This was our first visit to beautiful Cornwall.
Our stay at the cottage was lovely. Ruth our host was very welcoming and really made us feel at home. She very kindly loaned me her heat pad to help my sore back. The cottage was very cosy and quiet. I slept through every night as the bed was so comfortable and the linen of good quality. I would return to this cottage if we were to return to this area in the future and I would certainly recommend to friends. In a great location for visiting the surrounding area. Lanivet is a lovely wee village ...

Excellent location close to locations in the north and south ie Padstow, Falmouth etc. The cottage is located in a lovely village with an excellent pub, fish and chip shop and local supermarket. The cottage was absolutely spotless with everything you could use plus more. Our stay was whilst Cornwall experienced snow this highlighted how cosy and warm the cottage is. Would highly recommend on our return home we have booked for next year.

A lovely location and a beautiful cottage. This was our second visit and will definitely not be our last. The cottage is comfortable and has everything you could possibly need. Ruth, the owner is amazing. The welcome goodies are great.

Great accommodation
Great well equipped clean & comfy accommodation 5 mins from the A30 so excellent road links to the rest of cornwall. Lovely dog friendly pub (recommend booking), fish & chips restaurant/takeaway, Spar, field & play area all close by. Camel trail 5 mins away. Highly recommend & excellent value for money. Note ..my only criticisms are the lawn was quite long which is a nuisance when poo picking after my dog and the glasses were so delicate .. we broke 2 just closing the dishwasher!!

Excellent stay
Firstly, this cottage was probably the cleanest, most organised accommodation I have ever stayed in, EVER! You enter via a shared pathway, owner lives in cottage to left. This cottage is very compact but is kept to the highest standards I've seen. Everything is spotless, just spotless. Everything is full working order and you can see a lot of pride goes into keeping the cottage that way for guests. I could not fault anything even if I wanted to. Location wise it's slightly out the way, but not that far to not be able to get about. Not much in Lanivet apart from a small Spar, a pub, a newsagents and a couple od other shops. Nice little village though. Owner will supply you with fuel for fire all week and you can settle with her once your stay is over. Very warm and cozy cottage too. Be nice if there could have been two small sofas instead of a sofa and a chair but not a big issue. Layout is great with Bathroom downstairs behind kitchen. We enjoyed our week here very much. How people said they can smell pets is beyond me, I've never been anywhere so clean in my life. Great cottage. Don't pass this up. Frankly it's a bargain!
