“The warmest of welcomes once again”
Reviewed October 2, 2008

There are lots of very positve reviews of Spring Cottage for one simple reason: It really is that wonderful!

Chris and David really made it feel like a home from home; they even remembered me from my previous visit from 3 years ago! The welcome really is like seeing old friends again.

The rooms cannot be faulted for sheer accessible luxury. It was beautifully decorated and the bathroom was that nice you wanted to spend longer in the shower! The DVD collection is a lovely touch too.

It is difficult to find words to adequately describe the sensational breakfasts that Chris produces each morning. The whole experience is relaxed and, unlike some other B&B's, you don't feel you have to have breakfast when it suits the owners.

We will certainly be finding an excuse to visit Cornwall again just so we can stay at Spring Cottage once more!

We stayed at Spring Cottage for four nights in August 2008 and have been raving to friends about how lovely our stay was. The rooms are immaculate and any hotel inspector would be hard pressed to find anything wrong with the room. We stayed in a room which had a door onto the garden and had the most powerful shower of any B&B in the UK!

The breakfasts were of high quality, with a large selection of choices. We had a cooked English breakfast and the pancakes with maple syrup with bacon (they were both yummy!).

When my partner couldn't make breakfast due to illness I requested some toast and a cup of tea to take to him in the room. The tray was made up beautifully (with a gorgeous Spode tea cup) and a lovely assortment of jams.

We both loved chatted informally with the other guests, who shared an appreciation for the hospitality provided by both Chris and David.

I would recommend this B&B to everybody who wants a quiet and relaxing escape to Cornwall. It is not located in the larger tourist towns, but the quality of the rooms and hospitality gives this B&B an exclusive feel.

P.S. The individal night lanterns on the staircase up to the cottage was a delightful touch and made coming back in the evening very special.

Spring Cottage is gorgeous, a very beautiful listed building which has been sympathetically renovated by Chris and David. The decor is a mix of boutique hotel and traditional Cornish. Chris and David are the perfect hosts and Chris' breakfasts are to die for! We've now stayed at 2 The Court too and it is equally lovely. The fresh homemade scones and jam on arrival were particularly welcome. ........We wouldn't stay anywhere else in Cornwall.

Just got back from a 2 night stay at Spring Cottage.
The cottage is absolutely beautiful, with wonderful period features and nicely decorated. It is also really well situated for all parts of Cornwall.
We were welcomed warmly when we arrived and were made to feel more like old friends than paying customers! The rooms are spotlessly clean, relaxing and comfortable, and the breakfasts will keep you going all day!
Would most definitely stay there again if visiting Cornwall.

Spring cottage is a little piece of heaven in Cornwall. Chris and David the hosts make you feel so welcome. From the minute we arrived nothing was too much trouble, we were even welcomed with a pot of tea. The dogs Charlie and Jack like to say hello as well.

The rooms were light and airey and tastefully decorated. They have thought of everything i.e: maps and books on local places of interest, dvds to watch and torches and umbrellas.

The breakfasts are a delight everything from a full English to American style pancakes. We would recommend Spring Cottage to anyone for a relaxing stay and the whole experience was wonderful.

My girlfriend and I stayed here for the weekend and thought it was absolutely fantastic. The rooms were very well decorated, modern and exceptionally clean. Both David & Chris make you feel extremely welcome and provide you with an awesome breakfast in the morning!

We would definitely use this B&B again - hurry up and try it!
