We had a wonderful time in the lovely house and garden. The owners are very nice and hospitable. There are many things to do in the region for families - walking, swimming, sightseeing, bodyboarding in the north,... we would love to come back.

June 2019

Beautiful location, perfect for our stay. Very well equipped property and comfortable, a delicious cake was awaiting our arrival. There is nothing negative to say about Freds house and the location, we have stayed in quite few properties, and I can honestly says this has been the best so far!

April 2019

Excellent property, spotless and well equipped and in great private location. Reassuring to have owner in quite close proximity.

October 2018

The personal touch on arrival was so lovely, the home baked cake and milk in the fridge and fresh flowers. The privacy was perfect.

September 2018

Everything about our Fred's House experience was positive. One week was not enough and it was a wrench to leave Talland, with its beautiful bay.

August 2018

Sarah, the owner, gave us a very warm and friendly welcome- with tea and handmade cornish cake. We didn't miss anything during our holiday and had a super holiday!

A lovely quiet cottage in an excellent location, walking distance to 2 beaches and lovely cliff top walks.

This is without doubt the best cottage we have booked with you so far Everything we needed was there including seats etc for the garden which by the way was a wonderful and peaceful place to relax in

June 2018

Fred’s House is homely and comfortable. The garden is wonderful and safe for kids. Ten minutes walk and you’re on the beach at Talland Bay, right next to a great cafe. We had a wonderful holiday and will definitely be back.

May 2018

Fred's House is idyllic, beautifully presented, well equipped, spotlessly clean yet still having a lovely, homely relaxing feel, wonderful gardens and Summerhouse too. Welcomed on arrival by sunny daffodils in the Dining Room, a delicious home-made cake, tea tray set out and fresh milk in the fridge, what a wonderful surprise and welcome. We were delighted that Sarah came over personally to welcome us, and make sure we had settled in and to let her know if there was anything we needed during our stay. It was a wonderful break, wish it could have been longer. Can thoroughly recommend Fred's House, a real home from home only better!

December 2017

Fred's house is in a fabulous location and is a warm cosy cottage with home from home feel. We stayed at Fred's house over Christmas and the house was very festive and we were greeted with tea and home made biscuits, and there was even a Christmas present for us to enjoy. We were made very welcome by Sara our lovely host. I would highly recommend Fred's house and look forward to our return visit.

Talland Bay is a revelation; a peaceful and very beautiful corner of the south coast with fabulous coastal walks in both directions. The cottage is secluded but not isolated, the garden is delightful and Sarah made us feel most welcome. I would love to return, we had a very happy and restful time. thank you.

June 2017

Fred's House is a beautiful well equipped cottage with a lovely spacious, pretty, private garden which is important to us and our dog. The location is ideal and only a 5 minute walk down to Talland Bay. The hosts Sarah and David were welcoming, kind and interesting people who left us to our own devices, but were available for help, info or just a chat if required.

It's a real home from home and spotlessly clean. There is everything you could possibly need. The area is beautiful with good walks, beaches, dog friendly places to eat. What more could you want! It was our second visit and we hope to be back again in the future.
