“Just returned from our fifth stay!”

We have just returned from our fifth stay at The Flower House and, as always, it was like home from home, lovely comfy bed, beautiful linen and sparklingly clean.

The Flower House provides a tranquil base for visiting the many local attractions around Penzance and at such a reasonable price.

We look forward to our next visit.

Lovely cottage, well furnished and a very very comfy bed! Central to St. Ives, Sennan, Lands End etc. Lovely area with some stunning coastline.

Claudine and Trevor were lovely and didn't have any problems in stopping and chatting about the surf.

Would thoroughly recommend staying here!

“Recommended!”
Reviewed July 28, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Very clean, comfortable accommodation in a good location for access to west Cornwall. Owner Claudine friendly and approachable with very good local knowledge.

Enjoyed a week of good weather (for a change!) with lots of coastal walking.

We had a lovely three nights here and it was great to be allowed such a flexible booking in July. The Flower House is clean and uncluttered and thoughtfully presented to mKe it a relaxing place to be. Claudine was very helpful in suggesting places to go and we particularly enjoyed Gwenver Beach.

“Charming house in excellent location.”

We stayed at the Flower House for a week having travelled from Edinburgh for my partner's 60th birthday. The refurbishment of the barn or stable to transform it into the Flower House has been very tastefully done and the house is perfect for two people without being in any way cramped. The bed was comfortable and the living area attractive. There are indeed flowers outside and house and Claudine had left a vase of fesh flowers inside along with a bottle of wine and a pint of milk. The Flower House is perfectly situated to explore south Cornwall and has a parking space which is not always easy to come by in this part of the country. Cornwall is the perfect example of what a seaside area should be like and the Flower House has a holiday atmosphere that adds to the experience. If you are in the area try the fantastic fish and chips from Newlyn's only fish and chip shop, a stone's throw from the harbour. I would definitely recommend the Flower House to any couple wanting a romantic getaway in Cornwall.

As delightful as ever
This is now our fourth stay at The Flower House and, as before, we were not disappointed.

Although it has now been established for four years, The Flower House looks as pristine and fresh as it did from our first visit soon after Claudine Sear, the owner, opened her lovely self catering venue.

We very much appreciate so many aspects of The Flower House – the lovely feeling of space which the lounge and dining area provides and the very comfy bed to mention just a couple and, of course, the wonderful hosting which Claudine provides.

We look forward to our next visit.

Me and my partner visited The Flower House from the 14th-16th February 2014. With the weather not being on our side on arrival we were very glad as to how accommodating Claudine was in making sure we were welcomed and comfortable before leaving us to our own devices. It was clear to see how well loved the property was. All rooms were immaculate and beautiful decorated with that all important holiday feel.
It was soon clear how close we were to so many local amenities and attractions. A local pub and a decent size TESCO was useful for the nights we didn't fancy braving being out and about! The Flower House comes with a fully equipped kitchen, very useful for those evenings when you fancy a quiet one in. The feature which made the accommodation most cosy was the log burner. Plenty logs and materials were left for us to enjoy the warmth at a cooler time of the year.
On the Saturday we made a lovely trip to Lands End which took us all of 20 minutes or so from the Flower House. That evening we decided to adventure to a restaurant Claudine had kindly recommended called The Bakehouse. The food was mouth watering and the return taxi services were a pleasure and hassle free.
This is a perfect getaway. If you are after relaxation with the choice of making adventures during the stay then this is the place for you. Me and my partner are certainly considering a further cheeky visit in the near future!

Thank you for your fantastic hospitality Claudine!
