The properties generally sleep between two and five people and many are pet friendly, so visitors can always test the water on a romantic interlude, before bringing the whole family on the next trip.

With these charming and modern cottages more reasonably priced than places like self-styled foodie paradise Padstow, a stay in Stratton is the smart way to holiday.

They are perfect for visitors looking for a comfortable, personal experience without the hassle of a hotel. Whether seeking to savour the slower pace of life in a small village, or eager to get into something exciting nearby, Stratton offers activities for every taste.

The food welcome pack was delightful! Downstairs there is a very spacious, open plan lounge and dining area with a very well equipped kitchen, having pretty much everything you need for a comfortable stay. The bedroom on the ground floor has two single beds and a TV. This room has en-suite access to a Jack and Jill bathroom with a roll top bath as well as a shower. There are two, very large bedrooms on the first floor, both have en-suite shower rooms. Each of these rooms also has a TV and DVD player! The bedrooms are all amazing and the beds were extremely comfortable. Located in a very quiet area but with easy access to main roads. I would highly recommend staying here.

The kitchen is the best equipped we have found and the welcome pack was very generous, with the cream tea very welcome after our journey! The downstairs accommodation is excellent, well equipped and very comfortable. The only negative comment I would make is that the bedroom ceilings, being built in the eaves, mean that you have to be careful to not bang your head. Bob and Nic were very welcoming and available to answer any questions.

The Saffron cake, Cornish cider, milk and shortbread biscuits were a very lovely surprise when we arrived after our long drive. The cottage is beautiful and we felt very much at home. We had a lot of fun keeping the fire going, enjoying cosy evenings in after windswept seaside walks during the day. The perfect place for lots of scenic excursions. Thank you very much again for letting us share in your patch of paradise and for being so helpful with instructions beforehand.
