Superb Cornish Thatch in a wonderful location.

  • 5 of 5

A charming thatched property, beautifully clean and well equipped, and situated within a very quiet and tranquil village. Yet still close to major towns and within walking distance to a beautiful sandy beach. The owners were so helpful and accommodating and they also provided information booklets to help plan our stay. I would definitely recommend this property and can't wait to return ourselves.

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect place to stay! We arrived after a very long journey to find a delicious cream tea waiting for us. What a great welcome. The cottage amazing and so well equipped you want for nothing. It was amazingly clean and tidy and incredibly spacious. There is a lovely garden which is quite a sun trap and lovely being able to sit and relax in after a day exploring the area.

The location is perfect for exploring the area. Beautiful Praa Sands just a few minutes drive away. Lots of information about the local attractions could be found in the cottage, together with maps. We travelled around the coast and found some most beautiful little harbours.

The whole process of booking the holiday was a little flawed as technology got in the way! However, the owners kept in touch and everything was sorted out quickly. It was so nice having that friendly communication with the owners, made us feel like friends! We were at the cottage for two blissful weeks and so met the housekeeper. What a lovely lady .. And nothing was too much trouble.

I would seriously recommend this perfect cottage for your holiday. I cannot think of anything negative to say! So don't delay, book today and you'll have a wonderful holiday!

Lovely detached cottage with delightful personal touches in quiet rural location, close to beaches.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was very clean & tidy & immediately upon entry felt like a home from home. The garden is a real delight - safe & contained for our toddler grandson. Furniture was very comfortable, with a good size TV in the living area. Both bathrooms were very clean indeed, with nice towels provided.

There were a number of nice personal touches throughout, that were delightful. Furnishings & decorations very tasteful & in keeping with the character of this old cottage.

The location was ideal for where we wanted to travel - 20 minutes north to St Ives & 5 minutes to Praa Sands.

Easy to find, just off the main road, but far enough to be secluded & quiet.

Highly recommended.

Thank you Sue & Dennis for sharing this very special home with us.

Family holiday

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was wonderful and really well equipped. There is plenty of room for everyone to spread out although we tended to find ourselves together in the main lounge. It is so convenient for the beach and just a really great spot to explore Cornwall.

I'm sure at some point we will return to Cornwall and would definitely stay at Larkspur again.

This area has the most stunning scenery and coastline. You can walk to Praa Sands from the cottage, with a mile of golden sandy beach, popular with surfers and in the summer you can have surf lessons on the beach. The famous St Michaels Mount is only 5 miles away. It's even less to the pretty fishing village of Porthleven, with its amazing range of cafes, pubs and restaurants serving anything from fast food to fine dining. To the north, St Ives is only 9 miles away, with the Tate Gallery & pretty beaches. To the west, you can visit the open air Minnack theatre, the picturesque village of Mousehole, and of course the famous Lands End and Sennen Cove, all a short drive from the cottage. In between, there are so many little coves and beaches to explore, such as Gunwalloe, Prussia Cove and Rinsey, and a range of walking, cycling or public transport options that will ensure you take every opportunity to enjoy this amazing part of the UK.
