“We had a lovely stay here in Waterlily Cottage. We really loved the area and the weather was quite fine too. Congratulations for your refined taste in decorating the cottage. It’s a very pleasant place to live in. Thanks a lot for the Cornish cream teas that we loved so much. Best Wishes. Florence and Co”

“We have had a great week here at Waterlily Cottage. We have stayed in Probus several times now and this is by far the best we have stayed in. Very comfortable and clean. Many thanks for the welcome Lucy and for the cream teas. Best wishes.”

“What a wonderful cottage ‘Waterlily’ is! I’m sure the Owner/Housekeeper could not have thought of anything else to improve our comfort and convenience. Delightful pictures, cushions and ornaments which all add to the
cottage’s charm. We also enjoyed the scones and coffee on our arrival and soon the local fish and chips. Later in the week the ‘pizza gentleman’ provided us with very tasty pizzas! The superb scenery and gorgeous weather means we leave with reluctance! Thank you!”
