    We had a niece holiday week and Jenny and David are very friendly hosts. When we arrived the cottage was heated and little attentions were on the table.

    The Hen House is an absolute gem and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. David and Jennie were excellent hosts and the welcome basket of goodies and Victoria sponge were thoughtful and much appreciated. Our dog was also well catered for. A perfect place to stay on Cornwall's north coast.

    The location of the property was not relayed correctly. The distances to go to any beach location was 17 miles each way. There are no areas at the cottage to walk the dog, it is very isolated which was dissapointing, being the only driver it ended up being a tiring holiday to go anywhere and see anything. No paths to walk locally without driving due to fast country road off of farm. The owners were lovely and so was the accommodation itself, the advertised location let it down, if we knew of the travelling that was involved our decision would not have been to book this property on this occasion.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for your feedback which we are always pleased to read as we want all our guests to enjoy their holiday with us. We are sorry you feel the location of the property was inaccurately described. The nearest beach is 4.1 miles and also allows dogs. There are 60 acres of grass fields on our farm, with direct access from The Hen House, in which you were welcome to walk your dog and this was explained to you on arrival. There is also information in the guest folder in the property which gives details of dog friendly places and beaches for guests who bring their dogs with them. The south west coast path is also 4 miles from the property with space to walk for both dogs and people. We continuously strive to improve upon our own high standards on what is already a 4* rated property.
