Guest Comments

A lot of our guests prefer to write their comments in the property guest books. Here’s a snapshot of what they say.  There are many more and most guests leave some great suggestions of places to go and things to do, so the books are becoming a very useful guide for future guests too.

This is just a small snapshot……there are more on our Facebook page

Karrek Lodge is a credit to you and is one of the nicest place we have stayed in.  The lodge is ideally situated so we could get to lots of places we wanted to visit and we used the facilities most nights which we really enjoyed, especially my granddaughter.  Thank you so much again and we hope to come back soon.

LogoColorNoTextWe really enjoyed our stay at Karrek Lodge. Thankyou! We had a party of 2 adults and 5 children and felt the house to be well equipped for all our needs.  Comfy beds, a well equipped kitchen and lovely hot showers.  The kids enjoyed the games and DVD’s too.  Location really good. Would definitely come back again.  We love Cornwall!

A comfortable and well equipped house.  Immaculately clean which is very important!  We loved the cream tea.  A great base for exploring beaches and walking – lots of fresh air.

Thank you!

Over 10 days makes a place feel like home.  This little home was a gift, thankyou.  We walked and walked over hills and dales, it was sublime.  We walked to St Ives many times.  What a beautiful town.  We ate like there was no tomorrow (thank you for exposing us to clotted cream, we are now devoted to it 🙂 ) and most importantly we sway all the time.  It didn’t matter that it rained every day, it was so amazing.

Thank you

Thankyou for the loan of your lovely cottage.  We have had a fantastic week.  we tried to pack in as much as possible whilst also recharging our batteries – Carbis Bay was great for body boarding and wave jumping, we also cycled from Wadebridge to Padstow.  St Michaels Mount was fun, especially getting our feet wet as we walked back to land and the tide was coming in.  The clubhouse and facilities are amazing too, with such friendly staff.  Our boys aged 9 & 10 loved the playground, the pool and crazy golf and the shop was a huge hit too.  I think their takings might be down after we leave 🙂

We will be back

Love the Sharples

Thank you for a wonderful holiday – we have really enjoyed staying at the cottage.  Its a perfect base for a great holiday.  Beautifully furnished and equipped with everything you need and in a lovely setting.

The on-site facilities were great and the staff were friendly and helpful.  We’ve had great days out.  St Ives, Hayle Towans beach, Paradise Park, The seal sanctuary, Healeys Cyder Farm and the chocolate factory & craft centre at Mullion – they were all fun for all the family.

Than you for the recommendations of where to eat – Mr B’s Ice-creams were delicious, both Philps & Warrens pasties went down a treat and we had a reasonable but enjoyable meal at the watermill this evening.  Fantastic!

Thanks for a great holiday!

Had a fantastic week at Strawberry Cottage.  Managed to pack in quite a lot including Paradise Park (great for the little ones), Eden Project and Penwith pitch and putt.  Fortunately we had a brilliant week weather wise so visited St Ives, Hayle and Godrevy beaches – all very beautiful and picturesque.  Cottage itself was a great base and well equipped.   However parking was an issue on a couple of days and we had to park at the top of the car park.

Thanks for a great holiday.  Welcome pack was also a great idea !

We had a lovely holiday.  We can recommend Mr B’s Ice-cream parlour in Hayle.  The beach in Hayle is superb and if you want a bodyboard Hayle seemed the best price.  Lands End was a great place to visit.  Our children (9+ 12) really enjoyed the Eden Project as well.

Thank you for a wonderful holiday.  We hope to come back again

Had a lovely week – Strawberry Cottage is a real home from home.  The welcome gift was a lovely surprise and just what we needed after our long journey from York.  We have stayed at Tolroy a couple of times before when our boys were children but strawberry cottage exceeds anything we have had before.  Thank you for the loan of it, we would love to come back again.

We have been to Cornwall on a number of occasions, our daughter booked this break for a family get together so wasn’t sure what to expect.  The cottage was well maintained and the welcome addition of a cream tea and milk in the fridge was a surprise.  The cottage was excellent value for money.  The holiday park facilities were a little dated but the staff were very friendly and helpful.

Overall happy campers!!

  3. One 2 Eleven soft play perfect for a rainy day 🙂
  4. Paradise Park is pricey but good fun for the kids

Love our accommodation! Comfy beds, perfect position, very clean.  Thanks for a fab holiday

A lovely place to stay that’s home from home.  Bed very clean and comfortable.  Lovely to have a dishwasher and thank you for leaving us cream tea and things to make a drink.  Hope to come back same week next year.  We left you a little present to say thankyou!

Enjoyed a lovely holiday.  Great cottage, well equipped, everything we needed as a family.

Had some great days out at Eden project – go on a sunny day as will be quieter, take packed lunch as food is very expensive.  St Michaels Mount lovely day, watch out for the tide tables.  Godrevey beach and Carbis Bay were our favourite beaches.  Went for dinner at Salt restaurant in Hayle, good food but a little expensive.  Also had fish and chips from Sanders.  Did eat in some nights with no problems, everything we needed.

On site kids enjoyed the swimming pool, table tennis, tennis, and pitch & putt.

Thanks for a lovely stay

Our stay at Strawberry Cottage has been amazing.  It makes a great base for days out.  The welcome package was a lovely surprise.  Eden project, seaside for surfing and go-karting are really good and fantastic place to go and all in close vicinity.  We will recommend this cottage to all of my friends.

Thankyou

Very well thought out cottage, high spec.  Children glad to see dishwasher as their job is normally to wash and dry pots on holiday.  John Fowler  – good base but very expensive!  Lovely weather and lovely beaches and to top it all, a magnificent thunder storm!!!  Would recommend beaches in Hayle, which could be missed for more well known ones.

After an 11 hour journey down, the tea and scones were a lovely treat.  Had a great week, so much to do, really enjoyed learning to surf and go-karting, kids loved the bingo at the clubhouse.

Cottage had everything we needed.  We did find the double bed uncomfortable.

We had a great holiday, lots of memories made.

Would definitely return again

A really great location for exploring this part of Cornwall.  Ideal for young children and very close to excellent beaches.  The sea was not cold for this time of the year and we enjoyed the swimming pool.  we would recomend the cottage to others.

Lovely warm and cosy cottage.  Kids enjoyed Foxy club and the swimming pool.

We all enjoyed the beaches.  All were stunning.

Rainy days with Children, try one2eleven near Sainsbury’s in Helston for brilliant soft play.

Flambards good but not at full price, so get the vouchers.

A fab holiday 🙂

A great family cottage in the right place to visit Cornwall and all that it has to offer.  From small quaint coves to town centres.  St Ives is a must day time or evening walk.  If doing it by day, best to do it by train (park and ride from Lelant Saltings).

Family holiday has been enjoyed by all. …….just beware of the seagulls and your food!!!

Thanks for sharing your cottage with us and allowing us to make family memories for our holiday in 2013 🙂
