10 Traveller reviews from Holiday Watchdog
"Excellent place to stay, right from the moment we arrived. Great to have enough space for two very young children to roam. It felt like being at home! I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone who wants to have a relaxing, quiet place to stay; as well as a great base from which to explore Cornwall. We have a long trip ahead of us, planning a 6 month journey around the UK and Europe, but I'm hoping we can stay again before we head home."

It was all we could have hoped for...yes really!
"You never know what to expect with a cottage that you have only seen on line especially with two critical teenagers. We need not have worried. The directions were perfect and the setting was idyllic. We were greeted on arrival in the most friendly way and shown round. It may sound like a cliche but it was all that we hoped it would be. The cottage was tastefully furnished with all mod cons. The bedrooms were lovely, spacious and the beds were incredibly comfortable. The kitchen had everything we would possibly need and the lounge was an ideal place to relax in the evenings with an assortment of dvd's for all the family to enjoy. There was an abundance of local visitor information and a child friendly garden which had a barbeque for our use. We will definately return but next time without the children!"

A home from home.
"We stayed in the wildflower cottage on our honeymoon. It is in a wonderful quiet location yet is only a short 5 min drive from Newquay. We awoke every morning to the beautiful sounds of the birds, lambs and horses. The cottage is very homely and welcoming. The jacuzzi in the bathroom is a real treat. It is a great pllace to stay."

Great place to stay, lovely people and beautiful cottages
"We stayed in Spider's Web cottage with two small children. The cottage is a great place stay and explore Cornwall. Julia and William are perfect hosts and clearly take pride in the accommodation they provide. The cottage is very comfortable and has bags of character. The location is quiet and quaint and well deserves the high ratings on this site. We will be going back soon and will be recommending it highly to friends and family."

A haven in Porth
"Having now made 4 visits to Hendra Paul Cottages and having stayed in all but Badger's Sett, I can only say that the comfort and content of these beautiful cottages is second to none! The surroundings are perfect for relaxation, peace and tranquility. The centre of Newquay being close enough if needed. My first visit in October 2007 was for the wedding of my daughter when quite a group of us occupied Barn Owl Cottage, so many happy memories there then! As for Julia and William - lovely, welcoming and helpful whenever needed."

"Julia and William are both very welcome and made my girlfriend and myself feel very welcome. Hendra Paul has a real homely feel to it. We stayed in the Spiders Web Cottage which was totally mind blowing when the door was opened! An amazing peaceful place to relax, I cannot say enough good things about this amazing place!. A must see. Ben"

"A little gem"
"Have been visiting Hendra Paul Cottages for at least 15 years and have stayed in Wild Flower, Spiders Web, Badgers Sett and Barn Owl.The cottages have been upgraded recently and I believe that further upgrades are planned in the near future (new kitchen in Barn Owl and new en suite in Spiders Web already completed).Excellent quiet position just 4 miles from Newquay. Facilities in all the cottages are very good but not everyone will take to the new memory foam matteresses provided. All in all once visited I'm sure that many repeat visits will occur- A little gem!!"
