A great stay in a fantastic cottage
We just wanted to say a really big thank you for sharing your beautiful cottage, Little Cobbetts with us last week. We had an absolutely fabulous time, felt at home immediately we arrived and our dog Flora loved the garden and looking out of the gate at passing people/cars.
It is situated in such a convenient area and we loved exploring Bude, Rock and driving a little further afield to places such as Watergate Bay were we had visited many years ago when our children were small.
We hope to be back sometime in the future and would recommend this cottage to anyone looking for a relaxing, home from home break.

Small and Perfectly Formed
Lovely cottage, centrally located near the west coast of Northern Cornwall - a perfect base for exploring beautiful Cornwall. The cottage welcomes humans and dogs, so your pet can holiday, too!
We enjoyed the pretty cottage with its fully outfitted kitchen, tranquil setting, and easy access to Camelford. It was neat and tidy upon arrival and it's lovely decor was welcoming, too.
We enjoyed the farm shop and restaurant nearby, just outside Port Isaac, called Trevathan Farm where we had the best Victoria Sponge cake in Cornwall!
You'll enjoy the fabulous amenities, quality communication with the owners, and a perfect stay.
It is It is always great to know we are getting it right and that our guests have enjoyed their stay with us. Its been a stormy week weather-wise so we are pleased our guests find Little Cobbetts a lovely place to chill and relax.

Upon arrival the cottage was warm, welcoming and tastefully furnished. There were fresh flowers and a welcome hamper. The cottage was extremely well equipped and contained everything we needed. The location was great for exploring north Cornwall, with its excellent beaches and beautiful countryside. There was good communication with the owners throughout the whole booking process and everything else. I would definitely like to go back and would recommend this property to others.

Little Cobbetts - Luxury
Everything you need at this lovely luxury cottage. You don't need to bring anything with you except your clothes! Beach towels provided, books, dvd's, games, jigsaws you name it they have it at this cottage. The hamper on arrival, toiletries, cleaning products were all brilliant and meant we didn't have to pick anything up during our stay. This place is in a very quiet location and has its own parking space right by the door. The Garden is bigger than the images suggest and was plenty big enough for my 2 boys 4 and 6 to run around in and play outside in. Highly recommend this place, it is cosy and luxurious.
Fantastic Little Cottage tucked away off the beaten track. Loved staying here. Dog loved the little enclosed garden. Beautiful location for North Cornwall. A true little gem.
A lovely clean, well equipped and cosy cottage, a great choice for a first Christmas away from home. The weather was absolutely terrible with gale force winds and hail storms but the cottage was so warm it was a joy to arrive back after we did venture outside. Great to have the washer/dryer which was used a lot. Also the slipper bath was heaven. We were worried that the garden wouldn't be secure enough for our 2 medium sized dogs but we really needn't have worried as it was perfectly fine, not a huge garden but this wasn't a problem as the location was great, whether you want walks or beaches, so don't let this put dog owners off. The booking process was easy and the owner was very friendly and helpful, the welcome pack was lovely and definitely the best we have ever had.
