This is the third time we have visited this holiday let and it certainly won't be the last. It's miles from anywhere, peaceful, all you can hear is birds (and cows). Really comfortable, wonderful welcome tray and lovely owners. This is a really great place to get away from the daily rush and really relax.

“Owl Cottage is a real gem: Cosy, comfortable, modern, spacious; in fact, everything you could wish for, and more!”
Reviewed August 24, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Had a great week staying in the Owl House, which was really cosy, comfortable and spacious. We arrived after a 8.5 hour drive from Birmingham and was met with a lovely welcome pack which consisted of bread, milk, butter and plenty of other goodies, which kept us going. We were not expecting to have been left so much. There was also a free supply of logs to use on the woodburner which came in handy, especially as it was starting to get slightly chilly in the evening. There were also some fresh flowers in the cottage, which was a nice touch and made it seem homely for us. The bedroom was really spacious and the bed was really comfortable - at least 6ft wide. The cottage was ideally located between Falmouth and Gweek, and there was a really short drive to the village of Constantine which had a good stocked Spar shop and a pub which served food. The highlight for us had to be our visit to the Lizard point and the coastal walk we took to Kynance Cove, although we didn't quite get to the cove, but walked back to the point where there is a really nice cafe. Also we visited Porthleven, Mullion Cove, Falmouth, Penzance and Truro. Also, I booked myself on a Ocra 2 hour boat trip from Falmouth harbour which was great fun. The weather was a bit mixed, but most of the time it stayed dry for us. It is highly recommended - a great base to stay to visit the surrounding area.

“restorative retreat”
Reviewed August 17, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Owl House is a great little bolt hole in which to relax and restore. The house is nicely appointed with a 'welcome pack' awaiting you on arrival - we quickly felt at home. Jennie and Peter are just the right combination of present-but-not-hovering to ensure you have everything needed and then your on your own to explore this beautiful part of Cornwall - the awesome Lizard peninsula is a fifteen minute drive and there are stunning coastline walks - good gastro-pubs and restaurants within easy reach. All highly recommended.

“A haven!”
Reviewed August 16, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We had a glorious week staying in Owl House. The house itself is immaculate and beautifully decorated; we quickly felt at home. it's location is fantastic - remote without feeling isolated, since it's an easy drive to the beach and stunning coastal walks, as well as to Falmouth and Helston. Beautiful house + great location = wonderfully relaxing holiday :). We would heartily recommend it!

“An extremely well appointed country retreat”
Reviewed July 3, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Situated down a quiet country lane, yet only 5 miles from Falmouth, ideal for touring west Cornwall.
A very clean large well equipped converted barn, with log burning stove and everything that you need for a splendid holiday, including a lovely welcome pack.

“Piece of heaven”
Reviewed June 30, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Owl house is a perfect place to take time out, relax and reset. It has everything you need and designed to top quality. There is a nice walk to the local pub across the fields. It is a little of the beaten track but every thing you need is easy to access. We could not recommended owl house enough.

“Peaceful location retreat”
Reviewed June 29, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

An excellent property for two in a peaceful location, well equipped and away from the road. Well placed for touring The Lizard peninsular in particular Falmouth, Helford and Porthleven. We saw Coughs at Lizard Point. Lots of beautiful gardens and houses to visit. We found Clay Quay restaurant in Porthleven excellent.

We did have a problem prior to our visit in that, having changed computers, we lost the payment link. It was extremely difficult to contact the letting company, so contact and payment was made direct to the owners. The letting company advised this was acceptable then repeatedly sent requests for more money. We were then told by the letting company this was not acceptable to them and it took many lengthy phone calls to eventually resolve the situation.

The property location and owners were excellent - it was just the upset before our holiday which would lead us not to book through this company again.
