Turnpike Cottage - a holiday cottage that sleeps 6 guests in 3 bedrooms
Spacious house in lovely village
Very well equipped, spacious and comfortable cottage. Beautiful part of Cornwall, easy beach access.
A lovely comfortable cottage
Just returned from 10 days in this lovely cottage, it did not take us long to settle in. Kitchen very well equiped, lounge comfortable, double bedroom very spacious.
Everything as described, garage across the way with parking, not a problem. Location was particularly good for us with walking from the door, bus to St. Mawes or Truro, good shop and cafe down the road in Portscatho. Easy walk to the sea, also ferry from St Mawes to Falmouth, The Hidden Hut not far away and The King Harry Ferry 15 mins drive away.
We hope to be back next year, it is perfect for visiting the family in Portscatho.
Cute little cottage
Excellent communication from the team
Highchair provided not ideal for a 6month old baby, otherwise travel cot great (though we had to hunt in the cupboards to find it)
Cute welcome package on arrival
More information surrounding incredible corner shop and restaurants beforehand would have been useful and saved us doing an online supermarket shop (note - Ocado don't deliver so we went with Sainsburys)
Thank you for a lovely week stay
Great family holiday
This is a spacious house, with everything possible in it to make your stay comfortable. With 3 bedrooms and 2 reception spaces, along with a large kitchen and 3 bathrooms, it meant that our group had lots of breathing space! As the caterer of the group, I can say that the kitchen is almost better equipped than mine at home, and there was certainly more fridge and freezer space! The 'housekeepers' (not sure of a better word!) were very helpful, and were at the end of a phone on the couple of occasions we needed them.
If I had anything negative to say about the place, it would be the lack of immediate outside space … there is a private grassy area across the road by the games garage where you can sit, but only a little bench outside the kitchen door, and that is right on the road. It's a small road, but it is busy. With windows closed, you don't hear much traffic, and it's a small price to pay for the location - 5 mins walk down to Portscatho, 1 min to free car park. Also, for our group, we tended to be out all day, and just collapsed round the kitchen table with a pack of cards and a bottle of wine in the evening!
A wonderful family home, spacious rooms, full of books and games. Fantastic kitchen - perfect for family living including dogs. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay helped by fantastic weather.
This cottage is beautifully equipped and very comfortable. We stayed during a cold snap but the cottage was very warm. It perfectly located for an easy walk into Portscatho where you will find a great pub and other hostilaries and amenities. There is easy access to the coastal path. While the cottage absolutely suited our needs for an out of season stay it is worth noting that the outside space is limited (it is mentioned in the description). It’s necessary to pop across the very quiet road outside to get to the main garden. If you have a dog, as we do, this isn’t the most convenient arrangement for first thing in the morning or last thing at night. I’m sure the neighbours swiftly got used to me dashing around in my PJs. Out of season it’s not a problem but may affect people in the summer months if they want to laze around out side.
All in all a lovely stay at a comfortable and very clean cottage.
