  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Kober House."

    Nice touches such as fresh flowers and the “Welcome Package. We were disappointed to find that our request for zip and link beds to be made as a double was not done despite receiving confirmation email to the request. I will explain the low rating given - these are constructive comments. Accuracy of listing: Property information says Off Road Parking - Arrival info email says one car only and in the next paragraph two. Make this clear prior to booking as folk with more than one car have a problem as off road parking is virtually non existent. Comfort: Downstairs was excellent. Upstairs I feel that the restricted headroom in the double bedroom and very small bathroom should be made clear in description. Facilities and Maintenance: Facilities very good but simple things such as hooks on bedroom door and bathroom are lacking. Decent mops to keep hallway clean and please replace the disgusting wet room rubber brush. Upstairs bathroom lock does not work as hole for lock is in wrong position - this has been mentioned in many previous reviews and would take minutes to fix. Kind regards Mark Harris

  • "The house is furnished and equipped to a high standard but we had to contact the agents to service the televisions as they had all been retuned so they did not pick up a signal."

    This in fairness was not the fault of the owners and was fixed within forty eight hours. However the visit was spoiled by building work being carried out adjacent to the property despite being told the week before our stay by the owners that no work was being done. The work had been going on for some considerable time so it had not started when we arrived. There is also major building work being carried out in the building opposite Kober.

    Thank you for your feedback, we are sorry to hear that work was carried out during your stay unfortunately we were unaware this would be going on at the time of your visit and hope it didn't have too much of an effect. We hope you enjoyed your stay overall. Property Owner

    The house was warm, clean and comfortable and we would happily stay there again. The only point I would mention is that the log burner shown in the photographs was an attraction when we booked, but apart from a few logs in the burner itself there was no supply on site or any indication as to what to do with any ashes. As a consequence we did not light the log burner. However the central heating was brilliant so the lack of logs was not a real problem.

    Nice property Few little things was TV's and Satellite TV could do with some easy instructions printed out., and we think the Upstairs Bathroom would be better on a manual switch rather than a PIR as sometimes you don't want all the bright lights on in the middle of night.

  • "We spent a few days at Kober House over new year and had a lovely time."

    Before I list off some pros and cons of the property, I want to say we would absolutely stay again! But over the course of the few days we did spot some areas that need some improvement. I’ll start with the Pros: The house was immaculate and finished to the highest spec, beautifully decorated with a sea theme of turquoise, whites and greys. Bedding and towels (supplied) were clean, crisp and fluffy. The kitchen was well equipped with a large fridge and various utensils, as well as a dishwasher and washer/dryer. When we arrived there was a Christmas tree in the lounge which we thought was a lovely touch. We went with my three year old toddler, who was very excited to see a toy box of age appropriate toys and lots of children’s books available. Had it been the summer, my daughter would’ve taken full advantage of the summer house and mud kitchen in the garden. We were greeted with a welcome pack of mince pies, cream tea items, tea bags, coffee pods, milk and schloer, which was a wonderful touch. The lounge is well equipped with mod cons, including an xbox, streaming channels and a decent size tv, but I’ll say more about this shortly. Overall most things had been thought of and catered to. Now for the Cons: The photography of the front exterior is slightly misleading. Looking at the pics you’re led to believe it’s a large driveway, which is actually very narrow as it’s shared with the house Nextdoor, and impressions from all of us were that it was a quiet location. Whilst it wasn’t a constant flow of traffic, the road was still fairly busy as it’s the main one through the town. The check-in time for this property is 5:30pm. Not such a problem in the summer with the light evenings as it’s Cornwall and there’s an abundance of activities to keep yourself / kids / dogs happy. But 5:30pm on a dark, drizzly mid-winter afternoon, with two cars packed full of items and a very grouchy toddler is not ideal. An earlier check-in during the winter months would be far more suitable - even by an hour! Check-out time is 10am. Sounds doable. But there’s a long check-out list of things to do - make sure the rubbish is bagged up and taken out, make sure the dishwasher has been put on and emptied, make sure the house is clean and tidy, make sure beds are stripped and put in the bath with used towels, everything - including furniture - needs to be put back as you’ve found it; then after all that you have to find time to pack your things and fill your car(s). It genuinely is a military operation! A slightly later check out, or a less rigorous checklist of things to do before you vacate would be preferred - it is supposed to be a holiday after all. The stairs are very steep which isn’t ideal for children if they’re of the age where they require a stair gate. This house has been designed with families in mind, there is a nursery with a cot and a child’s bed, so an option of a stair gate would be good. The bathroom door upstairs wouldn’t lock properly. I try to keep an open mind on properties before I go on holiday, so didn’t look at reviews, but having looked at some reviews since returning home I found a review from several years back that said the lock wasn’t working then either. Not great that this hasn’t been looked at. The driveway situation is difficult. A shared driveway with the house Nextdoor and a narrow parking place for one car only meant that loading/unloading the cars was a challenge. The narrow space for the one car meant that we had to unload the car in the middle of the shared turning circle before manoeuvring the car into its space. We came in two cars and I was lucky enough to blag a parking spot over the road, so we could place the family car in the driveway, but anyone who has young children will understand you need the space for cars - especially when the house is on a main road and you can’t risk your child running out of the driveway whilst your attention is on the car. You could argue “come in one car then”, but I can’t imagine we’ll be the only guests to come in two cars. More about the lounge tv now, its a smart tv, with every streaming app you can think of. But if, like me, you’re reluctant to log in with your details, you then have a situation where you either watch Samsung TV Plus which is old repeats all day and all night, or you have to accept defeat and sit in the kitchen so you can watch standard channels. A Freeview box with some standard channels would be useful. Mullion cove is lovely and pretty, albeit very sleepy and out in a limb from all of the main Cornish towns. This is ideal for some, but something to keep in mind if you want to be in the hub. Helston was 15 minutes’ drive, St Ives was about 45 minutes’ drive, Sennen Cove was 55 minutes’ drive. Unless you stay totally local, you’re getting in your car. Please don’t get me wrong, it was a lovely house and we felt very comfortable there. We said several times that everything had been thought of. But in my view this is a summer holiday house, not a winter stay.

The extractors in the shower room and bathroom don’t work and the water flow from the shower room sink tap is very slow.

    Very clean. Close to the beach and local amenities. Outside had a lovely playhouse and mud kitchen which was fab for our young boys. Lovely welcome pack with essentials needed on first arrival. Lovely touch. Few things I think the house could need is a long brush just to have a quick sweep rather than kit the hoover out. Pegs in the hallway for jackets. Garden could have done with a tidy up as was a lot of leaves on the Astro grass. Also the check in/check out times are a little bit too early/late. Especially with a young family. Overall a lovely place and would stay again.

    Small but secure back garden - happy to let the dog play outside with no concerns that he would get out. Location is great - Mullion village is lovely, nice pubs, a couple of small shops & a Chippy all within walking distance. Easy to get to loads of gorgeous beaches and things to do in the local area as well! Couple of minor points - the website just states that dogs are welcome. The information pack in the house asks for dogs not to be allowed upstairs. This should be made clear on the website, as if we had known this rule beforehand, we wouldn’t have booked it. Checkout time on Sykes info was stated as 09:00, but in the info pack at the house it says 10:00 - which one is it? Driveway is awkward and not really long enough for 2 cars without one sticking out at the front - not a major issue. Also, there is a loose plastic drain cover - if you drive over it, it’s prone to move and expose a large hole. This needs fixing.

    On arrival there was milk, scones jam & cream, treats for the dog & a welcome soft drink! This was really lovely! The coop opposite was really handy and to get to Poldhu was less than 5 minutes! There was a lovely fish and chip shop next door. With there only being a few places to stay in Mullion, it has a lovely quiet tourist free feel. Our only issues hence the 4* not 5, was the sensor lights on the upstairs bathroom (& this possibly could have been switched off but we couldn’t work it out). If our 3yo stirred the light would come on & properly wake him up with the room being opposite. The sofa / living area. The sofas were really uncomfortable to relax on in the evening for adults. The pub being a few buildings up was really noisy if the windows were open on their event nights but can’t be helped. Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay & would most definitely come again!

  • "The cottage is well equipped."

    The kitchen especially is one of the best equipped we have seen in cottages. The house in general is well suited for four people. We had a baby and a pet in addition, and this worked really well. The rooms are comfortable and well decorated. There is enough and comfortable seating in the living room for four people (which is not often the case in all cottages). You can walk to the beach from the house (it's about 15 minutes by foot) as well as Mullion cove. The surrounding area is great, lots of lovely beaches within 20-40min driving distance as well. Whilst some people have commented that the door is weird as it talks to people, we found it really practical as it requires no key collection and you can simply enter a code. If you share with friends, everyone can just come and go without worrying about who has the key. I can really recommend the cottage. There are a few areas of recommendation for the owners, some of which have been mentioned before by others: The upstairs bathroom door - it's really awkward - it cannot be opened properly from the inside as there is no knob to push the door outwards with. It would be much better to fit a normal outward opening door. The lawn outside: given that it's a pet friendly cottage, having artificial grass is probably not the best idea if you don't have a dedicate area (e.g., of sand or something similar) for pets to toilet... just a suggestion. The starter kit for the log burner involved one soaking wet log - luckily we brought our own seasoned wood, but it would be worth thinking about this...

    It sits quite centrally between and within the very best bits of Cornwall. It's within walking distance of Polurrian Cove and only 10-15 mins drive from some glorious beaches (many of them disappear at high tide, so check tide times). Within a few hundred yards of the house there are several pubs that serve good food, a decent chippy and an award-winning pasty maker (in the Spar shop). From Kober House we struck out further afield to Botallack mine, Sennen, St Michael's Mount and the Eden Project. It's a modern, clean house which was very comfortable. We enjoyed our week there and were reluctant to leave. However, our complaints are: The parking was very tight for us. We have a 4x4 and it took a lot of manoeuvring to get out of the allocated space, especially as the neighbour parks on the turning area at the front. It is not made clear in the description that the drive is shared. The upstairs bathroom is rather pokey with a sloping ceiling that we constantly knocked our heads on. The garden is not secure at all with large holes in the rear hedge and a significant drop to the garden behind. This could easily be rectified with a chain-link fence. There are no recycling facilities.

  • "The location of Kober House is good for exploring the area."

    Mullion is a very picturesque place, and there are some stunning beaches, coves, and clifftop walks nearby. The local shops are well equipped and easy to reach. Plenty of eating places, the curry place was excellent, fish and chip shop very good and pubs nearby too. We had a wonderful family holiday, and the fact that we could take our dog made it extra special. The house was spacious, well equipped and comfortable. We enjoyed having a log fire. Parking wasn’t a problem, and we easily got two cars alongside the right hand side of the house, leaving the drive free for turning. There is parking on the road if needed. The beds were comfortable. Bathrooms were good, but the sink in the upstairs bathroom is small, and the door is a little tricky to slide across until you get used to it. The kitchen was home from home, and the lounge was great for relaxing in, especially the large, circular chair. There are two complaints, both are important to note. Firstly, there was no recycling bin on site which made sorting our waste more tricky. It wasn’t possible to take all our recycling to a local collection point, so we would love there to be recycling containers at the house. Secondly, the garden is not enclosed and safe for dogs. We have a largish dog, a lurcher, and he found at least six holes in the hedge to escape the garden. We could only take him out in the garden on a lead. Worryingly the other side of the hedge is a drop of a few feet off a wall into the garden behind. Also there was some rusting wire tucked into the hedge which could hurt an unsuspecting dog. We thought the problem could easily be remedied by some fencing ( wooden or wire) behind the hedge to stop escapes to the neighbouring garden, or the holes in the hedge being blocked with fencing. It can’t be described accurately as an “enclosed” garden when you have a dog with you. Both those points are minor, and they didn’t detract from the holiday, but I feel it is important to draw attention to them. The cream tea on arrival, numerous leaflets and holiday information, visitors book, and WiFi made for a more personalised stay. We would love to return to the area in the future, and would definitely stay at Kober House. We thoroughly recommend it to anyone intending to stay on the Lizard or nearby.

Do NOT be fooled by the large gravel drive it is her land and not Kober House!! The Village Inn pub is great for a meal and a short stroll away. Poldhu Beach is only a mile away and a very clean beach with all facilities and parking. All in all a great place to stay.

  • "We loved the cottage from the moment we pulled up, it is beautifully designed and has everything you need (and more!"

    ). It is very family and child friendly, our 2 year old granddaughter absolutely loved the mud kitchen and Twigwam in the garden! Mullion is a nice little place and everything is within easy reach, either on foot (a 5 minute walk to the nearest shop (CoOp), 2 minutes to the Fish and Chips shop, 20 minutes to the beach (although dogs are not permitted on the beach the walk down is perfect for them) and a couple of pubs) or relatively short journeys by car to gorgeous places to visit. We arrived in two relatively big cars and both fitted snugly into the car parking space to the right side of the property - however, this is not agreeable to the next door neighbour who appears to be very unhappy with that arrangement.... The one thing that would have been useful is a rubbish bin outside of the property; a couple of bags had been left out/forgotten by the housekeeper and were targeted by seagulls. We have had a wonderful stay at Kober House and can wholeheartedly recommend it - we would certainly return. Many thanks.
