A superb property

  • 5 of 5

The accommodation was stunning. The location is wonderful, very remote and peaceful. The quality of the facilities was second to none and it was beautifully clean which has been a problem in other places we have stayed in. I would give this 5 stars.

Exquisite views!

  • 5 of 5

The views from the living area in the cottage are simply breathtaking. The windows are large and all around - on one side you see out over the Bay, and on the other side you look out over beautiful green hills and pastures. The cottage was very comfortable and nicely appointed. Plenty of room for a family of four to spread out. Far enough away from Penzance to be away from it all and quite peaceful, but close enough for convenience too. Highly recommend!

Studio was set in a beautiful location and was very modern. All mod cons available within the studio inc dishwasher and washing machine. Rooms were spacious but cosy. Would definitely recommend to people and stay again.

Very nice and cosy:)

  • 5 of 5

I felt like at home.... the images don’t do the property justice because it looks better than in the pictures. Lovely view from the balcony. Clean and tidy throughout the studio, everything you need is there and ready for you to use. The sofas and beds are nice and comfortable. The studio is placed close to nearby towns and attractions, while still being far enough that you can sit back and relax as it’s peaceful and quiet. Definitely would recommend for you to come and stay as I would also gladly come back again. :)

A gem!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was scrupiously clean, warm and cosy.

The bed was big and very comfy, the sofas were equally comfy - we felt very at home

Parking was easy and the views simply spectacular !

A real unique little gem

Very peaceful. Lovely views

  • 4 of 5

Very nice property. Very peaceful and wonderful views of At Michaels Mount. Thankyou Peter. However, I was shocked by Owners Direct adding their fee of £80 for 5 night stay of which the actual owner of this property did not receive a penny. Felt like a Owners Direct UK rip off.

Owner's Response: We pitch the rental fees lower than we would wish so that this compensates for the agency fees but would prefer a simple transparent and inclusive price. Peter
