About Diane and Terry K

I came to visit Cornwall on my 19th birthday and never left as the county is so beautiful. I am married to Terry whose family descend from Penzance. We have two adult children who both live close by. We bought Carrine Farm 17 years ago when Sara's Cottage was an old derelict calving barn. We converted it into holiday accommodation 8 years ago.

We live in the farmhouse close to Sara's Cottage so we are on hand if you need anything but we respect your privacy.

We are dog lovers and have 2 Golden Retrievers. We also have 3 horses in the fields.

Terry is a Chartered Accountant and I have worked in Finance all my life.

Beautiful cottage

  • 5 of 5

After a long journey, we were grateful to arrive to a roaring log fire, cream tea with scones and clotted cream, as well as the basic necessities such as milk and bread. Diane and Terry have thought of everything to make your stay as comfortable as possible. It really is a home from home - the kitchen is well stocked with pots, pans and utensils, and the bathrooms with lovely soap, shower gel and shampoo. Diane and Terry were helpful with recommending where to go on days out and where to go for dinner, which was useful as we had never visited the area before. We had a brilliant time, and we will definitely be recommending Sara's Cottage.

Owner's Response: Terry and I are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay in the cottage. We hope that you had a less eventful journey home and that your vehicle is now in full working order. It was lovely to meet you all and your lovely dog Fred. Best wishes. Diane

A Lovely beautiful cottage

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Sara's Cottage. Everything was perfect as always. Diane and Terry cannot do enough to make your stay superb. The cottage has everything you would need for a great holiday. The location is excellent, peaceful and quiet for a nice relaxing break. This is our 9th stay at the cottage and we have already booked for 2018. The cottage is very comfy and everything is top quality,

Beautiful cottage.

  • 5 of 5

After 20 years staying in many different properties, Sara's Cottage is the cleanest & most beautifully presented we have come across. Diane's attention to quality & detail make it a truly 5 star property. It is close to Truro yet so peaceful and is a great base to visit both the north coast (dog friendly Perranporth beach) and the south with Falmouth and the Roseland peninsula in easy reach. The garden is a haven for a variety of garden birds and we happily watched their antics in the comfortable conservatory on dull days. There is simply nothing not to like.

Perfect cottage with everything you want & more

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is decorated to a high standard and very well equipped. The cottage has its own patio area and private garden which is frequently visited by many different birds. A very quiet and relaxing location and two very friendly owners. A perfect holiday cottage which we intend to return to one day.

5* Accomodation with 7* Service

  • 5 of 5

Sara`s Cottage is really a 5 * holiday accommodation. We stayed for 2 weeks with our kids and we all loved the cottage and the very welcoming service from Diane and Terry. All you need is in the cottage. All information needed are either already provided or are given by Diane and Terry. Both made possible whatever is in their hands. They even prayed for better weather for us (and even this worked out!).

The cottage is very calm and extremely clean. The garden is very relaxing and has a lot of birds. If you want to visit Truro and around this is the place to stay. We will definitely come back.

Many thanks Diane and Terry !

Sara’s Cottage booking conditions
1. Bookings
The availability page on our website gives an indication of the current booking position but is not a guarantee of availability.
When you submit a booking via our online reservation system you will receive an automatically generated booking summary by email to the email address you provide on the booking form. This does not form a contract between us. A contract will only arise when your booking is subsequently confirmed in writing by post or email.

2. Deposit
A booking for a holiday becomes firm when we have received full details of all occupants and a non-refundable deposit of 25% of the holiday price is received by us. Until that time your reservation is provisional and will be held for a maximum of 7 days. Remittances must be made in pounds sterling. The deposit is returnable if the booking is not accepted.

3. Final Payment
The full balance of the total holiday cost is payable no later than 60 days before your holiday commences. If the full balance is not paid on time we reserve the right to cancel the booking, in which case the deposit will be forfeited.

4. Cancellation
If you need to cancel less than 60 days before your holiday begins we will endeavour to re-book the property and, if successful, will refund monies paid less the deposit. With more than 60 days cancellation notice, the deposit only would be forfeited. Guests are therefore advised to take out holiday cancellation insurance to cover any eventuality.

5. Right to refuse
We reserve the right to refuse any booking and, in exceptional circumstances, to cancel or alter arrangements made for you. If we should need to cancel the booking due to circumstances beyond our control we will refund all monies paid by you in full.

6. Arrival and Departure
Accommodation will be available to you from 3.00pm on the arrival day. The cottage will be unlocked prior to your arrival and the keys will be inside.
