The cottage was very clean and comfortable. It is a detached property so offers peace and quiet. The view of the lake is lovely, even in the rain. The cottage itself is a decent size so there was plenty of room for the two of us plus our dog.

We booked this cottage for the last wk in Jan. We chose The Boat House for its nearness to the lake but as the lake was weeded up hubby had to walk to the other side of the lake to fish. The property itself is in need of updating. The bathroom was good and there are plenty of pots and cutlery.

In view of the point above this is difficult to do. Similarly, the recommend below is difficult because the property is lovely and in a superb location, but the flies were a significant distraction.

Good location as central to many places. Wandering round the lakes was a lovely start to the day. Unfortunately the weather wasn't in our favour but I can imagine sitting on the balcony would be lovely.

Property is as described, no WiFi signal in the boat house which the owner informed me on arrival, owners very flexible regarding arrival. Property is within 1 hours drive to most attractions (st ives 1.5 hours). Good value for money overall

This is the second time we have stayed at the Boat House Callington and enjoyed it just as much if not more than the first time ten years ago. It was peaceful and calm and stress free but close enough to plenty of things to see and do. A bonus for us is that it is pet friendly so Barney had a good time too! Thank you once again and we will be back!

This was our 4th time at this cottage. However we have found that this cottage is in need of some work, for instance the lounge area needs attention. There is no doubt that the lounge offers stunning views across the lakes, but the recliner chair of the settee needs to be looked at as does the individual recliner chair. Neither work as they should.Read more The bedroom and en suite are ok. Location wise this cottage is ideal. Altogether, an average holiday but could be a lot better........ Hide

The only down side was the fact that the lakes were very weeded, and so limited the amount of fishing I could do ! But on the whole, the farm met our every need.
