  • "Our stay was lovely, surpassed our expectations."

    Right in the middle of nature and we loved having some (very quiet) chickens in our backyard! Excellent service as well and very hospitable, greeting us with some fresh eggs, shortbread, and fudge. Could not recommend this enough! We look forward to seeing Cornwall again

  • "No hairdryer."

    No television reception,the aerial was broken and lying on the roof.we were told we could get Netflix. Tried the outside bath but there was no water in the tap.we don’t have a problem with dogs but from day three of our stay the three of them used the surround of our parking space as toilet area so foot placement was challenging.The price for the time of year was such that we find the issues mentioned above unacceptable, a great shame for what is a beautiful property.

  • "We had an interesting and memorable holiday."

    Nordstrom is a very quiet, attractive and convenient location. The Scandinavian style log cabin’s facilities were excellent and the owners were very friendly and welcoming. We visited many places, including Land’s End, St Michael’s Mount, Geevor Tin Mine and several towns and villages. The weather was a bit challenging, but that was no-one’s fault.

  • "Both the accommodation itself and the care provided by the owners was exceptional."

    The accommodation was cozy, tastefully decorated, well divided, very clean, everything necessary was available and the view of the large garden plot was great. The house is in a very quiet location, you can get everything you need a few miles away in St. Agnes. The owners had provided us with flowers, scones, clotted cream, jam and eggs from their own chickens which gave us a warm feeling of being welcome. All in all, this was the best vacation accommodation we have ever had.

    The property is spotless and well cared for, the garden is gorgeous with herbs by the path , lovely scent as you walk by. And a fantastic magnolia tree just flowering as we were there. Hosts couldn’t have been better just the right amount of friendliness and giving us privacy. I loved the young dogs playing and my husband was very taken with the chickens and ducks. A perfect holiday

    We were blessed with glorious weather so were able to take full advantage of sitting in the beautiful garden and bathing alfresco. The cabin had everything we needed and was very comfortable. Simon and Becky and their family were friendly and helpful and, despite being close neighbours with them, we were very private. We loved meeting Becky and Simon's three dogs, these girls were so entertaining!

    Beautiful, cosy and peaceful location. If you are lucky a cream tea awaits you on arrival! Hosts Rebecca and Simon on hand if you need help. You can enjoy the chickens and ducks that share the garden with you and you MUST have a go in the outside bath!! Being a central location means you have easy access to all of the wonderful Cornish coast. Cannot recommend this property highly enough.

    We also really appreciated the scones which were left for us on our arrival- they were exactly what we needed after a long drive. One thing to bear in mind is that Nordstrom is located up a country lane, which may get slippery to drive down during winter months. The house itself is beautiful and nicely finished, fantastic waterfall style shower, and a warming log burner. All in all a lovely stay and would definitely recommend Nordstrom to anyone looking for a few days' break away from the hustle and bustle.

  • "The lane we had to follow from the A3075 which led to Nordstrom was very narrow and did not seem to have passing places and so we were very concerned at meeting an oncoming vehicle, luckily this did not occur."

    This also meant we would not have wished to use this lane in the hours of darkness and so we always made sure we returned in daylight hours. We were very pleased with the property and we had a beautiful view from the lounge area of the garden where we could watch the beautiful poultry in an enclosed area happily feeding in an ideal environment.
