Had a great week staying in the Owl House, which was really cosy, comfortable and spacious. We arrived after a 8.5 hour drive from Birmingham and was met with a lovely welcome pack which consisted of bread, milk, butter and plenty of other goodies, which kept us going. We were not expecting to have been left so much. There was also a free supply of logs to use on the woodburner which came in handy, especially as it was starting to get slightly chilly in the evening. There were also some fresh flowers in the cottage, which was a nice touch and made it seem homely for us. The bedroom was really spacious and the bed was really comfortable - at least 6ft wide. The cottage was ideally located between Falmouth and Gweek, and there was a really short drive to the village of Constantine which had a good stocked Spar shop and a pub which served food. The highlight for us had to be our visit to the Lizard point and the coastal walk we took to Kynance Cove, although we didn't quite get to the cove, but walked back to the point where there is a really nice cafe. Also we visited Porthleven, Mullion Cove, Falmouth, Penzance and Truro. Also, I booked myself on a Ocra 2 hour boat trip from Falmouth harbour which was great fun. The weather was a bit mixed, but most of the time it stayed dry for us. It is highly recommended - a great base to stay to visit the surrounding area.
Owl House is a great little bolt hole in which to relax and restore. The house is nicely appointed with a 'welcome pack' awaiting you on arrival - we quickly felt at home. Jennie and Peter are just the right combination of present-but-not-hovering to ensure you have everything needed and then your on your own to explore this beautiful part of Cornwall - the awesome Lizard peninsula is a fifteen minute drive and there are stunning coastline walks - good gastro-pubs and restaurants within easy reach. All highly recommended.
We had a glorious week staying in Owl House. The house itself is immaculate and beautifully decorated; we quickly felt at home. it's location is fantastic - remote without feeling isolated, since it's an easy drive to the beach and stunning coastal walks, as well as to Falmouth and Helston. Beautiful house + great location = wonderfully relaxing holiday :). We would heartily recommend it!
Situated down a quiet country lane, yet only 5 miles from Falmouth, ideal for touring west Cornwall.
A very clean large well equipped converted barn, with log burning stove and everything that you need for a splendid holiday, including a lovely welcome pack.

Owl house is a perfect place to take time out, relax and reset. It has everything you need and designed to top quality. There is a nice walk to the local pub across the fields. It is a little of the beaten track but every thing you need is easy to access. We could not recommended owl house enough.
