    • “What a superb find..a holiday cottage that's characterful and quirky. We loved it! And dog friendly too...something that's high on our list of priorities. We recommend Uphill Cottage very highly indeed. Uphill Cottage is in such a wonderful peaceful, friendly locals, excellent host, lovely beaches within a short drive.The cottage had such a welcoming appeal and was full of character. Really cosy with or without the log stove, but we did have a log fire each evening! We didn't want for anything. The area has a lot to offer too with the harbour at Padstow and its ferry to Rock. If you like a nice flat walk then the Camel Trail from Padstow to Wadebridge is for you Thank you to Malcolm our host. We know where to come when we next holiday on North Cornwall! love Jacqui, Steve and Magik the hound”

    Mrs Doswell, Southampton, October 2018

    Mr Pilipczuk, Gloucester, September 2018

    • “Charming cottage in a very restful location just as we expected. The owner was very friendly and helpful and the neighbours also made time to talk to us. An ideal base for exploring the beautiful Cornish coast and places of interest.”

    Mr Hitchings, Stone, September 2018

    • “Uphill was exactly as Sykes described it so we had no disappointments when we got there. Lovely cottage and really nice owner who went out of his way to make our stay comfortable.”

    Mr Wedgwood, Stoke-on-Trent, September 2018

    • “The cottage perfect for our needs, very comfortable and homely, with everything we could have wanted provided. Location was ideal for local beaches, towns and visitor attractions - in short, a superb holiday, and one we will definitely hope to book again!”

    Mr Bell, Newcastle-under-Lyme, August 2018

    • “An absolutely lovely cottage in a great location. The cottage is well equipped and felt spacious for our family of 4. Penrose itself is a tranquil little village, and local beaches are only a 10 minute drive from Uphill cottage making it a great location for exploring the North coast. The owners are friendly and very helpful and provided us with a map to allow us to find walking routes in the area. We’d wholeheartedly recommend a stay at Uphill Cottage to others looking for a peaceful getaway.”

    Mr Mannings, Salisbury, August 2018

    • “A comfortable cottage in an excellent position with everything you needed. Just a short drive to a lovely beach. The host Malcolm was welcoming and very helpful. We had a wonderful holiday at Uphill cottage.”

    Mrs Pitman, St. Albans, July 2018

    • “The owners were lovely and very welcoming. Great holiday in a lovely part of Cornwall. The whole family had a wonderful time!”

    Mrs Owen, Frodsham, July 2018

    • “Wonderful cottage, very friendly owners. Cottage was exactly as described with regards to size, room layout, facilities etc., but was even nicer 'in the flesh'! Perfect location for beach and local shopping for supplies. All communication with Helpful Holidays was excellent.”

    Mrs Murton, WALLINGFORD, July 2018

    • “Cozy and beautifully quiet. A great location with access to many great beaches and amenities.”

    Mr Elkington, Nottingham, June 2018

    • “Beautiful location, gorgeous views. Great for local beaches, amenities and Newquay/Padstow/A39/A30 (if you prefer a more authentic Cornish holiday - which we do!) The cottage is clean, spacious and welcoming. The conservatory is a great bonus (we watched the lightning one night for hours out there). Beds are clean and comfy with nice bedding. We travelled as two adults and 2 children with the dog, it was perfect for us. Malcolm the owner is very helpful about local activities if you need suggestions, he also lives nearby so on hand if needed but very chilled and non-intrusive. We loved it and hope to return!”

    Miss McIlroy, Northampton, May 2018

    • “A comfortable cottage and the recent redecoration has made it even more agreeable.”

    Mrs Stephenson, Stockport, May 2018

    • “We had a fabulous week at Uphill Cottage - it had everything we needed for a perfectly relaxing holiday, whatever the weather. We couldn't have wished for a more welcoming, helpful and friendly owner. Location is superb - tiny hamlet in a beautiful and peaceful rural setting - just a short drive from some of the best dog friendly and stunning beaches in North Cornwall. We're very much looking forward to a return visit later in the year. Absolutely would not hesitate in recommending a stay here - you would certainly not be disappointed.”

    Ms Blackmore, Nottingham, May 2018

    • “Lovely cottage and very nice and accommodating owners. The doors are very small so watch your head! Very quaint old cottage in a lovely village and nearby lots of things to do. Had everything you need already there which was great, such as washing up liquid and hand soap. Only issue was the hoover smelt of wet dog when we used it but that's obviously because it's pet friendly so next time we will book one that isn't. Shabby chic and with good countryside views from most windows. No signal but the wifi was fast so no complaints there. The welcome book was very handy as we needed to visit a GP during our stay.”

    Miss Townsend, Leamington Spa, May 2018
