What our visitors say

Totally recommend John's Dory house. We were two couples with two toddlers (others staying in Crow’s Nest) house was enough spacious.
I stayed at Overstrand with my parents and my 8-year-old daughter in July 2013. The apartment was very comfortable, with everything you could need for your stay. The location was great.
On top of a shopping centre, but in a separate gated enclave, these are well maintained and quiet 'houses', which are fully equipped and sleep four easily.
We had a wonderful holiday staying at Mast Tops. The house was very clean and had everything you could want for - and the welcome pack was very useful too!
We stayed here on our honeymoon, while touring through UK, this cottage was very well equipped and we found it to be lovely and clean. Brilliant location in walking distance of everything we could need.
Our usual bunch decided to organize a get together in Cornwall this year as opposed to the usual choices. And we couldn't have made a better choice!
All the years we have been coming to Cornwall (40) we hadn't realised this holiday home existed! What a find, so convenient to anywhere.
What a place! The kids were thrilled to be staying in a proper home on holiday and it really feel like that!
A fantastic stay at Mast Tops. Great amenities with lots of space for a family of four with teenagers.
The house is as clean and excellent as always. Probably our 4th stay in John's Dory and wouldn't want to stay anywhere else.
Our first stay at John's Dory - a great success! We felt so welcome and very much at home. Wharfside is also very good as a starting point for all kinds of excursions around West Cornwall.
We would have no hesitation in recommending this property or returning for a future holiday.
