    • “We found the cottage so cosy and comfortable and just as we required. The children loved their room and our room was very spacious, clean and comfortable. My daughter felt the same with her room. We loved the welcome tray, and the dog especially loved his biscuit and blanket, and the large garden. The cleanliness was exemplary and we tried to leave it as clean as we found it. All the home comforts were met and we look forward to returning next year.”

    Mrs Dempsey-Robbins, Stafford, October 2018

    • “very nice cottage , will book again but a little more attention to cleaning required i.e. cobwebs in windows and doorways and windows very dirty could not see through them when sun shining this was my only complaint though so in all very good and had a great time regards paul thornewell”

    Mr Thornewell, BURTON-ON-TRENT, September 2018

    • “The house was very well equipped, with everything you would need. Brilliant position near St Ives and very importantly near the railway station, which we made a lot of use of. Also the 2 parking spaces were invaluable. The shower was brilliant !! A nice lot of room with different rooms to choose from. Bedrooms nice and big with ample space. However i feel it would be prudent to add to the listing that the head height in some of the house goes down to about 5' 6 inches and at its max 6 foot ish, therefore anybody taller than that, i.e. myself at 6' 3, would find themselves ducking when moving around the house and a feeling of being a little hemmed in. Secondly the decor could do with updating and there is evidence of water staining quite extensively in the dining room ceiling. The garden could have done with a tidy up. Having said that we enjoyed our holiday in Cornwall but probably wouldn't return to that particular property.”

    Mr Cavanagh, Cheltenham, August 2018

    • “We all had a wonderful time and would definitely recommend Boundy's House, but be careful of small height doors and the beam going up the stairs. I was fine being a shorty lol. A lovely property with everything you would possibly need to hand. Regards Linda Stubbs”

    Mrs Stubbs, NEWPORT, July 2018

    • “Not being able to leave the dog alone was a problem. Because of the heatwave he couldn’t be left in the car either . Didn’t like cars being parked outside the lounge window and blocking the light.”

    Mr Head, Banbury, June 2018

    • “Cottage very clean, spacious and well provisioned. Ideal location for bus and train. Some negative points: 1. Info says parking for three cars - this is very optimistic; only one car fits inside gates, another behind, but that’s it. It would need to be three very, very small cars! Parking outside cottage tends to be used by other drivers. 2. Only one toilet in very small room with a cistern that takes a very long time to refil - would be very frustrating with six people staying. 3. Cottage is right on busy and noisy road and other people tend to park their cars outside windows, blocking light. Despite above however, we enjoyed our stay and would consider booking again.”

    Mr Irving, Eastbourne, June 2018
