- Very Good
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.
“lovely cottage, very welcoming”
We just returned from a lovely week in St Agnes, the roads are a bit tight in St Agnes but we managed. The cottage has everything you need and want, little touches like kitchen roll and washing up liquid. A nice selection of games in the lounge for those less then sunny days. We had a superb sunday roast at The Peterville, the chines was very good too. we found the chip shop inthe village great too. We found it an excellent base for everywhere we wanted to go. The best road to approach it was the B3277, not B3285. The Treasure Park nearby was great, have a go on the 4D mine adventure (£10 for family ticket). Best pasty there by miles, we had the miners platter, yum!! alround excellent holiday. Julia was very nice and always available to help with anything. Brilliant host.
It was lovely meeting you and your fantastic dog,Scout.So pleased you liked the cottage and do hope that you'll be back.We are always happy to hear when guests enjoy Innisbrook and St.Agnes as much as we do!
“Great tucked-away spot - perfect for St Agnes or wider area”
Got away for a week (just my partner and I) and lucked into this cottage. It's tucked up a quiet country lane within easy walking distance of St Agnes itself. Owner was very nice / helpful, property was very well presented and it was a great place to return to every night after exploring. We have visited Cornwall on several occasions, and this is a great spot whether you are looking for a 'local' experience on the north coast, or visiting the rest of Cornwall by car. Truro itself was about 15 mins away - once you know where you are going! Thoroughly recommended (and give the Chinese restaurant at the bottom of the lane a go too)
So glad you enjoyed your stay and that you liked being tucked away at the edge of the village-all the amenities with the benefit of peaceful surrounds!We hope to welcome you back in the future.
“Excellent! Very helpful & friendly owners”
A lovely cottage, gorgeous setting. Careful of the narrow, windy road that gets you there, but well worth it. Owners could not do enough to help and make our stay more comfortable.
We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay and hope that you will visit us again.
