Everything about this getaway is beautiful. A perfect peaceful place that really gives you comfort and the opportunity to take a breath and relax. Could not recommend more, also, super comfy bed!

Beautiful property off the beaten track. Has everything you need for a short break and a lovely comfortable bed! We used it as a base to explore Cornwall and had a great time. The outdoor bath was fab! Don't let the idea of a compost toilet put you off, it really isn't bad!

If you’re looking to get away from everything is perfect

If you want to switch off from the daily grind and immerse yourself back in nature, whilst doing this in style and comfort, then this is the place for you. Birds, bees, butterflies, damselflies, outdoor fires and BBQs and even an outdoor bath under the stars. Truly magical.

My wife and I spent our 15 year wedding anniversary at the Bird Box. Secluded and private, but footsteps away from where you parked. BirdBox was clean and comfy and cosy. The outdoor bath was amazing. Unfortunately we weren't lucky with the weather, so wasn't able to make full use of all the outdoorsy extras, for our whole stay. But the BirdBox itself is comfy and cozy. The lack of a TV and wifi was a welcome treat. We stayed in bed, relaxed and just enjoyed each others company. Ed was friendly and helpful, but we were left completely alone. We highly recommend the BirdBox and we're hoping to get back one day soon.

Perfect for a romantic getaway. You can sit with a wine by the firepit and stargaze from the outdoor bathtub. Little touches like bathrobes make it feel that bit more special. The setting is absolutely stunning and waking up to incredible views at sunrise topped off the experience.

The Bird Box is magical, we recommend it to everyone and definitely plan to go back. The attention to detail, the location, the linens, and the furniture, were all excellent. Ideal place to disconnect and enjoy the outdoors. Our dog absolutely loved it too.

Really amazing property and area. Friendly approachable hosts and very keen to help and ensure all is OK. Super place. Tranquil, beautiful bird song, starry sky's and outdoor bath. Everything so lovely.

How lovely to listen to bird song in this tranquil spot and to use an outdoor bath under a starry sky. We would love to welcome you back soon. Sarah R, Customer Support

Such a fantastic place to stay in a great location. The attention to detail makes it a perfect stay with all you could need on your holiday. Its a credit to the owners. Our dog absolutely loved the garden. We will definitely visit again.

We had the most amazing 4 days at the Bird Box despite it being extremely cold (-10 when we left for our break!) the cabin is cosy and warm with the log burner and the bed was so comfortable! We are used to camping so this was a little bit of luxury for us. We especially loved star gazing in the outdoor bath. We will definitely be returning hopefully in the summer when the weather will be a little warmer!

How wonderful to hear about your magical stay at The Bird Box. Incredible that you felt cosy even in such extreme temperatures and the outdoor starlit bath sounds absolutely amazing! We're looking forward to welcoming you back in the summer. Julie, Customer Support

Everything about our holiday from booking through to the stay was amazing and efficient. Can't wait to try more places in the future.

Amazing location! Check out inkies bbq nearby for some awesome grub.

The Bird Box is beautifully designed, comfortable and has everything you need, plus extras like robes and dog treats. The garden is bigger than expected and very peaceful and private. The highlight of our stay was star gazing in the amazing outdoor bath! We would definitely recommend.

The Bird Box is a stunning private hideaway! We loved our stay and would highly recommend. Star gazing in the night around the fire is a must!

The Bird Box is absolutely wonderful. The bed is sumptuously comfortable and from it you can watch the stars or listen to the birds in the early hours. It is perfectly well equipped and has useful touches like an OS map of the area. We would certainly stay again

The Bird Box is a beautiful place, very secluded. I loved every minute. The cabin is small but there’s everything you need, including a small wood burner in case it gets cold. The separate bathroom cabin is fine, and the outside bath a great idea. The garden is surprisingly large and there are lots of walks and countryside to explore around it too. The hosts are very friendly but not intrusive.

Where to even start! The Bird Box is completely magical - we fell in love with this incredible hideaway straight away from the outdoor bath tub to the fire pit and all the beautifully modern decor and little touches (dog treats, robes and Prosecco in the fridge on arrival!) Our Labrador loved the never-ending garden as much as we did and we felt so relaxed and comfortable here. Watching the stars at night, toasting marshmallows on the fire pit and drinking wine whilst in the outdoor tub were all highlights for us that made this private space so special. The owners are lovely and we loved exploring the local area, from Golitha Falls to walking across Bodmin Moors to the local pub for dinner. It is also a great base for exploring the coast (we enjoyed visiting Talland Bay, Polperro and Palace Cove). We cannot wait to return here!

Really enjoyed our stay at the Bird Box. An absolute hidden gem with the most amazing garden. (Our dog loved exploring). We spent hours in the lovely deep outdoor bath and really enjoyed sitting around the fire pit watching for shooting stars! (There is no light pollution here). The styling/furnishings and accessories in the Bird Box were of a high quality and we had everything that we needed during our stay. We would highly recommend this property and we can’t wait to come back!

Had a fantastic weekend staying at the Bird Box. Ed and Nema were wonderful hosts and made us feel so welcome (including a few little extras for our dog). Such a beautiful setting tucked away with a lovely little outdoor space to use. Such a well designed little cabin with everything you would need. Would definitely stay here again!

An absolutely lovely place in beautiful surroundings! The outside bath was amazing.

The bird box is the ideal spot for a quiet getaway. The property it’s self exceeded our expectations and everything was perfect. The host was lovely and welcoming, the hut was clean and gorgeously presented. Crocs and dressing gowns were provided which was a lovely touch and all the amenities that you’d require were also provided. Overall we had an amazing stay and I couldn’t recommend staying here enough.
