“Cosy, comfortable and providing for your every need”
Our journey through pre-Christmas storms was quite horrendous but the welcome made it totally worthwhile with a Christmas tree in the corner and mince pies waiting on the worktop. The accommodation is compact with four adults and a dog in situ, but doesn't feel squashed and ticks every box with the downstairs wet room, the upstairs ensuite and a kitchen area which provided everything required in coping with a full Christmas dinner. The bed upstairs was perhaps the most comfortable we have experienced when staying in hotels, B.& B.s or this type of self-catering accommodation. The accommodation has been decorated and furnished very tastefully and thoughtfully. It's lovely to sit and watch the bird life in the estuary/bay from the upstairs window and there's plenty of scope for walking locally, with Rame Head and Whitsand Beach not too far away either.
“A little gem.”
A very well finished stable conversion set along side a tidal estuary. Plenty of on site parking, some excellent dog walks near bye and good local amenities. An ideal retreat for a couple and their dog.
“Peaceful, comfortable and clean.”
We stayed here as a family of 4 for two nights, our primary school aged children loved it as much as we did. Perfect place to stay, all mod-cons, clean, well maintained but has kept the charm of the original stable buildings. Lovely courtyard (barbecue provided was used!), very peaceful and beautiful location on the lake. Mary was fantastic - really welcoming and friendly without being "in your face"! thanks,
The accomodation was perfect - modern, spotlessly clean, private and tranquill, in a beautiful setting. A very relaxing stay and didn't want to leave!!!!!!!!!! The owners were lovely and provided us with scones, jam, clotted cream, tea etc to welcome us. Highly recommended!
“A hidden "gem!!"”
A truly wonderful base for exploring this tiny corner of Cornwall. So much to see and do and a walkers paradise! Woodpark Stables is perfect for a small family but even more perfect for two!! The accommodation is cleverly laid out and wants for nothing There are amazing. river views and a sheltered courtyard that is both totally private and a sun trap! We were afforded our total freedom by the owner, who having showed us around, left us to enjoy a cream tea - an added bonus. We can't wait to return!!
“Beautiful surroundings. Very friendly. Great Cream Tea. Lovely Cottage. 5*”
The service from Mary all the way through from the booking process, to arrival and departure was excellent. A very friendly a talented lady who makes excellent scones and jam to accompany the much needed cuppa on your arrival. When we entered the property I made sure to take some piccies (before our stuff exploded everywhere) to show friends and family as everything was well kept, very clean and modern. It does not disapoint in the slightest. The benefit of having two shower rooms was that my 6ft 2" husband could use the down stairs wet room as he was a little too tall for the upstairs shower, I however had no problems at all :) Being 8 months pregnant I didn't explore much of the local area by foot but everything was an easy drive, with ample parking in the village. I would reccomend a trip to the village green grocers and tea rooms, and the Chippy (don't walk back with your food though as it will be cold).
“An Oasis in Cornwall”
My partner and I were after a relaxing holiday in a part of the country we had never been to before. Although we had initially looked into more densely-populated areas of Cornwall, we stumbled across this delightful accommodation in a seemingly forgotten part of the Southwest. We were warmly welcomed by the hosts and shown around. The scones and clotted cream were a lovely touch after a lengthy five-hour drive down from the Midlands. The property has secure parking and is very remote, yet close to the centre of Millbrook, which has a Co-op, Spar, a local pub and a few takeaway places, including a fantastic fish and chip shop called Posh Nosh. Woodpark Stables is, as you might guess, a converted stables which now stands as a lovely two-level one bedroom cottage with an en-suite bathroom and a downstairs wet room. The open plan kitchen and living room is light and airy and has an electric hob, oven, dining table, sofa bed and television. The bed was very comfortable and the skylights in the ceiling allowed us to take in all the fantastic scenery. There was also a television in the bedroom, as well as a built-in wardrobe. Millbrook itself is a very pleasant area, and perfect for a quiet getaway. We were lucky to have such fantastic weather, although anything less certainly wouldn't have dampened what was a great holiday. My partner and I hope to go back again next year and we both thoroughly recommend it to couples of all ages looking for a relaxing break.
“all you could wish for”
really beautiful location which we found easily.very friendly host, nothing too much trouble with very much appreciated home made scones, clotted cream and jam with tea on arrival.lovely clean linen and very well equiped accomodation with ample living space for 3 adults and one lively 3 year old.would definitely return in the near future, thank you very much for a lovely stay. the only downside was it wasnt long enough!
“Excellant barn, a real home from home”
Only spent two nights here but would have stayed longer if not for work commitments. Had a wonderful peaceful time,just great for de-stressing. The Barn is absolutely lovely,well equiped and the owner couldn't be more obliging. The cream tea that was left for our arrival was absolutely beautiful and even a pint of milk was put in the fridge !! We will certainly be back in the near future. Thanks Mary
“Comfortable cottage, with friendly owners, in beautiful location.”
From the moment we arrived we were made to feel welcome, with tea, coffee, milk, a pile of scones, jam and cream awaiting us. The converted stable building has plenty of space for 2 people and is well equipped for cooking. The sofa and bed are comfortable and the views over the estuary are beautiful. It is on a quiet road, and a short walk into Millbrook where there are a couple of shops, including a co-op and a friendly pub. It is well located for walks around the coast path and visits to Whitesands beach. There are some nice pubs in Kingsand and Cawsand too. We took our windsurfing equipment which we could store safely in the secure patio area. Although it was possible to windsurf directly from the cottage at high tide, the best place we found was round the coast a bit - St Johns Lake.
