Beautiful Well Furnished Cottage - Great Find

By Ed s on 14-Oct-2020

We spent 5 days here in October and loved it. The barn conversion has been done well and is clean, well kitted-out and extremely comfortable. Jane was friendly, welcoming and determined to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. Would highly recommend.

Just The Ticket

By John S on 06-Nov-2019

Great cottage - warm, comfortable, well-equipped, clean, well-provisioned, good wi-fi (necessary with a 17 year old around …) and in a perfect location for Falmouth and the surrounding area. We had a short stay on this, our first visit, but would love to stay again for a longer period. Thank you to Jane for hosting this cottage with such care and attention.
