Nice cottage in a good location

  • 3 of 5

It is a pleasant little cottage, clean and in a good location. Parking can be a problem and you may end up in the next street. I think the description 'luxuriously equipped' is a bit over the top especially where the television, dvd player etc. is concerned as they seem a bit dated and difficult to operate.

Overall however, it is more than adequate if you are only staying a few nights as the kitchen is well equipped and the local amenities are close by.

If you are looking for a really nice meal, Harry's Cali-style is our recommendation.

Owner's Response: Hi John, I'm sorry you had issues working the tv equipment. Unfortunately once you combine Satellite PVR, Catch up TV, DVD player, TV and Games console with netflix and amazon prime it does become a little complex. This is why we take the time to show you how to work it on arrival. We take a great deal of time and care to equip the cottage so that you should want for nothing during your stay, from comfy beds and large sofa, free broadband and wifi though bikes, surfboards, beach equipment, toys, games, books and dvds to tupperware and egg cups! We feel the description perfectly fits what we offer. Our neighbors do their best to leave a space for our guests on the road right outside, but sometimes you may have to use the bays round the corner as stated on the listing. You should never have to hunt for a space and all parking is free with no time restrictions. If you need to unload the car there is always room to stop opposite the cottage on the other side of the road.

Property is fully equipped and exactly as we were hoping for.

  • 5 of 5

We found the property very well equipped, there was nothing more needed for a comfortable and relaxing stay. A shed full of equipment to enhance an outdoor experience either cycling or on the beach and a relaxing barbecue at the end of a busy day. With board games etc, and even a Wii in case of inclement weather to entertain all of the family indoors. The kitchen is a great place to prepare and enjoy a family meal when wanting to have a quiet night in. We recommend the Grameen tandoori restaurant and The Bluff breakfast and Sunday lunch. A beautifull garden to enjoy a moment of peace to recharge the batteries for tomorrow's activities. The information pack is very useful as a guided tour of the area, making it easier to enjoy being out and about. Very central to all the visitor attractions, just minutes away from surrounding towns. St Ives, Penzance, St Michaels Mount. However just couldn't beat the beauty of the local beach, absolutely fabulous. We will be back and have recommended it to our friends and family. Have fun and enjoy!!!

Great cottage in ideal location.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week in this lovely little cottage. There is everything you need for a perfect holiday.

Spotlessly clean and very well maintained,

The cottage is perfectly placed for exploring this part of Cornwall .

The town has all the shops (and pubs!) you need within walking distance.

As a bonus the weather was brilliant!

We would definitely return and recommend to friends.

Everything you need in a perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at the cottage everything was lovely and clean with all the essentials to hand. The cottage was in a brilliant location with easy access to different parts of Cornwall. Ben and Vicky were very helpful and answered any questions we had before and during our stay. The garden was lovely in the sunshine to have a BBQ in the evening. A lovely home from home cottage!

Very clean, Well equipped cottage

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely few days at cosy cottage, we found it to be really well equipped, very clean and tidy. The welcome bottle of wine was a lovely touch.

The only comment I would make is that, as is common for old terrace cottages, the stairs are steep and care is needed, therefore it may not be suitable for anyone with mobility difficulties.

I would recommend this cottage as a great base to explore beautiful Cornwall

About Ben & Vicky

We are a couple in our 30's with a young child who moved to Cornwall in 2005.

Ben & Vicky purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Ben & Vicky chose Hayle

We bought Cosy Cottage in 2007 as we recognized it would make a great holiday home. We then renovated it throughout to make it a pleasant place to stay with new furniture and equipment.

As we have a young child ourselves we understand parents concerns so have ensured the cottage is child safe and supply a cot, highchair and stair gates to reduce the amount you need to pack.

What makes this cottage unique

Perfect for family holidays with unlimited Broadband & WiFi Internet, Satellite TV with Recording and On Demand, Five bikes, Two bodyboards, Nintendo Wii game console and games, Film streaming on Netflix and Amazon Prime with your own account, DVD player and DVDs, Buckets, spades and crab lines, Books, puzzles and games!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Compact and cosy with central heating and flame effect fire. Very clean and nicely equipped kitchen, with those few extra conveniences, eg salt and pepper, kitchen roll, some groceries etc. Possible do with a few more mugs. Always able to park either outside the house or just a few doors away.

Nice and quiet area with beach of outstanding beauty just minutes away.

Use of bikes in the shed a great feature.


Found the property to be as advertised. Always found parking available in the street in front, although a little intimidating at first for an American driver-narrow. Not a large apartment, but who spends time inside when there are so many things to see! Pleasant neighbors on both sides. Hayle has a large Cooperative grocery store, several petrol stations, a nice small library with computers/Internet available, bars, restaurants, take-out shops, everything that you might require. All in all, a nice and affordable place to stay.
