The details of the property were brilliant, as were the owners pre holiday information. The beds are so comfortable and needed after a long day sightseeing. We all loved the fish and chips from the van that visits the village on a Tuesday and the local pub is a must! The teenagers loved the table tennis and my grandson loved the safe and secluded garden. The home is in a great position for reaching local areas, we would definitely recommend the lizard, st michaels mount and of course lands end. I don't have anything at all negative to say about the property, only thanks to the owners for letting us stay 😀 I'm sorry we didn't get chance to mop before we left 😕 thank you, and hopefully we can do another holiday with you again soon.

Parking is about as good as you can hope for in a village. Stairs can be a bit dodgey but nothing you can do about that. All in all cant fault it.

                                                                                        We contacted Paula prior to our stay to ask if it was ok to arrive late as we were travelling to Cornwall after work, and she said she would leave the lights on and the keys for us. Our trip down was smooth, and we arrived just as the sun went down over Cadgwith. We pulled into the site, and straight away could see the absolutely gorgeous Coach House in the grounds, with the shutters up and a warm glow and lighting coming from within. You cannot imagine my excitement! The carriage itself is just down the path from the parking, and I left my hubby to bring in the luggage while I simply drooled over what met us. The old coach is super quaint, homely, vintagey and it was warm from the small stove (electric) which gave the inviting glow. The beautiful bed, complete with floral duvets, throws and cushions was inviting after a long drive and we couldnt wait to unpack and relax. The coach is well equipped with everything you'll need, and there was a cream tea waiting for us on the cute pine table in the corner. The fridge contained milk and clotted cream from a local dairy in traditional glass bottles and jars which added to the whole feel of nostalgia. We closed the original shutters and had the most perfect nights sleep in this magical place, awaking to find goats, ducks and cockerel not far from our door - simply idyllic! Paula introduced herself to us and she is simply lovely, and it seems nothing is too much trouble to ensure a relaxing stay. The old coach is a fabulous, unique holiday home, with many home comforts. The site is immaculate, and the location is great for touring and visiting the whole of the lizard and further. We found the coves and harbours simply gorgeous and had a lovely week. I would recommend the Old Coach House to anyone, and we will return next year. Thank you Paula, we loved it! xxx
