Tucked away in the quiet, rural village of Withiel but not far from either Wadebridge or the North Cornish beaches, it is without doubt the best-equipped property we have ever stayed at. The vast range of cutlery, crockery, cooking implements, sofa cushions,towels is amazing, the bbq is excellent and the location (set around a kind of village green) meant that the children had lost of space to play. Luckily the weather was great during our stay but the TV and music system meant that there was also lots of inside entertainment when needed. A very well-kept and charming property which we can fully recommend to others.

It offered peace and tranquility with very comfortable beds! The location was perfect to explore Cornwall from. Julie Munn could not be faulted for her attention to detail, helpfulness but also ensuring holiday privacy was maintained. We will be back for sure!

The kitchen was very well equipped with everything you could need. The bedrooms were comfortable with a selection of bedding available. We chose tthe cottage for it's central location so we could travel to various areas in the Cornwall & Devon area which worked well for us - especially as everything in Cornwall is spread out! There were lots of leaflets for things to do & a file of information in the cottage which was really useful. The only downside to the cottage was the slight damp in the main bedroom & ensuite. The extract fan doesn't work that well so the bathroom floor gets damp after a shower & the bedding felt very slightly damp upon getting in it.
