“small but perfectly formed”
Reviewed 4 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

This little cottage has everything you need for a stay in Cornwall. It is very well equipped, clean and tidy. The owners live next door and are on hand should you need them but never in your face !. The coastline around this area is stunning, the cottage is well placed for visits to the lost gardens of Heligan and the Eden Project. 7 mls from St Austell, close to Fowey and Mevagissey too.There are some lovely quiet bays nearby and you don't have to travel far for a good restaurant or pub. i would thoroughly recommend this holiday let and would be happy to make a return visit.

Stayed for a week in early July. The cottage had everything we needed and was ideally placed for Eden (easy walk), Charlestown , Fowey and Mevagissey. Extremely friendly and helpful owners just next door. Highly recommended.

“Beware!”
Reviewed 21 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

What really lets this cottage down is the fact that if the owner (next door) is not in then you may find yourself in the same situation as us with NO hot water on a Sunday evening as it had gone off. All hot water heating is controlled from the owners house, which we were told on arrival. Luckily for us the owner was at home that evening

In reply to this review. We always try to provide everything to make a stay in Admiral Cottage as enjoyable and comfortable as possible for our guests. The lack of hot water was an unfortunate occurrence which was rectified as soon as possible and to our knowledge has never happened before. We are sorry that this guest needed to express their concern regarding this but hope they enjoyed the rest of their holiday in Cornwall. Rowena and Nigel Fletcher

“Very pleasant stay”
Reviewed 13 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Due to bad weather forecast, we decided to leave the tent at home. Instead we booked the Admiral cottage. That was a good decision. We had a wonderful time. The cottage has all you need for a week stay. We enjoyed it very much.
