What can I add to what has already been said?
We have just returned from our first visit to Orchard Cottage and already making plans to return.
Having spoken to Liz prior to arriving we already felt like old friends. The welcome, cream tea, thoughtful touches to help my daughter and I celebrate our birthdays, Liz made our riding and dinner reservations for us, cards and handmade chocolates waiting for us made us feel very special.

The cottage is lovely with quality furnishings, linens, huge towels and handmade soap, let alone the amazing view from the bedroom windows. Extremely clean and well equipped.

It was really nice to have the garden and bird table and also the apple tree laden with blossom, we enjoyed our visits from the friendly pheasant.

Liz and her family can't do enough for you to ensure your stay is perfect. The scones and pasties are superb, and we learnt a lot from her Dad who has amazing knowledge of Cornwall.

We enjoyed 'borrowing' Sandy for walks too. The new born calves were delightful and we were welcome to visit at anytime.

Locally Perranporth beach is superb and anyone who likes horse-riding should book a beach ride at Reen Manor Stables. We also spent a great day at Newquay Zoo where we pre booked and hand fed lemurs.

It's no wonder we and others keep returning. The idyllic location, the warm welcome and hospitality from Liz, Nick and family and the superb accommodation make this a perfect location for a stay in Cornwall. The modern, quality improvements to Orchard Cottage make it even better. Blessed with gorgeous Easter weather made this a fantastic break for us. Brilliant.

We have just come back from staying at Callestock Courtyard and we stayed in Wheal Busy. This is our second visit and once again it was absolutely fantastic, spotlessly clean, and furnished to a very high standard. Wonderful cream tea on arrival, it really is the best of the best and we would never go anywhere else. Thanks once again to our wonderful hosts Liz and Nick for making our weekend so enjoyable and we look forward to seeing you again later in the year.

Fantastic accommodation at Callestock Courtyard,The converted Barn Wheel Busy we stayed in is furnished to a very high standard and has pretty much everything that you would want with a great patio area and peaceful surroundings. Really enjoyed a cosy November evening in front the log burner with a nice glass of wine, The owners who live next door were so helpful and kind.Thank you

We feel like regulars returning again to enjoy the comfort, quiet, and delightful surroundings at Callestock Courtyard. Wheal Busy upgraded is a great success, lots of space and very 5 star with a dressing-room. The usual welcome from Liz and Nick and hearing the news of the farm and the latest eco-friendly features is a joy.

This was our third visit to Callestock Courtyard, and our third different appartment - Wheal Anna this time, but it is impossible to choose a favourite between them. We find this a great base to easily reach all different parts of Cornwall.
As previously, the accommodation was beautifully prepared. It was our first visit since the bathroom was upgraded, and although previously good, this now really has the 'wow' factor. The cream tea on arrival was greatly enjoyed.
The apartment is well equipped - there was nothing else we could think of to improve it.
There is little more to say that has not been said before.
Thank you Liz and Nick for another perfect week, and hope to see you again soon.

44 reviewers can't be wrong, I thought. And yet there's always a flicker of doubt that the holiday accommodation you've finally chosen may not quite be what you've expected; other people's expectations may not be the same as your own and while pictures don't lie, they sometimes don't tell the full story. This was the case with Wheal Busy - it wasn't quite what we expected - it was even better! Beautifully furnished, spotlessly clean, spacious yet cosy, fabulous bathroom and very well equipped kitchen. The charming dressing room was an added bonus.

But that's not even the whole story.

Liz, and Nick, the lovely owners, are wonderfully welcoming and Liz's delicious homemade cream tea on arrival provides the perfect antidote to a five-hour drive. They are genuinely friendly and helpful hosts who go out of their way to ensure that you make the most of your holiday. They're a mine of local information and take pleasure in advising on walks, places to visit and pubs/restaurants etc.

For us, the location was perfect too. From Zelah, you can easily access all parts of Cornwall - even the rugged west coast, which offers brilliant cliff top walks and has spectacular hidden coves, was less than an hour away. There are also some lovely walks around Zelah itself. More importantly, there is a good local pub serving excellent food (can highly recommend the fish and chips)!

We were very lucky to have great weather in early September but we're looking forward to returning in late autumn, lighting up the wood burner and getting really cosy!

Thank you so much, Liz and Nick, and see you again very soon!
