Cottage Review:  

Booked this holiday because of the views and they really did not disappoint. What disappointed me most about this property is that the letting agents did not tell us certain material facts. The property suffers from damp and the twin bedroom is so damp it has a dehumidifier in it to try and deal with this (which it doesn't. I always understand that old properties might be damp but this property is a relatively new build in comparison to a lot of older cottages. I have asthma so this provided me with a massive problem. Also, when we had paid the deposit and received the final confirmation we were then presented with the fact that the car parking space is incredibly difficult to get into. It was actually unusable so we had to park on the road.

If the damp/parking issues at this property were sorted out then it would be a fantastic place to stay. The views are outstanding, the apartment is very spacious and it was lovely and quiet there. I have to say that I would book a property at Gwel Marten apartments again but I would check the parking situation (some apartments have much easier parking spaces) and I would seek assurance that there was no damp in the property. Suffice it to say that I will not be using Cornish Cottage Holidays ever again.
