Perfect for a Family Christmas in lovely Lerryn in a cosy cottage.  Very impressed.  Very cosy and wonderfully equipped, we cooked an entire roast for Christmas! [December 2017]

Brilliant. Thank you. [October 2017]

Thank you Rob & Lin for a wonderful stay in Puddleduck Cottage - even the weather was kind to us [September 2017]

We had an amazing time. Loved all we visited, Lanhydrock, Eden, Lost Gardens of Heligan, Mevagissey, Padstow, Fowey and Port Isaac as well as lovely Lerryn and walks along the river. Thank you again for letting us stay in your cottage – it really has everything you could possibly need. [SEPTEMBER 2017]

Quaint cottage, well equipped and comfortable. Everything we needed was at hand or a quick message away. We liked our location. Very pretty area. Thanks! [AUGUST 2017]

We spent a week in this lovely cottage which comfortably slept 8. It was great that everything we needed was there, the owners are friendly and very helpful. We didn’t get onto the river but loved having access to a garden with play equipment for the children. Lerryn is a perfect spot to use as a base for Fowey, St Austell and further afield. Highly recommended. We should have stayed longer. Next year…... [JULY 2017]

We all had a wonderful time at the cottage and in the boat, Lerryn is a very special and magical place, we all felt we had gone back in time and thoroughly relaxed and unwound. We were enchanted with the cottage, and thank you for all the little extras. Would love to return some time. [MAY 2017]

Happy! The property was cosy, made us feel like home……the garden was lovely, had a little bbq as well….overall really satisfied with the property. [APRIL 2017]

This cottage is beautiful! We had such a lovely, fantastic time here. It really felt like home – view is wonderful + the area & the garden! Many thanks. [APRIL 2017]

Thank you. We had a lovely time. Your house was spotless and very well equipped. I am very jealous of the beautiful location. I live in a lovely part of the Cotswolds, rolling hills and pretty villages, but Lerryn is another thing! All the water birds, and the total tranquillity that pervades the area. We will be back. [MARCH 2017]

Lovely Cottage, fabulous location, friendly locals, great pub.  Had fun on the river in the boat and didn’t sink!  Great walk along the river although a bit slippery (3 out of 8 fell over!)  Fab food from the local shop.  Can’t fault anything! Thank you Lin & Rob. [OCTOBER 2016]

Great location, lovely cottage and have loved being in “BRIGADOON” for a week.  People very friendly.  Thanks. [SEPTEMBER 2016]  

We have much enjoyed our week in your perfectly located cottage (lucky with the weather).  Very handy having shop and pub very near, both of which we have used.  Many thanks!  [SEPTEMBER 2016]  

A lovely week in gorgeous, peaceful Lerryn.  Puddleduck Cottage was a cosy retreat from which to explore the local area and return to boats, badminton and the barbeque.  Lovely garden, a real treasure!.  [AUGUST 2016]

Lovely accommodation with comfy beds!  Had great fun on the rowing boat.  Enjoyed food and pool at the Ship Inn and the shop very handy – yummy ice cream.  Great trips out to Fowey, St Mawes, Polperro and Mevagissey.  Thanks! [AUGUST 2016]

Puddleduck is heaven on earth, for the children and the adults. [JULY 2016]

Rob & Lin were wonderful hosts as they gave us instructions on how to arrive and gain access to the property despite us calling them twice.  They even came to check on us to make sure everything was fine and to answer any of our queries.  They also took the trouble to send us a list of events that were happening in Cornwall during our stay.  The cottage was clean and cosy, the garden was a wonderful area to chill, have a BBQ and play games that were provided there.  There was sufficient information provided in the cottage on where to go, eat, supermarket locations etc.  Overall, we had a good stay and everyone there was really friendly and welcoming.  Thank you very much.  [JUNE 2016]

Thank you, we did have a great stay.  It’s such a beautiful setting and your cottage is lovely.  Thank you for making us feel at home and for your kindness in leaving us milk in the fridge and flowers on the table.  Thank you for allowing us to use your boat as well, our trips out were a real highlight of the holiday.  With very best wishes.  [JUNE 2016]

Rob & Lin met us on arrival and made us feel very welcome, they even provided perfect weather.  The cottage & garden was a perfect getaway to relax, chill out and spend time together.  Exceeded all our expectations for a holiday cottage. [MAY 2016]

You have provided the most fabulous cottage, so surprised at how spacious the accommodation is. We used all local facilities and travelled to Lands End and other beautiful places. Only wish we could have stayed longer. Hopefully there will be a slot next year for us to stay again.

Wonderful, like home from home, clean and well provisioned. Great having extra loo. Shame we never got to use the boat. Summer House and garden a great hit with all. Would defo recommend. Thank you.
August 2015

Thank you for a lovely cottage. Everything was spotless. The rowing boat was a great experience. The teenagers appreciated the superfast WiFi! Highly recommended.

Thank you for this beautiful cottage. We really enjoyed it. We are all gonna miss this place so much. The boat was fun!

Lerryn is a lovely small and quiet village next to the river. The cottage was well equipped with lots of information on local activities. We only stayed 4 nights and would love to have stayed longer.
June 2015

Thank you for a wonderful stay. We visited The Wingz Bird Sanctuary near Par, which was excellent. We enjoyed the walks along the river and playing in the garden.

We’ve had a lovely time in the cottage. It’s the second time we’ve stayed here. Has everything you need and very friendly people.

A wonderful week with plenty of beachcombing, lovely walks in the woods and getting engaged. A truly special week.
February 2015

We had a lovely time at the cottage, it was spotless and homely. We went to the Eden Project and into towns like Fowey. We had everything we needed and hope to be back soon.
November 2014

Well, where to start! Perfect company, food, cottage and setting, even the weather! 
October 2014

Thank you very much for letting us stay in your cottage! We have had a lovely week seeing all the sights, including dolphins! The Cottage had everything we needed. We especially enjoyed being out in the boat, although we did get stuck in the mud and had to jump in! Thank you again, we hope to be back soon! 
September 2014

Enjoyed the whole week. Cottage comfortably accommodated family of 8 and the “Lady’s Maid” made the whole trip one never to be forgotten. Rob & Lin created a wonderful cottage with all kinds of amenities for us all. If you have kids, would also recommend Kidzworld in St Austell and for Horseriding, try Sunrising International Riding School. More than anything, enjoy the trip if you can. 
August 2014

We’ve had a great week in the cottage – thanks for sorting that for us at short notice and equipping it so well. Thanks again – we’ve had a great week in the cottage and the village – what a lovely place.
July 2014

We have enjoyed a wonderful week in your lovely cottage. You have thought of absolutely everything as it is so well equipped and comfortable. Thank you also for all the information on attractions, pubs, etc, we did most of them! Thanks also for the wine & biscuits, we enjoyed them all. Had Sunday lunch at “Kingswood”, St Austell – good! 
June 2014

Had a very relaxing week. Couldn’t wish for a more peaceful and beautiful place. We were all impressed by the quaint cottage in such a picturesque location. The Cottage was great, clean and well equipped but being 6’ 2” found the beams and doorways a bit low (no sense, no feeling). All the villagers we met were very warm and friendly and loved chatting with the children. We had lovely weather and the dads and children loved having the use of the boat, so all in all we had a fantastic holiday. Thank you very much for looking after us so well. 
May 2014
