About John and Marie Prince

We live in Lichfield in South Staffordshire and have two boys (aged 13 and 11) and have been enjoying family holidays to Cornwall for 13 years!

John and Marie Prince purchased this cottage in 2004

Why John and Marie Prince chose Truro & Falmouth area

Falmouth and the area around it has been a favourite holiday destination for us for many years. When our oldest was born we had the opportunity to buy a cottage at Pendra Loweth and have spent many, many fantastic holidays there as a family. The boys never tire of returning and always find new things to do or places to explore.

What makes this cottage unique

From Pebble Cottage you have everything you need close at hand but returning to the tranquility of Pendra Loweth makes relaxing so easy.

There are numerous places within easy reach as the roads that serve Falmouth provide excellent links to the Helston River, the Lizard Peninsula, Porthleven, Truro and many more interesting towns, villages and beaches.

Fabulous cottage in a peaceful and idyllic setting

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in Pebble Cottage, which is set amongst beautiful gardens in a peaceful setting. The cottage was well equipped and the rooms spacious, airy and very well presented. The outdoor furniture was a bonus to sit and relax in the evenings and we enjoyed a game of tennis at the court on the site. Coastal walks, the local beach and cafes and restaurants are a short walk away or a couple of minutes by car.

A great cottage superbly located to get out and about in this beautiful area of Cornwall.

Lovely stay in Falmouth

  • 4 of 5

We chose Falmouth as our base for our one week trip to Cornwall. We found the cottage well maintained, well equipped and in good condition. We had no issues at all during our stay. The owners were informative and dealt with any queries we had prior arriving. Overall we had a lovely stay and would definitely recommend.

A cottage to love!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Pebble cottage. The cottage has absolutely everything you need and it was well maintained. It is easy to reach beaches by foot but with two rather wild boys we used the car most of the times, and by car there are som many things to see in and around Falmouth. Our boys really appreciated the superb wi-fi in the cottage and I have to thank John for good information and service from start to finish. If we ever leave Sweden again for Cornwall we would definitly love to stay in Pebble cottage again.

Beautiful retreat

  • 5 of 5

Im sat on my last night in pebble cottage and decided to write my review now!!

This is a fantastc house with everything and more you could ever need.

It is better then any modern hotel ive stayed at and the deco is simple and luxiourious at the same time, The beds are heaven and the towels are so fluffy,

I can't thank John enough for how easy he made our booking and stay!!

I could recommend so many things in the area Maenporth is a 20 minute walk from pebble beach along a main road and is a bit hairy at some points but the walk is well worth it as the beach is amazing!!

Fish and chips in rick steins is great , St Mawes by the ferry is wow!!!

Pendra Loweth is so friendly everyone is so chatty and the bar is great prices!!

What can i say we will with out a doubt be returning next year!!!!!

please dont hesitate to make a booking its wonderful!!!
