    A lovely little cottage, well situated to explore the surrounding area and very peaceful. Our only problem was the bed- it was very firm and for us, was quite uncomfortable. Otherwise a very enjoyable visit.

    Very comfortable, clean cottage. Everything we needed was provided for. We had problem with the shower and television. These were promptly fixed by the friendly owner. Close to Padstow and good facilities in nearby St Merryn. We shall return.

    We had a fabulous stay at Nelly's House. Although on a working farm, it was quiet and peaceful. We even had the sheep visiting us at the window most mornings!! The location was great and we managed to visit a different area of Cornwall every day as everything is in driving distance. The house itself is lovely, very clean and cosy with everything you need for your stay, it was perfect for me and my Husband and we didn't want to leave :( Overall, I cannot recommend this place enough, we will definitely be returning to stay again!!!

    Cottage was very clean and tidy. Was left a lovely cream team on arrival. Close to Padstow and St Merryn. Found the bed to be a little uncomfortable for our liking. No internet service which was not a problem for us.

    Had a really relaxing break at Nelly's House. Bit out of the way but that suited us. Beautiful surrounding countryside to get away from it all. Well equipped and comfortable.

    Perfect. Such a warm welcome from the lovely owners. Great location in easy reach of all our North Cornwall favourites with peace and quiet plus a good walk to the pub! Superb renovation and design. Can't wait to return.

    The cottage was lovely, everything you could possibly need. Clean, compact, well equipped, cosy and lovely welcoming touch of a cream tea on arrival. The location is perfect for a getaway, the real farm life noises just added to the charm and weren't a problem at all. There is a 'local' (pub/restaurant) but we found it very, very busy so expect to drive for evening entertainment. That said, the cottage had everything you'd need to cook for yourself so no worries there.

    A cosy property with every facility that you need. The owner lives on the site so if anything is required you only have to ask. There's a supermarket in Padstow for essentials and a variety of restaurants close by. Driving to and fro isn't a problem but the winding narrow lanes can be taxing.

    Amazing little cottage tucked away in a lovely part of Cornwall. The cottage was clean and well kept, also the owner was very friendly and helpful. Me and my partner would defiantly stay there again.
