“Lovely stay again (we stayed in February 2015), mixed weather but this didn’t keep us in! Great day at Caerhays Castle (highly recommended) & also superb day at Trelissick. Sunday lunch at the Pandora Inn at Mylor – go for the carvery – excellent, and lovely walks to be had from the pub. Thanks Lucy for a spotlessly clean cottage.”

“Had a wonderful 4 nights – so comfortable & also well equipped. Loved sitting in the late afternoon sun in the conservatory. Visited Trebah Gardens (45 mins drive) – amazing views & ticket allows entry for 7 days. Also went to Padstow – great galleries and pasties! Also good coastal walks around Gorran Haven and Mevagissey. Hope to
return again. Many thanks.”

“Thank you very much again for our lovely “Cornish Welcome” with the scones and cream etc, so thoughtful and kind! We loved our second holiday in ‘Waterlily Cottage’ and found the wild flowers, scenery etc enchanting. There is nothing you haven’t thought of to provide every comfort for your visitors. Hope to come again some time.”
