staying at post box cottage
this is our sixth visit at the cottage,and we have loved our stays but we have noticed that it is getting very tired looking,the pillows are very hard and one of the sofas is passed its best.
Our biggest complaint is that when they took our booking but did not let us know they are building four houses right next door, the noise with all the work going on was really bad, heavy traffic passing our windows, I feel for any one going in the summer months.
I feel we should have been told and then we would definetly not have stayed.
On a good note when we complained to cornwall cottages the lady we spoke to was very pleasant and helpful.
I would recommend to any one wanting a nice peaceful holiday this is not for you.
But again on a positive note it is in a lovely part of cornwall,close to some lovely places
This was our second visit to this lovely cottage and it did not fail to please us very comfortable and warm especially as the nights were a lot cooler than of late and plenty of hot water very spaciops also a pretty little garden to sit out in weather permitting.
Perranwell station is a good location to get to several places Falmouth Truro etc there are National Trust properties to go to also.
Lovely cream tea on arrival was much appreciated.
Well decorated and roomy cottage,everything that we needed was available. Warm and cozy .Lovely
It was value for money well equiped in the kitchen
The cottage was comfortable. the garden was safe for our Grandson and our Daughter's Dog. We felt the location for us was good as it was near many attractions and our friends. The cottage was well equipped for a family with plenty of plates and cups and glasses rather than having to wash everything up all the time. The cottage was clean. We loved the sunken Bath.
A wonderful cottage
The cottage is lovely. It is spacious, comfortable and well equipped. The location is perfect for exploring the Falmouth estuary and surrounding area. We had a wonderful holiday and would certainly stay there again.
Post Box Cottage May 2019
The cottage is tucked away in the little village of Perranwell Station, a stopping point on the Truro to Falmouth rail line. The principal reason for choosing this locality was its proximity to Helston where we, two married couples, attended The Flora Day and Truro for the International Male Choir Festival. Padstow is a 45 minute drive to the north coast where we also went for "Obby Oss" Day. We were there for 2 weeks and managed to visit many other of Cornwall's attractions and coastal towns during our stay.
In the village there's a little shop/post office and a great pub called The Royal Oak. Make sure you have a meal there. They provide small serves for older folk who can't quite manage bigger meals. The quality of the food is excellent.
The accommodation was perfect for us. Very cosy rooms/bedrooms and a kitchen with every utensil one could wish for. The bathrooms/showers were very well appointed. The recyclables were a bit of a mystery as to where to put them and when they were collected, but that's about the only matter of any import.
Altogether to be highly recommended, especially for couples.
Perranwell Station is equidistant between Truro to the north and Falmouth to the south. Both are approximately 15 minutes drive away.
The Cathedral City of Truro is in the heart of Cornwall and offers a wealth of facilities for the visitor. Dominated by the stunning cathedral, it is one of the south west's most attractive cities. Lemon Quay plays host to many events throughout the year including the Cornwall Food & Drink Festival in the Autumn and the famous Truro Fatstock Show just before Christmas. Regular farmers markets occur every Wednesdays & Saturday and there are also arts & craft markets on Saturdays. There is a wonderful range of shopping for the visitor including all the regular high street stores in addition to Marks & Spencer, Tescos & Sainsburys, but also a wide range of more specialist stores. It really is worth a wander through the back streets and alleys to find some fabulous little boutiques.
Truro has a superb range of restaurants from Bustopher Jones & Mannings on Lemon Street to the always popular Pizza Express. There are lively bars, pubs & nightclubs including the Old Ale House, a busy Wetherspoons and the infamous L2 if you are so inclined! Falmouth is one of Cornwall's most popular places to visit because of it's unique mix of attractions, water sports, beaches, history and place to eat. The National Maritime Museum Cornwall and Pendennis Castle are both high on visitors lists of places to visit and the views from Pendennis on a fine day a truly magical. Falmouth is the sailing capital of Cornwall with its spectacular deep water natural harbour offering a haven for both cruisers and racers. Many events are held through the summer culminating in the famous Falmouth Regatta Week and associated shore side events. You can enjoy the fireworks from your very own balcony!
The beaches at Gyllingvase & Swanpool are coarse sand and are wonderfully sunny south facing spots. You can ride the ferry to beautiful St Mawes for the day or take a delightful trip around the estuary stopping off at either Trelissick Gardens or Smugglers Cottage for a cream tea! There are plenty of places to eat & drink in Falmouth and recently Rick Stein has opened his Fish & Chip Restaurant & Oyster Bar at Discovery Quay adding to the superb mix across the town.
