The cottage was every bit as delightful as the photos on the website suggested it would be. It was in a good location for travelling to the various places we wanted to visit.

This cottage was absolutely stunning! Bought as a Christmas gift from my husband I immediately looked at the pictures online and the were beautiful but when we arrived I was astounded by its beauty inside and out. Such a wonderful location and the peace and quiet was just what we needed. The kitchen area was just outstanding and the polka dot crockery collection was fabulous! Going upstairs to our beautiful bedroom was thee most comfortable bed in the whole wide world and a lovely wood fire burner. Then came my favourite part of the cottage, the fabulous corner bath and a stunning sink, have never seen such a beautiful sink. Whether you use this cottage as a stop gap or a romantic retreat it certainly is worth a stay!!

Providing you follow the owner's directions and don't rely on SatNav, the cottage was easy to find. Parking is a short distance away from the entrance. It's an old farm cottage building, which has been tastefully decorated and furnished (in 2015, we think). There's nothing from Ikea here; instead you'll find Next, JosephJosept, John Lewis, etc. Spacious enough for two and, yes, it could be described as romantic. We would have preferred more choice over lighting in the combined sitting room and kitchen. With only wall lights and lights inside the top of the kichen cupboards (plus spotlight over the sink), it felt gloomy and over time, depressing. The small windows meant that there was little natural light; some recessed lighting in the ceiling would have made it much better. Very comfortable bed and an "okay" shower. We were not blown over by the strange sink, but it served its purpose. The "cottage garden" was principally an area of decking. Once we'd managed to turn off the water feature, we enjoyed the sound of the birds. Conveniently situated for visiting both the west and east coasts of Cornwall, we clocked up quite a few miles. Didn't manage to find a nearby sandy beach, but Looe and Newquay were not too far away. Would recommend to a friend only if the lighting and location had been better.

We loved this place! The location was beautiful; quiet, idyllic and situated centrally to many of the sites we wished to visit. The cottage was lovely; very tastefully decorated and had everything we needed to be comfortable. The little garden and sitting area was perfect for relaxing after a day's outing. We loved the peace and quiet and appreciated the friendly neighbours.
