Our artificial grass lawn is great for children playing or for adults to simply enjoy relaxing on, surrounded by established shrubs and hedges. Two small gates mean this main garden area can be enclosed and safe for small children. This detached house can be accessed all the way around and there are two further gates meaning you can section off the back garden from the front, should you wish to.

St Michael's Mount- world famous National Trust property just a mile away
Minack theatre- outdoor theatre built into the cliff face neighbouring Porthcurno beach and Telegraph museum
Eden project - 45min drive
Flambards- family friendly theme park, with museum and rides. Usually, free returns within the week is offered and tickets can be purchased with your Tesco vouchers.
National Trust gardens-
St Ives - we think the best way to see this stunning harbour is on the train from St Erth. This not only avoids the hassles of parking but the views from the train of the Hayle estuary and stunning beaches of Porthminster and St Ives are truly breathtaking.
Fishing harbours -
Mousehole- quaint and beautiful, with great cafes (Whole Foods deli) and quality restaurants (The Old Coastguard, The Cornish Range) Why not visit Newlyn harbour on the way, the Tolcarne Inn offers a great seafood menu.
Porthleven- famous for its photographs of the storms of February 2014 when the waves pounded this traditional Cornish fishing harbour, this is a must see village. Unique local shops and fantastic restaurants (Kota Kai serves great food and very family friendly) and pubs, all with a great view of the ocean.

Why Carol Little chose Goldsithney
Many great novels, from Poldark to Daphne du Maurier and Rosamund Pilcher present Cornwall as the beautiful country that it is, but why not discover it for yourself and get to know its amazing beaches and secret hideaways. We love Sunnyhurst because it offers us everything; close to the beaches, great local walks, peacefully positioned just outside the village (which offers a shop, two pubs and a post office with beauty salon) It is easily accessed from the A30, being well placed to access the beautiful areas within west Penwith as well as the stunning St Ives.
What makes this House unique
The layout of this property makes it perfect for an intergenerational holiday or two families wanting to spend quality time together; on the ground floor there is one en suite double bedroom, bathroom and bunk bedroom, whilst upstairs there is an ensuite master bedroom with king size bed as well as a second bedroom with en suite toilet.

Excellent base for a family holiday.
Very well equipped, high quality accommodation with very attentive owners.
Ideally placed for exploring the region in a pleasant village with a well stocked shop and pub grub a short walk away. Supermarkets within 10 minutes by car.
Only a short drive to either coast and numerous superb beaches.
Multiple quality eating out options too.
Can't think of any negatives and would happily stay here again.
Thanks Carol and family for a great holiday.
No negatives, I'm thrilled! We are so happy that your 2 week holiday was all you'd wanted it to be and for all involved. We wouldn't hesitate having you back either, fantastic guests!
*Fantastic spacious and clean property a real home from home and friendly welcome*
My family and I stayed at the property for one week.
First impressions were how lovely it was to be welcomed by the owner and luxury welcome pack to get us started.
The property was lovely and clean and deceptively spacious with ample parking.
The kitchen is situated at the rear of the property leading out into the garden which made this a perfect setting as the children were able the enjoy the beautiful private garden whilst we made dinner. We really enjoyed having the garden as it made fun recreation for non beach and exploring days.
With that in mind my family and I also loved the beach within a 20 minute walk of the property a real plus point for those post tea beach walks.
Bedroom sizes and bathrooms were perfect and again well equipped and clean!
The location was perfect with lots to do within a short drive if you choose to.
I would like to thank Carol for making us so welcome it was lovely to meet you, a nice personal touch and we would most defiantly and probably will book with you again.
*A wonderful location, property and owner. We would most defiantly recommend!*
That is great to hear Jo thank you! You and your family were fantastic guests and we'd be delighted to have you return to us. We want all our guests to have wonderful, stress free holidays here and are so pleased that this was your experience. See you again!
Beautiful house and best location to discover Cornwall
We spent our holiday in Goldsithney for one week and had a great time. Thanks again for the nice welcome presents.
We are delighted that you had a great holiday and thank you for being great guests!!!
Great well equipped house, ideal for families.
We are a family with 3 young children, a 4 year old, 2 year old and an 11 month old. The house is a very good size, and would easily accommodate a family larger than ours. It is very well equipped, well organised and very clean. There was very little we needed to do with regard to safety of the children and stopping them getting to things they shouldn't! The house had a stair gate, and the garden has gates which meant it is fully enclosed. Carol also provided us with a cot and high chair.
On arrival we were met by Carol and her son. He son showed my children a large collection of toys, books and games they had available for us to use in the house, which was a nice touch, and helped to keep them occupied. When we had a minor issue (a light bulb went and tripped the power), Carol was very quick to react, and popped around to resolve the issue which was great. The owner was very helpful, and let us know about the local beaches and places to visit, as well as leaving a comprehensive guide.
I would highly recommend staying at the house, and we will definitely be considering staying there again next time we visit Cornwall!
We are delighted that you had a great holiday and that our home met all of your requirements and more! We would be more than happy to welcome such a lovely family back. Thank you.
Great house, family friendly with good size bakcyard and kitchen. Clean and nice.
We were two families with small children travelling together. The house is big, and with two bedrooms upstairs and two downstairs, it was possible to have some privacy as well as spending time together. We especially liked the big and light kitchen with doors leading out to the nice backyard. The area is nice as well, only few minutes drive down to Perranuthnoe beach which became our favourite. The little village has two pubs and a little shop-just what you need. The owner left some great toys the children loved, and a nice welcome packet the grown-ups enjoyed:)
One thing we did miss was to be able to use the tumble dryer. The weather and the house is quite humid, and with three children the laundry piled up because it took a long time to dry.
Great house, great area, definitely worth a visit!
We are delighted that you had a wonderful holiday here and found the property met your needs and more. The tumble dryer is absolutely available to use, for those unfortunate enough to have wet weather during their stay!
Great Stay! Beautiful spot for families!
We would like to say a huge thank you to Carol for our wonderful stay. After being personally greeted on arrival, we were shown into the accommodation which was absolutely beautiful.
A great place to be! It immediately felt like home. Very clean, very cosy and well equipped. Fabulous location to explore South Cornwall!! Would definitely return and can highly
recommend the house for a beautyfull vacation time!
We are delighted that you had a wonderful Christmas here and that our home proved to be a great base for everyone. We hope that you revisit in the summer and get to know Cornwall in the sunshine!
