I didn't think such quiet places existed in Cornwall today. A lovely little village and on the edge of a nature reserve with plenty of wildlife around. The barn owls were my favourite! The property itself was lovely and clean, very spacious for two and well equipped. The walk down to "the quay" was lovely and the ever changing tides gave a different outlook each time you went for a walk. Wendy was a lovely host and lived right there, handy for advice and tips.
A superb modern and easy to use property set in a lovely village on the edge of the nature reserve. The owner was very friendly with just the right amount of attention - if you needed help she was on hand but didn't impose herself on you in any way. We had a bottle of wine to greet us on arrival and some home grown fresh veg to help get us started. Parking was very easy and secure - great for dog owners and there were several garden areas to capitalise on the weather and secure a sheltered spot. The conservatory was a great addition and we spent most of our time in there basking in the sun and enjoying the view. All in all a great property and we wouldn't hesitate to return in the future.
We spent a very good time at Wendy's place : warm welcome - with fresh vegetables from the garden waiting for us -, fully furnished and perfectly clean house, beautiful garden and sunny terrace. We'll certainly go back to Robin cottage if we return to Cornwall. Thank you Wendy !
We received a warm welcome from Wendy(the landlady) and found the cottage, gardens and the surroundings idyllic. Simply lovely.
Robin cottage was a delight - in a beautiful rural hamlet yet still close to the coast. The house itself was very well appointed, comfortable and spacious with a beautiful garden which was fully enclosed for our dog and a further enclosed patio with lovely views. We particularly enjoyed having a door onto the garden from the bedroom and also the lovely conservatory. Wendy the owner was very helpful and friendly. Robin cottage was one of the best cottages we have stayed in.
Wendy is very helpful and very nice. We can very well imagine coming back. If you are looking for peace, is right here.
Very well equipped comfortable cottage in stunning location with panoramic views. It's in a peaceful village with a pub. Friendly owner, good garden space. We couldn't find any kitchen equipment it didn't have!
We were very pleased indeed with Robin Cottage. The accommodation was spacious, immaculate and very comfortable. Wendy had thoughtfully provided everything that was needed - including a welcoming bottle of wine! The kitchen in particular was extremely well equipped. A bonus was the use of Wendy's delightful garden which wraps around her house and Robin Cottage. It was also good to have her on hand next door for any queries we had. The setting is delightfully rural with walks on the doorstep. We could not fault it.
Robin Cottage is well presented, immaculately clean, spacious, comfortable and very well equipped, with thoughtful additional touches such as bedside radio, hair dryers, fresh flowers on arrival. Also clear and easy to follow instructions for equipment, heating etc. Wendy was a helpful yet unobtrusive host. The cottage has pretty gardens and views out onto a small wildlife pond and the estuary marshes. It is very peaceful. Photographs don't quite do it justice. Great place for a holiday with a dog, as the garden is enclosed and there are easy walks direct from the doorstep. The weather for our stay was not the best, so having such a warm and comfortable base was great. Lots of wonderful Cornish gardens within easy reach (we especially liked Trewithen).
Excellent standard of cleanliness to this lovely bungalow. Very comfortable bed and kitchen really well equipped. Beautiful gardens and so good that they take dogs. Wendy the owner is lovely.
We had an excellent New Year break in this beautiful, quiet and unspoilt part of Cornwall. The cottage was really lovely - just perfect; it was comfortable, warm, cosy, well appointed - a real home from home. Excellent bathroom with generous shower, extremely comfortable bed, and conservatory for meals with a great view over the estuary. Wendy was a superb hostess - very kind, thoughtful, friendly, welcoming and so generous with a present in the fridge on arrival. It is a perfect place from which to explore the beautiful Roseland Peninsula - plenty of coastal walks, pretty villages, beaches close by, plenty of bird life and the village of Ruan Lanihorne is delightful. It is also absolutely brilliant that Wendy allows and welcomes dogs at the cottage - such a big bonus. Great pub just up the road too with a good menu. We can recommend this cottage as a wonderful holiday destination and we will certainly be back. Thank you.
Robin Cottage is an excellent property & we thoroughly enjoyed our two week stay. Such a pleasure to book a personally managed cottage. Ruan Lanihorne is perfectly placed for exploring The Roseland. There are good walks from the door with hardly a car to be seen & yet less than 20 minutes to Truro.
Well i am so glad we found Robin cottage. A true home from home with everything you could possibly need. Wendy was an amazing host and while not intrusive at all, was always at the end of the phone if needed. The village is picture postcard and a great base from which to explore the rest of cornwall. I would recommend this place in a shot. Beautiful.!
Beautiful setting, especially if you like flowers and nature, we had some wonderful walks along the river with our dog. The owner was very polite and the welcome pack (especially the homegrown tomatoes) was very welcome. Only slight critisem is that it should state it should state in the description that there is no phone signal. It is the most relaxed I have felt after returning from a holiday and we will definitely return.
We had a wonderful holiday in this beautiful part of Cornwall. The cottage was amazing with every comfort you could ask for a real home from home. Wendy was a superb hostess and welcomed us back as if we had never been away for so long. Just the sort of holiday which would suit all ages. Beaches close by, lovely walks, plenty of bird life for those who bird watch. We can recommend this cottage as a wonderful holiday destination. We will certainly be back.
A lovely cottage, Wendy was so friendly and helpful, but unobtrusive. Very clean everywhere, nice comfy bed and we enjoyed watching the tide coming in and out along the river/estuary. The garden was fantastic for the dog as it was completely enclosed and safe. Would highly recommend. Cornwall is just stunning. Robin Cottage is a perfect hideaway.
A lovely, well presented cottage with amazing views. Fabulous location and the cottage is very clean , comfortable and well equipped. Wendy is a lovely lady and was there to give any information about the surroundings. Our visit to Cornwall has been a fantastic experience. We cant wait to come back.
I would not hesitate to recommend Robin Cottage which was immaculate with good quality furnishings, in addition to being very well equipped and everything in as-new condition. The cottage has a beautiful garden.and lovely countryside views. It is situated in a peaceful location ideal for exploring the scenic Roseland Peninsula and visiting the Eden Project/ Lost Gardens of Heligan. The owner is both welcoming and helpful. There is a great pub for meals within a couple of minutes' walk and others within a short drive.We found Robin Cottage to be excellent in every respect.
It was a delight to stay in Robin cottage Wendy looked after us extremely well, The situation was peaceful and very relaxing. and we both enjoyed it enormously.
Robin Cottage provides excellent accommodation and is ideally situated within reach all of the attractive locations of the Roseland Peninsula, be they country walks on footpaths, quiet country lanes, one of many secluded coves or sandy beaches. The stay at Robin Cottage was the first time we had experienced the wonder of the peninsula and we certainly hope to return to Robin Cottage frequently. The immediate surrounding area to the Cottage is peaceful and there is an abundance of wild life.
We enjoyed this cottage so much. Everything from location to amenities. We felt at home immediately as everything we needed was there, including a welcoming bottle of wine and pint of milk. The views are amazing and can be seen from many aspects including from ones own garden. The only sounds to be heard are birds and more birds, only interrupted by the very occasional car. The location offered relatively easy access to not only the Roseland Penisula but also places such as Truro ... as long as you like country lanes! Wendy, the owner, lives on site but is very unobtrusive, very friendly and helpful. We plan to return.
Outstanding and attractive cottage in beautiful part of Cornwall. Excellent base for exploring Roseland Peninsula with a variety of peaceful coastal walks and pubs. Lovely and helpful owner.
A lovely bungalow in immaculate condition which all made for a super holiday. There was everything you need to enhance your comfort. Great views from the patio in the pretty garden.The owner, Wendy Lloyd is a lovely person and most helpful. What a find!
Robin Cottage was in a superb location. Extremly clean and very comfortable, with a beautiful garden. Wendy the owner was considerate and very helpful. I would definitely recommend it.
We booked quite late so weren't sure if we'd missed the best places so we were over the moon when we arrived to find Robin Cottage. Perfect location for exploring Cornwall, extremely quiet, a lovely garden with BBQ and a well appointed kitchen. Wendy (the owner) gave us some fresh tomatos from her greenhouse and a lovely bottle of wine - both went down very well indeed! The secure off street parking was also very much appreciated as were the fluffy white towels and a few 'essentials' to get us started. If you're looking for a quiet place with the best pub in Cornwall a 2 minute stroll away and all that St Mawes has to offer just 15 mins away in the car then look no further. Highly recommended. James, Polly and Alfie :)
Wendy was the perfect host, you felt that she was there if you needed but you also had your own wonderful space. it was very clean and stocked with everything you need!
The cottage was lovely, very clean and a excellent location for our stay. The gardens were nice, although I wish the weather was better so we could have used them more. The pub across the road was friendly and nice food.
We had a late booking deal for this beautiful cottage, wonderful location and perfectly equipped. Comfortable and cosy. we both feel very rested.
Cottage (which was a good size) was easy to find from directions and a warm welcome awaited from the owner (and her little jack russell, Jenny). Local pub with good food within walking distance. Plenty of places to visit whether you want beach, country or city. So peaceful with our own "two" patios and garden which was lovely to come back to after going out exploring. Shame we weren't staying for two weeks but hope to visit again one day. Very friendly and helpful owner.
We loved our time in the cottage. The garden was sunny and colourful, filled with most beautiful flowers and looked out across the valley towards rolling hills. There was a second patio on the other side which remained in the shade should things get too hot. The fittings were comprehensive and modern and we particularly enjoyed sitting in the sunroom/dining room enjoying the vista. We were most comfortable and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
Comfortable cottage in a peaceful location, well equipped with pretty gardens. We enjoyed watching the creek change with the tides and listening to the bird song. We had a very nice meal at the local village pub which is well known for its food. Both the coast and inland Cornwall are within easy reach.
The cottage has been beautifully refurbished, and is very comfortable. The owner lives next door, and gave us a lovely welcome. The views are lovely, and the garden was great for us and our retriever, Alfie. We were outside at nighttime, and you could hear a pin drop, apart from the occasional owl hooting, it was silent. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay thankyou.
