    • “Very good location, peaceful and close to all tourist attractions. Hassle free arrivals and departure. Local restaurants are just stunning, all use local produce that far exceeded expectations. The basket of produce was a touch and we enjoyed all the contents...”

    Mr Campbell, Reading, October 2018

    • “Very nice cottage,great location ,but unfortunately found the bed to be very uncomfortable The kitchen area was quite well equipped, but the gas cooker and oven was rather enormous, and the oven difficult to light, and the fridge/freezer rather too small.”

    Mr Sear, Church Stretton, September 2018

    • “The Mowhay was the best holiday cottage we have ever stayed in. It was clean, comfortable and warm. Full of little extras which made us feel very welcome. Very dog friendly. There was a bowl of water waiting for the dogs plus a few chew bones and a safe garden for them to play. The indoor swimming pool was lovely. Jon and Ann were very friendly and welcoming. Most indefinitely would book again.”

    Mrs Berry, Gravesend, September 2018

    • “The cottage was in idyllic settings, off the main road in a lovely private country courtyard, The Michaud Cottage was extremely well equipped, clean and comfortable. We arrived to a fabulous welcome hamper which even included treats for our pet dog. Jon and Ann who own the cottage were so friendly and helpful. The adjacent indoor swimming pool was such a luxury, a morning dip before breakfast set us up for the day. Jon and Ann also left a cosy blanket for our pooch with a fresh bowl of water following our journey from the Midlands. It’s a fantastic spot to be based enabling us to visit all the lovely sites and places in Cornwall.”

    Mr Edwards, Wolverhampton, August 2018

    • “What a wonderful place to stay! We were met by the lovely owner on arrival and given some great pointers on places to go. The Mowhay is a beautiful cottage, and very well equipped. The garden was a great size for the dog to play and the swimming pool was a massive hit. I would highly recommend staying here.”

    Mrs Pegg, Frome, August 2018

    • “The cottage lived up to the description and then some. It was very clean warm and cosy. The gift basket was an excellent touch. The pool was also excellent. Would go back in a heartbeat.”

    Mr Wilson, Nottingham, July 2018

    • “Lovely welcome with Cornish goodie basket containing scones, cream and jam. The bed was uncomfortable for my hisband as it had a footboard it was too short for him , he's 6.3 foot. Otherwise an excellent choice and location was perfect.”

    Mrs Schulze, Ashford, May 2018
