A small yet quality, clean property that is well located within the small town and to points of interest in the area. Appreciated welcome treats in the fridge on arrival and the variety of spices and oils in the kitchen for our use. Kitchen is nicely appointed to be able to cook in the cottage. Wireless worked a treat throughout, almost a must now when travelling with young adults.Excellent guidance and instructions from owners about the property, how to access, and about activities nearby. Would recommend, and perhaps more importantly, would be amenable to staying at again if in the area.

Süßes Cottage in ruhiger Umgebung

  • 4 of 5

Wir waren im Mai in dem wirklich süßen, alten Cottage von Julia und Neil bei erstaunlich gutem Wetter. Das Cottage ist mit viel Liebe eingerichtet, die Betten sind herrlich kuschelig und man hat alles was man braucht, inclusive eines "Betthupferls" von Julia und Neil, die rührend um das Wohlergehen ihrer Gäste besorgt sind.

Der nächste Pub ist nicht weit weg und man kann dort tatsächlich gut essen!

Einziger Nachteil ist, dass die Zufahrtsstraßen sehr eng und steil sind, so dass das Auto etwas entfernt auf der Hauptstraße geparkt werden sollte, um keine Schrammen zu riskieren. Innerhalb des Hauses befindet sich zu den Schlafzimmern eine recht steile Treppe - für Besucher mit Handicap daher nicht geeignet.

Wir würden jederzeit wieder hierher kommen und haben uns großartig erholt.

cosy home in the middle of cornwall

  • 4 of 5

Eden cottage is a very nice, cosy and well equipped home for holidays. Big enough for five people and comfortable. Coming from overheated and dried out germany we didn't expect to use the heating in August, but we got used to it quickly. We enjoyed our stay here very much. The owners helped at once with a little problem and kept in contact with us to be sure we were well.

Cosy little cottage

  • 5 of 5

Julia has furnished and decorated the cottage beautifully. She left chocolates, flowers and a card for us upon arrival. Julia also ensured we had basic provisions such as milk, fruit, tea and coffee. She text us when we arrived and when we left, ensuring we were happy. We had a wonderful time. Thank you!

Lovely cosy cottage - a Cornish retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at Eden Cottage during half term. The cottage provided everything we could want for our family for 4 and Julia was very friendly and accommodating. We loved the wood burner (despite the mild weather) and really appreciated the personal touches. Would stay there again.

CCC - Charming Cornwall Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a perfect stay at Eden Cottage and the house and place was really lovely. It was very clean and especially the arrival was beautiful: flowers and a personal welcome card as well as some good starters in the fridge makes us feel at home ! Everything was available: shower gel and shampoo, coffee, tea, fresh local rasperries, duck eggs and milk and even tabs for the dishwasher...

Julia and Neil were always very responsive, didn't hestitate to help us when our son got sick and are very helpful on all questions - in sum: perfect hosts !

Thanks again, Julia & Neil, we highly recommend your cottage and it was really nice to meet you personally !
