This is a lovely cottage, very peaceful. the owners were friendly, welcoming and very attentive.

Fabulous holiday thanks to the wonderful base provided at this property and attentive hosts. Everything we needed in the Buzzards Rise & more! Great location to explore this part of Cornwall.

Gorgeous little cottage nestled in the middle of West Cornwall. Has everything you need. Beautiful walks nearby. Beaches a drive away. Wonderful hosts who look after you. Nice bottle of Prosecco and chocolates on arrival. Thankyou for a lovely stay.

A cosy little barn conversion. Making the most of the space it offers. It is in easy reach of nearby towns, beaches and places of interest. At least four nearby pubs for evening meals. Would recommend the The Stag Hunt as Carmen is an excellent chef. Very friendly, helpful hosts.

Book with classic !!

The hosts Gerry and Shirley were welcoming and helpful. Buzzards rise is perfect for a couple and so peaceful. Little touches like milk, chocolates, bottle of wine, fresh flowers were perfect unexpected extras. Would totally recommend.

This excellent holiday cottage is in very peaceful surroundings , with superb hosts.

Shirley and Gerry absolutely fantastic hosts , warm friendly and welcoming , always very helpful throughout our stay The perfect quiet setting to relax in and explore from Thank you both for a lovely week Lindsey and Colin

Lovely week spent here, it was just a shame the weather wasn’t great

Very knowledgeable host's of where to go and not to go. Shirley and Gerry were on hand if you needed them but didn't encroach on your time and space during your holiday. The prosecco and chocolates where a lovely touch and Monty was very happy with his dog treats Will definitely go back sometime.

Lovely warm bathroom and excellent shower. Friendly but discreet owners. Peaceful location. Comfortable bed. Good location for reaching both coasts once you get beyond the narrow lanes Nice local walks. Friendly locals. We had a wonderful week visiting Spring gardens and walking the coastpaths and countryside. Roads quiet at this time.

The cottage is comfortable for 2 people and has all you need . It a good value for money. Shirley and Gerry were very kind and generous We totally enjoyed our stayed at Buzzards Rise

Super clean no worries about Covid. Well supplied with sanitizing items eg tissues and gel. Wonderful welcome with Prosecco, milk, biscuits and a box of chocolates. The biscuits were even individually wrapped. We had a very relaxing stay.

Highly recommend it

Lovely property in a very quiet location that felt completely safe and very distanced from everyone but within a short drive of all the quiet coves etc that we like to visit. There was nothing we would have changed.

Fantastic stay in such a beautiful and peaceful location Could not fault the accommodation a charming conversion with everything we needed including treats for our dog!.Ideal base for day trips around Cornwall. A very big thank you to Shirley and Gerry for the milk,Prosecco and chocolates and for being such friendly hosts! Hope to be back one day Thanks Mike,Julie and Tyler

Really pleasant stay. Hosts helpful yet unobtrusive. Immaculately clean which was appreciated for our first Covid holiday. Very well equiped kitchen. A little hard to find first time down some typically narrow Cornwall country roads - location very rural and not close to anywhere but was central to both coasts and all regional highlights within 45 mins.

A cosy barn conversion that is set in a quiet and peaceful location. I would recommend a visit to the Golden Lion pub nearby. If you want to explore further you do need to be prepared to drive most days.

Delightful cottage with extremely helpful and friendly owners Location made all parts of Cornwall easily accessible Welcome gifts of Prossecco and mint chocs along with a pint of milk in the fridge were a lovely touch !!

We had a fantastic stay and will definitely be returning. Gerry and Shirley were excellent hosts and made us feel very welcome.

Perfect, peaceful place for a relaxing holiday. The owners are friendly and attentive...nothing is too much trouble. A big thank you to Gerry for helping replace my damaged car fact he did most of the work! Definitely recommend.

A very pleasant stay in this lovely cottage. The owners Shirley and Gerry were very welcoming, but also respected your privacy. Comfy bed slept very well each night, peaceful location.

The cottage and locality superb, weather permitting the Area is full of public foot paths to explore. Within easy access to a lot of sights and towns on foot, public transport and car. Shirley and Gerry very welcoming and will assist in any way possible, for rainy days the Netflix was great and not to forget the change of towels half way through the week. Stayed for two weeks and enjoyed every minute.

Shirley & Gerry are excellent hosts we felt at home the moment we arrived, the barn is well equipped with everything you need & it's warm & cozy . It's in a lovely position with wildlife all around we had a pheasant visit most mornings & it's lovely to watch lots of different kinds of birds . Excellent holiday we will go again .

buzzards rise is the ideal location for a peaceful relaxing break. at the same time its within short distances from main coastal towns and attractions. the owners shirley and gerry are lovely and most helpful and i would recommend this cottage breaK TO EVERYBODY

Excellent in all aspects. We had a wonderful week at Buzzard's Rise. The delightful property was set in a tranquil location with views over fields and conveniently located for visiting Falmouth and areas to the south, west and north. The property was perfectly clean, bright and comfortable. Every night we had a good night's sleep even though we were there during very hot weather. The owners, Shirley and Gerry, had thought through everything that a couple would require for a stay there including leaving fresh fruit, milk, tea, coffee and sugar and a bottle of Prosseco. They were a lovely, friendly couple, keen to ensure our stay was comfortable. We rarely return to the same accommodation twice but Buzzard's Rise is probably going to be the exception - we loved it'.

We absolutely loved our week at Buzzards rise. Shirley and Gerry are so welcoming and friendly, they made us feel we were family and we cannot recommend them more highly.Thankyou both for such an amazing welcome.we visited Stithians reservoir,St.Ives,Trebah gardens, Padstow and Truro, all of which were within easy access.The cottage is immaculate and romantic and we loved the tranquil countryside.

very comfortable cottage in quiet peaceful location, lovely walks around. close to facilities including excellent eating at local pubs and convenience store in village nearby. very helpful and friendly owners

Buzzards Rise is an absolute gem! Located in a quiet and relaxing area of Cornwall with ease of access to both coasts and attractions. Hosts Shirley and Jerry are so friendly and helpful and the welcome package is as good as it gets. Don’t let this one pass you by Julie & Michael Staffs
