Miss Stephens April 2021
This was our first time staying in a Classic Cottages property and it exceeded our expectations. Our hosts were so welcoming, the Pavillion was well equipped, catered to all our needs for self catering and remote working, and we thoroughly enjoyed the peaceful location and sunny sheltered deck. We had a wonderful stay here.
Mrs Strickland October 2020
We really enjoyed our stay at The Pavilion, it was perfect for us and our dog. The living space is great and the view from the bifold doors in the lounge with the horses and the sheep relaxing to see. The location is very good, you can visit many places in very little time. We would not hesitate to recommend and would like to visit again in the future.
Mrs Stabbins October 2020
We had an excellent stay, the property is warm even without any heating or fire on which was amazing. Loved watching the resident horses in the fields and having cuddles with Pumpkin the cat.
Mr Leverton October 2020
If you are looking for a comfy retreat, just for two people, then you really should give the Pavilion a try. A quiet and secluded spot it may be, but its well located to explore Cornwall.
Mr Wingate October 2019
A very nice, well furnished, comfortable and warm cottage in a farm location with wonderful views over fields. If we go back to this part of Cornwall we would be happy to stay again.
Mrs Munro September 2019
Had the most amazing holiday. Accommodation was absolutely beautiful so peaceful and quiet. Everything you could ask for. Definitely home from home and will definitely be booking for 2020. Owners were so lovely and left scones, jan, cream and tea so welcoming.
Mrs Wright August 2019
We had a wonderful stay at The Pavilion! It was very homely, with great facilities. We loved having the bifold doors open, it really extended the living place. The outside space was completely secure meaning our dog could wonder in and out as he pleased. The hosts were very nice and available if you need anything, but not intrusive. The Pavilion is in a great location for visiting lots of different places including Portscatho, Falmouth, St Mawes, St Ives, and Lizard Point if you don’t mind travelling a bit further! We thoroughly recommend staying at The Pavilion!
Mrs Booty July 2019
We have stayed at many excellent Classic Cottages, but this was by far the best. There is not one thing you could want for, everything has been catered for. The fixtures and fittings are of top quality and you can tell it has been given so much thought to make sure your holiday is fantastic. To look out of the bi-fold doors, every morning onto the beautiful field, with the horses and sheep is so calming. The best weeks sleep we have ever had, we loved watching the stars through the sky light, truly amazing. Sally and Greg greeted us and made us very welcome, the cornish cream tea was wonderful after such a long journey. The village of Shortlanesend is an ideal spot for touring all of Cornwall. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to stay in The Pavillion, we will be back, and have recommended to family and friends.
Mrs Ashfield May 2019
We had a delight relaxing week at The Pavilion, the patio faced west so sitting in the sun trap was glories. The gate is only 2' high so to our surprise, on the last evening our large dog jumped over in it in pursuit of Pumpkin, the dog aware cat, who disappeared promptly into the barn. Wifi and shower were very good and the whole accommodation worked perfectly for two persons. It was well stocked and fresh scones a delight.
Mrs Lawrence January 2019
We just spent a fantastic week at The Pavilion. A wonderfully cosy, modern, property that exceeded expectation. Real quality furnishings and equipment provided, and the wood burner is fabulous. The location of The Pavilion is peaceful and has a feeling of being away from it all, whilst being only a 10 min drive into Truro, which has all the amenities and supermarkets that anyone might need. The owners, Sally and Greg are really friendly and helpful, and can advise on activities and places to visit. Highlights for us: walking the Lizard peninsula, and visiting Perranporth, and St.Ives. Lovely touch of a cream tea waiting for us on arrival day. Very dog friendly. Perfect in every way.
Mr Dunn December 2018
We went for Christmas and the new year but I think that the Pavilion would be an absolute delight in the spring /summer. Such a pretty location
Mrs Compton August 2018
As we had our dog with us, the ability to let him run in the field was a very welcome bonus. Walking him around the nearby lanes was easy and almost traffic free.
The location of The Pavilion is within easy reach of so many attractions, even Land's End is within a reasonable distance.
Last but certainly not least, the owners could not have been more helpful.
Mr Webb August 2018
Really appreciated the location with lots of attractions within easy travelling. Furnished to a high standard. Warm and cosy. Although weather went cool did not have to use the wood stove. Good WiFi service.
Mrs Whitelaw July 2018
Second holiday to the Pavilion and we just love it. Sally and Greg are excellent hosts and always make you feel very welcome . The accommodation is very comfortable and spotless, has everything you need. Fantastic base for getting out and about in Cornwall.
Mrs Mason July 2018
A quiet relaxing get away in a central location.
Mrs Hallam July 2018
Ideal for a couple, good location for visiting all parts of Cornwall make sure you go in the daylight would be difficult to find in the dark
Mr Freeman May 2018
You will not be disappointed when you stay at the pavilion. This holiday cottage will truly make your holiday be one to remember.
Mrs Sherriff March 2018
This is a fantastic property in a rural location yet close to City of Truro. Lots of walks close by and the owners are very friendly and helpful. The barn is homely, clean and modern and we have had a wonderful and enjoyable stay.
Mr Williams December 2017
We’ve stayed in cottages for the last two to three years all through classic this is by far the pick of the bunch location perfect cottage fixture and fittings are of a high standard hosts were really nice couldn’t ask for more will be back again soon
Mr Wightlaw July 2017
Loved out stay !
We really liked the set up and decor which added to the tranquil feel of the property and made such a pleasant change to the hustle bustle of city life. The fresh flowers and cream tea that greeted us helped us feel most welcome and right at home.
The property is set up so well and ideal for a lovely base to explore the wonders of Cornwall.
A superb location, just a few minutes out of Thuro which has a real good mix of independent shops as well as some well known retail chains and a fabulous museum and cafe.
To the North is access to the main A30 with easy journeys to the North Coast towns of St Agnes, Wadebridge/Padstow and St Ives. We would recommend for food to walk around the corner to Penrose Kitchen (Probably the Best Sunday Roast ever ! ). Also the Hawkins Arms at Zelah does some lovely Pub food along with a fine welcome.
Many thanks to Greg and Sally our pleasant hosts for helping make our holiday so memorable !

Mr Farkas April 2017

Miss Coles March 2017

Had an excellent stay the owners were very welcoming,chatty,and helpful. Would revisit this property with no hesitation first class accommodation for a very affordable price and have already recommended to friends. We loved it and very suitable for our little dog. Oh and the bed was to die for
Ms Hooker October 2016
The accommodation is spacious for two, and very comfortable. Everything has been thought of and it is a very easy base for a holiday.
Mrs Milne October 2016
Great cottage, plenty of room for 2 and our dog!
Mr Graves September 2016
Excellent stay; great location with easy access to both north and South coasts. Cottage perfect size for 2 with all necessary facilities. Easy access to outside space and field for our slightly aging canine companion; unfortunately he overexerted himself on the local beaches and we had to cut our holiday short by a day; but thankfully now fully recovered.
Greg and Sally perfect hosts; friendly, helpful and there when you needed them (see above doggy drama) but otherwise unobtrusive.
Mr Tuttle July 2016
Our holiday accomodation is very clean and everything has been thought of. Lots to watch on the fields behind the cottage. Very peaceful but not too far from Truro.
Mr Mitchell July 2016
Top notch all round, an excellent property and location.
Mr Shaw June 2016
Ideal property for two. Ticks all the boxes. Delightful setting. Ideal position for visiting all Cornwall. Secluded yet only two minutes drive off the main road to Truro. Fixtures and fittings of a very high standard.
Mrs Derry March 2016
Fabulous cottage furnished to a very high standard with everything you need for your stay. There are lovely views from all the windows and light streams into the property. Great location which is quiet and feels like you are in the middle of nowhere and yet you are only 2 miles from Truro. It is also in a great area to walk the dogs in the lanes and has walking from the door. The owners were extremely helpful and friendly making us feel very welcome. We would highly recommend this cottage as it is beautiful and in a great central location and not too far from any part of Cornwall. We hope to return next year!
Mr Hughes December 2015
Fabulous. We had a lovely Christmas break here. Owners welcoming, friendly and helpful. Great spot for exploring Poldark settings. Truro very close for shopping but rural setting with horses in field behind. Great wood stove although the property does not really need one as well insulated. Truro cathedral worth a visit. Some great restaurants within easy driving distance. Would most definitely come back. We absolutely loved it!
Mrs Forde December 2015
The property was absolutely immaculate and so cosy and comfortable. It was extremely well stocked and owners were so welcoming. We shall definatley be returning.

Mrs Klein June 2015
Hearty welcome, roses on the table, tea and pastries, local specialities in the fridge... fantastic situation! We were with 2 dogs, they could let off steam in the wonderful area. The beach is 10 minutes away, where dogs are also permitted.
