“Perfect home away from home”

I traveled with my husband, children and extended family. We had 4 adults and 5 children all under 6 years old. My husband and I and our 3 kids had come over from Australia to see our family who live in Southampton. We booked blue monkey so we could have a week living together. It was perfect.

The booking process was straightforward, Pam replied promptly to my emails and was patient while she waited for an international money transfer (she promised to hold the property for us - in the end the money only took a day or so to clear).

The driving directions were helpful. The welcome pack gave us loads of information. We arrived at 3pm, the house was ready, cleaners had departed, the key was easily accessed with the instructions provided by Ed and Pam. We walked in to find Hot Cross buns, clotted cream and jam for our afternoon tea and a bottle of Prosecco in the fridge.

The house was immaculately clean. It instantly felt warm and inviting. The size was perfect for our family, especially with all our little children. We booked just the 4 rooms and our youngest slept in a cot in the massive ensuite bathroom. The 4 older children shared 2 rooms.

Everything you could possibly need for kids was provided - including 2! high chairs and blockout for the windows, cot, toys, stair gates (which had already been placed for us!).

The rooms were of good size, the facilities were excellent. Kitchen was great. 2 areas to eat. Big TV and DVD player. Washing machine/dryer/dishwasher all worked well. Many toilets and bathrooms.

Location was great. The men were very chuffed that the pub is only 2 doors away. Cawsand is stunning and felt very intimate. Try to bring some groceries in for the first couple of nights and takeaway is hard to come by and the supermarket is about 20 mins away. HOwever most of the pubs seem to serve evening meals. There was a folder in the house with lots of local information.

Wifi provided was excellent.

We would certainly return.

Blue Monkey was recommended by friends of my daughter-in-law who had stayed there. It needed to be child friendly, close to the beach, and comfortable as we travelled in November.
It was all of these things and more. We thoroughly enjoyed our week there celebrating my 70th Birthday with friends and family. Nothing in the property was overlooked and we felt really at home and very comfortable

“Far and away our favourite cottage and place to stay in Cornwall.”

With a long list of boxes to be ticked I spent hours trawling through cottages online looking for a special one for an important week (my birthday was at the end!). I know I'm fussy but we've made mistakes...... I wanted somewhere dog friendly √ where we'd enjoy spending time indoors if the weather was bad √ preferably with an open fire √ and with a 'boutique' feel √ somewhere cosy but not cluttered √, an outside area for our dog to enjoy √, and us too √, no pink carpets, patterned sofas or horse brasses√ somewhere I could cook if we fancied eating in √, a bbq in case husband managed to catch any fish (there's a great fishmonger in Looe so we found out) √, big comfortable beds √, wireless √, Sky TV √ contemporary bathroom √ beautiful scenery √ dog friendly beach within walking distance √ great pubs within walking distance √ parking nearby √ food delivery √ No doubt I shall remember more later....!! I think by now though that you will get my drift! Blue Monkey was absolutely perfect in every way & we both long to return maybe with family and friends next time. There is just one thing I hadn't banked on, the minute you walk through the front door you can feel the happy times, it's almost as if you can hear the laughter. Thanks Blue Monkey et al for the most wonderful week.
