Beautiful, Cosy Cottage - Perfect Base from which to Explore Cornwall
This was our third visit in three consecutive years. We love the area and Horseshoe Cottage is a beautiful cottage that is full of character and cosiness. It has everything you need for a comfortable stay and the owners go the extra mile to make you feel welcome, including a welcome hamper of goodies in the kitchen and a starter pack of logs for the fire. It is the perfect base from which to explore Cornwall and has the added bonus of a great pub at the top of the road that does great food and drink at reasonable prices. We would recommend Horseshoe in a heartbeat, hence we have been three times and are already thinking of when we can book for next year. This year we took friends and they loved it too.

Highly recommend Horseshoe Cottage
We have just spent a lovely week in Horseshoe Cottage, it's a real gem. Debbie and Russell the owners leave a lovely welcome hamper of homemade cake, locally produced bacon and eggs, butter milk and bread, they are on hand should you need them. The cottage has a log fire and log burner (We didn't need to light the log burner) and is very warm and cosy, the kitchen is fully equipped including a dishwasher and washing machine and is wonderfully spacious, I certainly had kitchen envy. The lounge area is very comfortable with 2 sofas and a television, dvd player and games console, at the end of the lounge is a dining area. Upstairs ( the stairs are steep but you get use to them ) are 2 beautifully decorated bedrooms, 1 double and 2 singles, a bathroom with the most amazing shower in the world with fluffy towels and a heated towel rail. The cottage is situated in Deladole a busy working community with 2 pubs and a local spar, the Quarry is about 200 yds from the cottage and we parked in the free car park without any problems, nearby is Tintagel, Boscastle and Port Isaac where Doc Martin is filmed. We had a wonderful week staying at Horseshore Cottage and highly recommend it.

Another Lovely Week at Horseshoe Cottage
After spending a week in 2015, we were excited to book again in Dec 2016. The cottage is beautiful, full of character and with everything you need. It's very comfortable and cosy and with a warm welcome, especially with the welcome pack of yummy homemade cake, milk, eggs, bacon, milk, cereal, tea and coffee. The cottage is a great base to visit North Cornwall towns such as Padstow, Rock, Port Isaac, Tintagel and Boscastle, which are all within easy reach. We'd definitely recommend booking Horseshoe Cottage and can't wait to go back.

"Amazing cottage would be delighted to live there permanently" The cottage was beautiful, clean and well presented. Debbie and Russell the owners had gone way beyond what you would expect of a fine hotel with a lovely welcome hamper on arrival too. The cottage is set in a lovely village location and so peaceful. Can't recommend this place enough it's just perfect. Looking forward to our return.
