Great family sized cottage in Cornwall. Loads of space, lovely throughout, great terrace for sitting in the sun. Brilliant spot. Highly recommended place to base yourself if you are a keen walker, or just want somewhere quiet to relax and read. The kitchen is far better equipped than mine at home! Just lovely all round.

Ten of us gathered for a wonderful October week and loved this cottage with its comfy beds, cosy fire in the evenings, pretty well equipped kitchen , practical laundry and shower room and space for everyone to do their own thing if they did not want to be sociable. Two dogs too enjoyed the back garden and terrace,( sniffing out... More

We were two couples and our redheaded Irish terrier. Fox Cottage suited us perfectly for the week. It was very clean and welcoming on arrival. It is extremely well equipped with domestic appliances and the kitchen has everything one has at home. The bedrooms are comfortable so much so that my wife is seeking out a similar new bed and...

We had such a lovely week at Fox Cottage. Fresh flowers on arrival, clean, very well appointed with a wonderful selection of books and also very baby friendly. Stunning views from the master bedroom and very well situated. A gentle walk down to the quiet stony beach after tea was a great way to end the day for the babies... More

Nine of us, (plus dog), ranging from 10 months to a 70 year old, spent a week in this lovely cottage in the cove at Porthoustock. We couldn't have asked for more. The cottage is well provided, comfortable and clean with all the facilities needed (including a newly installed kitchen). A lovely patio to relax on, a well sized kitchen,... More

How sad to read a critical review of this lovely, generous-spirited house. I and my family have stayed in it over many holidays and cannot imagine anyone finding it wanting except, grudgingly, in the most minor details. In the last four or five years it has been steadily upgraded to a rare combination of home-from-home charm with clean, efficient comfort... More

What a let down! We spent just over 2 weeks here for our main Summer holiday and were so disappointed with what we were led to believe was going to be a well looked after holiday home. Instead we found a damp, worn, old fashioned run down cottage. Stained bathroom carpets, broken crockery, mouldy showers and unkempt terraces made us... More

We have just spent a lovely week staying at self catering Fox Cottage in Porthoustock, Cornwall. We absolutely love staying on the Lizard but had not visited this particular cove previously. The cottage was absolutely lovely - everything we could have asked for and provided a fabulous base for visits to Kynance Cove, Coverack, Lizard Point etc. The owner, Jenny... More
