Clean and comfortable cottage with lovely garden. The owners lived on site so on hand if you had a problem. We enjoyed our stay in Benson Cottage and found the owners very friendly. Would have been nice to have had internet connection but this was an excuse to go to the local pub and use their WIFI. We would recommend and would stay again

Very nice peaceful property with a lovely garden. And a good spot to explore those wonderful south coast Cornwall towns and villages.

A wonderful Cottage in a beautiful location.

Benson cottage was perfect for us, fab outside space for the kids to play frisbee and run around in. They loved seeing the cows in the field next to us and enjoyed the beaches close by, great location near Looe, Polruan and Fowey. The cottage itself was really cosy and worked well for us as a family. We had a lovely week away.

Attractive cottage in a peaceful environment. Good food at the Jubilee Inn in the village.

October 2016

A lovely, comfortable cottage with lots of character. Great for a quiet holiday but convenient for both south and north attractions including moors. Would definitely go again.

Bensons cottage is easily accessed, close to the village, yet feels isolated and peaceful, both the Cottage and the grounds are idyllic. The attention given to the comfort, and ease of living there makes it the perfect retreat. Well positioned for touring and visiting the beauty of South East And mid Cornwall. Thank you for a wonderful treasure

We have been twice to benson s cottage, it s always clean and welcoming. The locatin is very good and the peace and quite helps you to wind down, when life is so busy. We have used many cottages over the years , but we feel bensons is home from home and shall return on a regular basis as we really love this part of Cornwall.

August 2014

We stayed as a large group in Cardwen and Bensons Cottage during the first week of August 2014. The fact the cottages are side by side worked perfectly for us with the children flitting between the two at their leisure. The cottages are well furnished and equipped with a cosy 'home from home' feel. The gardens and grounds are beautiful, perfect for exploring and lots of space for the children to play. An idyllic Cornish holiday spot. Would highly recommend!

Benson's Cottage is just what you would expect from looking at the pictures. Cosy, comfortable and luxurious, set in the most amazing gardens. Cat and hens are wandering freely and it is just a short stroll to the village. Perfect in every respect for people who are looking for a quite holiday. The collectibles shop at Hendra Farm, "Beloved's", was an extra bonus. Wonderful things to see and buy, and extremely nice people who sell meat and vegetables from their farm. It is just a short stroll away but gives you the impression of having a wonderful farm holiday. Would recommend it to everybody!

Having the benefit of 2 or 3 properties close together allows a family to choose quiet time or full on celebrations.

August 2013

Benson's Cottage was beautiful and the surrounding gardens stunning. Close enough to nearby attractions but far enough away to have a peaceful relaxing holiday.

July 2013

This is an absolutely lovely cottage in a wonderful garden. The accomodation is quite small though, so you should not bring to much luggage!
