A 2015 Review powered by TripAdvisor “Brilliant for a quiet and restful break"

My wife and I stayed at Serpentine Cottage in the middle of Sept this year. The accommodation was excellent. It was clean and warm with everything we needed on hand. An excellent base for visiting South Cornwall.

Chalet Review- powered by TripAdvisor Jan 2015

“Chalet with fantastic location" and view" right on the cliff top overlooking the beach and sea. Less than 1 mile to the town of Hayle. Open plan living and sleeping, waking up for that view is breath taking, very well equipped

sleeps 2 + 1 child in small bedroom, well worth paying for, if you want a quiet place just to relax, soak up the sun and do nothing this Is the place for you, unless you don't like the sight and sound of rolling waves.

Review by Trip Adviser

"Serpentine Cottage"

This cottage is perfect for a week away with a partner. The décor is a little old fashioned but it has everything you need including a wood burner and a very comfy rocking chair!

Very pretty location. Close to town and local amenities, but very quiet. Also, not far from St.Ives, Penance, Lands’ End etc. so lots to do.

We would definitely recommend.

Ruhe, Grün und beeindruckender Atlantik

  • 4 of 5

Das Serpentine Cottage ist ein aus dem 18. Jahrhundert stammendes uriges Gebäude, das aufgrund seiner vollständigen Ausstattung für 2 Personen über zwei Etagen alles für einen angenehmen Aufenthalt bietet.

Wichtig ist jedoch, dass ohne Auto nichts geht. Man lebt ausserhalb und mit dem Wagen ist man in 10 Min. in Hayle oder an verschiedenen Stränden, die wirklich beeindruckend sind. In Hayle gibt es tolle Selbstversorgungsmöglichleiten (ASDA, Marks und Spencer, Lidl) aber auch einige Restaurants.

Die Unterkunft war sehr sauber. Die Vermieter sind irisch-deutsch. Sie sind total nett, zuvorkommend lustig und kommunikativ.
