“Marvellous location & property - faultless”
Reviewed 13 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Everything you would want from a luxury holiday cottage and more. It's more the use of someones home that a holiday cottage booking with lots of luxurious touches. Stunning views across the river if you just chill out or a great place to visit anywhere in Cornwall, Malpas near Truro being pretty central. Thank you Judy for the use of the cottage, we will return.

“The perfect holiday cottage”
Reviewed 29 December 2014 for a stay in December 2014

Christmas away from home with a six year old is always a challenge - Saint Claire's owner Judy went out of her way to ensure that the cottage felt both cosy and festive for our stay. The attention to detail and finishing touches within the property make it feel like a home from home. It has everything you need - and with a sprinkling of luxury it makes you feel that you are being spoilt too. Of course the view of the river from the terrace is the icing on the cake - and what a wonderfully sheltered sun trap it is too. We are already missing Saint Claire's and lovely Malpas -what we consider to be the perfect location to visit the whole of Cornwall. Thank you so much for our stay!

“Immaculate cottage in stunning location”
Reviewed 21 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Overlooking the stunning views of the Fal Estuary, yet also just a stone's throw from Truro, this cottage is perfectly placed. Very well equipped, with modern high standard fittings, all the basic requirements such as washing-up liquid, tea and coffee etc are provided.
If you do not feel like taking the car, just walk along the Creek and soak up the sounds and views to St Clement and take a coffee or lunch at the Old Vicarage.

“Excellent”
Reviewed 20 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Another fab week at the cottage, we were there in 2010 and we love the new wet room, all the little touches like Molton Brown soaps are lovely. We loved sitting on the patio out the front watching the boats on the river.The location is ideal for visiting all the beaches and gardens, we particularly enjoyed getting the boat to St Mawes and Falmouth from over the road, a day of no driving always good. We will be back.
