Hi Steve,

Just a quick note to say how pleased we were with 'Byre'

We will definitely recommend it as a great place to get away from it all, with a central position making it easy to sun search across Cornwall.

Hot tub was a big hit with us all, as we had our own one in our old house before moving and wish we had craned it out as we miss it!

We forgot to fill in the visitors book so feel free to put this in!

Many Thanks

Well set up, has everything you need, a very comfortable place to spend a week, ideal location and very, very peaceful, would definitely recommend!

Mr Langley, Gillingham, October 2013

We loved the cottage being situated on the Lanhydrock estate, it provided peace and quiet with beautiful walks and views. Easy access to shops but well away from hustle and bustle. Perfect! I was very pleased with Sykes up in Cumbria and equally satisfied in Cornwall.

Mrs Bryant, Canterbury, May 2013

It was lovely, peaceful and quiet. The cottage was very well equipped with all the necessary equipment to be self contained and set in a beautiful location.

Ms Bushnell, Chelmsford, March 2013

The location was great. Good for dog walking, especially in estate.

Brian - June 2010

Hi Steve
Apologies for this somewhat belated thank you for what was the most wonderful time we all had at Lanhydrock Farm Cottages last week. You really have got the most comfortable and fully equipped cottages one could imagine. All our friends and family commented on the quality and location as being perfect, particularly with Oliver and Rachel's wedding being at Lanhydrock.

We would recommend the cottages to anyone considering a stay in Cornwall. Thanks also for making everything so easy and trouble free. You kept just the right balance between leaving us alone and checking that everything was OK for us.

We made every effort to return all the crockery and cutlery to balance things out between the cottages and hope that we left everything to your satisfaction. Thanks once again and good luck for the rest of the season. Make your reservation book be bulging - it deserves to be! Brian and Alison

Just wanted to let you know that Les and I had a great time last week.  Everything was perfect!  The cottage is a delight and the Hot Tub wonderful.

To sit in the hot tub and watch the pheasants walk by was great.  I know we were lucky with the weather but we were even luckier with the cottage.

Thanks for all the advice, where to go and what to do!

Comment: Hi everyone,
We have just got back home and we have had a great time! The bodyboarding and surfing was great and I will never forget about the canoes! We will definitely be coming back and I\'m sure we are going to have another fantastic time. The highlight of the holiday was the flying and I am definitely getting a flight simulator!

See you soon,

Gemma and Val

Stayed in Cowslip in May. Cannot reccommend enough ! Great location for everything.Beach only 15 minutes drive with a superb restaurant and pub overlooking the Bay. The cottages are tucked away down a private drive and you even pass a lake on the way down.My children just loved to explore the footpaths through the woods and open countryside perfectly safe. I had an idea what we wanted to do and explore but steve the owner persuaded us otherwise and spent ages with maps and advice on the secret places to visit and activities. We had a great week thanks to him -a perfect host who is committed to making sure you get the best out of our holiday.He even took my son for a fly in his plane for FREE. I know he took other guests up as well- great guy!!

 We will be back and reccommend this oasis in cornwall to all our friends!!

Hi Steve

Back in London now and although the weather is fantastic we're all missing Cornwall and your lovely cottages.  It was one of our best ever holidays! There is so much to recommend the holiday that we are all considering booking again for next year and are recommending your cottages to all our friends!!

What was so fantastic was the fact that the location is so secluded, so ideal for families with children, as they can play outside and around the cottages in safety.

It is also the perfect environment for a group of friends/family to book together - as in the evening the kids can all play outside together, or in one of the other cottages, and parents can relax together and catch up over a glass or two of wine.  Much better than booking a big house with many bedrooms but only one lounge area, where there is no where to escape to if you don't all fancy being sociable together one evening.

Sue Newcastle

It was our first stay and we were reserved about the location when we booked. Not now and we will be back. The other guests were just great fun and the owner (forgot his name sorry!) put on a Free Hog Roast and what an evening it must have cost him a fortune!! We supplied the wine!! I cannot still understand why it takes me an hour to get to work 5 miles away but can be on a beach in 20 minutes 7miles away. I want to emigrate to cornwall and it would be this place. So quite and tranquill and really we enjoyed it so much it made coming home so mundane.

Sorry I cannot remember your name but thanks!!
