Good sized enclosed rear garden and gated front, so very safe for small children and dogs. Always a concern when booking "pet friendly" places that it will smell of dog - absolutely not the case here. Teabags, milk and biscuits left out for our arrival. Ideall location for visiting Rock, Padstow, Port Isaac etc, although if you are forced to have holidays in the school holidays as I am, be prepared to get to these places early! Lots of decent local walks with the dog and excellent fish and chips from the local chippy. We had a minor issue with the heating and the front door lock ( we were trapped inside!!) but the housekeeper was there very quickly to help us out. Highly recommended.

The owners have thought of everything you could possibly need. The house was immaculate, beautifully decorated and very comfortable with plenty of room for the six of us and three dogs! We had a very enjoyable holiday and would definitely choose Cobbetts when we next come to Cornwall.

We visited as a group of 3 families with mixed age children. The separate downstairs lounge was perfect as a children's retreat that gave the adults some peace in the evenings! Beautiful garden leading down to the river. Easy walk into Camelford & to The Masons Arms which is the local pub serving fantastic food. The property is very well equipped. The hot tub is a nice touch & great to relax in after a busy day out exploring.
