Perfect location, pet friendly and property is stunning

This is not the first time we have used an OwnersDirect property but it is the first time I feel the necessity to share just HOW GOOD this property is. We stayed here over new years 2017, taking our two cocker spaniels with us. We arrived and the owners has considerately made slight changes to accommodate our dogs, an additional gate made it secure to leave the door open and give them the option to go into the garden without supervision. Going into the kitchen we found the dogs had been accommodated with a water bowl and treats, it's these small things that make a rental just that little bit more special and also highlights the thoughtfulness of the owners. There is a field opposite we could use to give them a run if needed prior to going out for the day or at the end of the day when the light had gone. The owners have tastefully decorated and furnished the property to a very, very high standard and whilst we were there it felt very much like a home from home. The location is perfect, with or without pets. The reservoir is on your doorstep and although we had quite awful weather it did not deter us from the 6 mile walk with the dogs and a good pub at the end of it (which is about 200m from your front door). Everywhere is accessible to you, 5/6 miles to beaches and about 10 miles from Falmouth. Supermarkets are only a few miles away, family butcher even closer - what more could you ask for if you just want to get away from it all. Back to the property, the pictures although accurate do not give it justice - the kitchen is large and fully equipped and the bathroom is absolutely luxurious offering free standing bath, large walk-in shower and double basins. Last but not least, the owners are great - I need say no more than that. We would go back tomorrow and plan to return in the summer because we can see the additional benefits it would afford us if we had good weather. If Amanda and Charlie are reading this review, thank you so very much for just being so laid back and accommodating as hosts. Tracey and Andy (plus the dogs of course)
