Quiet country cottage.
The cottage was quite well furnished. The double bed was very good. One of the single beds was poor, the other was just about serviceable. The path down to the cottage was steep, with a lot of moss growing on it, making it slippery. Great care needed when walking down to the cottage in the dark. However, the cottage was very quiet, with no street light pollution, ideal for a relaxing holiday.
Return visit to St Breoke
It was good to return to St Breoke, a village I have stayed in before and like very much. The location close to Wadebridge and major roads is very good but it is quiet and tucked away, which is ideal.
I liked the cottage very much and thought it had been well restored. The ground floor layout is particularly successful and the rear garden is delightful. The main or master bedroom is a lovely room and pleasantly furnished. The second room is however extremely cramped and really only suitable for small children. It would have been good if that had been clearer. The bathroom was ok but the lighting was poor, with dead or erratic bulbs.
There was an issue with the boiler which was not working when we arrived and we thus had no hot water the first day. However the owner was very (and promptly) helpful about trying to get it rectified but we did have to spend the rest of our stay topping the water levels up so that the boiler would fire. It was a minor inconvenience but one we could have done without.
the kitchen is very well equipped and good to work in, especially for two keen cooks!
The road to the house is not lit and dark stock. superficially cleaned.
The housekeeping is very friendly and helpful
Private parking was not possible on site (but was adviced on booking Portal)
Thank you for your review, I wonder if you would be kind enough to email me a little more details as to why you gave a 2 for cleanliness, I would like to pass these details onto our housekeeper. With regards to your comments about the parking, I have checked online and it states that parking is available 20 yards away from property, sorry if you were expecting parking outside the cottage. My email address is email@example.com

A lovely cottage in a quiet well located village
This is a nice cottage in a great location for easy touring of Cornwall. It is in a suburb location in the village which gives to a quiet and restful stay. It is in a good condition with everything that you need, the only comment I would make is the age of the TV and DVD player, these could do with an update, to a bigger modern TV and blu ray player, as we were there in summer we didn't use these at all but I feel that if there were any wet days or winter stays then this could be a disappointment.
All in all a great cottage, one that I would feel very happy to visit again.
Thank you for your lovely review, we are glad you enjoyed your stay in Cornwall.
Nice location but issues
Nice location, parking up a steep hill from the house. The property felt damp and there was mold in places. Wifi provided but interferes with the TVs and the service is patchy. Okay but over priced.
St Breock is a delightful hamlet just west of Wadebridge and immediately south of the Royal Cornwall Show Ground which hosts the agricultural show in early June every year. The 13th century Church is situated at the bottom of the valley.
Wadebridge was originally a market town. It has an amazing 15th century bridge with 17 arches over the River Camel, which is definitely worth a visit. It is said the bridge was built on wool as this was how the wealthy landowners in the area made their money. From the day the bridge was built the town became known as Wadebridge. The Royal Cornwall Show ground at Wadebridge hosts the county show every June, come rain or shine, opened each year by a member of the Royal Family. Cornish Farmers have had to diversify in recent years and so has the show, but they have kept their traditional roots with steam engines being shown next to the shiny new high-tech tractors. It's not every day you get to see formation JCB digger dancing in the main ring.Both Wadebridge and nearby Camelford are centrally located in order to explore the nearby hills and moors. Wadebridge is the perfect base, being the half way point, from which to discover the Camel Trail, a walk and cycle track following the old railway route from Bodmin to Padstow. There is wonderful scenery and plenty of wildlife, including fantastic sightings of wading birds to see on this serene trail and bikes can be hired from Bodmin, Wadebridge or Padstow. From Padstow you could take a boat trip across the Camel Estuary to Rock, and lounge on the beautiful beach that stretches all the way around to Daymer Bay. The National Lobster Hatchery neighbours Rick Steins empire in Padstow.The National Trust have three properties nearby, Lanhydrock House, Trerice and Carnewas and the dramatic cliffs and beach at Bedruthan Steps. Or if you fancy something different try a tour around the Camel Valley Vineyard, Cornish Wine has been growing in stature around the world and their sparkling wines are truly stunning, having picked up lots of international awards, go for a tasting you will not be disappointed!Wadebridge boasts a selection of pubs, shops and a cinema. Padstow is of course home to Rick Stein's empire and is definitely worth a visit. There is a large Tesco store approximately 1/2 mile from the cottage. There are some wonderful walks nearby, explore the stunning coastal footpath with magnificent views over secluded coves with golden beaches and crashing surf, towering headlands or alternatively head inland and explore the rugged beauty of Bodmin Moor.
