  • "We loved everything about the cottage and it is great location for touring."

    Only draw back the access lane. Being nearly 80 I found it a bit daunting as no real passing places.

    Thank you for your feedback, and we are delighted that you loved staying at the cottage, thank you also for giving us a 100% score on the things that we can influence like the comfort, facilities and cleanliness of the cottage, in which we take great pride. I am sorry that you found the lane a bit daunting, in the 15 plus years we have had guests in our cottages we have only ever had one or two guests say that they were daunted by the lane. There are actually 5 passing places and as the lane is only used by a few people, it is unusual to meet anyone. It was a pleasure meeting you both and wish you well Property Owner

  • "A lovely cottage with plenty of space for 2 people, well maintained and a comfortable bed."

    A nice quiet location if you want some peace and quiet after exploring, 10min walk to the bus stop or short drive to Liskeard Station. We enjoyed our stay and would be happy to return.

    Thank you for taking the time to write such a lovely review - we enjoyed having you here and would love to welcome you back! Property Owner

  • "A lovely little barn conversion cottage truly “Cosy” The king size bed is extremely comfortable and the shower excellent."

    Plenty of hot water and an added bonus of a heated towel rail. Welcome gifts of milk, coffee and tea on arrival together with an excellent bottle of wine. Very friendly hosts. Cars have own parking space under cover and cottage has sitting area outside. Very quiet and train noise negligible.

    Although delightfully secluded, it was a great base to visit and explore the beauties of Cornwall. The owners were friendly and helpful, and Daisy and Maisie were available for scritches and purrs when wanted!

  • "We had a really lovely time at Cosy cottage."

    For the dutch "klein maar fijn"! Situated in a quiet surrounding, lots of stars at night, and everything you needed was there. Nice owners ready to help if you need it. Dobwalls is in a central part of Cornwall so lots of things to do and see. Warm weather? Trebarwith beach near Tintagel is the most beautiful beach we ever went to. Not so nice weather, visit Lanhydrock housen in Bodmin or the Royal Cornwall museum in Truro. Never a dull moment. Afterwards go back to Cosy cottage and relax :).

  • "Enjoyed a week in June at Cosy Cottage."

    But we did pick a wet week! Cottage is clean, warm, small but adequate. It was as we expected for the reasonable price and we were not disappointed. Lovely quite position but not miles from anywhere. Good local shop but I would not like to walk to. needed the car. Karen and Barry, (the owners) are a nice friendly couple who could not do enough for you. Karen even came out in a pouring rain storm to get the key as we left so we would not get wet. Thanks Karen.

  • "Fantastic relaxing place to stay."

    Read books and went out walking. Everything high quality. Superb shower. Property is down a narrow lane but not a problem. Bottle of wine and milk in fridge on arrival. Can just about hear trains. Pub and shop about 15 min stroll. Liskeard 8 min drive for morrisons, aldi , eating out etc. Plenty of places to visit and walks to do. Would definitely revisit if it wasn't 8 hours away.

  • "Owners were very friendly."

    There was everything in the cottage that you would need during your stay. The travelling instructions owners emailed were excellent and you couldn't possibly get lost. There is a short single track lane that you go down to arrive at the cottage. There was no noise from the railway nearby. I didn't give full marks for 'Comfort' as for us the settee was too low down and my husband was unable to get up from the seat so he brought in a directors chair we had in the car, however for other people this probably wouldn't be a problem. Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

  • "Lovely little cottage in a great location, ideal for exploring the many seaside towns ans villages."

    Had everything needed for a weeks stay and the garden area was peaceful and very pleasant. The cottage was really clean- the only thing I would mention is there were a few spider webs in the bedroom light shades- although it is expected to some extent: being in the countryside. I hate spiders and probably noticed more than most would- otherwise clean. Would recommend king size bed for comfort. Lovely friendly owners and although the cottage is close to the owners home there is a good degree of privacy- we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would have stayed longer had it not been booked up.

  • "We were very disappointed with this cottage, cosy isn’t the term we would use but like a little box."

    On entering you could smell the damp but tried to ignore it. The first evening went to bed and the springs of the mattress were sticking through so had to sleep on the top of quilt to get small amount of sleep. Karen the host gave us a topper after complaining but even that wasn’t enough as could still feel them. The kitchen part was awful, no work space so couldn’t prepare meal so ended up eating out while we were there. The living part was just a settee which again was very uncomfortable with a tv in front of you, very claustrophobic. We left after a few days as did not feel at all comfortable and could not put up with it any longer. Can not recommend this Cosy Cottage at all.

  • "Cosy Cottage, cosy by name and cosy by nature."

    A wonderful cottage, everything that you could ever expect and more. A beautiful garden to sit out and have meals (the weather was perfect) with the gentle trickle of water from the water ball fountain. A really idyllic place. Everything inside to suit your requirements, fridge, cooker, saucepans etc all looked new. The owner, Barry, was extremely helpful and again anything you wanted you just had to ask (not that I had any need to) only a few directions, but there was a manual in the cottage with a considerable lot of information in it. Thoroughly recommend this beautiful cottage.
