We had a lovely stay

The Grannnery is a flat in a convesiion which is on the upper level above the garage. It is very light and airy. Heating is available for water and cetral heating plus free WI FI. The kitchen area is well equipped with cooker, fridge and microwave. Books, CDs and DVD are avaialable. The owners were away during our stay but had left a good local information sheet and loads of brochures. We did not see the owners but they provided a phone number if needed and their daughter came to check we were ok. There is a good park and ride service into York and we visited Casle Howard which is very close by.

Fantastic cottage for a relaxing and comfortable vacation

I stayed with my newly wedding husband at Lynher Cottage for our 2 week honeymoon. We required a fully furnished cottage with a large well equipped kitchen since my husband loves to cook. We also wanted a place that was peaceful and relaxing and Lynher Cottage was perfect for us. Although the weather didn't turn out great for us, we still enjoyed meeting the resident alpacas at the cottage and enjoying informative conversations with the owners of the property. We were able to walk around the alpaca farm and visit Plymouth which is only 20 minutes away from the cottage. We also enjoyed local food products that were just down the road from us. I recommend this cottage for couples who need to get away to relax and enjoy the countryside and each others company.

Delightful Cottage with alpacas as neighbours

The cottage is in a quiet and peaceful location, overlooking fields in which alpacas are grazing. It is located about a mile from the main road, but feels as though you are well away from towns and villages. The owners were very welcoming and helpful and the cottage was very well prepared for our needs. The outside patio area offered the opportunity of eating outside and a splendid gas fired barbecue was available for our use. Inside, the cottage was thoughtfully laid out and very comfortable. The kitchen area was very well equipped and all we required was available. We were very impressed with the way that all the cutlery, crockery and utensils matched and were of a high quality. Every effort had been made to make the environment as pleasant and welcoming as possible and the owners should be congratulated for the way in which they had set out the cottage. For entertainment, the TV and DVD player, together with a radio and CD player met all our requirements and there was a good selection of games and Dvds for our use. The cottage was very clean and well prepared for us, which gave a very good impression. In relation to heating, it was helpful to have oil filled electric radiators available as well as oil fired central heating if required. Although the cottage is close to the owners' house and shares access, it was very quiet and we were not disturbed by any of the farm activity. There was plenty of room for our car and we could get it close to the door for loading and unloading. We took the opportunity of meeting the alpacas and finding out about how they need to be looked after. It was fascinating having them in the field beside the cottage and a pleasure to watch them being fed in the morning. There were clear places where we could walk and the worker, looking after the animals, was full of enthusiasm and a pleasure to listen to. All we required was available locally and it was excellent centre for exploring East and South Cornwall.

Excellent cottage for peace and quiet

Ideal cottage if you want complete peace and quiet. The owners are nearby in the farm house should you need anything but they are non intrusive. The patio to the cottage is private and overlooks the countryside. The cottage was very clean, well equipped and adequate for two people. I had to use the central heating in the cottage one evening and it is excellent, warming up the cottage in less than 30 minutes. The alpacas and other farm animals made this cottage different from others. If you are after something unique and a complete rest from everyday life then this is the place to come.

week with Alpacas

Just spent a lovely week at this delightful cottage. It is set in a delightful location overlooking fields and rolling hills.In the adjoining field were 13 male Alpacas, which were a delight to watch. The cottage is very well equipped and comfortable. The location is quite remote, the nearest village being about 1 mile away, so I think a car is essential. If you are a member of the National Trust there are a lot of properties nearby.
