“Ideal for a diverse group of adults who all wanted to do different things”

Our party was made up of myself and my husband, our son and two of his friends and our two dogs. The lads, all in their twenties, came with us so that they could ride their BMX bikes in the park in Truro. My husband and I just wanted to relax and go on some nice walks with the dogs. Prosper Cottage managed to cope with 5 adults and 2 lurchers without ever feeling over crowded (apart from in the kitchen which couldn't cope with all of us in there at once). Although the actual number of steps down to the house was a bit of a surprise it did mean that it is very sheltered and so was quiet and didn't feel like being on an estate. It is very well situated for both North and South coasts but my husband and I mainly visited several of the many National Trust gardens on the Roseland peninsula. I would particularly recommend Trebah Gardens with its own private beach. The local Chinese was very good and delivers and the Pizza Hut up by the college was a god send for those not wishing to do too much cooking on holiday.
A word of warning, the traffic through the centre of Truro was nearly as bad as Oxford so I would suggest walking up to the college and getting the bus or using the Park and Ride.

“It was very suitable to our requirements”
Reviewed August 14, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

The cottage was excellent and it fulfilled everything we required. Having tried to find something in the school holidays we were very fortunate this one was available when we needed it

“Great base for visiting county”
Reviewed June 25, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Came for my sister's wedding and stayed with my husband, our 2 kids and his parents. The house was a good size, everything immaculately clean and well kept when we arrived, and Linda (the landlady) was good about letting us in late when we got stuck on the motorway at Bristol for 4 hours! Had a fantastic time, house was a perfect base for travelling around the county as it's 5 mins away from main roads and easy to get into Truro city centre.
