  • "Lovely place and very quirky in an ideal relaxed place."

    Great views from the upstairs lounge and a snug place with the fire going downstairs. All the necessary facilities were to hand and the scones, jam, cream, milk, coffee and tea were gladly received. Not sure where the clear bag was for the recycling so we simply brought it home to recycle here. Highly recommend this cottage and being on the Lizard peninsula was quiet and very relaxing with great walking all around.

  • "I have really nothing to add but just one suggestion."

    It would be useful to have a second set of keys.

  • "Cottage was in a lovely quiet location."

    Cosy feel to the decor, well equipped, and relaxing. However mattresses and sofas a little tired and thus not as comfortable as they could be. Also heating throughout upstairs and main living room downstairs a little archaic( night storage and fan heaters) and thus we were cold for 48 hrs as this part of the property takes a day or two to warm up. Rayburn in Kitchen, underfloor in downstairs bathroom all great. Wasn’t sure if one could get logs from anywhere, but we ran out of those supplied in a few days, thankfully had brought some of our own.! WiFi was vulnerable to dropping out every few minutes for most of the week. Possibly due to very stormy weather. Might be worth trying to find a more secure signal. I hope this is useful to the proprietors, as we will definitely be coming back,as despite the above suggestions, we loved our time in the cottage/ area..

  • "Outside table needs resealing or replacing as the seating and table were always damp and could not be used."

    Thankfully we took our own chairs.

  • "It was the most idyllic place we have ever stayed."

    Having holidayed in the area for 37 years this was by far the best place. The cottage was everything we wanted and more.Every detail thought of. The children loved it. Thank you for the super clean house and the feeling that we were the first ones there especially in these strange times. We have already booked for February and next August. The only down side is that’s 6 months away! Thank you again

About the location


Helston 12 miles.

On the eastern side of The Lizard Peninsula, the pretty village of St Keverne, lying just 1.25 miles inland, is the focal point for this area, with its village pubs and shops surrounding the village square, and an impressive church spire, at one time used to guide the Cornish fishermen home. From St Keverne, you can easily explore the natural and spectacular beauty of the Lizard Peninsula by car, bicycle or on foot. You will find walled fishing harbours, tiny secret coves, sandy bays and dramatic clifftop walks along the South West Coastal path. Just north is the Helford River, a yachtsman's dream and home to Frenchman's Creek, and picturesque Helford village. A short walk takes you to Roskilly’s Farm, where you can tuck in to ice cream to die for. Further afield, visit Falmouth, with one of the world's largest natural harbours, Pendennis Castle built by Henry VIII, and of course you cannot miss out on a trip to The National Maritime Museum.
