Superb quiet rural property. Lots of charm about the building and garden. Owners very friendly and helpful. Certainly one of the best we've stayed at. Highly recommended.

The place was in a wonderful setting, the owners were very welcoming and helpful. It was the sort of place you walk into and feel at home.

The cottage was a good size with two super log burners. Extra heaters were supplied in all the rooms so we were very warm and comfortable. The location was lovely and very quiet with a pretty garden and lovely stream running past. It was a convenient location for various walks and travelling in all directions to different attractions. The outside tap was very useful for washing off wellies and the dog after muddy walks.

Very friendly family on hand for advice regards local fishing spots. Beautiful old cottage, spotless on arrival - the table set for a welcoming afternoon tea with home-made sponge cake! Peaceful end of valley setting with log burning stoves. A very relaxing holiday, thank you.

(shame about the weather, 4 days of dense fog). The cottage is lovely, well but simply furnished and very clean. The beds were very comfortable, the kitchen well equipped, and the WiFi & selection of games a bonus given the weather. The bathroom is very basic. Plenty of local walks for the dog. We had concerns that it would be cold given the lack of central heating but that was never the case & the wood burners worked (too) well. The roads to the cottage are narrow and you have to be able to be skilled at reversing! Peaceful, tranquil, cosy all apply, so could isolated. We would definitely recommend the cottage but suggest that you check out summer months. Challenge the value for money, we've stayed in remote country cottages for many years over the October half term and in our opinion we overpaid by £100 ~ £150 for the week.

My wife and I stayed here in the first week of March 2014. We had chosen it as we were looking for a dog-friendly cottage in Cornwall and this seemed to fit the bill perfectly, with a dedicated garden. Given its rather secluded location, it is essential that you contact the owners on arrival at the local village to let them meet you at a rendezvous point and guide you to the property itself, down some tight and winding (typically Cornish) lanes. (You would definitely have difficulty finding it on your own in the dark !!) This arrangement worked perfectly. The setting is beautiful and tranquil (even in March) and well away from other properties – except for the owners themselves who live in a detached cottage next door. This is however not an issue, as they do not bother you, and we barely saw them or heard them the whole week. Parking is tight and at times a little awkward, as only a small space is available for one vehicle. We were expecting some friends to stay, and could have managed with 2 cars, but it would have been cramped. If you have a large vehicle (our is a Vauxhall Zafira which was just OK) I would suggest you talk to the owners beforehand. The cottage itself was lovely with 2 good sized double bedrooms and a small third bedroom with twin beds – fine for children. One bathroom upstairs with bath, shower etc. There are 2 reception rooms with a wood burning stove in each – an initial generous supply of wood is provided, but if you make regular use of them, you will need to buy more – plenty of local shops stock suitable firewood. This is an old cottage (1800s I believe) and displays all the quirks and character one should expect – uneven stone floors, narrow steep stairs and a propensity towards damp/condensation. None of this in any way affected us - in fact it enhanced its charm, but just be aware if you are expecting something more modern. There is no telephone service in the property (there is Wi-Fi) and mobile service is difficult – although we did manage to get ours working by hanging out of the bedroom window. Anna (the owner) showed us over the cottage on arrival, with a cheerful fire already burning in the living room, and tea service laid out – complete with chocolate cake and fresh flowers. What a lovely greeting, especially given the Cornish drizzle at the time. There is plenty to do in the area, with visits to the coast, as well as Bodmin Moor almost on the doorstep – great for dogwalking or just hiking. We had a great week, apart from some indifferent weather at times, but what do you expect in Cornwall in March ! Even the dog behaved himself. Many thanks to Anna for a truly wonderful stay. We will be back !

We would recommend it to those who want to laze about or potter round in the nearby woods and fields with the dog-if that suits you,this is the place

A well presented cottage which had all the facilities of modern day living, but was remote, tranquil and very cosy.

Quaint, lovingly restored cottage in a beautiful setting. It had everything we could possibly want, and it was extremely clean and comfortable. Peaceful and quiet, as it was tucked away. The owners were very friendly and helpful.

Fantastic location; log burners in the rooms, lovely décor and the owners had thought about all the things that are usually neglected - comfortable beds, cooking utensils, even knives sharp enough to actually be useful! The garden was beautiful - perfect for relaxing after a long day of walking.

Liked the comfort of the house, the helpfulness of the owners and the welcoming gift at the start of the holiday. Lovely lanes leading to the cottage, the serenity offered by the cottage and although close to the owners house, the complete privacy that there was. AWESOME.
Mr Rowe

The absolute privacy of the cottage and garden. The setting and surroundings were just as we had pictured them - a truly peaceful and ideal environment to relax and enjoy the pleasures of country life. Also the care and consideration given by the owners to their guests was outstanding.

A magical place, a lovely cottage and setting. Would recommend it for anyone needing to unwind. The cottage almost instantly worked it's magic. Owners were very friendly, so helpful - met us in the village on arrival to guide us to the cottage.

Lovely family put their heart into creating a welcoming secluded and peaceful retreat for humans and pets. We all feel very restored after 2 wonderful weeks, thanks to the care and hospitality of our hosts.

The area around Foxgloves is lovely, peaceful and quiet. The owners were very unobtrusive even though they live next door. It was a very cosy cottage, would love to see the garden in all it's glory in the spring/summer.

It was home from home. A very tranquil and beautiful cottage with lovely owners who gave us a perfect welcome. The owners have thought of everything and it was very well equipped and very clean. There were beautiful walks in the woods directly behind the cottage which made it perfect with our dog. I would have no hesitation in recommending the cottage.
Mr Johnson

Foxgloves is very peaceful, good walks in woods with the dog, thought heating wouldn't be adequate but with both log burners lit was very warm. Pleasant owners in a lovely countryside, with decent pubs around.
