Good location for exploring

  • 5 of 5

A clean homely house in a quiet area of Penzance. Easy walking distance to shops, places to eat and the sea. The parking space is tight but it was conveniently located. We explored most of the south west of Cornwall from the house and everything was within 30 minutes drive. The beds were really comfy and the bed linen very crisp and soft. All creature comforts were included although a bit more crockery and cutlery would have been good. Overall a great base for visiting the surrounding area and getting to know Penzance. I would happily recommend the house to friends.

Lovely property, so clean, everything we needed, great to have parking, a really restful property.

  • 5 of 5

Such a lovely property, a real gem. Beautifully clean and decorated and furnished in a very restful way. Arrived to scones, jam and clotted cream, milk, bottle of wine and flowers - a lovely touch and the scones were really appreciated after a long journey. Great location for exploring the peninsular. We hired bicycle in Penzance and cycled to Mousehole, caught the train to St Ives and walked along the seafront to Marzion to get to St Michaels Mount. Would recommend a visit to Cape Cornwall, very dramatic. There are plenty of good places to eat within walking distance of the cottage. The final touch was we had fantastic weather. Thank you Mary for all the nice extras.

Wonderful cottage with the perfect location in Penzance

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the cottage - well situated close to all the amenities and tucked away in a quiet location off the road. It was convenient to have an allocated parking space right infront and made our days out from Penzance much easier. The neighbours were also very friendly! The cottage was extremely clean and presentable, and much more spacious upstairs than we expected. It was very well equipped with everything we needed during our stay and felt like an ideal little home away from home. We were all very comfortable there and would definitely go back and stay again!

Lovely cottage

  • 4 of 5

The welcome package of fresh scones, jam, clotted cream and coffee fixings was very appreciated. A well fitted out little cottage for two couples. We especially enjoyed the patio area after our long walks during the day. Parking, as advertised is tight and the guys enjoyed the challenge of tucking the car into the designated spot. There is a bit of a musty smell coming from the sink? which is the only thing keeping this from being a 5 star but it wouldn't stop us from returning!
