    "door hard to unlock, bi-fold doors only one opened,towels/furnishing not up to RR usual high standard"
    Confirmed Guest – 19 Jul 2017
    "Beautiful cottage, though access by car is tricky up a very steep narrow road. You'd struggle with a long or low vehicle. Unfortunate that the larger section of bi-folding doors were broken, but at least we could still use the deck. It would be helpful if information was given about where to find the separate utility room and freezer, as we had to phone to find out. We didn't think to look in a separate building! There was also no information about recycling, and the bin wasn't emptied when it was supposed to be.Otherwise, can't really fault it. It is out of the way, but only a short walk to local amenities. The local shop is very well stocked with essentials. The views are amazing, and it was lovely to be able to lie in bed listening to the sea."

    "The accommodation itself could have been better from a cleanliness point of view in that the floors were dirty and the inside of the drawers were dirty. (I had to clean them upon my arrival) the second bedroom lacked drawer space for jumpers. The dining area was very good with the sea views and all the kitchen equipment was exceptional."

    "A very well equipped, superb property. We struggled to think of anything that was missing!! The only issue we had was with the parking. For a large car it is very difficult to turn around in the space provided and this could perhaps be made clearer in the description in the brochure."
    Confirmed Guest
    "A beautiful house with a stunning view and kept spotlessly clean. The driveway was a little difficult to navigate for the faint-hearted but there was plenty of car parking a short distance away."
    Confirmed Guest
    "Beautiful property but with a few minor problems shelf in fridge broken no shelves in showers and kitchen rubbish bin had not been emptied upon arrival. My main complaint would have been workmen arriving at 8.15am to fix a hinge on bi-fold doors which I had agreed to they were there for three hours having removed all of the doors(a little chilly) and trying to make breakfast was a little difficult. But a lovely house in a lovely position."
    Confirmed Guest
    "Not as nice as we had expected from outside but absolutely stunning once inside and the views were wonderful. Improved parking for two cars would be much appreciated, our hire car was enormous to hold people and all our luggage from NZ. Even if it is a bit further away from the property, it would help."

    "What a fabulous relaxing holiday! We've totally chilled out and recharged our batteries. Had a great day out at Porthleven food festival, wonderful day in Padstow, walked along the cliff path from Downderry to Black Rock Beach, scared ourselves silly at Bodmin Jail, learned amazing facts at the monkey sanctuary and had a fabulous lunch in Looe. Finished off our trip with a great meal in the 'Waves Bar' in Seaton. Thank you owners and housekeeper - the house had everything we needed and excveptional views. Found ourselves falling asleep to the rhythmic sound of the sea - what more could we wish for."
    Sarah & Ticoixi
    "A fantastic home, thank you. Places worth a visit: Port Eliot House (10 minutes away) open 2pm-5pm. The best house and gardens we have ever visited. The Wave Restaurant, just down the road. Amazing views and fod. Polperro (45 minutes away). A pretty seaside village by the sea. Shipwreck Centre - Charlestown near St Austell. Well worth a visit, so much to see from hundreds of years of shipwreck treasures. Padstow (1 hour away). A really pretty fishing village in S.W Cornwall. Port Isaac (1 hour 15 minutes). The village where Doc Martin is filmed. Lanhydrock House and gardens (40 minutes) - Amazing 50 plus rooms."

    "We don't want to leave. We have had a fantastic few days here. We explored the beaches in the village, went for a couple of runs and the country park, went to Looe and the Lost Gardens of Heligan. We also got up to Dartmoor on our only bad weather day. We ate out well - the Blue Plate in the village - excellent. Cornerhouse in Looe, Rugglestone Inn on Dartmoor - excellent and the Treby Arms on the way down in Devon - really good. We are off to explore Slapton Sands on the way back, via the Millbrook Inn which is always lovely."

    "Wild and wet, but wonderful. Thank you."

    "Thank you so much - beautiful house in a fantastic location for exploring Cornwall! We had a lovely half term holiday with trips to Falmouth, Land's End, Bodmin and the Eden Project. We would definitely recommend visiting the Ede Project - it was the highlight of the trip for our two boys (although they also enjoyed playing in the rock pools at the beach here!). We never made it to the Blue Plate in the village as dined in on our nights here enjoying the terrace and the view, but would recommend Bosvenna Restaurant in Bodmin - had lunch there, lovely food and very child-friendly. Thanks again for a great holiday."
    "It just doesn't get better than this!! Don't want to leave...if you find us hiding in the cupboard at Christmas don't be surprised!!! A million thanks for such a treat, we will NEVER forget such a happy week."

    "Thank you so much. We have all had a fantastic time in this wonderful space. I came with good friends as part of a birthday celebration and have simply had one of the best holidays in the country, and what a beautiful part of the country it is. The view is equal to any I have enjoyed abroad and we have been pleased with the wonderful weather for the time of year. We look forward to returning to the S41679 soon!"

    "It had been a most enjoyable week! We have enjoyed the lovely house, the kids arguing over the pink chair. Informing me its comfy, cosy and colourful. We are so grateful for all the wonderful places nearby like the beach and the restaurants. We went to Looe (15-20 minutes away), lots of lovely shops and good places to go crabbing. The Eden Project, its amazing. The Biomes are amazing, the rainforest one in particular is extremely hot so wear light clothes. They've recently opened the walk over, so you can see things from a birds eye view. Our week has been very enjoyable and we have enjoyed every minute. Thank you so much. MH, Chelmsford."

    "Well this house speaks for itself really, so I won't go on about the views! So here's what we did:- The National Maritime Museum, Plymouth - Brilliant! Watch in the very last tank as there is a turtle who hides a lot, so if your patient he'll pop out. A fab, clean café and a good selection of good healthy hot and cold food.Talland Bay - Worth the drive, offers Kyack hire and a cheap beach car park at 2.50 per day. Saltram House (NT) - brilliant as ever, plus a well stocked restaurant. GB, Scotland"

    "Wild weather, but great fun watching it in this very beautiful property! We have visited Looe, Polperro, Fowey, Polruan and Mevagissey. Enjoyed the National Marine Aquarium and the fabulous Eden Project. A lovely welcome at Inn on the Shore and the Blue Plate. The kids have loved the beach, the space to play and watching the surfers. Unfortunately the fishermen in our party didn't get a chance to dangle a line, but are desperate to return soon. LP, Leatherhead"
