The whole experience was first class from the location which was surprisingly good. Near so many facilities. The cottage and equipment was faultless. One minor irritant was the directions when you haven't got a satnav.Don't eat at Zizzi in Falmouth terrible food and service. Would return again

Cottage was fantastic very clean and well equiped. We had our daughter,son inlaw and 6month old grandson with us and everyone had a great time. When you have such a comfortable base everything about the holiday becomes so much better. We will be back

The cottage is spacious and forms a couryard of other cottages varying in size. The location is quiet and peaceful. The cottage is clean and on the whole very good but a few small improvements could make a real difference. The blind on the front door was broken and did not pull down, the TV was wall mounted but not easily watchable from all areas of the lounge seating. For those who cook in the cottage the utensils were barely adequate - the knives in the block were blunt and need replacing or sharpening and more saucepans would be nice.

My wife and I stayed at Karensa with our daughter, her partner, and their baby. The apartment was faultless, the baby was angelic, we felt very lucky. Although I'm disabled, there were no problems with our (downstairs) bedroom, and the others slept upstairs. My wife swam in the pool every day and lost three pounds so she was delighted! I hope we may come back soon.
"Excellent facilities and location with clean well appointed acco"

We booked three cottages, Karensa, Trelawany and Newlyn for a group of 20 people over the New Year period. The accommodation was spotlessly clean and finished to a really high standard with all mod cons.There is a lovely pool area(obviously closed in December)with a Jacuzzi and Sauna which we thoughly enjoyed using.There was a games room with table tennis and pool and a vast array of Dvds to borrow during your stay.We had a problem with one of the showers when we arrived but after making one phone call the problem was sorted within half an hour. You can't ask for better service than that. We had a great time and would certainly recommend staying at Tresooth cottages. We will definitely be returning.
