From the moment we arrived (having followed the VERY accurate directions on the web site) we felt at home and relaxed. No fuss no bother...every thing was ready for us on arrival. The cream tea and supplies of tea, coffee and milk were a welcome sight after a long journey.
We lit the fire with the logs provided and RELAXED. We were very lucky with the weather in Easter week. Bright sunshine most days but my goodness it was cold - returning to the cottage each day and lighting the fire was lovely and cosy.
The location is superb. A 5 minute walk down to the start of the Camel Trail - the trail was enjoyed every morning by my hubby and dog - but probably a 15 minute walk back up the drive!! The views from the rooms lovely. In summer I would think the garden is a great place to relax with a cheeky glass of something. Very quiet but near to local villages, beaches, towns and attractions.We easily reached Land's End, Eden, St Ives. Padstow is only 30 mins away and we enjoyed a couple of nice meals at Stein's and Paul Ainsworth (well worth a look in). Nearby St Tudy has a lovely pub called the St Tudy Inn - lovely food.
The cottage is well equipped and the kitchen is modern and clean and if there is anything you need that isn't there Maureen is happy to provide (want a cafetiere? No problem!!). The only down side is that my hubby is 6ft 4 and the head height in the shower was too low but I am 5 ft 11 and I fitted fine. He just had baths so all was OK. There is PLENTYof storage and glory be - LOADS of drawers in the rooms (why oh why do most places have 2 drawers or less?!!)
All in all we had a lovely trip and enjoyed every minute. Thank you Maureen and Gary for making it such an excellent stay. Hope to be back soon.
