“Perfect in every way”
Reviewed 3 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We really enjoyed our stay at the Picture Window, especially because we got engaged there! Everything about it is perfect. It's beautifully decorated, equipped with everything you could need and we were left a fantastic welcome pack of goodies, including delicious gluten free brownies (thank you Vicky and Nathan, this was really apreciated). The loctaion is absolutely stunning. It was nice being slightly out of town - so peaceful and relaxing - but it's only a short walk to the fun pubs for Mevagissey.

“Beautiful cottage in idyllic, secluded surroundings”
Reviewed 3 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We stayed at the picture window with our young daughter for a week at the end of June. The cottage appealed to us because of the open plan living accommodation and the provision of stair gates!! Something no one else seems to provide! It was also really child friendly.
The cottage was well decorated, spacious, well equipped and is located very close to Mevagissey while remaining very secluded. A lovely welcome pack of Cornish goodies is included in the price as well as delicious homemade cakes!
Definitely recommended if you're after a relaxing break in a great location.

“A real gem of a place!”
Reviewed 19 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We recently stayed in the beautifully appointed 'Picture window', and had a fantastic break; up there with the best! The barn is luxuriously furnished, and has everything you could hope for to make a memorable and relaxing stay. The thoughtful welcome pack really set the scene for the holiday - the homemade cake was a definite hit with our four year old! The setting for the barns is stunning - very idyllic, but within walking distance of Mevagissey and some beautiful beaches. We loved it here, and are already making plans to return later this year.
