“Second to none for peace and tranquility”
Reviewed August 20, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Joined my folks at Kingsmill Farm Cottage, after a rather hectic holiday with my mates further down south.
What a surprise upon my arrival to see the cottage sitting by a tidal creek, surrounded by water and trees, with walls swathed in flowering climbers, and not a thing to interrupt the peace and quiet.
I was there for 3 nights and had a very comfortable double bed in the ground floor bedroom with it's own adjoining bathroom. There are a further 2 bedrooms upstairs with their own bathroom. The cottage can sleep 6 although we were just 3.
We chilled and caught up with each other, enjoying home cooked meals from the well equipped kitchen; had enough of eating out by then.
The garden seems very well kept with fantastic views of the Tamar. If ever I am in need of R&R again I would consider booking it for myself!

We were recommended this place by some friends so decided to give it a try as we really love the area. The cottage was located just outside of Saltash and an easy drive from the Midlands. When we arrived we were welcomed by the owners who showed us around. The cottage was immaculate and well laid out, with everything we needed. A bedroom downstairs as my Mom can’t do stairs and a nice large bedroom upstairs for us, plus one for the kids. We had more than enough space, with a large open plan kitchen and living room. It was really peaceful and relaxing stay, and even though the owner’s house which is also on the property, it was not over looked by them. The private garden, which is right on the estuary of the Tamar River, was a fantastic spot for having a few sundowners after spending days out. We found most places we went to for lunch were dog friendly, so that was a real bonus! We will definitely be booking this lovely little cottage again.

Thank you for taking the time to review Kingsmill Farm Cottage. I am glad you found the property immaculate and that the bedroom configuration suited your family's needs. The garden really is such a remarkable place to unwind on the banks of the creek. We would love to welcome you back to Kingsmill and back with us at Cornish Traditional Cottages again in the future.

We went to stay at Kingsmill Cottage earlier this year, and as luck would have it enjoyed great weather, so thought I should write it up.
The cottage itself is situated by the water, the owners are up the hill but hidden by a huge bamboo hedge. From the cottage you can see only nature, no houses, roads or anything else but trees and water. As it's tidal we saw both diving and wading birds, there seems to be a resident kingfisher about which we viewed through the binoculars provided. At night the only sounds were from the owls, we noticed a lot of bird boxes on the trees and had many bird species visit the garden.
The place was very clean and tidy, with all the things we needed to cater for us and provide comfort, for us the kids and the dogs.
The people who look after the place were most accommodating, and even gave us their fridge-freezer when ours stopped working on a Sunday at 8pm.
The chap is rather fussy about keeping the loverly dog/child proof garden looking great, we were asked to pick up the dog droppings and put water on the grass to stop urine killing the grass, but as there was a hosepipe by the lawn it was no sweat, and we appreciated it would soon be ruined otherwise.
The wi-if is provided free, but can be a little slow at times, can't complain as we have the same problem at home.
The kids loved it too as there are lots of things to do and see in the area. Great holiday, hope to be back there in the future.

“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”
Reviewed May 22, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

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”

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.
