Located in a sublime rural setting, Dairy Cottage is an attractive barn conversion one mile from the pretty hamlet of Mabe. Dairy Cottage is part of a small number of similar holiday properties adjacent to the owner’s home, and offers cosy accommodation all on the ground floor. This includes two bedrooms, a modern kitchen and living area with a breakfast bar, and a private patio with garden furniture for relaxing in after a day’s sightseeing. The cottage has been decorated and furnished to a superb standard, and is in a great location for discovering the south coast of Cornwall, and the rugged coastline towards Land's End. Take a... boat trip, bask on a beach, lunch al fresco by the river (foodies could do worse than head to St Mawes for lunch at Hotel Tresanton) or stroll through the countryside – it’s all within reach.
Amenities: Oil central heating. Electric cooker, larder fridge, microwave, washing machine, TV with Freeview, DVD, CD player. All fuel and power inc. in rent. Bed linen inc. in rent. Off road parking for one car. Enclosed patio area with garden furniture. Sorry, no pets. Shop and pub 1 mile.
Region: Cornwall’s visitors are constantly tempted back to the beautiful coastline, tiny fishing villages, hidden coves and the world-class surfing. Whatever the reason, Cornwall has long cemented its place as one of Britain’s premier holiday destinations.
Town: Mabe itself is only a hop, skip and a jump from Falmouth, one of the largest towns on the Southern tip of Cornwall and home to the National Maritime Museum. Falmouth itself owes its long tradition of fishing and boating to its location on the third largest natural harbour in the world. It’s a buzzing town with plenty of restaurants, cafés and shops to keep you busy if you get restless with the idyll of your rural accommodation. Take the passenger ferry to St Mawes and the Roseland Peninsula if you want to spread your wings further and you might even spot a basking shark or two at the right time of year.

My wife and I stayed at Dairy Cottage in Mabe for a few days in January 2010. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would certainly use the cottage again whenever we stay in that part of the world.
It was warm and cosy and well equiped, and kept nicely clean by the owner. The later was very friendly and helpful. Easy parking is available right outside the cottage.
My only concern is that the lounge area is rather small: fine for two, probably OK for three --- but I am glad there weren't four of us (and there are two double bedrooms.)
But for two (or three) people wanting a nice little place in a lovely area, at very reasonable rates --- 'just the job'.

Excellent, friendly and very approachable.
The cottage was clean and comfortable with all equipment neccassary for our stay.
The location was very rural and quite away from the hustle and busly of the seaside towns a perfect retreat. Yet within easy reach of the towns and vistor attractions.
The location of the cottage and the quaint villages, nothing to dislike.
