Thank you for a wonderful stay. Such a beautiful cottage and perfect for a baby and dog! We had the best time with the best weather. Thank you, we´ll be back!

A beautiful cottage in a truly beautiful area. The cottage is perfect for those rainy days, snuggling next to the fire! Thank you very much for the hamper - what a lovely surprise! We will hopefully be back!

We´ve had a wonderful stay, as always! The cottage is beautiful. It has been a lovely week. We love it here, every time we come. Thank you so much, we will be back!

Thank you for such a wonderful stay. The cottage is even more beautiful than we had imagined, and so cosy and warm. We stayed here for our 3rd wedding anniversary and it has been the most wonderful week. We will definitely be back in the future to escape the madness of the world! Thank you again.

Thank you for everything! Great flowers, nice atmosphere, lovely area, beautiful cottage - everything was perfect for our short break!

We arrived at the cottage and were very pleased, it was spotless. Thank you for the welcome hamper and well done to the housekeeper! It is beautiful inside, and just our taste. We have had an amazing week, we were out everyday with our Cockerpoo, Harry. The weather has been very kind to us and we loved Padstow and Fistral Beach - The Fish House overlooking the sea is our favourite place to eat, please try it! The Beach Hut in Watergate Bay also has amazing views and is worth a visit. Thank you.

Thank you for making our first visit to Cornwall so fabulous. Sweetpea Cottage has been a joy, with so many lovely touches and so well thought through - all much appreciated. Even a week of rain didn´t spoil our break, possibly allowing us slightly more time indoors to enjoy the comfort and ambience. We shall return for sure and enjoy all the wonderful delights Cornwall has to offer. This little gem of a cottage, in our opinion, is a perfect spot that has been so cosy and enjoyable. Thank you again for making us feel so welcome.

What a beautiful cottage ideally situated for lots of adventures. Our family travelled from Fowey, finishing off our holiday here in this little gem. We have eaten in some fantastic places including Fifteen at Watergate Bay. We spent beach days on the bay at Lusty Glaze beach and restaurant. Thank you for making our holiday so relaxing and comfortable. This is our third stay with Unique Home Stays and we love you! So sad to be leaving!

We´ve had a fantastic week here at Sweetpea Cottage. It has been a beautiful house to stay in, with every detail thought of. Our daughter and our dog have also enjoyed their stay. A beautiful holiday in a cosy Cornish cottage!

What a beautiful and charming cottage in a fabulous location! My husband and I came here with our six month old baby boy and enjoyed long walks on the beach with our golden retriever, wine in front of the fire and breakfast at Fifteen Cornwall. Three nights just wasn´t enough and we can´t wait to come and stay again for longer.

Our third visit to Sweetpea Cottage and it´s just as lovely, a real home from home. This is the first time we have spent the new year in Cornwall for a long time, the lovely Christmas tree with its twinkling lights was an added bonus! Even though we weathered storm Dylan and Eleanor, we stayed dry and warm both inside and out. We can thoroughly recommend the coastal walk to The Hidden Hut at Porthcurnick beach, the homemade soup is a must on a sunny, blustery January day. We will be back again soon.

Our first family holiday with our baby boy and my first mothers day! We leave Sweetpea Cottage a couple of stone heavier, we are full of cream teas and Cornish ice cream and with wonderful happy memories that we will always cherish. Thank you to Rupert for letting Leo borrow his nursery books and toys, he has had a wonderful time. Your cottage is so cosy and homely and brilliantly well equipped, especially for families with babies! The hamper and flowers were also a lovely touch. We will definitely be pinching some of your interior design ideas for our own little ´Sweetpea´ up in Runswick Bay. Thank you so much for an unforgettable stay in Cornwall.

Time to be honest, I am often described as a high maintenance girl with high expectations and let me tell you, its my first night in your beautiful home and I am not disappointed. As I sit here on the sofa, with a glass of fizz listening to great music through the great sound system and realise that I cannot remember the last time I felt this relaxed - incredible! Your home is beautiful and attention to detail is impeccable, even down to the steak knives. Also love how it smells, so much so, I have just ordered your toiletries for my own house. An incredible cottage and a great week in Cornwall. Thanks again and I hope that we will be back soon!

Having had an amazing stay in April we decided to come to the cottage for Christmas. It has been a thoroughly relaxing experience. Sweetpea Cottage is so homely and comfortable and the surrounding countryside and beaches are amazing. Christmas morning on Crantock beach with the dogs will be remembered for a long time. Love the addition of the Sonos sound system since we were last here. Thanks again for a great holiday.

We love Sweetpea Cottage! Thank you for having us in your beautiful home. You have created the perfect retreat to escape to. We celebrated the start of 2017 here, Rob´s birthday and as of yesterday our engagement too! The perfect place to celebrate. You have thought of everything to make guests feel welcome. The fresh flowers, to the food hamper (complete with prosecco!) and the beautiful Christmas tree! We will definitely be back to stay and will recommend your beautiful cottage to family and friends. The dogs loved their beds (more than their own) and their delicious treats. Thank you for everything and making our engagement so special - Happy New Year!

Such a beautiful cottage, a cute bolthole! We had a lovely time and will always remember our stay here - especially because we got engaged! What a gorgeous place to celebrate, we will remember it forever! Thank you.

Utterly beautiful and set in a very peaceful surround. For me, it was the perfect place to totally unwind and relax. A true homely feeling from day one. Presented in a beautiful way, attention to detail immaculate, the welcome hamper very much appreciated and everything else superb. The bed was sheer comfort, the linen soft. All which contributed to me staying in bed, so warm and very snug. I had the bedroom windows open to enjoy the sounds of the birds in the mornings. Thank you to the owners for making this cottage so welcoming and utterly gorgeous.

This is truly one of the most relaxing cottages we have had the pleasure to stay in! A lovely hamper to welcome us with all the essentials and fresh flowers - a home from home. Great location to visit so many wonderful places. The ´Beach Hut´at Watergate Bay, great for watching surfers while you eat. Eden Project for the Christmas light show was amazing and a short hop to Newquay. Lewinnick Lodge another great place to eat after a walk on the headland. All in all a very relaxing week, which was just what was needed! It is not often you would want to go back to the same place twice, as it often fails to live up to expectations - we´re sure that would not be the case here. Sad to be leaving.

The cottage was truly, utterly stunning and so beautiful! I cant thank the owners enough for everything. Attention to detail was superb. So homely and cosy it made it difficult to get out of bed in the morning! Fresh flowers, the Christmas tree, the heating, the hamper and more! The house keeping was also brilliant in terms of giving directions to the cottage so my thanks go to many!

I´ve been here for 5 minutes and I already do not want to leave. Firelit and wonderful windy walks on the beaches - rainbows everywhere all ending at Sweetpea Cottage!

Such a beautiful cottage! We´ve had a wonderful time staying here. It´s been the perfect place for our first family holiday and our first visit to Cornwall. Everything we could´ve thought of has been provided, it was great not having to bring all the baby paraphernalia with us!

The perfect place to unwind and be relaxed, a home from home. a wonderful location for all the gorgeous places of Cornwall, Port Issac, Rock, Padstow and Crantock beach - wow! We went horse racing down the estuary, a lovely experience. A perfect bolt hole, we will come back again one day.

We have loved our time here. It has been the perfect place for us to enjoy our honeymoon with our son. He absolutely loved the nursery and all the toys, what a great touch! The cottage is decorated so beautifully and we truly enjoyed the hamper with all the treats you left us. We would love to come back again and will definitely recommend this cottage to all our friends with or without little ones.

Thank you so much for the beautiful hamper which we received upon arrival. Wow, Sweetpea Cottage is absolutely stunning and we have enjoyed every single second being here, on our first family holiday with baby Harry. We have had a fantastic honeymoon and we can´t wait to return next summer. Sweetpea is a place of true beauty and we hope to make our own Sweetpea when we move into our new home this weekend!

What a wonderful holiday; the hamper blew us away and was much needed after a 10 hour journey! A beautiful cottage and so clean! Sweetpea is so well put together, we really don´t want to leave. Astrid loved her bedroom and slept soundly every night. Thank you so much!

What a fantastic cottage. We were relaxed from the moment we walked through the door. Great attention to detail that really makes you feel at home. Thank you for the welcoming hamper and for your help and tips during our visit. Sweetpea Cottage is in an amazing location where everything is so easy to get to. Best cottage we have stayed in. Thanks again!

We have had the most wonderful time at your gorgeous cottage! It has been the perfect place to celebrate a birthday and spend our babymoon. Our dog has loved it here too! The cottage is so well equipped and the extra touches, the hamper and fresh flowers have made our visit extra special. We hope to visit again soon.

We stayed over Valentines weekend and it was one of the best weeks in Cornwall I´ve ever had. Sweetpea Cottage is the most beautiful cottage and everything was fantastic. Thank you so much, we will definitely be back.

We stayed here for our honeymoon and it was absolutely perfect, just what we needed and wanted. Thank you for providing us with such a beautiful cottage. We loved everything about it! It´s been the perfect little hideaway from the world. The owner was more than helpful so thanks to them for being such fantastic hosts. We will definitely be back!

We found the cottage to be extremely comfortable and the extra luxuries provided were excellent. Fresh flowers and the lovely hamper along with treats for our dogs and comfy dog beds made a lot of difference to us. The cottage was very clean and warm and cosy when we arrived after our long drive. We would definitely return again and have always had good service from Unique Home Stays.

We have had a lovely stay at Sweetpea Cottage. A quiet spot but within easy reach of main roads, making sure we could get about easily. We loved the quality and imagine that a lot of care and attention has gone into getting the cottage looking as fantastic as it does. We have stayed in lots of holiday cottages over the years and this is definitely one of the best. Thank you for letting us and our dogs stay, they loved watching the birds on the bird table in the garden! We will come back again for sure. Oh and also, the hamper was fabulous!

This place is perfect! We would like to come back, tomorrow if possible! We loved the welcome hamper with all of the lovely local produce. The location is everything you could want, secluded enough to feel tucked away and hidden from the world but barely ten minutes to Newquay and the surrounding areas. We loved the bath and the bed, both were amazing! Thank you so much!

An absolute gem! We have had such a lovely time at Sweetpea Cottage. We tend to visit Cornwall a few times a year and can honestly say that this has been our best stay so far. It is, however, our first trip with our four month old son who was able to make great use of Rupert´s lovely nursery. The decor is incredible and all the extras just made it that much better. We will definitely be returning.

Thank you for a wonderful stay in Sweetpea Cottage. All the little touches made it extra special. We loved the real Christmas tree, decorations and festive candles. It felt so ´Christmassy´ and romantic.

Thank you so much for having us stay in your beautiful cottage! It is absolutely stunning and you have decorated it to perfection. We have had a lovely week relaxing at Sweetpea Cottage. We enjoyed a fantastic lunch at Jamie Oliver´s Fifteen and a lovely coastal walk to follow. Our son Harry has loved every minute of being in a new place with new things to explore! Thank you for being so accommodating with the stair gate, it was a huge help with him now on the move. Thank you also for my amazing hamper, what a lovely surprise on arrival, we felt very welcome and spoilt! All the best for you and your family.

Thank you so so much for letting us stay in your beautiful and exquisite cottage. What can I say that hasn´t been said already? All of the fantastic comments in your book are a testament to just how perfect this place is. From the moment we arrived we have been in awe of how stunning the sights are, both inside and out. We have loved our stay here, it has truly been the most romantic break we have ever had. All that is left to say is a big thank you! We will never forget our stay and hope to return soon!

Thank you for a wonderful stay in your beautiful cottage! It certainly has the wow factor as you pull up outside and it continues as you walk in. It was so cosy and welcoming, we instantly felt at home. The hamper was great. Sweetpea Cottage has been the perfect place for our first holiday as a little family, we are very sad to be leaving.

We have been enjoying the lovely treats all week! My wife fell in love with the decor in the cottage and now has visions of transforming our own house into a ´Sweetpea´ haven!

I brought my husband down here to celebrate his 30th birthday and to escape our hectic lives back in London. The cottage was all that I had hoped it would be and more, we had the perfect weekend, taking long walks, enjoying cream teas and sitting in front of the log fire. You really have gone the extra mile with this cottage from the hamper to the organic toiletries - we are really sad to be leaving.

The beautiful Sweetpea Cottage was in the perfect location where we could enjoy days out at St Michael´s Mount, Padstow and Kynance Cove. We are sad to leave, but for us the cottage will always be where precious memories of our first family holiday were created.

A beautiful cottage at which we celebrated a wonderful birthday weekend away in an idyllic cottage and gardens. Thank you for the hamper and all the flowers everywhere, and the gorgeous dog treats.

What a beautiful cottage. A wonderful birthday weekend away in an idyllic cottage and gardens. Thank you for the hamper, the flowers and the gorgeous dog treats which the dogs loved.

The cottage was beautiful, we loved the furnishings and it really exceeded our expectations.

A lovely break in a wonderful cottage. Thanks for all the thoughtful little extras; the beautiful flowers and especially the goodies in the fridge which were greatly appreciated! I will be making a another visit soon!

We have had an amazing long weekend in your beautiful cottage. Everything was perfect when we arrived after a very long journey down! On the rainy days, Sweetpea Cottage was a lovely place to relax. A massive thank you for all your thoughtful little touches and for allowing us to stay in your home for what has been a fantastic weekend!

Thank you for letting us use your beautiful home for our first family holiday. Your home is stunning, warm, cosy and was so clean. On arrival we were surprised with the lovely hamper filled with goodies and enjoyed sampling the local produce, thank you! Our baby girl slept wonderfully in Ruperts nursery (thank you Rupert!) and enjoyed hearing some of the stories from the many books in Rupert´s room. Everything about our holiday was perfect (minus a few rain days) and would just like to thank you all for such a lovely holiday, the cottage really made this break what it was.

Sweetpea Cottage is beautiful with some lovely touches inside. It felt very warm and cosy in the evenings, especially with the open fire. The roses and the hamper were both a wonderful start to our stay.

The cottage is amazing and we had a wonderful week here following our wedding. What a perfect place to relax and unwind. We has some fantastic weather and enjoyed visiting beaches and walking along the beautiful coast. On the rainy days we snuggled up in this beautiful cottage which has lovely furniture and has been decorated so wonderfully. We loved the flowers which were throughout the house and the food hamper was extremely thoughtful. We will definitely be back for our anniversary.

Thank you for such an enjoyable stay. We are so sad that we must now go away. Your beautiful house made us feel right at home, so we´re recording our stay in this little poem. We´ve had a brilliant time on our honeymoon, and really hope we can come back soon. Its a shame we didn´t see much sun, but we didn´t let that spoil the fun. From the Eden Project to Healey´s cider farm, The Lost Gardens of Heligan all have so much charm. We found so many things to see and do, we need to come back for another week or two. And now we will go home to our new life, we´re one very happy man and wife.

We had a much needed two week break at Sweetpea Cottage, beautifully finished and equipped, we will certainly recommend this place! One of the very best we have ever stayed in! Thank you.

What a fabulous two weeks we have had in this gorgeous cottage. Decorated so very beautifully and with lovely finishing touches. The nursery was just perfect for our five month old daughter and thank you Rupert for sharing your toys and books!! We will certainly be recommending a break here to our friends with young babies! Thank you.

All the little touches are what made the difference to our stay. Every detail was thought of and we have felt very welcome- thank you! We´ve had a lovely Honeymoon.

An enchanting and obviously much loved cottage. We enjoyed our stay at Sweetpea Cottage very much, from the lovely treats on arrival to the beautiful flowers placed around the property that made us feel very welcomed.

The standard and quality of the cottage was superb and the owners had thought of everything in the terms of little touches, so it really felt like our very own cottage for five days! The location is perfect with easy access to the A30 which lead to everything! The cottage had been sympathetically restored and the décor was very tasteful, with great quality bedding and linen. The food hamper including the bottle of Proseco was a wonderful touch.

Mum and I are already talking about when we can book another stay at Sweetpea Cottage – it is a truly magical place that you can see and feel you have nurtured and created with such love and attention to detail. A beautiful and stylish home which also strikes the balance of being so wonderfully homely and comfortable. Wishing you a very successful year as I’m sure it will be and undoubtedly you’ll have lots of people like us wanting to book their next stay!

We can´t thank you enough for welcoming us to your truly beautiful home. We were very much looking forward to a stay in Cornwall, however the experience and stay at Sweetpea Cottage has made it magical, so much so we really don´t want to go home. All the very best with your venture and we will certainly be back and recommending to our friends.

We loved everything about Sweetpea Cottage. The moment we stepped through the door we just knew we wanted to spend all our time in this dear little place. So cosy and warm and very restful. There were flowers everywhere and a wonderful hamper full of wine and goodies as well as sausages and bacon etc in the fridge. Even our two little schnauzers were spoilt too, they had their own beds, bowls and breakfast biscuits. We would like to thank the owners and Unique Home Stays for a wonderful holiday and we look forward to a return visit.

Thank you for the welcome hamper, everything was so delicious. Your sweet cottage is a delight and we feel so rested. We look forward to a return visit.

Firstly, we just wanted to say thank you for coming to our rescue last week when my baby brain had properly kicked in- you bent over backwards to accommodate us and we are very grateful! Secondly, we had such a wonderful stay here in this beautiful cottage and can´t wait to come back again with our son and make use of the nursery.

We had such a wonderful stay here in this beautiful cottage! We can´t wait to come back again with our son and make use of the nursery.

The property was absolutely immaculate. Having the nursery was a huge, huge bonus and it was beautiful! We loved the attention to detail. Sweetpea Cottage is really beautifully kept.

There was such a warm welcome, it just felt so homely and a great base for visiting all areas. We visited Newquay, Perranporth, St Ives, Lands End, Penzance, and Padstow. It was nice to come back in the evening, take off our shoes and just relax and enjoy the peacefulness of the cottage, even it was only for this one week.

We cannot rate this holiday cottage highly enough. It is a beautiful cottage both on the outside and inside. The owners had gone to great lengths to make us feel very welcome on our arrival, with many little extras, all a lovely surprise after a long journey! The cottage is decorated in a very homely style and makes a perfect cosy base from which to explore. It is in a great location on a quiet country lane, but also close to many attractions. If you are looking for a clean, comfortable, cosy country cottage then look no further!

Beautiful cottage with homely feel. Well presented, decorated and furnished, with lovely welcoming touches from owners. Ideally located for visiting any part of Cornwall.

This cottage must be the best we have stayed in by a mile so far. The welcome pack left by the friendly owners was a welcome surprise and we even had a roaring fire awaiting us upon arrival. We found travelling from the cottage to any of the beautiful gems Cornwall offers was easy as the main roads were only minutes away. The cottage was so well equipped it was just like home from home.

We had a very pleasant week at Sweetpea Cottage. The location is ideal for exploring Cornwall. The cottage is very cosy and well kept. The owners made us very welcome with plenty of goodies and a nice roaring fire. They really do go the extra mile. I would recommend Sweetpea cottage to anyone.

We found Sweetpea Cottage to be enchanting, peaceful, clean and very comfortable. The cottage is ideally positioned for visiting many Cornish attractions, our favourite, Mevagissey, is just 30 mins away. The owners were very helpful. There were many welcome goodies to be found on our arrival which all added to the pleasant experience. Sweetpea offers ideal accommodation whatever the season. We hope to return in the future.
