About Mr John Garratt

Gill and John Garratt named this 'Happy Cottage' after a guest said how happy she was staying there. We have tried to make this a 'home from home' with all the facilities you would expect, high level of comfort and convenience. Warm and cosy in Winter, light and airy in Summer. Access directly onto the lovely Cornish stone patio to take your glass of wine and have a barbeque. Quiet, leafy and lovely lawns, beautiful flower beds.

Mr John Garratt purchased this cottage in 2002

Why Mr John Garratt chose Budock

Gill & John have been coming to Falmouth for 30 years - they used to camp on the very spot where their holiday cottage is situated. Their children and friends love this spot and we have all enjoyed many happy Summers and Winter weekends, Christmas and New Year here. The local beach is quiet and traditional, a short walk from the cottage. Gill has travelled widely having worked on Cruise Ships - Falmouth is her favourite place.

What makes this cottage unique

A beautiful, modern cottage, relaxing and calming. Wake up to bird song and go to sleep under the amazing night sky that is very clear from the cottage, free of town lights. The gardens have been tended by the same staff for decades, their artistic influence and experience mean many flower beds bursting with colour and local Cornish shrubs and bushes. Happy Cottage has open lawns at the rear with palm trees and an old Oak tree in the centre. safe and secure for the children to play whilst you enjoy that cup of coffee after supper.

We couldn't ask for more in a holiday cottage. The beds were very comfy, and although it was 2 degrees outside, the cottage was lovely & warm. A full working kitchen with dishwasher & washing machine made it a home from home. As we visit Falmouth 3+ times a year, I would not hesitate to use Happy Cottage again

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for such a lovely review. We are very happy that you were all comfortable and had everything you needed. Our aim is to make Happy Cottage a high quality place to stay in beautiful surroundings but at a budget price. We have always found it to be cosy and warm in Winter and cool and airy in Summer surrounded by trees and flowers. We think that when you are on holiday you should have the same facilities as at home including good quality beds, Wifi, a good sized T.V. with lots of stations via wifi, extra aerial points and enough chairs for six to relax or sit at the table. Simple but sufficient. You and your family are welcome any time, Jacqueline, you were superb guests.

What a lovely place to stay! And even better they accepted our well behaved dogs!

The directions given were a little confusing as it stated the location of said houses were half a mile down the main road when in actual fact it was around 3 miles!

The house was a perfect size for 3 adults, 2 children and 2 dogs. We also worked out how to switch on the water heater, once we finally found the location of the boiler! We went for a nice walk around the complex as well. Quiet location and easy access to Penryn and Falmouth. Would definitely stay here again!

Perfect place for staying for a couple of days with dogs near Falmouth. Great contact with owners who were very helpful and quick with replies and information. Kitchen facilities - great! Plenty of crockery and cutlery and cooking implements - great for those who want to do self catering.

Beautiful gardens, nice and quiet. Apparently the bar has not been open for some time. We were told 2 years. Splash pool fun for kids, but odd opening times
