“Fab week”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

Cottage excellent, perfect for a peaceful and romantic break. Also good for families with the indoor pool. Not in walking distance of any pubs, but plenty of nice pubs and restaurents in th local area. Loved the britannia waves, sam on the beach and the rashleigh inn

5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

Really well equipped cottage everything you need for a self catering holiday, we stayed in VIP cottage No 6 with hot tub, we used the swimming pool every day which was brilliant as most of the time we had it to ourselves. Locally we ate at the Crown Inn in Lanlivery which was fantastic and we also ate at the Ship Inn Polmear which was good for a Bar Meal. Fowey was lovely but we thought Polperro was amazing a little bit further along the coast but well worth a visit. I would definitely recommend Green acres for the location and Cottage all in all we had a great week. One very small criticism the floor boards in the bedrooms were incredibly noisy and a bit annoying at times but I still have to give it 5 out of 5!

The cottage was gorgeous, clean and comfortable. Three bathrooms were all pretty clean. We went in June with our son, daughter in-law plus two dogs. lovely to have our own garden, beautiful views as the cottages are quite high up. Pool was lovely although rather cold. People are friendly. We all loved being there and have said we want to go back. I kept saying I could quite happily live there.

Beautiful cottages, very quiet location, lovely views . Nice sizeable indoor heated swimming pool in case of bad weather. Couple of unlucky issues - dishwasher was broken on arrival and not replaced until last day - but compensation given - plus wi-fi out for two days. But would go again as excellent venue, well positioned, well kept and quiet.

Room Tip: The views are best from the 'hot tub' two which are 'end of terrace' - so worth payi...

we stayed here in March for three nights and had an excellent time. The cottage was spotlessly clean and had all facilities in the kitchen. we loved the log burner fire really cosy at night.
The cottage had its own gardne and BBQ too although was too cold in March to use!
The cottages are near lots of pretty towns and Par Sands beach which was near by was lovely,
the only negative the pool wasnt heated the kids used it but it was freezing!!!
Would definitely go again.

We chose this cottage for our three day stay because it was close to Heligan and the Eden Project and because it had the swimming pool and wifi. The location is excellent for exploring Cornwall and our house was well appointed.

The website definitely doesn't do justice to the layout of the group of houses so we weren't too sure what to expect or what the exact layout of our unit would be, ie we ended up basing our choice on reviews and luckily weren't disappointed. It's a pity that the website has the side of a house on the welcome page as in reality it's much nicer than what the website portrays!! The houses are in two long terraces. Parking was at the back of our terrace and the swimming pool was directly opposite the accommodation. Flexible arrival is catered for as you are allocated a pin to a key collection point.

The kitchen/sitting and dining room were all in one area on the ground floor complete with log burning stove and the twin and double bedroom and two bathrooms were located on the first floor. There was also a shower room on the ground floor so three bathrooms in total so as to also cater for those who might be on the sofa bed. The heating also seemed to work well (It may have been June when we stayed but we had some wet coldish weather yet it felt nice and warm in the house)

You will need to bring things like a towel for the swimming pool, salt, pepper, shampoo, washing up liquid, ie all the basics as very little is provided. The dish washer is small and you will only be allocated one tablet per day of your stay. There is a coin operated laundry machine in the swimming pool complex. The recycling facilities are good.

Stayed for a long weekend with my partner's Mum who commented every day that she would love to live there. The cottage had everything needed for a luxury self catering break, was spotlessly clean and the views were amazing. A perfect base for exploring Cornwall and we really looked forward to going back after a day's sightseeing to relax and go for a swim . Will definitely return but next time for longer.

Room Tip: Cottage 9 has a furnished patio off the bedrooms as well as the lounge.
