"Does the job, but no more"
The surroundings and garden are really nice, and the cottage itself is very clean and has everything you need. The owner, Julia, was very nice and provided us with a bottle of wine, milk and cream tea… More
We were surprised at your comments.The cottage is typical size for a Cornish miner's cottage and we think that the photos do reflect that.Other guests have commented that our prices are very reasonable and in order to keep our prices down there is an electric meter but we do give some initial electric and it is set very reasonably.We are sorry that the central heating broke down and as you know we immediately called our plumber,put two electric radiators in the cottage ,money in the meter to run them and gave you an extra bottle of wine for the inconvenience.It wasn't a case of not knowing how the heating worked-we didn't want to alter the settings before our plumber arrived.

So pleased that you found the cottage good value-it is important to us that we give our guests a good value holiday.The cottage is actually dating back to 1714,but we had it renovated to add height to the bedrooms a few years ago.

I recently stayed in St Agnes for the first time. We were so blessed to find this beautiful quaint cottage with lots of original features. It was a great place to bring my young children as everything was catered for. The hostess and her son were incredibly accommodating and very helpful. We enjoyed the cosy atmosphere and the beautiful Cornish countryside that surrounded us. The beach which is a ten minute walk was just lovely and my children enjoyed the rock pools and we even saw the sun. I will definately be recommending the house to my friends and will visit again :)
We enjoyed meeting you and the two children and to know that they enjoyed the trips to the beach in spite of the season!Hopefully when you next visit it will be in the summer holidays and no doubt they will want to live on the beach!So pleased that you loved the cottage with it's features and we look forward to welcoming you back when you return in the school summer holiday.

"A lovely warm cosy cottage"
I will be recommending this lovely little place to all our friends, it is truly a warm, cosy cottage. The land lady has been devastated by the comment from the last guest. All of it is absolute rubbish! The lady who lives on the site , makes you feel so welcome, and does everything to make your stay a happy one! Thank you, and we will be back again shortly!
It was lovely to meet you both and we are glad to know that you enjoyed your stay enough to book another week in June.We were happy to read that you were warm and cosy and that you didn't find it difficult to park your four wheel drive.We look forward to welcoming you on your return visit in the summer.

"Compact Cottage - difficult vehicular access"
We found a very compact cottage with everything you would need to self cater within easy strolling distance of the centre of St Agnes, although quite a bit further to the seafront if you were carrying lots of gear. We took a winter break and I guess the weather was against us, but, the combined effort of an inefficient woodburner and tepid central heating system failed to produce that cosy glow. The property is located at the top of an incredibly narrow stone walled lane which made access tricky and I guess your average family sized vehicle would take home some lasting impressions. Our hostess - as is reported elsewhere, makes a good effort to welcome you, but, although questioned at the time of booking, did not describe the parking and access for our vehicle fairly.
We were surprised by the content of your review as it is in stark contrast to the comments of other guests.When we welcome guests we always point out that we are only next door if they need us.You did not raise any of these issues during your stay,but only as you were leaving when you asked for a reduction in the rent you had paid(you had already had a £50 winter reduction in the price).The C/H system is new and the log burner very efficient as other guests have told us and we always leave logs and fuel for it.My son tested the C/H as soon as you left and found it to be working perfectly.There are extra blankets left in the bedroom cupboard and a portable convector heater in the living room for instant heat.
Regarding access,one of our reviewers has written that although narrow, the lane did not pose problems for the average family car.When guests book we always ask if they have a people carrier or large vehicle,as they are better parking a few meters away at the bottom of our lane where it is wider access.I was told by you that your van was a normal size,but remember commenting on your arrival that your vehicle was the largest we'd had on the drive (the size of a Ford Transit)and suggested that you could park it in a wider area,but you said you were okay with the drive.
We are sorry that you did not raise any of these issues while you were staying with us as we pride ourselves on looking after our guests to ensure that they have a happy and comfortable stay.
