Mrs Barnfield February 2020
We really enjoyed our stay in a beautiful house with stunning views. Even during a wet week we were really cosy inside. There are so many walks you can do from the property in the local fields or down to the beach. Easy to reach supermarkets and pubs. In the summer I imagine this to be a really idyllic spot. We will come again.

We had the most relaxing break at Tolver Spring. The house is very peaceful, warm and comfortable, with plenty of room. Will definitely be looking to return at some point.

The arrival info could do with altering as there was no key under a stone, and no stone. We called the housekeeper who instructed us how to enter the property in the end. I have absolutely no complaints about the standard of decoration or type and quality of furniture provided but it’s worth mentioning that furniture upstairs is a little sparse. We used the main largest bedroom but there was no chest of drawers in the room so had to store folded clothes and underwear in a different bedroom which did have a chest of drawers. It’s also worth noting that the large bi-folding doors downstairs were locked on arrival and no key supplied until 2days later. Also, the owner mentioned he had garden furniture which he hadn’t left out for use on the day before we left. All small points but they would have made a difference. Despite this we loved our stay and would book this place again.

Thanks for letting us know about the key - we've now updated the Arrival Details to reflect this change but we're really pleased the housekeeper was able to help you. We're sorry that the key for the bi-fold doors was missing on your arrival and we'll make sure that it's there in future. Thanks also for your storage suggestions which we'll certainly forward to the owners for their thoughts. Bryony, Customer Support
Update Feb 2020 Two new storage units have been ordered to complement the wardrobe in the master bedroom.

This is a fantastic cottage, it is a great size and furnished to a high standard, the view over to St Michael's Mount is amazing. We stayed over New Year and the cottage was really warm, we did not use the aga but it heated the kitchen really well, the log burner was perfect and logs were provided which was really appreciated.
The only thing that we feel the cottage needs is some more furniture in the master bedroom, it is a huge room with a lovely big comfortable bed but there isn't a chest of drawers and it needs one, also a few hooks for hanging dressing gowns on.
Overall we had a great holiday and would love to return in the summer, when we could hopefully get some sunshine and sit and watch the sun go down over St Michael's Mount.

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.
