The cottage has been finished to a high spec and is really comfortable with everything you need. Our 16 month old had a great time running around the cottage and she really enjoyed bath time in the luxurious roll top bath. The surrounding area is lovely. We had BBQs with delicious fresh fish from Cadgwith, ate at the Cadgwith Cove Inn and cycled to Kynance Cove. There's lots to explore with the coastal path within easy access. I would thoroughly recommend Yellow Fish Cottage...just wish we could've stayed another week!

Good location, close to beech at Kennack Sands. Great accommodation, we loved the garden (which is all enclosed for those with dogs). We would certainly visit again.

The owners, Lawrence and Becky, were so friendly and acommodating and made sure we had everything we needed. The cottage was very spacious and suited our needs to a tee. The position of the cottage was ideal for exploring the areas around Mullion. The cottage was ideal for us as it is bungalow style, all on the ground floor. I would recommend this holiday cottage to anyone interested in exploring the Lizard, or going swimming or surfing on the nearby beaches. Denis and Angie Leicester
