  • "We stayed here in May and couldn’t wait to return."

    The cottage has everything we need for our comfort and was cosy and clean. We hope to stay here again next year. We did find the key safe very tricky to use and instructions for the microwave would have been helpful, but neither spoilt the enjoyment of our holiday.

    Thank you so much for your positive feedback and I'm so happy that you are looking to come back to Mazey! I have now printed out instructions for the microwave and they will be in the property and I will ask Mark to look at the key safe. Thank you again for your feedback and I'm so happy you had a lovely time Property Owner

    The lounge was very comfortable and the bedroom was amazing! The cottage was much more spacious than we thought it would be.

  • "Overall we had a lovely stay at Mazey Cottage."

    It is a lovely house and the bed in the main bedroom was scrumptious! The Front and back garden needs some tidying up and the bathroom could do with an update. The downfall for us was that it was at the top of a very steep hill (probably a 15 min walk up) and therefore could not walk into Penzance as I would not have been able to get back up. So be aware if you have any mobility issues. It did not stop us from having a lovely time and exploring glorious Cornwall. Thank you too for the cream tea that was there on arrival. A very nice gesture.

    Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review of your stay at Mazey Cottage and I'm so happy to hear that you found the cottage comfortable as it is so important to me that you feel at home and have everything you need there to help you enjoy your stay in this beautiful part of the country. I am very sorry though about the garden we had an issue with one of the employees from the gardening firm not showing up to attend the gardens for the last 2 weeks, unfortunately they had some personal issues and had to leave but all has now been resolved and both gardens have been tidied up and are now looking lovely again. There are a few different ways to walk into the town from the cottage and there is a flat option. If you turn right at the end of Treassowe Road and walk across the recreation ground then left you will come out at the top of Causeway Head in the town and it takes us under 10 minutes so I will make sure to put this into the visitors book so future guests are aware of this option. Thank you again for your review and I wish you a very happy summer and hope to welcome you back to Mazey cottage in the future. Rachel :-) Property Owner

  • "We've had a really good week in mazey cottage, the owner is a really nice man who gave us lots of tips on where to go!"

    The cottage itself was clean and well equipped. You can see it's being renovated as bedrooms and lounge were new. Always places to park on the street. Friendly area. There's a few cons: the grass area is overgrown and unusable. There is a damp issue at the back of the house (it is an old house so expected) but that needs sorting because it was not suitable for our baby. The high chair wasn't clean and unfortunately had mould because of being stored in a cupboard at the back of the house, I had to deep clean this upon arrival. This could do with a new home until the damp is sorted. When this is sorted we would return, as we enjoyed walking into Penzance (quite far and steep) and enjoyed a short car ride into st Ives. Long rock beach was lovely and dog friendly all year round, most other beaches didn't allow dogs from July and August.

    Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review about your stay at Mazey cottage. It's extremely important to me that our guests enjoy their stay so I am keen to resolve any issues as soon as they arise. I am very sorry for the issues you had with the back bedroom and with the garden. We have an amazing 'handyman' who is super reliable and we can always rely on him to fix any maintenance issues so he has been in last week to solve the problem with the damp and I am also dealing with the cleaners about the high chair. Unfortunately one of the people who works for the gardener who has always attended the property every Friday had not been there the last 2 weeks and has subsequently left but the problem has now been solved-we have a replacement gardener and the owner of the firm has been in to make up for the work that was missed and the garden is looking lovely again. I am happy to hear that you had a good week and please feel reassured that the issues you had have now been rectified as we would love to welcome you back to Mazey Cottage in the future.

  • "We spent a pleasant fortnight at Mazey Cottage."

    It is in a good location close to bus and train station and an easy walk down to the town centre and promenade. Bus service around the coast is great and saves the use of a car if you don’t mind an energetic walk back uphill! The cottage makes for a pleasant stay and the beds in particular were extremely comfortable and made for a good nights’s sleep. We had a couple of small issues (leaking toilet and broken washing machine) which were rectified. The only criticism is that the bathroom lets this property down. The grouting badly needs redoing and the shower screen also as it makes the bathroom look dirty (even though it isn’t). The toilet cistern handle had to be fixed as it had a bad leak but even after fixing the flush wasn’t great. Shame that this lets a nice cottage down.

    It is situated on a quiet pleasant street on the hills above Penzance centre and is in an ideal location for visiting local beaches and other tourist attractions. The neighbours along the street are very friendly too.

  • "We had a lovely stay at Mazey Cottage."

    The Cream Tea and pint of milk left for us was a wonderful surprise. 2 sun loungers were a real treat in the sunny back garden which got the sun until tea time and then the patio set in the front garden which got the evening sun were a joy to use. The kitchen was well equipped, the dining room was always cool, the living room was comfy with a nice big window to let in the sea breeze. The beds were huge and so comfortable. The upstairs snug was great if you wanted to be inside and to read quietly or watch TV. Parking was easy either right outside the house or just opposite across the road. It was in a great location, very quiet at the end of the road, turn left at the other end of the road and you could see the sea. Everything was within walking distance the train station the bus station the sea the shops, pubs, restaurants. We went to St Ives on an open topped bus which was amazing. The weather was fabulous, we couldn't of asked for a better week and cant wait to return to Mazey Cottage. Thank you.

    Thank you so so much for such lovely feedback it really does mean a lot and I do hope to be able to welcome you back to Mazey cottage again. Rachel Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely week stopping at Mazey Cottage."

    The location was great, just 15 minutes walk right into the centre of PZ. Parking was never an issue & the garage was great for storage. We stored our roofbox in there but could easily be used for a kayak etc. The cottage was clean & beautifully decorated in a seaside theme. We felt the 'play room' upstairs was a bit of a waste of a room, which could've been a 3rd bedroom but then we don't have small children anymore. The scones, jam & cream was a lovely touch thank you. Love a bit of Rhoddas! The only 2 things we would liked to be different would be better pillows in the main bedroom (ours were v flat & hard) and a better shower. The shower especially I think lets the rest of the house down a little but wouldn't stop us from coming back. But loved it, even spent a couple of evenings in the front garden having a beer on the small table & chairs. V nice

  • "Property has obviously been refurbished and redecorated recently and was spotless and well-equipped."

    Back garden was a mess - the grass hadn't been cut for weeks (since taken up with the owners). Insufficient towels were left for the number of occupants and it took two lengthy phone calls to Sykes to get this remedied. The on-street parking in the property details is described as "ample" - and it isn't !! It's difficult. And the garage to the property is not really useable, other than for a small car.

Penzance hosts Golowan, the Midsummer Carnival, and The Literary Festival. There are also The Exchange, Newlyn and Penlee Art Galleries. One of Cornwall’s most popular holiday areas is the spectacular sweep of Mount’s Bay, from the cliffside fishing village of Mousehole through Penzance and around to beautiful Marazion, the coastline hides a wealth of sandy beaches, rocky coves as well as winding village streets and other places to visit and explore. Connected by a 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 it is the jumping-off point for day trips to the Isles of Scilly as well as being the harbor. 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.
