“Simply... amazing”
Reviewed 13 July 2018 for a stay in June 2018

Can’t really say anything more than just an amazing place to stay. Loved every minute!! You will not be disappointed.

Fixtures & fittings & accommodation are just perfect. Close to all the important things. The cottage has all mod cons, the cottage garden was superb, Penrose itself is a sleepy, magical, tranquil heaven. Close to all amazing local places. We landed on the weather but it’s magical rain or shine.

I can’t write anything bad, if you have booked... lucky you. If you are thinking about booking... do it.

We had the most magical time. Love this place! Thank you Elaine xx

Well, what can I say...thank you for sharing what is my little bit of heaven too! So glad you were able to enjoy Dormouse - as much as I do when I go down there. I wanted a 'home from home' for myself - but I also wanted it for my guests. A little bit of luxury never did anybody any harm. Come back and enjoy again. Kind regards Elaine

“Absolutely Fabulous”
Reviewed 18 October 2017 for a stay in October 2017

We stayed in the stunning ‘Dog Friendly’ Dormouse Cottage, Penrose last week and were completely overwhelmed at how beautiful it was – every room was perfect, the attention to detail was extraordinary and the courtyard garden was picture perfect!! Everything you could possibly need was provided to make our stay extremely comfortable. It is the cottage we always wished we could own!
If you ever fancy a Cornwall getaway this is the place to stay – it’s in a very peaceful village ideally located near Padstow. We walked endlessly on the seven nearby broad sandy beaches which are quite extraordinary – all totally dog friendly and all the restaurants and cafes allow dogs as well – we’ve never been anywhere like it – the icing on the cake was the hot shower hose waiting outside in our cottage garden for washing the dogs down when we got home every day - very wet and sandy!
Do try The Catch Restaurant at Mawgan Porth and the Beach Hut at Watergate Bay for dog friendly dining! Also a walk around the path, outside the ancient convent at St Mawgan is magical.
Thank you Eileen and David for a brilliant stay – we’d adore to stay again – if you’ll have us!!.

Dear Jill and Brett, thank you so much for your lovely words.n Yes of course, we would love you to come and stay again, dont leave it too long. I have a black lab called Nell and I never understand why people with dogs are penalized by the poor standard of accommodation that they often have to stay in - if they want to take their dearest four legged friends on holiday with them. We have been going for 4 years now, and the cottage is as gorgeous as the day we first opened to guests. All our guests look after Dormouse beautifully for us, and we keep it lovely for all the following guests too. Thank you again. Kind regards Elaine

“5* Holiday Cottage”
Reviewed 11 October 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Dormouse cottage was great base for a week spent in Cornwall. The cottage has everything you could need as well as being finsihed to a 5* standard with all mod cons and a full sky package (which we appreciated when the heavens opended one day). We loved the fact it was a lovely blend of old and new. We mainly based ourselves in the kitchen/diner area and never sat in the lounge the whole week! which was a shame. The village itself has nothing so you must drive to st merryn to the pub and shops etc...There are numerous (7 i think!) dog friendly stunning beaches within a 10 minute drive. We loved going to watch the sun go down at constantine bay. We will definatly be back but may try early spring next time so we can have use of the lovely woodburners. Great accomodation which is dog friendly. Highly recommend and communication from Elaine was first class

thank you so much for your lovely review. Do come back in the Spring, we have wonderful times at that time of year, all the hedgerows are bursting withspring flowers and blooms and the beaches are fresh and wonderful and fairly empty. So glad you enjoyed the full SKY package, so nice to tuck yourself away for a quiet evening in and a good movie!!

“Perfect family holiday retreat.”
Reviewed 5 August 2017 for a stay in July 2017

The Dormouse Cottage was an absolutely beautiful,family and dog friendly holiday home. On arrival we were wowed by the beautiful garden and the whole interior of the cottage. We enjoyed friendly chats with the local farmer whole told us a bit about the area. As this was our first trip to Cornwall the cottage provided a very comfortable home from home and the informative welcome pack gave us wonderful ideas on where to visit. We highly recommend a visit !
