A lovely warm cottage that we all enjoyed spending a relaxing week in.

September 2019

Cottage in a lovely location, and generally comfortable and well equipped. It should also be mentioned in the description that the garden isn't entirely safely enclosed for a dog. We used the garden furniture to create barriers at each side of the house to prevent our dog from accessing the front garden from where he would have been able to escape.

Reply from Classic Cottages

We're delighted that you enjoyed your stay at the cottage, it really is in a great spot. We're sorry to hear that the garden wasn't entirely escape-proof for your four-legged friend - there are hedges and shrubs all the way around the perimeter and a gate to the front, but we've asked the housekeeper to investigate any areas where the boundary could be improved. Thanks so much for letting us know. Emma, Customer Support

My family and I wanted a quiet and peaceful getaway . At Mays cottage we found the perfect location for all our needs. Mays cottage is a beautiful rustic house set in the heart of the countryside surrounded by fields and sheep. In the house we found plenty to do with games books and dvds all provided. Thank you for a fabulous holiday.

Beautiful comfortable home from home, a lovely place to spend Christmas.

August 2016

A really excellent secluded location in North Cornwall.

July 2016

What a fabulous cottage, a real ' home from home' - everything you could possibly need in a fabulous location. Near to some excellent beaches for surfing and dog walking and to some superb pubs. The service I received from Classic cottages was excellent throughout the booking process. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend both Mays cottage and Classic cottages to friends and am already looking forward to booking our holiday next year.

July 2016

A comfortable well-equipped cottage in a fantastic quiet location - just the sound of sheep and the occasional car. A delightful, private and well-kept garden to sit out in and a useful conservatory for when the weather is cooler. We had a terrible journey down and arrived at 10 p.m. rather than the planned 8 p.m. Having texted the Housekeeper to let her know of this change the lights had been left on in the cottage which, given its remote location, we were grateful for. The cake which had been left for us was also very welcome. I would recommend this cottage to anyone for whom peace and quiet is important when they go on holiday. Additionally I would also like to mention Trevathan Farm Shop and Restaurant which is just along the road and very convenient for the cottage. It is excellent for breakfast, morning coffee, lunch or tea. There is space for children to run around and they also have a farm shop with lovely fresh produce and gifts.
