  • "Just spent a week at Little Westwards from 8th -15th."

    We were 2 couples and a 1 dog. We were all extremely please with the accomodation from the welcome beer, wine and biscuits to the lovely cotton bedding. The location is perfect with any sights within a short distance. We also found some lovely walks direct from the apartment. We would have no hesitation in recommending Little Westwards and will certainly return.

  • "Guests are welcomed with a generous welcome hamper, including treats for any pets that are in tow."

    Little Westwards is in a perfect location fo exploring the many highlights of the area on the North and South coast and The Lizard. It feels considerably more relaxing when the day trips are close to base. There are many walking paths in the area and the coast path very close. We want to thank the hosts for their generosity and being so very helpful and welcoming.

  • "This is a pleasant 'cottage' in a good situation."

    The owners, who are on-site, left fresh flowers and a generous welcome package which we appreciated. While the accommodation as a whole was spacious and generally comfortable we found the main bed quite hard (as reported by a previous guest) and the heating (three completely different and individually set electric radiators plus two towel rails) a bit of a nuisance to get right during warm days and chilly mornings and evenings. It was also unfortunate that there were problems with the TV when we first arrived and although the owners were prompt to try to rectify that we found the process for finding and selecting programmes a bit long winded compared with just turning on and entering a channel number. China, cookware and kitchen tools were adequate but all the glasses were large, a set of small tumblers would be a good addition. These weren't big problems but just a bit irritating.

  • "Once you enter this accommodation it becomes apparent how homely it is."

    The care and attention given is outstanding. The welcome pack is very helpful along with the beautiful flowers placed around the accommodation is a lovely touch. It is very well equipped for your every day needs. All correspondence with Mel and Claire was very helpful and comforting especially as we were traveling a distance. They were on hand if you needed help or further advice on the area for places to visit and eat out. Our stay between 11th -18th September 2020 was a very relaxing experience, a bonus as the weather was superb. We would highly recommend Little Westwards as a base for your holiday.

    We had a dog and the closed courtyard was just what we needed, Goldsithney is in an excellent area and in a lovely village with two pubs. The only downside was the beds were a little hard for my liking but the Holliday was still brilliant.

The bed in the main bedroom was the most comfortable I have ever slept in. Melanie the owner was very welcoming and was always on hand for advice on where to visit and any other information you might need.

    We requested a cot for our 3 month old and Melanie sent a picture to make sure it was okay. The information we received with directions and instructions was so helpful and very welcomed after a long drive. There was ample space for parking, very secure and also just a lovely place to stay. There were welcome goodies for us and also the dog. Milk was put in the fridge so that we could have a cup of tea. This was our first family holiday with our little boy and it didn’t disappoint not only was the place lovely but it was extremely close to all attractions and walking distance to a lovely pub the trevelyn which was exceptional following a recommendation from Melanie. She was able to tell us where to eat where to visit and also offered to help with anything we needed. Melanie, Mel and Lugo were fab and very friendly and I cannot wait to stay again. Can not recommend little westwards enough. Above and beyond well worth a stay. Xx

  • "Owners, Melanie and family were once again very welcoming."

    (It was our second stay with them.) They accommodated my elderly mother (92) by putting in a high-backed firm chair for her (as the main sofa is soft and squishy for relaxing in). Lots of lovely welcome gifts for us and dog. Very helpful with advice about area. I could see where they had made improvements from a few moths ago, e.g. new oven, radiator, door lock, dog bed and even ordered a coffee maker after I enquired if there was one there. Nothing is too much trouble for them and they are keen to do their best to make you comfortable and have a great time. Cottage is well appointed and garden is secure for your dog. Comprehensive information pack in cottage on places to visit and eat at, walks, and manuals for equipment, e.g. new radiator. Only did small smile for comfort as my husband and I had a little back ache in the regular double bed, but that's probably just us! My mum was very comfortable in the big bed. Otherwise, very comfortable in the cottage, with everything you need. My husband liked the little touches like Arran Aromatics hand soap and moisturiser in the bathrooms. Great base for local area, super quiet village with local walks and lots of places nearby to visit, e.g. gardens, walks, restaurants. So many places are dog-friendly too, including Seal Sanctuary at Gweek. We can't wait to come back again!

  • "We absolutely loved Little Westwards."

    It was extremely clean and very homely. It was extremely well equipped and the spec was very high. The beds were so comfortable - to the extent that my daughter made me ask the owner where we could buy the mattresses from!!! The location itself was very quiet, could even hear the owls hooting. It was a very short drive from Marazion and St. Michael's Mount, and easily within reach were Penzance, St Ives, Falmouth and Lands End (amongst others). Would highly recommend this place to anyone. It's also on a single level so would be ideal for anyone who has issues climbing stairs. Also very dog friendly, to the degree that they left dog treats and dog bowls and bed for use. They also left milk, wine and biscuits for when we arrived. Loved it.

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.
