“Marvellous!”
Reviewed 9 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Perfect cosy cottage; modern but characterful. Loved the upside down configuration & large window which meant the living area was warm, light & airy from the sun & takes advantage of the views. We were there in summer but we could tell that it would be very warm & snug in winter as clearly well insulated. Loved the spacious bathroom with large shower. Very comfortable firm bed & sofa (which there often isn't in holiday lets!). Patio perfectly positioned to catch the late afternoon/evening sun & fragranced with lavender plants. Very quiet position. As others have said, location excellent for visiting north & south coasts as well as inland; great to choose where the best weather is before deciding to go out! Camel Trail & steam railway just a walk down the road, not far to walks on Bodmin moor. Glad we weren't put off by closeness to un-picturesque Bodmin as cottage is in separate village & we just visited Bodmin for Asda.
Only requests to achieve complete perfection would be 1) wi-fi, 2) directions as to specific location of cottage in village; requested but advised it was obvious - which it isn't - & given postcode which is no good without a sat. nav. (is almost opposite village school, next to The Retreat), 3) bedroom blind could be replaced to keep light out more.

“Great little property in a good location”

Nice clean, modern property with everything provided and in a great location for walking / bike rides and day trips. The property has new owners in 2013 who were friendly and helpful throughout the stay.

Only downside was no WiFi but managed to find a BT hotspot that worked ;-)
Also not sent any real info about the property before arriving - only got given the postcode for directions.

Looking forward to staying there again ;-)

“Wits End Self catering”
Reviewed 22 June 2012 for a stay in May 2012

This was perfect for us - centrally located for us to go north, south east and west - which we did. We were out everyday touring Devon and Cornwall and then returning home for our own home made dinner.

We washed clothes and they dried while we were out. We watched the TV and saw a couple of movies that were in stock.

Bedroom is on the main floor with a lovely large bathroom. Upstairs is the kitchen which was well appointed and stocked (I enjoyed the welcoming bottle of wine) and a very comfortable living/dining room. Not suitable for people with trouble with stairs but for us perfect.
