Lovely well kept and thoroughly clean property

  • 5 of 5

We have been renting cottages for holidays for about 15 years now which roughly equates to 30 cottages as we always like staying two different places during the fortnight. I have to say that this was the best we have ever had. Modern and well equipped, thoroughly clean and everything you need was supplied. We also got a cream tea, milk and a bottle of wine! such nice thoughtful touches. Added to all this the location is perfect for all areas of the town and across the road from the sea front. The owner even allows pets and out two labradoodles really enjoyed the holiday. Your own parking space also and very nice neighbors you couldnt ask for anything more. We have never booked the same cottage twice, we have booked this one already for 2017!

Well done to the owners and thank you for providing such lovely accomodation.

Very clean and comfortable and would stay again

  • 5 of 5

Located in the west of the town of Penzance, a short stop from Newlyn, this lovely cottage is easy to find and everything we needed for a short break. Its a couple of streets back from the front and quiet (apart from the gulls!). Its off a courtyard with parking outside, although the archway into the courtyard is quite tight for large vehicles. Everything went smoothly with the proprietor who always responded immediately to our questions. The cottage is open plan downstairs with a fairly well-equipped kitchen, dining table and chairs, and two sofas in the lounge end with a TV and fire. Upstairs is a large double room (comfortable bed for us but we needed an extra pillow each) and plenty of clothes space. There is a clean bathroom with bath and shower (soft water, moderate pressure) and then a twin room. There is a lovely skylight making it light and airy. Outside is a small seating area with a table and chairs that catches all the afternoon sun. The cottage was very clean, comfortable and well provided for.

It was perfect for our stay, with the lovely Morrab Park less than 2 minutes away - I always found something new there, and a few hundred yards up the hill is the bigger Penlee Park, great for giving the dogs a run (a large area towards the western end). Don't forget your doggy bags, most owners are responsible. We ate out at Blacks in Chapel Street (very good), a short drive to The Old Coastguard in Mousehole (very, very good), and The Shore at the top of town (oh my word, this place is amazing - the best meal I have ever had in Cornwall).

A lovely week and we would recommend it and stay here again.

Just superb!

  • 5 of 5

Chough Cottage is an absolute gem. It has been beautifully refurbished, is spacious and light with the added benefit of being located in a delightful close only a couple of minutes from the beach. With its allocated parking space and little sun trap front garden it really is the most idyllic holiday property. Can't recommend too highly

Fantastic spot for a lovely holiday

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four stayed for a long weekend getaway. This cottage fit us perfectly, had everything we needed and wanted, and was located in an ideal location for exploring on foot or by vehicle. This rental is probably our best HomeAway rental to date and Mary was very easy to work with. We'd love to go back to Cornwall for another vacation and I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. Thank you Mary! We had a wonderful visit.

What a hidden gem! As others have said, surprisingly spacious, beautifully decorated, and extremely clean! Very well located for beach walks or popping into town. And, next to Morrab Tropical Gardens which are beautiful (unfortunately it rained for our entire stay so I didn't get to fully appreciate them!). Nice little touches like the dog towel in the porch and the bottle of wine and cream tea which was very welcome after a long 6 hour drive down.

We will definitely stay again :) Thank you.

My only comment to future renters would be that if you drive a massive car like me (7 seater) - the entrance to the car parking is rather tight - make sure someone sees you in, and definitely reverse out!

Lovely cottage, great location!

  • 5 of 5

Surprisingly spacious property, good size rooms. Clean and tidy with dishwasher, internet, tv etc.

Great location right near the seafront, with reserved parking for a car right outside if needed.

Loved it and would go back.

Also greatly appreciated the scones / cream tea!

Perfectly situated for exploring the Land's End peninsula. Many stunning beaches are only a short drive away and Penzance prom only 2 minutes walk. The town centre is only 5 minutes walk with its many restaurants and cafes, art galleries and quaint shops. Morrab Gardens, a sub tropical gem is around the corner and the lovely Penlee Park with tennis courts and an open air theatre is also nearby. Penlee House gallery and museum has many Newlyn School paintings and Newlyn copper on display and an excellent café.

The area has abundant coastal and country walks and for the more adventurous there are plenty of water sports from surfing and sailing to kayaking.

National Trust properties nearby include St Michael's Mount, Trengwainton and Godolphin House.

St Ives is 9 miles away with it's beautiful light, narrow streets and lovely beaches as well as the Tate. Take the scenic train journey from St Erth to avoid the parking problems.

The Minack open-air theatre at Porthcurno is worth a visit at any time of year. There are performances from May to September and you can visit the theatre and its exhibition all year round. The Telegraph Museum at Porthcurno gives a fascinating insight into early transatlantic communication methods.

Newlyn is home to Cornwall's largest fishing fleet and to Jelbert's ice cream - a local favourite!

Further afield there is the Eden Project, Lost Gardens of Heligan, Trelissick, Trebah , Glendurgan, Lanhydrock and Trerice as well as attractions for children such as Flambards, Paradise Park and the Cornish Seal Sanctuary. Geevor Tin Mine and The National Maritime Museum give an insight into Cornwall's past.
