The place was immaculate, spacious, comfortable and above all so peaceful and tranquil. The cottage had everything we could possible need, plus more. We loved eating meals on the patio in the very large garden. We visited The Kings Head which was very nice and friendly too, on the seafood extravaganza night. The Hidden Hut was great for lunch, and we went with some friends we met whilst down here to the Sharks Fin which was a great night out too. We cooked quite a bit in the cottage, caught fish and seafood while out on our boat and came back to cook it. Bliss We have stayed in some beautiful places and travel regularly, we rarely stay at the same place twice. We both agreed are ready to book Ardevora Mill Cottage again for next year it was so amazing. A perfect place in a perfect location, need to make issue of the kayaks on site when we come again next year, just not enough time to do everything we wanted to do. 10/10 for everything.

The steps leading Upto the front door are narrow making getting a good size suitcase difficult to get in . Parking is bad with no direct parking outside the house but if you don't arrive too late parking on the Main Street can be available. Strangely there is 2 downstairs toilets , one with shower and one with bath so if the loo is needed in the night it's a short walk downstairs !

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.
