The Cathedral City of Truro is in the heart of Cornwall and offers a wealth of facilities for the visitor. Dominated by the stunning cathedral, it is one of the south west's most attractive cities. Lemon Quay plays host to many events throughout the year including the Cornwall Food & Drink Festival in the Autumn and the famous Truro Fatstock Show just before Christmas. Regular farmers markets occur every Wednesdays & Saturday and there are also arts & craft markets on Saturdays. There is a wonderful range of shopping for the visitor including all the regular high street stores including Marks & Spencer, Tescos & Sainsburys, but also a wide range of more specialist stores.

Truro has a superb range of restaurants from Bustopher Jones & Mannings on Lemon Street to the always popular Pizza Express. There are lively bars, pubs & nightclubs including the superb Old Ale House, a busy Wetherspoons and the infamous L2 if you are so inclined! The Hall for Cornwall hosts everything from Shakespeare to rock concerts and the cinema on Lemon Street has all the latest releases.

Guest from Somersham, Huntingdon stayed for 14 nights.

An ideal location for exploring cornwall

Our stay at the Sunlight Cottage was excellent. It provided an ideal location for exploring Cornwall with easy access to the A30. The owners were very friendly and helpful but at the same time discrete. The cottage was well kept and well provided for and the gardens were lovelly. The bedrooms were spacious and had plenty of storage space for clothing etc. Our only negative comment would be that we felt the kitchen / living room was a little short of work surfaces and storage space for food etc. Not a problem if you eat out a lot or have small kids, but as a family of 4, including 2 teenage kids, we needed to store a larger quantity of food.

Ideal for Truro and surrounding areas

Great base camp for weekend activities in and around Truro, including Newquay, lands end, port Isaac, Falmouth, Camborne (Chinese) and most importantly Truro football club. A great time we all had coming down from Maidstone. Very good value for money, home from home and everything provided.

A real gem of a cottage

We are so happy we have found this getaway. We have family in Cornwall and this cottage is in the perfect place to visit all over this beautiful county. We hope that the cottage will be free next time we come down. As you can see above, cleanliness, comfort, location and value for money, all excellent. We also enjoyed the biscuits and wine that the owners left. We cannot recommend more highly this lovely place. Thank you very much and we hope to see you again soon.

Wonderful week in Cornwall

John and Jill Tisdale were lovely hosts who could not have done more to make us feel welcome. The cottage is set in the heart of beautiful countryside and, being close to Truro, very centrally positioned enabling us to see as much of Cornwall as possible. It was a pretty little cottage and very comfortable.

I can't recommend the Sunlight Cottage enough. John and Jill are lovely hosts and the cottage is very comfortable. The location is close enough to a number of attractions and places worth visiting. Overall an excellent stay.

Our second visit to Sunlight Cottage

A nice two bedroom cottage central to the Truro area, well appointed and cosy. The owners, Jill and John were very helpfull and welcoming. We took advantage of nearby Newquey airport to visit the Isles of Scilly for a daytrip. We also went to Fowey for lunch on the riverside, the Minac theatre and saw a play and visited many beaches and villages. There is a good pub in the village that does good food, and an exalent village shop/post office/off licence. You are made welcome to explore the five acres of garden that the property sits in. Truro has a farmers market on Wednesday and Saturdays.

Beautiful Home From Home!

We stayed here for 2 months during the coldest winter months, and in spite of the below par temperatures, we had a cosy, comfortable stay in Sunlight. John and Jill are the loveliest hosts - attentive and friendly, whilst also respecting space. The cottage itself is very well equipped - even for our long stay which was not holiday time but a short let whilst settling into a new area. The cottage is finished very thoughtfully too making it feel very homely and welcoming. John and Jill couldn't have been more helpful - from the welcome on arrival, to popping down with post that had arrived for us, and replacing the TV when the other had given up the ghost! Only one tip - a little hand blender in the kitchen would be fantastic for us foodies! All in all, a fantastic stay and we would highly recommend whether for a short or longer-term let. Cornwalls Cottages were very efficient and professional.

Guest from Frome stayed for 4 nights.

Excellent customer service

The customer service was above and beyond expectations. We received very welcome recommendations on where to visit, including up-to-date information on events. When we said that we had forgotten towels, they were quickly provided. After being informed of an event that was on that day, we called in to find out more information and were given maps and information to help us on our day out and John went on the internet to provide us with all the details and directions we needed. We were very impressed with the garden and it has inspired us to make changes to our own garden. The location is good for road links to easily reach many areas of interest. Try and avoid travelling through Truro unless you need to, however, as we found it very busy.

Family Holiday

We are a family of 5 (2 adults, 2 older children and 1 infant) and we had a wonderful week long stay in Sunlight Cottage. We have a lovely warm welcome from the owners and the accommodation had everything we wanted, including a high chair, travel cot and a baby bath and ducks for little one! A really comfortable, well equipped cottage in a great central location to explore Cornwall, we would love to return!

short break holiday

a great base for exploring the Fal Estuary- the city of Truro - Eden Project and too many other attractions to list- the cottage is in a lovely setting- easy to find - friendly hosts - the cottage was well equipped and comfy - really enjoyed our stay ! shame that the Wi-Fi was intermittent- more off than on- that may be a boon for some- but it made it harder to go online for exploring websites for local attractions.

Really helpful

Our stay at the cottage was excellent, we had a problem with the steps down to the cottage as my father is quite frail, when I spoke with the owners they arranged for a handrail to be installed, you really don't get such care given to customers very often. I would recommend the cottage unreservedly.
