“We have had a fantastic time in this lovely cottage – a real escape from the hustle and bustle of ordinary life! Thank you for making us feel welcome – there has been nothing missing that we have wanted! We will be recommending you!”
Mark, Ali, Sam and Beth Padfield – Dec 2015

“All four of us had a wonderful 4 days here at “Waterlily”. The cottage suited us perfectly and was very comfortable. The area gave our friends from New England a “taste” of Cornwall. Thank you.”
Beverley and Graham Jones – Eckington, Worcs; Joyce Ford and Ginny Paletsky – Hampton, New England, USA, Sept-Oct 2015

“Our first time in Cornwall and we are so glad we chose Waterlily Cottage. Superbly equipped and so well located to visit all parts of the county. Highlights were Kynance Cove, Eden Project, Minack and Lost Gardens of Heligan. We would not hesitate to return to Waterlily or to recommend it to friends and family. Thanks also to Lucy for keeping in touch. Sorry to have missed you.”

“Thank you very much for a very warm welcome – the cream tea went down very well indeed! We have stayed in Cornwall many, many times and can honestly say that Waterlily Cottage is the cosiest and most well-equipped accommodation we have been in. We recommend eating at the Hawkins Arms and we particularly enjoyed Porthcurnick beach – beautiful sandy beach, great for swimming, rock pools and food at “The Hidden Hut”! “We will be back”….!!”
