“Stargazey, fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2013

We stayed at Stargazey for a week in July and found it a wonderful, relaxing location with fantastic views over the countryside.

We were welcomed on arrival and shown to the cottage where a drink and cream tea was waiting for us.

The property was very well fitted out, clean and fixtures and fittings were to a high standard.

I would 100% recommend Wooldown Cottages and would stay here again without any hesitation.

If you're in the area, a couple of places we really enjoyed visiting were: St. Nectan's Glen, Tintagel and the Museum of witchcraft in Boscastle was worth a look.

Room Tip: Stargazey was a lovely place to stay, but having seen the images of the other properties at Wooldown...

Beautiful, peaceful location. The cottage was very well equipped and of a very high standard. We also took advantage of the catering service on our arrival, starter, main and dessert all delivered to our door, it was scrumptious. The owners also supplied us with a cream tea and a starter pack of coffee, tea and milk, to refresh us after our long trip. Suffering from a bad back, the spa bath was a delight!! The location is central for all the attractions that this side of Cornwall has to offer. One of the best retreats we have had the privilege of staying in. We were sad when our holiday came to an end, we will be going back there !! Wonderful people, wonderful location, a fantastic experience.

Another fantastic stay at Wooldown - our only regret was that we didn't stay longer! Dewdrop Dairy is our new favourite, although all the accomodation is outstanding. Beautifully furnished, always comfortable and absolutely everything you need for a truly relaxing break. The Blewitt's are always so helpful and hospitable and what is particularly impressive is that rather than resting on their laurels (which they easily could!) they continue to look for those little extras to improve your holiday even further. The huge fluffy towels are a lovely addition as was the goody bag for the long drive home. The birthday surprise they generously gave us was also SO much appreciated and completely unexpected. Bude and Widemouth Bay are on your doorstop and and as soon as we get there, we are planning our next stay - we can't recommend it highly enough. In fact we rave about it to everyone we know to the point that various members of our families have now stayed too. We love Wooldown!! : )

Room Tip: All Amazing!

Just returned from a short stay at Wooldown Holiday Cottages where we stayed in Wagoners. The accommodation was absolutely excellent. The four poster bed was really comfortable and the towels were the softest we have ever known. The location is perfect and the views panoramic.

Our three year old son had his own adjoining room, complete with low level beds (no need for bed sides) and miniature armchairs. He just loved it! Perfect set up for children. In fact he didn't want to go home.

The Blewett family couldn't be more welcoming and nothing was too much trouble.

A short drive to the local Weir Restaurant is a must. Great food and location. We made more than one visit!

Highly recommended holiday. Can't wait to make a return visit - already planning our return near Christmas time! Thanks to the Blewett family - see you soon!

Stayed her for my birthday celebration week. I was looking at several different properties around the bude area and decides upon Woolsdown because the website pictures looked amazing- oh and the spa bath sealed the deal. However to my surprise (being a bath fan) the rainfall shower was amazing! The apartment was amazing with views out to bude and in the middle of the country so was quiet. Apart from the sheep but how cool is that having sheep outside your door. I have stayed at a couple of places on farms in the bude area and I must say Wooldown was the best by far. The owners were really helpful and Rowan was very helpful providing us with ark and scones and letting us have late check out as no one was in after us! To top off the week the weather was brilliant. I would highly recommend Woolsdown an md if we were to stay in North Cornwall again I would not hesitate in booking here again. Hope this review is helpful to anyone thinking of booking - oh and if you are don't hesitate just book it, you won't be disappointed.

Just spent a fantastic week in Stargazey holiday cottage. Fantastic, huge copper spa round bath. The accommodation really had the WOW FACTOR. There was and cake and scones on our arrival and a goodie bag to send us on our way. The view from Stargazey was rolling countryside, so you could watch the sunrise from your bed! Really recommended.

My wife and i stayed at the "Milky Way" this was probably the first time that we have found somewhere that you do not have to go looking for anything or looking for staff over some little niggling problem,the owners have thought of everything that you will need,from full range of cooking utensils to soft fluffy bath towels,every thing was to the highest standard,The finish of the decor was excellent and the bi-folding doors leading out onto your own little area was again very well thought out.
The small welcome tray and cream tea was again well thought of as after a long journey its nice to be able to just boil a kettle and have a hot drink,without having to find a shop to buy tea coffee etc,on the day of departure we were given a small travel bag,two soft drinks crisps and snack bars for our journey home,again true customer care at the highest level,and the price was good too,could not recommend it enough.very well done you set a good example and others should follow. oh and the bed (take a map so you can find each other) it's huge.
