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.

Another lovely stay in Cornwall

  • 5 of 5

This was the second time we had stayed at this property. We love the cosy setting amongst the rugged West Cornwall cliffs and old mining ruins. The property gives easy access by car to many wonderful places and remains very close to our hearts. We will undoubtedly be looking to return again.

Beautiful accommodation with great view on the ocean

  • 5 of 5

We spent a perfect Cornwall holiday in Helens fantastic cottage with great views over the Atlantic Ocean. We have been travelling around Cornwall in our holidays many times. This is definitely the best accommodation we had so far. The AGA gives you a comfortable and cosy atmosphere and helps you cooking faster. The nicely furnished cottage fits perfectly into the Cornish landscape. We thank Helen for her good taste in decorating the rooms. We enjoyed every moment in this excellent holiday cottage. The opportunities to go trekking from this place are simply great. We really recommend a holiday in this beautiful cottage in Pendeen. Jörg and Inge from Germany
