Excellent property

  • 5 of 5

Veronica cottage was a delight from the moment we arrived. The cottage was warm and inviting. The beds and bedrooms were very comfortable, bathrooms spotlessly clean, kitchen had all utensils we required. There was milk in the fridge and packets of biscuits waiting. The cottage is located within easy walking distance to the village with shops, bars and restaurants waiting to be explored. Lovely holiday and we will be returning soon.

Owner's Response: Sorry I didn't get to meet you. Hope the golf was good, the weather was quite kind however, nothing worse than playing golf in the rain. It would be lovely to have you back, can't guarantee a film crew next time though. Best wishes to you all.

Lovely house

  • 5 of 5

Veronica cottage is home from home, tasteful, well equipped, wondrous colour design in kitchen, beautiful garden flowers, could spend hours exploring the amazing varieties.

Great base for north Cornwall touring if that is what is wanted

Tintagel and its church are most interesting, and Trebarwith strand not to be missed.

We had a restful break

We recommend Veronica cottage without hesitation, and the owner is warm and friendly, a good woman!

Perfect get away

  • 4 of 5

There was everything we could want at this cottage. The owner is a lovely lady who is unobtrusive but very friendly. There is plenty to do in this area and the cottage was lovely to go back to each evening, and we were lucky enough to have very good weather so we could enjoy sitting outside on the patio.

Outstanding cottage in a beautiful area

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful and outstanding cottage just on the edge on Tintagel, within easy walking distance of all that the village has to offer.

The cottage offered excellent facilities, a real home away from home, we were given a very warm welcome, the owner was most accommodating with out earlier than estimated arrival on the Saturday and it was an absolute pleasure to meet Mr Ginger.

Veronica cottage is maintained to a very high standard and exceptionally clean and very well equipped, due to the time of the year not everything in the village was open but the local shops offering locally sourced produce was refreshing and the King Arthurs Inn does exceptionally good food and of course the Cornish pasties are a must!

Owner's Response: Hi Annie It was lovely to meet you and your family. Hope you had a safe journey home. Hopefully Mr. G didn't outstay his welcome and your kind words will be passed to him which is sure to increase his attitude. He thinks he's rather special anyway!!!! You are more than welcome to return anytime. Have a good summer. Pamx

A lovely cottage in a quiet peaceful area.

  • 5 of 5

We (wife, daughter, husband grandson and dog) stayed for Christmas 2016. The owner (Pam) had decorated the house and we had a Christmas tree. It really set the scene for Christmas. The cottage was lovely and warm. Unfortunately I had a bad cold and had to return home early. But my daughter and family stayed on .

Thank you Pam for making our Christmas special. Roland and Julie.
