What makes this cottage unique

The views from this cottage are breathtaking.

Lying in bed and looking out at the ocean is like looking at an ever changing oil painting.

Set in one of the most unspoilt corners of Cornwall it is surrounded by history.

It is a place where you feel how much stronger nature is then man.

At night the stars shine bright, by day the bird life fills the skies.

It is truly one of the most magical and energetically restorative places I have ever experienced.

This is a lovely cottage, it's in a great location with fantastic views.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is a typical Cornish cottage and was a joy to stay at. Very comfortable and everything you need to enjoy a fantastic holiday. We love going on long walks and the cottage is close to the coastal footpaths. There are a lot of interesting places to look, Geevor mine/museum is a must and is just next door, the Telegraph/theatre at Porthcurno and not to forget Lands End. We incorporated many of our trips with walks around national trust, coastal and public path ways and this enabled us to see a lot of historical interesting places. The cottage isn't right next to a beach but there are some beautiful beaches in close proximity, such as Sennen Cove, Porthcurno and St Ives.

In all, we had a great holiday and would recommend the cottage for anybody who loves walks and seeing places of historical interest. We had a mixture of weather when we were here but it couldn't do anything to stop us enjoying a wonderful holiday, in a lovely cottage, in our favourite place Cornwall.

nice cosy cottage with great views.

  • 4 of 5

Cottage was easy to find with instructions,ample parking and a clean cosy place for a week walking the coast path.

Two pubs, very useful Cost cutter and brilliant chip shop all within walking distant.

A very comfortable, pleasant week although the Aga oven is a little challenging!

Short, but wonderful stay at Pennyfarthing Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at the cottage on a black, stormy night but the directions from a Helen were great. Pennyfarthing was welcoming with a toasty Aga, which we learned to use with a helpful book right next to it. And the next morning, while still very windy, we woke to an AMAZING view from the bed! The cottage is a great location—great walks along the coastal path, and an easy walk to get some groceries or a pint at the North Inn. Our only recommendation to Helen is to have all the appliance manuals booked together in a prominent location in case needed. Wonderful stay-hope to return again!
