    “This property has the potential to be an amazing place, however, it needs a lot of attention to bring it up to an acceptable standard for future guests.”

    On arrival the property was 12 degrees!!! The manager kindly told the owners, but they control the temperature from base. The dining room heating did not work at all for the duration of our stay. We had to leave 2 electric radiators on constantly and light the fire in the afternoons so it was warm enough to eat in dining room in the evenings. It was too cold to eat breakfast/ lunch in there.

    On arrival the property was 12 degrees!!! The manager kindly told the owners, but they control the temperature from base. The dining room heating did not work at all for the duration of our stay. We had to leave 2 electric radiators on constantly and light the fire in the afternoons so it was warm enough to eat in dining room in the evenings. It was too cold to eat breakfast/ lunch in there. But because the hive was telling them it was 18-20 degrees they assumed all was ok even though we notified them again a few days later it wasn't. Thank goodness we took a large supply of logs with us!!!! There is only one dishwasher, not enough for a party of 22. There is only a small double frigde/freezer. We did not have enough fridge space to put our food shop in. We had to store all our vegetables, fruit and drinks on the kitchen unit. The chiller for drinks only went down to 8 degrees. The cookers were not clean. Some pans worked on the induction hob, some didn't even though they were from the same set. The cupboard areas were not clean. The kitchen area particularly behind the cookers was dirty, the spalshback was covered in cobwebs and looked greasy, the walls in general looked dirty due to runs from cooking and more cobwebs. The cover to the boiler was broken and was not attached, this is dangerous for very young children. The hoover was fixed together with parcel tape, there was no floor brush and the mop was disgusting and worn out. Lots of long black hairs were found on the wall in the the master suites ensuite. There were cobwebs galore in all rooms and in windows with dead flies. A lot of mouldy food was found under one of the beds in the barn, some head boards were not attached and broken in some cases. Skirting boards were very dusty. On arrival we were told we had full run of the place and nobody else was there, however, the vineyard manager lives above the barn and there is no sound proofing between. You can hear children running up and down in the middle of the night, adults heavy footsteps, coughing laughing, toilets being flushed, light switches being turned off and on and you even get woken up by their alarm clock every morning before 7 and they press the snooze button so you get to hear it more then once. Photographs were submitted to the owners during our stay. To be fair they did offer to send cleaners out to clean, however my family were not happy to have cleaners deep cleaning with all our food on the kitchen units and moving our belongings. This property is advertised as 5 ticks, it certainly is not 5 ticks at the moment. The welcome pack mentioned about -we hope you enjoyed your complimentary drinks and found your cream tea voucher, but there were no complimentary drinks or cream tea voucher, however after discussing the issues found to the manager, he told us that if we go to Healy's Cyder Farm, we will be given a tour and complimentary cream tea. To finish on a positive note, the house is in a beautiful setting and has incredible potential. The games room was enjoyed by all. We really appreciated the lovely gesture of the tour of the Cyder farm and complimentary cream tea. The team at Healy's Cyder farm were amazing and so welcoming. The tour was enjoyed by all 3 generations and the food in the restaurant was delicious.

The property

Engulfed by green countryside and its own private woodland, with vineyards and farmland amounting to 194 acres, this beautiful farmhouse is nestled near the village of Tresillian in Cornwall.

Just a few miles outside of Truro, with designated walks right from the doorstep and plenty to see and do in the surrounding area, this accommodation is perfect for large groups and family celebrations.

The lounge is fabulously uplifted by beamed ceilings and large plush sofas, with artwork and upholstery brightening up the place.

A luxurious range cooker warms up the kitchen, complimented by granite worktops, a breakfast island and modern cooking equipment to use at your leisure.

Sit in the grand dining room at mealtimes and gossip over the adventures you have had so far.

The patio doors stream in plenty of natural light, illuminating the woodwork and high vaulted ceiling.

At one corner is a snug area, where you can lounge the days away with a good book.

You can always choose the conservatory as your resting spot, with sumptuous seating and a woodburning stove to keep your toes nice and toasty.

A wonderful set of bedrooms rest on the first floor, with a double and a twin room on the ground floor for easy access.

The vast gardens and pretty patio to the front of the cottage are simply ideal for relaxing with a drink, whilst the children explore further afield, the large lower garden is also perfect for adventures no matter what the weather.

Tresillian is a quaint village offering riverside walks and further south, Truro boasts many shops, bars and restaurants.

Take a trip to Falmouth and stroll along the harbour with fish and chips or head across to the Roseland Peninsula to discover wooded countryside and secluded coves.

A fabulous region to explore from the ideal base!

Note: This property has a refundable Good Housekeeping bond of £350.

About the location

TRESILLIAN

Truro 3 miles; Tregony 4.3 miles; Portloe 8.3 miles, Perranport, 12 miles, Falmouth 14 miles

This small creekside village is nestled in mid Cornwall, three miles east of Truro. The meaning of the village translates to "a place of eels" in the Cornish language, according to a 19th century writer. However since then it has been translated to "farm/settlement of a man called Sulyen". Within the village is a small number of older buildings including a Grade II listed thatched Inn. Set in the Cornish countryside, Tresillian retains a largely rural character, with the advantage of not being too far away from Cornwall's capital. There is a mixture of pastoral and arable farming in the surrounding area and one of the prettiest riverside walks in Cornwall can be accessed from the western end of the village. Truro offers a good range of independent shops as well as art galleries, bars, restaurants, a cinema and a theatre. The architecture will intrigue those who visit along with plenty of things to do and see. Just meandering through the Georgian cobbled streets is a pleasure in itself. Day trips can be had to Falmouth, along the stunning Fal estuary, where its natural harbour and beaches will keep you occupied for hours. Across from Falmouth harbour is the beautiful town of St Mawes, surrounded by rocky coves and lush green countryside of the Roseland Peninsula. This Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty will inspire those looking for awe and wonder, with a vast region of fabulous walking, delightful creeks and tranquil beaches. A fabulous area you will want to return to!
