So lovely that I don't want to let other people know about it!
The title says it all really but when you add the friendliness of the village, the lovely cream tea welcome and the great food available within minutes of the front door then you have a winning combination.
Housekeeper Lucy's care and attention to detail means nothing to be disappointed about and owner Jane has created a stylish and comfortable home from home.
We especially loved 'our' beautiful courtyard garden - we breakfasted outside every day and star gazed late into the evening.
The cottage was an excellent base for exploring the length and breadth of Cornwall. Wifi access made planning trips quick and easy.

Stayed at waterlily cottage last week and it is amazing! The cottage itself is beautiful and Lucy and the owner had thought of everthing to make our stay comfortable. First trip advisor review I've ever written but just had to say how pleased we were. Location perfect too as short drives to lost gardens, eden etc.
We stayed last year and wouldn't want to stay anywhere else in Cornwall now. Has everything you need and more, my daughter says it's like staying in a dolls house as everything is so pretty! We love "living in a village", no other tourists around that we would spot. Playground is five minutes walk and well equipped, farm shop has amazing lamb and bacon, the Nisa had everything you might forget to buy, and the pub was a welcome retreat at the end of the day. For families we enjoyed shops in Falmouth, Springfields Pony Farm, Pendennis Castle and St Ives. Thank you Lucy for looking after us so well x
We have had a great week here at Waterlily Cottage. We have stayed in Probus several times now and this is by far the best we
have stayed in. Very comfortable and clean. Many thanks for the welcome Lucy and for the cream teas. Best wishes. Paul and
Waterlily cottage is perfectly located to explore the area which offers so many pretty spots to discover. You can also very easily go to Truro for shopping.
The cottage is very comfortable and decorated with very refined taste in soft relaxing colours, but we found the lounge was a little too dark and maybe needed brighter lights. We found loads of touristic information and books that we found very useful to avoid missing interesting places to visit.
The village was very friendly and quiet.
We really appreciated the Cornish cream teas waiting for us on the day of our arrival (a very good way of making us, French people, discover one of the most famous Cornish specialities!)
I wish I could have met Lucy as she sounded so nice on the phone!
A lot of little thoughtful details made us feel at home immediately. We will surely recommend Waterlily Cottage to all our England-loving French friends.
