“My second stay at Skippers, but first time for my grandchildren who had a wonderful time and loved their room with the bunk beds.”
They are planning their next trip. The cottage is sensitively modernised so has not lost its character
“Please can the owners consider parking permit for the property at £100 a year instead of each holiday maker paying £30 a week.”
***OWNERS RESPONSE*** Thank you for taking the time to submit your feedback. I looked into purchasing an annual parking ticket, however they are vehicle specific and would therefore not be suitable for a holiday cottage.
“We had a great holiday , the cottage is lovely and has been well kept .”
My only moan was that there were old stains on our bed sheets , you could tell that they had been laundered but it wasn't nice . Also there was a big stain on one of the single mattresses in the twin room . This is our second visit to this cottage and we felt that it had not quiet the same attention to detail paid to the cleanliness of the property .***OWNER RESPONSE***Thank you very much for your comments and thank you for returning to Skippers, it's great to have had you back! We're sorry to hear you found some of the bedding not quite up to par and would like to reassure you this is being taken care of. We do wish you had said something as we'd have been anxious to put it right for you during your latest visit. We're delighted you enjoyed another stay.
“We had a lovely week at 'Skippers' The cottage was well placed in the village, within easy walking distance to pubs, restaurants, ferries and the beach.”
There were good walks from the village and a great Co-op convenience store and a couple of good gift shops. It was useful having the two bath/ shower rooms and the front garden was ideal for sunshine pretty much all day with the conservatory a good place to eat meals and chill out. The kitchen was very well equipped. A super base especially for those wanting to leave the car parked up and just enjoy the holiday.
In St.Mawes close to Summer’s Beach sits Skippers, a charming traditional cottage in a row of similar cottages.
It is just right for a small family or couple.
Step from the garden in to the conservatory complete with dining table and chairs where meals can be enjoyed with a view of the beach, through to the cosy living room with a wood-burning stove and the well-equipped galley style kitchen with breakfast table and chairs.
Head up the stairs to three bedrooms – a double with en suite shower-room, and a bunk room, both of these rooms have sea views, and a single room.
There is also a family bathroom.
The sunny little patio garden with garden furniture is to the front of the cottage.
A convenient cottage in a beautiful part of Cornwall, where there are so many wonderful coves to explore and the fascinating maritime town of Falmouth just a ferry journey away.
