This detached cottage on the outskirts of Famouth sleeps six people in three bedrooms.

Oaklea is a detached dorma bungalow situated on the outskirts of Famouth in Cornwall. This cottage sleeps sleeps six people and is set all at ground floor level, apart from a first floor double. The cottage also has a double and twin bedroom, a bathroom, a kitchen, a dining room and a sitting room with gas fire.

Outside there is off road parking for two cars and an enclosed lawned garden with patio and furniture. Oaklea is an ideal base for families with a beach within walking distance, and so many other family-friendly attractions in the area.


Shabby and unkempt
Underwhelming, shabby and completely unsuitable for families is the nicest comment I can make. The list of faults with this property is long; broken bed, shelf falling off, loose radiator cover, peeling sealant, shower hose split, sink doesn't drain, radiator loose, chairs absolutely filthy, poor cleaning standards, rickety wardrobes, bedroom drawers unopenable (possibly due to damp?), no light on stairs, bare wires, lack of working provisions, cupboard/outbuilding & garage contents unsafe for children, damp smell. Lack of care and attention. The property photos are very selective.

Little extras
Always a struggle to find dog friendly. This one so dog friendly he even had his own doggy bean bags to sleep on. Extra keys provided so didn't have to worry about being out at different times. And really nifty way of collecting keys. Didn't have to worry about arrival time at all. On arrival found cookies, tea bags, sugar, coffee, wine, and even milk in the fridge. So welcome after a long drive. Smaller than we thought it would be but perfectly adequate for 3 adults and a dog. Garden was actually bigger than it looked on photos. Jill, the owner, is aware of the low fence at the back and blocked it off when mentioned. By low I mean about 4 foot. You'd have to have a loon of a dog like ours to try it. Fluffy, proper size towels. Comfy beds. And well equipped kitchen. Thank you Jill.

Great accommodation with a warm homely feel, in an ideal location, with a friendly, welcoming, helpful owner and pleasant neighbours.

It was a beautiful well presented cottage and the owner was lovely, it felt just like home. Was in a quiet area not far from the beaches, perfect.
Mrs Eggleton

A lovely cosy cottage with all comforts, we would love to return. The owner was very friendly and helpful.
