“Excellent Accommodation”
Reviewed April 24, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Stayed at Windmill Cottage with my son, daughter-in-law and my three grandsons.
Excellent accommodation. Four bedrooms and three bathrooms means such a lot with a family to cater for.
Lovely garden with a goal for the three boys to play football with grandad.
Only drawback is the tight entrance to the property from the main road. Otherwise a perfect holiday helped by glorious spring weather.
Would recommend this property as a family holiday location.

“A very happy Christmas!”
Reviewed December 31, 2013 for a stay in December 2013

We booked this property at the end of September and the proprietor was more than helpful. Our stay was over Christmas and we wanted to be sure that everything went smoothly because of our young children and it did. This property is wonderful, quality furnishings, very clean and cosy. Gail provided a Christmas tree which our girls enjoyed decorating while we unpacked. The large lounge/kitchen make it so easy to cook and chat so no missing out on conversations. There is so much more to windmill cottage that is not mentioned and a great surprise on arrival. Loved it.

“Wonderful holiday home, close to the beach and the thriving harbour of Padstow”
Reviewed September 7, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We stayed at Windmill Cottage the last week in August and had a wonderful week. Windmill Cottage is beautifully appointed and probably more importantly beautifully clean. Teenage boys were able to play football and cricket in the garden and the beach is about a mile away down the small road opposite. We had great weather, but the cottage is well provided for with many DVDs and board games, should you not be so lucky.
The 3 bathrooms all have nice showers, the kitchen is very nicely equipped and is open plan through to the living room so nobody has to be left out if you stay in and cook. The beds are comfy and the teenagers loved the wireless network too. All this, with Padstow just down the road...truly a lovely holiday home...thank you Gail.
