“Lovely, comfortable accommodation, great attention to detail with hospitable, friendly hosts”
Reviewed 23 May 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Enjoyed our stay very much, a haven to return to after exploring many of Cornwall's scenic
walks and towns. The annex was cosy and contained all we needed to be self contained.
Especially appreciated the little extras provided on our arrival and enjoyed Kathy and Terry's hospitality and friendliness. Aso enjoyed delightful garden setting.

“Shasta Home from Home”
Reviewed 23 January 2014 for a stay in September 2013

Shasta Annexe is a lovely clean accommodation with views over the owners beautiful garden. Visitors are allowed in the garden-a must for enthusiastic gardeners. The annexe is attached to the owners Bungalow but you feel as though you have the place to yourselves. The annexe is located in Mawnan Smith, which is a warm and friendly Cornish Village. The location of the annexe is perfect and within walking distance of both the Red Lion Pub and other useful services for your stay. Visits to The Helford Passage are a must. Both the Trebah and Carwinion Gardens are located near by and both must be on your agenda.
The owner Kathy is very warm and welcoming and she provides an excellent service and welcoming pack.
We have visited Shasta for 2 years and have always felt welcome and part of the community.
I would highly recommend a visit.

“Shasta Annex, Kath & Brian Terry, Mawnan Smith, area - all excellent.”
Reviewed 19 January 2014 for a stay in March 2013

We've stayed with Kathy & Brian Terry in Shasta Annex every year since 2010 & will be going again this year. We have visited Mawnan Smith every year since 1986, (except 1), & have stayed with Kathy & Brian Terry from 2010 & are going again this year.
Kathy & Brian are nice people, very welcoming with nothing too much trouble should you need them.
Shasta Annex is quite compact but plenty big enough for 2 with the plenty of room in both the bedroom & bathroom. Everything you need is in the kitchen etc. & spotlessly clean through out.
Dogs love the enclosed garden (shared with Amber).
Excellent pub grub in Red Lion (400yds.), walking from doorstep, plenty to see & do, wonderful scenery especially round Helford Passage, Falmouth is 'a must do' visit as are the local public gardens - Trebah, Carwinian & Glendurgan, all within 0.5 miles.

“Excellent centre for sightseeing in Cornwall”
Reviewed 18 January 2014 for a stay in June 2013

We stayed for a month at this holiday rental. The owners (Kathy and her husband) live on site and made us very welcome almost like family. The self contained, fully equipped and very comfortable, annexe is ideal for 2 adults. The village is "olde world". A thatched roof inn is the village centre and the Post Office, Grocery Store, Cafe and doctors surgery are all within a short walking distance. Falmouth is a 10 min drive, Trebah Gardens a 15 min walk (A must Visit). There are some quaint fishing villages nearby, well worth visiting. All in all a wonderful place to stay and visit
