We absolutely loved the cottage and will definitely be back for another stay. Perfect size and location for us and out 2 boys of 11 and 13 and well located for everywhere we wanted to go. It was cosy, and exactly what we wanted. The owner Kim was just brilliant and cant wait to come back.

Great location, just off the A30, but without any of the noise of traffic, and ideally situated for beaches and day trips. St Erth park and ride was perfect for day trips to St Ives. Cottage was as we expected, cosy and with enough space for our children, age 3 and 5. Parking was right outside the cottage, or across the road. Yard with outside tap Read morewas great for rinsing the sand off and drying wet suits. We really enjoyed our stay. Hide

A lovely, well appointed cottage in a convenient location for exploring Cornwall.

Reviewed by Morian 5th July 2019

The cottage was adequate but should be highlighted how close it is to the A30 in case any families were to rent the cottage.

Good personal contact with owner. Excellent base for south of Cornwall.

North Cornwall

Embark on clifftop wanderings along the South West Coast Path to discover ancient myths and legends; King Arthur at Tintagel Castle, or the giant at the Bedruthan Steps. Surfers flock here to ride the famous swell that carved the dramatic coastline, and Bude and Newquay are havens for the sport. From sandy bays and beaches to the seafood delights of Padstow or thrills of Camel Creek Adventure Park, North Cornwall is brimming with things to do; trails to trek, cream teas to gobble, and adventure to be had.

West Cornwall

Let the history, romance and raw beauty of West Cornwall whisk you through time, into rocky coves and along sweeping sands to Land’s End where the UK slips into the Atlantic. Discover an oasis of flora owed to the rare geology of the Lizard peninsula. You can kayak around Godrevy Island, wander the galleries of St Ives, catch a performance at the open-air Minack Theatre, and still make it to Marazion for dinner: St Michael’s Mount makes the ultimate backdrop.

South Cornwall

Tucked away from the swell of the Atlantic pretty fishing harbours sleep, and lush carpets of greenery roll up to craggy cliffs. Discover the fishing and smuggling history in Kingsand and Cawsand, or walk the South West Coast Path from Fowey to the tiny tidal beach at Readymoney Cove. Sample local ales in St Austell before visiting Charlestown’s tall ships, the enchantments of the Eden Project, or The Lost Gardens of Heligan. From vibrant towns to secret beaches and exhilarating days out, the south has it all.
