“Exceptional cottage + the perfect setting = magical holiday”

It's easy to run out of superlatives when trying to describe Little Hendra. The cottage has been finished to an exceptionally high standard and the little touches provided by owners Colette and Andrew really are the icing on the cake. From the cream tea on arrival, to the milk and chilled bottle of wine, these all made the end of a long journey much less stressful than on previous holidays.

The cottage is in a wonderful setting, with glorious west-facing views out over the surrounding countryside, which can be enjoyed from the very safe and private garden and patio or from the bedrooms and sitting room. Some of the sunsets were amazing!

Little Hendra is perfectly located to explore the area around Padstow and Port Isaac, but very convenient for further afield. The addition of a convenience store and petrol station 5 minutes up the road is a bonus. There are several top notch pubs all within a 10 minute drive, all serving excellent food.

Andrew and Colette are the perfect hosts: keen to ensure your holiday goes well, but not intrusive.

I would have no hesitation in recommending this cottage to my family and friends (providing they don't want to book it when I do!!)

“We enjoyed it so much we have booked it again next year (twice!)”

We normally holiday in Luxury Cottages in Cornwall. This was the first time we had stayed at Little Hendra and on the first day decided that it was perfect for us; it ticked all of the boxes!
The property is spotlessly clean and the owners have equipped it with everything you need for a week or two away. We really appreciated the wine, milk, coffee and cream teas that were waiting for us on arrival. Throughout the week it was all of the little things that were provided for us that set it apart.
The owners were very friendly and helpful but kept a distance unless we needed them.
It was a quiet location with its own orchard and sun trap patio. Garage pub and shop was a few minutes away and it was situated perfectly central for exploring this beautiful county.

We formed an opinion on the first day and as soon as we got back we booked it for 2 holidays next year. We can't recommend it highly enough!
