    Very enjoyable family holiday with three generations. The cottage is spacious, and the sun deck is a lovely place to relax and have a drink.

    This is the perfect location for an extended family vacation. The house has an ideal room layout. The garden lawn is huge just ideal for family cricket and other games. The view across and down the valley is wonderful. The house is just over a mile from Mawgan Porth beach yet is remarkably quiet. No more than one vehicle per hour passes by. Best of all, it is 10 minutes from Bedruthan steps and 15 minutes from Porthcothan beach which must be the least crowded yet one of the nicest beaches around Newquay. Since our previous stay in 2017 the top drive has been relaid and the light hogging trees removed. This has considerably added to the site. The only slight downside is that the bed in the largest bedroom needs attention. However, I would expect it to be replaced (or at least given a new mattress base) in the near future.

    The house was clean and tidy apart from all the showers in the property had black mould on the tiling. House was a good size and well equipped. Garden was nicely kept although the BBQ was in a terrible state and couldn't be used until we had thoroughly cleaned it. Overall I would use the property again and do recommend it.

    Very nice and spacious house in a very quiet location. There were 8 adults and 4 toddlers and a baby and at no point were we under each other’s feet. We all Really enjoyed staying here with no real complaints, only few niggles are one of the upstairs showers was out of order, other showers were a bit mouldy and could do with a bleach and the annex bedroom smelt and felt a bit damp when we arrived. There was a dehumidifier in there so we turned it on and used it throughout the week. We didn’t notice the smell any other days and it no longer felt damp. Don’t let these few thing detract from what you get for your money, the house and garden are huge and well worth the price. We would definitely enjoy staying in the property again

    This is a lovely house and the garden and the view are beautiful. The very large lounge is great. The beds are very comfortable. The bed linen and the towels are of very good quality. However, the house, particularly upstairs, could do with sprucing up. The paintwork is a little grubby. The showers in the main bedroom and the annexe off the lounge both leak water. The kitchen area is small for this amount of people. The hob/oven in the kitchen is worn out, you need a torch to see the controls as that corner is dark. Brian, the handyman, is very helpful. He comes Immediately if you need anything done. Overall though, we had a lovely holiday.

    What a fabulous house! 3 families and so much room. The house was ready nice and early for us which was nice after a long drive! Pretty easy to find too. The house was clean but I would say it could do with some TLC! The bathrooms were clean but a steam clean on the tiles in the showers is very much needed. Would also be beneficial if some cleaning products (bathroom & kitchen sprays / sponges) could be left as we missed being able to wipe down daily. There’s a few maintenance issues: cold tap doesn’t work on one of the baths, tv in annex no connection despite instructions which only left one tv for us all. There’s a leak under the main kitchen sink. The garden was mowed but shame the beds and hedges aren’t tended to more as needs a good prune and weed! General TLC like replacing curtain hooks, throws on white couches to keep cleanliness high would go a long way. Found arga hard to use as seemed to be set to come on at different times when not cooking and heating on when not really needed but not really a Bother. The kids (x4) loved the garden....amazing! And loved the bagminton net. Kids found the house very very comfortable . Most of the beds were very comfy with lovely mattress toppers. The location was quite remote but found the bridal path that led us to some lovely surprises. Came across the Scott & Babs bar at the retorrick mill first, hidden gem! Food amazing and lots for the kids to see and do! Carry on walking and you get to Mawgan Porth beach...takes about 35 mins (in total) at a good pace! Can be a little muddy in odd places but well worth the walk. All in all absolutely loved our weeks stay and would definitely book to go again!

    Really spacious and accommodated 8adults, four children,two babies and the dog. Welcome pack was a nice surprise. Brian, maintenance man + was friendly and managed to get a plumber the next day when we had trouble with a tap. Only minor issue was the positioning of the fire alarms, located too close to oven. Thank you

    We have hired cottages over number of year, this cottage was the most expensive we have ever used, mainly for its size on our behalf, there was no welcome pack on arrival, the main cooker was out of service ( this was sorted ASAP ) . several of the bedrooms were damp and cold, there is fungi on some window frames ,two of the showers leak, one to the extent water came though the ceiling into the kitchen. and handles came off in your hand. The sink in the main kitchen leaks badly . There was only half a small bag of logs for the wood burner. The land line phone didn't work. On conclusion all these factors didn't stop us having a very good family holiday, this house could be fantastic however it needs some serious TLC. Brian , the local help was very helpful and thankyou for that help.

    12 of us ranging from grandparents to young teens, and 1 dog, stayed over the 2018 Christmas week. It's fair to say Little Lanherne Farm received mixed reviews from the group. The property is certainly very spacious, very comfortable, quiet and very well equipped with lots of space but it did have a few issues which annoyed some of the group (issues which we could deal with without calling on the nearby handman who we know was available - for example fuses tripping, some very cold rooms requiring extra heaters brought in, shower taps coming off in the hand, peculiar bath plugs requiring some considerable force to open to drain). All more annoying that anything else. The wi-fi was however woeful both in maintaining connectivity and its range within the house - this was ok as we were on holiday after all, but rather annoying when trying to contact people out of the house (via WhatsApp ) as there was next to no phone signal attainable at the house and sometimes one had to rely on the wifi to contact the outside world. One issue which did cause some, quite literally, serious headaches was the positioning of one sofa in the smaller living room up against the edge of a kitchen worktop surface. Sitting in that sofa meant a real risk - indeed a reality on a few occasions - of smashing the back of your head against the surface when sitting down. The problem was, I am told, not resolvable by simply moving the sofa as it was apparently built in. The house location itself was fantastic and a short drive and/or walk to the beach/shops/pub. Whilst the weather was not conjucive to using the wonderfully large garden, we did of course use the driveways. I think it is sufficient to say that you have to be very careful when driving/parking within the property as the driveway were rather tight - in particular that on the lower level closest to the front door. We had just about enough room for the 6 cars we had there during the week. It did seem rather odd to us that when laying the recently relaid driveway on the upper parking level, that it was not made far larger than it was - there being plenty of space to have done so. Anyway... with some careful parking we avoided running into walls/other cars just about... but I believe with any more than 6 cars it would be a struggle. The above is not meant to read as a negative review... and my scores reflect hopefully reflect that. It's just marginally annoying that what could be an amazing venue just falls short because of some small issues that could be rectified without too much trouble. Personally I would happily return there - particularly in the summer to enjoy the outdoor space. I am quite certain a few of our group would however not.
