  • "This cottage was absolutely beautiful."

    The rooms were all well equipped and light and airy. Will definitely go back again. The driveway was tight but manoeuvred ok and had been pre warned. All you hear is bird song with no traffic as off the beaten track. There is nothing at all to complain about this cottage except wanted to stay longer but with work commitments couldn’t.

    Thank you so much for the kind feedback. We are really pleased that you enjoyed your stay in the cottage. Property Owner

    Cottage clean and tidy with milk in the fridge and a basket of treats on arrival, much appreciated. The cottage is in a perfect location for exploring south west Cornwall. Would recommend and book again, now going on our preferred list of cottages.

    Well presented modern and clean . The garden was beautiful and if we hadn't been so busy out and about would have lived to have used it more .It was like another room . The position to local beauty spots and places to go was ideal . The fact the cottage has ample parking was also a plus .We have an Audi A3 and had no trouble . We visited the local pub The Lion and the Lamb and found it to friendly and welcoming and the food was good too . We had a warm welcome frome Perry and Julie to ,plus a little goodie pack and fresh milk ! There are so many more places to explore I'm sure we will be back .Highly recommended

  • "We have had a wonderful stay at Honeysuckle Cottage, despite wet weather and a poorly baby!"

    It was spotlessly clean, comfortable and peaceful. The garden is lovely, and the cottage is perfect for families with young children. The driveway was not a problem at all, so don't be put off by other reviews. We have a chunky estate car, and it was easy enough to negotiate reversing out of the driveway and onto the lane. This is a great spot to explore some of the best of Cornwall, with so much on the doorstep. We'll be back!

  • "A quiet, comfortable dwelling with a pleasant interior and layout A good location with plenty of interesting walks from the door We did not rate the local pub (Lion and Lamb) It appears to be changing hands but may well bounce back We are sorry to say that vehicular access is a real problem."

    A rough potholed and narrow track leads to the property. Manoeuvring is difficult and protracted; even a Mini would have difficulties. There appeared to be no other options within a reasonable distance

    Thank you for your feedback and we are pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay at the property. With regard to the local pub we have only had positive comments from other guests. It is pub grub served here but, locally in Porthleven, you have a vast supply of excellent quality food establishments. The lane to the cottage is an unmade, single-track lane, with Cornish cottages along one side. We actually own a 4x4 and we have no trouble turning the vehicle within the driveway.  Property Owner

  • "Lovely cottage."

    Clean and very pretty. Fantastic location with playground virtually next door. Perfect for exploring so many wonderful places within 30 minute drive but also only 5-10 mins drive from porthleven, praa sands and the coastal path. Drive is a bit tricky so recommend bringing a car rather than VW van if you can but it was do-able and you can always leave van on the road nearby. Stunning wheal prosper nearby - an old disused Cornish mine overlooking rinsey cove - perfect for a picnic or an inspiring morning run.

  • "Quite a small cottage but spotlessly clean and comfortable."

    Away from all the crowds but less than a half hour drive from the beautiful St Ives. A welcome pack awaited us which was very much appreciated after a long drive to get there. The drive was a little difficult to nagivate at first as it’s very tight and quite dark at night but we soon got used to it. Overall a lovely little cottage which we would highly recommend and would love to return to .

  • "An excellent week in this rather compact but extremely functional cottage."

    Perry was very welcoming and we had a very comfortable stay. We played golf at both Mullion and Pra Sands and we can recommend both. The coastal walks are of course beautiful and we were lucky to have mostly lovely sunny weather. On the day it was foggy and damp we went to the National Maritime Museum in Falmouth having pre booked an entry time. It is absolutely wonderful and well worth visiting. A dishwasher would have been nice ( rather than a washing machine for just a week) but understand due to lack of space.

    Location was good for getting to beaches by car with young kids and days out . Good size cottage in hidden spot, secure garden for children. Helston a short drive for supermarket etc . Local beach at Rinsey cove well worth a visit, steep path - walk there as car park small. It was great to arrange all of the booking from my phone, all went to plan . A nice cottage for small family or couples. Recommended .

  • "Honeysuckle Cottage is comfortable, clean and warm."

    The cottage is well equipped and there is a well-kept private garden if you wish to relax outside. Access is down a short, narrow rough track, but there is ample room to park. The owners, who live nearby, are friendly and helpful. Honeysuckle Cottage is in an excellent position for exploring the far southwestern end of Cornwall including the Lizard headland, St. Michaels Mount, Porthleven, the Penrose Estate, Trengwainton Gardens, Godolphin House, the Tin Coast and many other places of interest. Evening stroll at Risley Head and Prussia Cove are highly recommended . Don't bother with tacky commercialised tourist trap of Lands End unless you really have to; Cape Cornwall and Lizard Point offers a much better experiences. We weren't very keen on the 'chips-with-everything' food in the local pub, but there are plenty of good restaurants and pubs in Porthleven, and there's a good local supermarket by the car park that stocks a lot of locally produced food.
