Recent reviews

“We have really enjoyed our stay at Waterlily Cottage; it is more than adequate for our needs even as a party of 2 adults and 3 young children – there was space-a-plenty – well equipped and nicely presented the cottage is a nice place to hang out at. We have found the amenities -the farm shop – brilliant and have regularly bought them out of sausages (fabulous), ham, lamb, little miss muffet cheese, ciabatta rolls and various fruit and veg. The chippy does ‘scraps’!
and the fish is very good! We had a lovely meal at the Hawkins. On the whole we found the local people in Probus very friendly and welcoming and easy to chat with. Probus has been a great location as a launch pad into Cornwall. Our favourite beach was Porthcurnick when compared with Kynance Cove or Perran Sands. Zacharey’s favourite place was the Lost Gardens of Heligan; Max enjoyed the beaches with his new found water confidence; Alexander really enjoyed the Eden Project. In essence we have found plenty to see and do from Probus regardless of the weather which has been unusually changeable. We should like to stay again – perhaps next summer, same time – same place. Other places we visited included, Tintagel Castle, Pendennis Castle, Flambards, Mevagissey – we saw dolphins and barrel jellyfish (no basking sharks though), Port Isaac, Falmouth, The Lizard – we saw seals, St Nicholas Point and we stopped and spent half a day at Lanhydrock on the way here. There is plenty more to see and do yet!”
