My love affair with Cornwall began in my childhood when my Parents would take my siblings and I every summer for our holidays. So it was very natural to want to give my own children the same experiences and to build happy memories. I came upon this superb cottage by chance and ever since it is the only place I will go to when I book a holiday. It is absolutely beautiful, every nook and cranny is taken up with some pretty ornament, attractive lampshades, and it is extremely comfortable and spacious. As soon as I step through the front door I can't help but feel both exhilarated and relaxed at the same time. When we return in the evenings from our days out at the beach it is pure bliss to relax in this gorgeous 'home.'
Words cannot do justice to this very sophisticated, clean, and well looked after cottage. If like me you love The Lizard Penisula, an area of outstanding beauty and you are looking for somewhere to stay that is fabulous, then this is the place for you. And the bonus is you can always go back for another holiday, as in my experience the owners appear to spend alot of their own free time there, ( as read in the visitors book ) and clearly have invested alot of time and effort into maintaining this cottage to a very high standard.
Had a fabulous 2 weeks at Palm cottage. Lovely quirky cottage that is very well equipped and very clean! We enjoyed sitting in the pretty garden in the evenings, and eating at the Prince of Wales pub just across the road from the cottage. Micheal, the owner, contacted us via e-mail with everything we needed to know about keys, the private parking, facilities etc. Any queries we had were dealt with quickly and easily. Spent a lovely afternoon at Minack open air theatre and watched a moving performance of 'Birdsong' by Sebastian Faulkes. We hadn't been to Cornwall for 28years and we were so please to see that not too much has changed. Poldhu Cove, Cadgwith, Church Cove, Helford estuary are all essential places to visit. Coverack is wonderful with a lovely sandy beach at low tide and good water based activities, cafes and a small working harbour. While we were there the dreadful storm devastated Coverack but everyone rallied round and although it will take time I am sure it will recover. Thank you again for such a lovely place to stay.
I'm afraid to say I will second what other reviews have said and state that this cottage is so much better than the pictures convey- its characterful, quaint and had everything we needed as a family of four. The garden is a bonus as is the country pub across the road - what a pleasure to return to this place after a hard day exploring! Places to visit praa sands beach ( great for families), st michaels mount, porthleven, church cove, coverack is nice for a quick explore, falmouth , poldhu cove and kynance cove the list goes on! The cottage is perfectly placed to feel total escapism but close enough to amenities , what a wonderful week thanks so much to the owners for letting us stay!
This is such a lovely homely cottage. The photos do not do it justice. The cottage was extremely clean with fresh bed linen on. On arrival, there was welcome tea and coffee with biscuits with kettle full and boiled. Heaters on and wood and coal for the fire. From the first day, it really felt like we had walked into our own home and we all felt comfortable straight away. There was 6 of us, myself, my husband and 4 children, age 10, 9, 6 and 6. We also took our little Jack russell and found the cottage really spacious for us all. There was wifi which was really good as all kids had gadgets and were all able to connect up at the same time without any problems. Having a real open fire in the evenings while playing board games or watching TV was really cosy and was lovely to have us all together as a family.
We spent a week at Palm Cottage over New Year with our three young children: 7,5 and 4 year olds. Being familiar with the area we knew what to expect. The cottage however was beautiful and became a wonderful base and "home" for our stay. The children loved the Beatrix Potter bedroom and we were able to explore the wonderful beaches and coastal walks from the village. We will definitely return to this part of Cornwall and can't recommend Palm Cottage more highly. It was a real treat and provided the relaxing break that we were looking for. Thank you Mike.
Absolutely loved our stay at Palm Cottage so much that we will definitely be returning next year. Drawn in by the charming pictures of this homely Cornish cottage ,we arrived expecting to be pleasantly surprised. As with all the reviews I read before arriving, I can confirm that the photos do not do this place justice. The rooms are bigger, and the attention to detail makes this place really feel like a home away from home, plus the decor leaves you in no doubt that you are in Cornwall, with gorgeous Cornish pottery and paintings of local places. The children's room is charming, from the Beatrix Potter pictures on the walls, the books and teddy bears in the cupboard and the adorable window seats, which my boys fell in love with. The little details such as the excellently equipped kitchen, the tea and biscuits on arrival, the flowers from the garden in various vases about the place. The location is well placed with no more than half an hour to a selection of awesome beaches such as Church Cove, excellent bakers in St Keverne and fab food at The Prince of Wales opposite. The owner was really helpful and quick to respond to our enquiries and there was a pack with local places of interest there on our arrival - which on looking through had vouchers for money off at places such as The Edwn Project and Helston Seal Sanctuary.
I would definitely recommend this places as an ideal spot to relax, recharge and make the most of the local area.
What a fab property this is. The site photos do not do it justice. The cottage is spacious,very comfortable, well equipped, decorated/lit tastefully and very homely. Palm Cottage is ideally located enabling us to do our favourite walks around the Lizard and Roseland peninsula's. The pub across the road is very nice with an amazing garden. The food/service was great and is definitely worth a visit. The owner (Mike) was very responsive to any requests. We would love to return if in the area again.
