Had a brilliant stay, loved the house and the gardens. Would love to come back again very soon!
A really lovely comfortable house in a beautiful setting. We had a very happy, relaxing week there.
Olivia and I were very pleased with our stay at The Artists´ Retreat. Janet Shearer is an excellent host.
The cottage was very comfortable and set in delightful surroundings. Even if the weather had not been perfect I would have enjoyed staying there as there were plenty of books which catered for all interests and although there were no children in our party we noticed that children´s interests were also taken into account with toys and games etc. The tucked away surroundings were beautiful and peaceful, a perfect place to unwind. I returned home feeling relaxed and rested. I only wish we had been able to stay longer. The Artists´ Retreat is well situated to visit many places of interest, and for both beach and countryside. I would definitely like to return at some time and would recommend it to my friends.
Janet was brilliant the property was fabulous, lovely and relaxing, easy to relax in and in a beautiful location. It provided us with exactly the environment we needed to get away with our little girl - thank you!!
This is a beautiful property in a stunning location. The quality of the property and standard of facilities and furnishings was excellent.
It is great to arrive at a place which is already stocked with the basic supplies: Janet gave us bread, butter, milk, etc along with the hamper. she was also a very accomodating hostess, who regularly checked that we were okay. A brilliant time in a wonderful location

We had a fantastic time at The Artists´ Retreat, the house was great and Janet was so helpful. The weather wasn’t the best but we made the most of our holiday!
A lovely place to stay and location was central for everything we needed and Janet was very helpful.
The Artists´ Retreat was stunning, and certainly unique! It was well equipped, beautifully decorated and the location was perfect.
We really liked the property and its beautiful setting and found the owner very welcoming. Her animals, particularly the peacocks, were much appreciated by our one year old granddaughter!
I stayed at The Artists´ Retreat for three months from January to March 2011. Such a gorgeous, quaint and cosy house with a very peaceful feel to it. It was a rejuvenating experience – lovely walks, scenery, a central location to explore beautiful Cornwall and a nearby winery which came in very handy!
Really great peaceful house and Janet had a good feeling if we needed something or just space and silence. Everything was in the house you need to have a great time ...wish I could stay longer.
The house was perfect – exactly what we expected from the website. It was great for the kids, they were able to explore the garden, the stream, interact with the animals, and explore around the house. The house was beautifully furnished, and well equipped. We loved Janet’s artwork displayed in every room, and especially her trompe l’oeil work. Janet was very welcoming, great with the kids, and helpful (for example, she turned the oven off for us one day when we were out longer than expected). So, in summary, we loved it!
Beautiful, peaceful setting and we all loved the location - Very central for exploring both South and North Cornwall.
Beautiful, very characterful, rustic property. Janet was very welcoming and happy to offer any help or advice for planning our days. The property was also very well stocked in terms of kitchen utensils and household items.
We had such a lovely time at The Artists´ Retreat, and were made to feel very welcome. We were so sad to have to go home
I just wanted to send you a note just to let you know how much we enjoyed our stay at The Artists´ retreat. The accommodation was perfect as was the welcome we received from the owner, she couldn´t have been more helpful. My 12 year old daughter saw your company on a tv programme about Cornwall, visited your website and found the cottage. To be honest it wouldn´t have been my choice of holiday but as not to disappoint her we went along with it. As it turned out it was just about my favourite holiday of all time and I can´t wait till we make a return visit.
A very pleasant experience from booking to the end of our holiday. Ill be recommending you to friends and family.
