this property is perfect. Rob and Julie have thought about absolutely everything and made it very easy to settle in. even down to a box of tissues in the living room!. the property was cleaned and maintained to a high standard. the area was perfect for touring the southern coast which we did.


August 2018

We had a great week. The cottage is immaculate and very well equipped. Lots of home touches including delicious cream tea and home made pasties on our arrival. Lovely private patio area with a bbq, ideal for Al fresco dining (weather permitting) Ideal for exploring this part of Cornwall, with easy access to A30 and many attractions/beaches. Perfect hosts live next door and were available if required. Would definitely recommend and would stay here again if in the area.


July 2018

The property is clean, comfortable and in excellent decorative order. Plenty of home touches and the welcome pasties and scones were very welcome indeed! Lots of nearby beaches and coastal walks to enjoy with quality cafes along the way. Plus easy and reasonably priced bike hire nearby. Would definitely stay here again if visiting this part of Cornwall.


July 2018

We had a wonderful week and would be happy to return to the Lily Pad. We would also recommend it to our friends. The owners were very helpful and friendly and keep this delightful property maintained beautifully. The location is perfect for touring Cornwall. There is easy access to the A30, it is very handy for Tesco and the coast is only a few miles away. If like us you want to explore by bike it is a brilliant base but bring O.S maps to make the most of the quieter roads. The property also has excellent access to cycle routes. The secure bike store (surfboard store) is a brilliant addition.

Lilypad Cottage is a beautiful cottage, everything and more than we could have wished for. Well equipped, very clean, nice touches with flowers , beautifully decorated , very well thought out and well presented, which all adds to the relaxing feeling you want to experience on holiday. We don't normally stay so far inland but due to just recovering from an operation thought this might be a better option, and we loved it. Good local shops, within easy reach of local beaches and lots of places to go nearby for days out. The owners were very approachable and on arrival had left us pasties, scones with clotted cream and jam. This was very welcome after a long drive. This was our favourite cottage so far, and we have used Classic Cottages for about 10 years now, we will definitely be going to The Lily Pad again. Ruth Hastings

Avery well placed cottage for exploring Southwest Cornwall. The cottage had everything you needed to live comfortably and the owners were very welcoming and friendly, but not intrusive.


November 2017

We booked last minute and were kindly accommodated by the owners who provided a warm welcome on arrival, as well as a lovely cream tea - thank you. This property is absolutely stunning, the photographs on CC website do not do this gorgeous cottage justice. It is SPOTLESSLY clean and super comfortable, providing an excellent base from which to enjoy our mini break. Lovely decor and furnishings. The bed was comfortable, the shower superb. We have stayed in countless cottages, both with CC and other holiday companies and this is by far one of the best. We will be back.....thank you.

This is a very comfortable cottage in a good location for visiting the beautiful beaches and villages of both north and south coasts of Cornwall.


June 2017

Stayed at the lily pad for a week. We had a great experience. The cottage surpassed all expectations and our hosts Rob and Julie were very friendly and most helpful. The lily pad is ideally situated with easy links to the A30 and only a short drive to the coast. There are some beautiful walks in the area especially along the coast, we even saw a pod of dolphins ! We would highly recommend this cottage and would definitely come back again

The LiliPad is a quality property in every way, and exceeded many of our expectations. It is spotlessly clean and very comfortable. It provided us with an excellent base for visiting beaches, taking walks, and exploring Cornwall in general. The owners/hosts, Rob & Julie are delightful people, and made us feel very welcome. The little extras they provided us with on arrival, were a real treat. Highly recommended!

October 2016

A delightful, well equipped, cosy retreat. Beautifully presented. The owners had thought of everything to make our stay enjoyable.


September 2016

High quality spec excellent value for money


August 2016

Beautiful accommodation, the decoration has been so well thought through and we really did feel like we were at home. The owners could not have been more helpful, advising us on places to eat and helping me plan cycle routes around the area. The scones and Cornish pasties were a real treat and such a nice touch. Could not recommend a stay at The Lipypad enough.


August 2016

Originally struggled booking a place not wanting a full week or a Saturay start but after a phone call to Classic the member of staff was able to guide me on which properties would allow this. Beautifully decorated cottage. Owners have clearly gone to a lot of trouble and put in a lot of extra special touches. It was lovely to be greeted by afternoon tea and Cornish Pasties at the cottage on arrival. We weren't originally looking to stay at Cambourne but it was located to visit all of Cornwall. Would definitely recommend and would visit again. Exceeded our expectations!


July 2016

The standard of this cottage is exceptional. Clean and homely. Everything you need is provided. Great central location for exploring Cornwall. Would recommend.


June 2016

Had a great holiday in this cosy, comfortable cottage. Rob and Julie very helpful. Had all we needed for a quiet relaxing holiday. Great coastal walking.


April 2016

Stayed here for a relaxing holiday, and the Lilypad exceeded all of our expectations. With a light, airy and well thought out decor which made for beautiful and comfort filled surroundings. This was perfect for our stay which included a few days exploring the neighbouring towns and villages and the rest spent in the cottage enjoying some r&r. Friendly reception from the owners who made it clear that anything we might need we need only ask. Such a warm welcome, would highly recommend and would definitely return.


February 2016

Lilypad cottage was a pleasure to stay in. Myself and my boyfriend were and still, highly impressed as we hope that our house will be like this one day. Interior was immaculate and there were enought sights to visit around Cornwall! Brilliant for a weekend (my birthday away). Julie and Rob even left a birthday card and balloon. We hope to stay again. Highly recommend people to stay at Lilypad! Thank you Rob and Julie for a lovely place to stay in after a long trip from Kent. From Izzy and Kieron.


October 2015

We felt quite honoured to be the 1st occupants of the "Lillypad" ! It is really cosy & comfortable and Rob & Julie have thought of everything that you could possibly need to have a great holiday and were great hosts. Would definitely book it again.
