“Beautiful location and a stunning property”
Reviewed October 9, 2012 for a stay in October 2012

The house itself was immaculately presented, beautifully furnished and ideal for either couples or larger groups. From the moment we arrived we were greeted with the ingredients for a cream tea which was a lovely touch. Communication with the owners was excellent with us being fully informed at all stages from enquiry to actual booking. Windmill is a lovely village, with a small bay and coastal walks only a few minutes walk from the house. Padstow is only a few minutes away by car and has everything that you may need, from great restaurants to supermarkets and additional shopping. I would not hesitate in booking this cottage in the future and would highly recommend this location and cottage to anyone.

“A classy and stylish beach retreat.”
Reviewed June 15, 2012 for a stay in June 2012

We travelled as a group of seven: my husband and myself, our three children (9,4 and 3) and the grandparents. The cottage was amazing from the moment we entered. The kids argued over which fabulous bedroom they slept in - and they continued to swap all week! The grandparents were easily slotted in to the downstairs bedroom complete with their own space. And finally my husband and I were able to relax in our own sea view room with very little noise from the road outside.
We didn't have the best of weather but it really didn't matter. As soon as the rain clouds passed over the kids were in the flat lawned area with the ball and the benches in the garden were used for picnics. Walks were taken down to the local beach and brief car rides in to Padstow and even a treat for us and an evening at Fifteen at Watergate Bay.
The most important feature for us was how easy our disabled son was able to get around. Although he is small enough to carry up to bed, if our parents hadn't been with us he would have been able to get wheelchair access easily to the lower bedroom and bathroom.
We will book again for next year and would recommend the cottage whole heartedly to others - in fact we already have!
