If you want peace and wonderful scenery ,to wake in the morning to see the animals in the field this is the place. Kathleen and Gary went out of their way to make us feel at home, thank you both.

It is rare these days to be warmly greeted, and in a calm and non-intrusive way, to be provided with every comfort. Kathleen and Garrick are ideal hosts who were caring throughout our stay. From the welcoming scones and Cornish cream waiting for us in the fridge, and the fresh flowers, to the departing gift of a large bag full of Bramley apples, our every possible wish was catered for. It is perhaps not surprising that this year was the second time we have been to Wheal Basset Farm, and we are hoping to be able to return next year.

Beautiful location, so peaceful and quiet. The owners are lovely and very helpful. The caravan is so well equipped with plenty of everything, we stayed there on the hottest week this year and found the van did not get hot at night. Would recommend this holiday home to others. Just the best ever. Thank you Kathleen and Garry
