  • "We loved our stay here and extended for a second week."

    The host is close to hand and was very friendly and welcoming and always willing to help, but was very respectful of our privacy and never bothered us. It's a lovely, clean cottage in a very peaceful and pretty location. We wish we could have stayed longer, and can't wait to come back!

    Lovely welcome from Penny plus flowers, biscuits and cider and treats for Lu. Everything we needed, comfortable and bright. Great access to both coasts and walks, attractions, cafes etc.

  • "Bailey Cottage is ideal as a peaceful retreat and base for exploring Cornwall."

    Communication with our hosts was excellent with clear,helpful instructions and Cornish biscuits and cider to welcome us. The cottage itself is beautifully clean and very well equipped.The bed in the second bedroom is small which was fine for me as I’m only 5’1. The kitchen is great but it’s the only time I’ve been to a holiday cottage and not found basics like salt and pepper in the cupboard.Luckily the shop in the village is only a few minutes drive and stays open quite late.There are nice pubs only a few minutes drive away too. The Golden Lion by the lake is excellent for food and dog friendly. We enjoyed our stay in Bailey Cottage. It was quiet, clean,comfortable and well equipped.Thank you!

    Hello I'm glad you enjoyed your stay at Bailey Cottage. I just wanted to address the two issues you had whilst here. I've finally got round to measuring the single bed and it does in fact measure 6ft x 2ft 6 which is in fact a "small single". I will either change it to a standard size or address this in the write up for the room, apologies. Regarding the items we supply. During the season after lockdown, policy was very strict about what could and could not be left or provided for guests . I don't know any owners who would buy new packets of salt and pepper each week each week. (I personally would not consume items that were not in sealed/unopen packaging and don't think you would either) . We do provide many other items i.e. local produced Cider and apple drink for a child. Dog treats, flowers, local Furniss biscuits, cleaning products and cloths, bin liners, quality bath sheets and hand towels and a good quality toilet roll, dog anchor and ice cube bags. if you choose to book with us again you will be very welcome and I will pop some in for you. Regards Penny Property Owner

  • "This is a simple but great little cottage."

    It is quiet and peaceful. It is quite a hike to the local pubs but not far by car. We ate at both of the locals and preferred The Seven Stars. Blue, our dog, loved the garden and surrounding fields. The owners, who live next door, are lovely. When we got a bit lost on the way in Penny came and saved us. They bent over backwards to ensure we had everything we needed. Very friendly. Stithians is really central and allows you easy access to the rest of Cornwall. All in, we had a great week.

    Thank you very much.x Property Owner

  • "I had a lovely week at Bailey Cottage with my rescue dog Spotty."

    Spotty was a street dog from India who craves peace and quiet. The cottage was spotlessly clean and well equipped with everything you would need. The owners left apple juice, cider and local biscuits which were a lovely touch. The cottage was warm and cosy, and I would highly recommend it for anyone needing to escape the stresses of the world!

    Thank you very much Property Owner

  • "I loved this property."

    It was on it’s own yet the owners were just next door. It was beautifully warm (welcomed in the inclement March weather) The facilities were excellent, the bed was very comfortable and it was very useful having a washing machine. There was plenty of space outside for car parking and a lovely patio area with table and chairs which sadly I was unable to use due to the frequent rain showers. This was an ideal area for walking, there were masses of footpaths everywhere. I will return definitely. A very big thank you to the owners.

    Thank you x Property Owner

The property

Bailey Cottage is a stylish single-storey cottage standing detached from the owner's home in a tranquil rural setting near Stithians village, close to Falmouth in Cornwall.

Set on one floor, the cool white interior, splashed with vibrant colourful furnishings makes for inviting accommodation; perfect for couples or a small family looking to explore the wonders of Cornwall.

The open-plan living space consists of a contemporary, fully-equipped kitchen where you can whip up tasty meals for the whole family, a neat dining area to enjoy them and a spacious sitting area which is the perfect place to unwind after a day full of exploration.

When the evening draws to a close, retire to either of the two bright and airy bedrooms; a king-size looking over the gardens and fields beyond, and a single room.

A smart bathroom offers a walk-in shower cubicle, perfect for a good soak after a long day on the beach.

To the front of the cottage is a lawned garden and to the rear, a small gravelled courtyard with a picnic bench to enjoy the warm evening sun.

Stithians has a small Post Office/store and The Golden Lion Inn which serves good food, ideal for a much-needed break from the kitchen.

Stithians Lake is popular for watersports, providing hours of endless fun as well as angling and birdwatching; there are also an abundance of walks woven throughout the surrounding countryside.

Just a short drive away is the bustling harbour town of Falmouth which boasts golden sandy beaches where you can soak up the sun, splash around in the sea or simply admire the breath-taking views.

You can also find the tranquil creeks and inlets of Restronguet and Mylor, a number of golf courses, tropical gardens and the coast to coast cycle trail.

With so much to see and do Bailey Cottage is ideally situated for exploring the best of this part of Cornwall.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.

About the location


Falmouth 7.8 miles; Truro 9.5 miles

This Cornish village and civil parish lies within the north-westerly fringes of Falmouth near the towns of Redruth and Helston as well as the city of Truro, a wonderful location for a holiday. The 300-acre Stithians Reservoir, a hot spot for birdwatching and watersports or scenic walks with the family, bounds the village on the west. Stithians also plays host to a shop, pub and parish church, yet is best-known for its agricultural show, one of the largest of its kind in the UK. Attractions and things to do nearby include Pendennis and St. Mawes Castle on the south coast, both constructed in the 16th century, the tranquil Trelissick Garden near the city of Truro offering wonderful views over the River Fal, and the beautiful Tregothnan Estate home to 40 hectares of land. You are also within easy reach of the Lost Gardens of Heligan and the Eden Project as well as the delightful fishing harbours of Fowey and Polperro along the Heritage Coast. A fabulous choice for a holiday in Cornwall.
