“We’ve had a great 2 weeks in Cornwall and enjoyed staying at the cottage very much. Although the weather was not always sunny we saw a lot of Cornwall and found beautiful beaches and interesting sights. Thank you for the warm welcome with scones and clotted cream. This was a lovely surprise!”
The Lanzinger Family, Austria, August 2014

“This was our second holiday here and we love it so much we have re-booked for next year! Cottage and village all perfect as usual. This year our recommendations for families would be Springfields Farm (don’t expect cleanliness but do expect fun!) and Falmouth has beautiful shops! Thank you Lucy again for looking after us. Oh and the “Time for Tea” Cafe on the corner is lovely with AMAZING CAKES! Hayley”
