  • "We all loved this holiday house."

    The cream tea left for us was delicious and very much appreciated and there was everything we needed there, including tea and coffee, hand soap, tea towels etc. We had a lovely comfortable weeks stay, it's a really lovely light and airy house. We didn't want to leave!

  • "The Lizard is a really great spot to holiday and has a great vibe."

    There are plenty of things to do- lots of shops for delicious ice cream, places for food and drink (for a real treat head to Ann’s pasties- WOW!) or to see the local sights, check out the most southerly point in the UK, head to Kynance Cove, etc. The house itself was really great, very much a home from home. It accommodated 4 adults and 2 children plus a little dog perfectly for a week! Well equipped, most things have been thought of from washing up liquid, to dishwasher tablets, to toilet rolls and even some washing capsules for clothes. I have stayed in properties where nothing but 2 tea towels were provided! There was also a cream tea in the fridge on our arrival. The beds were comfortable, the bedding nice. Aside from the shower on the top floor being a bit temperamental with its temperature and perhaps being a bit smaller than we’re used to (personal preference) the view from the doors more than makes up for it. The listing and the photos are accurate. A couple of small points- there are some parts of the sofa that are quite worn but it’s generally comfortable and sat 4 adults easily. The windowsills in the living room (behind the sofa) and in the twin room were dusty, not a big deal. We had to wash some of the kitchen items before using them, probably as a result of a previously overstuffed dishwasher. All in all, nothing that would stop us returning, just a bit of balanced feedback as these were so minor in what was frankly a superb holiday! Thank you so much

    Thank you for your comments - it’s always good to get helpful feedback. Glad you enjoyed your holiday at the Lizard. Property Owner

    A lovely cream tea was in the fridge when we arrived and some milk. Unfortunately we left midweek due to family illness but would love to return.

    So sorry to hear you had to cut your stay short but thank you so much for your lovely feedback. Property Owner

  • "Such a long way to get there but well worth the effort."

    Many things to do on The Lizard itself without using the car for a week. Comfortable, modern, home from home, ideally situated almost in the centre of the village. We have returned many times and hope to do so again. Unfortunately we had to leave a few days early due to a family funeral, consequently we didn't get the "how to leave the property" message until we had left.. hopefully we got most of it right!

    Thank you so much for staying with us again. Sorry to hear about your family funeral and absolutely no problem with departure procedures. Jane Property Owner

    The beds were comfortable , the kitchen was well equipped and the whole stay was enjoyable. The top shower was perfectly acceptable - just make sure no one else is using any water - definitely not a problem. I would definitely book here again, I've stayed in many cottages on The Lizard and this was one of the best .

  • "The house was in a great location for local amenities and was equipped well."

    Top floor bedroom was a great size and good views but the shower was on the small size being a curved corner cubicle and a struggle with broad shoulders. Also you could not shower if water was being used elsewhere in the house. This could be easily resolved by installing a small water pump. The bed was far to low to the ground in the top bedroom and could easily be moved and raised to make the best of the views. Great holiday

    Henry’s Croft ticks all of the boxes and is perfectly located for us. We had a wonderful week and didn’t want for anything during our stay. Having stayed here last year, we knew what to expect and we were not disappointed. This is a gem of a place and we would definitely book again. Thank you for having us!

    Thank you for the great review. So lovely that you enjoyed your stay again at Henryscroft. We agree, the Lizard has some kind of magic! Property Owner

    Regarding the 2 most regular complaints on reviews: Wardrobe top bedroom. It is an attic room with sloped ceiling, of course you had to use a half size. My wife put her dresses in the 1st floor full wardrobe. Simple! Low water pressure for top floor shower. Talk about 1st world problems! Time your showers and enjoy your holiday. We loved it, thank you.

  • "This was a last minute booking and although larger than what we required we were delighted with the property."

    It had everything we needed and for a larger group/family there was plenty of space and facilities. It is ideally situated for visiting the Lizard's many beaches/coves and within walking distance of the village itself. The welcome pack was really appreciated and the scones were lovely. We wouldn't hesitate returning to this property and would recommend to family/friends.

  • "We arrived at Henry's Croft which we found to be clean warm and spacious."

    This property had every thing we required, it is very well equipped. The super markets are on the main road to the Lizard, around 15 minuets from Henry's Croft, Tesco, Sainsburys and Lidl. (Lidl is not on the main road to the Lizard, but is only 0.9 of a mile away on Penzance Road). We had some delicious fish and chips and drinks at The Top House Inn which was warm and welcoming, dogs are also allowed. The Smugglers Fish and Chip shop was also very good as is Anne's Pasties, all less than a 5 minuet walk and I'm a slow walker. A fantastic location for coastal walks spectacular scenery, We saw female sparrow hawks, seals and rabbits. We arrived to milk biscuit's and fresh flowers. I would defiantly recommend this lovely property. We all had a wonderful stay and wanted for nothing.

    We throughly enjoyed our week here, luckily we had a mini heatwave during our stay! Very spacious holiday home and very well equipped with everything you need. In a great, quiet location within a short walk from shops and places to eat. The Regent Cafe does great value food, with friendly staff and is also dog friendly inside and out. Walking distance to Lizard point and lighthouse. Lovely coastal path walks with fantastic views. The house was lovely and clean and the welcome treats were very much appreciated. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a quiet, relaxed holiday with the added bonus of being able to take your dog. Would definitely book again.

  • "Excellent Cottage and location."

    One issue is the very small Shower and lack of water pressure in the top floor bedroom en-suite.

    Reviewed by Fay4.7Jun 2021

  • "Whilst the furniture was both comfortable and practical and the house was clean and well presented, we were disappointed with the 2nd floor bedroom and bathroom."

    There was no mention of the lack of water pressure which rendered the bathroom water supply useless if water was being used elsewhere in the house ie the washing machine or the other bathroom facilities were being used by other people. Several times there was no water coming out of the taps and the shower was a waste of time there was just a slow trickle from it , it also went from freezing to scalding when it did work, and the cubicle was so small you couldn't turn or bend down to wash properly. The bedroom wardrobe was too small as it is a half height so couldn't hang dresses in it or clothing any longer that a shirt. I don't consider this to be satisfactory and would advise the owners to look at getting a better water supply maybe a header tank in the loft space, and some sort of hanging rail. The rest of the house was great and well equipped .
