About Elaine and David
We are a small family living in London, but have been holidaying in the Padstow area of Cornwall since our grown up son was a tiny tot. We have come to love the area and Dormouse reflects the style and innovation that Elaine has in creating wonderfully cosy 'home from home' special places to stay.
Elaine and David purchased this Cottage in 2014
Why Elaine and David chose Saint Ervan
Dormouse is an extention of our own home. You have all the benefits of the style and luxury that we like to enjoy ourselves. Dormouse is sweet, quaint but contemporary and fits well with the modern family and all its requirements.
What makes this Cottage unique
We are super doggie friendly with outside hot taps for dirty muts and all outside hot shower for sandy wet suits and feet. Spoil yourself luxuriating in the wonderful ensuite antique Slipper Bath, or spend many happy cosy hours cooking to your hearts content in a real 'cooks kitchen'. A full SKY package in 4 rooms.
100% refund for cancellations more than 60 days before check-in date.
Warm, cosy and luxurious, lots of lovely details, character, charm.
Don’t really want to share this with anyone as it will be too popular to be able to book again. Outstanding, homely and relaxing.
Oh thank you - what a lovely review! So glad you so enjoyed Dormouse, she's our very own special bolt hole that we love to share with others, when we are not there ourselves. Please do come again, we would love to welcome you back. Kind regards, Elaine and Dave (and Nelly our black lab)
A beautiful country cottage
We really enjoyed our stay at door mouse cottage. It’s set in a really peaceful village. The cottage has everything you need. A really well equipped kitchen, great family room with full sky package in all the rooms. My three boys were very happy watching movies whenever we stayed in. The surrounding area has beautiful scenery . Close to some lovely beaches and really central to get to Padstow and Newquay. A lovely base to holiday from. And the owner Elaine went above and beyond to make sure we enjoyed our stay.
Lovely cottage in very quiet village
We expected a well fitted out cottage and we weren't disappointed - in fact the kitchen had more equipment than we have at home - the beds were so comfy we slept like logs and except for the weather the break was very good
No shops in the village so you need a car to get about to do your shopping - however the farm does sell fresh eggs
The cottage also has plenty of books, games, DVDs, so if the weather is awful there's plenty to do indoors !
We had a meal at The Cornish Arms in St. Merryn (Rick Steins) which was lovely and as we had our little dog with us, we were very pleased that he was allowed in - in fact - there were dogs everywhere and we can recommend the menu as we all had something different
Constantine Bay was lovely for dogs to run about and our dog soon made friends
So glad you enjoyed Dormouse Cottage. We have set it up, so that if the weather is not so clement, you can tuck yourself up in the cottage and have a lovely relaxing peaceful time, Summer or Winter. Hope you enjoyed our full SKY package and were able to catch up on all your TV favorite programs. Come back again! Kind regard Elaine
Lovely cottage ideally situated for some amazing coastline scenery.
Fantastic cottage, tucked away in a quiet village. Has pretty much everything you'd ever need equipment wise for full self catering. The interior is finished to a very high spec and was extremely clean and homely. Every major room has a TV and a full sky package, although we really didn't venture much out of the kitchen/dining area while we were there.
Using the information provided we found some cracking beaches, the one nearest (1.5 miles away) was amazing, especially when the tide was out, absolutely stunning.
The outside has a shower and a warm dog shower if needed so again everything was thought of
We've had an amazing stay and will definitely consider coming back here........fantastic place.
Some suggestions - maybe some guidance on dog walks would be helpful as I think we may have been using a private field, I was waiting to be confronted by an angry farmer. Also access to the garage would have been useful for bike storage. But make no mistake, this place was superb........10 out of 10 from all of us.....!
Lovely place for a quiet relaxing holiday.
Really enjoyed staying at this beautiful cottage. Everything you could want for, and more, in a home from home. Lovely bedrooms, fantastic kitchen and a cozy sitting and dining area. All beautifully furnished and with wood burning stoves. Our dog loved it there. Good recommendations for places to eat locally and to visit. Our best place for eating out was the St Tudy Inn. We enjoyed breakfast outside in the garden, tranquil and restful. The large screen TV was great with a comprehensive entertainment package. Top notch. Many thanks.
so glad you had a lovely time at Dormouse Cottage. Holiday time is so precious to us all, and we are delighted you enjoyed the special luxury 'home away from home' atmosphere that we hoped to create at Dormouse Cottage. Come back again!!
