    Absolutely loved poppy cottage. Spotless clean. Comfortable. Beautiful courtyard. Perfect base for visiting all around Cornwall. Don't let the dirt track uphill bumpy road up to the cottage put you off ,it's well worth it to stay in such a peaceful location. Lots of toys games and books for the children. Very helpful owners.

    Poppy Cottage gave us a totally peaceful and relaxing base from which to explore Cornwall. The cottage was very comfortable and was set in a well cared for courtyard with lots of flowering tubs - very pretty and private. As it in on a farm the approach road was a fairly basic farm track but that was a very slight inconvenience. Great holiday.

    A lovely cottage in a quiet location. Good facilities and wifi. Excellent host who was very helpful and friendly. A nice outside patio area to enjoy a drink and the sunshine. Don't let the lane put you off, I'm sure it will be improved soon. A good location for exploring this area of Cornwall, with the Eden Project and The Lost Gardens of Heligan close by.

    Thank you for this but I have already completed a review from some other agency. It was a good place to stay.

    We really enjoyed our stay at Poppy Cottage. It was very spacious, the kitchen was well-equipped, comfortable bed and good shower. There were lots of lovely homely touches and our hosts left us a welcome bottle of wine & chocolates on our arrival. It was also quiet & peaceful. Outside there is a lovely courtyard with a picnic table. It was ideally situated for visiting the Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan, both within easy driving distance. Just be prepared for the very rough and bumpy track leading up to the farm and cottage but otherwise no complaints!
