About Mr John Garratt

Gill and John Garratt named this 'Happy Cottage' after a guest said how happy she was staying there. We have tried to make this a 'home from home' with all the facilities you would expect, high level of comfort and convenience. Warm and cosy in Winter, light and airy in Summer. Access directly onto the lovely Cornish stone patio to take your glass of wine and have a barbeque. Quiet, leafy and lovely lawns, beautiful flower beds.

Mr John Garratt purchased this cottage in 2002

Why Mr John Garratt chose Cornwall

Gill & John have been coming to Falmouth for 30 years - they used to camp on the very spot where their holiday cottage is situated. Their children and friends love this spot and we have all enjoyed many happy Summers and Winter weekends, Christmas and New Year here. The local beach is quiet and traditional, a short walk from the cottage. Gill has travelled widely having worked on Cruise Ships - Falmouth is her favourite place.

What makes this cottage unique

A beautiful, modern cottage, relaxing and calming. Wake up to bird song and go to sleep under the amazing night sky that is very clear from the cottage, free of town lights. The gardens have been tended by the same staff for decades, their artistic influence and experience mean many flower beds bursting with colour and local Cornish shrubs and bushes. Happy Cottage has open lawns at the rear with palm trees and an old Oak tree in the centre. safe and secure for the children to play whilst you enjoy that cup of coffee after supper.

Lovely little house

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this well equipped and clean cottage. The living space is airy and larger than it appears in the photos. The beds were comfortable and the village gardens are very pretty and safe for children. We made good use of the pool and jacuzzi and also had a decent bar meal in the Village Arms. The only downnside was one particular member of staff who was particularly rude and unfriendly. As we visited early in the season we enjoyed the tranquil surroundings and had the pool to ourselves, it is not really big enough for more than one family! An information folder with suggested places to visit/eat and opening times of the facilities, details of refuse disposal etc would be a welcome addition. All in all, I would recommend Happy Cottage and hope to visit again soon.
