    Excellent Cottage

    We had a fantastic week in Sloe cottage. The location is very quiet and the setting in the courtyard a pleasant change from the usual cottage offerings. The ability to unload your car on the doorstep and then tuck it away was most useful. The cottage itself is exceptionally well furnished and equipped, there is literally everything you can think of provided, couldn't be better. If we're down that way again I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.

    A lovely break...

    A beautifully presented and well equipped stone cottage situated within a small courtyard of other similar properties. The village of Withiel is ideally placed for ease of access to Padstow, Newquay and the stunning beach of Mawgan Porth to name but a few. The pleasant sounds of the local environment was welcoming and a mile away from the hustle and bustle of our working lives! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Sloe Cottage, if you are looking for peace and quite within semi-rural surroundings, we would highly recommend it.

    Perfection

    This was our 2nd year staying at the beautiful Sloe Cottage, it's in a secluded and peaceful location, there are several other cottages in the courtyard and a Dairy Farm behind the cottages, but both times it's not affected our stay in any way. The cottage is spacious, well appointed and spotlessly clean. The owners Chris & Shirley were very helpful in agreeing a 3rd dog to stay, I would not hesitate to recommend this lovely cottage to anyone, in actual fact I can see us staying there again next year. Our party considered of 4 adults & 3 small dogs.

    Peaceful and everything you could need

    This was a lovely place to stay for our first family visit to Cornwall. The owners met us on arrival, showed us round and answered any questions. The property was clean and had everything you could need. Wifi signal was good and essential being as often no phone signal. This was a peaceful place and a good find as family were staying in another of the cottages - very handy to just pop round! We would happily visit there again.

    A great spot to chill out!

    The property was initially hard to locate but once there we were delighted with the accommodation. Every requirement had been thought about and the kitchen was very well equipped. The hosts has left us a very generous welcome pack - a lovely surprise. The beds were very comfortable and the shower excellent (much better than some we had encountered in the UK!). We were lucky enough to have excellent weather and it was lovely to return to the Cottage after a full day's touring and relax in the courtyard with a drink and dinner. We have very fond memories of our stay at Sloe Cottage.

    Lovely Rural Hideaway

    Sloe cottage is in a lovely rural setting near Withiel about 10 minutes from Wadebridge. It’s a barn conversion with a cosy log burner. Very well equipped and done to a high standard and is very well equipped if you are self catering. The bedrooms are all large with 2 doubles and 1 twin. Everything is done for you on arrival with beds made up fresh towels and some welcome basics - milk, tea, wine, chocolates waiting for you on arrival. It’s dog friendly but it’s very well looked after and you wouldn’t know other dogs had been in there. We stayed in Feb 2020 (in between 2 fairly severe storms) and it was a lovely, warm and cosy retreat to come home to after a blustery walk on the beach with the dog. It’s is rural with a 10 minute drive on very narrow lanes to get anywhere. If it’s peace and quiet you seek you will find it here. It’s a small complex with a handful of other farm conversions but heard zero noise from anyone all week. If there is one thing needs doing at Sloe Cottage it is the main bath. It’s perfectly fine and everything works but everywhere else has here been updated to a high standard that it now looks a little old in comparison. We had a great week and when looking for a quiet week away will certainly look to Sloe Cottage again.

    Excellent cottage, very clean and comfortable.

    Excellent accommodation, very clean and comfortable and well equipped. Great location for where we wanted to explore whilst on holiday. The only negative was that on a couple of occasions we were woken very early in the morning with the cows and farm traffic, although this may have just been the time of year. Overall we really enjoyed our stay and would recommend to anyone.
