“Beautiful place”
Reviewed July 16, 2012

We have just returned from a long weekend here and the whole place was an absolute gem, The cottage was clean, spacious and the greeting we received was impressive.........we arrived at 12.30, after being u at 2.15am and a very long drive with a 4yr old and a 1yr old. I asked of we could please use the pool for a while, even though we were early, so we could let the kids have a play while we waited for family to arrive at 2pm.....not only was the response 'of course' but we were very kindly brought towels for us to use also. After apologies that we could not have our cottage until 4pm, it was made available to us just after 2pm! We were very grateful for this.
I would say make sure you stock up on loo rolls and washing up liquid etc as we ran out after the first day and had to make a dash to the shops, and be aware that reception is rarely manned (the owners are available by phone in an emergency), but there are great hospitality packs available to tell you what is on and where.
There were some issues with the hot water in the mornings, where it transpired that previous guests had locked the settings for the boiler, but this should be sorted now that the staff have been made aware.
The kids loved the mini-farm, play area and pool and we loved the garden and the BBQ. Our neighbours were really friendly too - we would definitely visit again.

My family of four adults and two children had a fantastic bank holiday break here, we arrived late and went straight to our cottage. It was spotlessly clean, warm and inviting. Every part of the cottage was well equipped especially the kitchen!

The views were outstanding and we had a lovely garden for our children to play in, our little boy is special needs and it was a safe environment for him to be in.

The rooms had lovely thick curtains which blocked out any light in the mornings which was brilliant when having young children, we opened the curtains every morning to see the cows in the field.
We swam in the heated pool every morning and evening, and had days out to the nearby beaches.

I could go on and on but I really enjoyed it here, nice and relaxing and the children where happy.

One weeks stay from 31st March 2012.
Clean, spacious cottage. Loved the underfloor heating!
Ensuite shower room, bathroom, downstairs cloak/shower room - spoilt for choice. Kids loved the warm, clean indoor pool. Nice and central for so many beautiful areas. Highly recommended. We will definitely be returning.

Just returned from a four night break at Green Acre Cottages.Lovely clean spacious modern cottage with fantastic views over country side. Cottages are well equipped and has everything for a self catering break. There were two shower rooms which was great when sharing with two teenage girls! The indoor pool was a bonus although could do with opening earlier than 9.30am as would have liked a swim earlier before setting out for the day.The cottage was in a good location for sight seeing. Visited Fowey, Looe, St Mawes and went over to Perranporth on the west coast. St Austell is 10 mins away and enjoyed an evening at the cinema and there is a small shopping centre with clothes shops. On the way to St. Austell there is a big Tescos and an Asda, good for if self catering for a week. Can't fault this place and hope to try one of their other cottage complexs that Travel Smith own.

Room Tip: Had cottage 7 which had great views over country side. Some have better views than others.

We were a party of six and we had an absolute fabulous stay. Would defiantly recommend to anyone. The facilities were first class. Clean, comfortable, and the staff were friendly and helpful. An ideal base to visit many locations in that part of Cornwall.

Had a lovely stay at Green acres which does everything it says on their website. Cottages are lovely - bathrooms particularly good. The heating is fantastic - very cosy and warm. Kitchens well equipped. The pool is a nice addition and the on site laundry facilities are very handy (if a little pricey - £4.00 each for a cycle of washing and drying). It would be nicer if the cottages were closer to a pub or restaurant, but if you're content to spend your days out and about and your nights in the lovely gardens and cosy cottage then this is the place for you. Very friendly staff too, and high standards of cleanliness.

Room Tip: Dog friendly cottages have lovely views and no 3 has an enclosed garden
