    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.

    Great location and a lovely cottage. Very homely with a great welcome pack and fabulous cake. Everything you could need, really comfortable. 10/10 is the only score possible for this one. Fab access to all areas along the coast. Would we come back.....yes if its not booked up!

    We stayed at the Hen House for a Christmas break. The cottage had been decorated beautifully with a Christmas theme and we were welcomed with a wonderful basket of seasonal goodies and a Christmas card. Jenny had made us a delicious Victoria sponge, there were eggs milk and cheese in the fridge. Lovely surprise. We were warm and comfortable, the bed especially ! Our little dog was not left out - she had bowls, biscuits and there were even towels to dry her after her walks. The cottage is well equipped and there is everything you need for a stay in Cornwall. We would thoroughly recommend the Hen House - a credit to Jennie and David, the owners. Thank you.
