Was a really lovely stay overall very clean and welcomed by scones which was a lovely touch. The cottage was very sweet and as expected from pictures. There really was no wifi which was perfect for us as it was a break from the rea world which was lovely but if wifi or service wo…
Great bolthole for exploring. Very well placed for nearby Cornish coves, Helford, The Minack theatre, St. Ives. Ideally located near the beach (take a BBQ) and pub!
Response from Amanda:
I'm sorry The Old Ration Shop didn't live up to your expectations. I didn't do the changeover on the day of your arrival, but I did see it before you arrived and feel your comments are a little strong. Firstly the floors are white painted wood (which were vacuumed and mopped prior to your arrival), no carpets, so therefore there are none that could get dirty, the two rugs are only a month old and when I checked them, they were not dirty. As far as the damp is concerned, this is a 300 year old cottage with cob walls, if you don't open any windows for 5 days, then it may feel damp, especially if you don't open the bathroom window. We have never had any complaints about the travertine tiled floor in the wet room, in fact it was chosen/recommended due to its non slip qualities. We have never supplied extra large towels, because we have never had anyone complain about the ones we supply, which again were new this year. We make it very clear that WiFi is not good here. Most guests ask us before they stay if they need to use it for work, and we are honest and say that maybe they should stay elsewhere if WiFi is very important to them.
We moved to Cornwall from Greenwich London 10 years ago and never looked back. We love it here, life is slower and calmer. We opened Glendower as a B&B initially which was a great success but decided self catering was easier in the long run. We love walking and exploring Cornwall…
