Another great stay.

Back again at The Cottage for another fantastic stay. Everything was tip top as expected.  Thank you Jakki for all the treats. The bathroom goodies were especially lovely. Oh and a big thank you from Rocky who loved the dog biscuits. See you again.  Best wishes Mark, Jackie and Rocky.

Always a pleasure to have you staying at The Cottage. The bathroom goodies are a new addition to my guest treats. So pleased you liked them. Jakki

by Elaine & Peter Newing on The Cottage, Cornwall

We stayed at The Cottage from Christmas Eve until New Years Day. They say first impressions never lie... my first impression was 'Wow!'. The Christmas decorations were already up and the lights were twinkling nicely.  Jakki definitely goes the extra mile to make sure that everything is great for your stay - a hamper of goodies, champagne in the fridge and even a present under the tree!As usual, we took along our own box of 'stuff' as not all properties provide you with much beyond the bare necessities. The Cottage is the exception to the rule, it had everything - clingfilm, foil, bin bags, herbs, spices, oils and more.Being the main cook in the family, the large cooker with double ovens was a real treat and there is plenty of space in the American style fridge/freezer.The Cottage is located in a quiet village but is within easy reach of many well known places such as Boscastle, Tintagel and Padstow. Maddie (our Cocker Spaniel), enjoyed days out on the beaches of Crackington Haven, Rock and Widemouth Bay not to mention Rough Tor.We're already planning our next escape! Thanks for letting us enjoy everything that The Cottage has to offer.

Thank you Elaine and Peter for your kind comments. I try to make a holiday at The Cottage as comfortable as possible and like to give that little bit extra to ensure this. So pleased you also loved our little corner of Cornwall.

Just beautiful

We stayed at the cottage for 3 nights at the end of October with our adult daughter and partner and our 2 younger boys plus the dogs. What an amazing find. Comfort, decor and facilities beyond any other we have ever experienced as well as dog friendly. The location is perfect. The boys surfed every day even at this time of year. The welcome hamper was just so thoughtful and we loved the personal touch everywhere, from the artwork to the toiletries. We will most definitely be back. Thank you

Thank you Keri and Gordon. It is so rewarding to hear that guests have appreciated and enjoyed staying at The Cottage. The sea usually feels warmer in the Autumn, which would have made surfing more pleasurable for the boys. Love to see you back at The Cottage soon.

Just lovely

I stayed at the cottage 11 - 18 August with my little dog, my daughter, husband and their three young children. The Cottage was perfect, absolutely immaculate and a wonderful welcome hamper. In fact, all the essentials were there as well. We had a Sainsbury delivery on the day of arrival and needed very little else for the week. The Cottage is very well placed for so many places, Tintagel, Bude, Port Isaac and lots of great beaches. Our favourite was Trebarwith - watch the tide times though! All in all a great find, thank you Jacqueline.

Absolutely Amazing

What an absolutely, amazingly, beautiful home you have. Kevan and I spent 6 delightful nights at your cottage from 25th July – 30th July with Taryn and Paul. Everyday a new little item in your home impressed us – the welcome basket, the homemade shower essence blocks, the beautiful photos, the little finishing touches around the place, i.e. scatter cushions, hearts, ornaments. The quality of the cutlery, crockery and glassware. The books available to read, the games in the drawers, the well-kept garden. The list goes on and on.This was my first visit to Cornwall and I very much hope, not my last.Thank you from the bottom of my heart

Thank you, it was a pleasure to host your holiday in Cornwall and look forward to doing so again on your return journey.


Jakki takes really good care of the cottage and we had a very enjoyable time! We will definitely be back next summer!

Thank you Jo. You were my first guests from Hong Kong. It was a pleasure to host your holiday at The Cottage. I look forward to meeting you again next year.

Third fantastic stay..

This was the third time that we have stayed in this beautiful cottage. As before everything was perfection. Thank you Jakki for fitting us in at short notice, for the very warm welcome, and all the super treats.Our lovely dog Rocky can't wait to come back so he can perfect his swimming, as at the age of ten he finally took the plunge at Summerleaze beach so see you again soon.Best wishes Mark Jackie and Rocky.

I cannot tell you how happy I am to learn that Rocky finally took the plunge! You are very welcome to return whenever you wish. Jakki

by Jennifer on The Cottage, Cornwall

We stayed at the cottage with two large dogs and two children under 3 almost EVERYTHING was provided including cots, high chairs, toys even a potty!! We had a wonderful time at the cottage so clean and finished to a very impressive standard. Jakki the owner is so helpful and welcoming and if we needed anything at all she would be happy to help. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

Thank you Jenny. It was a pleasure to host your holiday at The Cottage. I am so pleased you were able to bring Harvey and Rio, your two Bullmastiff dogs, along too and especially pleased to hear that you found everything to your liking. Please come back soon.

Perfect Stay..

Our second visit to this fabulous cottage was just as good as the first. Beautifully furnished throughout with superb attention to detail. Its so lovely to be able to stay in a true 5 star cottage with our precious Battersea dog Rocky-Aloysius.....Only the best for our boy!...thank you Jakki see you again.

Wow, thank for your lovely comments; it really is a pleasure having you share my home. You are always welcome.

Just Perfect

The cottage is just beautiful, everything has been thought of and provided. The cottage is perfect for couples (it was our Honeymoon) families friends. We now have so many ideas of how to decorate our house! The location is awesome and just the best place to relax in a stunning cottage. Can't wait to book again and have been showing family the cottage details!

Thank you for your kind comments. I am so pleased The Cottage lived up to your honeymoon expectations and that you found inspiring details in its interior design to take home with you for your future home together. I look forward to welcoming you back....

Autumn break at The Cottage

We have just come back from an early November break at The Cottage. I was looking forward to it as I had booked it specially to celebrate my husbands big birthday. I was not disappointed and my husband was chuffed to be staying somewhere so beautiful. Everything about the cottage is done with great attention to detail and with style. The yummy welcome pack and house guide could not have been bettered. My husband even received a birthday card (thanks Jakki and team). Our Cockapoo was very pleased to receive a new ball and treats and enjoyed his stay too.We visited plenty of beaches and walked a lot so it was great to know we had the warm cosy cottage to come back to. We can't wait to visit again. Thank you for making our holiday special.

Thanks Issy. My housekeepers and I love it when guests have a special occasion to celebrate during their stay; it gives us a good feeling that you have chosen our little corner of Cornwall to spend your precious moments.

The Cottage

Wow, what a cottage! Jakki you have thought of everything and we had the most amazing time. This was our first holiday with little Archie and our crazy Springer and we were really hoping for a spotlessly clean home for the week so we could relax and enjoy.Your cottage didn't disappoint! So clean, warm and welcoming. We couldn't fault it. You even catered for our additional family members joining us the week after in Meadowview Cottage.It was a holiday we won't forget and for all the right reasons. You have it mastered, we've never been away to somewhere so clean that allows dogs!Thank you!Natasha and Paul

Thanks Tash and Paul, I am so pleased The Cottage more than met your expectations. Having realised there is a lack of high quality, clean, holiday homes suitable for young families with a dog(s), that are also comfortable and welcoming, I made it my aim to provide the best home from home experience possible.


Thanks so much for a fabulous few days in your lovely cottage Jakki. It's incredibly well appointed and you've thought of everything we could need. Welcome basket was awesome thankyou! It was great being close to the beaches for our surfing and pony trekking. We felt at home straight away and hope to be back again soon xx

Hi Katy, many thanks for your review. Guests sometimes wonder if The Cottage is too rural for their requirements but as you have experienced its location is great for accessing many different activities both coastal and inland, just 10 mins drive to the coast.

Heart & Soul

We enjoyed a weeks stay here from 12th August 2016; Two adults, two teens and a labradoodle.Wow! The attention to detail and effort in creating such a perfect cottage was clear, Jacqui has left nothing out, putting her heart and soul into it. Such a beautiful cottage, well equipped and designed, I honestly can't think of anything better.In an ideal location, the cottage was very well presented and immaculately clean, with lovely comfortable beds. The welcome hampers for both humans and dogs went far beyond expectations. Dog sitting was the icing on the cake and ours enjoyed two very happy days being entertained and very well cared for. Even the tween and teen enjoyed their stay.Thank you Jacqui, we will be back x

Thank you both for sharing your experience of staying at The Cottage. I am delighted you enjoyed your stay. My housekeepers and I strive to keep high standards and your recognition of this is much appreciated.

Tranquillity in Trelash

We have just returned from a weeks holiday in this delightful cottage. A real home from home with everything you could ever need. This cottage has been renovated to a very high standard, the master bedroom with its en-suite bathroom is spacious and elegant. The kitchen is perfectly well equip with all modern appliances.    Jakki was very helpful and made us feel very welcome with a luxury hamper on arrival. We had a relaxing time and would definitely recommend this holiday home.5* from us

Thank you for your lovely review. I try to instil a feeling of 'home from home' by providing as much as possible to make your stay comfortable and relaxed. I am pleased you also appreciated the tranquil setting of The Cottage in the little hamlet of Trelash.

by Ailsa, Seimon, kids and the ginger ninja's on The Cottage, Cornwall

The Cottage and everything about it was just what we have often dreamed about. The house itself is immaculate, space and decoration to die for (before I even mention the master en-suite.. It's simply perfection). There is NOTHING that could be improved about the house, the location is perfect for exploring North Cornwall too, so many gorgeous places on the doorstep and the fantastic house book just sets you up for great days and nights out or evenings in - thank you so much Jakki for sharing your wonderful home - off to look for winter breaks with you right now!

Thank you for a glowing review. I am pleased you found the The Cottage Housebook so useful. I try to include as much valuable information as possible to help my guest's fully enjoy their holiday at The Cottage in this beautiful part of Cornwall.

A home from home

This is a truly stunning cottage, it was immaculately clean, beautifully decorated, warm, comfortable and spacious. It was a true pleasure to wake up to, and to come back to at the end of each day. It was exceptionally well-appointed, there wasn't a thing, even including postcards, that hadn't been considered/provided for, and the hamper was much appreciated too! A great destination if you are planning to surf/body board, as we did so much of with our 9 and 11-year-old boys, as just 10 minutes away from Widemouth Bay, which is also ideal for surfing lessons etc. A big thank you also for the comprehensive House Book, it was very useful.

by Sally Meredith on The Cottage, Cornwall
Truly a luxury experience!

We loved our stay in The Cottage - it was a chance to celebrate a special week away with family as my Mother had her 80th birthday during our stay. The standard of accommodation was fabulous and it seemed like everything you might need had been provided or thought of. It was great having three bathrooms to go with the three bedrooms, so everyone always had their own space. The interior design and all the little extra touches of art, ornaments, flowers and decoration were marvellous - plus it always smelled beautiful too! We especially liked the welcome pack/hamper filled with high quality goods and local produce. We all agreed it was the best cottage we've stayed in during our numerous UK holidays as a family. Hope we get the chance to go back and thanks very much to Jakki, the owner, for all her help, kindness and advice!

by Anna and Toby English on The Cottage, Cornwall
Fantastic Cornish retreat

We had a fantastic time here in Trelash with our two young daughters and a friend during the Easter holidays. The Cottage is so well appointed that we never had a moment when we were in need or want for anything...down to the freshest ground coffee in the morning, and having a fire in the evening was wonderful. It was also perfectly prepared for our arrival, and spotlessly clean. The area is also lovely, and Trelash is a perfect base to explore the beaches and coastal towns as well as some of the sights inland too. Thanks Jakki for a wonderful stay!

by The Seymours on The Cottage, Cornwall
Exceptional Cottage

The Cottage is just beautiful and we cannot recommend it enough. Jakki has really thought of everything to make this a home from home holiday destination - there are some really nice touches. We found it very easy with our three young children and dog.

The Perfect Week

We had a perfect week and it was a really special first family holiday. The cottage is so comfortable, welcoming, cosy, and was absolutely spotless. We very much appreciated the hamper and all the added extras. I enjoyed two baby-free evenings in the fabulous bath, with a glass or two of champagne - bliss! We enjoyed days out at Bude, Launceston, Lanhydrock House, Tintagel and Boscastle....and mainly had dry/ sunny/ cloudy days.

by Daniel and Katherine on The Cottage, Cornwall
We will be back!

What a wonderfully relaxing and peaceful break. Everything screams "come back soon". We will be back!

Brilliant Christmas Away

Honeymoon Bliss

I cannot recommend this cottage highly enough - it's the height of luxury with huge attention to detail. We spent our honeymoon here and found it oozing cosiness and romance. You will not be disappointed!
