Hi Les, Gary,
Really glad that you enjoyed your stay with us so much and thanks for taking the time to leave a review for other travellers to enjoy. Sorry it took so long to respond. We've been without access to our reviews for over a month now and just got it back!
We're in a pea, green bean, nectarine and tomato glut currently so if you fancy popping down for some more home grown fruit and veg! :-)
Good luck with your own renovations btw.
All the best,
Chris & Jags

"A must stay hidden gem"

So glad you enjoyed your stay with us. Thank you very much, for both such a great review, and also one that is very informative and helpful to others looking for places to stay in Cornwall. Hope to see you again next year and also hope the sea trout are more accommodating too!

"A well appointed cottage beautifully restored in a lovely location with generous owners."

We had an idyllic week staying in The Lodge Cottage which was well placed for touring the whole of Cornwall. The cottage was sensitively restored and all facilities were high end. It had wonderful … More

Thank you very much for taking the time to leave a review and share your experiences in Cornwall with others on Tripadvisor.
We are so pleased you enjoyed the cottage and appreciated the hard work that has gone into making it what it is. I must admit we are quite envious of both the views you have from the cottage and, as you so succinctly put it, the strategically placed patio which catches the sun right up to sunset. As it's better than the main house in both aspects!
Was a real pleasure having you both stay and you're obviously more than welcome back any time.

"Great place, well equipped"

A lovely welcoming place to stay situated not to far from Looe.
On arrival, which was quite late we found the accomadation lovely and tidy and also with welcoming provisions to help get our holiday started. The owners were very friendly and were able to reccomend local places to visit and eat.
Very private and relaxing, would definately stay again in the future!

Thanks for taking the time to leave such a lovely review.
So pleased to hear you had a nice and relaxing time, especially given the arduous journey you had to get down to Cornwall. Would love to see you again some time in the future...

"Perfect Cottage"

Thank you Chris and Jags for making us feel so welcome. Your cottage is cosy, cute and absolutely wonderful! The cottage has everything you could possibly need and we thoroughly enjoyed your homemade flapjacks!! They were very scrumptious! The cottage is perfectly located as we were only 8 minutes away from the lovely coastal town of Looe which we strongly recommend anybody to go and see. It makes for a lovely stroll and if a nice sunny day, the beach is nice too! Lisekard, Polperro and Fowey are not too far either! We enjoyed the views from the kitchen and lounge of the surrounding hills and the cows that kept us company! It was a perfect location that catered for relaxation! No busy roads or noisy traffic just the lovely calm of the countryside with the birds singing! Thank you again and we shall surely be recommending your cottage to others! Nadia and Frankie

Thanks Guys for taking the time to review your stay with us. So pleased you got out and about and enjoyed the local places and attractions with it being your first time to Cornwall. Jags will have to come up with something even more special if you come again, so best give us lots of notice to get practising in the kitchen! All the best and hope to see you again when you are next down in the South West.

"We felt like invited guests."

The cottage was comfortable, very clean, and well equipped. In fact we couldn't think of anything it didn't have. The Welcome Pack was, well, very welcome - very thoughtful and generous. The cottage is well located to explore Cornwall, and we appreciated the advice from Chris and Jags of places to see. We enjoyed meeting both of them, and they made us feel more like guests than customers. We'd definitely like to return to Cornwall.

Thanks for taking the time to review the Old Rectory. It was a real pleasure having you stay and we were quite honoured you picked our place for your stay in Cornwall coming all the way over from New Zealand. You were rhe most perfect "guests" one could ask to have stay in their property. Hope too see you again one day.... All the best, Chris & Jags.
