                                                      Amazing accommodation with every need catered for. Spotlessly clean and additional luxury of towels and robes. My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful relaxing 3 night stay and would definitely return.

                                                      The Garden Cottage was so well presented - very tastefully decorated, clean, and well-equipped , looking onto a beautiful little private garden and patio. The location was great for exploring North and South Cornwall, and we definitely hope to return .Great place to recharge your batteries!

                                                      This is an extremely well equipped property. The kitchen has everything you could need, as does the rest of the house, everything has been carefully thought out. The house is very clean and tidy, as is the bedding and bathrooms, and spacious too. The beach of Crackington Haven is about 5 min drive away with a friendly pub grub too. We visit Cornwall every year as we have family in Newquay. Bude and Port Isaac are a short drive away and well worth a visit. We even went to the Eden Project about 1.5 hours away! You can walk to the local post office/ corner store which is very friendly. The view over the valley and the sheep are stunning, although a little windy when we went due to a storm. The downstairs is very open plan - although having a separate room for the 'little ones or teens' that don't want to mix ;) and a downstairs wet room which was very handy for the surfers! Our experience with the owners and booking was made extremely easy and they were very helpful. I would defiantly recommend this as a holiday home, and would return again. It was just very slightly too far for us to travel daily to Newquay to visit family. Defiantly a 10/10 experience, thank you for making it so enjoyable. Regards, Wendie and Greg Hayes.
