Excellent accomodation. situated perfectly for the beach and attractions, comfortable place and very private. would recommend
Absolutely cannot fault our stay at Buzzards Cottage! Mike and Caroline were so welcoming - the scones and wine were much appreciated after our journey! The location is fantastic and our girls loved the trampoline! Beds super comfy and cottage equipped with everything you could need. Will definitely be back and have recommended to family and friends.
The property was very comfortable and welcoming, as were Mike and Caroline. We were greeted with wine, fresh eggs from then hens, and freshly made scones on arrival. We couldn't fault the property or the location. Our two young daughters loved the trampoline! They also loved their Easter eggs; their reward for colouring in a goose egg each as part of a competition Mike and Caroline gave them.
Fantastic value for money, and we hope to return. Have already recommended to a number of friends.
Although close to the A30, you wouldn't know it from the low noise level from the traffic.
We've just got back from an excellent week at the cottage. I can't praise it highly enough. Mike and his family went out of their way to make us feel welcome. The cottage is superb. I would recommend it to anyone looking to stay in the area. It was the perfect base for our holiday in Cornwall.
My disabled partner & I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the bungalow. Lovely bungalow in a good position for all attractions and cycle trails. Very comfortable home from home like, everything that you possibly needed, welcome gift on arrival - Bottle of wine, eggs, milk, tea & coffee. Beds were comfortable, along with the sofas, Mike & his family made us very welcome & Puppy/Dumpey the dog was gorgeous, very friendly.
I would definitely recommend and am most certainly going back!
This is a lovely bungalow set in the grounds of the owners property. The bungalow is very modern & well equipped & is in a perfect location for getting around Cornwall without having to drive too far. Booking was easy and good value for money especially at New Year. We would certainly recommend staying here.
