“Home from Home”
Reviewed 20 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

What a cottage. Absolutely everything covered. Great location and facilities. Nothing is left to chance. Village very friendly. Had a shop and pub serving great food. Comfortable beds, luxury linen and excellent decor. Beautiful art. The roses, wine and cream tea were greatly appreciated.

You should really visit. We will return as so much to do in the area

Thank you Tim & Jo.
Nice to meet Roy too

“A real home from home in a wonderful location”
Reviewed 20 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

The owners have gone to so much trouble to make this the perfect cottage holiday. Flowers, bubbly and cream tea awaited us on arrival and the cottage had everything we needed. My husband was very impressed y the CD & DVD collection (no need to have brought our own!) and the cottage was very comfortable and tastefully furnished. I was particularly taken with the south facing garden facing the church tower and we were lucky enough to have gorgeous weather to enjoy sitting out watching the birds (binoculars and bird book provided). Lovely walks in the surrounding fields, characterful pub 2 mins away and within easy reach (by car) of beaches, Camel Valley Vineyard and trail and Bodmin Moor. Our children want us to make this an annual visit!

“Beautiful cottage which exceeded all our expectations”
Reviewed 3 June 2013 for a stay in May 2013

We escaped to this beautiful cottage as part of our honeymoon. It has been decorated to a very high standard and contains everything you could want for a cornish getaway. The log burner was perfect for romantic nights in and the garden is a great spot to enjoy a glass of wine in the early evening. We had a lovely stay - thank you!
