“Enjoyable 70th”
Reviewed 5 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Chose this as we liked the idea of all gathering in one large place. this was perfect. There was something for everyone. The games room and fishing were very good. Hot tub was just what we needed. It was always a bit of a concern getting together with so many family, but it worked well.

“Pleasant and quiet”
Reviewed 1 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Both myself and my partner stayed here September 2016. We spent a week in Owls Roost which is a 2-4 bed cottage. We found the grounds and property to be of a relatively decent standard. There is a pond that was popular with the fishermen, and the grounds are of adequate size. The on site games room is what you would expect and slightly better maintained than other farmhouses we have visited in Cornwall. A few minor niggles with the cottage - bathroom door doesn't close properly and slight gap in the front door that that prevents it from closing fully. That said the property was of a decent standard. Wifi was patchy despite the on site boosters. The location is quiet but easily accessible. Local town was fairly run down. The addition of China fleet club made this cottage worth the stay as the facilities are amazing. Worth a visit if you want a quiet and peaceful picturesque location.

“LOVED THE FISHING SO CLOSE TO THE LAKE”
Reviewed 18 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

This was our first fishing holiday for 5 years as my husband has a lung condition and we cannot carry the equipment needed for fishing very far. This is just perfect because the lake is no more than a few steps and we could keep the equipment tackled up and ready to go each morning. It was a warm week luckily, but if the weather had been colder it was comforting to know that we could get inside quickly to warm up if needed. The air quality is wonderful and my husband said he felt better because of it. We stayed in Lakeside Cottage which was perfect. It has a balcony and we sat there on a number of evenings looking over the lake and watching the sun go down and the stars come out. Big thank you to Frances and Neville for making us so welcome.

“Beautiful setting”
Reviewed 14 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We spent a week here with family and loved the place. The gardens and lake are beautiful and the kids loved going to feed the donkeys every day. The small games room is adequate and somewhere to go for a game of table tennis after dinner. The pool is tiny but we made use of the health club passes and enjoyed the flume and spacious swimming pool there. Plenty to do in surrounding areas within an hour from the cottages. The cottage kitchen had everything we needed and we even had a BBQ one evening. The only down side, as mentioned in other reviews, was the extremely soft mattresses - by the end of the week I found it impossible to get comfortable and resorted to sleeping on the sofa. With new mattresses this would score a 5 in my book!!

“Quality in Cornwall”
Reviewed 19 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Stayed here with the family (8 in total) for a week, cottage was spacious & exceptionally clean. Paid extra for the hot tub & have got to say it was well worth the money. Location was good with Plymouth & many other places within easy reach. Rooms very spacious & comfortable
Left alone by the hosts to enjoy our holiday but they were always on hand if we needed anything & nothing was a problem. Bedrooms, bathrooms & lounge very comfortable & spacious, kitchen was amazing with the amount of equipment.
Parking was for 3/4 cars for our cottage alone which was great, surrounding grounds were great with the fish & the Donkeys which my Grandson took great joy in feeding every day.
To sum up I would highly recommend this location & all credit to the owners

Only down side was the weather for the time of year.
