We stayed in the Warricks and it was very pleasant and cosy. Two lovely private terraces. Lovely shared courtyard. Great shared pool and steam room. Set in beautiful grounds. It was a little pricey - I think the name adds to the overall price of the stay as the cottage is cosy and comfy but not luxurious. Overall a fantastic week and a good location to explore Cornwall.

Our second visit to the the Duchy of Cornwall holiday cottages. Last time we stayed in the Diggery and this time Restormel Cottage. Unlike most of the cottages Restormel Cottage is not in the same location, being a short 10 minute walk away. The facilities.... heated pool, play area, tennis court etc are at the main complex so be prepared to walk in the event you plan to use the facilities. (Note: you can of course drive but the route means this probably takes a little longer than to walk). The upside of Restormel Cottages location is it's right next door to the Duchy of Cornwall Nursery / Cafe which does a great cooked breakfast / cream tea! The walk is via a quiet, car free track so not a problem, unless raining of course. Also note due to COVID-19 restrictions you have to book individual use of the pool, although we had no issues getting the slots we requested. The pool is cleaned between each use and the staff appear to do a very thorough job. The cottage and all the facilities are immaculate and well maintained. Given COVID-19 restrictions we had been warned that some of the ornaments, board games, DVDs etc would have to be removed from the cottage but this wasn't noticeable and didn't impact our enjoyment. (remember to bring your own scrabble!) Restormel Cottage has it's own garden and parking for 2/3 cars so plenty of open space. Given its location it is much more private than the majority of the other cottages in the main complex. We booked for 2 weeks and were welcomed with a small welcome pack on arrival and a further pack was delivered at the start of our second week which was a nice touch. Due to COVID-19 restrictions there was no cleaning / bedding changes made although we were provided with more than enough clean towels and bedding to last the full two weeks. Overall Duchy of Cornwall Cottages are a 'safe bet' and whilst probably a little more expensive than some of the alternatives I would say worth the money. Of course, as is the case everywhere they are particularly expensive during the peak season / school holidays which is always frustrating for those of us with kids! The only slight disadvantage of the cottages is their location i.e. they are not particulalrly near a beach. Par Sands, Fowey, Mawgan Porth, Padstow and even Newquay are all within reasonable driving distance however. We did consider a beach location for next year but decided that on balance the facilities available at Duchy of Cornwall outweigh a beach location but this is certainly worth considering if you are planning a beach holiday.

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.

Room Tip: Get a cottage that backs onto its own patio rather than a shared garden.
