    • “A wonderful time was had by all we have returned refreshed and ready to face life's challenges. We would like to thank everyone involved in contributing to this success from the staff at Helpful Holidays to the wonderful Lara who's response to a little mishap was prompt and efficient. This is our second visit to Tratawn and can't wait for our third, the house is comfortable and well equipped, the facilities provided kept us all entertained for hours so much we only left the house to replenish the food larder and drinks cupboard. Thank you x”

    Mrs Buck, PORTH, October 2018

    • “The house is roomy and suitable for a wide range of age groups. There is plenty of sitting space both in the lounge and for more formal dining and the kitchen is superbly equipped. If the weather is doubtful, hours of entertainment are to be found in the games room and swimming pool. Our grandchildren loved this bit of the house.”

    Mr Beer, Swindon, October 2018

    • “This was a perfect house for a mixed age group. A really imposing house but so comfortable with amazing gardens which lead down into woods on three sides. The games room and swimming pool was the icing on the cake. Meaning the kids were entertained in the evenings while the adults could relax after a day exploring Cornwall’s beautiful beaches and towns.”

    Ms Smith, Usk, September 2018

    • “Everything was fine and all went like clockwork. Well equipped, both indoors and in games room. Pool a great success as were the woodland walks for dogs and owners. Great holiday enjoyed by all - it was to celebrate a couple of special birthdays. Ideal.”

    Mrs Tibbott, HONITON, May 2018

    • “Lovely house, well equipped and comfortable. Swimming pool a huge success.”

    Mr Johnson, Wimborne, April 2018

    • “Good quality cotton bedding would have been a nice extra. Other than that the accommodation and setting were excellent. Very well equipped for a large family gathering and ideal for children. Thank you for all your help!”

    Mrs Henderson, Daventry, March 2018
