“Beautifully decorated, charmig cottage in excellent location.”

Reviewed 3 Aug 2015

We were met by Jacqui and Simon who had prepared a beautiful cream tea for our enjoyment. They showed us around the cottage and explained everything we needed to know and also gave us some ideas of where to eat and drink locally. They were really friendly and made us feel at home. We loved the cottage which is decorated beautifully and contains all ou need for a self catering break. They have put together a book of useful information and places to visit which is extremly useful particularly if you are new to the area. We loved the secret garden and spent time soaking up the sun, relaxing and having a drink. The cottage is in a very central location and has a train station 10 mins walk away which we used to visit Falmouth and St Ives. This was a very relaxing way to visit without the need to find a carpark space. The local pub is very friendly and the food is excdellent, booking is recommeded as it was busy every evening. Overall we had a fantastic week and will certainly be returning.

Such a kind review, thank you! We particularly appreciate the comments about the welcome you received and the decor of the cottage. It makes us realise the extra effort of ensuring our guests are content and attention to detail of the decor in the cottage enhances our guests experience. We look forward to welcoming you back in the not too distant future. Oh and remember our returning guests are treated to 'Bubbles' with their welcoming cream tea!

It sounds like you had a lovely time staying in Ancarva and enjoyed the serenity of the 'Secret Garden' and the friendly atmosphere of the local village. You know where we are if you ever fancy retuing to our beautiful part of Cornwall! Thank you again.
