  • "The cottage smelt of damp downstairs and the mattresses were very uncomfortable."

    The front door doesn't fit so you have to bang it shut and push hard to open, I wasn't sure if the handle was going to break. The pub in the village only serves alcohol and not food.

    Thank you for your feedback and bringing this to our attention. We are sorry you found some issues at the property, but can now confirm that the damp smell you mentioned was caused by some damp logs left in the fireplace that have since been removed. In addition to this the mattresses have all been replaced and all of the doors have been fixed. On a final note, there are two lovely places that serve food in the area, Trengilly Wartha Inn, which is only a 20 min walk away and the Ferry Boat Inn at Helford Passage which is 10 minutes by car.

  • "We had a very enjoyable week at Jackdaw Cottage, a perfect location for exploring the south west of Cornwall."

    The cottage had ever thing provided, we did not want for anything. We cannot fault any part of our stay.

  • "We had a lovely week in Jackdaw cottage, really loved the location in the Constantine as it was close enough to the coast with lovely beaches around Helford passage and the Lizard peninsula not to far away."

    I'm not sure that the pub in Constantine does food but the Trengilly Wartha Inn is only a 20 min walk away and does nice food and we also enjoyed the Ferry Boat Inn at Helford Passage about a 10 min drive. The cottage itself is nicely presented and well equipment although the quality of the finish is average and it did seem like it had been furnished and equipped as cheaply as possible. One gripe was the dishwasher! Despite being in a full size kitchen cupboard there is only a mini dishwasher installed which barely fits anything in it and is very awkward to stack! They should really consider replacing this with a full size dishwasher as no one wants to be washing up on holiday! The single bedroom does not have a TV as stated in the listing.

    Thank you for taking the time to complete your feedback. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay at Jackdaw Cottage, with lots of lovely beaches and places to eat nearby. We have arranged for a member of our team to visit the property to check the points you have raised and we hope to welcome you back to Cornwall in the future. Property Owner

  • "Cottage was clean, well equipped and also well presented and as listed."

    only slight downside/frustration was the constant smell and feeling of it being damp throughout the stay.

The property

Packed with rustic charm and Cornish tradition, Jackdaw Cottage is a superb stone built cottage, settled within the picturesque village of Constantine, Cornwall.

Offering ideal accommodation for a family or friends, it makes the perfect base for exploring both the beautiful coast and countryside of Cornwall.

Step inside to exposed granite walls and beams throughout the property, a log fire in the fireplace and flag floors.

Enjoy unwinding in the sitting room in front of the fire, where you can relax with a good book or an evening of film from the extensive movie library.

In the kitchen you will be greeted by a good range of appliances to assist you in all of your culinary needs with a useful washing machine, and a dining space where you can gather together to enjoy your home-cooked meals or chat about your day.

On the first floor you will find three welcoming bedrooms, choose from two doubles or a single room, all sharing a gleaming bathroom, offering the ideal layout for a family or friends to rest between their adventures.

At the rear of the property is an enclosed lawned garden with furniture and a charcoal barbecue, so you can enjoy a spot of alfresco dining in the summer months.

Positioned within the village of Constantine, you will find numerous walking routes from your doorstep.

Head to Scott's Quay, an inlet of the Helford River, enjoy a pub lunch at Trengilly Wartha, one of several good pubs in the area or wander through bluebell woods nearby.

For strolls amongst greenery, head to Trebah Garden or Penjerrick Garden nearby; due to the region's gentle climate this area allows gardens to thrive, ideal for exploring.

Spend a day on the coast at Falmouth where you can indulge in delicious local produce and seafood straight off the boat in its impressive harbour.

You'll find numerous places to eat here as well as many good family friendly attractions explore such as Pendennis Castle or you could even take a trip to pretty St Mawes on the ferry.The nearby areas are also home to the National Seal Sanctuary at Gweek, for the animal lovers of the group, or for a spot of history while you are in the area, visit the cathedral city of Truro, hosting luscious sandy beaches at Gyllyngvase and Swanpool and many pretty harbour villages, as well as a magnificent cathedral.

With so much to see and do, Jackdaw Cottage makes a delightful base for a memorable getaway in Cornwall.

About the location


Falmouth 9 miles; Truro 14 miles.

A charmingly picturesque country village with a few shops, a pub and a lovely church, set among green rolling meadows and wooded valleys leading down to the beautiful Helford river, just 3 miles away. Famous for its mild climate, this quieter part of Cornwall has the outstanding gardens of Trebah, Penjerrick, Glendurgan and Carwinion all within 4 miles. For nature lovers and those who enjoy boats, the misty reaches of the Helford river meander upstream to Gweek, where the world renowned Seal Sanctuary looks after the region’s many abandoned and injured seals. Falmouth, with its narrow streets, natural harbour and National Maritime Museum is just 20 minutes by car, while Flambards theme park (8 miles) and Argal Lake with its water sports attractions make great days out. The nearby beautiful Lizard Peninsula, with its outstanding beaches and quaint fishing villages dotting the rocky coastline, has the benefit of outstanding scenery, tranquillity and some great walks.
