  • "A lovely cottage quietly situated up a cul-de sac."

    Very clean and comfortable with all the amenities you need. Great location for a walking holiday. Super walks, excellent pubs, a Spar shop across the road. What more do you need? Jon the cottage owner visited to check we had all we need. He made us very welcome We would highly recommend this cottage

    Many thanks for taking the time to leave a great review, it is greatly appreciated. We are very blessed in Pendeen (which is part of the Mining World Heritage Site) and the surrounding areas that cater for all needs - an abundance of excellent beaches and coves, many varied walks both coastal and inland, fantastic pubs/food , excellent public transport, local amenities, museums, both Stone Age and Iron Age monuments (some that are older than the Egyptian pyramids) and the weather has been wonderful. So pleased that you enjoyed your stay and hope to see again. Best regards Jon Property Owner

    It provided everything needed, an extremely generous welcome hamper, and clear instructions for all appliances including the wood burner. A slight hiccup with the boiler was swiftly dealt with and additionally compensated for. We’ll be back!

    The cottage is spotless and spacious and really well located for lots of walks. Lovely bedlinen and big bath towels, well equipped kitchen, big lounge with lots of seating and a welcome hamper. We have stayed in a lot of holiday cottages but never one with as much evidence of the owner's care and attention to detail.

All that are involved with the cottage work very hard to maintain our high standards so that each stay will be comfortable and relaxing, and therefore all feedback is welcomed.

  • "This is a beautiful, well equipped cottage."

    Perfectly positioned to explore the area, with Lands End, Cape Cornwall and the Tin Mine museum all pretty much only a stone throw away. Not to mention St Michael’s Mount is only a short drive. Local pubs also offer great hospitality and food. If you want to explore this part of Cornwall, you won’t go wrong from this cottage

    Thank you we greatly appreciate your comments and taking the time to leave feedback. I am very pleased you enjoyed your stay. Throughout the year there is so much to do here, both the north and the south coast being within easy reach of Pendeen enables various options to explore the surrounding areas. Hope you can return for another holiday. Best wishes Jon Property Owner

  • "Spotlessly clean and very comfy bed."

    Kitchen exceptionally well equipped. It was a very nice touch for the owner to call round to welcome us and talk us through the heating etc - although there was a very comprehensive folder with all instruction manuals. Welcome pack not only for us but also for the dog. Lovely wild flowers on the kitchen table. Jon also popped round the next day with some lovely home made scones for us, which were absolutely delicious. Worth reading the visitor's book to see where to go and where to eat - although Jon had already given all this info during his introduction. Would not hesitate to recommend and would stay again.

    Many thanks for taking the time to leave your generous feedback In both the visitor's book and on the website it is greatly appreciated. It was lovely to meet you all and definitely a pleasure to help wrt to your stay about the area and the cottage. Hope to see you all very soon. Best regards Jon Property Owner

  • "Fabulously comfortable, home from home cottage."

    There's so much to mention about this spacious property that is great, so will highlight a few; superb lounge with log burner and generous sofas, super comfy beds, generous bathroom and shower, well equipped kitchen and a safe garden for dogs unless they are fence jumpers! It was good to have a parking space and we walked several times a day down to the coast, minutes away, and up the the higher ground, inland. Handy to be able to stroll to local pubs for food (all dog friendly) and a must try, Geevor Mine Cafe, 10 minutes away. Jon the owner is a friendly and knowledgeable host, always an asset when you are new to visiting the area. We would highly recommend staying in this lovely cottage and will be heading back there.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback and giving such a fantastic review it is greatly appreciated. It's good to know that you enjoyed the many fantastic beaches, glorious walks and the local amenities within easy reach of the cottage.

    Bright, comfortable, airy property in a quiet cul-de-sac, with just the sound of bird song. There are bus stops on either side of the road which we found were a great way of seeing the beauty of Cornwall that was all around. The hedgerows are truly wonderful at this time of year. The most fabulous walks and wonderful sunsets. Jon was really helpful, he has such a great knowledge of the area, we never bothered to Google, we just asked Jon!! Will return again, to just walk the cliff paths & enjoy everything about this special place.

  • "Great property, large lounge, comfortable sofas and wood-burner with a few days logs supplied, lovely start up groceries, secure garden ideal for dogs, clean, tidy, well equipped, ideal location just a short walk from the doorstep to the SW coastal path."

    No need to leave Pendeen village for good places to eat all within 2 mins walk Portuguese tapas at Maria Chica, North Inn serving the best pub food and 10 mins walk Geevor Tin Mine cafe with fantastic views straight out to sea. Discovered many circular walking routes back to the cottage, unspoilt coves accessible only by foot, Pendeen Lighthouse and Geevor all walkable. Short car journey to Penzance, Praa Sands about 20 mins away and The Lizard not too far, close links to A30. Good locality but equally good for a base to explore a wider area. Owner very helpful and always available to give assistance with local knowledge on hidden gems to explore. Thoroughly recommend and very sad to leave!

  • "We had a wonderful stay at 15 Boscaswell Downs - a lovely, clean and well equipped property in a perfect location."

    We couldn’t have wished for more! There are plenty of things to see and do in the surrounding area, especially the beautiful beaches and the most amazing sunsets. If you are able to venture off the beaten track you will certainly find more of the area’s most natural beauty. We absolutely loved the stunning Portheras Cove which is about half an hour walk from Pendeen Lighthouse on the coastal footpath. It’s not the easiest of walks (especially with arms full of beach equipment!) but it’s well worth it! And we also enjoyed a lovely walk from Sennen Harbour towards Lands End where you will come across the RMS Mulheim shipwreck. A day on the open top coaster bus is also highly recommended, for which the bus stops just 2 minutes away from the property on the main road near the shop. (On that note, the shop being just 2 minutes away from the property is also extremely handy!) So much to keep the family entertained, and all topped off with cosy nights in this ideal homely property. We found that we were short of nothing in the kitchen and all appliances were easy to use. The beds were comfortable and we all slept very well. And we felt perfectly settled into the living room on an evening with a cup of Cornish Tea and shortbread biscuits! Would highly recommend this property to anybody looking to discover this beautiful natural area.

    Thank you very much for your wonderful review.

    The area is beautiful with lots of local walks over the top or to beautiful beaches and mines. The people around were very friendly, in the pubs and shops. The house was very clean, relaxing and conformable and had everything we needed for our week away. Two minor things that may be worth reporting but didn't detract at all from our holiday and time in the house: we could not get terrestrial TV as there was no aerial and we tried through the roku but it was very slow to connect to anything. Maybe we weren't doing the right thing but we had no instructions. We had brought our firestick though so could stream iplayer to watch tennis and women's footy - we didn't use the TV much really though. The double bed mattress was a bit uncomfortable and has a slight dip in the middle but we slept pretty well anyway. We really did have a lovely time in a great house and location and would book again without hesitation, so would like to thanks to the owner and housekeeper for their thought and care.

    Thank you for taking the time to complete your feedback following your recent stay at 15 Boscaswell Downs. We are sorry you were unable to find the instructions to operate the TV which are in the properties information folder. The TV is run from a Roku firestick, offering all apps and regular TV channels, this works extremely well using the super fast broadband that this property offers. Mattresses are a personal preference and we are pleased to hear that you slept well. Number 15 is a new property with us and the owner is keen to ensure all guests have the best time, had you contacted us on either of these points we would have been more than happy to help resolve them. We hope to welcome you back in the near future. Property Owner
