    We have just returned from our third vacation at Sweets Close, this time for two weeks and we have thoroughly enjoyed our stay. From the moment we got there we remembered how peaceful it is, also being surrounded by countryside we saw a lot of wildlife, including Jays, Copper butterflies, and the occasional Buzzard. We were welcomed by Carol who always makes us feel welcome, and thank you for the tasty buns!! The accommodation is spacious, warm, clean and very well supplied with everything we could possibly want. The location being on the edge of the village is blissfully quiet. The local amenities are, to us, first class. The local Premier shop is open from 8am to 8pm and the local pub. the Polgooth Inn has an amazing menu and although I don't drink beer they do have a nice range of good quality wine. Nothing is too much trouble for the owner, Lizzie, and we can see their hard work keeping the bungalow in tip top condition shows.

    Had a lovely holiday here despite poor weather. The property is cosy, warm, well equipped and very spacious for the two of us. It's situated in its own grounds with lots of local wildlife about and was a very pleasant and peaceful place to spend time. The owners couldn't have been more helpful and very kindly sent some clothes I'd left back to me in Yorkshire. We would definitely stay there again for a holiday in Cornwall.

    This was our second stay here and I can't recommend it highly enough. It is a lovely peaceful and secluded location, perfect for a relaxing break. The cottage is well equipped, spotlessly clean and nice and cosy on chilly evenings. The Welcome Pack is full of useful local information and ideas of things to do and we found it to be an ideal base for visiting all areas of Cornwall. If you are taking your dogs on holiday with you then the garden is a perfect place for them to run and play. Sweet's Close really is a home from home.

    This was our second visit to Sweet's Cottage and again, everything was excellent. The cottage has been redecorated and to be honest we just can't fault anything. The location is really quiet being on the edge of Polgooth and the garden is kept in perfect condition. If you like a wood burning fire then this property has two! My wife and I spent a whole day in the garden enjoying the wildlife!! This property is fantastically appointed, you do not need to bring anything here, just take away happy memories.

    We had a most enjoyable week here, a December break before the madness of the festive season! We were looking for a spacious home with an open fire and a good-sized TV and this place delivered on all counts. It is clearly a well-loved family property and as such, the fixtures and fittings, furniture etc are all top quality. The property manager is friendly and helpful and we had good contact with the owner prior to our arrival. Manoeuvring the car into the drive was a bit of a challenge but as with all such things, this became easier with practice! The garden would be a terrific place for children to play in and the plot is relatively secluded and surrounded by trees. The village shop is exceptionally well stocked although we didn’t share the enthusiasm of others for the pasties. The pub is welcoming but rather expensive, it made for a nice treat one evening.
