Not suitable for dogs, shared garden
This property does not say that the courtyard garden is actually shared with other properties so people are coming and going and when we were there leaving the gate open. Cottage is shabby especially on the outside and it?s setting is amongst even worse run down farm buildings. Thankfully only there for a weekend. Asked Sykes who we booked through to change listing to shared Garden but they would not, neither would they publish my review as it was negative!

A real "Escape to the country"!
Very comfortable and clean barn conversion in a rural location. Perfect for making trips tot the coast, villages and well known English gardens (Heligan - Eden Project). Sarah, the owner, was very kind and helpful. Unfortunately we didn't use the very inviting garden, due to the weather. When we stayed at Poldark Cottage there were building activities in the other side of the courtyard, but this gave no inconvenience.
A TripAdvisor Member

We wanted a complete 'away from it all' type of accommodation and Poldark fulfilled this. It was perfect for ourselves and our dog. The owners were the perfect hosts, there if we needed them but unobtrusive. Thank you to your staff who were so helpful when we were booking with just 24 hours notice.

Poldark Cottage
A lovely cottage tucked away from it all with lots of character and space. The beds were so comfortable that we all got the best sleep we have had in ages. The shower was really powerful and there was lots of hot water. Wifi was slow at times and we could not get any mobile signal so perfect for a holiday away from it all! Location was great ... we could reach most of South Cornwall quickly and easily! If you have a dog, it is worth doing some research as to which beaches are dog friendly during the summer months ... we found some lovely beaches but it did take some looking!!! Would happily return to this cottage and would recommend!

A lovely cottage and very comfortable. An excellent location for exploring Cornwall. Highly recommended.
