                                                              Gorgeous cottage in the heart of Wadebridge

                                                              5 of 5
                                                              We had a wonderful week at Brae Cottage, beautifully maintained, spotlessly clean with everything you could possible need. After a busy day coming "home" to Brae was something to look forward to, a well equipped kitchen, cosy living room, sleek shower room, comfortable beds, snuggly duvets, our teenager daughter especially loved the duvet, heaven! Mike and Jen have thought of everything, books and maps of the area, recommended eateries even two adult bikes to use. Wadebridge is a pretty town with lovely shops, cafes and restaurants, Lidl and Co-op are within 5 minutes walk of the cottage. We'd recommend cycling the camel trail to Padstow and also to drive to Rock and ferry across to Padstow, walk the dog on Daymer Bay, go body boarding at Polzeath, hire all you need at Ann's cottage. Trip to Port Issac a must especially if a Doc Martin fan! Further afield St.Mawes is beautiful. All in all a brilliant holiday and we had pretty descent weather! Don't hesitate to book Brae cottage, it's perfect, even our dog loved it, Olive would lie outside the kitchen window catching the rays whilst we made breakfast. Wonderful!

                                                              Fantastic Family Holiday

                                                              5 of 5
                                                              Our first impression when looking on this website at the property is that you only rented part of the house and maybe shared it with other tenants or the owners – a complete misconception on our part. So although you would imagine a 2 bed, 1 bathroom place to be smaller, you get the whole deal! The house has a cottage charm in a remote quiet area assessable by a typical Cornish single width road. It feels isolated and private yet is only 10 minutes to Wadebridge/Bodmin. The owners respond promptly to any enquiries and will meet you at the property to show you around. They provide a small, lovely, thoughtful starter pack of groceries which enables you to get through the first evening without having to venture out again (Tesco do also deliver though!). The damage deposit laid down is returned to you within a couple of days of returning home – no fuss. It is obvious that this is a loved lived in home rather than a holiday let and as such has so many more amenities that you wouldn’t normally expect. I couldn’t fault the kitchen and you were made to feel welcome to use any of the condiments/household items etc in the cupboards, this we did but were sensible with everything on offer and replaced anything that was completely used up. Ample towels are provided and we made use of the two adult bikes on loan. The pictures do not reflect the true size of the land available to you. In total over 3 acres, some of which is taken up by a paddock at the bottom of the garden which had sheep in whilst we were there. The gardens are well maintained but not level. Our kids aged 8 & 9 did not find the steps a problem but this may be an issue for a family with very small children. We loved that we could sit on the decking area chilling out looking at the remarkable view whilst the kids literally spent hours playing hide and seek in the garden! You can see the River Camel and trail from the property and there is an access point just beyond the bottom of the garden. It is an easy, flat 15/20mins cycle to Wadebridge, longer to Bodmin but we did stop in a tea shop and pub on route. We found the best time to cycle was early evening when the trail was quieter. This property ticked all our boxes for a family holiday and I have no doubt we will return!
