                                      Ideal location for Truro & Surrounding Area

                                      5 of 5
                                      We found this apartment to be ideal for our stay in Truro, where we were meeting up with friends. Truro is a lovely city with a huge range of independent shops. Clear instructions to get to the place were provided by the owner, who then showed us around and made us feel very welcome. The apartment was located in the very pleasant grounds of the owner, so any problems (we had none) could be swiftly resolved, parking was fine (off road), the apartment was well appointed with all needs catered for, from towels and toiletries in the lovely shower room, to all kitchen requirements and TV, books etc in the lounge. WiFi was also provided. The property was clean and very well maintained. Access to Truro and beyond was a short, easy drive (own transport is a must, unless taxi's are used). We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and would have no reservations about staying here again or passing on the details for the use of friends and family. My main reason for going to Truro was to play golf at Truro Golf Club with my friend whilst my wife went out with his wife, my wife enjoyed a mid-morning visit the 108 Coffee House, we would then meet up for lunch, one particular place we enjoyed was The Watering Hole in Perranporth, and we also took in a visit to Philps Bakery in Hayle (about 20 miles) just to try their pasties (we weren't disappointed, absolutely delicious). All in all a very nice stay.

                                      A pure haven!

                                      5 of 5
                                      I don't even know where to start with this beautiful cottage, it's breathtaking. A true little haven. As soon as my family and I stepped through the front door we were swept away with just how gorgeous the entire place is. It was kept in impeccable condition and after we'd settled in, Mark, the owner, came and introduced ourselves making us feel very welcome. It wasn't just the house though, oh no, step outside and you're a world away from civilisation in the picturesque gardens; a beautiful fountain, rose walk, pond which are just the tip of the iceberg as well as the log burner. Plus the animals!! Mark keeps goats and chickens (which he provided us with their fresh eggs for breakfast, yum yum!!) which myself and my step daughter took great delight in visiting daily. It's far enough away from civilisation for peace and quiet and yet literally, less than 5 minutes away is Truro town and you're so close to so many other areas in Cornwall. It is literally perfect, Mark has made the dream holiday home and my family and I were very sad to leave but have taken away some of the happiest memories. Would recommend this place time and time again.
