“An absolute gem”
Reviewed November 11, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

My friend and I stayed for three (too-short) weeks in The Cot in gorgeous Cadgwith, and were so sad to leave. Fiona & Simon are fantastic hosts, and provided us with a beautiful, clean, well-equipped and character-filled place to stay in The Cot. The Cot itself has been beautifully maintained and decorated, and is in a perfect location to enjoy the wild beauty of Cadgwith and Cornwall. It's right near the Cadgwith Cove Inn, for Folk Night on Tuesday and the Cadgwith Singers on Friday, and a minute from the beach. We didn't have a car, but walked up into Ruan Minor to utilise the local bus services to explore the surrounding villages and beaches, or worked on our leg muscles and walked the picturesque roads and public footpaths. I can't say enough good things about both The Cot and Cadgwith, and would be back in a heartbeat. Highly recommended.

“Perfect location, perfect holiday”
Reviewed September 24, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We stayed for a week at the Cot and were very impressed by the standard of the accommodation and the close proximity to the pub!

We were greeted on our arrival by a bottle of champagne and a traditional Cornish cream tea (jam and freshly baked scones).

We had no complaints, everything exceeded our expectations and we will definitely be going back.

“Lovely location”
Reviewed October 19, 2012 for a stay in October 2012

The cottage has been well converted & equipped, I think it was suffering at the end of a busy season when we stayed there as I felt it needed a deep clean. Generally it was fine but there had been quite a few cobwebs missed and a spider had hatched a clutch of tiny babies so attention to detail wasn't quite there with the cleaning. I certainly wouldn't put any of my clothes in the washing machine or tumble dryer! On the other hand it was well furnished and a lovely cream tea left for our arrival which was very nice. The mattress in the main bedroom is either cheap or in need of replacing as its not very well padded! On the whole a very pleasant stay and the few grumbles we have can very easily be put right with a little money and some elbow grease and when they are corrected this would easily be a five star place to stay. A pretty, cosy warm cottage in a beautiful village by the sea.

Thank you for your feedback, the cottages are all deep cleaned in winter; following your comment about the bed we asked our letting agent to check that the quality was still satisfactory.

Apart from your welcome feedback, we're glad that you enjoyed your stay and look forward to seeing you again on your next visit.

We've stayed here for 2 consecutive years - and will certainly be back. The cottage has been renovated to an amazing standard - every mod con (the bathrooms are fantastic) but still protecting the history of the building. Cream tea left for your arrival. fresh crab from the shop on the beach, friendly pub, chat to the fishermen(who starred in the BBC programme 'The Fisherman's Apprentice'). So much to do and see and there can't be a better base than The Cot - we love it!
