    "A really lovely little cottage that is so much more welcoming than the pictures suggest. Great location in the sense of being easy walking distance to St Austell's very pleasant town centre which itself proved an ideal base for exploring the many many delights of Cornwall. The host is friendly, helpful and accommodating and has refurbished and faultlessly provisioned a previously ruined stone building at the end of his garden to a high standard. We have no complaints about the exceptionally clean interior save for a couple of minor irritations - the unfortunate (also unnecessary as it was a duplicate) positioning of a bedroom light next to that for the bathroom proving a particular challenge as it proved all to easy to find the wrong one and bathe the room and your hitherto sleeping partner in bright light at 3am or so; and then if you avoid this there's always the sound effects style creaking of the bathroom door handle to do the job! Also over the stairs leading up to the bedroom there is what is presumably a safety feature lending an eerie green glow after lights out, but that was quickly forgotten after the initial fear that we were soon to be abducted by aliens! And to be fair to future visitors I feel I should point out that, contrary to what we expected from the photo, the parking is actually quite a tight squeeze and that the cottage itself is along an alleyway that is badly in need of resurfacing, though our Astra managed to tiptoe the 50 feet or so along it effectively enough without any mishaps. All in all though these are minor details and overshadowed by the charm and comfort of what is a really great place to stay. We went in the Winter and purely due to it's lack of an outside space that you'd want to spend time in I'd be reluctant to spend a Summer break there but as a cosy, comfortable, relaxing base it is about as good as you'll find so gets a big thumbs up from us."

    "Very spacious and spotlessly clean. The building is at the foot of the owners property but feels very private. The access road is a single track alley road between the rear of each row of houses and is extremely pot holed. There is little opportunity and space to maneuver your car in and out of the access / parking area of the Coach House but the parking area itself is well maintained. You also have large gates that you can use to lock your car in and aide privacy.There is underfloor heating downstairs in the seating area but this does not extend to upstairs which can get very cold. The owner supplies a plug in heater and electric blanket for ur comfort.The mattress was very comfortable with a deep mattress topper.The hob is a ceramic hob which may take getting used to.All areas of the home were very spacious and really nicely finished.The owner met us, showed us around the home and had left a welcome basket of bread milk biscuits tea and coffee spread and a bottle of wine. The WiFi is not reliable and we ended up using an alternative supply than that provided.The train station is literally 5 mins away and really very useful, with the centre of town 10 mins away."

    "Very well presented property that was spotless and well maintained.The proprietor was a superb host and very accommodating with our arrival time.Really nice welcome pack, which would have kept us afloat for any essentials we would have forgotten to pack and good local amenities, with pubs and restaurants within a few minutes walk.Pleasantly surprised with the location of the local train station on the doorstep, because we couldn't hear any noise from the track and despite not normally travelling by public transport we used this to travel to local destinations and found it superb value for money. Located in own grounds at the bottom of the owners property, but totally private and self sufficient. Access to the private gated entrance is by small lane approximately 30 metres long. It does have pot holes but if you take your time there isn't a problem, which more than compensates for having private gated off road parking.We had a really nice winter break here and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property to family and friends."

    "Loved this cottage. The landlord was really welcoming and a great guy. The property is decorated to a very high standard and the stained glass window in the lounge is beautiful. Absolutely everything you need is provided. A nice welcome pack with a nice bottle of red wine. Enjoyed the books too. The property is up a narrow lane which could do with resurfacing but as it is a shared space with a number of houses and not just the responsility of the landlord then I can understand the reason it has not been resurfaced. This did not detract from our holiday as there was the option to park at the landlords house which is easily accessible. Parking for one car at the property which was ideal for us. The property was about a mile and a half from the coastal path and pretty harbour. A nice walk in the evening. There is a supermarket round the corner which sells fresh bread for breakfast time and a chines take away across the road. Ideal we loved it."

    "This is a perfectly pleasant property for a couple, but with a number of flaws...Some of the other reviews mention the state of the access road and they're not understating it - it really is bad. My Skoda Octavia just managed it but my wife's Mazda MX5 would have had no chance if we'd taken it.Despite being advertised, there is no wifi. The type of equipment provided by the owner is incapable of connecting to the internet in his nearby property.The fridge is very small and not really suitable if you're planning to self-cater (as we were), but probably perfectly fine if you're planning to eat out every night.As per other reviews, the green light and the fan at the top of the stairs are really irritating.Having said all that, it's very well positioned for touring the middle of Cornwall and is a short drive from several attractions and pretty villages."
