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 Truro & Falmouth

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.

Great stay in a lovely location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this property for 4 nights as we were in the area for a wedding. The cottage spacious, lighy and airy. It is well equipped and in a lovely setting. The owners were very quick at responding to any questions. I would stay here again and recommend it to others.

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.

LOVELY LOCATION

  • 4 of 5

Well equipped and the location was very nice and as we booked after the children went back it was nice and quiet. 2 toilets one up one down was great as the old legs do not take kindly to stairs. The only negative we could find was the house was not clean, the bathroom upstairs was very dirty particularly around toilet and shower screen and the flooring throughout was very dusty. Maybe the owners paid to have it cleaned in which case could we advise them not to pay the bill! Aside from the issue of cleaning we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Happy Cottage.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay in Happy Cottage. We are so sorry you found the bathroom not up to your expectation. We are always happy to sort any problem out to the best of our ability. We try to provide all basic cleaning, dishwasher tabs, washing powder etc essentials too for guests to save having to stock from scratch. We are sorry you felt you had to use them upon arrival. Thank you for the feedback.
