This is a magic little place.

My third stay at Cornwall and the first time during the winter months. It is cosy, comfortable and the beach is beautiful in winter.

My dog feels at home there and being able to bring her along is such a bonus.

Perfect family holiday Cottage.

  • 5 of 5

Our 5 night stay at Cornwall Cottage was the perfect family get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Our two young children loved playing outside in the safe and secure yards whilst we enjoyed the BBQ amongst the peaceful atmosphere. The cottage was very well equipped and very comfortable both day and night. We had need of nothing. Lots of light, well decorated, central kitchen and a front balcony to sit, eat and drink all made for a great relaxing stay for the family. Then there is the beach. Only a few steps away for the perfect morning swim, midday sandcastle building with the kids and then the evening stroll to watch the sun set. Overall a great place to stay in a great quiet location. We had a fantastic time (kids didn’t want to leave) and look forward to coming back.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and i am pleased you enjoyed your stay. i am sorry about the door not closing and thank you for the bin. We did notice the bin when the house was cleaned. I am surprised about the fridge because the cleaner is very thorough. The property is in a good location and very comfortable.

Fantastic Beach House!

  • 5 of 5

We really did have the best time at Cornwall Cottage! It was so clean and had every thing supplied you could ask for. It is beautifully decorated-the ultimate beach house! The hot outdoor shower was just an added bonus to wash sand off our feet from the beach-which is literally just outside the front gate.The garden was gorgeous and the backyard is massive! We did not want to leave! Thanks!
