    The Shed is just perfect, spotlessly clean with everything you could need and more, lots of little things have been thought about and are provided, giving it the home from home feeling. The interior is modern and to a high spec. Great TV and package. Wonderful hot tub. The owners Ryan and Jodie are so friendly and helpful and nothing is too much trouble. We had a wonderful cream tea on arrival which was a lovely unexpected touch. The area is beautiful and right next to the sea. We would highly recommend the accommodation and hope to visit again in the future. Thank you for being fantastic hosts and for and enjoyable stay.

  • "We had a lovely stay at ‘The Shed’."

    It was smaller than I realised it would be at first but it was so comfortable and the hot tub outside was very much enjoyed by my husband, except on nights the weather was bad. The only issues are that Sykes listed the second bedroom as a double but it isn’t it’s a twin and can’t be made into a double because one bed is slightly lower than the other. The second issue was that the tv doesn’t have any channels so you can’t just pop something on whilst having food for example, but it is a Smart tv so you have most of the On Demand channels so it wasn’t a huge issue. Jodie and her husband were very knowledgeable, they always replied to messages and popped over to chat if we were all outside at the same time. Everything was perfect and we would definitely return but in hopefully better weather.

  • "We’ve just had a week at The Shed in Mullion."

    What a great week we’ve had. Perfect little cottage in a great location. Two great pubs within walking distance up in the village, we also watched the local cricket team twice. The Shed is only a few minutes to the beach where we had some stunning sun sets. The South West Coastal Path is only a few minutes walk away. We walked to Kynance Cove one day & Porthleven next, after both walks the ‘massive’ hot tub was amazing on our aching legs. Great holiday & a great little find. Our hosts were very friendly & helpful. I would stay again and would highly recommend. Thanks guys.

  • "Fantastic stay at a lovely property, we loved the hot tub too."

    Great hosts, our kids enjoyed playing with their children and we loved exploring the local area-great beaches, visited Trebah gardens and St Michaels Mount which were both beautiful. Property had everything we needed…washing machine, bath, comfy beds, WiFi and smart tv etc (a few extra hooks on the back of bedroom doors or in hallway for coats/towels would be handy though!) and it was spotlessly clean when we arrived. We wouldn’t often return to the same place but we love to come back here. We would definitely recommend to others, Thankyou for a lovely stay.
