The West Country region
Cornwall's 'Med': here is Cornwall at its warmest, most sheltered; of creeks and tidal waters penetrating deep inland, deep in woods, silent except for birdsong; of wonderful gardens growing things that live nowhere else outdoors in England (marvellous in rhododendron, camellia, magnolia time, from March to end of May especially); of sailing boats everywhere decorating the sea; of harbour villages where the light is Mediterranean - dazzling in the sunshine. And really very little that is ugly has been allowed to be built.
Here is Truro, Cornwall's (small) capital, with its 20th century cathedral; Falmouth, resort town and cargo/cruise ship/yacht port, superbly sited; and the glorious Helford River. Trewithen, Trelissick, Glendurgan, Trebah, Heligan (Lost Gardens of) and Caerhays are among the finest gardens. In the very middle of Cornwall, Lanhydrock house is very special, so is its garden. Not the greatest area for beaches, but good sandy ones near Veryan and Portscatho, in St Mawes, and around Falmouth and the Helford River's mouth. Not to be missed is St Just-in-Roseland's churchyard; nor - within easy reach - is The Eden Project (see South Cornwall).
St Mawes: beautiful village (shops, pubs, restaurants, galleries) with harbour, two beaches and Henry VIII castle, at the end of the lovely Roseland Peninsula, looking across to St Anthony Head (summer pedestrian ferry), and to Falmouth and the Helford River. Pedestrian ferry to Falmouth and cruises on Carrick Roads. Sailing school; canoeing; fishing trips; regattas. St Just in Roseland, 2 miles.

"Could be a great house in a fabulous location, but hugely let down by the poor maintenance and cleanliness"
Outside back lights not working (clearly haven't worked for a long time!). Garden pitch dark in the evening, hazard particularly for elderly guests and young children, both of which we had in ou… More
Thank you very much for your feedback. I'm sorry to hear that you did not find High Meadows at it's best on this occasion.
We've spoken to the owners about your feedback and they are very sorry to hear about the problems you had. They are trying to have the outside light repaired, but it seems that there is a problem with the electrical supply and the whole unit needs to be replaced. I suspect this is why you did not receive a visit from the electrician, but I'm sorry to hear that you were not informed of this.
The owner is very sorry for the ants; the house had been vacant the week prior to your stay, and these were only discovered during the changeover of the property. On discovery the team did all they could to get rid of the ants, but it would seem they were not gone in time for your arrival. Thank you for allowing the team to come in and apply treatment during your stay.
In respect of the mattress in the master bedroom Mrs Prince says this was replaced in November of last year, but they will take all of your feedback on board for the future.
We hope very much that you had a good holiday despite the problems you experienced.

"nice house, brill views, dreadful cleanliness!"
The catalogue of disaster started as we arrived, we tried to contact the caretaker, the landline number was unobtainable, and he didn't answer his mobile. We left messages and he didn't get … More
