The cottage felt like home the moment we walked in

  • 5 of 5

A warm welcome from Jason made us feel right at home. The cottage is tucked away fown a quiet lane, making it an ideal get away from the hustle of town dwelling.

Filled with everything you need for a self cstering stay, with Trago mills providing great produce just down the road. Beds were comfy and so peaceful, we felt truly relaxed at the end of our week. Even the dogs loved it. Truly a special little find. Thankyou.

Owner's Response: We really are a hidden gem. A historic character cottage beautifully renovated. We provide fantastic and comfy accommodation. The rooms are large with high ceilings and beautiful windows with rural country glimpses as views. Our lane is quiet and you will hear the wildlife owls, sheep and spot bats if you sit out on the patio at dusk with a bbq and drink, We work hard to welcome all guests and make sure your stay is memorable.

Just perfect!

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely quirky clean spacious cottage!

Isolated up a country lane that was lined with derelict cars and outbuildings which gave character to the whole setting. Woods for dog walking and sheep in fields made you feel a hundred miles from civilisation, yet the main road was a 10 minute walk.

The Cottage has everything you needed, and you only had to ask the very informative owner Jason if you are missing anything... From a cup of sugar to information on the area to the history of the cottage. The new patio was great. Beds comfy, lovely bed linen.

This lovely place was just perfect for our holiday.

We hope to return again one day.

Excellent character cottage in ideal location

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful cottage was in an excellent location to see many of the great sights in Cornwall.

The cottage itself was very homely and the little garden good for a bbq! Jason and Lisa were also great hosts and were around for any questions and suggestions of places to go.

We would definitely recommend this cottage to others!

Owner's Response: You will find solitude or a chat from us which ever is your preference. We love Cornwall and are happy to share our top tips. Our cottage has been fully redecorated and has new carpets and a wood burner. If the weather is good there are places to bbq and stay in the shade or enjoy the countryside views and sun.

Very peaceful location and full of character.

  • 3 of 5

We had a four night stay and the cottage is well located for visiting both the south and north coast, plus attractions such as the Eden Project.

The visitor information needs updating with instructions on how to work the central heating thermostat as we were quite cold for 24 hours until contacting Jason. Better Tv instructions would be helpful too. Also we had difficulty finding the cottage as the access details are out of date, eg.the ‘brown’ gate is now white!

Very clean and comfortable bedrooms, lovely bed linen. The kitchen needs a little attention as the tap is precariously wobbly and a cupboard door knob comes off in the hand. The kitchen door handle is very loose - all small problems but show a lack of attention. A grill pan and grid would be useful rather than having to use the very grubby oven shelf for grilling. Provide a scourer if you want the frying pan to be cleaned properly! (We bought some). Bathroom needs modernising but lots of hot water for bath or shower.

Sorry to sound critical as we enjoyed our stay overall, but these are all easy things to improve and not expensive. I have experience of this as I have a small property which I rent out.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We have taken your points on board. However, we would like to point out that since your stay last month the house has been painted throughout, the tap is fixed and the kitchen is diaried to be attended to after this busy period. We have fitted new carpets upstairs and to the hallway. The garden gates has been very recently replaced which is why they are now white. Future guests can also now enjoy a woodburner in the living room. We will look at updating the handbook asap and I would urge anyone who is unsure of how to work the unlimted central heating to contact us and not wait 24 hours. We give our contact details to all guests and ask that you contact us immediately if there is anything we can do to help. We are glad you enjoyed your stay. Best wishes Jason and Lisa
