Had a very enjoyable stay and would certainly return in the future.

It was a really nice stay - we loved the atmosphere and the character of the house! The kitchen was well equipped for our needs, the kids loved the billiard-table and we enjoyed the spaciousness of Rosedale. The garden is pretty, too. As a pitty, due to the weather we couldn’t really use it but we had a nice view out of the rear windows! :-)
Lying on the top of the hill in Lelant, it offered us great possibilities to spend our holidays. (After figuring out that 16 degrees Celsius, a cloudy sky and NO RAIN means beach weather in Cornwall, we spent wonderful days in Carbis Bay, we especially recomend the Towans beach in Haley! ) All the great sights in South West Cornwall were comfortable to reach, within an hour you even reach the Eden Project. A great basecamp for exploring Cornwall, if we ever visit Cornwall again, we would be glad to rent the house again.

Whilst the property was comfortable we wouldn't return. Too many knick knacks esp in the kitchen which we moved out of the way to make the kitchen more user friendly. The living/dining room felt too personal with family photos. The number of sundry trinkets throughout the house spoilt our stay. The hedge on the terrace spoils what would otherwise be a lovely view when sitting out. I couldn't get either of the coffee pod machines to work ( European plug which despite finding an adaptor, still would not work). The contact details in the house folder was off putting as it stated do not contact the housekeeper for such things as where is the frying pan, so we felt we couldn't bother her. Whist the knick knacks are not of your making, it would have been helpful if the description made it clear they existed and the house is used frequently by the owner so there are a number of family personal items throughout the house that are on show. Also the contacting housekeeper point was not helpful. Having said that your booking service was good.

Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts. The cottage is a much loved family home and, as such, does contain some ornaments and trinkets that the owner has collected over the years. A lot of guests love this personal touch and take the view that it makes the house all the more individual. However in light of your thoughts, the owner has 'decluttered' a little to remove some of the surplus items. We have many properties within our portfolio, including more minimalist modern options, and if you'd like to have a chat about them then please do give us a call. Tanya, Customer Support
