Host was very welcoming and friendly. Alan's instructions to get to the cottage and find the key were very easy to follow. The information left in the cottage on things to do in the area was comprehensive.
We had a lovely stay at the cottage, and were made to feel very welcome with extensive advice on the area from Alan, and a delicious welcome package of local goodies! Although we did miss not having a phone and internet connection, the stay was perhaps more restful for it. The area is beautiful, and we thoroughly enjoyed exploring the beaches and towns. It was really great to be able to return back, not to a cramped hotel room, but a relaxing home! Thank you.
A fantastic 5 days spent at Godrevy Cottage. Great location from which to explore the Cornish Coast and towns. The cottage was exactly as described, clean, pretty and a good size for our little family of 3. Definitely recommended and will come back.
A massive thank you to Alan and Clare. Godrevy was a super base for our holiday in North Cornwall. The house was well equipped, very clean, very comfortable, we were very happy there. Etta and Paddy loved their cosy beds, thank you so much for providing new colourful child-friendly beakers and bowls, and it was very thoughtful of you to leave out the lovely childrens reference books about the coast (from one of your books we tried to spot the local birds, Etta & Tee saw an oystercatcher on the Camel!). All the info you sent was helpful and we felt welcomed. Thank you.
Alan was really helpful in setting us up for our trip to Cornwall and our stay at Godrevy Cottage, sending us an email with loads of local information, photos and useful directions to get to the cottage. On arrival, we found a welcome hamper in the kitchen, which was great. The cottage is exactly as you see it on the photos and was clean and comfortable. The garden is very private and peaceful. It was a perfect base for our holiday. Many thanks to Alan and his family.
We had a great time at the cottage. Perfectly located in a lovely quiet town, and only a short drive to busy Padstow and Polzeath. Also nicely tucked away for quiet nights in. Very comfortable and well maintained. Would definitely recommend to friends and family. A great getaway from the city!
Nettes kleines Cottage, liegt etwas Abseits und ist daher himmlisch ruhig. Wir haben uns wohl gefühlt. Die Vermieter sind sehr nett, und unkompliziert. Sie hatten uns schon lange vorab Freizeit- und Restaurantempfehlungen geschickt. Sehr zuvorkommend.
Cute little cottage, located just offside and therefore heavenly quiet. We felt at home. The owners are very nice and easy. They had sent us leisure and restaurant recommendations long before we arrived. Very accommodating.
Lovely Cornish cottage in a great location for exploring the area. In the words of my Grandmother "The Cottage really was a find & it's owners apparently stylish, sophisticated and fair"
We had a lovely stay in Godrevy Cottage. It's in a fantastic location to access beautiful northern beaches and the town of Padstow. The cottage is well-kitted out and very comfortable for 4-5 people. The enclosed garden is very pretty and quiet. I would definitely recommend it and will hopefully stay again one day!
It was a pleasure staying at Alan's cottage. Right from the moment we made the booking he sent us detailed information and photographs about the house and the neighbourhood: all the interesting things to do and visit while we were in Cornwall. Once we arrived the house lived up to our expectations – even with a welcoming bottle of wine waiting for us – and bread and milk and tea too :p The kitchen was particularly nicely equipped, and the whole house felt like a real home. The garden is a lovely retreat, pretty with all the blooms. Alan was always available during our stay.
Will definitely stay here again.
Alan and Clare along with their two beautiful daughters Anna and Ciara, are wonderful guests. What a lovely family! We really enjoyed having them in our home and highly recommend that you do the same. They will bring a lot of joy to your home.
Alan and his family took great care of the house...it was left clean and well taken care of. I would recommend them to any host.
alan and his family were wonderful guests to have in my home. alan was always very communicative before and during their reservation. they left my place very tidy when they left, and they are welcome back any time!
Alan,Clare and daughters Anna and Ciara have been staying at our house these days and have taken great care of it, they were very good guests and absolutely recommend them! Hope to visit Cornwall some day!Best regards,Laura&Josep Mª
Godrevy cottage is a wonderful place in an idyllic setting; it's a perfect base for exploring Cornwall from and there are some fantastic eating experiences to be had only a short drive away (Alan will be able to recommend the best ones). The Gavurins are great hosts and wonderful company.
My family and I stayed at Godrevy Cottage last August for a week as a house swap with Alan and his family. Their cottage is lovely, in a quiet spot close to the North Cornish coast with fab surfing beaches and the coastal path. It's a perfect place to stay, really comfortable with large bedrooms, well equipped and clean. There's a big garden and patio for eating al fresco. And you can cycle to Padstow in the evening for the best fish and ships from Rick Stein's at the harbour!
I would have no hesitation in recommending Alan Gavurin and family to be hosts, guests or travelling companions. Alan is kind and considerate and really good company. I have known Alan for many years and consider him to be a good friend and the perfect host.
