“Carols & Candlelight”
Reviewed 17 January 2014 for a stay in December 2013

We walked down the little walkway and the little cottage was glowing, as we opened the front door we were welcomed by christmas carols and a wave of warmth. I loved this little cottage from this point on.

Practicalities - two course meal and bottle of wine on arrival. Brilliant, no need to think about where we're going to eat.
The whole cottage is equipped with everything you need for your stay, from toiletries to books & games and everything you could ever want in the kitchen to washing machine and dryer. All you have to do is unpack and relax.

We had dogs with us so the beaches were a massive bonus. Up early to get them out in morning and then a good walk when the tide was out. The dogs were tired by the end of the day and we could relax and watch the sun set over St Michael's Mount.

Everything you read about this little cottage is true and more. We truly had a magical week over Christmas and hardly even switched the telly on :-)

We really enjoyed our stay at Cockershell cottage. The view was amazing and the bathroom was complete luxury for us. The standard of the accommodation was excellent. The added extras of a cooked meal on arrival and little touches such as tin foil, books to read and DVDs to watch made the stay very comfortable. We would love to return!

“An excellent few days break at Cockleshell Cottage.”
Reviewed 3 November 2013 for a stay in October 2013

person found this review helpful

Cockleshell Cottage is beautiful. Well kept, clean and very comfortable. Sue, the owner is easy going and extremely thoughtful. We arrived to a lovely meal ready to put in the oven that evening (very unexpected) and a rack of wine from which we could trustingly use a bottle and replace it. The same with a shelf full of books. Breakfast on the patio which is right on the sea wall, is delightful. The view from the cottage to St. Michael's Mount is outstanding. So is across the bay at night, to towns lit up. No need for a television. Can't wait to go back.

“What a lovely place to stay.”
Reviewed 12 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013

person found this review helpful

Cockleshell Cottage was a lovely place to stay. Everyone raves about the views from there and each statement is true. To look out of the upstairs lounge large wall windows, or sit on the patio with a drink in your hand as to be moments to treasure and put away in the memory bank. The house is beautifully furbished with every modern appliance you could wish for. There is a wonderful bathroom with a jacuzzie and a large rain fall shower , a four poster bad, and a complete library of books and music to cover anyone's tastes. A complete rack of wine was there for you to use on trust ( take one out one back)!!
There was lovely surprises of a dinner prepared and ready to cook when you arrived, not to mention the cream tea to take home with you.
As if that was not enough, we met the owner Sue who brought us a little gift on our wedding anniversary that happened to fall on the Thursday of that week.......how nice was that? and much appreciated. Our neighbours too were a delight and asked us in to share a drink, and even gave my husband a red rose from their beautiful flowers to give to me.

I often stayed at "home" and read, wrapped up in the soft cuddly white dressing gown provided, while my husband walk part of the coastal path. In the evenings we had a wander to the local inns but the highlight has to be a visit to Bens Cornish Kitchen. A superb meal there and the magician in the kitchen was a wizard at using different herbs and spices to make the delectable meals we tried.
Go and visit Cockleshells, you will not be disappointed, it has to be the best self catering cottage we have ever stayed in!!

Liked best: Obviously the views and the overall perfect condition of Cockleshells
Liked least: The stairs, but that is because I am getting older and need to look for something all on one level.

We arrived in a dreamhouse ! A place you allways want to return once you have been there ! In a rather busy place (Marazion) you arrive in a cottage where you only hear the seagulls and the sea - the views you can look at all day, every day - a great personnal meal is waiting for you - Sue the hostess foresees everything - even flowers, and cream tea ! We hope to be back !
