“Great little house in Penryn - very good value”

Great location in Penryn. Although the street is too narrow for cars there is a free car park a few hundred yards away which usually had a space available. House is clean with a modern kitchen and lots of quirky / high quality sculptures and pictures around - it really feels like a home. The metal spiral staircase is a fantastic feature and the bathroom shower is good. The bedroom is cosy and comfortable although the bed is very soft. Our teenager was on the sofabed which was quick to setup and comfortable. The property has very good WiFi and two televisions plus Sky. Simon made us very welcome by providing clear instructions and lots of food plus a bottle of champagne to get us started.

“Lived up to expectations! ”

... which were high given reviews by others! An extremely comfortable home (this is not your typical holiday rental) with bags of character and all the modern conveniences you need. Welcome package was really thoughtful and fresh flowers in every room a lovely touch. Location was great - bakery, deli and newsagent a short stroll away and great base to explore this part of Cornwall. Thanks to the owner for sharing this gem.

“Fabulous little place ”

We have just spent a great week in this lovely cottage and could not recommend it highly enough. It contains a mixture of old and modern but it's beautiful decorated inside with a lovely private courtyard outside. It felt like our very own home all week we never needed for anything because it had everything. We were very sad to leave yesterday. Hopefully one day we will return. Thank you Simon for the welcome gifts & beautiful flowers.

“Wow! What a find!!”

Only just arrived after 8 hour journey from the midlands. This place is just fabulous we have a week to enjoy it but there is no doubt we will!! I have never stopped in a strangers home before and this is just what it feels like that we are stopping in someones very special home. There is almost to much good to say about this place and part of me wants to keep it a secret but it would not be fair on the hosts. So whats so good? A personalized welcome card, flowers and a bottle of fizz for a start, then open the fridge which has bacon, eggs, milk, orange juice, Cornish butter and freshly baked bread! This home is full of lovely artwork, smeg appliances etc. But you cant write a review without saying what impeccable taste the owners have its just lush!! Think they might have a problem getting rid of us!!! Just love it!! :o)

A hidden gem. The decor in this cottage is truly inspiring. Tastefully furnished, with an eclectic
Style. The welcome goodies were more than expected and very much appreciated. Plenty of games etc for the grown ups and kids to do indoors if the weather is bad. Perfect.
