2/10 Poor

We were really disappointed with the property, as it did not look the way it did in photos. We had to leave as we felt uncomfortable.

Charming step back in time!
We had two lovely nights in the Welsh Cottage. The cottage is full of character and the attention to detail by the owners added to the pleasure and comfort of our stay. The welcome gifts and breakfast basket were much appreciated! The cottages are situated in their own little oasis hidden away in the city surrounded by lush lawns and beautiful flower-filled gardens.

8/10 Very good

Welcome get away
Fun getaway, a little confusing checking in but we were pleasantly surprised with the thoughtfulness of the little extras. The wood fire was hard to light and the heat pump was not enough for Launceston in winter. The electric blankets were so welcome. We walked to the nearest pub for dinner and enjoyed the supplied breakfast.
Bedroom was amazing set up
As a large tent.
Bedroom very comfortable
Breakfast very generous.

10/10 Exceptional

We stayed in the Scottish cottage and it had oodles of character. So many additional touches and support for local businesses which was wonderful to see. The breakfast 'basket' was huge! One of the best nights sleep I've had in ages and sitting reading in the sun baked patio was beautiful.

What an amazing place I was nervous about contactless check in but it was very easy Keep in mind this is an old cottage, the comfort is not like in modern style. However it was very clean, warm and loved the welcome drink in fridge as well as beautiful breakfast hamper. Would highly recommend to any couple with a historic interest
