Poor and very expensive

  • 2 of 5

I would not recommend this cottage particularly for the price. The cottage was extremely expensive for what it was. It was clean and tidy but not welcoming and very basic. The hot water was not on when we arrived late at night or the following night. The owners seemed dozy and disinterested. It would have been nice to have a proper welcome pack such as fresh bread and milk, salt and pepper and a local map, and some local information about walks and local pubs etc. Instead there were a few tea bags and a carton of long life milk. Cornwall is a beautiful place but the owners seemed distressingly unaware. The oven was dangerously hot on the outside and unsafe especially if there had been little children.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to review our property. There was a problem with the hot water which was not on when you arrived very late at night. This was rectified early the next day so I am not sure why there was no hot water the following evening. Even at 4PM there should still have been hot water in the system At your request, we did put on both the boiler and the immersion to make sure that the water was hot for you. There have been no issues with hot water since. We make it quite clear to all of our guests when they arrive that we are more than happy to assist them with their holiday plans or to leave them in peace as is their wish. Unfortunately, you missed our welcome due to your very late arrival. We are very far from being ignorant of Cornwall's charms. I have had the oven door temperature checked and it is within the BSI guide lines for an oven of its type. There is nothing at all wrong with it.

Peaceful and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Barn Owl in August 2016. It is in a lovely secluded position, peaceful with views across the rolling countryside. The accommodation was perfect for the two of us, very clean and tidy and well presented. Its location was in the countryside but was within easy travelling distance of picturesque fishing villages of Looe, Polperro and Fowey.

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at the Old Pensipple and would recommend staying with Mark & Jan Salt in there lovely peaceful accommodation.
