“Lovely cottage, lovely hosts and a lovely location.What more can you say.”
— Chris, 14 October 2022
“A very friendly welcome. The cottage was beautiful with nice views of the rolling countryside. The wood burning stove was excellent. Walking distance to tamar lakes. The upper tamar lake is a nice 5k run or walk. The cafe does an excellent breakfast with a relaxed atmosphere and dog friendly. A great location for touring north Cornwall and Devon.”

“A great place to stay with a warm welcome from the owners Liz, Alan and Alfie ( their dog)An ideal location to explore north Cornwall and north Devon being located near Bude on the Atlantic Coast. good local walking around the Tamar Lakes, ideal for your dogs.Take advantage of the information in the welcome book as the owners recommended several restaurants and places to visit which we found excellent and dog friendly. You are given a welcome basket with a cream tea treat, I was a bit cheeky and asked if they could supply a gluten free scone, Liz went the extra mile and supplied it! As a celiac I found Cornwall really good for cream teas and pasties, not forgetting the fish and chips. The local chippy in the nearby village you pass through does a good gluten free menu, you can place your order via the phone and collect at the time they give you, the details are in the welcome pack.Overall the best dog friendly place we have stayed and would defiantly visit again, thank you Liz and Alan.Our Martha enjoyed her roomies around the garden with Alfie”

The location of the cottage was very good for walks with the tamar lakes on the doorstep. There was a local village a few miles away with 2 excellent pubs and fish and chip shop and Bude was only 5 miles away. I would recommend this cottage for a relaxing holiday.”
