About Judith Smith
Hi, I'm Judith; co-owner of Silver Arrow Cottage. My husband and I bought the property in 2007 when it was a derelict mining building. We spent 4 years converting it into our home and this cottage. It was a labour of love and we are very proud of what we achieved. The building is eco-friendly and benefits from the latest technology in insulation. It is heated with a ground-source heatpump and we have solar pv and solar thermal panels. It's a little bit of luxury and just goes to prove that comfort doesn't cost the earth!
Judith Smith purchased this Cottage in 2007

A Happy Accident
We thought we had booked to stay in St Ives but when we put the postcode into our SatNav we realised we’d made a mistake. :) However, when we got there we soon found that this was a happy accident. The hosts Judith and Snowy are lovely. Friendly and helpful. The accommodation is just perfect. Clean and modern. The grounds that it’s set on is beautiful, lovely gardens and views.. Can’t praise Silver Arrows more. Would definitely book it again and we’re going to recommend it to our friends.
Peaceful and serene, a perfect base from which to explore Cornwall. Judith and Snowy were the most perfect hosts. Top of the list for a romantic stay.
Outstanding quality! Above and beyond my expectations.
I loved the cottage! It’s so beautiful,clean, comfortable, every little detail has been carefully thought out. And the owners are absolutely delightful.
Comfortable Cottage in an ideal location with friendly owners
My wife and I rented Silver Arrow Cottage for the week 21st to 28th December 2017.
We received a warm welcome from the owner Snowy Smith who introduced us to the amazing green energy innovations which he and his wife Judith have incorporated into the cottage.
Silver Arrow is clean and comfortable and an ideal and quiet base for exploring the delights of Cornwall. Liskeard, Looe, Polperro, Bodmin , Fowey and Truro are all within a short, easy drive. We were able to take full advantage of this even in the shortest days of the year.
The finishing touches to our stay were that Snowy and Judith had taken time to put up festive decorations and provide a panettone cake!
We will have no hesitation in recommending this property to friends planning a holiday in Cornwall at any time of year.
Exceptional cottage and hospitality.
From the moment we arrived, and were greeted by Judith and Snowy we new that we had been fortunate with our choice of cottage. Judith showed us the main points and made it obvious that guest satisfaction was the aim of herself and Snowy.
The cottage was clean, warm and well decorated: if it wasn't for the lack of fresh paint smell, we could have believed that it had been refurbished just prior to our arrival.
The following day I had a chat with Snowy beside the well tended garden and he gave me an insight into the 'green' aspects that they have designed into their project, including solar power generation and solar water heating.
Judith and Snowy went out of their way to ensure that we had everything we needed, and the freedom to enjoy our break.
If anyone is looking for a cottage holiday in east Cornwall/west Devon, then look no further.
Absolutely lovely, well decorated and fully equipped cottage
Awesome cottage! This was a comfortable, lovely place to stay. The hosts Snowy and Judith were so welcoming and very helpful in advising us of places to see, places to eat and anything else we may wanted to know. The eco- self sufficient cottage was an education in itself...we loved hearing about it and experiencing life in this wonderful place. The cottage is beautifully decorated and equipped with everything we needed except a coffee pot. I know most British are tea drinkers and a teapot was available, but we are coffee drinkers and we missed that. I don't mention this as a complaint because there is nothing we would complain about at this beautiful place. The grounds are lovely with a country atmosphere surrounded by many blooming shrubs and flowers. On the rainy days we still were very comfortable with staying in the cottage and reading or watching the large flat screen TV or viewing a video from their abundant selection. This trip was our "dream trip" and this cottage helped in making our dream come true. Thanks to Snowy and Judith - your planning and work to make this ideal place is greatly appreciated!
Being close to coast and in the heart of the countryside and moorland - you'll be spoilt for choice. Gorgeous coastline, historic houses, Cornish mining world heritage site only 2 miles away, classic Cornish fishing villages featured in Poldark - the list is endless!! Silver Arrow sits in a quiet, rural location adjacent to the owners' property on a peaceful, secure site.
