Ms Sibbons November 2023
We have stayed at Winwallow Cottage twice now and each time have had a warm welcome from its owners and a lovely, warm and comfortable stay.
Mr Rodgers September 2023
We enjoyed 5 nights in September at Winwalloe cottage. One of a small group of cottages with friendly helpful owners onsite, it is a peaceful out of the way location, but an excellent base for exploring by car - Lerryn, Mevagissey, Fowey being just a few of our favourite places. There are many fabulous countryside and coastal walks including the South West Coastal path with its many coves and beaches. We enjoyed a good meal at the London Inn at St. Neots - friendly welcome, and also a drink at quaint old pub/restaurant, The Crown Inn at Lanlivery, very welcoming landlord. The cottage is comfortable and warm, would recommend and return.
Ms Sibbons August 2023
The lower floor of the cottage has laminate flooring which is easy to keep clean and the boot room is so useful in dealing with dirty dogs on a wet day. There is storage for shoes and many coat hooks in there. The lounge is cosy, having comfortable seating and soft lighting and a fire basket was provided on request. The kitchen is well equipped and has seating for four. Bedrooms are cosy and beds very comfortable. The bath and shower provide plenty of hot water.
Mr Axford August 2023
We stayed Winwalloe Cottage for a week at the end of August and had a lovely time. It is very peaceful and quiet, perfect for getting away from it all.
Would recommend the Penhale Pantry farm shop which is just up the road as well as Lansallos beach if you want to get away from the crowds.
Mr HARVEY June 2023
Lovely cottage with very friendly hosts. Great to enjoy the bird life. Lots of places to visit including Lanhydrock NT & the Duchy garden centre.
Mrs Favell August 2022
Perfect cottage for a relaxing week away from it all but close enough to some lovely beaches and places to visit. Would recommend The Plough at Duloe and The Coddy Shack if you don’t fancy cooking but the kitchen is very well equipped.
Mrs McCormack August 2022
We have very recently returned from a 7 day stay at this beautiful cottage. The cottage is so cute and lovely. Great location for children and dogs. The cottage is in a very rural location which is so peaceful and quiet.
The open fire in the living room is great for colder evenings and the beds are really comfy.
On arrival we met Laura and Tim ( owners) and they are great, so friendly and helpful nothing seems to much trouble. The homemade cookies on arrival were a great treat with a coffee. The cottage was very clean and tidy and there is everything you need.
Thank you for a great stay.
Mrs Wood August 2022
Beautiful lovely cottage in good location to get about. Nice friendly hosts on hand if needed . Very clean and everything you need with little garden to sit out privately . Our family will stay there again as it’s a bit of heaven !
Mrs Bishop July 2022
A delightful cottage in a beautiful peaceful location, within easy reach of both coasts. A warm friendly welcome from Laura and Tim with freshly baked cookies on arrival. A perfect week, would thoroughly recommend a holiday at Winwalloe.

Mrs Karaskova November 2021
Overall very happy and brilliant holiday
Mrs Clinnick November 2021
Tim & Laura were very friendly & approachable. Loved the extra personal touch of cookies on arrival & dog treats. Am sure we will return.
Mrs Tupling October 2021
The boot, drying, cloakroom was a godsend. Beds, very comfortable, we all slept really well. Our 2 grandsons loved the cottage and really enjoyed their time on the farm. The youngest overcame his fear of dogs playing with very gentle Meg. They benefitted from being away from gadgets etc., loving the fresh air and nature. We all loved walking through the woods.
Mrs Brown September 2021
Winwalloe Cottage was comfortable and cosy - a fabulous place to stay in a quiet location. The owners were welcoming, friendly and helpful. The cottage was well appointed and had everything we needed to make sure we enjoyed our holiday. We would highly recommend this place.
Mrs Robinson September 2021
Beautiful cottage, friendly owners, with 2 lovely dogs that greet you everytime they see you. Resident donkeys Hilda and Moby captured our attention and made us take a daily walk to feed them carrots. Really enjoyed our stay at Winwalloe, will one day return.
Mrs Evans August 2021
Comfortable cottage and owners very friendly. Easy to drive to some lovely beaches and walks in Cornwall - Fowey, Looe, Polkerris beach, Talland Bay
Ms Anderson August 2021
Lovely property in the depths of the countryside. Beautifully quiet and peaceful. Really comfy beds! Would love to return.
Mrs Carr June 2021
A delightful cottage in a beautiful rural location , exceptionally well presented, spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Within a few miles of the south eastern coast of Cornwall with lots of things to see and places to visit, a quiet and relaxing base for a holiday in this area, highly recommended.
Mr Masey June 2021
We enjoyed 6 days in this beautiful cottage. Our hosts were very welcoming and cookies were scrumptious! We loved the location and coming back after a day’s sightseeing we would sit in the pretty garden and think ‘this is bliss’. Not been to Cornwall in years and now wonder why? We were blessed with good weather and visited so many places. Loved Talland Bay but getting to it is not for the faint hearted! The Duchy garden centre, Lost gardens of Heligan, Polperro, Fowey, Polruan, Mevagissey all worth visiting. Would absolutely love to come back in the near future. Thank you Laura and Tim.
Mr Perkins June 2021
The cottage, garden and countryside around were beautiful and Laura & Tim are excellent hosts. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Would love to stay at Winwalloe Cottage again at some future time!
Miss Dixon April 2021
The cottage was beautiful so comfortable felt so homely everything you require and more. Lovely break and dog friendly would definitely recommend.
Mr Bailey October 2020
Simply furnished , comfortable , very clean and warm cottage with all the necessary facilities in a peaceful and relaxing location. We both enjoyed our stay and would be happy to return again to explore the area further.
Mr Goodland October 2020
We had a thoroughly enjoyable stay at Winwalloe Cottage. Although the location is reasonably rural, it offers a peaceful and tranquil retreat that is an ideal base for exploring the beautiful coast and towns nearby. The dog friendly cottage was warm and comfortable after our days out. Laura was really friendly and helpful throughout our stay and we hope to return in the future.
Mr Thomas October 2020
Wynwilloe Cottage is a lovely out-of-the-way cottage in a very secluded location. This was our second visit and there will almost certainly be a third !
Mr Russell August 2020
Lovely cottage, enjoyable stay. I'd like to think if we return to Cornwall we would book Winwalloe cottage again.
Mr Pullen July 2020
Delightful farm cottage in the heart of the countryside, recommended!
Mrs Woods July 2020
We had a fantastic stay at the cottage, it was the perfect home from home escape in these unusual times and so peaceful! The secluded location meant for a great night’s sleep even with a baby, yet it is near so many great walks, beaches and other attractions. The owners were extremely helpful and friendly, taking the covid precautions very seriously, which is very reassuring. Really recommend the fabulous Plough pub, unmissable! Thank you for a wonderful stay, we hope to book again.
Mrs Willoughby February 2020
Beautiful cottage. Tastefully decorated and well equipped. Very comfortable.
Mrs Dallas January 2020
Lovely cottage - very clean and well equipped. Hosts Laura and Tim very nice and helpful. The cottage is in a courtyard setting along with four other holiday cottages. The surrounding countryside is beautiful and there are some nice walks on the property itself so nice and private. Our dog enjoyed making friends with the two donkeys, Hilda and Moby who are very friendly and like being fed carrots! All in all a lovely break and wished I could have stayed longer.

Mr Rees November 2019
It rained one day
Mr Cash October 2019
Great comfortable cottage, perfectly fitted out with everything you need. Owners lovely and made us very welcome! Home baked cookies a real welcome treat.
Mrs cheeseman September 2019
A home from home where everything you could possible need is available for you to use. We enjoyed a lovely log fire on a chilly evening and it was so cosy. The beds were very comfortable and ample storage for clothing. Good size fridge and a small table top freezer that did the job. Couldn’t have had a a more relaxing holiday as we did there. The owners Laura and Tim were there for our arrival and very welcoming, including some homemade cookies which were delicious.
Mrs McDonald August 2019
A magical journey once we reached Scawn. Through tiny twisty roads of tree tunnels. A couple of buzzards showed themselves to us on numerous occasions, sometimes right in front of us. Lovely setting to have cottages.
Mrs Stevenson July 2019
Lovely cottage in the countryside to use as a base to visit both north and south coasts of Cornwall and some outstanding local attractions such a Lanhydrock and Lost Gardens of Heligan and the not to missed inspirational Eden Project.
Mr Whyton June 2019
This is a well thought out and very comfortable cottage that has everything you need. Parking is easy and there is a nice garden area if you just want to chill. Looe and Polperro are easily reached but our favourite place was Talland Bay, which had every amenity as well as a stunning beach. Keeping enough change for parking is a pain so I recommend the 'just park' app on your phone which you can keep topping up if you want to stay longer without rushing back to your car to feed the meter.
Mr Thomas June 2019
The cottage was superb. Not even a spec of dust visible and freshly baked cookies left for us on arrival. Everything that you could want is provided. I cannot praise this property too highly. We had an amazing stay.
Mr Rees June 2019
This cottage exceeded our expectations and was very cosy and comfortable. We looked forward to returning each evening for a pleasant and very peaceful evening in front of the log fire. The hosts were very welcoming, as were the dogs, donkeys and most of the sheep. It seems quite isolated but it very close to Looe, Polperro, Charlestown, and Fowey. We would also recommend a visit to Lanhydrock. We would highly recommend this cottage.
Mrs Burgess May 2019
A beautiful hidden gem. Wonderful stay, the kids absolutely loved it not wanting to leave.
Mr Hose April 2019
Winwalloe cottage is an extremely well equipped holiday cottage, very comfortable with a real home from home feel, set in a very peaceful location with lovely walks through owners woodland, ideal for a relaxing break and for touring this part of Cornwall.
Mrs Garland February 2019
An extremely well presented and comfortable cottage in a lovely, peaceful location, ideal for exploring northeastern Cornwall. Highlights for us included walking on Bodmin Moor and along the Southwest Coast Path and a visit to the National Trust's excellent cycle trails at Lanhydrock.
Mrs Taylor November 2018
Lovely peaceful Cornish cottage. Very quiet location. Cottage very well equipped and the owners were really welcoming.
Mrs Cansdale October 2018

Mr Reeves October 2017
A most enjoyable experience, would definitely consider staying again.
Ms Graham September 2017
This is a lovely cottage in a great area, ideal for exploring Cornwall. Easy to get to places like the Eden Project and Bodmin Moor. Beautifully rural and quiet but easy to get to the supermarket. Owners were really helpful, friendly and unobtrusive - the birthday bottle of wine went down well ! Thank you
Mr Frampton August 2017
Had a great holiday in Winwalloe. Its a lovely cottage, in a beautiful and tranquil countryside location. Ideal if you like to be away from the hustle & bustle of town life, yet everything you need in terms of shops and places to visit is only a short drive away.
Mrs Vesely May 2017
Beautifully decorated cottage set far off the beaten track. Although the owners are in the house next door they did not interfere with our stay but were always available to help.
