Staying at Cockleshell Cottage was the most relaxing holiday I have ever taken. The cottage itself is perfect, completely comfortable and the view of The Mount is awe inspiring. I've already re-booked for spring next year and I suspect I shall book again for another autumn visit next year too. I'm not sure I'll ever go anywhere else ever again! Thank you so much Sue, Simon, Mollie and Caroline for a wonderful experience.

“A wonderful location, superb service and attention to detail made this a perfect holiday”

Given that we have travelled all over the world to some wonderful exotic locations for previous holidays, it speaks volumes that we felt that this was one of the best holidays we have ever had. The owners go to enormous trouble to ensure that every little need is catered for. For example as a same sex couple providing two pairs of men's slippers demonstrated this perfectly! On arrival there were fresh white roses on the table, dinner in the fridge and chilled wine waiting for us. The cottage is beautifully decorated and equipped to a high standard. Views are spectacular and the village of Marazion is delightful with galleries, great eating places and lovely beaches. The area is perfect as so many lovely beaches, gardens and other sights are within a short journey. A terrific find and one we shall be sure to return to.

“Beautiful cottage, beautiful setting and beautiful views.”
Reviewed 7 August 2012 for a stay in August 2012

The views are to die for - they could never be imagined from a photo.
The cottage - clean, comfortable with all the luxuries you could want. A lovely welcome meal and a cream tea to bring home with us all complimentary . We had a relaxing stay which ended too quickly.
A bonus was the weather!!!

“Little Gem with the Wow Factor”
Reviewed 2 July 2012 for a stay in June 2012

person found this review helpful

Arrival at Cockleshell cottage is down a little Cornish side street, worry sets in as you are met with a white gate along a row of plain terraced houses; worry over as as you step into your own little piece of relaxing heaven.
You enter into the upside down house immaculately presented via the bedroom, kitted out with plenty of space beach house decor & excellent appliances. As you move on through the house on the ground floor a spacious bathroom with large walk in shower & jacuzzi bath soaks away those post wandering aches. Ascending the stairs there is a utility room with fully integrated fridge/freezer & washer/dryer plus a microwave. The cherry on the cake is the open living/cooking/dinning area with that oh so Wow view, one wall of the room is a full on window & large patio doors. A lovely corner sofa gives you ample place to appreciate a nice glass of chilled wine (supplied of course & chilled in the wine cooler) along with that fantastic vista & I do mean fantastic!
My only mutter would be those of you who love your big beds this delightful place only musters a double but in its defence a comfy double.
The owners have real eye for detail & design, so if your after a chill, romance, or just a great little getaway Cockleshell cottage is a must for you.
Enjoy, we did.
