  • "Very cosy cottage, with excellent hosts."

    Ideal spot for dog walkers. Lovely local beaches, especially at Perranuthnoe, which is a lovely spot for a day on the beach,serviced by some delightful coffee shops.

  • "We really enjoyed our stay at the Packing house, and will definitely return."

    Ian and Dawn are great hosts Their family has been here for several generations, and it was fascinating to learn the history of the farm. The enclosed garden was great to let our dog loose in, and there are lots of walks directly from the farm to discover. The farm itself is well positioned between Penzance and Helston, with Porthleven and the Lizard well worth a visit. St Ives is nearby too, best accessed by train from St Erth with the prettiest train journey .

  • "We spent five days in the property which was clean and comfortable."

    the owners were very personable and helpful. From a dog's point of view, the dog shower (which does have hot water, in case you were wondering) was a great facility, as was the enclosed garden and easy access to the lane and local walks. On site parking was a bonus. The wifi was fast. The Long Reach beach adjacent to St. Michael's mount is an ideal spot to run your dog(s) and free on Sundays, only £1.20 for 24 hours on other days. There are at least three major supermarkets near Long Reach, as you travel towards Penzance and a more local Co-op. You can easily walk from Long Reach into Marazion or Penzance along a coastal path.The Packing House was a good location for touring the south coast, from Sennen to Truro, to Falmouth and Helston. A successful holiday in a comfortable and well located property, we even had a few dry and fresh days :-)

    Most importantly the owners were very jolly & helpful, its such a peaceful area but close to Perranuthnoe beach,very good Co op with all you need only 2 mins away, St Micheals Mount, Marazion & Penzance less than 15 mins away. Highly recommend.

  • "Great location and owners were very friendly and helpful."

    Only negative was the double bed, it was too soft for us (I know that is personal preference) and could ideally be bigger (the room could accommodate a bigger bed) but that said a great stay. As other people say, the internet connectivity in Cornwall is terrible, if you have teenagers who live online then just because a cottage says it has wifi, don't assume this means it always works (outside of the towns it's unreliable). Great stay and gorgeous local beaches, I would recommend this location.

  • "Great little place, we had a good holiday and enjoyed the hot tub."

    Couple of issues the TV was just basic with remote not working well, no smart TV so unable to watch much. Also only 1 toilet roll so we had to pop out to buy toilet rolls and washing up liquid. Overall lovely place and the hot tub is definitely a great addition to the place, we had lovely weather for a few days so really enjoyed it. The owners are also lovely and recommended places for us to visit while we were there. Thanks Mahmoona & Waqas

    Very clean on arrival, washing machine and dishwasher was very handy. The owners are lovely, good advice from Ian on walks in the local area, and also local pub recommendations. The Hot tub was wonderful after a days walking and the chemicals were checked by the owners daily. All in all lovely place, peaceful, relaxing, good for looking at the stars in the hot tub at night, but also only a 10 min drive to supermarket ect. The Only thing, and this is personal preference, the mattress in the double bed was very soft, and we rolled together in the night, we prefer a firm mattress, but this did not effect our stay at all.

    The area was fantastic and good spot for a holiday.. All the places are near by. The owners were extremely kind and nice to us. I was one of the vulnerable people in Uk. This holiday was for me to see my daughter after 6 month who lives Cornwall and a first break for me to be out of the house as I was shielding since March. We want to stay near the beach . So we booked this. Cottage. We were bit worried before we went how the cottage going to be in term of cleanliness . It was fantastic. It was super clean. You will have everything over there to live on. We cooked Our own meals. They had hot tub. Which was fantastic after long day outing. My husband went for fishing unfortunately it wasn’t the season so he didn’t catch any. But owners were very kind they had some catch in their boat and gave us some mackerel. They were so friendly and kind . Place was very private and quiet. We loved it. Can go for long walk around that area lovely. People are very friendly and lovely. We really had a good break. We will go again. I will definitely recommend this cottage to my family and friends. From :Anonymous (public as Anonymous)

    The cottage is well equipped, with all modern amenities and is very peaceful and well placed for what we wanted to do in the area. Hot tub was great. There were cobwebs on the ceiling lights in the living room, on the ceiling light in one of the bedrooms and on the garden chairs. We were only given one toilet roll, which meant we had to go shopping straight away for loo roll, which was a little annoying. These issues didn't affect our stay as a whole though, just minor niggles.
