  • "Hi Whilst the venue is in a great location, the description is a little miss leading."

    The "Cottage" is not a Cottage it is an adjoining annex with an internal connecting door: The owners who live in Mithain Cottage are charming and helpful. However, on arrival, they describe the “cottage” as a studio. It is neither Cottage nor Studio it an Annex. The bedroom is located downstairs and is very tight for space, indeed one of us ended up sleeping on the sofa bed upstairs in the living room most nights as the bed is a small double to say the least, although I’m not the smallest of people. Overall, the venue was Ok for week, but it would have been claustrophobic in the tight space for more than a week. The other issue was roadside parking, it is against other holidays / lived in properties and we were asked to park in the pub car park 50 meters away no issues here as the Miners pub is great. Would I stay here again , for me it’s a no, we were expecting a Cottage, with a garden etc, not an two down -one up annex.

    Thank you for your feedback. I have reviewed the description on the Cornish Cottage Holidays website and, in fairness, I do not believe we have been misleading and all the issues you have commented on were well described in the existing property information. The first paragraph describing the property is very clear: 'The studio-style extension to the owners' own residence, a pretty stone cottage, features reversed accommodation offering seclusion and comfort' This is exactly what it is. :) Again, the size of the bed is overtly described as a double (4'6) bed - we would not wish to mislead in any way and I think it is important to provide clear information in order to manage expectations. The bedroom is angled and a larger bed cannot be accommodated - otherwise, it would have been. All our guests are welcome to park directly across the road when there is space...but as the property is on a corner leading into the village, and there can be many cars looking for parking nearby, we have an arrangement whereby our guests may park more safely in the pub car park without any need to use the pub (although most do as it is a lovely pub with great food!). I also repeat this information in my welcome email to our guests. There is a small private patio area (also accurately described) that basks in the afternoon sun complete with a pretty table and chairs. I am sorry that Mithian Cottage Studio was not exactly to your liking but it may be that you did not read the details carefully enough. I do hope you enjoyed your holiday nonetheless. Property Owner

  • "Our stay at Mithian Cottage was fantastic."

    The owners were very friendly and helpful. They even invited us to join the village celebrations.

  • "The studio is small but has everything needed for a holiday, plenty of crockery, cutlery and equipment."

    The location is great, and the village pub has the best staff we’ve ever met, plus the food and atmosphere are really good. The bed is a standard double, about which we were aware, and comfortable. However, the sofa in the sitting area is dreadfully uncomfortable. It’s a sofa bed and the seat and back cushions move so that we had to rearrange them all on a number of occasions. A firm, two seater sofa would be a great idea. Minor jobs required include both kitchen and bathroom taps which are loose, as is the toilet seat. The very pleasant owners told the to let them know if anything needed to be done, but we didn’t feel these were sufficiently problematic to interfere with our holiday.

  • "The studio cottage is set on the edge of the tiny hamlet of Mithian."

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay but felt the accommodation was a little tired and in need of some TLC, my husband found the settee a little uncomfortable too. Having said that it is in a lovely location and in easy reach of the many fabulous beaches and coastal walks and all the attractions the area has to offer. The village pub is very popular and serves good pub grub at sensible prices. The owners who live next door and are very welcoming and communication was good throughout.

    Should you encounter any problems as we did, we couldn’t get the heating to come on as we were not familiar with the system, Rebecca is on hand to rectify straight away. Would definitely recommend

  • "This is a small but well equipped studio flat in z good location for exploring all Cornwall has to offer."

    The only real downside was the bed as it is a small double and this is not noted and my husband is 6ft 5 so posed a bit of an issue but also the bed was very soft so I got little sleep and spent much of the night on the sofa. The listing states a shop is in the village but this was not open at all so if you needed supplies you had to drive. The pub was excellent and provided lovely food and drinks. All in all we had a great stay but would not return due to bed situation and for no other reason.

  • "The studio was in a lovely location with generally easy access for most places provided you are not phased by the narrow roads."

    Whilst the owners were welcoming, the accommodation and facilities within were sadly tired and in need of some TLC. The studio is very compact which we expected however it was not particularly clean and attention to detail throughout was lacking. The shower door was broken and the freezer compartment in the fridge was sealed with a message that it could not be used, information available at the cottage for days out etc was dated. Unfortunately it did not live up to our expectations or the standards we have experienced in other cottages we have booked previously at a similar price.
