Welcome very friendly but not fussy.
Great biscuits and things to make a much needed cuppa.
The cottage was different in a real country style. It was warm, lots of space and very comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped- important as we like to cook a relaxed evening meal. Outside the garden was a delight- lots of birds and friendly rabbits. Having it's own station halt on the rail wayline to Looe very convienient.15

The service received was first class the welcome from the owners was second to none and the cottage was very well furnished and comfortable. I would vote this cottage 100% perfect. The location was very central to most areas of Cornwall and could not be faulted in any way. One of the best features of this was it closeness to wonderful walks especially with dogs etc. The owners were very friendly and they treated our dog as if it was their own. There are no faults to be found excellent!

The Retreat was a lovely place to stay it had all the home comforts to come back to after a great day exploring this fantastic County. It is ideally placed having a local rail line on its doorstep for you to visit Cornwall's many places without having to take the car for that total chill out day. Both ann and Colin the proprietors of this Cottage were very friendly without being obtrusive and made us both feel very welcome on our first ever trip to the South West.
A cottage which is complete in all ways,with great surroundings

Pip and anne could not have been more helpful to us and the treats in the fridge for us on arrival were much appreciated. This was our very first trip to Cornwall and we absolutely loved everything about the whole fortnight. Getting the place cleaned and linen changed after week 1 was also a lovely touch and we were made to feel very special guests.
A lovely cottage. Well furnished and had all the equipment we needed. We were made very welcome by the owner who left wine, milk, tea, coffee and milk in the kitchen.
Initially the property seemed a bit isolated but we soon found our way about. We would certainly stay at this property again.

WE were made to feel very welcome. There were so many beautiful walks and places to see in the vicinity. Very comfortable and delightfully furnished accommodation with every amenity we needed. We and our dog enjoyed the enclosed garden too. we were able to sit outside in the sun which was an added bonus in March! Highly recommended.

We were met with warmth, and hospitality which was quite outstanding. extremely nice family that not only made us most welcome but also our westie who was a puppy at the time. A box of choccies were put out for me also as it was my birthday the day we arrived. great place also for visiting surrounding area and a little train service into Looe a few yards away from the cottage. the musical museum was most interesting which is on site also.

The cottage was everything that the brochure promised, a very tranquil setting, and a well equiped cottage.
We had a very warm welcom from the owners, which included tea, coffee, milk, a very welcome bottle of wine after the long drive and a box of biscuits for our dog.
Although we went at the end of September we had some really good weather and we were able to utalise the bbq on the patio to teke in those last rays and enjoy the peace and quiet.
The cottage is ideally situated for exploring the surrounding area.
There is nothing that the owners haven't thought about to make your stay an enjoyable, from the goodies, bbq equipment, bowls for the dog, its a real home from home and was sorry when the holiday ended.Would highly recommend this cottage to anyone.
