    The Slipway is a very cosy and comfortable cottage. It was exactly what we had hoped for during our two night stay. Perfect location and close to everything in town. The very welcome box of chocolates and red wine were also appreciated - thank you. There are a few things I would like to mention, which might be useful to the owners: Firstly, it would have been so nice to have arrived to find some milk in the fridge, and some teabags. We struggled through the snow and ice of "The Beast of the East" to get to Slipway and then found we had to go out immediately to buy these simple, cheap items before we could make ourselves a cuppa. Also the coffee and tea mugs were badly stained and I had to wash some cutlery and crockery before using them. It would have been really helpful, too, if there had been some soap in the bathroom - again, it was another trip the shops in the freezing temperatures. Secondly, we asked for a slightly later check out on Sunday (one hour) which Thaddeus kindly agreed to; but I just wonder if 3pm check in and a 10am check out is rather ungenerous, even for allowing for the cleaners to changeover. In my experience a 2pm check in and a 12 midday check out has been the norm. These are only observations which I hope might be useful. They didn't stop us having a lovely time a The Slipway - albeit very short. Thank you again.

About the location


St Ives 8 miles.

One of Cornwall’s most popular holiday areas. The spectacular sweep of Mount’s Bay, from the cliffside fishing village of Mousehole through Penzance and around to beautiful Marazion, hides a wealth of sandy beaches, rocky coves, winding village streets and other places to visit and explore. Connected by causeway to the shore at Marazion is the National Trust’s stunningly beautiful St Michael’s Mount with its hilltop castle and Mediterranean gardens. Walk across at low water and take one of the ferry boats back when the tide is up. Penzance with its winding streets, shops, clubs, restaurants and harbour is a must as is the jumping-off point for day trips to the Scilly Isles. The South West Coast Path passing through Penzance winds its way along the clifftops towards Land’s End. On the way, stop off for a coffee and a rest at beautiful Lamorna Cove, explore the open air Minack Theatre and marvel at the cliffs as you approach Gwennap Head. A stunning walk for those seeking solitude, exercise and some of the UK’s best coastal scenery. Penzance is the perfect holiday base. Ideally placed for exploring this land of Celtic myth and legend and with enough to do and see in the immediate area to keep all the family occupied.
