Our fourth stay at this property. Excellent as always

We had a fantastic stay at this property in early June. The property is immaculate throughout and if you are looking for tranquility, you will find it here. The touches of a welcoming cream tea, selection of teas, bread and milk were a delight after a long car journey and a slight overshoot when looking for the property!

Lovely well set out cottage, ideal for 2 couples sharing with both bedrooms having en suite facilities. Plus a large safe garden if you have children or a dog.

Extremely comfortable and welcoming cottage. Wonderful outside space with the lawn leading down to the stream. Perfect place for a quiet and peaceful holiday.

Beautiful property! Extremely clean and well equipped. The scones, chocolates, Prosecco, clotted cream and jam left for us upon arrival were such a nice touch that was really appreciated. I highly recommend this property for a nice peaceful break away and we look forward to going back.

This was the best cottage we have rented in Cornwall so far, they had thought of everything you could need and left us some nice surprises on arrival it was a really beautiful place, the garden was perfect for our dogs and we did not need to worry about them getting out.

This was our second stay at Kingfisher Cottage and it didn't disappoint. It's a beautiful location, so peaceful and relaxing, and most of the great beaches and towns of Cornwall aren't too far away.

The owners Glen and Lynsey have thought of everything - even hot and cold water for our dogs. The welcome goodies we fab, especially the handmade chocolates.

We are trying somewhere new next year, to see another part of Cornwall, but am sure we will book the cottage again for 2023. It feels like home to us.

Kingfisher cottage is in a beautiful location with all the modern facilities you need The welcome treats are very much appreciated The garden is beautiful and peaceful Our third visit and we hope to come again Just perfect

We thoroughly enjoyed our third stay at Kingfisher. We return to this cottage because of it’s beautiful, tranquil location, it’s accessibility to the coast, and everything within the cottage is perfect. We appreciated the Welcome Pack, particularly the handmade Herodsfoot chocolates! Thanks to Glen and Lynsey for everything!

Lovely cottage, perfect for walks inland and on the coast.

A beautifully renovated cottage, with good quality furnishings and furniture. Lovely showers and comfortable beds. Wifi very good. A very tranquil setting, lovely to hear the rippling stream. The driveway and garden are very well enclosed for my dogs. The garden is a very good size and well maintained. There is even an outside hot and cold tap and hose to wash dogs off after a muddy walk! Great attention to detail. The owner was very helpful when I had a parcel delivered to the cottage. I';d love to return.

Kingfisher is a delightful cottage in idyllic surroundings. It is extremely well equipped, warm and very comfortable, and we would happily return another time. Thank you for a much needed and restorative break.

Great place. Lovely and clean, spacious and nicely done up. Great location - onsite and to explore the surroundings. Thank you.

This is the nicest holiday cottage that we have ever stayed in. It is in a beautiful quiet setting with a lovely stream running through the garden. The cottage was immaculately clean so we felt we did not have to worry about the corona virus. The owners were helpful when we needed them and had left lots of goodies for our arrival,including a cream tea. Everything that you could possibly need (and more ) had been provided in the cottage. We would love to stay at the there again and would definitely recommend it to our friends and family.

Our second stay at Kingfisher Cottage and every bit as wonderful as our first visit. A green and tranquil spot with a large, private garden with frontage on to the West Looe river. The cottage itself is cosy and comfortable, immaculately maintained and spotlessly clean: a great credit to the friendly and approachable owners, Glen and Lynsey.

Recommend unreservedly.

Wonderful holiday cottage in a very peaceful area but close enough to beaches etc. Well appointed and felt spacious for 3 adults and a dog! Two good bathrooms. Lovely garden with relaxing sun loungers, plenty of lawn and a stream at the bottom. We loved the generous welcome pack - Prosecco and a cream tea! Great!

Kingfisher Cottage is in a wonderful peaceful location, which we loved and was exactly what we wanted. We felt totally relaxed and enjoyed our stay from start to finish, especially when sitting in the garden listening the stream at the end of lawn.

The cottage is tastefully decorated, well equipped and the shower was spot on! The welcome pack was a nice surprise and much appreciated. We met the owners Glen and Lynsey on our last night, they were very friendly and made us feel comfortable. We've already booked for next year.

Outstanding cottage in every way. Beautifully furnished with luxury bathrooms - the owners have thought of everything. There was an incredibly generous welcome pack on arrival. The fabulous garden with a bench by the stream at the bottom, was the icing on the cake. We couldn’t have been happier.

We would happily go back to Kingfisher Cottage. It's in a beautiful, peaceful spot in the Cornish countryside.

A beautiful cottage in a tranquil setting - it was a delight to stay there, very peaceful and quiet just what was needed! It was furnished to a high standard which made the stay very comfortable and relaxing. The welcome pack was very much appreciated and a lovely surprise! Glen and Lynsey were very welcoming and great hosts! Thank you for your kind hospitality.

Especially loved all the local gifts left in the cottage from Prosecco to clotted cream.

Rarely have we felt so welcome, as in Kingfisher Cottage. The lovingly furnished with the highest comfort makes the stay so relaxing. There is no wish left. The most beautiful is to enjoy the sunset in the wonderful garden. We would have liked to stay longer!

** An exceptional cottage in a beautiful location with outstanding hosts. The cottage etc is by far the best we have stayed in. The attention to detail along with the friendliness of our hosts was first class!! We actually phoned classic cottages the day after our arrival to inform that we were so pleased with it. Please pass on our sentiments and thanks to Glen and Lyndsey. We would love to visit again.

Lovely cottage and surroundings. A great holiday.

We loved Kingfisher Cottage, it’s a very peaceful & relaxing place. Fully equipped with everything we could want & some lovely thoughtful gifts left for us as well. We celebrated our daughters 18th Birthday while we were there & they made it extra special. Even our dog loved it! The area is lovely although the lanes leading to the cottage are very narrow, so be warned if you have a large vehicle! Don’t let that put you off though, it is a beautiful place where you can truly relax.

Great cottage for a relaxing holiday with very nice destinations in the area.

Tolles Cottage für einen entspannenden Urlaub mit sehr schönen Zielen in der Umgebung.

My wife and I have stayed in many cottages in Cornwall over the years and for us this simply the best, the location was idyllic - peaceful and relaxing - and the cottage was finished to a very high standard, everything you would want was there plus there were many thoughtful additional touches. Our hosts Lynsey and Glen were delightful people and very helpful. Loved the place!

A gorgeous property in every way. The furnishings and bedding were luxurious and beautiful. Extremely well equipped. The garden was an oasis of peace and tranquility with the stream gently flowing by at the bottom. Our two dogs loved it and it was totally secure for them so we didn’t have to worry about them getting out. Comfortable sun loungers for us humans to laze away the sunny days. I cannot fault this cottage in any way and I would thoroughly recommend it.

Thanks so much for your wonderful review! We're so pleased that you and your four-legged friends had such an enjoyable visit. Kingfisher Cottage is indeed a fabulous retreat, with the added bonus of being well located to explore this lovely part of the county. Hopefully we can welcome you back soon. Tressa, Customer Support

We rate this cottage very highly and could find no fault at all. The owners are very welcoming and the cottage has everything you could want for both people and dogs. It’s a very special place and we would go back tomorrow. It’s extremely well placed for days out on both coasts as well as walks inland.

Our second visit to Kingfisher cottage and I am sure it won't be our last. The setting is idyllic and the cottage and garden beautiful The owners left a lovely cream tea as well as other treats. They obviously put a lot into the cottage and its facilities

This is a delightful cottage with a beautiful peaceful garden which is fully enclosed and much enjoyed by our cocker spaniel. The internal equipment and furnishings were tasteful and of high quality, we found everything we needed and more. The cream tea and prosecco left as a welcome pack were indeed very welcome after our journey and greatly enjoyed in the garden. We chatted to the friendly owner who was keen to know if we had everything we needed. All in all I place I would gladly return to and recommend to friends and family. Thank you for a lovely stay.

Kingfisher cottage is a wonderful dog-friendly retreat. The cottage is well designed, beautifully furnished and the cleanest cottage we've ever been to. The owners are just great; so welcoming, helpful and pleasant. They clearly understand the needs and wants of holidaymakers and really go all-out to provide the best possible outcome. The location is just great for dogs...and humans. We will return!

Excellent 5* cottage, everything has been catered for. Giving you peace of mind for a truly relaxing stay in beautiful surroundings. Glyn was extremely helpful and friendly. Thank you for a wonderful long weekend. Suzanne McGowan.

Loved the peaceful and quiet setting of the cottage. Glen and Lynsey the owners make you feel very much at home, offer excellent advise on where to visit and eat locally. The cottage has a beautiful garden to sit and relax in. The welcome pack was very much appreciated and the overall standard of the cottage was extremely high. Would love to stay again. Thank you Glen and Lynsey

This is by far the best holiday cottage we have stayed in for a very long time. When you holiday with a dog you don't normally get to stay in such a cottage as this one , top quality furnishings and fittings - very dog friendly rather than tolerated.

A perfect cottage in an idyllic setting. Every thought given to what you might want to have an excellent stay.

Beautiful cottage, furnished so well and in a beautiful setting. Owners so welcoming.

A great little cottage - very well appointed - the enclosed garden is ideal for dogs - the welcoming scones & cream and wine in the fridge were very acceptable.

The location of this cottage is superb, in a rural and quaint little village, but very convenient for exploring both coasts. We were impressed by the high quality of the decor and specifications of the property throughout, and by the kindness of the hosts. The "goodie" pack on arrival was amazing and added to the general feeling of being very welcome. The garden with stream at the bottom is ideal for napping or relaxing after a long day exploring Cornwall. Last but not least, the cottage is very dog-friendly (owners are dog lovers!).

The cottage has more than exceeded our expectations. Rarely have we felt so comfortable and welcome. Many little things were perfectly prepared and the owners made us a warm welcome. Smallest requests were fulfilled immediately and we enjoyed our visit in a very private atmosphere. The cottage is furnished with love and equipped to a very high modern standard. It was very difficult for us to leave, and we will definitely come back.

The Cottage is beautifully decorated. In an ideal position in a tranquil valley but close to looe and its amenities. Thoughtful extras left by the hosts - cream tea, milk and prosecco. As well as little extras to get you started with tea coffee etc We didn't want to leave!

An excellent converted barn with lovely décor and special touches set in a peaceful setting where you an relax and unwind.

Amazing cottage in a beautiful location. The owners have done a fantastic job of decorating the cottage and were very surprised to receive all the extras such as fire wood, milk, eggs and fudge as well as the homemade scones. None of us wanted to leave!!

We really enjoyed staying at kingfisher cottage,the attention to detail made our stay very comfortable,having the wood burner with an unlimited supply of logs made it very warm and cosy. Beautiful walks along the river,perfect for us and our dog Dougal,really helpful host Glen,with useful suggestions for walks and meals out. An enjoyable,peaceful place to relax and unwind,would highly recommend.

The hosts were really helpful and friendly, having outside warm tap for washing dog at end of walk was great!

We really enjoyed our stay. The cottage was warm and cosy and we enjoyed the wood burner as the Autumn storms raged outside! We loved the decor and attention to detail, especially our welcome goodies! Our two Labradoodles were happy and we enjoyed lovely woodland walks from the cottage. Glen and Lyns were welcoming and attentive when we needed them. Overall a relaxing break in a wonderful cottage.

A lovely cottage set in beautiful countryside with a stream at the bottom of the garden. Idyllic.

We thought Kingfisher Cottage was just gorgeous. We particularly liked the attention to detail in the furnishings and the finishing touches provided by the hosts. We have recommended it to all our friends and would love to stay again!

An excellent cottage in a lovely location. The attention to detail was exceptional and a cottage that we would love to return to.

An excellent cottage. The attention to detail is fantastic. Very comfortable and look forward to returning in the future.

Book your holiday at Kingfisher Cottage, and you won't be disappointed! We've stayed in many five star equivalent cottages over the years. Kingfisher Cottage has come out on top! I cannot praise the owners' commitment and dedication to offering such a first-class holiday cottage and experience enough.

The best of both worlds, the interior style is Farrow & Ball vintage farmhouse meets five star luxury boutique hotel. We were welcomed with several goodies and complimentary touches including a cream tea, Cornish fudge and coffee, a chilled bottle of Prosecco amongst other things. And we also loved the bathroom slippers, super fluffy towels and luxury handwash.

The garden is beautiful and expansive with a tranquil trickling stream at the bottom to relax by on the property's comfy sun loungers.

And the owners struck a perfect balance between being available if needed whilst leaving us alone in complete privacy the whole week. Bravo!

Oh yes, and of course Cornwall is super stunning. Lansallos Cove made me feel like I was back at a Greek cove. The water is turquoise on a calm and sunny day...

This is the first time I've left a review about a holiday cottage. I couldn't not! Thank you to the owners for their effort. They've hit the nail on its head!

One of the best cottages we have stayed in. Everything you need for a peaceful restful holiday. Just beautiful.

Good or bad, we publish all the reviews left by the guests who have stayed in this cottage, with the few exceptions stated in our Review Guidelines.
