I cannot recommend The Linhay highly enough. The house is perfect and the garden, sunny and secure for a dog. The owner, Louise, is a wealth of information and always ready to help with anything you may need. We will definitely be returning to Cosawes Barton.
Thank you so much for this lovely review! Looking forward to seeing you again very soon.x
Great accommodation, friendly welcome. Would definitely recommend to family and friends. Ideal base for travel around Cornwall.
Good location in lovely grounds
Fab location. Good all round accommodation for what was required. Down side was the hardness of the beds and the soft pillows. Alternative to feather pillows would have been useful. Good acces to West Cornwall.. directions to location could have been better not easy to find ...
Hi Chris - thanks so much for your lovely review. On the points that you mention - the cottage should have had both feather and hypoallergenic pillows - Having checking it, you are quite right - I think these have been redistributed between the cottages....so thank you so much for pointing this out - this has been rectified! Warm regards Louise
Linhay June 2017
Very clean, modern and comfortable accommodation and the hostess was v friendly. She allowed us to bring all 3 dogs and the Linhay had a large patio'd garden with a BBQ (which we used everyday despite the weather! ).We were allowed to exercise our dogs around their grounds was very useful. Only a few negatives to say, the local pub had shut down, the lounge couldn't comfortably accommodate 6 adults and unfortunately there were no public foothpaths from Ponsanooth which meant we had to drive to different locations each day to walk.
Hi Kirsty - thank so much for leaving this lovely review - glad you had a good time! Just to say the village pub is very much alive and well! Perhaps it was just closed at the time you wanted to visit? Hope to see you again soon! Louise x
A truly wonderful experience!
We could not rate the cottage more highly. The owners have thought of everything, down to the tiniest details. Immaculately clean. Excellent location for exploring Cornwall. Beautiful grounds for the children to explore. They loved collecting the chicken eggs and eating them for breakfast! Possibly the nicest vacation rental we have ever stayed in, and we've stayed in a few! Will be recommending Lindhay to friends.
Wow Melissa thank you so much for this wonderful review. It was a real pleasure to have you stay with us! Louise x
Perfect in every way
The Linhay is the perfect retreat to get away from it all, perfectly situated to visit the north and south coasts of Cornwall County. The cottage was so cosy and warm in the depths of winter, enabling us to return back from days out walking and visiting beaches and be able to warm ourselves by the lovely fire. The cottage was so well equiped and it was lovely to kow that we had the owners to hand to help us if we had any problems.
Thank you so much for this! It was a real pleasure to meet you! So glad you had a nice time with us! Hope to see you again..
Ponsanooth is a traditional Cornish village with a very particular heritage. It is home to the Kennel Vale Nature Reserve – a fabulous unspolit place to explore, walk and take in the wildlife and scenery of this lovely place. It also provides a great base for exploring the county more generally, being equidistant between Truro and Falmouth as well as being only a short drive to the North coast. Cosawes Barton is approximately 15 minutes' drive from Falmouth, 20 minutes from Truro and 30 minutes from the North Coast.
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 Wednesday & Saturday and there are also arts & craft markets on Saturdays. There is a wonderful range of shopping for the visitor including a wide range of more specialist stores. It really is worth a wander through the back streets and alleys to find some fabulous little independent shops and boutiques.
Falmouth is one of Cornwall's most popular places to visit because of its unique mix of attractions, water sports, beaches, history and places 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.
For those wanting to take in the fresh air of Cornwall and blow away all stress, the opportunities for enjoying your time in this location are almost endless. From the sailing courses at Mylor Harbour or Stithians reservoir which are available throughout the summer (ideal for older children looking for an active holiday), kayaking days, fishing at Argal Reservoir, glorious cliff walks on the coastal path or cycling the old mining trails – simply take your pick.
The choice of local sandy beaches is also stunning – from Gyllingvase & Swanpool in Falmouth which are wonderfully sunny south facing spots, to the quieter and more secluded beaches of the Roseland (a particular favourite of the children of the current owners) which are only a ride on the King Harry Ferry away. You can take a longer boat trip to beautiful St Mawes for the day or sail around the estuary stopping off at either Trelissick Gardens or Smugglers Cottage for a cream tea!
