I love this property because it is right in the middle of the countryside with great walking opportunities. Every morning I would see all sorts of wildlife, and then top it all off with evenings spent in the hot tub. Just an amazing two weeks!

We have had such a wonderful week at your beautiful house. It has been the perfect relaxing getaway and we are very grateful to you for being so welcoming and full of great suggestions. We will certainly be returning as soon as possible!

Wow, wow, wow! A truly magical stay. We´re saddened to be returning home after an indulgent week here. The house is a gem and the area has confirmed that moving to Cornwall is now our aspiration. Thank you Simon for being so accommodating and empathetic. We┤ve had such a fabulous time!

Two weeks at Valency Wood, just bliss! Simon and Natasha have thought of everything. A wonderful working kitchen and the hot tub is sublime, especially when it´s only a quick dash to the great shower. Our dog enjoyed roaming free in the meadow, stress free walking for us - yay! We will be back.

What an amazing week it┤s been. I came here with my partner and our dog Bella to celebrate his birthday. The location is perfect, 10 minutes to the beach, 35 minutes from Padstow. Make sure you visit Boscastle, it´s such a lovely town. The house had everything we needed, the garden is even dog proof! Simon was the perfect host, along with his dog charlie, he made sure we had everything we needed. We look forward to visiting again next year.

We had such a wonderful winter break here at Valency Wood. Our dog loved the acres of fields that surround the property and we can definitely recommend the hour walk to Boscastle. We walked up on the cliffs there for the views and we were not disappointed. Thank you for being such a wonderful host. The hot tub was the icing on the cake when we came home from our adventures and the welcome pack was gorgeous. Thank you so much.

Who would rent a holiday cottage in Cornwall in the middle of December with storms forecast?Well we did and thoroughly enjoyed it! Valency Wood is so warm and welcoming and we stayed in by the fire more than expected. George, our Spaniel Bichon mix, loved the freedom to explore the fields and woods. Simon and Natasha you have a wonderful place here. Thank you for your hospitality, we hope to return soon!

We had an absolutely wonderful time at Valency Wood and will highly recommend it to anyone who is considering a trip to Cornwall. We spent some time talking with Simon, who was kind enough to show us around his property (his orchid meadows especially!) and the historic church that is situated on it.

Simon and his family are the perfect hosts and they have an amazing house - we will definitely be coming back to Valency Wood and looking at your other houses to for other holidays

It is an ideal setting if you have energetic children and a dog, as not only are there lots of beautiful places to visit locally, Simon has a vast amount of land that you are allowed to walk on. He made us all feel so welcome and couldn┤t do enough for us.

It was perfect and a little bit of paradise!

The property and grounds were of a supreme quality and standard. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and were given a warm welcome and plenty of local information from the owner, who was very helpful throughout.

Amazing location, the walks were just stunning and right the doorstep, which is great for dog owners. Simon the owner was very friendly and helpful with knowledge of the local area. The house was really lovely and we┤d definitely visit again. It┤s a perfect location especially for dog walkers.

Beautiful house, idyllic location, great for dogs and lovers of the countryside. The owners are delightful people & enhanced our stay. We felt very much at home.

What makes this property especially appealing is the bright hospitality of Simon and Natasha. They were never intrusive but always helpful. Simon went into Boscastle and helped us follow him out to the cottage when we were lost. Simon and Natasha were helpful with directions and advised which restaurants provided the best food. We greatly enjoyed their company. It is not our habit to stay in the same place twice, but we were so impressed with this cottage that we look forward to staying again!

The cottage is a real gem. It is finished to a very nice standard and has recently been completed. The accommodation is very spacious and, despite its age, the property was warm and had plenty of light from large windows. What is really special about this cottage, however, is that it is full of local Cornish artwork hand selected by Simon, the owner. Simon has selected excellent pottery, paintings and even a few sculptures from Cornish artists that greatly enhance the decor. We liked the artwork so much; we had to purchase some for our home!

We were looking for a property in Cornwall and this one fit the bill very nicely. The quality of the property as well as the hospitality of the owners made this a very pleasant surprise. Simon and Natasha have furnished the home to a very high standard, but the artwork throughout the cottage is what makes this property very special.

The owner was extremely helpful and pleasant. He gave a guided tour of his land so that we knew exactly which walks we could go on. He was very knowledgeable about the area and gave recommendations for dining and walking in the region. Overall, a very pleasant stay and we would be very pleased to return.

Very helpful, friendly owners with good local knowledge.

Its a beautiful property in a great location with open field and woodland on the doorstep - ideal for dog owners and families. The owner (Simon) was a great host, very personable and welcoming

As soon as we drove up the long drive we knew we were going to have a lovely relaxing time. Beautiful village, beautiful location, beautiful house. Everything was perfect. Simon the owner was very accommodating. There is an abundance of lovely walks on his land alone, and he took the time to show us the walks, we all loved it, as did the dogs.

We wanted a quality house to stay in and we were not disappointed!
