  • "Just returned from a fabulous stay in this cosy and well equipped cottage."

    It is gorgeous with original quaint features and all the mod cons. The location is perfect for visiting St Ives, Mousehole the Lizard etc and there are plenty of beautiful walks on the South West coastal path, taking in the stunning coves and beaches. Rinsey beach is within walking distance and the others are a short drive. The Lion and Lamb pub is also within walking distance and the highly recommended Victoria Inn, a short drive away. The only disappointment was having to leave!

  • "Only two things, Bed Mattress need replacing quite uncomfortable, and Note getting your car on the Driveway not straight forward."

  • "Lovely cosy cottage, very close to Porthleven."

    Really enjoyed our stay and loved the scones with clotted cream and treats for the dogs. The only negative is that the mattress on the single bed is very thin so you can feel the springs when laying down which made for an uncomfortable nights sleep for my son. He ended up having to sleep on top of the duvet to make it more bearable. Everything else was perfect.

  • "Tivoli Cottage."

    was very comfortable , clean and well equipped. The only slight complaint was the bed was too soft for us, but that is very much a personnel thing. Unfortunately the weather was awful but we won't blame you for that. We had a very enjoyable week and would certainly return to that part of Cornwall.

  • "Beautiful, cosy, comfortable cottage."

    The kitchen was very well equipped. The parking could be slightly awkward if you had a very large vehicle but other than that, no complaints. The outdoor space was very good, a lovely country cottage garden that had been well maintained by the owner, our dogs wandered around in peace and quiet, which for us was great as we have a very timid greyhound. The area is ideally located for exploring the tip of Cornwall and you could be in most places of interested in no time. Some lovely little coves to explore & plenty of places to eat. Would definitely recommend this cottage

  • "Very thoughtful welcome pack."

    Milk, cream tea and treats for the dog. Not sure if mentioned in listing, doors very low, did bang my head a few times (kept forgetting). Good points to mention are bed very comfortable indeed, wifi excellent (much better than the average holiday let). Kitchen excellent and modern. (Temperature knob on oven not functioning at time of visit - sure this will be fixed) Plenty character in garden. Location is wonderful, quiet, central for lots of places to visit. Parking bit tricky if like us you have a large car. Overall had great stay, thanks.

  • "The cottage was a welcoming 'home from home' to come back to each evening after touring the local area and beyond."

    Scenery was spectacular, the people friendly and the whole experience was just so relaxing. Highly recommended.

  • "We knew it was a cottage but at 6ft @ 6ft2" we were constantly walking around stooped, or banging our heads on doorways."

    The only wardrobe was supposedly a double but only half was accessible due to it being blocked by a bedside table. The wall heater in the lounge didn't work and it wasn't cold enough to lite the log burner. The sink in the bathroom was tiny, obviously designer but couldn't even clean our teeth without headbutting the mirror above, let alone wash (the sink being approx 8" from front to back. Whenever you tried to drive in or out of the parking area a large dog, appeared making maneuverability difficult (presumably owned by the neighboring property and allowed to roam free). The gardens were not as photographed, uncared for and overgrown, the greenhouse glass was completely broken and the glass left on the base. A note had been left regarding the damage in a recent storm but it was still in the same condition after a week of us being there. There were no cushions for the back garden furniture, which also had mold on it, the washing line was broken and left coiled up. On the plus side the cream teas and dog treats were a welcome touch, the dvd, cd and book collection was extensive and varied (unfortunately we didn't choose this holiday to watch tv).

    Tivoli is a 200 years old stone miners cottage built to the living requirements of the time. The doorway from the front room into the kitchen is low and it is possible to bang your head but this is a part of the structure and the nature of the cottage . All the other doorways are of a modern height. The heater to the front room does work - it had been switched off. The bedroom is small and space is restricted - iit is possible to push clothes hangers along the rail. The shower room sink is of a design that fits the space - next to it is a large, step in shower for bathing. The gardens are mainly given over to growing wild flowers - at this time of year they are beginning to seed so are left. They will be trimmed before Winter. This information is in the Visitors Information. I am unable to comment on the dog - the Animal Welfare Office of the Council can be reached on 03001234212. The external seating occasionally forms small clumps of lichen - this is because we are on the coast. The cushions have been removed on advice as a consequence of Covid 19. Property Owner

  • "This beautiful cottage is in such a peaceful location ."

    The cottage is so well equipped and tastefully decorated and furnished to a very high standard . The location is so perfect for walks from cottage or short drives out. We found beautiful secluded coves and beaches close by if you don't mind the narrow lanes and fairly steep climbs to beaches you will find tranquility on your doorstep. Great having dog secure garden and a welcoming cream tea . Too many beautiful places we visited to list but def walk to Rinsey and Porthleven . If you want the best ever beach get up early by 9 am and park in free car park at Prussia Cove it fills quick even with tide high u can swim off rocks its wonderful and not busy . Thank you for an amazing week

  • "Great little cottage in an excellent location."

    Be mindful of the cottage feel and the low doorways with all effort made by the owners to make the stay pleasant and inviting. The only potential concern for future visitors may be the access to the parking area is down quite a narrow track with a small, slightly tricky turning area. With this in mind the cottage would probably not suit anyone travelling in an SUV. A small to medium sized family car is absolutely fine. Although we were only at the cottage for two nights, an extremely enjoyable time with local coastal walks and the towns of Porthleven and St Ives within easy reach.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry if you found the access difficult, the vast majority of our guests do not see this as an issue and are able to access in any vehicle. The turning head at the end of the lane is made up of wide access into neighbouring properties and all the residents are perfectly happy that we all use the space. As a consequence turning is not complicated. The owner have had regular deliveries by sizeable vans and trucks (during the renovation work, for example) and the refuse lorry visits every week. There has never in the 3 years we have been at Tivoli Cottage been a problem with turning. We hope this information puts future guests minds at rest but should you have any further questions please contact the office and we will speak with the owner. Property Owner
