We are both Cornish but do not live in Cornwall. We bought the cottage so that we could visit our elderly parents. We consider Dharma House our home and maintain it as such. It is well equipped, therefore. We have been letting it for several years now and aim to meet the expectations of modern guests.

Traditional granite cottage. Centrally located in West Cormwall only a five minute drive to either the North or South Coast. Quiet. Good for walkers. Sleeps five comfortably. Attentive to guests comments and suggestions so continually improving.

Wood-burning stove. Pleasant garden. Well-equipped. Parking for two cars. No hidden extra costs.

Just Perfect

  • Review Submitted: 11-Nov-2012
  • Date of Stay: Oct 2012
We thought that the cottage was just perfect. Although we're not experienced cottage-hirers, we were surprised how nicely decorated it was, how comfortable, how easy to locate and how well located. We appreciated the welcoming touches of the tea, milk, flowers and logs. Our planned first night out ended up as a night in! Everything worked, the traditional games were fun and the plentiful guide/historical books gave us fresh ideas on where to visit during the half term. The weather held well enough too (but that wasn't in the contract so...).

Rural but Central

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 02-May-2012
  • Date of Stay: Apr 2012
Right after arrival we ignited the fireplace which was all well prepared, so the oven got warm quickly and burned nicely. For trips to St. Ives, Carbis Bay, Penzance, Seals sanctuary, Hayle, Porthleven, Marazion, St. Erth by car, this was a good location. Even by bus one could have reached most of these destinations because of the location on the bus route between St. Ives and Penzance. Relaxing at home is also lovely in the quiet garden and on the surrounding footpaths.

Chris is a very helpful and fair landlord. When we accidentally locked ourselves out he could arrange to get us back in within only 15 minutes!

What we loved:
- Good location
- Friendly landlord
- Rural atmosphere
- Beautiful garden (tennis game available)
- Spacious parking (but gravel ground)

Disadvantages:
- No WLAN, poor O2 mobile network
- Not perfect for small children because of steep stairs and narrow edges

We had a really comfortable holiday there. The cottage is very well equipped - even logs provided for an effective fire on cold evenings. The kitchen is especially well stocked with everything one could need. Highly recommended

The cottage was clean, warm, well maintained and comfortable. The flowers and biscuits were a nice welcoming gesture. Despite being fairly near to a main road, the cottage is in a quiet area, especially at night. Even sitting in the garden, noise from the traffic is barely noticeable. Cottage is ideally situated for visiting Marazion, Sennon Cove, St Just, Heligan and the Lizard Point. For birdwatchers the RSPB reserve at Marazion is good, we saw 2 bitterns. For gardeners, a visit to the Hardy Exotic plants just up the road is well worth it. 2 good patchwork shops in Marizon and St Just, and a good bead shop in Hayle and St Ives. We would recommend it.

This is a very comfortable and very well equipped cottage in a quiet location. It's the perfect base to explore West Cornwall, but a car is essential to get to all the wonderful coves and beaches and the best of the Cornish countryside. If you want be within close walking distance of beaches, shops and pubs, it is probably not for you, but we found it a perfect place to rest and recuperate after a long day out.

Whitecross is a small hamlet midway between the north and south coast of Cornwall at the narrowest part. Close to St Ives with the Tate Gallery and Leach Pottery, Penzance with its boat link to the Scilly Isles, Marazion with St Michael's Mount, and Hayle with 'three miles of golden sands'. Up the lane is Trencrom Hill with its ancient hill fort and magnificent views over the whole of West Cornwall. Within a few miles is the north coast and inland the tin mining centre of Camborne and Redruth. The Lizard Peninsula is a short drive away. The Penwith Peninsula has Land's End, Sennen (surfing), Zennor, Botallack and Minack Theatre. Penwith has the highest concentration of Neolithic sites in Europe, including monuments at The Merry Maidens, Lanyon Quoit, Chûn Quoit and an Iron Age village at Chysauster. The Eden Project is about an hour drive away. The cathedral city of Truro is about 30 minutes away with its cobbled streets and stores.
