We enjoyed our stay very much. Great that the House keeper dropped by to check on us too. The location and cottage match our need and exceptions perfectly. Thank you from us all.

The cottage is in a good location but is beginning to look rather tired . The gate to the property opens directly onto a very busy road , parking is not possible, the road is busy with farm machinery , buses etc and it wld not be safe to leave a car . Fortunately the local pub allowed us to park there . The cottage has a garden but this is rather overgrown , the garden furniture disappeared halfway through our holiday .

Brilliant accommodation , really pleased with everything, the house keeper was very helpful and welcoming , couldn't wish for better or more. Thank you John Low.

Absolutely fantastic stay, everything was so clean and we were made to feel like nothing was too much trouble, can’t wait to book another holiday through classic cottages!

Filkins Cottage is the perfect retreat away: full of charm, well equipped and quiet, with close access to the wonderful coastline and countryside. The closest sea point is the beautiful Port Quinn, just 10 mins drive away and the most wonderful pub/restaurant St Kew Inn only 4 mins away - a blissful week in all. Thank you Filkins!

It's a 300 year old cottage with lots of character.

Great location for exploring North Cornwall. Padstow, Rock, Port Isaac, Polzeath, Tintagel and Boscastle (to name a few) are all within half an hour’s drive of this property.

Excellent local pub a few hundred yards down the road serving good traditional pub food.

The garden was not very well kept, the next door neighbour did pop in and cut the hedge leading to the front door on tues as he was cutting his but everything else was over grow and very much unloved, if it were my garden I would feel embarrassed as I did when people walked past.

Thank you for your review which we've shared with the owner. We're sorry that the garden could have had a little more attention, thanks so much for letting us know. Classic Cottages

Filkins has all the wonderful charm of a cosy cottage, ticks every box and having a utility room with a washer/dryer was a total bonus after days at the beach to get everything clean and dry. Loved the little hidden garden around the back, also a prefect location (quiet & peaceful) but quick to get to the best places (Pt Isaac, Rock, Polzeath, Padstow.)

Filkins cottage is a lovely Cornish cottage. Beds are very comfortable and the little touches of fresh flowers, a bottle of wine, milk, tea and coffee were very welcoming. This is a cottage I wouldn't hesitate to book again.

The Filkins Cottage is a cute little, old house. A grat place to explore beautiful places around. For three persons perfect....the kitchen is little.

Very Nice and cosy cottage with a lovely kitchen and Very English bedrooms. We enjoyed our stay

Beautiful quaint cottage in a perfect location for travelling around Cornwall. Would definitely recommend and would stay again.

Great Cornish cottage for adults, not for children?

Thanks for your review of Filkins Cottage. This 17th Century Grade II Listed cottage is full of character and retains many original features which we've included in the description (steep cottage stairs and a typical cobbled cottage garden) which we appreciate won't be suitable for everyone. If you're looking for something a little more modern please do get in touch with our Booking Office team who'd be delighted to help you find something to suit your requirements in the future.

A delightful cottage, tastefully decorated and well appointed. We all felt very much at home and the location is perfect for exploring Cornwall.

Filkins cottage is full of Cornish charm!

Lovely open fireplace - beautiful kitchen and very quiet and tastefully decorated bedrooms. This was a nlissfully relaxing trip and considering we booked very last minute, the service we revived from Classice Cottages was excellent.

The house itself has great access to the main highway from which you can discover the rest of what cornwall has to offer. A real bonus for us was the proximity to the St Kew Inn pub.

We had a lovely time and would highly recommend it.

A perfect cottage for exploring this part of Cornwall and using as a base for walking the South West Coast Path.

Warm, comfortable and well equipped cottage. Fantastic location for visiting nearby Padstow, Bude, Tintagel orthr coast in general. Great pub just a minute walk down road.

Lovely cosy cottage, ideally placed for touring Northern Cornwal.

I couldn't have chosen a more cosy english country cottage, it so made my holiday. I had arranged a little break for my son for his birthday, and I wanted it to be special and it definitely was. Filkins Cottage will forever be in our memories as a wonderfully cosy cottage to come home to during our Autumn holiday in North Cornwall. I couldn't have expected a warmer welcome, thank you.

Comfortable cottage. Suited our needs perfectly. Hope to return next year.

Lovely cosy cottage, great amenities, wonderful stay.

A really lovely little place to stay, close to all the tourist attractions but far enough off the beaten track to remain away from the crowds.

This cute as a button cottage is perfect for exploring North Cornwall and would suit either families or adults.

We had a great week at Filkins Cottage. It is full of character and feels like a 'home from home' Both of the bedrooms are beautifully furnished and decorated, creating a cosy and relaxing sleeping environment. It is situated in a quiet lane with the occasional tractor, but all you can hear mostly is the birds chirping away.

cosy, traditional old cottage in excellent location for exploring North Cornwall

Lovely grade II cottage ideal location for exploring the cornish coastline and surrounding areas.

Great little cottage. Ideal for two couple's. bit of a tardis,
