De lokatie is goed<br/><br/>Het 2 persoonsbed is te smal.



Overall our stay was okay. There were 4 adults and 2 children staying over the Easter bank holiday. <br/>Positive points were modern decor to the property,comfy beds,playground and swimming pool on site and good location close to Plymouth and other local attractions. <br/>Negative points - you need to pay additional insurance (read the small print on the booking). Property much smaller than photos on Airbnb (not really space in kitchen/dining area for 6). My mum described it as the size of a static caravan with nicer decor.Front door jammed and took a while to open with the key. Parking is far and no allocated car parking space as suggested. The property is up a steep incline. This was a challenge with young kids and elderly parents. We struggled a few times finding parking. No toiletries (no hand soap in bathrooms, not enough toilet paper - 2 rolls for family of 6 over 3 night booking.) I'm not sure how well cleaned the property - Beer cans in bedroom bins, dust under sofas.

A nicely decorated and maintained holiday cottage with a superb aspect from the decking towards the River Tamar. Our only issue was the second TV did not work and although our hosts were responsive to our messages nothing was resolved so our teenagers were stuck having to negotiate the family TV. The kitchen was well stocked, a slimline weighing scales would be a great addition. We had a great time visiting in the area, running on park and swimming in the pool. Thank you.



Really great accommodation - warm and comfortable - had everything we needed for our stay



Facilities and comfort - two bathrooms, including a bath, three good sized bedrooms, well equipped kitchen, second tv in one bedroom, comfortable, clean, nice gift on arrival and some tea, coffee, milk sachets to get started with. Good shared leisure facilities within the holiday site.<br/><br/>Hard to get hold of anyone to answer queries until it was too late for the answer to be useful. Too many repetitive and long emails about the booking. The property guide has the wrong wi-fi code in it (although the correct code was available on the router). The property guide also gave the wrong instructions for using the onsite swimming pool, referring to a leisure card instead of the online booking form, and when we contacted the host and stay service they didn't have the right instructions either, so it took a while to sort out.



Robin's Nest was perfect for our family to meet up with plenty of space for 4 adults and 2 children. Thoughtful gift on arrival and very well equipped so we were able to cater meals easily and eat socially. The whole place was clean and tidy with comfortable beds. The site itself was quiet and easy to find, near to Callington for eating out and supplies and Cotehele for a great day out. We made use of the pool, which the children enjoyed (needed to contact our host for the password as booking was online, but they responded quickly, so no problem at all) We would definitely recommend and book again.



Clean, well maintained, heating was superb, beds were comfortable. Has washer/ dryer if needed, dish washer etc couldn’t need more<br/><br/>Steps and slope to the property are a bit steep but didn’t cause any problems



Nice and modern very clean !<br/><br/>Nothing



Very beautiful home, not very convenient but quiet location. The heating in the house was well provided. However, there were a few things to note:<br/>- we had difficulty locking the main door and thought there was issue with the lock. Contacted the Host and Stay but they were not able to give clear instructions. We only figured it out the next morning how to lock the door.<br/>- the host was very responsive in replying to the emails, but no action taken.<br/>- insufficient toilet paper rolls provided. Only two 1/2 rolls were provided for 6 guests staying for 2 nights. When we contacted the host, they initially said they only provide 2 rolls of toilet paper, but later promised to send few more the next day, but it didn't happen. It caused so much inconvenience to us. <br/>- No access card provided to the swimming pool and gym as stated<br/>- The photo of the front of the house should be provided as there were a few steps on slopes to the house which can be difficult for people with disability.





Great communication from the host. super quick and responsive. place looked just like the photos. loved the fact that there were 2 bathroom showers( worked well for a group of 6 ladies) . <br/>really great stay, highly recommend. <br/>thank you!







The apartment was really nice and beautiful. Very spacious and clean. The swimming pool was not too far from the apartment. There is no private indoor pool as advertised on the website. It's a shared pool by the whole leisure village.<br/><br/>The kitchen sink was leaking, the electric was not working for the most part of the apartment. Despite reporting this few hours after check in, no one came over to get this fixed throughout our stay. Food in the fridge went bad, we could not make hot food for our little one. Kettle and microwave didn't work.



Good value for money



Very beautiful home,<br/>Not far from activities.<br/>Access to swimming pool and gym.<br/>Very responsive host.<br/>Will love to visit again.



Great stay, well equipped, exceptionally clean great facilities on site , fantastic for children with a little play area 2 mins from the sort and the pool not much further.



We were extremely pleased with our stay at Robins nest. We will definitely rebook. The oark that it is on is quiet and friendly. Perfect for us





The house is located in a lovely place, with the pool as an extra entertainment for the kids. The house decorations is absolutely beautiful and Morden, with everything that we needed during our stay.<br/><br/>The house had quite a few dog hairs and could smell it too. We had to buy a few sprays to keep the smell off. Other than that, everything was amazing
