“Excellent self catering property”
Reviewed April 13, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We loved our 4 day stay in Mawnan Smith. The property had everything we needed and more. It was comfortable, cosy and well equipped. We liked the little extras that were available to us that make all the difference to the holiday self catering experience so thank you!

“A fantastic home from home - in fact, it was BETTER than our house.”
Reviewed April 8, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

The annexe was absolutely beautiful; spotlessly clean, exquisitely decorated with huge attention to detail and wonderfully equipped - in fact, we only discovered the fully stocked games cupboard as we were checking out. It was an ideal base for our first foray into Cornwall and we were really quite sad when we had to leave it. We will DEFINITELY be back again. Not only that but it is only a couple of minutes' romantic stroll from a beautiful church full of friendly folk AND a lovely pub with a smashing atmosphere and great food

“Clean, well presented and had everything we needed. WOULD DEFINITELY RECOMMEND!”
Reviewed March 18, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

The Annex was much larger then we expected, having a separate bathroom, bedroom, sitting room and kitchen/dinning room. It had everything you could think of from cutlery to slow cookers, large fridge/freezer, iron, washer/dryer, even a trouser press. You name it, it had it.

It was spotlessly clean and well presented, the bed and sofas were comfortable and it was in a lovely area.

Steve the owner popped around on the morning of our first stay, and was very pleasant and informative.

We will definitely go back.

“Excellent accommodation in this lovely village.”
Reviewed October 14, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We were delighted with this accommodation for us and our dog. A friendly welcome from owner and absolutely everything you could need. Very comfortable warm and cosy, nicely decorated and spacious. A safe outside courtyard for the dog and parking on the road outside. Quick walk to all village amenities including good pub and restaurant.
We would highly recommend this property and hope to return.
Many thanks.

“A brilliant holiday cottage”
Reviewed October 6, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

I rented this holiday cottage for a short midweek stay in September. The cottage is really nice, well fitted out and absolutely spotless. It is in a lovely village just outside Falmouth and very close to the river ( a 15- 20 min walk). The village has a great pub and an Italian restaurant within 150 yards of the cottage for those who do not want to cook and not want to drink and drive! The location is ideal for exploring all of Cornwall as it is so central. I will definitely use this agin.
