You are recommended to visit our own website under the "visit website"' section at the bottom of this page, where you can see exactly what is and is not in the cottage.

The Holiday Lettings site no longer allows us to use a guest book section, so you can see what a good time people have had in the cottage, they prefer the Trip Advisor Reviews but guests are often too busy when they get home to fill them in and so we are putting some of our guest comments below. You can see all our guest comments from the day we opened on our own website at the link below.

Gordon, Tracey, Kieran & Kirsty – Llanwit Major 14-15 May 2015

We would just like to say a big thank you for making our stay such an awesome one, we all thoroughly enjoyed it. Fantastic welcome pack. We look forward to seeing you again in August. Great hosts.

Kerry, Jessica, Billy & Max – Kinglangley Herts - 7th-10th April 2015

We had a fantastic time stating at “Sticky's Place”. It was a perfect location, one minute from my brother, who we were visiting. S close to lots of lovely beaches and places to visit. The weather also was a bonus as well. I will be recommending “Sticky's Place" to family and friends. We will also be back. Thank you for making us feel welcome and for the welcome pack which was really handy.

Naomi, Mark & Tamsin, Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire – 6th Feb 20 2015

Absolutely brilliant! We were having so much trouble finding a place to stay around St. Austell that would let us stay for just one night. With a baby we needed somewhere for her to sleep and a kitchen to make up feeds. This place is perfect! Luckily Lorinda and John came to the rescue and not only let us stay but gave us such a warm welcome (literally) and even turned the heaters on for when we got back in the evening! So appreciated and will pass on good comments and if we need to stay again this is top of our list! Thanks.

Linda & Emma Stafford and Tiverton, Cheshire 14-16 November 2014
