The owner was lovely, really helpful and welcoming. The cottage was extremely well equiped & beautifully presented. I had privacy without feeling remote and the tranquility of the location was very much welcomed. I really had everything I needed and felt very much at home - as did my dog. Faye, the owner was amazing, especially as my car broke down just after I left for my homewards journey and she did her very best to help me, even offering to pick me up and bring me back to the cottages and make me tea. I really could not have asked for a warmer welcome & have already recommended the cottages to half a dozen people.

The welcome hamper was even better than last time and that's saying something. The cottage was again lovely and clean, well presented, warm and cozy, full of linen, cutlery and everything you'd need for a week away in Cornwall. It's in a fantastic location with lots of beaches and other attractions less than an hour away, you'll be hard pressed to find such a lovely holiday cottage, with such fantastic owners for the price and dog walks on your door step. The best compliment I can pay to Mark and Tracey is that the dogs are just as relaxed as they are when we're at home (thats a rareity) and that whenever we're there we just want to pick the cottage up and move it into our Village. Thank You Mark and Tracey for another great stay, we will return soon. :) Steve and Zoe
