garden a few steps away from the cottage. This garden also leads into the fields that you are able to let your dog have a good run around and is all very secure. Albert our dog has had a wonderful time. The cottage is perfect and very comfortable and spotless. Maureen and John are very helpful and super friendly. There local knowledge of places to visit is such a help. Would not hesitate to book any of the six cottages they are all dog friendly and look amazing. It’s lovely to stay somewhere with our dog that is so well kept and everything is thought out so well so we all get the holiday we should have . Thank you both we will return. Jennifer , Peter and Albert.

    In the surrounding charming idyllic Cornish countryside with a relaxing hot tub and lots of home comforts to help unwind. Perfect for dogs to also enjoy with a secure garden and lots of open spaces. A kind welcome on arrival from Maureen with lots of helpful advice on the area. A special touch with the options of a Cornish cream tea or Cornish pasties are facilitated if you so wish.

    I was really impressed with the little touches, from toiletries to chocolates and wine, dog treat bags and the beautiful cornish pasties. Fantastic base only 15 to 20 minutes drive to beaches and shops.The cottages and the surrounding area is beautiful and peaceful. After a day at the beach and walking the dogs, there is nothing nicer than going back to the cottage and relaxing in the hot tub. Will definitely be returning sooner rather than later.

  • "I don’t really know where to begin ."

    ... what an absolutely fabulous place. Having been provided with some directions (as the sat nav doesn’t take you to the right place), we arrived and were immediately met by the owner - whom called in to say a very friendly hello and ensured we had what we needed - and made sure we knew to contact her if we needed anything. She showed us our own garden and also the huge field through the garden which was for the dog to play in! This really was doggy paradise. To say they are welcoming of dogs is an understatement. Inside the spotless property it was kitted out to a high standard and was so very inviting. There was even a chest of goodies (toys / treats / poo bags) for the dog! The rooms are large, airy and fresh - and the property contains everything you could possibly need for your stay. The hot tub was well used by us too - a lovely way to round off the days. The property is one of six on the owners land - with each one being fully self contained with its own garden etc. I seriously cannot explain how amazing this place is - other than to say it’s well situated - far enough from beaches to not be caught in the mad traffic which I assume hits Cornwall in the summer, but close enough to have everything you need to access on your doorstep - beaches are a short drive, but the tranquility of this property was ideal for our needs. Suffice to say I will be back to either this property or one of the others on this site in the future. It’s the nicest self contained place I’ve ever stayed - and the owners are amazing.

  • "We had a wonderful stay at Phoenix Cottage last week."

    We were very grateful that restrictions lifted in time that we could keep our booking. The cottage is gorgeous - the photos just don’t do it justice. There’s so much space and it is kitted out with everything you could possibly want or need. The hot tub is wonderful any time of day and is always kept at the perfect temperature so there’s no waiting. LED lights out by the hot tub make for a lovely evening dip too. Maureen was so helpful in providing instructions for teaching the property and was available on a mobile number throughout our stay. As we left we were already eyeing up the larger cottages to return with friends at some point. Thank you for a restful break in a great cottage. P.S. the take away fish and chip shop in the next village is the best I’ve ever tasted - Kelhams? Book online to avoid disappointment though!
