Good location for exploring that area of Cornwall.


This is a beautiful cottage, perfect for those who just want to switch off and enjoy the countryside and peace and quiet. At the same time it also central to many beautiful places you can visit if you wish. Lovely walks without needing to go in the car at all, even heard owls at night! We will definitely be back.


We spent a week at Snuggledown for our honeymoon and loved it. A bottle of wine & lovely biscuits were waiting for us, however once Verna ( the owner) knew we were newleyweds she popped in with another bottle of Prosecco!!! Snuggledown is very appropriately named !! Incredibly peaceful, very clean, beautiful views over the valley and the bed was so comfortable we have returned home and ordered a new mattress!!! Thank you Verna for making our honeymoon memorable in many ways. Looking to book with family for next year. We thoroughly recommend Snuggledown ?? xx


I can highly recommend this cottage, it is very comfy, spacious but cosy at the same time. It is perfectly located for a variety of attractions and is also near to the coast. What more could you want.


Cottage is comfortable and the owner (Verna) is very friendly. The garden is well kept & could be shared with customers of the owner’s larger cottage behind Snuggledown. Although, areas are enclosed from the fields, there is a gate to the owners’ that is mainly open that dogs can get into the lane/roads. Verna offered to close it when our dog escaped but all visitors (gardeners etc) leave it open: it was only closed once our stay so we used a long line lead to keep our dog safe.

The car parking is in the garden for both rental properties.

We hadn’t fully understood that the route to the cottage would be such a difficult drive along high hedgerow, one car width roads. Both sides of our car was subjected to grazing. Verna did tell us about a ‘slightly’ wider road in & out to the cottage on arrival. The isolation of the cottage has advantages of peacefulness but DO take main provisions for arrival as although the cottage had tea, coffee, biscuits & bottle of wine…We had overlooked milk so had to head back through the tight lane/road to find a shop in Blazey. Not much there but the garage had milk! Ask Verna for secateurs if you take the gate through to the woods as it’s very overgrown & difficult to access the wonderful aqua duct - woods via this stretch. We had great weather so managed to dry washing on the outside line but with only one bottom bed sheet & one set of towels supplied, it could be difficult to launder & be in use in one day, in poor weather. However, I’m sure Verna , who lives in the same grounds as Snuggledown, would be able to give you further bedding if you ask. There is a brush & hoover supplied but nothing to clean/wash the floor. If you take a dog, you’ll have to ensure paws are washed & dried outside. There is an odd/random cream sofa placed in the corner of the room where the photos show the dining table. We assume the room furniture has been updated as the grey sofa & chair are not shown in the photos. Wardrobe space is in the door entrance area opposite the bathroom: no hanging space in the bedroom. We enjoyed our week at the cottage but the drive to & from it to explore the area was off- putting. Highly recommend the woodland walk by the aqua duct: turn left from snuggledown and follow the road to the car park and walk left or access via the overgrown lane at the side of the cottage via a gate.


If you are precious about your car, and it is quite large, the mile long drive down to the cottage is exceedingly narrow and rubbed down both sides of our car. It didn’t damage it but sounded like might.


Verna was a fabulous host - very kind and warm and welcoming. The house was fabulous and had everything we needed and more!! Brilliant location - couldn't have been a more perfect place to stay!!


We loved our time at Snuggledown. Verna was lovely and welcoming. It was perfect for us. Only one suggestion in that a couple of sun loungers would have been a lot more comfortable for sitting out in the courtyard. After a while the plastic chairs were just too uncomfortable.


A very quiet peaceful rural location, but accessible to many interesting Cornish towns and places of interest. A cosy and comfortable place to stay.


We had an excellent week at Snuggledown, with a warm welcome from Verna. The cottage is very conveniently located for visiting Fowey, the Eden Project, Lanhydrock etc. So many great walks in the area, including the coastal path and through the woods to the Luxulyan Valley - an ideal location for walkers.


This is the perfect cottage in which to unwind and be totally comfortable, away from the crowds, but near our favourite places if we wanted to go beyond local walks. It is a really special place, in a beautiful, unspoilt and little known area. Verna is an exceptional owner, with nothing too much trouble, and we hope to return before too long.


A lovely cottage in super quiet peaceful surroundings. Great for local walks. Very well furnished and adapted. Light and airy ambience. Great to sit outside in garden. Owner very helpful.


A great 'away from it all' location, peaceful and relaxing, yet not far from lovely beaches and small towns.


This is a delightful cottage which is comfortable to stay in and it is perfectly situated for all a holidaymaker's needs.


We had a lovely week in this comfortable, well equipped cottage. It was great to come back to after a day out and sit and enjoy the view.


Plenty of great walks with no driving involved.


Very well presented and comfortable. A very accommodating and helpful lady Mrs Roberts.


I would highly recommend this property to any wishing for a relaxed and comfortable holiday in Cornwall. Brilliantly situated to visit a whole host of attractions. In a word wonderful


Snuggledown is a great place to get away from it all and enjoy peace and quiet, with the beautiful Vuxulyan on your doorstep and lovely beaches near by you couldn't ask for more


A very cosy cottage in a most fabulous location if you like walking! A really lovely owner too.


A big thank you to Verna and Kay for a lovely peaceful break in your beautiful cottage. The cream tea on arrival was yummy and the homemade jam just right Perfect location for visiting Fowey (The Ship Inn excellent food and friendly atmosphere) The Eden project Lost gardens of Heligan Charlestown and Mevagissey The Luxulyan Valley walk from the cottage is lovely and when you find the 100ft viaduct awesome Frans kitchen ( small bakery in Lostwithiel) has the best pasties ever Will definitely be coming back


Sniggledown is a wonderful holiday home that has the feel of a cottage yet the natural light and space of a modern apartment. Those enjoying woodland walks are in for a real treat as you can set off from the cottage without jumping into the car. In the spring, the blankets of bluebells are truly stunning. The only interruption at Snuggledown is from a small herd of very nosey bullocks who line up at the garden fence waiting to be entertained.


A superb holiday cottage in a lovely setting, with lovely , helpful owners .


The owner and her daughter are the loveliest of people and made myself and my dogs very welcome.

The most exquisite home baked scones, with home made blackcurrant preserve awaited , along with beautiful flowers everywhere.

Area convenient for so many places , whether moors or beaches and some lovely ancient towns are nearby.

I cannot rate Snugledown and the owners highly enough.

It's fantastic to hear how much you enjoyed your time at Snuggledown. It's such a beautiful tucked away spot, and the scones sound pretty good too....! Tanya, Customer Support


Superb cottage in a picturesque tranquil location. Verna is a very welcoming owner who is keen to help. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay as did our three dogs! Would recommend to anyone looking for somewhere comfortable and quiet to stay, with easy access to woodland walks and both North and South coasts.


Snuggledown is a lovely property peaceful and quiet with wildlife to watch every day. Walks in the wood from property or fields Jake wirehaired dacshound really enjoyed himself. Owner Verna was brilliant nothing too much trouble, came round during storm to make sure we were ok. Would thoroughly recommend this property.every facility


A warm welcome from the house owner who ensures you have everything you need.


We all had a fantastic stay, great location, peaceful with plenty of walks right from the back garden, the owners son was extremely accommodating from the moment we arrived (11.45pm!!) plenty of space. Had a wonderful holiday thank you so much. Charlotte, Andy and Oscar Simpson


The meadow in front of the house and the garden are free to use and can be used, for example, for outdoor yoga


A gorgeous little cottage, perfect for couples. Very helpful and friendly owners. Stunning countryside views and a very peaceful setting, a perfect get-away-from-it-all summer break. Great area for walking and close to some lovely beaches and restaurants. Would definitely stay there again.


A very attractive and comfortable cottage with a lovely outlook, in an area with convenient access to the coast by car.


Beautiful conversion. Lovely view and lots of light in winter through the windows.


An absolute home from home ! Very light , airy and warm . Nicely furnished .Loved it ! Can recommend .


Great location and good for our dog walking from the door through the woods and a dog friendly beach nearby. Lovely cottage and would go back again.


This is a very well located, charming cottage, where the owner is very helpful, friendly and has thought of everything you would need.


Less than one mile from the main road, an ideal location for touring, particularly close to the Eden Project. Pleasantly decorated and laid out, along with a welcoming, helpful and friendly nearby owner.


Comfortable cottage, very tranquil but well placed for many places of interest - would highly recommend. Really lovely Owner!


A perfect cottage to explore the south and the north of cornwall


Very friendly welcome and superb cream tea waiting for us on arrival. Very dog friendly with lovely walks.


This is a really first class place to stay, particularly if you like walking.


Beautiful location surrounded by fields and woods in the Luxulyan Valley. Very handy for The Eden Project and The Lost Gardens of Heligan.


A wonderful welcome to Snuggledown with a cream tea set out for us! The cottage is so peaceful with beautiful views!


Perfect for a quiet holiday with plenty of dog walking directly from the Snuggledown.


Property exceeded expectations. Lovely views from the huge windows and peaceful setting. We enjoyed the beautiful Luxulyan Valley walks from the door and many more just a short drive away. Warm and friendly welcome from the owners. Have already recommended this property to friends and family!


If you want to to recharge your batteries this is the place to go, beautiful cottage well equipped location perfect for walking and nature. Owner lovely


An idyllic place to spend a holiday, close to all Cornwall offers with special areas like the woodland walks and stream on your doorstep Relaxing and enjoyable with a lovely host Verna.


The cottage is in a lovely, tranquil location with direct access to the woods and Luxulyan valley. The coast is a short drive away and there are also many other sites within easy reach - overall its a great base. The cottage was clean, very well equipped and had everything we needed for our stay, which we thoroughly enjoyed.


Snuggledown is a lovey well maintained property situated in a picturesque, tranquil location. A great place to get away from it all and recharge your batteries yet still within easy access of many of Cornwall's attractions.


A well presented property in an ideal location for dog owners like us.


Beautiful position. Lots of walks right on your doorstep in the wood and then into the Luxulyan valley. We were made to feel very welcome and had no problems at all. Would love to go again.


Walking in the private woodland was a real bonus. Also watching the different birds feeding right outside the expansive windows was fantastic.


This cottage offered us peace and quiet for us to relax in wonderful countryside. We have had a lovely holiday and re-booked for another week later in the year.


Will definitley be visiting again


This cottage is perfect for a peaceful getaway, but you will certainly not be cut off from all the fun things to do as well. I highly recommend it.


A perfect cottage in a perfect location. I will happily recommend it to all my friends and would love to stay here again.


We do a lot of walking holidays and this is one of the best cottages we have stayed in for space, location , equipment. We would definitely book again. The lady who owns it is also very nice, welcoming and approachable.


This was our sixth visit to Snuggledown. We love the area and the peace and quiet. The owners are always very welcoming and helpful. We will be back!


We had a wonderful holiday - we have been to Trethevey twice before, both times to the big cottage,with family, this time we were on our own with the dogs. Snuggledown is an extremely comfortable cottage with a wonderfully peaceful, almost serene atmosphere, just perfect to unwind and re-charge your batteries. We had some awful weather, very windy with rain coming down in sheets, but the cottage stayed warm and we felt very cosy and relaxed. Thanks to Verna and Kay for making this little slice of heaven available to us.


Would definitely visit again, owners are lovely and brilliant location for a dog as woodland walks right on doorstep and garden is lovely too.


Excellent location for any area in the county and for Plymouth, or if it is a quiet time for relaxation you could not pick a better spot with beautiful views and surroundings.


A lovely cottage, very comfortable and wonderfully located near the Luxulyan valley. A very quite location - well away from crowds but not too far to drive to places of interest of which there are many e.g. Fowey, Lanhydrock, Lost Gardens etc. Owner very helpful indeed. Local pub very friendly and serves good pub food. We had a super stay. Many thanks!


Good central location for exploring Cornwall. The cottage is light and airy with great views of the countryside beyond the garden. Owner is welcoming and very helpful. Single track road for about a mile to the cottage, but don't be put off - the peace and tranquility are worth it.


Snuggledown is great for peace and quiet, yet, although tucked away, it is close enough to all the numerous attractions the area has to offer. I will definately recommend it to others.


A lovely place to relax in gorgeous surroundings!


Dont book this cottage unless you like peace and quiet. Bring at least one good book and then sit back and relax.


This cottage met all our expectations. We could hardly imagine there were any cottages as nice as this one. The owner family are very pleasant people.


Take lots of books and just enjoy the peace and quiet.


Howard and Verna were the most helpful of owners. Cream tea greeted us on arrival. Would definately recommend this property.


So peaceful


Lovely accommodation. Friendly and helpful owners. Quiet and restful location.


Excellent stay - really friendly and helpful owners and easy access to all the places we wanted to visit
