“Thoroughly enjoyed our stay!”
Reviewed August 18, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

A lovely cottage, with large wet room and everything you need for a good holiday. The road leading to the retreat is rather bumpy but it's passable and if you had a 4 x 4 I'm sure it would be fine!

The owners, Simon and Felicity are lovely and are on hand for give local travel tips and advice of great beaches - would definitely recommend Crantock beach, you can hire wet suits, body boards, deck chairs and Wind breakers, plus there are toilets, and a beach hut selling hot and cold drinks!

The New Inn, is only a 10 minute walk from the cottage and well worth a visit, the food was great and the staff are friendly and efficient. :-)

All in all a fab holiday!

“Amazing and relaxing”

person found this review helpful

We stayed for the first week of July and thought the accommodation was perfect, we travelled as a couple and our cocker spaniel. The location was perfect for exploring all Cornwall and was extremely well presented. The accommodation is light, airy and very well laid out, yes the accommodation is lose to the owners own property but please do not let this deter you as the owners are really nice folk and the gardens are magnificent. Would highly recommend that you stay, we can't wait to go back

“We've never been so relaxed!!! You have to stay!”
Reviewed February 10, 2013 for a stay in October 2012

My husband and I have just returned from our 4 night stay at Shilbury. We are still totally relaxed and thoroughly enjoyed our break! The cottage is immaculate with everything you need + more! It's cosy, comfortable and we will be back to stay! As a young married couple we enjoyed newquay 10/15 mins drive away,however also ventured out to perranporth, landsend, st Ives, fistral beach and more! We also discovered sennon cove which is really beautiful as well as Holywell bay! A real hidden gem though, is Watergate bay! Def a must if you like good food, in fact, Jamie Oliver's restaurant is tucked away down there!
The cottage was a perfect base to explore all of Cornwall from! We loved every second of it!

The only thing I will say, is that it is closer to the owners house than I anticipated, however only saw them once during our whole stay, we were given complete privacy, so don't let it put you off!

Already planning when we can go again!

Thanks!
