“Memories are made of this....”
Reviewed 16 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Fabulous cottage had all the mod cons you could want.
Was lovely to have a meal waiting for us after a long drive down. All the little extras provided made this a 5* plus cottage to stay.
The views were amazing which made it very difficult to want to go out at all but once out their are lots of places to visit.

“Amazing view, superb hospitality by Sue.”
Reviewed 6 March 2016 for a stay in February 2016

Just had a week at the cottage, Sue, the owner has put loads of thought into this cottage, from all the things like the meal for when you arrive, the bottle of wine and all the other things you might have to go out and buy in a self catering property. We've stayed in lots of five star self catering places in Cornwall and this has probably got to be rated as the best, quiet, fantastic views, clean, well equipped, and a goody bag to bring home, no parking on site, but not a problem, permit only car park few hundred yards away, all in all like all the other reviews, couldn't be better, nothing negative.

“After 40+ years of visiting this part of Cornwall, this cottage ranks as the best yet!”
Reviewed 4 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

You chaps have hit upon the magic formula and used it to great effect when you converted a small fisherman's cottage into a great living and sleeping space, thus showcasing and enhancing the visitor's experience of the marvellous Mounts Bay!
We love this part of Cornwall and after 40+ years of visiting in all seasons, this ranks as the best yet. Eleven memorable days, which I'm sure we'll be repeating very soon!
Many thanks
Paul and Ginny
P.S. The goodies were much appreciated too.

“The best rental we have ever stayed in”
Reviewed 2 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

People often say you get what you pay for - this is very true of this property.
The view is staggeringly wonderful, a bad weather day is made so much better when watching the crashing waves and driving rain through the windows of this property.
To arrive to a meal ready to cook, to a bottle of bubbly and the place decorated for Christmas is priceless.
The attention to detail is wonderful, the sky tv package, the lovely bedding, the underfloor heating in the bathroom, the huge curved sofa, the dishwasher, the coffee machine and capsules...... I could go on and on.
Sue was wonderful, good company and interested in us. She made us feel very welcome and much appreciated.
This is by far the best rental we have ever used and would love to return again. We cannot fault it and would highly recommend it.
We had a wonderful Christmas / New Year and loved every minute of our time in Cockleshell Cottage.
