“Quiet location, minutes from beach”

The cottage is in a lovely location, situated approximately 10 minutes' walk from the beach in Gwithian, providing peace and quiet. The owners are lovely and easy to get hold of should you need, and we found them very helpful over email before our stay.

The cottage has every amenity you could need, including some games and books and that all important dishwasher. Wifi is available in the cottage, which can be useful since there is no phone signal.

We wanted somewhere dog friendly, and we're glad to report that the cottage was nice and clean, with no 'dog smell' or hairs. The enclosed garden was ideal for four legged friends, and little ones. One thing to note, if you're planning on bringing your dog, is that there are restrictions on taking dogs onto the beach in Gwithian. The nearest all-day dog friendly beach is about 20 minutes' walk to St Peter Point. Be aware also that the steps down the cliff to the beach at St Peter Point have been permanently closed (although we saw many people still using them).

Gwithin has a handful of excellent cafes and restaurants, plus a pub and surf hire.
We are considering a return visit already!

“Fabulous location, lovely cottage”
Reviewed 24 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

The cottage has everything you could want! Jill, the owner made us very welcome. Our boys love to surf and Jill arranged for us to have facilities for them to be able to wash their wetsuits. Just a short walk down the lane and a footpath alongside a care home takes you to the sandunes and beach! From the cottage you can hear the waves rolling onto the shore!, you couldn't ask for a better location! Internet was a little slow at times but we managed and you can get a telephone signal from the main bedroom upstairs, so not a problem. We've booked to return in September!

“Relaxing country/sea retreat with home comforts”
Reviewed 6 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We loved staying here! The house was very homely and spacious with a fully equipped kitchen, modern bathroom, dining room (with books and games), front room (with a Wii!) and two bedrooms. There was ample parking (well sign-posted too) and the cottage overlooks the sea at a short distance. It was lovely walking to the dunes and beach each day - it only took 5-10 mins. The cottage is in a great location too at equal driving distance from most towns. I would fully recommend this to anyone looking for a countryside or beach getaway. The town had two pubs (one by the beach), both with good food and reviews. The nearest supermarket is a short drive away. The owner was also there to meet us and she was excellent at replying by email. The only small criticism was a squeaky bed and it was a bit too short for my 6foot5 partner! But it was still v comfy. There was no phone reception but there was Wifi although this was also a bit intermittent, But we would love to return!

Fantastic cottage and excellent location. Very well equipped. Perfect for couples or families. The owner allows dogs which was brilliant for us, enclosed and secure garden.
