“Cannot fault our stay. Pure luxury.”
Reviewed December 17, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Parked the car for the week and chilled. Wonderful walks along the beach for miles.
Treated ourselves to a meal at Bens Cornish Kitchen. A real treat, perfection.
Cottage was beyond our expectations. Everything you could want and more. Wonderful view too. It was so nice waking from the sound of the waves. We were very lucky with the weather end of Oct early Nov, and sat outside looking over to St. Micheals mount.
The meal waiting for us in the cottage with a bottle of fizz was very welcome after our journey, as was the Cornish goodies on departure. Can't fault the owners and cottage, superb.

Just got back after a fantastic week in a Beautiful cottage overlooking St Micheals mount (WHAT A VIEW) We didn't want to go out in the morning and when we did we always tried to get back before dark so we could enjoy the view of the castle at sunset. The cottage itself is Stunning and everything you could wish for is catered for I highly recommend you book and stay here you won't regret it at all it will probably leave you wanting to come back for more . To be honest I don't know why I'm writing this because it could make it harder for us to book next time and we will definitely be booking again LOVED IT

“Stunning cottage, area and view.”
Reviewed November 17, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

We had a wonderful time here and were sorry to leave. A warm, comfortable home from home with the added benefit of a stunning view. Upon arrival we found a laid table with a bottle of wine and a prepared meal in the fridge which was excellent. We ate out a couple of times at the Cutty Sark and would thoroughly recommend it to anyone. Lands End, The Manick Theatre and St Ives all worth a visit but the local area is hard to leave. We were accompanied by a Grey Seal while on a beach walk and the local bird life gave us a lot of pleasure being sable to view them from the lounge. Thank you both.

“Perfect cottage for a perfect honeymoon”

We spent the most wonderfull week in Cockleshell for our honeymoon.
The location and views are just amazing, we used the terrace every night.
We had an excellent meal waiting for us when we arrived, ans all the little extras were most apprieciated.
The cottage is really close to the local bars and resteraunts which are incedible, the food at Ben's Cornish kitchen is amazing fine dining (you need book though) and the Kings Arms has the most fantastic pub grub.
We cant wait till our return visit, Sue was a lovely host and gave us loads of ideas and advice for day trips.
If you are lucky enough to book this cottage you wont be disapointed, it's the best holiday cottage we've stayed at in the UK
Thanks Sue and Simon for our perfect honeymoon

Pre holiday communications were great and as you approach Marizion and the Mount bursts into view, if you are human, it will take your breath away!
The cottage has everything you need and more and that is not including the view. It would be impossible to tire of watching the changing tides, Horace the seal, a variety of bird life which all play to the backdrop of St Michael's Mount and the daily drama of crossing the causeway before, after or more often than not during the tide flowing back in.
Everybody is so friendly. We felt immediately at home and have rebooked our next week in January to experience it all again in a different season.
Thank Sue and Simon.

“Memories are made of this....”
Reviewed May 16, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Fabulous cottage had all the mod cons you could want.
Was lovely to have a meal waiting for us after a long drive down. All the little extras provided made this a 5* plus cottage to stay.
The views were amazing which made it very difficult to want to go out at all but once out their are lots of places to visit.
