The Emerald was a truly fantastic place for us to spend our honeymoon in Cornwall. Tim and his team could not have been better hosts; always very friendly and incredibly helpful if we needed anything. The surroundings are great, it is a really peaceful place to enjoy a

We stopped at the Drift holiday home - part of a 7 house holiday location with swimming pool, tennis court, childrens play area, hammock, gold fish pond and so much more. A lovely quiet location surrounded by trees, rabbits and the occasional fox. The house was luxurious and

This was our second trip to The Emerald (we stayed in Drift 3 years ago) and it is still amazing. This visit was for us, our two children, both sets of grandparents and our dog. Melody Farm has a very different feel - it seems like you own the world around you! The house was

We stayed in Coast and it was fantastic! This really is a 5 star retreat. Everything was spotlessly clean with contemporary decor and fully kitted out with every appliance/ accessory you could possibly need. The grounds, hot tub and pool were really well maintained. My friend

Hello Thanks for the question. Yes, the suites are fully equipped and include a kettle and also a nespresso machine and we provide teabags, sugar and coffee pods to go with them. The kitchen has all the other things you'd expect - fridge, freezer, hob, oven, microwave and there's a utility area with washing machine (and powder), tumble dryer, ironing board and iron, clothes horse and pegs and so on. Hopefully we've got most of what people need whilst they stay with us covered. Hope this is helpful and that we can welcome you to stay next year. Many thanks Tim

Hi Jo Many thanks for your question. I'm afraid we don't provide bath robes. But we do provide bath towels (nice big ones!), as well as hand towels and flannels. We also provide towels for use at our swimming pool and in the hot tubs (which feature in two of our properties, Cedar and Fern). Hope this helps - please let us know if you have any further queries Thanks Tim

"This is not a hotel but self catering - well worth going to - we will be back"
"They are all Good!"
"Any cottage for luxury, Shepherds Huts for glamping with on-suite"
"Any of them will be great...but go for a hot tub if available..there's 2 properties with them"
"We stayed in Drift as there were six of us and a dog, but all of the accommodation looked wonderful."
