Thank you Julie and Neil - we have enjoyed a lovely stay here in Lavender Cottage. It is a very convenient base for both attending a wedding at Trevenna Barns and is also centrally based in the county for exploring lots of new places on our first holiday in Cornwall.

We very much enjoyed our stay at Lavender Cottage despite the best efforts of Storm Freya! It is an extremely cosy house, especially helped by the log burner in the living room. There are so many little touches which help to make guests feel welcome: logs for the woodburner; a cream tea waiting for us with teabags and milk; delicious bread for breakfast; and very helpful instructions on all the things we would otherwise have scratched our heads about. Neil and Julie have put themselves in the position of their guests and asked the question: what would we like or need? and have triumphantly answered it. Thank you very much, both of you - March 2019
