“Lovely remote cottages, great views.”
Reviewed 28 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Out in the middle of Cornish fields, really picturesque. Thyme Cottage is one of three converted cottages on a farm. As such, it's a little dark inside, but very comfortable. The outside areas are wonderful. The views are incredible. Mike and Kay were both really nice to us and always happy to help. Lots of dogs wandering around, but they were well trained and very friendly. One thing, do remember to bring towels with you, we assumed they would be provided, which they are but only at a cost. A very peaceful week. Very happy to have stayed.

“Very Welcoming and Good Central Location”
Reviewed 31 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Owners were very accommodating and went to great lengths to ensure our needs were met. Perfect accommodation for the extended family especially children, ours ranged from 2 to 77 and having an en suite bedroom on the same level as the living room was a bonus. Very centrally placed and if like us you wouldn't feel that stopping and starting for 5 hours on the M5 could be in anyway considered "normal holiday traffic" as local traffic reports repeatedly suggested when there are so many equally beautiful places to visit in this country without that problem it is an ideal base to chose for a once in a lifetime visit.

Thank you for your lovely comments.However unfortunately we have no influence over Traffic congestion around the UK on a Bank Holiday week End.We are so glad that the vast majority of our guests do not feel that coming to the beautiful south west is not a once in a lifetime experience.

“Comfortable, well appointed, attractive away-from-it-all retreat.”
Reviewed 31 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

A beautiful, quiet location for a family holiday. Everything you could want, in terms of kitchen goods. Lovely modern, comfortable beds and contemporary cottage decor.
Friendly welcome and delicious cream tea on arrival from the owners (who live on site) & their lovely, well-behaved dogs.
N.B: No guest dogs to be left alone at the property at any time, but very welcome with their owners.

“Delightful Cottage in Great Location”

For a second time we visited Lower Trengale Cottages near Liskeard, and had a wonderful weekend. On this occasion we stayed in "Thyme" cottage - interesting layout on three levels. Very clean, comfortable and well fitted out. Only two of us, but this would be ideal for a small family. Again, we found Kay & Mike very hospitable and helpful. Thoroughly enjoyed our trips to Polperro and Tintagel - both short drives from the cottages, and very impressive.
No hesitation in recommending this well managed accommodation!

“Peace & tranquility in SE Cornwall”
Reviewed 22 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

From the moment we arrived, when we were greeted with a Cornish Cream Tea, we were made to feel very welcome by the owners (Mike & Kay). Thyme cottage was larger than our need (only 3 guests plus dog) but was ideal for my wife's mother as her bedroom & bathroom was only down a couple of steps. The other bedrooms & bathrooms were in the downstairs so may not be so good for those with mobility problems. The bonus of downstairs was that it was cooler than the rest of the cottage which was very welcome as we holidayed when it was very hot !! Mike & Kay were attentive throughout our stay, without being overly so, and recommended places to go and where to eat. We'd certainly advise a meal at the London Inn (in St. Neot) and further afield (25 miles or so) at the Slipway hotel in Port Isaac. The cottage had all the mod cons you'd expect without losing it's character. Could maybe benefit from a larger TV in the lounge and provision of towels (to save on luggage). There's a nice pond (for those wanting to fish or dog exercise) on the farm or a few miles away is the picturesque Golitha falls - an ideal place to sit & read or dip your feet in the river. There's plenty to do & see in this part of Cornwall and it's not far to the North Coast for a change of scenery. Would definitely consider renting here again if coming back to Cornwall.
