Been to Harris Cottage a few times. Ideal base to take advantage of everything Cornwall has to offer, even in February. Cosy accommodation for two people with all mod cons and excellent wi-fi. Selection of goodies provided on arrival, the housekeepers make sure everything is immaculate and warm for you.
I stayed in Harris Cottage near Newquay for 3 nights and it was wonderful! A small, cosy, well equipped cottage in a peaceful farm location. Warming log burner but also lovely gardens if you stayed in the warmer months. Lots to see and do in the local area, coastal walking, Padstow, Trerice House and much more.
Stayed here for a week in a 2 bedroom cottage. The furnishings and quality of amenities are excellent. The welcome pack is a nice touch with scones, cookies, tea, clotted cream, small milk provided. Plus the kitchen is kitted out with everyday items like washing up liquid, foil, cling film, dishwasher tablets, washing powder etc. So the need to pack so much less is a bonus. All the main supermarkets also do grocery delivery here. Plus all towels provided including pool towels and Molton Brown travel set very nice! There is a small car park and you can bring your car a bit nearer to unload. Wi-fi is fast when it works, we had some connection issues and the team fixed it as soon as possible. The kitchen could have been a bit more cleaner, some debris in cupboard and kettle. Rest of the place was reasonably spotless. It really is quiet if you just want to chill, Lostwithiel is a good place to explore both South and North Cornwall. Bodmin is near as well as St Austell. You can just about see Restormel Castle from the cottages at the top of the hill, very short drive or walk away. The best asset is the indoor pool, sauna and steam room. Not crowded and free use everyday. It meets the five stars and the price reflects this, although in peak summer not sure the cost would be justififed. In Spring it is more value. Overall great place to stay and very family friendly.…
My parents booked out the whole Manor House for a week with all the family and it was magical. The grounds are beautiful with good leisure amenities to hand in the swimming pool, steam room, sauna, games room, tennis court and children's play area. The main house itself is large but feels very homely and comfortable and we got a chef-for-hire in a couple of nights to do us meals for the main dining room, which was great. I could go on and on but I just want to go back there!
Instead of coming to Cornwall in the summer we opted for a Christmas break - and we were so pleased we did! Our cottage (Hext) had everything we could have wished for including a real Christmas tree, festive decorations and a welcome hamper. Instead of cooking all over Christmas we could enjoy the beautiful walks from the cottage - particularly up to the Duchy Nursery and enjoy a daily swim in the indoor pool. A real treat! Cornwall is just as beautiful in the winter and has the benefit of being warmer than where we live and much quieter than in the summer! We look forward to our visit next year.
