Be Our Guest is one of 6 cottages that are just outside Truro, it was easy to find and our first impressions were very positive. The entrance is via electric gates, and a well maintained site, flowers and plants are well looked after, which was great as it said a lot about how well looked after and cared for the properties are, and we were not wrong!
We were welcomed by the owner, Maureen a very friendly and welcoming lady, she showed us around and how the hot tub worked, explained that she would have to call everyday to check the hot tub, however, we only saw her a couple of times, she knows when to call and not disrupt your peace.
The cottage was stunning and so much more than we thought it would be considering it was pet friendly, we were left lots of goodies, including a cream tea, milk and lots of other treats and our dog had his own selection of toys, towels, bowls and treats too, in fact Monty loved seeing her and if he heard her voice he went looking to the gate, knowing you either had a cuddle or a treat for him.
The kitchen was well equipped and every room followed suit, quality all the way through. The bedroom and bathroom was full of things you might need if you had forgotten to pack anything, she really has put a lot of love and thought into these properties. The bedroom was stunning, with a stand a lone bath tub, bath robes, slippers, chocolates and a speaker so you can listen to music while in the garden or hot tub. The bed was so comfortable and obviously good quality, we had fantastic nights sleep here.
The garden was private, with access to a field via a gate in the garden to exercise our boy in, the only sounds we heard were the birds! So relaxing and peaceful and we had an amazing holiday, we really didn't want to leave. Considering there are other cottages in the vicinity you would not have known this, the only sound we heard was the birds singing, I am not sure how many times we said it, but the words relaxing and peaceful were mentioned so many times.
The location is fantastic if you like the peace and quiet, and countryside, although you are only minutes away from Truro and some other villages. We visited Lelant Beach many times with our dog, and it is stunning, you would have thought we were in the Caribbean and not in Cornwall, and there is a hosepipe in the garden to wash all the sand off too.
I also had a look in Little Bear Cottage and wow, absolutely stunning, she really has an eye for knowing how to provide a luxury cottage that is not only private but very well thought out. I confess I loved so much of it I took some photos!
Would we return? Absolutely, such a beautiful cottage in a fantastic location.
