My partner and I spent a lovely 3 days at the property exploring the countryside and trekking down to the Eden project. We enjoyed staying in and relaxing over New Year's Eve and enjoyed waking up to the new year surrounded by nature. I would highly recommend this space. It's clean, airy and beautifully decorated. Very calm, just what we wanted ☺

                                                                                                      5 of 5

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
