Lots of beautiful walks nearby, great cafe in St Just (Dog and Rabbit, yummy breakfasts), clean, comfy and warm with everything I needed. Sunsets across the atlantic too, just a few minutes walk away down a country lane and enough fresh air and wind to blow away my city cobwebs. A real treat and I hope one day to revisit. I would definitely recommend the cottage to friends and family.

Perfectly positioned to explore the beauty of the Penwith coast and its many coastal path walks and surrounding historical towns and villages - and of course the incredible Minack Theatre. We enjoyed good pub food in many of the local pubs. The AGA was the most amazing and comforting part of the cottage. So wonderful to come down to its warmth every morning and again at the end of the day - virtually instant boiling the kettle! Our only hesitation in giving this near perfect cottage 5 stars is that as international travellers it is not convenient to have to bring our own towels. I would recommend this cottage to my family and friends in Australia who love to travel - but I know this one small thing would be a big negative. Helen is easy to communicate with and the cottage was exactly as described - we did come equipped with towels! Would definitely love to revisit sometime in the future.

The house has 3 good-sized bedrooms and plenty of space to spread ourselves. The garden is the icing on the cake with views of the valley and the cove below to die for. Access to the coastal path is from the door and it is a short walk (uphill) to shops at St Just and so we did not need to use the car except for longer sight-seeing trips. The walk to Sennen Cove was lovely and the bus back to St Just was great. The sitting room could do with a new sofa and the breakfast room some soft furnishing. Too much equipment in the kitchen! Overall a fantastic place to stay.
