You cant fail to be impressed with Kear Cottage. Its traditional yet has all the modern amenities you need. A great property, large family kitchen/diner, cosy living room and good sized bedrooms and bathroom. The extra details like DAB radios in all the rooms, split dishwasher, night light on the landing, honesty bar and dog treats made it feel like we had just borrowed someone's home for the week, it smelled lovely too. A great outside space including large bbq and table and seating for all. We loved it. The only down side is that there is only one parking space on the property meaning any other cars are on the street, although very quiet there are tractors passing by on most days not causing noise but quite hairy when passing the vehicles on the roadside.

Kear Cottage was just what we were looking for for a peaceful retreat with our two retrievers. Everything was provided, the cottage was clean and immaculate, warm and cosy and felt like home from home. Even on one very wet day it was lovely to stay indoors and enjoy the lovely wood-burning stove. The fenced in garden gave us total peace of mind to let our dogs out at any time. We will not hesitate to re-book and recommend it to friends.

The most beautiful cottage with every attention to detail being thought of. Equipped to the highest standard. The little extras were well appreciated.

We absolutely loved our stay at Kear Cottage. One of our sons kept exclaiming "Love at first sight, love at first sight" as soon as we entered, and this is how we all felt throughout our stay. We were immediately taken in by the combination of style and coziness of the place, and altogether by the personal touch and attention to every detail. The fact that the owners obviously use this as their own holiday cottage - meaning that the house contains everything from jigsaws to bodyboards - makes Kear Cottage both very handy and gives it a very personal feel. The cottage is well placed for a number of attractions and activities: The beaches in and around Polzeath, Tintagel Castle, Bodmin Moor, Lanhydrock Castle or the Camel Trail and Camel Valley Vineyard are all within short reach. We'd come again any time. Thank you!

This cottage really does have everything. A blissful place to hang out - yet within easy reach of fabulous beaches, stunning walks, the Camel Trail and great pubs & restaurants. Every little detail has been considered - comfy beds, lovely bed linen, fabulously equipped kitchen, great garden - not just biscuits on arrival, but even a tin of dog biscuits! All a recipe for a fantastic holiday. We loved it and would definitely return.

From the moment we entered Kear Cottage we felt completely at home. The amount and quality of equipment is excellent and there was nothing that hadn't been thought of. Sumptuous bed linen and super comfy beds (even the dog had a comfy bed) Such lovely unexpected personal touches made our stay feel extra special. We did not expect a shed full of beach equipment including wind breaks, beach mat, buckets and spades etc - so very thoughtful. Kear Cottage would be my first choice of stay when I return to Cornwall without a doubt.

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.
