Guestbook comments from the owner

Little Trenoweth is a comfortable, well furnished, delighful cottage, and if we get the chance to visit England again we will certainly stay at Little Trenoweth" again. It is convenient being centrally situated in the village. The owners were really helpful, and we enjoyed the Cornish cream tea on arrival.

Just stunning!

  • 4 of 5

Walking up to the house was almost surreal as it is so exactly how it appears in the photos, rather than the usual wide angles and other photography cheats. It really is a perfect picture-postcard image that greets you, with the gorgeous cottage and stunning front garden. Inside was surprisingly spacious as we assumed the cute beamed cottage would be small but perfectly formed, yet as a fairly tall couple we barely had to duck at all! The lounge and dining area were lovely too and walking through there's a large well-equipped kitchen wth everything you could need. The layout to the bathroom and toilet was a bit unusual with them being up a few stairs then back down a few to the side to a good sized bathroom with a power shower, then upstairs the bedrooms were all beautifully decorated in their own colours with very comfy pillows and mattresses. It would have been nice to have the double room rearranged to allow for a longer bed so my 6'1" husband didn't have to sleep with his feet off the end but the positioning did allow for a straight ahead stunning view out to the lighthouse. The air in the cottage is a little damp but perhaps that would have been resolved had we put the heating up a little for part of each day. That would've felt like an unnecessary expense for the owners though so maybe something to consider for the lovely Lisa. Both the front garden and the shady courtyard are a great size and have beautiful flowers everywhere as well as furniture for outdoor dining/sunbathing. The area itself is heavenly and the nearby Kynance Cove at low tide is my new favourite place on Earth. Overall a lovely holiday in a practically perfect cottage, surrounded by gorgeous coastal walks. Highly recommended! :)

Very pleasant, peaceful and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is absolutely perfect for a family of five. The cottage has everything you need or even more. Huge kitchen, modern and fully equipped. Bedrooms are well done and big enough. We really enjoyed our stay from the first to the last minute. The owner is really taking care. We exchanged lots of mails upfront and she was helpfull in any meanings.

Worthwhile to stay. No bad surprises (except you expect serving personal as well. That doesn't come along with standard booking).

Fabulous Cottage in Great Location

  • 4 of 5

Little Trenoweth is a lovely Thatched Cottage and was perfect for our family of 6 for a week's stay. It is very comfortably furnished with leather sofas in the lounge and very good beds - we'd go as far as to say that the double bed was the best holiday cottage bed we've ever slept in! The kitchen is extremely well kitted out with everything you need to cook proper meals. There is much more outside space than we expected which was a nice surprise. The cottage was clean and well presented and we loved the view from the top bedrooms towards the lighthouse. The location was also really great - right in the town and most importantly very close to The Witchball pub where we ate many tasty meals. The owner was very helpful and prompt in helping us with issues (our car - not the cottage!). We'd highly recommend this cottage and this beautiful part of Cornwall.

Cottage is chocolate box perfect

  • 5 of 5

The property had recently been modernised inside with new kitchen & bathroom, which, made the stay more enjoyable. The cottage itself is full of character & charm, which fits a property of this age. There is a superb front garden as well as a large back courtyard/garden, which was fantastic for "Charlie", my Cocker Spaniel, to explore. We were there to walk the coastal paths of the Lizard Peninsula & had a great week of weather to accompany us. In addition to the stunning local scenery & excellent coastal walks, it was always good to return to such a beautiful cottage in serene surroundings & relax in a steaming hot bath. A good sleep was had every night in the well decorated & comfortable bedroom, with stunning views of the fields & Lizard Lighthouse. The property is very well equipped to a high standard & we felt at home from the time we walked through the front door. Our favourite places which "Charlie" was well photographed in were Lizard Point, Kynance Cove, Cadgwith, Poltesco, Porthleven, St Michael's Mount. We also found the local nature reserve & renovated Windmill, just outside the village of interest due to it's history & local wildlife. Overall, a fantastic cottage as a base to explore the Lizard in all it's glory & dog friendly. Thanks Lisa & Lorraine for the unique experience.

Brillian, Fantastic, Top Class Accommodation

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic and memorable time at The Lizard/Southerly Thatched Cottage. Lisa and family are brilliant, communicative hosts and they made they're pride and joy ours. Beautiful setting, gorgeous, well equipped and extremely comfortable accommodation. We spent Christmas here with family and not only did we have everything we could have possibly wanted Lisa went to great lengths in putting up a tree and decorations. I want to thank you so much for making Christmas 2015 so special and so easy for us all to just pull up, walk straight in and feel right at home. We will be back in the future.

All the very best Gill Parkins (Hertfordshire)

The Lizard Peninsula is unique. Stunningly beautiful at any time of the year, there is nowhere quite like it anywhere else in Britain.

The rocks and cliffs of the coastline offer shelter to the tiny fishing villages huddled into their coves.

The Lizard Peninsula has been designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It is recognised as being of international botanical importance - and here you can find 15 of Britain’s rarest plants!

The beaches in the area are simply among the finest in western Europe. A combination of crystal clear Gulf Stream waters and pale sand gives beaches a 'tropical' quality usually only glimpsed within the pages of exotic travel brochures. There are wide open beaches and sand dunes where the distance stays out of reach; intimate secluded beaches known only to a few locals; sparkling rock pools – the stuff of childhood memories. Golf courses all within driving distances

Golf: There are some lovely golf courses around the Lizard. Mullion gold course, and Praa Sands are just two. Please email if you need more info
