Lovely cottage and the fishing was a huge hit!
The cottage was very clean and tidy with everything you need for a home from home. It was lovely and warm which was a huge relief as the weather was pretty cold during our stay. The weather, however, did not stop us all from wrapping up warm and doing some fishing. We had purchased some rods from a friendly shop in Liskeard called Fishing Mayhem (based in Golden Bank Nursery & Garden Centre). The fish in the lakes loved bread but another guy fishing was catching a crazy amount of fish using pellets (very smelly and looked like jelly) so get some of them!
The games room was a little different to the photo (the arcade game had gone) and the electronic dart board was pretty lame but we spent about 40 minutes playing on the table tennis and air hockey.
Snowy the donkey was hilarious and we all enjoyed watching it bucking and running about like a nutter! Very funny!
The location was remote and so it was quiet and peaceful.
The travel cot smelt a little musty and the highchair had mouldy straps so I think they had been in storage somewhere a little damp but I had some sterilising fluid with me so cleaned it off before use.
We really enjoyed our stay but things that would have improved our experience would have been clearer instructions on what to do when we got there and where to park our car; a little welcome box maybe (some biscuits/milk?); info about local shops/take-away/places to eat/etc (leaflets); labels on the many switches outside the bathroom to identify what they do; a washing up sponge for the dishes and some hand soap in the bathroom would have been nice as I hadn't packed these items.
Overall an enjoyable stay with my husband and two boys! Thank you
Hi Ayesha, we are delighted you had an enjoyable stay. We are sorry about the picture of the games room. Sadly arcade machines are almost impossible to repair these days. We will get new photos shot immediately.
The dartboard is a difficult one. At Trehill cottages we are delighted that children are able to explore the grounds and use most of the facilities without parental supervision. This does mean compromises and a dartboard with sharp steel tips would be one of them. Alas, the child friendly dart board is just not as good as a proper old fashioned one! But it is a lot less likely to result in serious injury!
For future guests information...
- We always email out extremely detailed directions and check in instructions
- Welcome packs are a tough one. We used to provide a mini welcome pack, but as dietary requirements changed and as potential allergies increased, we no longer felt comfortable offering guests basic items on arrival. There is a very good local shop in the village about a mile away (open very late thankfully!) and a Tesco, less than 5 minutes away.
Once again thank you for visiting Trehill cottages and we would be delighted to welcome you back in future!
Lovely Family Holiday
Very quiet, property has everything you need. Almost 100% certain to catch fish (lots). We are liable to be coming back!
A great holiday as the weather was brilliant. The cottage was lovely with great views, a friendly donkey and it was a nice setting. The only criticism we have is attention to detail in regards to maintenance and house keeping after people have left.
Nice cottage in great location
Stayed here with a group of friends from work. We were in the lakeside cottage which was very nice with lots of old world charm & a nice position by the lake.
lovely location and lots to do
We enjoyed our short break in Cornwall. the cottage was very well equipped and comfortable. The grounds were lovely and the fishing was fun. I caught a 15 pounder on my last morning. We didn't get to the China Fleet club but it certainly looked nice.
Lovely christmas break
Really enjoyed our stay here. The cottage was warm and spacious with great views. The Christmas tree and decorations was much appreciated and the China Fleet club was a godsend for the kids
