Mattresses on all three beds were worn out and unsatisfactory. No bathroom mirror lights. Hob extractor fan and lighting did not work. Electric oven dated and needs replacing. Only one chopping board that is heat damaged on one side. Microwave oven is dated - cannot set the time accurately and is low power 700W. Very slow WiFi - cannot even watch BBC iPlayer.

It's a lovely property but the owners need to be more proactive in checking everything works before tenants check-in.

We're so sorry to hear you had some problems at the cottage; this isn't what we'd expect at all. We'll be following up with the housekeeper about the inventory items and with the owner about your suggested upgrades. The WiFi is a standard package for browsing the web and emails etc, but may not always be fast enough for streaming. Thanks so much for making us aware. Tressa, Customer Support

I really liked the cottage and the cute shops and stable cafe behind the cottage I found Horseshoe Cottage clean, welcoming and homely. An absolutely lovely place to stay.

Many Thanks for the welcome gift; I enjoyed the tour of Edgecumbe House

Thanks for sharing your lovely review, we're delighted you had a good stay at Mount Edgcumbe. Did you get the chance to try the Orangery garden cafe too, down by the Cremyll Ferry? We're told they do a great Sunday roast....Tanya, Customer Support

September 2018

Had a fantastic time at the cottage it was warm the staff were very helpful and friendly on site. Fantastic access to the grounds and the dog thought it was amazing to be out of the door an into the walk immediately. Food at the stables and orangery was lovely too so if we didnt want to cook it was easy - definitely would go again

July 2018

A lovely cottage, very peaceful location away from the busier tourist areas of Cornwall. Lots of places to explore and perfect if you have your canine companion with you! Quite magical in the evening after the park has closed.

Horseshoe cottage is a beautiful, well equipped holiday home in a stunning estate, which overall offered everything we needed for a relaxing holiday.

August 2017

If you have kids or a dog then Horseshoe Cottage at Mount Edgecombe Country Park is an ideal holiday. We didn't have to leave the park all week, spending our days exploring, walking, paddling in the sea and riding our bikes. Beautiful location, friendly people - we didn't want to go home.

August 2017

A delightful cottage in a lovely location with activities nearby to suit all the family - walks, gardens, sea views, two lovely cafe's, arts and crafts plust disc golf, cycling.

August 2017

Absolutely lovely - I could have stayed forever!

July 2017

Stunning and very Beautiful. The park is magical at night!!

June 2017

We had a most enjoyable stay at the cottage for our son's wedding. The position and layout enabled us to take an elderly grandparent in a wheelchair to the wedding who was determined not to miss the occasion.

April 2017

This lovely little cottage is a little gem. It's spacious and very comfortable and where it is situated in the park is fantastic. We parked the car when we arrived and didn't use it again until we left. Mount Edgcumbe is a wonderful place with beautiful views, gardens, walks, coastline and also Mount Edgcumbe House. It is very dog friendly and our dog thoroughly enjoyed his holiday too. The people we met who worked on the estate were very friendly and helpful. The booking via the website was easy and the contact from Classic Cottages was brilliant, quick & effiecient and full of helpful information. We would definitely use Classic Cottages again and hope to return to this wonderful place in the future.

April 2017

Amazing location and park with lots to see and do and very dog friendly.

September 2016

Horseshoe cottage is the perfect place to go de-stress. The peace and tranquility are second to none. An ideal property for energetic dogs, lots of varied and inspiring walks. Friendly staff who always have time for a chat and offer advice. A place we will return to when possible

September 2016

We had a lovely stay in the cottage. So relaxing to walk the gardens and enjoy the views. Plenty to see and do without even getting in your car. The disc golf course is an amazing way to enjoy the property and get a pro game on!

August 2016

You can't stay at Horseshoe Cottage without falling in love with the beauty and history of Mt Edgcumbe Country Park. It's a complete break from the push and shove of everyday life. The cottage is spacious and comfortable and a lovely base to explore this quiet corner of Cornwall. The views, walks, wildlife and formal gardens are wonderful and we found all the estate staff and volunteers very friendly and informative. The 'rebuilt' House is a great visit and unlike some 'stuffy' old stately homes provides for younger guests really well. There aren't too many big shops locally but this all adds to the charm and an online supermarket order done before we arrived sorted out our grocery needs for the week. We enjoyed trips to Looe for a good family beach, the Cremyll foot ferry to Plymouth and the Eden Project but actually quality time spent simply on Mt Edgcumbe was our favourite thing. We'd go again in a heartbeat!

June 2016
