Although we didn't actually meet the owners, their kindness was apparent from the way we found the cottage on arrival and the considerate communication while we were there, but also after we had checked out. We found scones and cream waiting for us on arrival which made us feel very welcome!
The cottage has a working fireplace which we were free to use and a lovely secret garden.
It was very well equipped, with everything we could wish for.
The location is good for day-trips, but there is also a public footpath next to the cottage.
There is a shop next door, which has a good selection of groceries and a good pub across the street.
I would definitely recommend a stay at this cottage!
Stunning modern and clean cottage with fire place, Laura Ashley furniture, private garden with babbling brook and decorated eith hearts galore. Easy to travel around Cornwall from here. Will definitely be coming back.
Every thing was perfect on arrival at Ancarva at Perrenwell Station, warm clean and cosy, thank you Jaqui and Simon for the lovely scones and cream and fresh milk waiting for us, yummy start to our holiday.
We explored the cottage straight away and found everything spotless, not a spec of dust anywhere, the beds were comfy and it was lovely to have clean fresh sheets, and especially pressed ones (so comfy)
Clean fluffy towels, in fact everything was 5 star
We had a lovely week at Ancarva and particularly loved the log burner .many places to explore around the area, lovely pubs and close to big towns and tourist spots, but coming home to the cottage every day was the icing on the cake, we would definitely recommend it to friends and family, P.S BOOK at the pub for good food just up the road
Absolutely lovely cottage in a beautiful location! The owners are a delight and made all of the arrangements seamless. The owner met me at the cottage to make sure everything was to my liking. She even left scones, clotted cream and jam! The decor is so beautiful and comfortable. Would love to make the cottage my second home. Highly recommend!!!
My wife and I stayed in Ancarva for a short winter break and found it to be the perfect getaway. The cottage has been very tastefully decorated and manages to be both in keeping with its period and practical; we felt at home as soon as we walked in. Having a wood burner in the evenings, and especially on one cold morning, made it extra cosy.
Being equidistance from both the north and south coasts, Ancarva is a superb base for exploring the whole of Cornwall. It's also great that the local train station is only a 10 minute walk with both Truro and Falmouth only a few stops away. It was nice to leave the car at the cottage one night and have a few drinks in town. The local pub, which has excellent food, is just across the road and a post office/store is just a few doors up.
We couldn't fault the place and liked it so much we booked for a week in the summer soon after coming home. Highly recommended,
