“Fantastic place to stay - pet friendly”
Reviewed 8 April 2017 for a stay in March 2017

person found this review helpful

Newquay, Cornwall. 2 Adults, 1 Dog.
Just had a 4 night stay in the lovely Green Cottage. A fairly new property decorated and furnished to a very high standard throughout. Lovely kitchen with everything you could possibly think of provided. Bathrooms excellent with powerful shower in main.
Ample space for a family with pet included, small but ideal garden with astro turf and paved area, ratten garden furniture, shed for storage.
I would not hesitate to recommend this property to anyone visiting Newquay. If you are a bit fussy like me and worry about leaving the comforts and cleanliness of home then I can assure you, you will not be disappointed staying here.
Lovely welcome pack on arrival too.

“Lovely house BUT...”
Reviewed 8 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Lovely house, very modern. It's not a 10 min walk to the beach like described, we had to take the car everytime. Same with the town. The garden is tiny, so I'm assuming this is why there are no pictures of it, which was very disappointing when you have a dog. The rubbish needs collecting frequently. When we got there the bin was full, and was not emptied. Which was very annoying. Wifi is extremely slow. But the house is beautiful. It's slightly over priced in my opinion.

Thank you for your review of Green Cottage.

We disagree with the comments you have made. Firstly, it is approximately 10 to 15 minutes to walk into town which I timed when we first took the property on.

Secondly, the courtyard garden is described as such and is perfectly adequate for two couples and a dog. There is isn't a picture of it as this was not finished at the time we took the photographs. An updated picture will be posted after the season has finished.

Thirdly, the rubbish is collected every Monday morning and this is the Housekeeper's responsibility. The wifi has a strong speed set up so we can only assume you were on it when there was heavy usuage around you.

We consider the property to be excellent value as mentioned by previous guests and in fact for 2017 we have slightly increased the price.

Kind regards,

“Good place to stay but a few issues”
Reviewed 13 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

I stayed here with family and my dog for 9 nights. Bare in mind this is a mid-terrace house with a main road beside it which can cause quite some noise. At first glance it is a lovely modern property and well decorated, but during our stay we did have a few issues:

Important issues:
• There were no curtains in the smaller room, which meant that by 5am the room was completely bright which made it difficult to sleep.
• There were no instructions for what to do with waste and recycling. Where we live, green bins are for plastic recycling, not black bags, so we really weren't sure what to do.
• We were put off by the amount of waste left by the previous tenants that still hadn't been collected before we left the property. It will still be there for the next set of tenants!
• The back door is very difficult to lock/unlock.

Lesser issues:
• The main bathroom shower isn't very powerful.
• The fire alarm is very sensitive, we didn't even burn any food and it still went off twice just from the heat of the oven.

Positives:
• Good location on the outskirts of town (albeit the development has narrow roads with a lot of parked cars)
• Well decorated and stocked with cutlery, shower mats, towels, bedding etc
• Parking for two cars
• Spacious inside for a two bedroom property
• Good for the dog

We would to stay here again but only if they were to put up some curtains, fix the back door and gave us some information on what to do with our waste/recycling.

Thank you for your review of Green Cottage. Overall you appeared to have enjoyed your stay which we would expect as this is one of our most popular dog friendly properties.

However, from your observations the Owner has responded as follows:

1. The Owner will look at installing blackout blinds asap as this issue has arisen before.

2. The Owner will place some instructions on how to deal with rubbish and recycling for future guests.

3. The Owner will make sure the Housekeeper deals with all previous tenants rubbish on the changeover day before the new tenants come into the property.

4. The Owner who is very good with DIY will address all of the property niggles you mentioned, including the back door locks, the shower flow to see how it can be increased, and deal with the sensitive fire alarm.

They are not major issues and can be dealt with swiftly so please be assured they will be attended to this year and therefore we look forward to seeing you again back in Green Cottage in 2017!

Do ring us beforehand when you decide to book your holiday in 2017 for assurance that everything will have been attended to.

Thank you for your positive review of Green Cottage and the owners will be delighted with your feedback.

This has proved to be our most popular dog friendly cottage so far and overall the nearby road does not cause guests any problems.

We look forward to seeing you again next year.

“Warm, comfortable, well positioned for the town and Fistral.”
Reviewed 17 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

A warm and comfortable new house with all the facilities that you would need. Two parking spaces too.
I found that it was easy walking from the house to the town centre and to Fistral beach, maybe ten to fifteen minutes.
Closer than that, is the Lakeside Cafe, which has a really good steak night midweek.
