  • "The Woolly Welcome cottage itself was wonderful."

    The massive conservatory is a lovely place to relax, and there's a dining table in it too, so you can eat there if you want to. All the animals lend the place real character, and the two sheep are like no sheep I've ever seen before. They're big and chunky, and very friendly. They come up to you by the fence, and love to have their heads, ears and faces tickled, like big dogs or cats! The location of the cottage is brilliant. Just a few miles from Penzance, and Falmouth isn't much further. There are many lovely little villages, both inland and on the coast.

  • "The property was beautiful and more than exceeded our expectations."

    The hosts were close by and we’re very helpful and friendly. We would certainly book again.

  • "The photos did not do justice to this lovely holiday home."

    The house has everything you could want, being clean, tidy and spacious, but the real star of the show was the garden. We all enjoyed hours of relaxing fun there, which was certainly helped by the excellent weather. We couldn’t have asked for more. The hosts were friendly and respectful of our privacy and the cream tea on arrival was greatly appreciated. Goldsithney is a lovely wee village, with two cracking pubs (good food and beer in both) and a decent play park for the kids. Nearby Marazion and Penzance have much to offer, but there are numerous excellent beaches nearby if that’s your thing. We hope to come back some day soon!

  • "We had a very comfortable stay in this cottage."

    Mel and Stuart the owners who, live on site were friendly but also respected our privacy. (They have the balance just right) I would be very happy to recommend this place to both families with young children or Adults without children. The cottage is situated perfectly for exploring the whole area.

The property

Woolly Welcome is a beautiful cottage, part of a small holding, in the Cornish country village of Goldsithney.

On the land there are two emus, horses, dogs and a cat, along with a wonderful landscaped garden.

Inside the retreat you will discover a farmhouse kitchen with a dining table for four people, and a collection of pictures and frames which grace the walls.

Beyond the corridor, there is a lovely light and airy conservatory drawing in natural views, covered in an almost tropical effect, with accessories scattered around.

The bathroom boasts a quirky set-up, featuring a shower, and a bath, so you can get ready in the way that suits you morning through to evening.

Choose from two charmingly presented bedrooms, the first showcases twin beds, whilst the second room is a delightful double, both with ample storage.

Lastly the lounge is neat and comfortable, home to comfy sofas, collectables, and a series of books that you can enjoy reading in your downtime.

From here, you can also access the heart-warming patio area, and enclosed lawned garden, bordered by a variety of flowers, with a barbecue and gazebo, perfect for those warm sunny nights.

Also you can enjoy the view of the 5 alpacas at the property.

Goldsithney is set back from the coast, yet lying close to all the main attractions, if you can tear yourself away from the cottage, there are seaside towns, villages and sandy beaches all within easy driving distance.

A trip to Marazion is just a short journey away, where St Michael’s Mount is a prominent feature, or maybe explore the art galleries of St Ives with its sandy beaches and boat trips.

The white sands of Sennen Cove are awash with surfers, swimmers and sun worshippers in the summer months and quiet and serene during those winter breaks.

Walkers, cyclists and horse riders will love this location with its rugged landscape and wonderful scenery.

A memorable holiday destination away from the demands of modern living, perfect for spending quality time with your loved ones.

About the location


Marazion 1.5 miles; Penzance 4 miles; Helston 11 miles.

A typically Cornish country village with picturesque houses, shops and village pubs, Goldsithney is set back from the coast, thus escaping the main tourist rush, yet lying close to all the main attractions. Dominating the area and just 2 miles away is the off shore island castle of St Michael's Mount - reaching it via the causeway when the tide is out is a must. Right on the doorstep there are fabulous beaches, the coastal path (winding its way over the cliff tops) and plenty of sailing and fishing. Visit Penzance, with its slightly bohemian air, the cliff-top theatre at Minack or the stunningly beautiful fishing villages of Marazion and Mousehole - a superb base for exploring beautiful Cornwall.
