Well equipped - mobility may be an issue
A very well equipped cottage. Nice location but tricky parking as not accessible for anyone with mobility challenges.

Gorgeous Dog Friendly Thatched House
Beautiful thatched cottage in the heart of a lovely friendly village. Dog friendly with gorgeous walks and lovely large garden. Fantastic open kitchen with entertaining space and aga. Cosy living room with log burner. Friendly, helpful owner who was extremely accommodating. Friendly local pub serving great food and very reasonably priced. 2 large double bedrooms and cosy twin room. Toilet upstairs and lovely bathroom downstairs.

Immaculate spacious cottage ideally situated for visiting the Island
this property really did exceed our already high expectations from the photos! Every possible need is met from the welcome pack including basket of logs and firelighters to the Aga all ready to use as we walked in. This must be the only rental I have taken which includes a full set of professional sharpened knives to satisfy the most demanding of cooks! Beautifully furnished with top quality bedding and wonderful beds. The owner provides a house information pack with instructions for all the appliances and visitor recommendations. Camborne is a picturesque tranquil village and there are views from all the bedrooms. A delightful home from home and I would not hesitate to recommend. Definite 5* plus

Beyond words
We've just returned from our 5th stay at this beautiful, cosy, homely cottage. It really feels like a home from home (from our first ever visit) and as lovely as the photos are, it's even better in reality. In the quiet village of Calbourne, Grants Cottage is beautiful on the the outside, and stunning on the inside. In all our stays, not once have we ever felt that anything was missing: every convenience, appliance, utensil and little luxurious addition we've ever needed have been there, topped off with a lovely welcome pack each time too. The lounge with it's log burner is a haven in the evenings, and the main kitchen /dining room is large, with an AGA (and conventional oven too) , beautifully decorated with intricate attention to detail that we appreciate more and more with each trip. The ridiculously comfy sofa placed next to the AGA is worth fighting for a space on, whilst looking out onto the lane with the occasional horses clip-clopping by. I can't express how relaxing this cottage is, it's like a weight is lifted each time we arrive. Carrying on with the ridiculously comfy theme, the super-king size beds in 2 of the 3 upstairs bedrooms are like sleeping on a cloud, with lovely 'better than hotel' white linens. The smaller 3rd bedroom with it's 2 singles is still characterful, warm and comfy and our 5 year old sleeps like a baby in them. We've always been in the colder months so have never made proper use of the rear garden, but it's large for a cottage, with numerous seating areas, little nooks and crannies, and I'd imagine in the summer it's a wonderful place to be. I really can't rate this place highly enough and if I could give it 10 stars I would.

Best in class !
Have stayed in many UK cottages and this one sets the bar very high for future holidays. The owner has taken great care to make Grants Cottage a lovely holiday let. Soft comfortable furnishing with a real cottage feel is backed up by modern, quality appliances and kitchen units. But it's the touches that make it really special. Quality toiletries in the 2 bathrooms fragrance sticks in perfumed oils, welcome message on the blackboard and a fab welcome pack with cake, scones and milk etc. just a few of many things that delighted us. the whole place was spotlessly clean and well decorated. Games, books sound systems and smart TV will give everyone the entertainment of their choice. Large very dog safe garden at the rear is another huge plus for us enabling us to chill without worrying if our lab was escaping. Every item you would need is there from garden loungers and BBQ to dog beds and bowls. In the area the beaches are great and close by. Brook and Compton (top 50 Sunday times best in world) are fabulous and dog friendly. Lizzie the owner could not have been more helpful and provides a great, comprehensive information book. Seafood Resturant The Hut needs a mention too as we visited 3 times about 15 mins drive away. Other nice pubs are closer. Book at weekends as they all get busy. We would highly recommend a stay in Grants Cottage For couples or family groups. We will be returning!
