“A wonderfully tranquil experience.”
Reviewed August 13, 2017 for a stay in October 2016

We were both totally delighted with the excellent accommodation, which was so well appointed ...could not fault it. Our hosts were kind and we had everything we needed, but we were left to ourselves which is what we wanted, as we'd travelled such a long way and were exhausted ( we are from Hobart, Tasmania ) The views from the cottage are ever changing with the tides coming into the estuary. A wonderfully tranquil setting and completely restorative.
On a previous occasion we had stayed there with both our grownup sons and there was more than enough room for all.
We travel extensively and this is probably the best accommodation we have stayed in...it is home from home. And will always be on our list when next we're in Cornwall.
We love it !!

“Great location - but no privacy”

This cottage is basically a converted garage, overlooked by the owners just a short distance away. The bedrooms are OK, beds very comfy, and the master bedroom is a good size however the main living area is a small kitchen diner /living room - the dining table is a garden table really only seating 4 - though there are enough chairs for 6 - and the settees are a bit shabby and too small for 6. Bathrooms are small and we struggled for enough hot water on occasions.

The location is good - though depending on tides you will often be looking out at lots of mud. The garden is ok, and fully enclosed so should be suitable for dogs, but the owners (twice) insisted that dog urine on the lawn should be washed away with water - completely impractical and that dogs must be strictly controlled outside the garden- so not dog friendly at all

The biggest issue was the owners and the fact they turned up every day, unannounced, and walked into the garden to 'feed the fish', entering by any of the gates and walking right past any of the cottage windows, and even attempting to come into the cottage to sort out recycling / rubbish - on our second day!. They didn't call out or ask if it was a good time, simply walked right through the grounds, which we felt was absolutely unacceptable and ultimately spoiled our holiday. The gentleman - 'David' seemed to think his intrusions were a reason to lecture anyone too polite to walk away on his views of conservation and veterinary practice.

The surrounding creek should also be dog friendly being well away from roads and livestock, however there are rules about keeping dogs on a very short lead outside of the cottage - I think due to the wildlife on the river - but this seemed disproportionate.

All things considered a nice location that is spoiled by the limitations of the accommodation and the owners who do not seem to understand that when you rent out property you should allow the tenant peaceful enjoyment and do not have rights of access.

We will not be back and do not recommend this holiday letting.

Thank you for your feedback and your comments which are invaluable in helping to monitor the standards of properties throughout the year and to bring any issues to the attention of the owner. The description does state that the driveway is shared with the owner therefore implying that they are close by and mentions the property sits on the banks of a tidal creek which will inevitably show mud banks at certain times of the day. The information provided also tells you that dogs must be kept on a lead when outside the cottage garden because of its proximity to water and wildlife. We will, as a matter of course, pass on all your comments to the owner and hope we can welcome you back to one of our many other properties in our portfolio.

“Dog owners beware, what a disappointment”
Reviewed March 15, 2016 for a stay in July 2014

people found this review helpful

My husband and I booked this holiday a year in advance as part of my husband's recuperation after major knee surgery. We took with us our two boxer dogs and two teenage children. The holiday was a nightmare from beginning to end. The owners did not respect our privacy and advised us that whenever the dogs went to the toilet in their garden, that we needed to throw a bucket of water over it so not to ruin their grass! It was very hot when we were there and we were advised that if we went out, the dogs needed to be shut in a small corridor area which had no window and no circulation for the dogs. The owner also turned up nuanced at various points during our stay and was intrusive. On one occasion I was in my pyjamas. the whole experience was so stressful that we decided to cancel out second week and leave the petrol early - the property is indeed in a beautiful location and in wonderful scenery. If you are an animal lover and seeking a dog friendly relaxing break for yourself and your family, give this place a miss.
