Everything was just as we expected, lovely place to stay. Beaches nearby were great especially with the dogs.
I have been staying at this cottage on and off for over 40 years and I love it. Just needs some new soft furnishings - like replacing the grubby cushions in the sitting room and a valence on the double bed. Also I would have appreciated some bare essentials on arrival like milk, sugar, salt etc and some washing up liquid, a tablet or two for the dishwasher and the washing machine. Perhaps some little soaps in the bathroom? We lost some food to mice in the larder too!!
This was my first stay at Toadstools, because my usual cottage wasnt available. I wasnt disappointed ,firstly being able to have your own private parking was a bonus , and meant I didnt have to struggle with my bags . Im in my 60s and suffer with Osteoarthritis . The garden was absolutely wonderful with a lovely patio , large table and plenty of chairs for eating outside . Plenty of shade if needed as it was south facing , lots of nice plants and pots , and a haven for birds . Inside worked really well , so nice to be able to just walk from kitchen onto patio Upstairs was very comfortable super bed . My friend used the annex which was ideal with a great shower . I found the location worked well for me . Im usually in Bohortha but I was mid way between all the areas where I love to walk, 5 min drive to Carne beach, MelinskeyMill close by and wonderful walking from there through the bluebell woods to Pendower beach . Bara Bakery cafe and garden centre just up the road . I saw a review that stated there were no footpaths from the cottage . This is not correct . Walking through the pretty village there is a footpath on your right which can take you to Pendower beach , or continue on the lane to T junction you will find a wide footpath ahead which can take you to Melinskey Mill . It usually takes me a few days to settle down and relax but as soon as I arrived I just became so chilled. Ive booked to go again in September, and Im sure I will have many happy holidays here at my newly found bolt hole Many thanks to Gail who made it possible for me to arrive a day early , a first class housekeeper , everything was spotless . Cornwall Cottages in my view are the best agents . so helpful and professional, and always very warm and friendly over the telephone. Jane Tucker
We had a really lovely stay in this lovely cottage, very quiet and off the beaten track. Very comfortable bed, clean, tastefully decorated and a great outdoor space for sitting out and having a Bbq. Would recommend this cottage, one slight note the ceilings downstairs are very low, not really any good for someone over 6ft, but lovely all the same.
We stayed in Toadstools for a week with our young baby and my parents plus two dogs. We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay, the cottage is lovely and cosy, it has a well equipped kitchen which has most things you need for cooking during your stay, the garden was amazing - a sun trap all day and completely dog proof which was great. The cottage is very private and quiet. The beds are all comfortable. There is also a fully equipped utility room which is useful when you are travelling with a baby. Excellent location for exploring the Roseland. The public footpath in Treworga didnt appear to be in use so all walks/activities required a short car journey. There really isnt anything in walking distance of the cottage but we didnt mind this! We did ask the housekeeper about recycling but werent given any bags so had to put everything in the bin. It would be good to be able to recycle in this day and age. Would really recommend Toadstools!
We had a great week at Toadstools cottage; the superking bed was the most comfortable we've ever experienced! The top quality bedding and towels helped. Hot water was virtually instant and the woodburner very useful on chilly nights. The kitchen was well equipped allowing easy self-catering. The cottage is artfully presented and the enclosed garden very pretty. The location allowed easy access to the east coast towards Heligan and Caerhays gardens and also to the south via the King Harry ferry towards Trelissick and Falmouth.
A lovely, comfortable cosy cottage, well placed for travel within and outside the Roseland peninsula. Very quiet, and adjacent to rolling fields and countryside. Perfect for a getaway in any season.
Toadstools was homely and comfortable. Welcoming after a day exploring. We particularly loved the woodburner but will need to get own logs kindling and firelighters. Also bring own soap for bathroom! The garden will be lovely in the summer. Kitchen well equipped.
We really enjoyed our stay at Toadstools- the garden was delightful with seating in 2 separate areas to sit out and enjoy a drink or a meal. The cottage was home from home and very comfortable.
Delightful traditional Cornish cottage with pretty garden and sunny terrace surrounded by flowering shrubs and pots overflowing with bright blooms and with robust wooden outdoor furniture. All needs catered in the tasteful interior with lovely comfortable six foot bed in the master bedroom which overlooked the private secluded garden on one side and the quiet village street on the other. Limited headroom in ground floor might affect anyone 6ft or over but cosy and welcoming. We really enjoyed our stay as did our two Jack Russell terriers. Jennifer and Alec
We spent a wonderful week at Toadstools at the end of July enjoying many meals outside in the beautiful cottage garden ( the photos on the web site do not do it justice). The garden is completely enclosed, excellent for those with dogs and children and is so peaceful that we spent many a happy afternoon there reading and sunbathing away from the crowds ! The cottage is extremely well equipped and very comfortable. Two of our party stayed in the annexe which they said was perfect for their needs as one of them had just had major surgery on their hip. Our only concern was the condition of the outside furniture as one or two of the chairs were not very stable and the whole patio furniture set seemed rather old. Also one of our party was allergic to the luxury feather bedding which may be something that other visitors need to consider. Overall though we really enjoyed our stay in this lovely cottage and I for one would love to return some day.
Toadstools was a delight and we loved the very private, secure, south facing garden - with a large table where we could enjoy breakfast in the sunshine. The beds were very comfy and the grandparents enjoyed the privacy of the Annex, avoiding the 6.00am wake up calls from their grandchildren! An ideal base in the heartt of the Roseland Peninsula from which to explore the surrounding area and the rest of Cornwall.
We really enjoyed our week at Toadstools recently. It was a great location, allowing us to access the nearby beaches for walks with the dogs. Toadstools was extremely well thought out, the decor was attractive & stylish, without being pretentious and made you feel comfortable and at home. The kitchen was charming and well equipped. Such a pretty garden, would have been nice to have had a bit more sun !! Would definitely recommend. And the owner was extremely helpful ..... when my daughter locked her self out !! We would definitely like to return.
Stayed at Toadstools as it slept 5/6 people. The cottage is on the Roseland so a little cut off and you need a car. The cottage was quaint, but a real mix of clean/modern to musty/old. The bathrooms and bedrooms especially the beds were lovely clean, comfortable and modern. The low ceiling sitting room had too much furniture in it and smelled musty and old. The kitchen was nice with modern equipment but a pantry full of cobwebs! Garden furniture was rickety and old, but garden was lovely. Ideal for walkers and dog lovers looking for a fuss free quiet break.
Toadstools is a charming cottage, full of atmosphere beautifully decorated and comfortable. We had a very happy 2 weeks there and we hope to do it again one day
Had a great time at toadstalls , Lovely cottage and garden , very comfortable and a fantastic location letting you explore the area. Great for puppies to with lovely beaches - go rockpooling in portholland at low tide , amazing. Will definitely be going back
Toadstools was the perfect holiday cottage for us. The cottage and dog proof garden are so pretty and the cottage itself is very cosy, beautifully decorated and exceptionally well equipped. The location is an ideal base from which to explore Roseland and everywhere was within easy reach. There was a comprehensive folder of information about the cottage and the area and Gail, the housekeeper, was also very helpful with advice about where to eat/shop etc. We would definitely want to return if we choose to holiday in Roseland again.
The Roseland Peninsular is a must. The cottage is in a great location. The beds were comfortable and the annex was really good. Unfortunately 4 people out of 6 in our party were over 6 foot tall and spent most of the time banging their heads on the low beams which are not highlighted in the property details. The property is ideal for anyone under 510 Some of the kitchen utensils could be updated as have seen better days.
Lovely cottage. Teenage son loved annexe! Very comfortable beds and every bit of equipment you could wish for in the kitchen!
We stayed at Toadstools with a grown up family, the layout was ideal as my daughter and son in law were able make use of the annexe and have some privacy. We took our dog with us and the enclosed garden was appreciated by both us and the dog, being well maintained and of a good size. The cottage had all the facilities we required allowing us to cook in some evenings and eat out at other times, I thought there may have been a barbecue that we could have used as the weather was good but this was not the case. The beds were extremely comfortable and we all slept well. Showers and baths all worked well with plenty of hot water available for us all. The Roseland Pennisular is a fabulous area and in May there are not many other tourists about which suited us just fine, we have not been there before but would go again. Few small gripes Dishwasher did not work No soap was provided in the bathrooms We wanted to properly recycle our rubbish and bottles but there were no instructions on how to do this, the recycling box and bags had been used for other storage. It was thought that a large wired hair dog must spend long periods of time at the cottage as hair was embedded in all of the carpets, this only became apparent when using the vacuum on the last day.
Toadstools was an absolutely wonderful place to stay for us - a couple with grown up children. We loved it. The Annexe was perfect for grown-up daughter and boyfriend as it gave them privacy and Independence. The Cottage is picture-book pretty - like something from the film, The Holiday and is beautifully, and thoughtfully equipped. Every comfort has been provided - the big comfy beds are a treat. For Londoners, the quiet and the dark was extra-ordinary - and lovely. There is ample parking and the garden is beautiful. It must be wonderful to sit out there is Summer. The low beams were a hazard for my tall husband and the kitchen could have been cleaner (though very easily rectified) - and everywhere else was beautifully clean. We all loved our time at Toadstools and would love to return.
A pretty cottage tastefully presented with a modern, well equipped kitchen. We loved the garden which had a Mediterranean feel and the main bedroom is exceptionally spacious and comfortable. Plenty of parking space, for 3 cars if necessary and the annexe was great for a friend of the family who had her own space.
Excellent cottage Ideally located to get all around cornwall Would recommend and will be looking to stay here again
We had a lovely stay at Toadstools which is a beautiful traditional cottage well located in the heart of Roseland. The cottage was well equipped and is clearly a cherished family home - it was great that we didn't have to go out and buy salt and pepper etc ! The cottage garden was delightful and a haven for the local birds. Being rural Cornwall the internet is a bit erratic. A few logs for the log burner would have been nice - the weather in June can be very changeable ! Overall highly recommended.
Beautiful cottage set in s great location on the Roseland ! Loved the comfy beds and in the living room the cosy wood burner !
Toadstalls has everything you need for an escape to the country with the beach just 10 mins away. Just lovely
Great for its quietness, a little far out to places but not a proble with a car. Cannot complain about anything at all. Only slight drama we were faced with, was a kitchen chair breaking with a family member on it to which we have informed the owners about and placed into the utiity outhouse. Other than that, very comfortable, quaint and peaceful.
There were 6 of us in total staying at the Toatstools including two young children (1 and 4) and a dog. We had use of the annexe too which was great so we didn't feel as though we were all cramped - and the rest of the party didn't need to hear the children in early morning. Absolutely fantastic place! You are hidden away on a small country lane close to farming fields but within a 10min drive of shops/beach/small towns. The beautiful cottage has everything you need for a perfect stay for a large family, from cooking wholesome food in the kitchen to keeping entertained if weather is bad and you have no choice but to stay in. We were actually looking forward to returning home every day to sit by the log burning fire with a nice cup of hot choc. The area is so picturesque and would definitely be returning soon in the future. As we did little research before leaving we weren't aware most places were closed being out of season and pubs shut at two till the evening and stop serving food after a certain time. We were caught out a few times with hungry kids but we'll certainly plan ahead for next time. St Mawes (within 15 min drive) is so beautiful. Wish we had more time to explore the whole area. Next time we will book for longer and definitely consider Toadstools a place to stay. Thank you for giving us a lovely place to stay for our first trip to Cornwall and for providing the information to show what was around.
Overall the stay was lovely, perfect garden for the dogs. Location is a bit out of the way but once you get your bearings it's all good. During winter times we would suggest that having a few logs and kindles supplied for the first night for guest because the temp drops at night and despite the heating being on the chill in the air is still noticeable. There was prompt service from Gail, when the heating did go for 24 hours and we were grateful for that. We will be recommending the cottage to friends and hope to visit again maybe later in the year.
Relaxing and good get-a-away from it all feel. Creature comforts to hand, quaint and lots of extras. Would go back and recommend! Would have liked more loo roll, t towels and kitchen towel. Watch your head on low doorways as cottage.
A lovely comfy cottage with everything you needed and high class fixtures and fittings. Comfy beds with beautiful White Company and Suzie Watson bedlinens and a beautifully fitted kitchen and bathroom. The garden was beautiful (even in February) and is safe and enclosed for our dogs. The stove fire in the sitting room was difficult to keep alight and needs new seals around the doors. All in all, we enjoyed our stay. Could live there and will definitely return.
We booked 9 months ago and were looking forward to your holiday the whole summer. We travel with 2 dogs, so one criteria is a well fenced-in garden. We like to have a house to ourselves and preferably somewhere in the countryside. Toadstools provided all this and more. It is cosy, clean, very comfortable beds and as mentioned, that garden is great. The location in Treworga was ideal for us, as we could fan out to many different places without having to put too many miles in. All in all, great place, great stay, great area!
We throughly enjoyed our holiday on the Roseland and we're already panning our holiday there next year. Toadstools is a lovely cottage with everything you could need. The bed in the main bedroom was the comfiest we've ever slept in on holiday. The garden is perfect for young children and dogs as its fully enclosed. It is full of flowers and perfect for sitting out in to enjoy the evening sun. The annex is a great addition although we didn't use it. The cottage is in a good location for the beaches and pubs etc. The dog walking is not great from the cottage with out getting in the car due to complete lack of footpaths in the area.
A beautiful cottage in a lovely part of Cornwall. Comfortable, spacious and well thought out, warm and cosy. It smelt lovely when we arrived. For me it was quite an inspiration, everything I love, gorgeous Susie Watson curtains, Garden Trading items the Smeg fridge and distressed furniture. Unfortunately, the car broke down on Saturday, but having such a lovely place to stay in compensated. I could have stayed another week, and usually I am ready to go home after a week. I really could live here, I was quite sad to leave. A dream come true.
Comfy super king bed, cozy lounge with log burner, well equipped kitchen and newly refurbed bathroom. Good location for accessing he Roseland Peninsula.
Toadstools is a lovely place to stay. It is quote remote and a bit hard to find but otherwise lovely. The only thing we could have used that was missing was a hair dryer.
We were delighted with the cottage and all its home comforts. It was a joy to sit in the garden and we appreciated its quiet location. We hope to return to Toadstools again in the future.
The refurbishments of the kitchen and lounge are excellent and added to the overall enjoyment of our stay. Would recommend without hesitation. Thank you to the owners who obviously care and have great style.
We found the cottage easily. Directions were helpful. First impressions were spoiled by front steps covered with damp leaves and a smell of curry in the kitchen. On closer inspection we noted that the cooker hood / extractor is quite old and clogged. Probably should be replaced . Kitchen tap had been leaking for some time. Hence black staining on work surface. The house has a feel of a well loved and lived in home, which it obviously is. We enjoyed the multi fuel stove and the warmth of the sitting room. The main bedroom was delightful and we slept well during our stay. Bathroom well serviced , plenty of hot water. Very quiet hamlet. Within reach of all the good places to visit. We ate out for all lunches and dinners. Found local pubs and hotels very welcoming. Maps and info provided by owners very useful. Without wishing to be over critical , if it were our home we would renew some of the carpets , sand the kitchen table and fill the cracks...de clutter generally in order to let it. For all that we enjoyed our stay on the Roseland Peninsular !
A very comfortable cottage. Well furnished, beautiful fabrics but in need of a professional clean to bring it back to perfection. Beds very luxurious with top grade bedding. Secure, secluded and quiet garden. Kitchen well catered for but in need of a coat of paint. Chairs in lounge a little uncomfortable. We were only two.........not sure would be suitable for six people!!!...................but an absolute must for any dog!!!!
Toadstools is a very charming cottage with a lovely garden. The Roseland area is very beautiful and peaceful - much quieter than other parts of Cornwall. Everyone we met was very friendly. We did run out of gas (a gas bottle) for the hob one day but the company resolved this quickly.
Toadstools is a lovely cottage with a fabulous garden and patio. Facilities were very good and the whole property well turned out and maintained. Location might be an issue for some as you literally have to use your car to get anywhere unless you want to go for evening walks across the cornfields.
Toadstools is a lovely quaint cottage with a lovely garden, but the annex room although looks lovely was very dusty as if it's not often used. Rural area and not to far to beach,shops etc but every journey has to be made by car.
This is a lovely cottage in a very central location close to beaches. The garden was delightful which we were able to enjoy because the weather was great. The annex was very nicely done. However, we did feel it was a bit too 'shabby chic' in some respects. The kitchen sink area would benefit from a draining board. The chairs in the lounge were uncomfortable and the cushions needed replacing. The cottage did smell a little 'doggy' and damp when we first arrived. The cupboards in the bedroom smelt too damp to use. In the master bedroom the cupboard was being dried out when we arrived with a dehumidifier.The patio could have done with a sweep and we could not find a brush to do this. Given all this, we do feel the price was on the high side as we expected a little more luxury for the money.
Lovely cottage and garden in a quiet hamlet within ten minutes of beautiful beaches and the sea. Well equipped kitchen with gas hob, oven, dishwasher, fridge freezer and spacious larder. Excellent wi-fi which is great as little, if any mobile signal. Great pub at Ruan Lanihorne - The Kings Head. The Hidden Hut at Porthcurnick beach and The Quarterdeck at Nare Head/Carne beach worth a visit. Curgurrell farm shop five minutes away sells amazing fresh fish, crab, lobster and fresh veg. Great stay.
A truly enchanting cottage- homely, comfortable and with lovely personal touches. A real home from home. The garden is the real jewel in the crown, however. Just beautiful and a really lovely place to relax after a day exploring the stunning coastline of the Roseland Peninsula. And for those who like to holiday with their four legged friends; it's perfect too! Lovely sandy beaches a 10min drive away for dogs who like to run free and feel the wind in their fur. And the endless coastal paths should be enough to tire any dog out. And it's all on your doorstep. You won't regret booking a holiday at Toadstools- and your dog will love you even more for it!
We enjoyed a lovely week at toadstools with mostly good weather. We focused our explorations largely in the Roseland peninsula, although we did venture out to St Ives and the Minack Theatre. We spent my birthday having a picnic at St Just and had dinner at the Driftwood Hotel. All in all, a lovely week in a special cottage.
A beautiful cottage with a charming, pretty and private garden, we felt very at home here, there are lots of personal touches and the location is excellent for getting around the Roseland. When we arrived there was a problem with the boiler and we didn't have any heating or hot water but housekeeping were extremely helpful and it was sorted the same day that we reported it. If we had any criticisms and this is being very picky, the bathroom isn't up to the standard of the rest of the property and it would have been good to have instructions on the woodburner and other appliances. The cottage company were extremely efficient, sending us lots of local information before we left home.
A delightful house and immaculately prepared. All the mod cons in a wonderful olde worlde cproperty representing great value for money in a beautiful part of Cornwall.
We had a great stay. A very comfy characterful cottage. Some beautiful places to visit nearby but convenient for most of south Cornwall. Will definitely consider coming back.
comfortable, cosy, charming cottage. Excellent enclosed garden. Convenient location for coast and attractions.nnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn
we found toadstools very comfy and cosy, especially the big double bed, with everything that we needed to make us feel at home, enjoyed sitting outside in the pretty garden, had one very wet day but with internet, tv, books, board games and dvd's at hand it kept the kids happy. the location was great loads of nearby beaches to visit, great pub in philleigh and truro not that far away if you needed the shops. had a fantastic holiday and would holiday with you again.
a very nice stay lovely cottage and garden enjoyed st mawes , and pendower beach, only draw back was having to drive to nearest shop. directions to cottage were very good found it straight away.
