“A lovely cottage and lovely host family”

We had a great week at the Moohey Cottage in mid August. The cottage is a lovely spacious and open living space and we couldn't have been more relaxed there. There are a couple of Restaraunts/pub and a village shop around 15 to 20min walk away but other than that you definitely need a car to get around. Our favourite places to visit were, Polpero, Fowey and the beautiful sandy beaches of Whitsand Bay that look like they belong to a different continent !!! Another favourite place was the View Restaurant, appropriately named when you see its location high above Whitsand Bay. The food there is 2nd to none and that includes Raymond Blanc's Le Manoir aux Quat'Saisons. As for the hosts of the Moohey, you couldn't ask to meet a nicer family, Mary, Pat and their 3 boys, Gawen, Finn & Euan could not have made us feel more welcome and who can not do enough to help, should you need it.

A great place to chill out and relax.

“Warm, welcoming & informative super host family”
Reviewed 18 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Just had a week at the Moohey. Mary & Pat are BRILLIANT hosts as are their three boys who played with our 3yr old George and entertained him so well he never wanted to go anywhere else but downstairs to join the boys.
Mary & Pat are so helpful with ideas of what to do and go and see, but also not overwhelming, they just seem to be there when you need them.
Stunning conversion of the Barn, clearly carried out by Pat & Mary with much thought in terms of layout, and passion for their home.
We have normally stayed in properties in North Cornwall much nearer to the beach, but found the Moohey location to work really well, being able to wander around their paddock was great, fantastic view from the top corner out to sea, we simply ran out of time and only scratched the surface of what was to be seen / done in the surrounding area.
In summary we have so enjoyed our week staying in a lovely barn, made complete by such great hosts, and for that reason alone I am sure we will return.

“Fabulous accommodation, location and hospitality.”
Reviewed 15 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We loved the look of the moohey and weren't disappointed on our arrival. The accommodation was fabulous, very spacious, beautifully decorated and spotless. The space both inside and out was fabulous for a group of 6 including 4 teenagers. This is a beautiful area and there is a lot to explore but would recommend the use of a car. There are two local beaches and more extensive ones a short drive away. The hosts were exceptionally helpful and full of advice to help make our holiday a good one. Great for walking, seaside, relaxation and touring. Local facilities also for zip wires, go karts, sailing, shopping should you have teenagers in your party too.
