About the Owner

We are both keen walkers, and love the Cornish coastline with its easily traversed coastal paths and never ending supply of beautiful coves and majestic mining heritage.

We fell in love with Botallack and Little Ferriby many years ago, and were lucky to purchase the property in 2012 and have spent many a happy day enjoying the quiet ambience of the village, the friendly neighbours, the numerous local walks, and the homely village pub.

Perfect holiday hideaway!

  • 5 of 5

Best equipped cottage we have ever stayed in and very clean too.

Loads to do in the area and mins from the coast path. We had a glorious week weather wise and saw Poldark being filmed on the mines just around the corner.

Great holiday, for us and the dogs.

Credit to the owner. We will be booking again!

A little gem!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful week in Little Ferriby at the end of May. We are a family of six plus a Great Dane and we all fitted very comfortably into this cosy little cottage. Much thought has been put into equipping the cottage for guests with everything you could possibly need. We would also agree with other reviewers that it was spotlessly clean which is very important to us. And we really appreciated the cream tea and fresh flowers on our arrival - a lovely touch! The front garden is completely enclosed and our dog loved sitting by the wall watching the world go by! The stunning SW coastal path is a ten minute walk away and there are some fascinating mine ruins to explore including the arsenic labyrinth which our kids played hide and seek in for hours. Botallack itself is ideally situated for exploring the wild and beautiful Land's End peninsula and is convenient for Land's End, Sennen Cove, the Minack theatre, Geevor Tin Mine and St. Michael's Mount. We were very taken with both the cottage and the area and would not hesitate to recommend either to our family and friends and we very much hope to return again one day.

Perfect Escape

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent a long weekend at Little Ferriby - it proved to be the perfect getaway spot. The cottage was cosy and has everything we needed. It was clean, comfortable & well presented. The fresh flowers & cream tea supplies were a lovely extra touch!

In terms of location, it couldn't have been better. A very short walk to a friendly local pub, and to the cliffs & mines on the coast. Also, a short drive from other nice places (St Ives/Lands End/Mousehole) worth a visit.

We'd definitely come again, and happily recommend it to friends & family.

Little Ferriby, Perfect Retreat

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is spacious and yet maintains its captivating character, every effort has been made to make it the perfect holiday home. The outside of Little ferriby has a beautiful garden with outdoor dining giving a great first impression. Inside there is ample leaving space, firstly the kitchen with all mod coms including a large dining table and a superb cooker/oven. The living room is a gem, beautiful open fireplace and wonderful furnishings. The bedrooms are charming, immaculatly clean and the beds very comfortable.

In summary, a wonderful week's break in this magical part of Cornwall. The location is second to none for long or short walks, historical sightseeing with a reputable pub next door. Would suit anyone looking for peace in the country, who loves the great outdoors and has a passion for cottages. A perfect holiday home.

Brilliant location

  • 4 of 5

A lovely cottage in a location that meant seeing what South Cornwall had to offer was very easy. The welcome cream tea was lovely and just what we needed after our journey. The cottage was clean and had everything you could need. We had an issue with the water tap in the kitchen sink (very slow running) but it did not impact our enjoyment. The garden is enclosed but the garden waste that had accumulated from fallen leaves by the garden wall meant that we had to keep an eye to ensure the dog did not escape over the wall - luckily the drop the other side seemed to put her off!

I would not hesitate to stay here again and have recommended it to various friends and family.

Owner's Response: It's always good to receive feedback from our guests and we're pleased that you enjoyed your stay in Little Ferriby. The temporary issue of a slow running tap was quickly resolved by replacing a faulty washer. The enclosed garden is maintained to a high standard and we have recently installed a compost bin for garden waste etc

Little Ferriby

  • 5 of 5

A delightful cottage fully equipped with all we could need for a holiday away. Really well cared for and exceptionally clean. Great touches with a welcome pack of fresh flowers, scones, jam, cream and milk! Ideally situated, with the costal path being steps away as is the local pub. Also only four miles away from Sennen Cove so ideally situated for young families.
