“Superb.”
Reviewed July 19, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Wonderful stay. Quiet, peaceful location. Annette the hostest with the mostest. Provided filling breakfasts - I had poached eggs on granary, with selection of cut fruit, orange juice, fresh coffee - could have been a full breakfast, much too much for me. Delivered with a smile and answers to every question, so much patience. A lovely person. Chalet impressive, clean, tidy, bed so comfortable slept like a log, very large shower, powerful flow, cooking amenities, fridge, freezer, TV - small but who watches TV on hols. Surrounds very nice, friendly dogs and cats, hardly a sound except the local wildlife. Great for finding the world outside: Fowey, St. Austell, Eden Project, Mevagissey, Lost Gardens of Heligan, Treslickett Gardens, Falmouth, Polperroo, Looe, Liskeard, Plymouth, etc. West Coast (Newquay, not that impressed although beaches good. Travel upwards, stop at the smaller beach locations and take in the views, visit Padstow, try Rick Stein's fish and chips - tasty and inexpensive - best out of Yorkshire! Local views magnificent, climb up the hill and take in the vista of the bay before you, breathtaking). Take a boat trip up River Fowey and a boat trip around the Bay at Falmouth - wonderful. So much to do and see with so little time to do it. When I visit this way again I hope that Lesquite is available. The narrow lanes were a challenge at first, but you quickly get used to them and automatic pilot slides in. Stay here, enjoy and be impressed in a classy sort of way. You will never forget Annette, dogs, cats, kids and family - as I already said, lovely people.

“Great House for a Weekend Getaway with Friends”
Reviewed April 8, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Rented Lesquite Farmhouse for the long Easter weekend with friends in celebration of a Birthday and had a fabulous time; the house has great amenities (fully stocked kitchen equipment, large kitchen and kitchen table, indoor cinema, fabulous outdoor space) and was a real treat to get away from the every day hustle of the City. The bathrooms were surprisingly modern for such an old farm house and the showers very hot and powerful (everyone in our group of 10 got a hot shower, which from past experiences of rental holiday houses, was a welcome surprise!) A very short drive to the seaside and lots of local attractions around to explore. We had a great time, thanks again for letting us stay!

9 of us stayed here for the week. Its a great base to stay if you want to travel around Cornwall and visit lots of locations as we did. The north or south coast is only 20mins drive away in either direction. We had a great time and would defiantly book this cottage again

“Lovely cottage”
Reviewed June 17, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We had a great time in this sweet cottage, very helpfully looked after and kindly let us come and go at rather odd times of day. Phoned to make sure we were ok. Very pretty location. We were a group of 6 and had plenty of room and 2 spare beds, I think the communal areas would be rather small for 10. Gorgeous garden with pond and fire and house had good shower and lovely bath. Kids loved the projector and Netflicks!! You should go!

“A great house for all the family - from 4 to 74!”
Reviewed September 6, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We booked this house at the last minute, the owners made it very easy via e-mail and the phone.
The house is comfortable, light and airy and contemporary - but not so "posh" that you won't let the children touch anything. There is everything that you could ever possibly want in the kitchen, 3 showers are very useful for 8 people, the garden kept everyone interested with secret corners, a fish pond (not fenced), very nice garden furniture and even a gas BBQ to use.
Helman Tor is nearby for a gentle climb, all the roads nearby are quiet ideal for walks, but i would advise you download a map if you are going walk the Wilderness trail!
The house is within easy reach of some beautiful villages, beaches and attractions such as the Eden project.
We had a great time and would love to go back next year!
