About the Owner

.We bought Cormorant in 2005 from a very old and dear friend. Being a real eccentric he loved it in its very rough untouched state. When we bought it we had to do a major renovation as there was no bathroom or loo and not even running water. We were thrilled to own it as many years previously it had been owned by Robert's relatives who were fishermen working in the Cove. For us it meant a lot. We were therefore very keen to keep as many of the traditional features as possible whilst modernising the kitchen and making space for a bathroom. We think it is a wonderful property and we hope you will too.

A wonderful rural retreat.

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this property many times now and it has become our annual escape; somewhere to recharge our batteries. We stayed for three weeks in September and as usual were not disappointed (except when we had to leave!!)

We are always greeted so very warmly by Robert and Kay who go out of their way to make our stay as perfect as possible and it is like seeing old friends. Robert's gifts of home grown vegetables though out our stay is always such a treat and very much appreciated. Nothing seems too much trouble.

The house was beautifully clean with fresh flowers and and a tea tray laid out for our arrival. The valley location is stunning with views of the spectacular garden and across to rolling countryside from every window.

We see lots of birds and wild life here and love watching the bird formations overhead and the array of stars visible due to such little light pollution.

Despite the detached, rural setting it is only minutes by car to Sennen, Mousehole, Lands End, St Just, Penzance and the Minnack Theatre.

This year we walked along the coastal path in glorious sun shine to an afternoon show at the Minnack. A wonderful performance of Frankenstein just yards from the waves! A day to remember.

The local pub for decent pub meals, is just a couple of minutes walk away and full of character, Treen village is like stepping in to a 'Constable' painting and the nearest beach is probably the most beautiful we have found anywhere. We have also done lovely walks through woods and fields directly from the back of the house and love the stream-side walk to Penberth Cove ten minutes away from the house.

Some family joined us for a few days this year also and they totally fell in love with the place and now understand why we keep returning. We had a lovely celebration meal at The Gurnards Head near Zennor and it was worth the slow winding drive back to St Cyrs in fog!!

Thanks again Robert and Kay for sharing this lovely tranquil home- from- home with us and see you next year!

Another perfect stay

  • 5 of 5

This was our second long weekend break at St Cyrs and once again was perfect. Lovely to be welcomed with fresh flowers and little essentials such as milk, tea and coffee all set out for us - as well as good wi-fi!

Also great to return to a plentiful supply of firewood every night for a blazing log fire after a long day's walking.

Next time we will take up Robert's kind offer of a lift to the coast path so that we can do the Zennor-St Ives walk - that's just all part of the service, apparently.

A really relaxing time in a great house with owners on-hand but discreet - we definitely hope to be back later in the year. Highly recommended.

Perfect property and setting to explore the area

  • 5 of 5

Lovely cottage with everything you would need for a self-catering stay. Wonderful views of the hills and a short drive to the sea. Short walk to the local pub and spectacular coastal path to Logan Rock. Handy for Penzance, St Ives and the beautiful local villages such as Lomorna and Mousehole.

Beautifully laid out garden with space to sit out and eat or just relax. Log burner for chilly evenings and a very well-equipped kitchen/dining space. Property very clean throughout with owners next door if you have any queries.

We certainly plan to return for another visit soon.

We were made to feel very welcome by the owners of this beautiful house. They were very friendly and helpful, giving us local information and making sure we had everything we needed. The house itself is in a great location, it is clean and comfortable with a lovely outside space and beautiful garden. It is situated near several areas of outstanding natural beauty, with great beaches, cliff walks, historic sites, an outdoor theater and much more. We had a wonderful time staying there and would highly recommend it to anyone.....thanks again

Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

I can honestly commend this property. If you like spending time at the beach or walking with beautiful views, then this property is ideally situated - the nearest beach is just 15 minutes walk away; it necessitates a scramble down a rocky footpath which is fun and well worth it, the beach being very pretty, sandy, with caves. There are other beaches in easy reach, with the well-known Sennen Cove located a sort drive away. We spent a lovely evening at the Minack Theatre just nearby. The pub round the corner was welcoming and served good beer. The neighbouring farm sold eggs,and there was a nearby postbox for our postcards.

The house itself is clean and comfortable, with all mod cons as indicated. The owners were helpful and welcoming. There was off-road parking. The gardens are a labour of love and I will miss looking out over them. There is a lovely wood-burning stove in the living-room for when the evening is chilly. As a family of five we found there was plenty of crockery and space, although twin beds in the second bedroom would have been better than a double offering greater flexibility.
