We booked an autumnal break in early October, to recharge our batteries, just my husband and I and our beloved pet Ted, a very well behaved Jack Russell.
The accommodation was good, plenty of space, although the sofas were very grubby and in dire need of a good clean. I blame this upon previous guests who perhaps weren't so fastidious about keeping their pets off the furniture, as the sofas dis smell very 'doggy'. Personally when hiring a cottage where the owners are kind enough to accept pets, we take along clean decorators 'drop cloths' and cover the sofas just in case the dog decides to sneek up there during the night.
The cottage itself was extremely clean, with plenty of cooking utensils available. The bedrooms were large, the master having an en-suite. The main lounge/dining/kitchen area was open plan, with central heating throughout the property. The main area having a log burning stove for use during really cod weather. We were lucky enough not to need either as the weather was kind to us.
There were double glass doors that opened out onto a lovely garden space. The owners ask if hirers would kindly water the tubs and baskets, just to maintain the colourful display. There is a deck area, and at the bottom of the garden a small barbecue area. The who of the garden being securely fenced in to prevent escaping toddlers or pets.
We didn't have the pleasure of meeting the owners or their representatives during our stay, which was a pity.
Although the cottages back onto a quarry, we weren't disturbed by noise or excess traffic. We enjoyed visiting parts of Cornwall we haven't visited for a few years, and would certainly re-book this property again.
