holiday reviews

The tranquility

It was lovely coming back each evening to the tranquility at The Green. We wouldn't change a thing.

Breath taking views

The Green Cornwall is absolutely stunning with its breath taking views and it is so peaceful. We have enjoyed being able to hear the birds sing and going on lovely walks.  We wouldn't change a thing about The Green. We were surprised how much thought has gone into the house and cottages to make sure the guest has the best possible stay. The Green has the perfect balance of fantastic facilities, stunning views and great location. We have had an amazing stay and will definitely be coming back.

Thank you The Green Team for making our stay so enjoyable!

A great venue with great facilities

A great venue with great facilities. Really comfy beds.  I was surprised about how modern the cottage we stayed in was and just how big it is. The views and woodland surrounding the venue is amazing. We had an amazing time here and would love to come again.

First Impressions were brilliant

First impressions were brilliant (and we arrived in the dark!) Lovely landscape, relaxing atmosphere & having stayed in a cottage gave a real community feeling & we immediately felt at home. We'd make the journey again & for my first trip to the South West, I'd say it was a complete success. Thank you.

Brilliant family holiday location

We had a wonderful family holiday in Mid October at The Green. No4 is the perfect accommodation for relaxing and enjoying the delights of Cornwall in the Autumn. The location is ideal for reaching many of the regions key attractions - just want is needed to keep an active 7 year old occupied. Just the immediate surroundings of The Green are exciting to explore and safe for children. The Green accommodation is very well equipped, we did not want for anything and all was 'as it said on the tin'. Thank you to the great team who made sure our stay was a memorable, relaxing holiday.

We will recommend The Green to everyone of our friends in the Netherlands

Being together with the whole family in one very comfortable cosy house has been so fantastic. We will recommend everyone of our friends in the Netherlands to go for the 'Green Cornwall' experience.

Couldn’t have wanted more

We have had an amazing time here. Beautiful cottage - couldn't have wanted more.

Perfect view

A lovely house with a perfect view and so quiet too!

I wish we could stay forever!

I have really loved staying here and wish we could stay forever! A beautiful cottage in a beautiful area. The whole of the Green is so peaceful and we were provided with everything we needed. We cannot wait to come back and have lots of friends and family to recommend you to.

Thank you for a wonderful and relaxing break in a beautiful cottage!

It was a truly magical experience for us, we will treasure this for ever!

We wouldn't change anything, from our arrival to the tentativeness to our wedding day. How The Green were able to direct us to the photographer and florist to help us with planning we didn't have to do very much. James and I have enjoyed the beautiful surroundings and the location. We absolutely loved the cottage and the friendly staff. Our wedding was the best day off our lives. It was a truly magical experience for us both, we will treasure this for ever!

No pictures can justify the beauty of this place

No pictures can justify the beauty of this place, so everything was a pleasant surprise. There is nothing more we could have ashed for. Nothing could be improved we wish we could have stayed for longer!

Everything was as described on the website … and better!

Everything was as described on the website and better! Its very peaceful and comfortable, warm and great. William liked the comfortable furniture and beds and so did we!

High quality accommodation

High quality accommodation with lovely playground and outside space. The WIFI is fantastic and its peaceful.

A real home away from home

The attention to detail and practicality of everything; mood-lighting, music in all rooms, everything you needed in the kitchen. A real home away from home. We loved it here and will be happy to come back on our next visit to Cornwall.

Spacious house with lovely grounds

We enjoyed the that our dogs were allowed to stay with us. The house was spacious with lovely grounds. Its peaceful and relaxing.

Peace and tranquility

We enjoyed the peace and tranquility and relaxed attitude to everything. All arrangements made were very efficient.

A very relaxing break away

We loved how peaceful it is and how it's tailor-made for a very relaxing break away.

It was nice that we got to bring our little dog with us.

Thank you

Great location

We loved the views, peace and quiet and the location. We also enjoyed the fabulous pub in the village.

The lighting in the cottage is great, the duvets were comfortable and the décor is beautiful.

Thank you, we've had a wonderful holiday!

The team actually care about their guests

We have enjoyed the peace, tranquillity and beautiful grounds. It has been just the place we needed for a little relaxation.

We were impressed by the attention to detail and the fact that the team actually do care about the people staying. It's great to be somewhere where it doesn't feel like money is the main priority!

Thank you for being so welcoming and for a great stay, we have really enjoyed it!

Extremely comfortable

We had a lovely time at my nieces wedding. Cottage is lovely has almost everything you could want. Its extremely comfortable & very cosy. We will definitely return here.

What a find

What a find last minute, a welcomed relaxed break away from all the building work back home. We loved how peaceful it was here and the cottage is beautiful. Spent an amazing week with our kiddies they loved Holywell beach lovely stream to play in away from the rough waves. We will be back soon we hope!

Everything we needed was here

Fantastic week, everything we needed was here and the setting was perfect with lovely wildlife & fantastic blackberries & apples! Thank you.

Excellent base to enjoy a family holiday

Excellent base to enjoy a family holiday. Beach days at Looe and Praa sands, walks, Lost Gardens of Heligan and rainy days spent at Liskeard swimming pool a big hit with our three.

Delightful accommodation and grounds filled with interesting wildlife plus playground in the orchard the biggest hit of all. Thank you especially for all the equipment for our two year old twins.

A fantastic holiday in a truly amazing setting

A fantastic holiday in a truly amazing setting. We've been to Looe, The Lost Gardens of Heligan, Eden, Crealy's Adventure Park. Adults and kids thoroughly kept busy during our week here. We will be back again. Thank you.

We’ve loved every minute

A wonderful stay in a beautiful place in an amazing part of the UK. We did so much, including enjoying the cottage and grounds. A real highlight for us was visiting the wild swimming it was breathtaking - literally. We've loved every minute, thank you to the team at The Green.

Just want we wanted

Really needed the break and this was just what we wanted! A lovely cottage and the location is ideal. Dog absolutely loved it too! Thank you.

We will be recommending to friends and family

Wonderful cottage and excellent staff. Very clean and well presented. We will be recommending to friends and family.

Amazing experience

Amazing experience, so wonderful to find the cottage incredibly clean and well appointed. Owners super attentive and smile - Awesome. Would highly recommend. Thank you x

The house is beautiful and so peaceful

We enjoyed "The house" especially for the large number, that we were. The entire property is beautiful and so peaceful. Everyone was very friendly and accommodating. We would definitely recommend The Green Cornwall to friends.

A warm welcome and nice personal touches

We had a lovely few days staying in cottage no.4 with our 9 month old daughter. The cottage was clean, the beds were comfortable and there were added touches like tea, coffee, milk, cleaning products. We were made to feel really welcome by Moira. The location was absolutely stunning; our cottage overlooked the trees and you could see for miles around. We will definitely be coming again. Thank you Moira and the team for a lovely first holiday with our little girl x

Perfect for our young kids

Very enjoyable stay, perfect for our young kids. Beautiful landscape and the grounds stunning. The cottage had everything we could have asked for. We plan to be back.

Beautiful surroundings

The surroundings at The Green are beautiful and it was lovely to be able to open the double doors onto the grass/eating area.

We also appreciated the nearby swings, orchard and the lovely grounds to walk around.

Inside the cottage the space has been used well to provide good living space even with 2 children.

The extras provided in the cottage such as tea, coffee, sugar, milk, tin foil was great and not alwys found in other rented properties.

The selection of books was helpful, especially the ones for children.

Thank you for a lovely stay, we would love to visit again.

We loved the peace and quiet

The cottage was very well equipped. We loved the peace and quiet and there is a lovely selection of garden birds to listen to and watch.

Peace and tranquillity

Perfect...... birds singing, we saw kites and a woodpecker!

The cottage was nicely presented, warm and cosy with good facilities.

The location is convenient for exploring this part of Cornwall as there is easy access to both coasts.

The grounds are wonderful and the views from the cottage are to die for.

The staff are onsite, on hand if you need anything and very friendly.

There is also free wifi which is a bonus.

There are some lovely dog-friendly walks nearby too.

We have loved every second in cottage 2

We booked to come as a slightly late birthday and valentines day present and have loved every second in Cottage 2. The cottage is fantastically cosy, even during the cold weather, and has everything that could be needed by a family for their stay. It is in a fantastic location and we had great days out at both Newquay and the Eden Project. This place is amazing and we will definitely be back!

Excellent communication

The organisation and accommodation was superb, very comfortable and well equipped.

We are looking forward to booking our wedding here. We have found the communication to be excellent with all questions being answered promptly.

A great space with a friendly feel

Beautiful house, great space, lovely roaring fire, gorgeous views and a friendly feel.

The facilities were a positive surprise, 4 bathrooms, 7 bedrooms and everything you find at home!

We would definitely recommend to our friends and look forward to returning!

Thank you for making our Christmas so special.

We wouldn’t change a thing

We have thoroughly enjoyed the amazing, relentless tranquillity of The Green!

The facilities, comfortable beds, woodland walk were all 10 out of 10, I has everything a family could possibly need.

It is in a fantastic location to access all of Cornwall's attractions, a perfect base.

Even thought there are other cottages and a house on site, we felt like we were the only ones here.

The owners have put in a lot of effort to provide local information, this would be an amazing place, whatever time of year! We wouldn't change anything about it, we want to live here!

We didn’t want to leave

The tranquil picture postcard setting, wonderful management and exquisite accommodation complete with all essentials and every day items - everything has been really well thought out and prepared, making it such and easy, relaxing stay. We didn't want to leave!

We loved the high standard of the accommodation and the views from the cottages. The pictures on the website do not do it justice. They really are furnished and designed to an extremely high standard.


Amazing views

Clean, fresh and well equipped cottage in a beautiful, well kept location with amazing views.

Well equipped cottages

The cottage were so nice inside, really well equipped and super comfy! The duvets were lovely and snuggly too.

Ten out of ten for everything, we had an excellent weekend in spite of the weather being a bit on and off. We would recommend it to anyone.


Close to nature

We liked how quiet it was here, and how close we felt to nature during our stay.

The privacy in the cottages was a plus, we were in a detached cottage so we had privacy but didn't feel alone.

The whole concept of The Green is very pleasant. The adaption of the local style of buildings to this concept and to the requirements of the guests is impressive.

Relaxed atmosphere

We enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and the silence at night!

We liked spotting the buzzards, watching them circle above the fields.

We liked that our cottage was close enough to the other guests that we didn't feel alone but far enough away to have our privacy.

A great location for young families with children who need space to "let off steam" or for people who just need time out away from the crowds.

Contemporary yet homely

We loved how stylish the accommodation was, contemporary yet homely. Very well done!

The cottage was lovely, well equipped and the location was perfect.

It was everything we wanted from our getaway.

Our second visit!

This was our second visit to The Green and we all relaxed straight away and enjoyed re-visiting all the places in the grounds that we remembered fondly.

We love the peace and quiet and the feel of the place.

Lovely long weekend

Spent a lovely long weekend in a cottage at The Green. Beautiful, well equipped cottage set in very well kept grounds - dog and family friendly.

Great base for exploring - will definitely be back and would recommend this place.

I would suggest doing an online food shop or picking up food on your way to the cottage.

A home from home

The location is perfect for a break, there are plenty of beaches within reach despite being very rural.

It's like a home from home, the facilities were excellent as every detail has been thought about.

We are already looking to re-book this summer and considering it as a wedding venue! 🙂


Well kept grounds and beautiful views

We had a fantastic stay at The Green. The staff were friendly and helpful, and we were impressed by the eco credentials - ground source heating and fresh water from a borehole.

The grounds were well kept with beautiful views, this made for some lovely walks to start/end the  day which the whole family enjoyed.

We even had an owl who would visit our window sill after dark, amazing!

Friendly welcome

We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday at The Green, especially the comfortable bed, peaceful surroundings and not to mention the fluffy white towels. The tea and coffee which was supplied was a lovely touch too.

A big thank you to the team for the friendly welcome we received, we will be back.


10 out of 10

The house and cottages are beautifully furnished and decorated, and in such a fabulous location.  It was brilliant to have tea, coffee, milk and even fairy liquid already at the house!  We would definitely recommend The Green to anyone - 10 our of 10!!

Well located for day trips

The setting, location and cottage really made our holiday.  The Green is also well located for day trips without it being too far to drive.  We would definately recommend The Green and hope to visit again in the summer with our friends and family.

Beautiful surroundings

The Green is set amoungst some very attractive buildings and beautiful surroundings, and is well located for the beach and the wonderful Cornish countryside.

Clean and spacious

We had a lovely stay at the Green - our cottage was clean, spacious, well maintained.

Quiet open spaces

We enjoyed the wonderful house and quiet open spaces.  It was an ideal sized house for all of us.

Quiet and beautiful setting

We enjoyed the clean and comfortable accomodation in such a quiet and beautiful setting.

We loved the little touches

We’ve just come back from a weekend at The Green.  The photos simply don’t do the place justice. We stayed in Number 2 and the accommodation is amazing, stylish, contemporary but most importantly warm!  which is important at the end of February.  We loved the little touches, pint of milk and freshly ground coffee.  You can see the love and money that has been put into the restoration of the barns and main house. Moira couldn’t have been more helpful – and we know we’ve found the perfect Cornish Getaway. We’ll be back. Catherine and Paul

Brilliant time

Just a brilliant time in brilliant house and cottage and will be back soon. PS weather indescribable!

A joy to stay

I was on a business trip (unfortunately!) rather than a holiday - but it was a joy to have this beautiful, cosy cottage as a base, to be able to enjoy all home comforts was amazing - I will certainly be recommending to all my colleagues from the NHS

A perfect Christmas

We had a brilliant Christmas at the Green. Perfect house, perfect size and perfect location. It was exactly what we were looking for and everyone loved the place. Thank you so much for all your help. We had one of the best Christmas’s ever. With very best wishes and a HAPPY NEW YEAR to you all, Rob

Everything felt brand new

Everything felt brand new! Had anyone been here before me? Lovely cottage in fantastic surroundings. The staff I met were very friendly

The baby pack supplied was very helpful

We stayed at The Green for a short break with our toddler and baby. The cottage was beautifully decorated inside and to a very high standard. The baby pack had everything you could possibly need, they even bought an extra booster seat for us. We had meals from their delivery service which were fresh and very tasty. Our children enjoyed the playground and orchard.The location is a bit out of the way, but we did day trips everyday to interesting locations and beaches

Peaceful location

The peaceful location of the cottage was the added bonus, it lived up to its 5* description, we would defiantly recommend you to others

Well kept gardens

We really enjoyed the beautiful, well kept gardens.  The views from our balcony are wonderful. The cottage was well equipped and comfortable.  We’ve had a really good holiday thank you.

Easy access to the beautiful grounds

Just home from a wonderful week at The Green. We stayed in cottage number 5. The children loved the easy access to the beautiful grounds & we enjoyed a few BBQ’s after bed time taking in the wonderful view. Managed to visit plenty of Cornish gems too. Will most definitely be returning soon

We felt welcomed and appreciated

We felt very welcomed and appreciated at The Green. Everything was spotless and little touches like milk and coffee were a wonderful surprise. We loved the setting and the peace and quiet and how clean the cottage was.  The information pack was incredibly useful. You have earned every one of your 5 stars. We will recommend you to all our friends and family and intend to come back ourselves. It really is lovely here! It lived up to our expectations and the photos on your website. Absolutely 10/10 - the best self catering we have ever stayed in.

Magical and special

Thank you so much for our amazing time here. We’ve had such a great time, it was very magical and Special.

Amazing holiday

Beautiful House in a Fantastic location. Amazing holiday! Thank you very much

Beautifully decorated

Would definately recommend this house to any one. It is Beautifully decorated and the bedrooms are very comfortable and cosy. Great holiday
Thank You

Quiet country locations

Quiet country location with fine views, very pleasantly surprised with cottages and facilities, we would strongly recommend

Comfortable and clean

We spent a very comfortable and relaxing short break (Mon-Fri) at The Green at the end of June with our dogs. Our cottage (No 2) was extremely comfortable and clean, with all the facilities needed and with just the two of us in the two bedroom cottage (plus dogs) there was plenty of room. Patio doors opened straight out onto the large lawn, where rabbits played right outside. I guess we were spoiled being the only people staying that week, so we had the grounds to ourselves, but there is plenty of room to find some quiet spots if it’s busier. I did find the memory foam mattress a little uncomfortable - they made me feel rather hot and sticky on the warm nights and I had to sleep without the duvet.

We had lovely weather, and had some great walks in and around Bodmin Moor. A walk along the Camel Trail to Padstow, and a train trip into Looe from Liskeard were also great fun. It was a 5 minute drive to Upton Cross for the nearest shop, where we got some local farm produce, milk and papers in the morning. Not fussed about the pub in Upton Cross, new managers put us in the games room as we had our dogs, but much more welcoming in the Rila Mill pub, which is walking distance away. We will be recommending The Green to our friends.

The most relaxing break

Within 10 minutes of arriving at The Green we were sitting on the balcony of our cottage with a glass of wine enjoying the absolute peace and the view, not often you feel so relaxed so quickly. Its location near Bodmin Moor is perfect for exploring the surrounding area.

We stayed in cottage number 4, it has literally everything you would need and more. Simple touches in the kitchen like jars of teabags, coffee (and a cafetiere), milk on arrival were really welcome and the kitchen was so well stocked that you really wanted for nothing. In the living area, books, dvds and boardgames along with lots of information were provided. The high beamed ceilings added the wow factor along with the modern, tasteful décor. We were childishly impressed with the amplifier that allowed you to plug in your ipod and the music be played into all rooms separately! Our son and his friend loved the play park and especially the hammock.

Normally when I go away I have trouble sleeping but the bed was so comfortable that this wasn’t the case here.

We had the best, most relaxing long weekend we’ve had in years and would highly recommend staying at The Green.

Beautiful accommodation and setting

What a fantastic place, the accommodation is beautiful and the setting even more so. We have had a wonderful and relaxing break and will recommend to everyone we know!
Thank you

Great cottage

Great cottage with all the essentials we needed for a peaceful and relaxing stay. Thanks for your welcome early on in the visit too. smile

A warm welcome and relaxing stay

Great cottage with all the essentials we needed for a peaceful and relaxing stay. Thanks for your welcome early on in the visit too. smile

Perfectly located

Myself, my partner and 2 boys age 5 years and the other 6 months had a wonderful time in Cottage number 2. It was so peaceful and relaxing and had everything we needed. The location is so tranquil, the stroll to the local pub is perfect for a pre evening meal distraction and The Green is perfectly located for surrounding attractions of both walks or a trip to the  seaside in Looe. I am looking forward to going again.

Lots of lovely local restaurants and pubs

Fantastic cottage everything you need and more. Had a really good holiday would like to come back and bring the children. Visited the Camel trail (bit wet) but had a great time. Ate at some lovely pubs and restaurants managed to get in to Jamie Oliver’s 15 one day and had a superb meal. Met the neighbour below the green and he recommended a few places and was really helpful as well.  Thank you very much.

You have thought of everything

Excellent cottage – you have thought of everything and its beautifully presented. Did several good walks – Golitha Falls (your recommendation, many thanks) and Cardinham Woods particularly good for dogs.  We have had a great holiday, made so much better by having such a clean and cosy base, and we hope to be able to come back next year and see all the things we missed this time around.

Stunning early morning views

We stayed in Cottage 2 which was a beautiful 2 bedroomed converted barn. It had all the modern amenities we needed. The grounds were lovely and the views across the valley early in the morning were stunning. There is a wildlife pond with resident ducks too. Easy walks to local pubs that served good beer and food. Dog friendly accomodation and local pubs meant our 4 legged friend could holiday with us. The only down side was a noisy owl who decided to make the tree outside the bedroom his roosting spot!!

The house is gorgeous

Loved It!

Amazing, the house is gorgeous had a great mid week break just what we wanted. ideal for an fab girly trip away.


A relaxing break

We have had a relaxing break in a beautiful cottage. The Location is a peaceful (apart from the Owls!) and beautifully, looked after. We enjoyed great pub food at the dog friendly Caradon Inn in Upton Cross – just walkable if you take a torch.  A Huge thank you. ☺

A pleasant and easy stay

Thank you for making our stay so pleasant and easy. We have all enjoyed our stay here and were hoping to be able to visit again for our next photography visit to Cornwall

Another great stay

Another great stay at the green. Shame it was too short. Thank you to the Green Team, you are making this place warm and friendly holiday home. All the best!


Everything we needed

Thank you for a fantastic 2 weeks. We had some super days on the beach! ☺ Lots of walking, eating and drinking, house very well equipped. Everything we needed. Thank you!!!

The kids loved the space

Nicely kept apartment, kids loved the open space and playground. Great base to explore N-S-E-W

Lots to see and do

What a wonderful place – a real home from home. Very cosy at night even in summer. Lots to see and do. Loved the beds – very comfy would defo come again!

A pleasure to stay here

We have loved every minute. The Peace and quiet, the cottage is so well equipped and the free Wi-Fi has made our lives much easier. It has been a pleasure to stay here and we will be back. ☺

Lovely cottage, amazing location, great service

Lovely cottage, amazing location, great service!

I stayed at No.5 The Green, Cornwall with my fiancé and 4 other friends in March 2012. Apart from being blessed by perhaps the one week of sunshine we’ve had so far this year, we were extremely pleased with the fantastic accommodation that awaited us.

No.5 on the ground floor of the old cheese farm block, was beautifully presented. Everything you need was there. Pots, pans, salt, pepper, DVD’s, books, everything AND the kitchen sink!

The bedrooms were clean and fresh, with lots of light. There was a special sound system, which meant you could play music from the living room and listen to it whilst in the bath!

My one and only VERY minor flaw was that the beds were a bit too soft for me. Most of our party had no issues with this though, it must just be my bad back needing a very firm bed!

The service from Moira, the owner, from the start was exceptional. It felt as if nothing was too much. I can’t thank Moira enough for such an excellent stay!

We visited with the view of booking The Green for our wedding next year and knew from the start that it was the perfect place for our Big Day.
There is a beautiful wooden arbour outside with views across the valley, under which you can get married, should the day be sunny (fingers crossed!). There is also a light, spacious reception room that will fit a moderate sized wedding party.
An on site kitchen area is next to this large room, so catering is not a problem.

There is a fantastic beauty therapist available who does home calls, called Louise. We booked her for a few massages and she worked wonders on my afore mentioned bad back! We will be booking her again when we next come to stay!

The Green is a beautiful place, very reasonably priced, in a magnificent area. I can’t recommend it highly enough!

Would recommend without hesitation

The House - Perfect For A Large Group

We (18 in total) rented The House (and Number 5) in June 2012. Beautiful properties, gorgeous decor and very well equipped. The ages of our group ranged from 5 - 85. The downstairs bathroom and bedroom is ideal for an older guest or one with mobility limitations. The kitchen/dining room is absolutely perfect for all getting together for breakfasts and evening meals and we had many a late night simply chatting round the huge table with a few drinks. There are enough bathrooms that noone needed to wait for a shower etc in the mornings and the fridge was ample size to stock our wine and beer, and of course some food items.
I cannot think of anything that is lacking from the properties, the owners have put a great deal of thought and effort in to making this a real home from home experience where you do not feel you have left anything behind. We met Moira on the first day; she was very friendly and gave us several suggestions on what we could do whilst there, and there is a wonderful information book in the properties with plenty of helpful, informative advice.
We ate at the Manor House (in the village) on 3 occasions; a) it was in walking distance which was a great bonus for many of the party b) the food was really VERY good and c) the staff were very friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend a visit.
Had trips out to Port Isaac, Fowey, Tintagel and Looe. We also visited the UK’s longest zip wire which is 50m and 490m long over a lake. Must try!! Despite the weather being absolutely awful we all had a very pleasant holiday. Would recommend The Green without hesitation.


Stunning location

Stunning Location

Wonderful few days away, staying in cottage number 3. Lovely decor, stunning views, very clean and well equipped. We stayed with a 6 month old and 3 year old and the cottage suited us well, although I think 4 adults may find it a little cosy. There are steps to the first floor entrance and 2 small internal steps so not well suited to those not steady on their feet. There is a baby pack available with lots of extras (back pack, blender, toys) to borrow free of charge, although you need to book this early, we missed out on many items as they were already booked during our stay. We also tried out the food delivery service which was really convenient, catered for special diets and very tasty. The little walk to the pond and river and the childrens play area were a lovely extra too.

Great to get together

Family of 18 very pleased with accommodation the only thing that spoilt a very happy family reunion was the absolutely diabolical weather. We had one reasonably nice day nevertheless. It was very enjoyable and nice to be all-together.  Thank you.

Wonderful cottage, landscape and silence

It was a perfect time! Wonderful Cottage, landscape and silence – last but not least the playground was lovely for our four-year-old son. Thanks a lot and see you soon! ☺☺

Great spot for exploring

We really enjoyed our stay, the cottage is lovely and in a great spot for exploring. We’d recommend it to friends and family. Loved having speakers in every room

Fantastic accommodation

Fantastic accommodation – loved the décor, weather variable!! Would recommend Padstow, Boscastle, Cotehele and the Springer Spaniel Pub

Perfect cottage in amazing area

We just spent the weekend in cottage 1. Just emailing to say we had a lovely time. The cottage was perfect and the area is amazing. We’ll definitely be back and we’ve told our friends and family they should come stay with you aswell.
Thanks very much.

Relaxing time

Lovey relaxing time here. Weather was kind. Cottage was Perfect, lovely furnishings & surroundings beautiful

A great find

Wow, what a great find this place is, it feels like home but with better views, mum I and Coco stayed for 5 nights in number 2 cottage, we had the loveliest time together, we are so impressed and can’t wait to plan another vacation!

So much to do in the area

We have had a great week the cottage is lovely. Things we have done – Camel Trail cycling – hired from Bodmin bikes – very new bikes. Padstow took an hour to get there but well worth it.  Slot machines at Looe. Lovely lunch at the Courtyard down an alleyway.  Polperro – lovely Cornish fishing village. Great walks from the cottage. Family activity day at Porthpean Outdoor Education Center booked via Cornwall Activ8 website – best day!

Felt at ease here

Romantic cottage in Cornwall - Our first visit to Cornwall and what a great one it was. Fantastic accommodation, great views, and we were so lucky to have amazing hot weather.

The cottage is absolutely stunning and we felt at ease here. It was also lovely to know that we could call Moira if we needed anything although everything was covered.

The location was great to get around Cornwall and we had a lovely day at Looe beach. We also visited the Adrenalin Quarry to go down the Zip Wire which was so much fun. Will definatley come back with the kids next time!

Everything we were looking for

We were looking for a little traditional looking place….with high standards….peace and quiet….to get away for a week.

We found all of that here at The Green.

This small group of high spec cottages have been done really well…(even in our cute little cottage for two we had dishwasher / washing machine etc)...under floor heating throughout…..good bathroom with full size bath & shower…nice linens.

Owners checked in on us to make sure we were ok…...and also helped out by taking in some birthday flowers that were delivered.

The only noise we had at night was a bit of a “hoot off”....between a couple of owls for a few mins as darkness fell!

The location was perfect for our aim of rediscovering many of our old childhood beach holiday haunts on both the north and south coasts….plus lots of great countryside in between.

Liskard is only a few miles drive away for all normal requirements….supermarkets….banks….general small high street stuff.

In the village close by (walk-able either down the lanes or across the field) there is a pub Manor House that serves food also.

Would recommend if your looking for a good standard in this location.

A relaxing time

We had a wonderful time in this perfect cottage. We don’t want to go home and are looking forward to coming back soon! Thank you for such a relaxing time.

Perfect cottage

We have had a lovely stay. The cottage was perfect. We had everything we needed. Can’t wait to come back. See you soon!!!

Your Holiday Planner February 2012 by Elaine Swift

Imagine waking up each morning in peaceful tranquillity, and watching the sun emerge from a bright line on the horizon to light up the sky as day breaks. Well, that’s exactly what we did from the balcony of our cottage at The Green, Cornwall in February.

The Green is a former cheese farm standing in 14-acres of beautiful grounds on the edge of Bodmin Moor. It’s been stylishly converted into six cottages and there’s also a lovely house that sleeps 12 which stands in its own small garden.

Everything about The Green has been well thought through, from the car park that stands away from the properties, to the cottages themselves.

What you’ll find inside

We loved the modern, stylish interior with its attention to detail and good quality furnishings. The high, vaulted ceiling in the main living room creates a lovely spacious feeling. There are wooden floorboards throughout which not only look good, they’re easy to keep clean, so you don’t have too worry too much about your muddy wellies.

Our cottage had a kitchenette in the main living space equipped with good quality, matching appliances – a nice change from the mishmash of oddments you find in many self-catering cottages!

We had two bedrooms – a double and a twin – both tastefully and minimally decorated. And I have to mention the mattress and duvet which were quite possibly the most comfortable I’ve ever experienced!

The underfloor heating was lovely and warm all the time, especially considering the height of the ceiling in the living room and the temperature outside.

There are some nice teccie features too: the wi-fi couldn’t be easier to access, and you can connect your iPod to the audio system – there are even speakers in the bathroom with a control switch outside.

Explore the grounds

I can well imagine it would be a great place to stay as a family or with a group of friends. Exploring the extensive grounds is a must – there’s even a small lake in the woods. There’s a children’s playground away from the cottages and house next to an orchard, and a large area of green in front of the properties where you can relax.


Not just for holiday-makers

It’s the ideal venue for a wedding too and the owners have built a fabulous glass fronted space, which is flooded with natural light, in which ceremonies can take place. There’s also a romantic wooden arbour overlooking the valley for couples who want to tie the knot outside.

It’s so secluded and peaceful that I can also imagine it being perfect for a retreat or for corporate events such as off-site meetings when a bit concentrated thinking time is needed.

Things to do in the area

There’s lots to do in the area. Minions, from where you can walk to the mysterious Cheesewring rock formation on Bodmin Moor, is about 10 minutes by car. It’s walkable from The Green if you’re feeling energetic.

The coast is within easy reach too with Looe only 11 miles away. Nearest town is Liskeard which is OK and Lostwithiel is worth a visit for its antique shops.

The tiny village of Upton Cross is just a stroll away. There is a pub in the village but I can’t recommend the food as we didn’t eat there.

Green credentials

We were pleased to discover that The Green isn’t just green by name. It has its own water sources and the cottages use renewable, ground source heat. All accommodation is fitted with efficient, low-consumption appliances, and the owners use eco cleaning products and encourage as much recycling as possible.

Outside, the well-managed grounds encourage biodiversity.

The Green is so secluded you really do feel you’re in the middle of nowhere – a very beautiful, tranquil nowhere where you can relax and forget about the world outside for a few days.

Everything for babies provided

I have just spent the last few days in Cottage Number 5 and I couldn’t of found a more perfect cottage for my family break. We find it quite hard to go away with twins and often find we have to pay the price to get extra room this was not the case at the green. Firstly the cottage was beautiful, well-equipped warm and an ideal living space for families with little ones. I was able to request a cot, buggy toys and other necessities that every one year old needs, and un like other places I have stayed they were able to provide two of most things which means I could make more room in the car for the little ones. We found the Staff to be very helpful and informative in planning child friendly days out. I came last year with friends and couldn’t wait to come back and my returning visit did not disappoint. We will all be back

Everything and more

Perfect location to celebrate my 30th birthday. The House was everything and more than we expected and it was kitted out with top quality furniture and equipment. Would love to come back!

We want to live here!

Beautiful home, we all want to live here! Fab family 70th birthday party. 12 adults, 4 kids and 1 baby. Something for everyone. Need to come back. Not enough time x

Clean and cosy

Excellent cottage - you’ve thought of everything and it is beautifully presented. Did several good walks - Golitha Falls (your recommendation, many thanks) and Cardinham Woods. We’ve had a great holiday made so much better by having such a clean and cosy base and we hope to be able to come back next year to see all the things we missed this time around.

Lovely mini holiday

A lovely mini hol in this very beautiful place. Weather - Sat outside in the sun for breakfast - listened to very heavy wind and rain - glorious sunrise on our last morning. Sam’s on the Beach’ Polkerris was great - 2nd visit. Lovely walk on Bodmin Moor - standing stones before the rain started!! Port Issac in the sun - Sea Blue. Wow!!

Thoughtful touches

We really appreciated such a clean cottage and all the thoughtful touches (sugar, coffee, tea, milk, soap, dishwasher tablets etc.) thank you! For us ice skating at the Eden Project and a fantastic last sunny day at Watergate Bay were the highlights. The latter took about an hour to get to and it was well worth it - 2 grown ups, 2 children and a dog happily occupied all day. Will be back!

Friendly and welcoming

A little piece of heaven!

The cottage is beautiful and the owners friendly and welcoming. Location is perfect for peace and exploring. Renovation has been really tasteful. The whole place feels cosy and homely. Somewhere you would want go back to.

Great location

What a fab week away. Best equipped cottage we have stayed in. Great central location for exploring Cornwall. Definitely recommend Polperro and Fowey for picture postcard days out.

Ticks every box

Perfect, ticks every single box!

Couldn’t have asked for better accomodation, we stayed in No.5 for a week and there is nothing at all that was amiss. Stunning views from the panoramic folding doors and excellent facilities which were modern, immaculate and very tastefully decorated. A warm welcome and advice were at hand from Moira and the information about places to visit and things to do was great. The surrounding woodland walks and orchard were a delight for our dog and the local pub just a few minutes walk away was welcoming and dog friendly too. Its an excellent base from which to explore Cornwall. We would most definately return and stay here, all the cottages looked inviting yet remain quite private for meals/BBQ’s outside etc. Thoroughly pleased with our holiday.

Another great holiday

This is our second visit here and we still found plenty to see. We had a very enjoyable day at Cotehele (NT) - where it is possible to buy lots of lovely crafts. We recommend the Crows Nest - the food is great. The cottage is more homely than last year and there are some lovely pictures on the website. Another great holiday!!!


Stunning Stuff. Moira and Zoe made it so easy for us to relax. Spotting wild horses on Bodmin Moor, Sam’s restaurant in Fowey and Rick Stein’s grilled fish and chips in Padstow to name a few highlights. Oh and how can we forget the sparkling wines at Camel Valley!!


Week at @thegreencornwal - one word. Amazing! If u haven’t been, go, if you have been. Book again!

Everything we needed

We had the best time. The cottage has everything we needed and we loved the grounds - especially the rabbits and squirrels. Stunning beaches for the dogs. Lansallos and Mawgan Porth are a must. Loved Padstow and Charlestown was very interesting. Moira has been very kind and helpful we will recommend!

It’s perfect

Thank-you so, so much! It is perfect here. Thank-you.

Lovely cottage

Lovely cottage, great views. Fantastic meal in Tapenades in Liskeard. We’ll definitely be back!

Exactly what we wanted

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here! The cottage was exactly what we wanted in a home away from home. We have, over the week, ventured to Padstow, The Eden Project, The Lost Gardens of Heligan, Camel Valley Vineyard, Fowey, Jamie’s 15 and many more lovely places and will definitely be back to Cornwall.

Enjoyed the peace

I stayed at No 1, The Green in August / September 2011. I was looking for comfort, quiet and reflection and found these in abundance. The village of Rilla Mill was friendly, the setting of The Green itself beautifully tended and the cottage finished to an extremely high standard. The consideration given to the layout of the cottage in which I stayed, was very impressive. Such good use of space ensured that the place always felt airy. I was especially pleased with the level of cleanliness – so often an issue in holiday properties. No 1 was spotless and felt fresh. Management felt accessible without seeming in any way overbearing. I had exactly the experience I had hoped for and I’m sure I will return to enjoy again the pleasure of peace at The Green.

Beautiful surrounding grounds and cottage

Had a great time, despite the rain. Plenty of lovely areas around to visit. Cottage and surrounding grounds are lovely - so peaceful! everything we needed was provided, and it has been a very comfortable place to stay. With a little one we didn’t make much use of the local pub/restaurant, though we did brave it on our last night, and it was worth it. Watching the wildlife was great - open your windows to rabbits and occasionally a woodpecker. Also there are a pair of falcons to be seen (and heard) circling overhead. Owls and bats at night too. Particularly liked St Ives but Fowey and Padstow are worth a visit too. Eden is excellent.

Ideal for children

Wonderful accommodation, friendly owner

We stumbled across The Green, Cornwall at the last minute and when we saw the photos really wanted to book. When we arrived we were not disappointed. The accommodation was tastefully decorated and had everything a family with 3 children (3 years, 1 year, 3 months) could want. The open plan arrangement made it ideal for the kids to play in the cottage whilst keeping a watchful eye on them when making breakfast. There was a travel cot and plastic plates, cutlery and cups for the kids. For those wanting to eat in the cottage the kitchen was well stocked with utensils, pots and pans etc. The peaceful location and open grass areas were safe for the children to play out on as cars pack 50 yards away in the parking area. The childrens play area with swings and slide was a hit with the little ones. Nice touches: the free Wifi, the copy of the Cornwall/Devon Lonely Planet guide which was useful during the stay,the information pack with many suggestions for things to do/places to eat in many locations in Cornwall, become a facebook friend of The Green, as the owner regular posts fairs, plays, musical events etc happening that day. On a final note the owner was often around on-site and was extremely friendly, helpful and knowledgable of the local area.

Home from home

What a home from home! One of the best self catering apartments we have ever stayed in. Everything was spotless, beautiful decor and every need anticipated. Only downside was that we didn’t stay longer.

Would recommend

An excellent cottage would recommend

We stayed in cottage three recently, the location and views from the cottage are excellent. The furnishing and decor of the cottage are stylish and practical with everything you would need for your holiday including the bedding and towels. The kitchen was equipped with almost everything you need ( no colander) and was well designed. Overall we were impressed and would recommend it, the only criticism I would have is the website does not make it clear the only access to the cottage is up 14 steps and is part of a complex with two other cottages

(We’ve modified the website and replaced the colander)

Elegant and beautiful

This is the most elegant beautiful place we have stayed in. It has every thing you could ever need and more. The house is spacious and all the bathrooms are really handy for the 11 of us!!!!

We felt very welcome

We came here on a recommendation and we have not been disappointed. The cottage is lovely and had everything we needed, we felt very welcome. The location is perfect for days out. We wouldn’t hesitate to come back and will be happy to recommend it. Thank you!

Pleasantly surprised

Amazing holiday accommodationLast summer we stayed in cottage 3 and as the property was new on the Internet, there were no reviews, so we did not know what to expect. We were pleasantly surprised at how lovely the cottage was. Charming, tastefully decorated, modern, comfortable and fully equipped. Loved the original features they retained such as the slate walls and wood beams. The bathroom was modern, clean; the kitchen did not lack anything. The owners have done a lot of work since, adding a kid’s playground etc. The outside area is tranquil, green countryside, with rabbits hopping everywhere at dusk. We found it relaxing to come to the cottage at night after having a hectic day sightseeing in Cornwall. I can not remember the name of the local pub, in the nearest village, but the food was great. We would certainly return next year. A thoroughly enjoyable holiday experience.

Stunning cottage

Stunning cottage. We will be back The cottage was as beautifully finished as shown on the website. Beams, wooden floors and lots of gadgets like underfloor heating, ipod connection, speakers in every room. Really beautiful location with great views of the moors. Kids loved exploring the woodland walk, river and lake area and the playground was a hit. A good local pub to walk to was a real bonus. Trips to the Eden project and Padstow and some sunshine! Moira, the owner couldn’t have been more helpful. The Green is a very chilled place and its only their first season open. The place was a real find. We will be back!

We will be back

Amazing! We will be back This cottage was not only beautiful but well equipped, they had everything I needed including a buggy, which was great one less thing I needed to pack. The grounds were lovely and the children loved being able to run around in the meadow and the play equipment was a big hit. Thank you so much you made our stay magical and your advice on toddler friendly days out was great. Can’t wait to come back.

In total awe

Have just returned from a fabulous weekend at The House. We all had an amazing time the house is beautiful, us 8 girls were in awe of the decor and cleanliness and modern touch. We felt like we were living in luxury for those few days. All would love to return, we were saying that within minutes of arriving and still feel that way! Thanks Moira

Amazing spot for stargazing

Contents in cottage to a high standard, plenty of parking. Owner available by phone if required. Added bonus was that there was no light pollution - amazing views of stars on a clear night! Pub walkable.
