“Quality & luxury holiday cottage - what a treat!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2013

Stayed in VIP cottage during the Easter holidays with my family and I must say, it was the nicest UK holiday we've had... The cottage was spotless with really good quality fixtures & attention to detail (crockery, cutlery, bed linen etc). Excellent facilities to be found in the play park and the pool, which was warm & made up for the lack of working hot tub in our accommodation (which the staff dealt with efficiently & refunded us part of the holiday cost). Really quiet & peaceful yet enough close to towns etc to go exploring. We all loved it & had a really enjoyable week - highly recommended!

We spent Christmas at Green Acres and had such a wonderful time none of us wanted to come home!

The cottages are really cosy and excellent if you have small children as the location is central to so many attractions including beeches, river and woodland walks and the beautiful villages that surround the cottages, each with really child friendly and yummy places to eat.

With the added benefits of an indoor swimming pool and a lovely play area, as well as wonderfully equipped kitchens and cosy bedrooms this place is a real must for a fuss free self catering holiday.

Just back from 4 days at Greenacres cottages. The cottages are kept in beautiful condition and ours was immaculately clean.
They are up a lane in the country about a mile from the nearest shops. We ate out at night and found most pubs allow dogs in the bar. We would recommend The ship, The Britannia and the Holme bush close by and the Royal Oak in Lostwithiel.

We had a three night stay at Greenacres through the daily deals website, KGB. Considering the amount we paid, it was very good value for money. The cottage was nicely equipped and the facilities were lovely - the swimming pool is great! I am sure in the summer the place looks much nicer as we visited in November and everything was a bit grey. We visited Eden Project which was well worth the trip!

We had a three night stay at greenacres through a special offer on kgb deals.
Greenacres is easy to find and in a good location within easy reach of st austell, padstow etc.
The cottage was a good size, nice and warm and clean with all of the things you would want for self catering.
There was only two of us that stayed but it would comfortably sleep six. My only gripe is that there could supply a small washing up liquid and kitchen and bathroom spray.
We would definitely stay again.

The standard of these cottages is excellent, which is why they achieve awards. As a prelude I would like to say that we have stayed in many cottages over the last twenty years, such as "English Country Cottages", "Premier Cottages" etc. and we are aware of what high standards should be. These cottages rate among the best. This is the second time that we have stayed here, and each time the cleanliness of the property is as good as one could expect. All of the equipment was of a high standard and everything worked. The written documentation in the cottage for each facility and piece of equipment was also very good. The wi-fi worked well as did the Telly and the DVD. I used the pool daily and that was enjoyable too, large enough to have a decent swim. Both bathrooms were spotless and modern, and importantly, the showers were great. The cottages are arranged so that residents do not disturb one another and privacy is maintained. The cottages are off a small lane so that there is no traffic noise and as they are on a hill the views are great. The village is about a mile away for newspapers etc. This is a great place from which to visit lots of interesting places in this area of Cornwall. . We talked to staff there and they dealt wit any queries we had and seemed pleased to be helpful. We are certain to go there again.

With mixed reviews - lovely location with far reaching views towards the sea. The cottage was very clean on arrival but we had problems with the main hot water supply to the bathroom and despite reporting the problem this was never fixed during our stay which prevented one couple using the main bathroom which after spending quite a bit of money on the package disappointed us. I also felt that some more mugs and cups would have been useful as when you are on holiday often more than one cup is enjoyed so we spent time washing up often. 4mugs and 6 small cups and saucers soon were used up quickly. Be prepared that the twin rooms are not very spacious but did give amazing views - sitting in bed looking out far to the hills. Cottage no 6 has it,s own hot tub which was great to use.

Room Tip: Cottage 6 - has own hot ub amazing views and private garden
