"Bliss!"

Stayed for 5 nights and wanted to stay longer. Shame about the weather but to be honest we didn't go for the weather. We went for a break and it definately ticked all the boxes. Stunning location, cottage, 5* service......we couldn't fault anything. Would love to go back again. Extremely friendly owner who knew just how to give you a lovely relaxing break. Can't think of anything negative. If you are looking for a few days, week or two it is the best location. Even with the wet weather we encountered while we were staying at the cottage it was so nice to come back to the house and lay back and enjoy the St Michael Mount View!! Absolately stunning. Lovely location - nothing too far to travel to - couldn't have been better. Hope to go back sometime soon.

Thanks for your comments & review, we really appreciate it.

"warms the 'cockleshells' of your heart"

A little bit luxury away from home. The sort of place you wish you could call home! A wonderful holiday let that was made even more special by Sue's extra touches from the two course meal on arrival to the cream tea goody bag on departure. Topped off with the overall magic of Cornwall, it was truly unforgettable.

Thanks for your review, we really appreciate it. We also look forward to you coming back in the Autumn.

"Light and airy with superb views"

All the comforts of home plus touches of luxury. We were welcomed on arrival with a lovely 3 course meal prepared just ready for us to heat - a real treat after a long day's travel- and farewelled with a scrumptious Cornish cream tea, all courtesy of the kind owners. The cottage has an unusual layout with the living and kitchen areas upstairs. This gives superb views of St Michael's Mount and the seascape. Everything has been thought of in the kitchen. The bedding and linen were of very high quality. We were warm and snug despite some fierce Cornish gales. The cottage is spacious enough for a couple. The only minor issue is the lack of parking - the allocated parking space is a few hundred yards away, and did make it difficult for unloading and re-loading our luggage in the car.

Many thanks for your great review, and we are really happy you felt the service received was good. Just a quick point, guests are able to unload in Chapel Street, which is about 80 feet from Cockleshell's front door. Thanks again for your time in reviewing us.

"cockleshell heaven"

When we first saw the cottage it had a wow factor straight away, stunning views,magnificent property,lovely decor,what more could one want? oh and i forgot to include the lovely meal that was waiting for us along with a bottle of wine. Our best break ever,by far.Every little detail had been thought of. It was a joy to meet the owner Sue who went out of her way to make you feel very welcome and nothing was to much trouble . We hope to return very soon. Left feeling very refreshed in fact we didn't really want to go . But work beckoned.. Chris & Heather

Many Thanks for your great review. We are so glad you enjoyed your break and look forward to you coming back in October.
