The host Julie is very kind and welcoming. Meadowsweet is a very clean, modern, comfortable, well-equipped, and well-managed property. However – read the property description carefully because there is no wifi! Access to the property is extremely challenging along miles of very narrow, car-width lanes with high hedges on each side and lots of blind corners. I found this access to be terrifying after having met tractors, delivery vans, horses, hikers, and selfish drivers who refuse to back up into side areas intended for passing. Instead they just sit and stare at you, waiting for you to back up regardless of the distance to the passing area behind you. Not fun when there are also cars behind you!

We're so sorry to hear that you had some difficulties negotiating the country lanes in the area. The location is very rural and the lanes do need to be driven slowly and with care - especially at this time of year when the hedgerows are in full bloom. Usually locals are very friendly and patient in terms of pulling in and reversing - hopefully your experience was just down to a misunderstanding or maybe someone who didn't know where the nearest pull-in was, and future drivers and road users will be as courteous and helpful as we'd normally expect.

Ideal cottage holiday especially with your dog. Lovely country walks and scenery. Quite idyllic.

An ideal property and location for unwinding from the usual stresses, and with opportunities to explore local interests eg Eden Project, China Clay working, Heritage railways and harbours at Fowey and Charleston.

If my wife and I ever wish to come again to central Cornwall we would not hesitate to return to either Meadowsweet or Cowslip, both of which we have now used.

Meadowsweet is a wonderful, quiet, country property that will suit those looking for guaranteed isolation but still within easy walking distance of a pub and central to both the North and South Cornwall coasts. The cottage is well equipped, warm and comfortable. The welcome is lovely. We loved being able to walk from the door without needing to take the car out.
