The grounds are well keeped the barn was warm well equipt ideal for surrounding area. Good base for a busy or chilled hols
Location was lovely and upstairs living area was very comfortable. Downstairs bedrooms felt and smelled a bit damp and bathroom could do with updating.
I’m sorry you were disappointed with the property. I appreciate you had a child and a baby. You used the outside rotary airer on the first day only. We assume that for the rest of your holiday you dried all your washing inside, despite the weather being good, this would account for the property smelling damp.
Excellent all round
Lovely cottage in a beautiful location. Pam and Nigel were excellent hosts, ensuring you had everything you required for a great holiday, really friendly and very welcoming. The cottage is in a lovely rural area, central for north or south coasts, nice and quiet for relaxing after a day of exploring Cornwall. Would definitely be going back to this place in the future.
The owners meet you to provide an orientation and are around but only if needed. The accommodations are very spacious and modern. The location is near to so much to do I wish we could have stayed longer.
A wonderfully relaxing holiday
What a great holiday let. It is the most relaxing holiday that my wife and I have had. Nigel and Pam were brilliant.
A perfect little cottage in the middle of Cornwall for your holidays
The cottage provides everything you need for your holidays in Cornwall. It is a perfect getaway to see all the interesting spots in middle and south Cornwall. A nice little terrace with a set of garden furniture gives you the opportunity to enjoy some time near the cottage as well.
Our hosts Nigel and Pam have been very welcoming, we got a welcome package by mail right after our booking and even have received some messages via cellular phone closer to our arrival with very helpful information like how to get to the cottage.
We can recommend this cottage to every party of up to 4 people without any reservations.
The village of Tregony (3.5 miles away) in Cornwall is often referrred to as the 'gateway to the Roseland'. The exceptionally wide Fore Street is a relic from the days when this was a busy port and market town with considerable traffic. The port has long since silted up due in part to china clay workings up stream, but Tregony has retained its charm. Tregony has an unusual clock tower on Fore Street and the seventeenth century almshouses which boast an unusual wooden gallery. The site of a twelfth century Norman castle known as ‘Treg-ney' from which the village got its name is situated on Tregony Hill.
Tregony has a good local convenience store, plus a Post Office and good village pub in the Kings Arms. For really good food, we recommend the Kings Head at Ruan Lanihorne, only a short drive away. The city of Truro (10 miles away) with it's great shopping including a Tesco, Sainsburys & Marks & Spencers, is within a 15 minute drive of Tregony.
St Austell (5 miles away) was once the major producer of the worlds China Clay, now with cheaper foreign imports the industry is in decline but The Wheal Martyn China Clay Museum set in two former working pits depicts the countryside in years gone by. Wet weather activities could include the visitor centre at St Austell Brewery, sampling beers and ales made on the premises. The brewery has recently started exporting their products across the Tamar River to England, so you may just find where your favourite brew is made.
With large attractions such as the Eden Project on the outskirts of St Austell, The Lost Gardens of Heligan a 20 minute drive towards Mevagissey, and Charlestown mere minutes away it provides an ideal base for your travels. The coastal town of Fowey is a simple 20 minutes drive past the China Clay port of Par, offering fabulous restaurants, galleries and gift shops. A short car ferry across the river takes you on to Polruan. Daphne du Maurier spent her later years in properties in and around Fowey, a festival of her works takes place each May.
