This is one of the best holiday homes we have stayed in. The house is spacious, light and modern and is in a lovely setting with great views. The aga proved a bit of a challenge but it kept the house warm and cosy. We loved being able to walk to Tremenheere Gardens and to the cafe there. This house would make a great place to stay out of season with the aga and the wood burning stove.

Beautiful cottage in stunning location, fantastic views to St Michael's Mount, lots of space both inside and outside. Everything very new, clean and modern; beds very comfortable. Kitchen and furnishings all finished to a very high standard and a very friendly dog who kept popping over to say hello.
However we did have a few niggles, probably mostly to do with it being so new. The cottage lacked equipment, most notably there were only 4 dining chairs even though we booked for 5 people. There was a lack of cutlery, no kitchen bin, nowhere to hang your coats downstairs, a lack of hanging space for bedrooms 2 & 3 upstairs, no broom, no hair dryer and no books, games, DVDs or entertainment which although fine for us may be an issue if you have children. It would also have been helpful to have information on recycling. There is also no wi-fi which we should have checked before we booked.
When we arrived at 5pm the beds were not made up so we contacted the house keeper who informed us that she couldn't get hold of the owner to get the keys to the linen cupboard. We had to wait until about 7pm when the owner returned to get the linen and make the beds up ourselves. In fairness both the house keeper and owner offered to come over and make up the beds but by then we did not want the intrusion.
The Aga was lovely however some quick easy instructions would have been very helpful especially on the first night after a long drive in torrential rain when everyone was hungry and we had to read through a large book of instructions before we could cook anything.
Overall we really loved Tolver Springs and once we had mastered the Aga we felt very at home and would definitely want to return.
