We had a very relaxing time whilst at the cottage. The free supply of fire wood was a real bonus, nothing like a real fire to make things nice and cosy. This cottage is tucked away, ideal for those looking for peace and quiet. The shared swimming pool was excellent with a Sauna, shower and changing rooms. The cottage had everything we needed and we met the owner who was very friendly and offered us a few idea's as to where to visit locally. The cottage also had brillant guide which offered a vast amount of information on local places to visit, eat and enjoy, plus a guide on how to us all of the appliances in the cottage. The Camel trail is only 2 minutes walk down the hill and offers walks to local towns and a very nice tea gardens. The Camel Trail is an idea way to visit Wadebridge, Padstow or Bodmin either on foot or cycle, and is also traffic free. We would definitely visit again, if we decided to go back to Cornwall.

Lovely cottage in a beautiful scenic location with stunning views to wake up to. Within good distances to nearby towns and within reach of key destinations across Cornwall. The cottage had everything we needed for our stay and the pool was a massive bonus - we always had it to ourselves and made use of the sauna too (note its £2 to use it but defintiely worth it). Lots of thought had clearly gone into the cottage, with lots of little things to make your stay comfortable.

Fabulous weeks stay at Woodland Retreat. Beautiful cottage, super comfy, everything you need, in such a tranquil spot. Outside space lovely, unfortunately rainy evenings prevented us from make the most of. Views from the property are gorgeous, especially from the window in the bedroom. Swimming pool was a lovely added bonus, we used it most days. Wadebridge close by, so amenities not far away and perfect for exploring North Cornwall. Perfect.
