Peaceful location

In my opinion, this cottage really does have it all! Peaceful location, stunning interior with lots of added high spec features, great hosts. We thoroughly enjoyed our week long stay over Christmas and will definitely return. You will not be disappointed. Thank you Nick and family.

From: Melanie – December 2019

absolutely exceptional

The cottage is finished to an absolutely exceptional standard with all the modern gadgets you could wish for. A huge smart TV with Netflix, Amazon Prime etc built in. Nest heating systems, Bluetooth mirror in the bathroom. Automatic spotlights in the hallway to save you having to turn on the lights at night. At the same time the cottage really retains its original features and the log burner and wooden beams made it so cozy. The location of the cottage was a little daunting at first, (down a single track lane) but we soon got used to it and found (per the owners advice) that taking the road via Porth is by far the easiest option. We had a peaceful and comfortable winter stay. I only wish we could have stayed longer!! I am sure we will be back.

10/10 for everything

“10/10 for everything! Exactly what we were looking for, cottage was absolutely beautiful and the cleanliness was next level! Can’t wait to come back, thanks again Nick!”

From: Alexandria – December 2019

high standard throughout

“Beautiful cottage that’s been done to a very high standard throughout. Escaped for a few days and a lovely place to just chill out. Good location for all the local beaches. Would highly recommend and would definitely stay here again.”

From: Atlanta – November 2019

enjoyed our time at bullpen

We stayed for 4 nights and really enjoyed our time at Bullpen! We particularly loved the kitchen – it was so well equipped. Great fire and smartTV to relax in front of (along with board games!) if you get struck by rain like we did… we didn’t actually mind as it was nice and cosy indoors! Comfy beds and great bathroom. Lovely and sparkling clean – we’d definitely recommend for a chilled break in a great location for Watergate Bay and Newquay.

From: Robyn – November 2019

we had a great time

Highly highly recommend Nick as a host. We arrived at an awkward time in the early hours of the morning and it wasn’t a problem at all. He was welcoming and when we had any issues with places to go or best places to eat he was just a message away with a very quick response. The cottage itself is beautiful and me and Emily where blown away as it’s a lot better than we expected. It is a very clean and modern cottage which is also very cosy. The place was equipped with everything anyone could need. Overall couldn’t rate the host or the stay any higher. Thanks Nick we had a great time!!

From: Ben – November 2019

the perfect balance of modern vs traditional

Bullpen Cottage is such a find! Finished to an excellent standard with everything you could possibly need. Nick and Loz were fantastic hosts and communication was excellent. They are also just next door so on hand if you need anything (within reason!). Location wise, a stone’s throw from Porth Beach and Watergate Bay, up the end of a private lane and totally secluded. We had shocking weather and enjoyed locking ourselves away with the roaring fire. If you want the perfect balance of modern vs traditional and all mod cons in a sparkling clean, stylish renovation with brilliant hosts in a secluded location then this is for you! Can also highly recommend Scott & Babs for lunch/dinner but be sure to book as it’s very popular! Thanks again to Nick & Lauren for their advice and a wonderful stay. We will be back!

From: Gemma – November 2019

beautifully presented

We’ve stayed in a lot of holiday rental properties (and indeed own one ourselves) but Bullpen Cottage must rank up there as one of the most stylish, and beautifully presented! It really is a stunning property refurbishment – it’s also extremely well maintained and spotlessly clean. Apparently it was completed 3 years ago, but you’d think it was done in the last few months… Sadly we stayed only one night, as a result of an early return from the Scilly Isles via Newquay airport – so were unable to do justice to the house and location, but would absolutely not hesitate to recommend it. Thank you!

From: Rob – October 2019

first class accommodation

“Excellent host. Fantastic communication, combined with first class, stylish accommodation in a beautiful location!”

From: Cs – October 2019

simply one of the best

Bullpen Cottage is a traditional but seriously stylish cottage – perfectly kitted put for pretty much any need you may have. Great friendly hosts on site who made sure we had everything we needed. This is simply one of the best Airbnb’s we have ever stayed at

From: Mick – September 2019

a hidden gem

This place really is a hidden gem. You need a car as it is a rural location but once you find it, it’s definitely worth the effort. It is a gorgeous cottage with fantastic interiors and everything you could want / need. Nick was easy to communicate with and before we arrived he gave us lots of recommendations for things to do and places to go and there’s lots more information at the cottage. Would highly recommend this place, we loved it.

From: Laura – September 2019

good location

Nick is a lovely man and a great host. Amazing cozy cottage, very beautiful and quiet. Perfect place to rest from the noisy of the city. It is a good location close to Newquay and Watergate Bay with lovely coastal walks and attractions nearby. We had a great stay and looking forward to coming again!

From: Marta – September 2019

enchanting family cottage

The high attention to detail in this enchanting family cottage is benchmark for all AirBnB hosts going forward! Chefs will be inspired to make new dishes after a day at the beach with the huge array of top end cooking equipment and fun chic cookbooks. The living room is a truly relaxing environment where you can curl up in front of the fireplace and read a book, play boardgames or vegetate watching the telly. There is a secured courtyard for nippers to run wild and a BBQ with coals and firelighters supplied for the outdoor cooking experience. Bedrooms were very clean, spacious and comfortable. The shower… what can I say? Soooooo, good.

From: Corin – August 2019

peaceful stay

“very nice cottage, very well equipped kitchen. peaceful stay”

From: Ben – August 2019

top of the range amenities

“Wonderful cottage with top of the range amenities. From the appliances, Austrian doors (which shift quietly), light sensors, and motion detectors at the stairs. There’s a BOSCH washing machine and tumble dryer. USB connections in the power points, Villeroy and Boch bathroom, and a huge TV! A huge fridge, and top of the range china from Le Creuset … the list goes on. There’s also a lot of useful information and material for local restaurants etc.”

From: Denise – July 2019

Perfect location

A fantastic cottage with thoughtful touches and high-spec finishes. The place was immaculately clean and incredibly well-equipped. We couldn’t wish for anything more. Perfect location too right near to Watergate Bay, Mawgan Porth and Bedruthan Steps.

From: Harriet – June 2019

Everything you need

“This place is brilliant, it’s extremely practical for a group of 4. The finish is really good with everything you need for a short stay.

Amazing wood burner

“Beautiful, inviting cottage with an amazing wood burner. Would make an awesome romantic weekend away or a family weekend with the beaches so close. Lovely hospitality from friendly owners. Would definitely recommend and I would book again.”

From: Jane – January 2019

Gem in the countryside

“Bullpen Cottage is an amazing gem in the countryside in Cornwall. It has been finished to a high quality standard in which you can spend an evening in cooking, playing games with a glass of wine by the log burner or just relaxing or visiting some amazing local restaurants (lusty glaze was incredible). A great location close to Newquay and Watergate Bay, with lovely coastal walks and attractions nearby – It’s definitely worth a stay at the Bullpen Cottage.”

From: Jade – December 2018

From: Eric – November 2018

Spotlessly clean, very stylish

“Enjoyed a lovely two night stay at the cottage. Spotlessly clean and very stylish. Nick could not have been more helpful and even lit the fire before my arrival.”

From: Sarah – November 2018

Great host

“We had a wonderful stay at Bullpen Cottage. The cottage is immaculately clean and very comfortable, it has everything you could need for a relaxing stay. We loved the log fire and the big bath – perfect after some wintery walks on the beaches nearby. Nick was a great host and we would really recommend a visit.”

From: Amy – November 2018

Absolutely amazing

“Nicks house is absolutely amazing, it has everything you need and more. I love how modern it is and the location is great, I couldn’t recommend staying here anymore – it is lush. Personal added touches were helpful and we were used the local guide on where to eat.”

From: Joanna – October 2018

Cosy, modern cottage

“Lovely, Very clean, cosy, modern cottage with all that you need for a chilled holiday.”

From: Helen – October 2018

Amazing, with great touches

“Nick’s cottage was amazing, with great touches like le creuset kitchenware that made cooking so easy, and automatic hallway night lights for any wandering around in the dark in an unfamiliar place It was beautifully decorated and stacked with guidance on local attractions if you didn’t bring an hour-by-hour schedule with you. Lastly, Nick and his family were really friendly and welcoming. We will definitely be back.”

From: Dan – October 2018

Character-filled property

“Nick and Lauren were the perfect hosts. Always available when needed and very helpful, but never in the way. Bullpen Cottage is a delightful, character-filled property, owned by a very talented and creative couple. Nick himself relatively recently renovated Bullpen to a very high standard, with beautiful finishes throughout. An amazing transformation of a 400 year old building. The cottage was spotlessly clean on our arrival. There are lots of thoughtful, yet high-tech touches, such as plenty of power outlets incorporating USB outlets. All this, in addition to lovely welcome gifts of chilled white wine in the fridge and, fresh out of Lauren’s oven, scones! As it was starting to get a little chilly in the evening, Nick provided us with some logs and fire starters to have a real wood fire. We didn’t need it at all, as the Nest thermostat provided abundant heat throughout the house. But who could resist sitting by a proper fire with a glass of something to warm the soul? We would have no hesitation in heartily recommending Bullpen Cottage.”

From: Ian – September 2018

Stylish and well built

“Nick and Lauren are great hosts. Bullpen was fabulous, very clean, well equipped, stylish and well built. Thank you, we’ll be back.”

From: Leonie- September 2018

Places to visit

“We enjoyed our stay at the Bullpen Cottage, such a beautiful home with added extras that made our stay so much easier. We made use of the in-house guide that helped us with places to visit and restaurants to try, a visit to Padstow and St Ives is a must. Thank you for all the added extras in your home that made our stay extra special and thank you for our warm scones on arrival. Such a nice touch. We will be back for another visit!”

From: Kirsty – August 2018

A beautiful cottage

“A beautiful cottage boasting a fantastic high end finish. It has everything you would need like a home from home. That alongside the homemade scones on our arrival made our stay truly fantastic. A great find.”

From: Suzanne – August 2018

An amazing stay

“We had an amazing stay at Nick and Lauren’s beautiful house. It was even more beautiful than the photos – very stylish, modern and clean – and a stunning kitchen. very warm welcome – did not want to go home! Thank you Nick and family – we will be back! “

From: Maria – July 2018

Extremely well equipped

“Nick and his family have done a stellar job with this newish renovation. The interior design is top notch and extremely well equipped especially in the kitchen. We loved taking a pew at the kitchen island while preparing supper and seamlessly wandering outside to the stylish decking. Nick and his family were also excellent hosts and very friendly which made you most at ease. We will be back!”

From: Simon – July 2018

The best

“Dear Nick and Lauren, Bullpen Cottage is presumably the best AirBnB we have ever stayed in. Your attention to detail is magnificent and all you offer is definitely worth the price. It allowed us to take some time off work and regain both mental and physical strength, living up to a common Swiss standard. Indulging in endless strolls and runs along the shore and experiencing Newquay and all other hotspots of Cornwall at their best, this one-week stay has certainly made us want to come back here as soon as possible! So keep up the good work and hope to see you again soon. Best, Christoph and Laura”

From: Christoph and Laura – July 2018

Lot’s of places to go

“Just WOW! From the welcome to the suggestions of lot’s of places to go, to the goodbye! The cottage is simply beautiful, stylish and impeccably clean. We were absolutely blown away by the whole experience and can’t thank Nick and his family enough. One of the girls has arranged to come and stay again for her birthday and I have recommended it to my parents. Stunning place and lovely hosts! I can not recommend enough! Thank you Nick and co”

From: Laura – June 2018

Luxurious and comfortable

“The cottage is really well equipped and is super stylish. Nick has really made the space luxurious and comfortable. Nick was a great host and made check in really easy. He was also very quick to respond to any questions before our stay. The cottage is really well equipped and is super stylish. I Would highly recommend anyone stay here! We would definitely come back.”

From: Nikki – June 2018

Best beaches in Cornwall

“Outstanding property in an exceptional location just minutes from one of the best beaches in Cornwall. Spotlessly clean, very comfortable and total silence to relax. All the amenities we could possible have hoped for, and Nick (and family) were super friendly and offered us plenty of local knowledge. We’ll 100% recommend and stay here on our next visit to beautiful Cornwall.”

From: Ian – June 2018

Top Quality

Great location

“Beautifully renovated cottage with a great location. Couldn’t recommend enough!”
From: Pascale – April 2018

This place is a gem

As an experienced Airbnb host myself, I consider Nick’s place to be the best Airbnb place I have visited. This place is a gem and that’s an understatement. The whole place was in perfect condition in all aspects. Having a fireplace was a bonus which made our time here extra special. I loved what Nick and his family has done to the cottage and I would rate it 10 out of 5 stars if I could. Nick was a fantastic host and his family were kind and friendly. I’ll be back!”

From: Kuo-Yen – March 2018

Sparkling Clean

“My partner and I stayed at the cottage for two nights and couldn’t fault the experience. As soon as we arrived Nick came out to give us a tour of the cottage and had the fire already lit and thriving for us when we came in.

It was very spacious, with a large kitchen and felt very homely. There were lots of surprises when looking around- Pastries in the kitchen, tea and coffee supplies with fresh bottled milk and puzzles and games to keep you entertained. What I especially liked is the fact that the TV in the house was very easy to operate allowing you to access Netflix and Amazon etc, lovely to settle down in the evening with the fire on. Also it was all SPARKLING clean! Actually felt clean coming out of the shower rather than dirtier, unlike some other places I have stayed. It is slightly away from the local beaches, but it is only a 5 minute drive which allows you a chance to explore the beautiful countryside surrounding it! Overall everything about the place and our stay was great and we can’t wait to come back again!”

From: Oliver – February 2018

Great host and great cottage

“The cottage is absolutely beautiful. Its secluded out of the way but a 10 minute drive into Newquay town. Cabs are cheap and easy to get if you don’t want to drive. Lovely and peaceful. The cottage was extremely clean and has everything you need. The log burner was a lovely touch as kept us warm on the cold windy days. Will most definitely be returning. We cant wait to plan our next trip! Cant recommend Nick and his cottage enough! Great host and great cottage.”

From: Holly – January 2018

The cottage is beautifully decorated, clean and fully stocked

“We had a fabulous short break at Bullpen Cottage. The cottage is beautifully decorated, clean and fully stocked with all you need for a relaxing break by the sea.

We are a family of 4 (2 adults, 2 kids aged 11 and 5) and it was perfect for us. Best bits – the woodburner, efficient nest heating (important in October!) comfy beds & linen, and top quality appliances. Nick and Lauren have created one of the nicest stays we’ve ever enjoyed on Airbnb and we hope to visit again soon!”

From: Kerry – October 2017

peaceful location

“Stunning cottage not far from Newquay in a wonderfully peaceful location. Beautifully turned out property with great kitchen, bathroom and bedrooms.”
From: Oliver – October 2017

The perfect place

“Me and my husband decided to take our son and both our mums away for a break in Cornwall and Bullpen Cottage was the perfect place to have stayed. Not only were we able to check in earlier but we were welcomed to some local Cornish goodies on arrival.”

Leading up to the stay Nick called several times to check we were happy with the booking and if i had any questions. He was also able to give me a great recommendation for a restaurant to book for a special occasion, which we loved so much we went back again. The pictures do not do Bullpen Cottage any justice, from the appliances to the fixtures everything is of a high standard, which for our family made our stay a very comfortable one. We couldn’t recommend staying at Bullpen Cottage enough. We cannot fault the cottage or the service we received and we’ll definitely be returning to Bullpen soon. Thank you again Nick for a wonderful stay and all your help.”

From: Bhavika – September 2017

Surpassed expectations

“We had a fantastic few days away. The property is gorgeous – the design and decor of the house, and equipment of the kitchen surpassed expectations.”
From: Kerry – August 2017

“It is located in a quiet hamlet and has a great outdoor space to enjoy the sunshine. It is also very well located to enjoy the local area. Whilst you need a car, there are so many places to visit within such a short distance. Nick and Lauren are the perfect hosts. We enjoyed their home baked scones on arrival and appreciated all the suggestions they made of places to go.”

“We cannot recommend this place highly enough!”

A perfect stay

“Absolutely beautiful cottage in a stunning location surrounded by the fields by the river minutes away from the beaches of Porth and Watergate bay.

From: Anna – August 2017

The cottage has everything you need for a perfect stay!

Very hip and stylish interior design with a lot of attention to detail. The hosts did an absolutely amazing job with the renovation, interior design and of course the outdoor areas. Surely one of the best places we have ever stayed in Cornwall. The hosts were very welcoming and delightful! It was so kind and nice of them to bake a huge tray of the most delicious scones for our arrival! We would definitely be back next Summer!!!”

The location is fantastic

“This house is superb, immaculate and has everything that you could wish for.”

“The location is fantastic with stunning beaches just minutes away.”
From: Sara – August 2017

High quality cottage

“Bullpen Cottage ist ein sehr geschmackvoll und hochwertig eingerichtetes Cottage mit einem sehr schönen Außenbereich mit Grillplatz. Es lassen sich super entspannte Tage dort verbringen. Da unser Navi versagte, wurden wir sogar von Nick bei Newquay abgeholt. Der Empfang war sehr herzlich (und köstlich).”


Bullpen Cottage is a very tasteful and high quality furnished cottage with a very nice outdoor area with barbecue. It’s super relaxed spending the day there. As our navy failed, we were even picked up by Nick at Newquay. The welcome was very warm (and delicious).

From: Heike – August 2017

Relaxing and luxurious

“We’ve just (reluctantly) come back from 9 days at Bullpen Cottage; Lower Trewince Farm, and we’re all talking about when we can next go back. Nick and Loz are genuinely warm and friendly hosts. They have created the most beautiful, stylish, well equipped bolt hole in a quiet, picturesque location close to Newquay and within striking distance of several great beaches.

From: Julie – August 2017

In fact; the cottage is so cosy, some days we welcomed the inclement weather so we could just hang out at home, light the log fire and cook up a storm in the kitchen, which was obviously created and fitted out by fellow foodies.

The cottage has been renovated and refurbished with a great deal of thought, heart and attention to detail. We whole heartedly recommend it if you’re looking for a relaxing, luxurious, home from home experience.”
