Reviews for Bos Lowen

Fantastic value for money

“Fantastic value for money and after a long drive down from Cheshire, what a special location.   Cannot begin to describe how peaceful the place is but only 5 minutes from the Newquay beaches.   The owners and support beforehand was excellent so please, don’t hesitate to visit.  You won’t regret it.” – Jerry, Cheshire

A really peaceful getaway

“The studio cottages are just fabulous.  I’d call them bijou but with all mod cons and we were lay in bed with the side door open and gorgeous views across the pond and lush green land.   It was a really peaceful getaway and we’ve booked again for next year” – Si and Collette, Manchester

Reviews for Clearbrook Barn

We love this place

“We love this place and stay every time we visit relatives in Tavistock.  The Barn is very comfortable and the location is so full of animal activity and green lush surroundings that you really get a sense of being somewhere very different and special.  Totally recommend”   Steve & Mary, Lincoln

Reviews for Colan Barton

We loved it.

“Wow, stunning property and loved having the family in different property units and around the pool every day.  We hardly left the site.   It was lovely to have an Aga and the kitchen was large and full of life with so many friends and family.  We loved it.” – Kate, Sussex

A real home from home

“We had a wonderful week, a real home from home.  Enjoyed the peace, the wildlife and during one evening witnessed rabbits, badgers, herons, robins, passing horses” – Mark and Nancy, Bristol

“I like it here”

– Evan, aged 7

This is our favourite

“this was a real treat. big old family house being let by family on their own website and what a property. 300 years old and full of quirky character. main house sleeps 10 or 11 and then they have other adjacent properties. main house has amazing granite floors which owner told us was an original feature so think of all those feet and all those years. property is set in its own 10 acres of fields, gardens and outside swimming pool. bit cold for us to swim in february but we’ve booked again for july when the pool will be well used. we’ve visited loads of large houses in europe and happy to say this is our favourite and for a big group it’s a great price” – Trip Advisor, Charlie Jones1966

Colan Barton is a must!

“The property looks stunning on the website but in real life it is even better.  Everything is finished to the highest spec.  Newquay is great, but you could just stay at Colan Barton and not venture out and have the perfect break. The pool was fabulous, just what us girls needed on the hot summers weekend we were there. You have lots of great walks around the surrounding area. The Kitchen is fab, we managed to sit around the table for dinner, which was great considering there were 18 of us!  We can’t wait to go back and take our partners with us, as we had great fun! It was a brilliant base for the beach and nightlife.  Our stay at Colan Barton was one I will never forget and we can’t wait to hopefully re-visit.  I would say Colan Barton is a must!” – Trip Advisor, BonnieD08

An absolute gem

“We have recently returned from a week at Colan Barton – cannot understand why there are not more reviews on this place. It is an absolute gem and if you are thinking of booking it please do not hesitate. It is an old property but has everything you will possibly need. The kitchen is huge with a lovely big Aga. 5 bedrooms all lovely and very comfy. The pool area is fantastic. Huge pool in lovely grounds with a summer house that again has all you could need. The acres of land are wonderful for children (and adults) and everything was spotlessly clean. We also had the 2 studio cottages and they are also great but you can only use all the land etc if you have the main house as we did. Didn’t take the option of Little barton but although all the properties are together they are extremely private.

Only a 5 minute drive from Newquay if you want to go out. We aged from 8 weeks to 60s and everyone fell in love with it. Would not hesitate to recommend to anyone and would definately go back. Stayed July 2012, travelled with family”  –  Trip Advisor, Choggy32

An authentic Cornish atmosphere

“My daughter held her wedding reception at Colan and it handled 120 people in a marquee in the grounds with absolutely no problems at all. We stayed for a week in the whole property and it was outstanding. We took the whole property meaning that feeding 18 round the farmhouse table or poolside bbq was easy. An authentic Cornish atmosphere made it extra special and Perfect for family reunions and group gatherings – we would go back again in a flash” – Trip Advisor, CJMFife

Breath taking!

The house took our breath away. Amazing location and the facilities – with games…

Reviews for Lanherne Farmhouse

Full of character

Message from the Owners – “We’ve owned this property for many years but have decided to release it as a holiday let during 2013.   It’s full of character and can sleep 8 comfortably and more if required.   Downstairs we’ve put in underfloor heating and outside there is a cabin which our kids often used as an escape from the adults.   We’ve really enjoyed letting out another of our properties during 2012 and intend making sure each guest in Lanherne has a wonderful stay and wants to come back” – Monica and Dieter, Ladock, Cornwall

Reviews for Little Barton

Wonderful property

“I can’t say how glad I am to have found this wonderful property.  You must be very proud of this special location” – Nicola, Leicester

Everything you could wish for

“We have just spent a week at Little Barton, it has everything you could wish for, very clean, in a beautiful spot away from all the hustle and bustle of life, just what we both needed. Plenty of restaurants and pubs close by and a large supermarket just down the road for those who want to self cater.  Beds very comfortable with good linen and towels. The owners are around if you have any problems, we had none! Will be going back again in near future. Stayed February 2012, travelled as a couple” –  Trip Advisor, Nicholadorset

Reviews for Miranda Cottage

What a great place to visit

“We travelled from Denmark and cannot recommend enough.   What a great place to visit Cornwall and the owners/agents were great in the process.  Thanks so much and good luck with Miranda – she deserves lots of visitors!!” – Louie, Esbjerg

A real treat

“Really pleased with Miranda Cottage.   St Martin is a charming, small village about 10 minutes from Helston.  Not many facilities but very peaceful.  The house itself is charming and the fittings, furniture are elegant and well considered.   We loved congregating in the warm kitchen around the Aga and just enjoying every moment of this lovely location.  It was a real holiday.  A real treat” – Martin, Watford

Cosy and welcoming

“We enjoyed this house very much.   The location is very peaceful and a great base for exploring West Cornwall.  The rooms were lovely, the beds extremely comfortable and lots of wardrobe space, despite it being a reasonably spacious property, it felt very cosy and welcoming each evening we got home.  Thank you for allowing us to have a wonderful holiday” – Joyce, London

Reviews for Nethertack

A fantastic property

“Nethertack is a fantastic property – spacious, very well appointed, great location – and we had a very enjoyable stay there. The weather was a bit mixed but there’s plenty to do and see within easy striking distance of Moniaive and lots of information available in the house. The housekeeper (Michael) is a bit of a gem. He settled us in, introduced us to the landlord at the pub and was a mine of information about the area. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it as a place to stay, the only caveat being that you need to value peace and tranquility – on one day I think we saw 4 other cars on a 40 mile drive!” – Graham, Wakefield

Reviews for Old Stables

A dream getaway

“A dream getaway, so happy to stay in the cottage it was a strain to go sightseeing!!! Only one problem – when to come back!” – Robert and Kay from Derbyshire

Reviews for Pennti

Just gorgeous

“We had a lovely break at Pennti cottage. It was very difficult to tear ourselves away & we really do hope to visit again one day. It was very comfortable & the views were just gorgeous. Owners also very helpful & friendly without being at all intrusive. All in all, a great place to relax in a very central location. We’d love to have been able to stay longer.” – Sarah, Maidenhead

A fantastic relaxing stay

“We had a fantastic relaxing stay at Pennti.  It’s very cosy, comfortable and all our needs were met.   We liked the log burner, storage heaters, bird feeders, enormous comfy bed, excellent facilities and beautiful location.   We’d love to come again and will be recommending to friends and family” – Helen, Andrew & Family

Comfortable and cosy

“Comfortable and cosy with lovely, peaceful views (even during our morning tea in bed).  Owners very welcoming” – Henry, Warwick

Loved the views

Lovely stay and very comfortable.  Really loved the views from the bed and the and sounds were so peaceful.  Really enjoyed it.

A peaceful break

We had a lovely week staying at Pennti, it was one of the best thought out properties by ways of facilities and organisation.  I’ve stayed at many different locations but Pennti really concentrated on attention to detail with things like torches hanging up and clear instruction in the hallway.  I would definitely like to return in the future and would strongly recommend to all my friends and family wanting a peaceful break in Cornwall.  There is so much to do in the area and the weather shouldn’t put anyone off as you’ve always got the cosy wood burner to light of an evening.

The family were lovely and friendly to us; our daughter enjoyed meeting the pigs and ducks etc

Reviews for The Glebe Barn

The perfect holiday

“Thank you for the perfect holiday.  Please send our warmest regards to owners of The Barn and the dog-sitter.  Everyone was so friendly.  We have shown lots of friends pictures of The Barn and our holiday in general.   We had lots of fun photographing and filming and hope to revisit.” – Zaki and family, Berlin

A real gem

“Great property, wonderful location and well equipped.   A very cool interior design was a great contrast with the oldy worldy rural location.  A real gem” – Michael & Sam, Harrow
