“The Only Place to stay!”

Courtyard farm is absolutely amazing, the cottages have been decorated and refurbished to the highest of standards! in the centre of the valency valley the views are amazing.
Between the popular tourist towns/villages the cottages are in the most perfect position and the views of the sea on the nicest of days from the cottages are simply breathtaking!

Would recommend to everyone!!

“Cozy Cottage with Amazing Views”
Reviewed 16 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Myself, husband and two small children (3yrs & 15mnths) stayed for a week at this cozy cottage. We had a warm welcome from Sean on arrival and shown to our cottage immediately. Good convenient parking right outside the property which is ideal when transferring all the paraphernalia you end up taking away when you have children!
The cottage has three bedrooms, one of which is accessed through another bedroom. In our case, this wasn't an issue but I guess if you are staying with an adult party, this limits privacy. However, given the adjoining room has bunk beds, it's most likely intended for children in any event.
I would note that there are a couple of steps within the property - one going down to a bedroom, and one in the lounge going down to the back door. This did prove challenging at first for our 15 month old, who did fall a couple of times, and the back door step obviously goes down to the glass door which could have been nasty. However, once she learnt where the steps were, she did get used to them (we just had to keep an extra eye on her).

The cottage was sufficiently clean and bath & hand towels were provided as promised.

To the back of the cottage is a lovely decking area with table and chairs, looking out to stunning views of the valley and in the distance you can see the sea. A bonus for me was the amount of House Martins flying around the area - so much fun to watch. In the evenings we could spot rabbits and foxes too.

It's essential to have a car as the cottage is a good few miles from any towns/villages. We also took a particular 'hairy' route to Boscastle, turning right out of the cottage, which we wouldn't recommend! We know the area well though, so were easily able to drive down to Polzealth beach (around 35 mins drive) and in to Boscastle (around 10/15 mins). It's a very beautiful area and well worth exploring.

I think it would be a really nice touch, if some soap could be provided for either the kitchen or bathroom. Unfortunatley we didn't take any with us, so until we could get to the shops, we were without handsoap. another very minor point, would be that it would be great if a couple of tea towells could be provided, rather than just one. But I have no doubt that if we had gone to ask for some, they would have happily provided them. So both minor points.

Overall we had a lovely holiday and any issues we encountered were quickly resolved.

“Absolutely Stunning”
Reviewed 6 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

person found this review helpful

This is the most idilic place and location, we had a fantastic week, my dog was most welcome and was overwhelmed by the huge fields to run and play in. This is a great location to travel round Cornwall as we did. Sean made us feel most welcome and was on hand if we needed anything. I would highly recommend Plough Cottage for a totally relaxed peaceful holiday. I will certainly be coming back.

“Lovely Easter at Plough”
Reviewed 27 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014
1
person found this review helpful

We have been spending our Easter holiday week at Courtyard Farm for several years. Each time we were happy to return to such a lovely place.
From the open plan living room/kitchen at Plough you have great views across the fields with glimpses of the sea. You can watch robins and chaffinches from the window and you can enjoy your morning coffee or a glass of wine on the veranda.
In fine weather you can walk the coast path or do lovely circular walks. In the evenings you can relax in front of the log burning fire.
The rooms at Plough are cosy with a bathroom and a separate shower. The kitchen is well equipped which is important when you love cooking as we do.
We enjoyed our stay very much and are sure to return next year!
