Lovely cottage on the edge of Bodmin Moor. Fab hot tub, sauna and downstairs shower with monsoon shower head and body jets. I feel we were the first visitors of the season and so the cottage needed some maintenance and waking up!. Swimming Pool not yet been cleaned for the season. We visited just before the coronavirus lockdown so local tourist attractions were closing down but is a great location for visithng central Cornwall. Close to NT Llanhydrock and Cardinham Woods. Owners were fab although again not much contact due to social distancing. Hopefully will return in the future when everything is open in the area.

My family and I had a wonderful, relaxing stay at Medlar Tree Cottage. The accommodation is delightfully quirky and comfortable with plenty of space to relax. The bedrooms are a good size and we found the beds very comfortable. The location is so quiet that you are a guaranteed a peaceful nights sleep. The house was clean and extremely well equipped, we found everything we needed. The wifi in the property is excellent (better than at home!) so no problem if you want to watch Netflix on one of your devices. The leisure facilities are outstanding - we all enjoyed the pool (heated to a nice level), the hot tub (always at a lovely 40 degrees) and the sauna every single day of the stay. The Smarts were very welcoming and friendly but not overly intrusive and it made no difference to us at all that their home is next door. The location is a perfect base to explore Cornwall. We enjoyed several days out but the notable highlights were Jamaica Inn (a mere 6 miles down the A30) where we feasted on a delicious pub lunch in the dog friendly bar area and our lovely outing to Padstow (via the ferry from Rock) - Rick Stein fish and chips were out of this world! We hired a transit van sized people carrier for our holiday and whilst you need to take it steady around the country lanes, it wasn't a particular challenge and the property has ample parking. All in all we had a wonderful stay and would happily recommend this property.

When we arrived at the house we were greeted by a wonderful view the house and it’s surroundings.. The house was exactly as described and the beds were extremely comfortable a wonderful seven nights sleep. The pool was amazing and the hot tub topped off by the sauna. The owners were on hand to help out and offer invaluable advice on local beaches and other attractions. This house above all offered a wonderfully peaceful holiday which was achieved with four kids and two dogs!

A lovely relaxing holiday with our two dogs.. Slept like a log every night in comfy bed, and just silence all around. The cottage is in quite a remote area, but just a short drive down to Bodmin. Plenty of things to do in the area, and loads of places to take the dogs without crowds of people. Although next to the owners cottage, we weren't disturbed at all and enjoyed the pool and hot tub facilities.

Stayed here for 7 nights with my hubby 2 children and my parents. Its a nice large cottage but needs some tlc! A few things in the cottage need to be updated, the sofa needs to be renewed (shabby and seen better days) rugs are dirty and mould on shower curtains.Hot tub was only on 32c for most of our stay which is not hot enough for a hot tub. Overall our stay was ok because of the pool (kids loved it) and the weather was great. We love cornwall so we will be returning to cornwall but sorry to say wont be returning at the cottage, its ashame because without the few things that let it down, it would of been perfect!

This cottage had everything we expected and is located down very narrow lanes so be prepared at all times for local people to come round the bend in their 4x4 vehicles..

We have been looking forward to our 5 days stay in the cottage as we are a small family and with work and other commitments need it some time to relax. When we arrive at the Cottage Mr Smart was waiting for us to show us around and give us instructions, but we were not aware that he actually leaves next door. As you arrive at the property you come to the front glass door which by the way does not lock nor does have blinds so you are on display all the time. The facilities were not as described as the pool was never heated and the hot tub was running on Economy with a temperature of 32 degrees, the underfloor heating never worked and the water in the house was also cold. The boiler is in a separate room on the site of the property with no access to it. Also, the downstairs has no radiators only access to the fireplace, which by the owner's information was supposed to heat the whole downstairs as it could be controlled with a remote control that didn't work and the owner did not bother to repair. We left the property 2 days earlier disappointed and feel we could have done better going abroad for the same money and for sure a better experience.
