  • "We truly had an amazing time at Halzephron House."

    Lucy is a great host there were lovely thoughtful touches on our arrival. The cottage is relaxed and cosy, we looked forward to returning to sit be the fire in the evening. The settling is truly breathtaking and will leave that element as a surprise. The cottage is excellenty locates too for walks and nearby cosy pub. Have recommended to others already which might be counter productive in us booking again. Thanks again for a fabulous stay

  • "The cottage was just as seen - so just right."

    Lucy and Roger were really helpful - and generous with lovely hand wash etc (and a bottle of prosecco in the fridge). It is in a wonderful location and great to have such easy parking (we normally take a trailer with kayaks.)

  • "The cottage at Halzephron is a peaceful retreat towards the end of a no through road leading down to the sea."

    Comfortable and stylish, surrounded by wild flower meadows, sea and sky. The beach is a 5 minute walk along the coast path from the garden, the excellent Halzephron Inn is the same 5 minute walk away. Excellent coastal walks from the door, great restauarants all around at Porthleven and Falmouth. Nothing much could beat the view of the sea from the cottage; the dog loved it and so did we.

  • "Halzephone Cottage has been everything promised and more."

    In a beautiful spot with wonderful views and excellent access to the coastal paths. We brought our dog with us and, with plenty of beaches allowing dogs (the closest 5 minutes walk away) she has been able to enjoy everything with us. The cottage itself is very spacious. As it was a little wet and chilly when we first arrived we lit the log fire and immediately felt that we were in a wonderful place. Halzephron Cottage is well appointed and very cosy on cold days whilst being bright and airy on warmer days. The views are amazing. We would strongly recommend this cottage if you are looking for a quiet and relaxing time with easy access to all that Cornwall has to offer. We have already booked for next year.
