Great cottage a real home from home. Very cosy looked like it had just been featured in a homes magazine. Very warm welcome and excellent location for exploring Cornwall.

The owner was accessible yet unobtrusive and her best selling point was that she ordered the best week's weather the South West has seen in 2016, for which we were very grateful.

"Amazing cottage would be delighted to live there permanently" The cottage was beautiful, clean and well presented. Debbie and Russell the owners had gone way beyond what you would expect of a fine hotel with a lovely welcome hamper on arrival too. The cottage is set in a lovely village location and so peaceful. Can't recommend this place enough it's just perfect. Looking forward to our return.

Lots of thoughtful touches in the cottage e. g. a home- baked cake, milk and bread were provided for our arrival. Plenty of information about the area was on hand. We loved the area as we are keen walkers and found wonderful walks right on our doorstep.

Horseshoe Cottage was ideally situated for visiting all the tourist villages and sites and the beaches are great for surfing. The cottage has every thing you could want for your stay.

Beautiful 250-year-old cottage built from the slate from the quarry just a couple of hundred yards up the road. Cosy sitting/dining room with open fire and good TV for those cosy evenings in. Kitchen with all mod-cons (inc. dishwasher & washing machine), plus crockery, cutlery, cooking utensils, etc. Top-notch bathroom with great shower and bath. Very comfortable bed. A lovely touch was the welcome pack, including homemade cake, bread, milk, bacon, eggs, porridge and biscuits, plus bag of logs & kindling. Spotlessly clean. Ideally located for St. Ives and Tintagel principally, but other North Cornwall towns and villages (e.g. Boscastle, Padstow and Rock) also within easy reach. Great local pub 5 minutes' walk at top of road - looks unassuming, but is a proper local with friendly staff and good food that's amazing value. Nice chat with the owner (who were very friendly) on arrival and departure - made us feel very welcome. They live just around the corner, so on hand for any queries, but didn't disturb us at all and we felt very much at home. Would recommend this place and also want to return.
