Mrs Becker October 2017
Loved the hot tub and all of the animals. Our children loved running outside to see them every morning and helping to feed them. Very friendly owners too! House was well equipped and extremely clean, the cream tea on arrival was wonderful. We will be booking again next year! We had a wonderful holiday and our 5 year old son cried when we left as he was going to miss the alpacas!
Mrs Boxwell September 2017
Enjoyed a very happy week, great venue to explore Cornwall, The Hot tub was a lovely treat and greatly used The accommodation was homely, warm and had all the equipment needed Beautiful cream tea to enjoy on arrival Ensuite bathroom to double bedroom was a bonus to have plus the wet room.
Miss Mersh August 2017
The whole family had a fantastic time here. The owners and there adorable animals especially the dog, she went down a treat with my son and all of us. We rented a boat on the helford river that was a lovely day out its a must. I would say st Ives is very busy and over rated. We will be returning very soon thank you for a wonderful holiday and being so brilliant Caroline.
Mrs Thurston August 2017
Owners were really welcoming as were the animals! Cream tea exceptional. We loved the property and facilities. Children enjoyed swimming in the pool and warming up in the hot tub. Helped out feeding the Alpacas and chickens. Played with Hazy the dog. Would definitely like to return and would recommend the property to others.
Ms Hailes August 2017
The animals here are the real hit! Hazey, the alpacas, cat and chickens make this such a family friendly holiday. The Alpaca Walk is fondly remembered by all. Caroline was very accommodating and helpful with directions and local information. I appreciated the location; we did both Eden and Kynance Cove with ease. My daughter uses a wheelchair and found the property wholly accessible. The wet room worked really well. Pool enjoyed by children (too cold for me!) and hot tub loved by all, especially under the stars, late in the evening.
Mrs Campbell July 2017
Lovely property centrally located for many attractions/places. Property is very comfortable with everything you would need. The pool and the hot-tub is a real bonus. The animals also made the holiday for us.

Mr Spence September 2016
would recommend Downalong to everyone! Its very spacious inside but has a lovely homely feel, and to spend time in the hot tub under the stars is truly amazing! I am missing it already! Our daily visits from Hazy and Biscuit were enjoyable also. Owners are friendly and very helpful. Would love to go back some time
Mr Woodroffe September 2016
Excellent holiday home in the countryside, there is plenty of walks and a small village nearby. The cottage itself has a high standard of facilities including a hot tub and swimming pool. There is a selection of friendly animals on the site including three alpacas and a dog, all in all a fun friendly place to relax.
Mrs Cuddy August 2016
Absolutely beautiful cottage were you are made to feel so welcome and asked to treat it as if it were your own home. Lovely pool and hot tub.
Mrs Cann March 2016
The location of the cottage is excellent with lots to do around (walks, cycling, beaches,museums, beautiful coastal towns..). Hazy the dog was a real hit with the children and the hot tub was a real treat! The owners were very friendly and accommodating - nothing was too much trouble. Overall, we had a lovely time and we're sure to go back there again!
Mrs Bowden August 2015
We have recently returned from a weeks holiday at Downalong. The bungalow was very comfortable, the hot tub perfect after a day at the beach and the pool great fun for the kids. Hazy, the dog, was an additional bonus for our children who are still talking about her!
Ms Maas May 2015

Mrs Marshall August 2014
Everything about the property and location was fantastic! Ideal cottage for our family, lots of space for our children to play. The children also loved the owner's dog, Hazy and were sad to leave her behind. We loved staying at Downalong and will be back next year.
Mrs Duncan July 2014
Good family accommodation, in a great location.
Mrs Moore June 2014
We had a fabulous time at Downalong. It was clean and comfortable with everything we needed. The owners were friendly and helpful with suggesting places to visit.. Hazy the dog was a firm favourite with our children. The hot tub was the perfect tonic at the end of a busy day, and the pool was a great bonus too. All in all I would highly recommend a visit. Well worth the 6 1/2 hour car journey!! :)
Miss Brown April 2014
Really lovely. Well worth a visit!
Mrs McManus April 2014
Lovely property in a peaceful location with plenty of space for children to play. Convenient location for all our favourite areas. We would love to return.
Mrs Penn March 2014
Wonderful decor, peaceful location and great amenities. Good hosts, they greeted us when we arrived and they were around when we needed anything. Thank you.
Mr James September 2013
The accommodation was excellent for our family and the location seems well placed, as whenever we went off for the day everywhere seemed to be within about 20 minutes drive. The space and quality of accommodation was lovely, with two small children. Loved the jacuzzi, it allowed some wind down time at the end of the day after the kids were in bed. The owners were very helpful and answered any queries we had very quickly they were also very nice and welcoming, which for us is very important especially with two children. All in all would happily return and happily recommend to our friends.
Mrs Chedgy August 2013
Downalong is an excellent place to stay. It is a very spacious, bright place with lots of equipment to make the stay relaxed and enjoyable. The hot tub is excellent with great views to look at. The location is great as you don't have to travel far to get to the great beaches. We would recommend this property and wouldn't hesitate about staying here again.

We agree, Downalong is in a great position for getting to either coast, so you can choose your beach according to the wind direction - we love Porthtowan and Chapel Porth on the north coast, or try secret little Durgan beach near Falmouth on the south coast; it's tucked away on the boundary of the National Trust's Glendurgan gardens, so you can tie in a visit there too!
