“Perfect base for the week”
Reviewed 29 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

The owners Kathy and Brian were lovely and we really enjoyed our stay. Perfect place to stay if you want to visit Cornwalll, and coming off a cruise it was great there was a washing machine and parking for the car. Would love to return .

“Highly recommended homely accommodation”

Shasta Annex is a great place to stay in a beautiful location. We received a warm welcome from our host who provided not only a welcome pack but also wine and roses which were much appreciated. The accommodation was most comfortable, clean and homely and we would certainly hope to return at some future date.

“A delightful place to stay!”
Reviewed 21 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

This was a great base for exploring the far west of Cornwall. There were also lots of lovely walks along the coast and beside the Helford River which meant that some days we didn't use the car at all. The accommodation was very pleasant - a comfortable bed and lots of hot water and a lovely outlook over the beautiful garden. The hosts were very friendly and there was an excellent welcome pack and some lovely flowers waiting for us. The village pub was less than 10 minutes walk and served good bar meals. All in all we had a great week.

“Perfect property and location”
Reviewed 26 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

My husband and I travelled from North Wales to stay in Shasta Annex. The property is delightful with everything there that you need topped off with a great welcome from Kathy. Shasta Annex is in a great location if you enjoy walking and is on a main bus route into Falmouth - although how the buses manage to get down some of the lanes I don't know. We were very lucky with the weather and were able to enjoy looking at Kathy's beautiful garden. We will definately be returning - this time with swimming and snorkelling kit. I would highly recommend this property. many thanks again.

“Arelaxing place from which to explore the wonderful Cornish coast.”
Reviewed 19 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We really enjoyed our stay at Shasta. The annex was very comfortable and well equipped and easily coped with us and our two dogs. The outlook over the garden from the lounge was stunning and Kathy and Brian were great holiday landpersons! We hope to be able to return next year for our annual visit to this lovely part of the UK.

“Lovely, comfortable accommodation, great attention to detail with hospitable, friendly hosts”
Reviewed 23 May 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Enjoyed our stay very much, a haven to return to after exploring many of Cornwall's scenic
walks and towns. The annex was cosy and contained all we needed to be self contained.
Especially appreciated the little extras provided on our arrival and enjoyed Kathy and Terry's hospitality and friendliness. Aso enjoyed delightful garden setting.

“Shasta Home from Home”
Reviewed 23 January 2014 for a stay in September 2013

Shasta Annexe is a lovely clean accommodation with views over the owners beautiful garden. Visitors are allowed in the garden-a must for enthusiastic gardeners. The annexe is attached to the owners Bungalow but you feel as though you have the place to yourselves. The annexe is located in Mawnan Smith, which is a warm and friendly Cornish Village. The location of the annexe is perfect and within walking distance of both the Red Lion Pub and other useful services for your stay. Visits to The Helford Passage are a must. Both the Trebah and Carwinion Gardens are located near by and both must be on your agenda.
The owner Kathy is very warm and welcoming and she provides an excellent service and welcoming pack.
We have visited Shasta for 2 years and have always felt welcome and part of the community.
I would highly recommend a visit.
