“Well equipped retreat”
Reviewed April 5, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

The Flower House provided a quiet break in convenient village location - ideal for those wishing to explore this part of Cornwall any time of the year. Property is well equipped, warm, tastefully furnished, with owner on hand to provide helpful advice. Flowers & wine much appreciated.

“The Perfect Cornish Hideaway”
Reviewed September 30, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

The Flower House in Madron can be described in word only - Perfection!

This beautiful, small but spacious cottage is set in the lovely village of Madron right on the edge of Penzance and ticked all the boxes a traveler needs.

Warm, well equipped, beautifully decorated and furnished, a large and extremely comfortable bed, great shower with plenty of hot water and a lovely, peaceful location.

The host family are also warm, welcoming and very discrete.

I loved it on sight and will definitely recommend The Flower House to friends and family. Don't miss this little gem of a place - you will not be disappointed.

We have just returned from our 5th (6th?) stay at The Flower House in Madron and once again we very much enjoyed our stay. The owner, Claudine, has carried out some improvements to the décor and furnishings and, as always, in very good taste which has further improved what was already a delightful place to stay in.

As always, it was beautifully clean and pristine and they deserve their success.

We look forward to our next visit

“Stunning cottage, made our little trip!”

Absolutely love this cottage!! It was so airy and light, but also cozy with the log fire. We only stayed for 2 nights, but I could have stayed here forever. The décor is perfect inside and out, and would appeal to people of all ages. Claudine has got the running of this cottage down to a T - it is self catering but we were left milk in the fridge and a bottle of wine! This was above and beyond anything I ever expected. The location was perfect too - we were only a 5 minute drive from the sea and strip, but far enough away from the hustle and bustle. Private parking was a big bonus too. We loved everything about this stay and we are already planning our next trip down! Thank you Claudine, I am in love with your cottage!

“A perfect retreat”

Unfortunately we only stayed for 2 nights at the Flower house. However, we have no doubt that we will stay there again and for a longer period. We were welcomed on our arrival by Claudine who is very pleasant and friendly. We immediately got the feeling of making the right choice. The flower house is perfect for two people. The bedroom is large and accommodates an extremely comfortable bed. The pictures that you see via trip advisor gives a true reflection of the building. It is extremely clean well decorated and retains its oldie worldie authenticity.
There was a nice bottle of wine presented on the table to welcome us and which was enjoyed very much. Lovely, just lovely.
