  • "Dean and his family are amazing friendly people great hosts for sure."

    The good: it's in a great quiet location which is always a bonus. The wood burner is very nice especially on a cold night. The internet is super fast and TV is great including netflix etc. the pool table was enjoyed by me every day. Nice kitchen including everything you need. The bad: unfortunately there where some stuff we didn't like the bed is very small for two people and is to soft for me and my wife we suffered from bad backs because of this. The shower was very nice but overflows all the time whilst dean did kindly explain to us why this happens it still made us feel like we had to rush and not enjoy the shower. The sofa was to low so no neck support. The parking is a little awkward because it's on a main road leading into mullion you have to reverse park and because the owner owns a car to your only left with a small space to park into. Even though we had some negative points to make all round we really did enjoy our stay thank you to Dean and his family for being great hosts

    You’re not far from most of the local attractions, lizard and mullion coves being the closest. Can see us going back to see Dean and Bruce again in the future. Thanks again Dean and Bruce.

    We loved the pool table in a wet February week! We also loved the gentle tap on the door by Bruce when he wanted to play.

  • "The Blue Oyster is a very comfortable spacious property for two people situated on the outskirts of Mullion on the Lizard in Cornwall."

    It has excellent facilities and a pool table! It has electric panel heaters which I found more than adequate in January! There is also a log burning fire should you wish to be warm and cosy. Mullion is ideally situated for exploring the Lizard. Mullion village boasts two good pubs, two supermarkets, great fish and chip shop with restaurant. There are two beautiful hotels on the coast within walking distance and the coastline is both beautiful and dramatic. The owner Dean is very friendly and helpful and nothing is too much trouble. This was my second stay in the Blue Oyster and I look forward to returning in the future. Highly recommended.

  • "We had a great stay, despite it being December the weather was actually very kind to us in terms of temperature compared to the rest of the UK!"

    Blue Oyster was easy to find with good parking outside and as Dean said; if you reverse into the space it works well. The bed was very comfortable and we both slept well despite it not being kingsize that were used to. The shower was excellent. The cottage became very snug once at temperature. The heating was easy to control as you could set the thermostats for daytime and nighttime-similarly for the bedroom. Also the wood burner was an extra luxury which we enjoyed in the evenings. Useful having the Co-op in Mullion. We had a lovely Sunday roast at the Old Inn. Well located to explore and plenty of walks in the Lizard, Helston and Marazion areas. Even the Lost Gardens of Heligan were a delight. I can’t think of a negative about our stay- we would thoroughly recommend!

    A lovely garden to relax in, and a very comfortable cottage. The only small thing that would have been useful was a little chopping board. Salad and red onions, carrots & peppers would stain the lovely bread board, and we eat a lot of raw veg with lunches or snacks.

    Lovely comfortable accommodation. I would say to Dean that the shower tray drainage wasn’t great and was not draining properly, and there was dreadful sewage smell coming from the drainage. Also the owner needs to make it clear on the description what are included in the starter pack. But lovely stay.

    Convenient to all the beaches on the Lizard. Village shop 10 minutes walk. Poldhu beach about half hour walk - but go along the coast path from mullion to Poldhu as road very busy and narrow. Great beach cafe at Poldhu. As ever, Kynace Cove was amazing, though you have to be careful of the strong currents there and the beach cafe again excellent. Went to Wavecrest Cafe at Lizard point and had great fish n chips/Pizza and watched storm. Listened to the foghorns. Beautiful. Jumanjy Thai resturant very good my Mossiman curry was delicious and good size portions, price reasonable. Did coast path from Lizard point to Mullion then onto Gunwalloe cove and very good views. Great cream tea in Mullion harbour too, recovering from the walk. Our host was very pleasent and accommodating and even dropped us at Lizard point pre walk to save us having to go back. Thank you

A lovely touch was the wine, beer and biscuits that were waiting for us when we arrived. There were many DVDs to amuse as well as Netflix and Sky. I can’t advocate Blue Oyster Cottage enough.

  • "Had a great holiday last week down on the Lizard peninsula staying at Blue Oyster cottage, Mullion Cove."

    Dean the owner made us feel most welcome and although we were left alone to get on with things he was always available should we of needed anything. The accomodation was spacious & comfortable and was an excellent bolt hole for our trips out to explore the South West of Cornwall. The owners two friendly boarder collies made the stay somewhat more entertaining due to their daily antics. Highly recommend a stay at Blue Oyster. Ann & Adrian Hampshire

    The cottage itself was spotless and had everything you need for that break away. Is definitely on our places to stay at again when the opportunity arises.

  • "Perfect cottage for great holiday!"

    Will be going back ' We had a fantastic break in the Blue Oyster Cottage. It was perfectly equipped for the two of us and a great location just a short walk into Mullion. The log burner was particularly helpful especially when the weather was against us, the cottage was a cosy escape. It was central to many attractions on the lizard, we ventured around the coves and villages and found it was a perfect base for our holiday. The couple who owned the cottage were very welcoming and helpful whilst allowing us to enjoy our holiday. We would definitely look at going back and staying at Blue Oyster again and look forward to doing so

  • "This property is great for couples, and in an ideal location to explore the area."

    It is beautifully decorated and furnished and spotlessly clean.There are a couple of things I wish I had been aware of before booking. Even though the property is of a good size the bedroom is too small to accommodate a Wardrobe. The water tank does not hold enough hot water for 2 consecutive showers a wait of 20 minutes between each is needed to ensure enough hot water. The property is on a busy road but once inside you are not aware of the traffic. The owner welcomed us on arrival and we quckly settled in and had a lovely holiday.

    Mullion village, with good local services was just a short walk/drive away, and within very easy reach was a very nice pottery shop, and a chocolate factory - both perfect for gifts etc. This was a superb location and an ideal base for exploring West Cornwall.

Parking directly outside the cottage the moment you enter you will be taken by the welcoming spacious feel of the open plan living area with kitchen, sitting area and dining area.

A fascinating collection of cult photographs, many signed and collected by the owner over 35 years adorn the walls and make most interesting viewing whilst enjoying a game of pool.
