  • "I would not recommend that anyone take their pets to this cottage!"

    I took my baby cockatiel - she miraculously escaped her locked cage, and through the closed windows and locked door! The owners wife entered the cottage whilst we were out, without consent.

    To anyone reading this review I am as it states in the property description a livestock farmer. I have just come out of a 10 month period of lockdown due to bird flu. My birds and livelihood like all farmers has been hit. I would never have let anyone bring a bird following the suffering of my own birds. However, I was promised the bird was in a cage and did not fly. I only entered the property to (A) adjust the heating, which was requested by the guest and I was accompanied by my husband (B) After I had called with my concern about the bird, I said I would go and check for the guest the bird was safe. At no time have I ever entered any of our properties without checking first with the guests. The property is not air tight, as it legally requires vents, fans and ventilation bricks all installed for the safety of our guests. I respect the kindness of the Guest for not marking down a beautiful property but I do take issue with the suggestion I entered the property without speaking to them first. Property Owner

    ) . The garden was fabulous with views for miles as well as some of the farm animals - two adorable sheep, Boris the pig and 2 sows. Monica and Ian made us feel very welcome and brought round one of the piglets born only recently - there is a nice homely feel about this place. The nearest pub The Stumble Inn is about 1.5 miles and along the main road and serves food Wed/Thu/Fri/Sat evenings and Sunday lunchtimes - the food and drink is excellent. The beach at Widemouth bay is only 20 minutes away and the south beach allows dogs all year round.

    The kitchen was well equipped with everything you need. Bed really comfortable with high quality linen, towels also high quality. The views were fantastic from the back garden, lovely place to sit and watch the birds on the feeders, Jay, Woodpecker and various others we also really enjoyed seeing the animals in the adjoining fields. Ian and Monica were lovely people, always on hand but not intrusive. The homemade scones and gluten free bread along with the other goodies was a very thoughtful and delicious treat on our arrival. The cottage is an ideal base to explore Cornwall and parts of Devon. Bude, Clovelly, Tintagel, Launceston Castle and steam train, Bodmin steam train and jail along with various National Trust and English Heritage properties. We will definitely be back. Thank you Ian and Monica (and Colin) for a lovely stay we thoroughly enjoyed it.

  • "This is an excellent place to stay the only criticism I have is your facility lists the Stumble Inn to be a mile away this is nowhere correct and with a main road with no footpaths this is not somewhere that people can walk to."

    Thank you for your review. It was lovely yo meet you. Sadly we do not have any footpaths, with livestock including bulls on our land and our neighbours, it is too big a risk. It is slightly over 1 mile ( 0.9 miles as the crow flies) The walk does involve the B3254 for the first section which is why we do not mention it is walkable, although several previous guests have walked over and staggered back.

  • "We had a lovely stay in the cottage with our dogs."

    The location was beautiful and the farm noises and sights were a welcome surprise! We found the bed very comfy and roomy contrary to some other reviews and liked the spacious bathroom. One thing we’d like to mention is the garden and dog situation. Unfortunately nowhere in the holiday description did it mention that our outdoor garden area connects to another one next door. Although fenced this fence is only 4 foot ish tall and the dogs can easily stick their noses through the gaps in the fence as it isn’t solid and can put paws up on top of the fence to become face to face. In fact our neighbours dogs jumped the fence into our garden to then get through to the sheep field on the other side and chase sheep on one occasion! The other thing to mention is the other side of our garden was directly next to a field/ pen with sheep in. This wasn’t an issue for our dogs as they’re well trained and didn’t pay much attention to the sheep but some dogs (like the ones the other side of us) struggled with this as again our dogs could have literally put their noses through the fence and sniffed/ touched the sheep the other side. For a reactive dog or even dog selective this could be a stressful garden situation. We had 3 dogs with us and next door had 5! We had to be very aware whenever next doors dogs were out as 2 of ours didn’t like the fact next doors could jump up on the fence to look into our garden so we couldn’t have them out at the same time. It just depends how you feel your dogs would cope. It didn’t ruin the stay but we had to be careful each time and it wasn’t as relaxing as it could have been just sitting out in the garden admiring the lovely views. I wanted to mention this as it doesn’t seem to in the holiday description. Overall a lovely time away and we’d likely go back.

    Beth, Thank you for your feedback, abd I am pleased you wish to return. It would be lovely to see you and the dogs again..I would like to take this opportunity to address your concerns, In the cottage description it clearly states there is an adjoining property, and the photo of the patio furniture with my Black Labrador shows the proximity of that property. We invested considerable in a natural looking picket fencing , to enable people to enjoy the views, and see the livestock. We do advertise we are a working farm, with livestock and that farm animals would be part of the daiky encounter, There is the opportunity to interaction between the properties, however we have installed a solid high gate and a section of solid high fencing to providing privacy to both properties to sit outside. Ian and I feel one of the beautiful aspects is having that closeness to nature, the animals and uninterrupted stunning views. Property Owner

  • "A lovely break away over Easter, which was made even more special thanks to Ian & Monica's warmth and hospitality!"

    Everything has been thought of to make the cottage a 'home from home'. Highly recommend to couples (and their dogs!), looking for a relaxing break. The views from the garden do not disappoint (even with the pigs in your eyeline!) and the house itself is very cosy. We were greeted with home made scones, with cream and jam, a pint of milk, bread, butter and a bottle of wine which was a lovely welcome. Being on a working farm, we were surrounded by animals, which was a nice change to the hustle & bustle of town! Really do recommend, and would not hesitate to come back with family and friends again in the near future. A few recommendations of what we fit in over our 3 nights - 2 different beaches, Bude & Widemouth (by car), Tamar Lakes (by car, highly recommend if you are looking for up to 2 hours of walking, followed by a cream tea at the café on site), and walked to the 'Stumble Inn' for a Sunday Roast (approximately 40 minutes road walking).

    Very well equipped however, the mattress is very uncomfortable. Also, a few rugs would make it much warmer. Pretty cold when heating is off. Brilliant for sockets,however, there is nowhere to put your phone, laptop fir charging.

    Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay at our cottage. I am sorry you found the mattress uncomfortable we chose to renovate the properties to the very highest standard selecting TEMPUR mattresses, to accommodate everyone we chosa medium firmness. Ian and I regularly stay in the properties to ensure everything is perfect, most of our guests ask to take the mattresses home, as they have the best of nights sleep. With regard to the heating in our welcome pack we explain we have set the heating to come on in the morning and evening at a temperature we feel is comfortable. We also state if you would like this adjusted for your stay to let us know. There is also an electric fire in the lounge to allow you to add heat. On arrival you informed us you had 7 additional family members joining you for Sunday lunch, we hope the extra plates, children’s plates and cutlery we lent you helped make the family roast in a one bed cottage memorable.

    The additional little touches left of bread, cream tea, butter, milk, wine were so thoughtful and appreciated. However, when booking I knew it was semi detached, what I didn't know about was the connecting door between the cottage and the farmhouse which had no sound proofing what so ever and we could here everything. Saturday and Sunday was slightly quieter because the family were in the garden. Following Monday nights noise we decided we were not prepared to put up with further evenings like that and decided to leave on Tuesday evening thereby cutting our holiday short by two nights. I will admit to not complaining to the owners about Monday evening as I don't really see what they could have done to avoid repeat incidents. I would strongly suggest that the issue with the connecting door is fully included within the cottage spec so anyone booking in our circumstances will be fully aware that there is no sound proofing between the two properties connecting door.

    We had a fabulous time, such a lovely cottage, more spacious than we expected for a one bedroom property. Very clean and well equipped. The utility room such a bonus, roomy kitchen diner and very comfortable bed, felt like home from home. Fantastic views over the countryside from the enclosed garden. The owners were very welcoming, it was great to see round the farm, hold piglets and feed the calves. Looking forward to a return visit!

    It was spotless and the fixtures and fittings were high end. Monica and Ian give such a warm welcome, and the welcome pack was gratefully received too! It’s a busy working farm, and they took time out to introduce us to their farm animals - the baby piglets and calves were adorable. We definitely recommend this cottage.

    It is bigger than we expected from the photographs. very well equipped, loads of lovely towels for bathing and very comfortable. The views from the kitchen window is fantastic on a clear day. unfortunately for us the weather was not too kind lots of rain but when the sun shone it was beautiful. It was lovely to hear the geese and ducks chattering in the morning. Because of the weather we were not able to go round the farm but we did see the pigs roaming at the bottom of our garden. A lovely relaxing place and Monica was charming a lovely lady very busy but always willing to chat. I would recommend this cottage and we would love to go again.

    Monica and Ian have created a very special place full of peace and tranquility, where you can sit on the patio and listen to the sounds of the farm and the chirrup of circling buzzards overhead. It is also a good place from which to explore; either the moors of Bodmin and Dartmoor, or the north coast of Cornwall and Devon. All are within an easy drive. To sum up, Lower West Curry Cottage is a Cornish gem!

  • "This place is just lovely, and very well renovated."

    The owners have clearly put a lot of thought into everything in the cottage, a very comfortable mattress, nice sized shower cubicle, the kitchen has everything you need, nice new comfortable sofa and chair in the sitting room and a decent sized TV for watching a film after dinner. If I had to add one or two criticisms, it would be the adjoining door between this cottage and the larger family one next door, if you have a noisy family in the cottage next door (and unfortunately we did) it can get quite noisy whilst sat in the sitting room. Also the fence in the garden could be a little more secure, we were a little unsure if we should let our dog in the garden whilst off her lead, it would be very easy for them to get under the fence and in with the sheep, possibly finding a way to secure the bottom of the fence so the dogs can’t get in with the livestock would be good... but having said that it was better than a lot of cottages we have stayed in that claim to have a “secure garden”. The bread, milk, eggs and scones were a lovely touch. The views from the garden is just stunning. This is a great location for exploring both Devon and Cornwall. We would definitely recommend staying here and we will be booking to come back again!

    Thank you for your comments. Since the Covid situation, we have bricked up the adjoining door in line with shared spaces, and the insulation previously there has been enhanced. The fencing is livestock fencing to keep our animals out of the gardens, however if a dog wants to they can escape from almost anywhere. we have taken on board your comments and improved the fencing.

Unfortunately we did not get to have a look around the Farm as the weather was not so good, we did meet the Farm Dogs and the little 14 week old Black Labrador was so cute and we could not believe how well trained he was at that age, we have a 6 month old Golden Retriever and she is still work in progress!

Monica's welcome pack of home produce went down a treat, as did the complimentary bottle of wine. We think that the layout of the cottage and adjacent farmhouse (also for let) with an adjoining door would be great for larger groups, we never heard a squeak out of our neighbours on our stay, and the view over to the northern hills of Bodmin Moor were something to admire, especially with snow on them. Seven miles from Launceston deep in the Cornish countryside the area is so peaceful and relaxing. We would go back again without hesitation. We wish Monica and Ian much success with their new venture. Jill & John G
