Wagtail Cottage is a charming cottage with lovely period features. Very comfortable beds. Plenty of space which can be unusual in a country cottage. Really could not find any fault at all! Will definitely be recommending to friends and will be looking to stay again when I holiday again in Cornwall in the future.

This Cottage is ideally located for exploring all of Cornwall and West Devon. The Cottage is very well appointed and our hosts are very welcoming and helpful. Cornwall is breathtaking and there are lots of different things to see and do.

The cottage was lovely and in an excellent location for visiting many of the towns and villages in the area. There was plenty of space for the four of us; having two double bedrooms was a bonus as well. The shower was super, the sofas were comfy and the televisions in the bedrooms were a luxury.

This darling cottage is equipped with everything you could want . It is tastefully decorated throughout and very inkeeping with the building itself and country surroundings. Modern kitchen and shower room. Within easy reach of Looe and it's sandy beach, Eden project, lost gardens of Heligan, Mevagissy, aren't very far away,. Also pretty secluded garden for your evening glass of tipple. Very quiet location with the most comfortable beds which promises a perfect night's sleep at the end of your busy day. The drawback for some maybe that there is no pub or any shops within walking distance. Though it never bothered my Daughter or myself. Would love to return next time we visit Cornwall.
