A lovely few days at the Carriage House. Just one mile off a main road, so not long to journey down narrow lanes to get there but felt very remote and quiet. There is a farm next door and I presume dairy, as we would hear the cows in the morning and evening (I'm guessing at milking time?) but not otherwise. You can unload right by the door and then easy parking for 2 cars about 30 seconds walk away. Comfortable sofa and beds (although beds very low to floor) and well equipped throughout. Warm and cosy, although only a few logs left for first night and no kindling, firelighters or paper to get fire started - it was lucky we had gone prepared! Great location for easy access to Port Isaac, Padstow, Tintagel and Boscastle and not far from Wadebridge. Lovely area to explore.

We had a lovely week here, the weather was faultless from start to finish.... The cottage was really lovely and well equipped with everything you needed... The only thing we would say is that for us it was a little too isolated...
Mrs Merrick September 2021
Carriage house is a super cottage one of the best we have stayed at. The cottage was well set out and everything was clean and did not look 'tired' or neglected . everything was catered for having all the amenities needed in a lovely rural part of Cornwall complete with its own local herd of cows and country smells! Simply lovely. Situated in central position for good walks, beaches, pubs and other necessary amenities such as petrol stations! We are planning on returning it was such a lovely week and the cottage provided an excellent comfortable base to see and do all we had planned - Thank you and see you again soon.

While the property was acceptably clean it didn't appear to have had a deep clean. Lots of cobwebs, windows needed a good clean, ashes left in log burner. Nothing to harm our health but considering how we now book in later for cleaning , thought it would have been as pristine as the other classic cottages I've stayed in. Disappointed that there was no milk provided. Didn't expect the amazing welcome pack we had last time in Mousehole, ie welcome card, milk, tea, coffee, wine, Cornish fairings and saffron buns!! It's a bit in the sticks so had to make a long journey to the nearest shop to buy milk.

We're so sorry to hear that you felt the cleanliness could have been better, and wish that we'd known during your stay so that we could have rectified any areas you were unhappy with. It is a rural property so guests will have to drive to some facilities; we're so sorry that this wasn't quite what you were looking for. Tanya, Customer Support

Far from the madding crowd, but very close to many beaches, the Camel Trail etc. Excellent position for exploring.
Mrs Renouf September 2021
Lovely cottage by a working farm . We loved it very secluded but good location for Port Isaac Polzeath Tintagel and Bodmin Moor. Lots of history in the area. Good eating places around 2 miles away. We had a great week and would definitely return.
Mr Dixon August 2021
Fantastic little cottage. Spotless, well furnished, well equipped. Great location for all of the attractions of the North Cornwall coast and interior. We'll be back again.
Mrs Barry July 2021
Lovely stay. Cottage clean and in a good location to visit North Cornwall. Have already booked our stay for next year in the same cottage.
Mr Valentine June 2021
We thoroughly recommend The Carriage House. Accommodation cosy, very well equipped, and peaceful. Perfect location in the country side, but not too far to travel to coastal resorts, e.g. Polzeath, Port Isaac, Rock etc. We wish we could have stayed longer, but hope to return one day in the future. Ease of booking with Classic Cottages was good, and we were kept fully informed by email with details of accommodation and arrival and departure instructions etc.
Mrs Griffiths May 2021
The Carriage House is excellently located for the North Cornwall Coast with easy access to Port Isaac and many other surrounding attractions. The cottage itself is equipped to a high standard and is comfortable and cosy. It is true, the gentle lowing of cows is almost constant but did not disturb our sleep.
Mrs Holden May 2021
I lost my mother to Covid in November last year and needed a break away from everything and I couldn’t have chosen a better location. It was so peaceful all you could hear was birds and bees and the cows from the farm next door. I would definitely love to go back again. The whole experience was first class from the initial contact with a most helpful, charming young lady in your office (whose name I have sadly mislaid) and speaking to the housekeeper Lin who was extremely helpful as I hadn’t been on a self catering holiday for over 20 years . I have been looking at your cottages for next year and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend your company to family and friends. Thank you again.

We have passed your kind words on to Kerry in our Sales Team and we are sure Lin will also be so pleased to hear that she was able to help you during your stay. We look forward to welcoming you back next year, do get in touch if we can be of any assistance. Tressa, Customer Support

Mrs Beard April 2021
We loved this cottage, it was beautifully decorated and clean, and the surrounding grounds were spacious and pretty. It was a great area, close to the main road to get access up and down the county and to the beach, but also really peaceful.
Mrs Faulkner October 2020
Wonderful relaxing week in a gorgeous cottage in a lovely part of Cornwall. The cottage was spotlessly clean, quality furniture and equipment, comfy bed and very welcoming log burner. We will definitely return, thank you for a wonderful home chill out week.
Mr Organ September 2020
Lovely Cottage in a great setting
Mrs Monforte August 2020

Mr Gallagher September 2019
An enjoyable stay, generally quiet (except cows at night!) . All in all to be recommended.
Mrs White June 2019
Wonderful stay as usual. Never stay anywhere else. Had the pleasure of meeting Lin the housekeeper who certainly went above and well beyond the call of duty and inconvenience to herself considering we were a very last minute booking.Just warn her we are coming back !!But promise not to be late leaving next time, this time was unavoidable.
Dr Watkins May 2019
Lovely comfortable and clean cottage. We had a very nice holiday with 2 adults and children. Beds comfortable and made for a good nights sleep. Nice and close to varied activities and beaches. St Kew Inn also I’m walking distance and the food was great. Would definitely stay here again.
Miss Higgins May 2019
It was great having a washing machine and dish washer. No sign of the barbecue included in the description of what the property came with
Reply from Classic Cottages
Thanks so much for letting us know - the barbecue had been stored away in the shed as the weather was poor, we're so sorry that this caught us out. We'll ask the housekeeper to make sure that guests know where it is, or know to give her a call so she can help with any queries. Tanya, Customer Support
Mr Smy September 2018
Lovely clean and well equipped cottage. Wish we could have stayed longer. Fab location ( peaceful )
Mrs Scott July 2017
Absolutely everything needed for a relaxing holiday was provided for. Standard of furnishing and equipment was first class. A very warm welcome and information provided to help holiday makers stay that bit easier was first class. Never have I slept so perfectly in my life. Loved the book about different walks. We did the pretty coastal path walk which really did live up to its description. This was a first for us as a couple; renting a cottage in the countryside in Britain but will definitely not be our last. A most relaxed way to holiday and saw so much of our beautiful countryside and coastline.
Mr Spencer May 2017

Mr Carlile August 2015
The Carriagehouse is truly lovely and immaculate throughout. We catered for ourselves several times and the equipment provided was excellent! The owners John and Sally were exceptionally welcoming! Future customers should definitely sample the St Kew Inn pub. Fabulous food and service.

Mr May September 2013
This cottage is perfect for couples or a small family with every home comfort provided for. Cleanliness was second to none. Owners friendly but not intrusive. We will certainly be booking again for next year.
