Lovely large well equipped cottage for everyone,we had a great long weekend whilst visiting Padstow Christmas Fair.
Cream tea on arrival and fresh flowers a lovely touch,everything required for a lovely stay.
The entrance takes a bit of skilled driving in and out off the road but adds to the fun lol,Windmill cottage certainly lived up to its name,but is a safe haven,didn't use the wood burner even in December as the central heating works well.
All in all great family get away

“A warm, extremely comfortable and welcoming cottage”
Reviewed 29 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Dear Gail,
Thank you so much for providing such a beautiful and comfortable home from home. We visited Windmill and Cornwall for the first time in August 2013. We found the cottage to be prefect in every way for myself, my husband, our two boys (1 & 5), my mum and my mother in law (whom has restricted mobility).
The cottage has an open plan sitting room and kitchen which has a fabulous large wooden table which is great for family meals. Extremely comfy sofas with warm blankets to curl up on to watch DVDs or to play the numerous board and card games. A very welcomed door between the main cottage and the grandmother's wing! This meant the grandmothers weren't disturbed early in the morning by our very lively boys. The downstairs double room with the walk in shower was ideal for my mother in law.
The upstairs bedrooms are light and the beds and bedding are very comfortable indeed. To have three bathrooms with showers and one bath was great for cooling down in the hot August weather or for warming up after a day of bodyboarding in the pouring rain!
The massive enclosed garden was a great hit with our football crazy boys as there was a goal. So while they played we could relax on the sun loungers.
The location of the cottage is fantastic for reaching the wonderful beaches, visiting Padstow, cycling the camel trail, exploring the incredible castles or Bodmin moors.
Hence that is why returned again in August 2014 and the only negative part is we had to leave.
With best wishes,
Allanah, Declan, Joseph, Rafferty, Helen and Pat.
