“Beautiful property in a lovely part of the country”
Reviewed 2 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

What a fab property this is. The site photos do not do it justice. The cottage is spacious,very comfortable, well equipped, decorated/lit tastefully and very homely. Palm Cottage is ideally located enabling us to do our favourite walks around the Lizard and Roseland peninsula's. The pub across the road is very nice with an amazing garden. The food/service was great and is definitely worth a visit. The owner (Mike) was very responsive to any requests. We would love to return if in the area again.

Thank you so much for your kind comments following your recent stay at Palm Cottage whilst visiting old haunts.
The whole of the South-West Coastal footpath is most beautiful, but particularly we consider that part around the Lizard Peninsula and I wonder if you managed to walk down nearby Frenchmen's Creek, our personal favourite?
Almost a year ago we employed a semi-professional photographer to replace the images of the cottage that I had taken and whilst they are vastly superior I still feel that the reality is far better. I'd prefer it to be like that however rather than the alternative, like those of so many estate agents!
Pleased that you enjoyed the Prince of Wales pub, a grade-2 listed building by the way, which is not only so convenient but hospitable and good value.

Thank you for your kind comments and we are pleased that you all had an enjoyable holiday.
The welcome tray of tea/coffee and biscuits on arrival, often following a fairly long journey, is certainly appreciated by most of our guests. We look forward to you taking another holiday at Palm Cottage in the near future.

We have just returned from a few days break where we stayed at Palm Cottage. It was beautifully kept
and had everything that was required for a home from home stay. On arrival there was milk in the fridge and biscuits on the tray so after a long journey we could have a cup of tea immediately.

The bedrooms were beautifully decorated and beds very comfortable. It is certainly a place that we would consider visiting again.

Thank you for your most kind comments about your recent few days at Palm Cottage.
We are pleased that you were warm and comfortable and hope that you may return, perhaps during the summer months when you can enjoy the garden and barbecue.

“Perfect base for exploring The Lizard Peninsula”
Reviewed 15 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

A delightful cottage, a truly home from home, we didn't want for anything. Clean, comfortable, peace and quiet and an excellent location for exploring the Lizard Peninsula, Mullion Cove, Kynance Cove, Cadgwith, Penzance. The giant Cornish Pasties from The Horse & Jockey in Porthleven must not be missed. All in all, a wonderful stay, thoroughly recommended.

Thank you for your kind comments about your recent mini-break at Palm Cottage and we're pleased that you were comfortable and everything provided for your needs.
There is frequent chat in the area about from where to find the best pasties but I agree with you that the Horse & Jockey outlet either in Helston or Porthleven are the best for variety and flavour but many prefer Ann's pasties in Lizard village and where you can actually see them being prepared.

“Its a perfect place to relax and enjoy all around Cornwall”
Reviewed 30 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Me and my family spent few days in this magic cottage. everything was perfect, clean, very nice and Michael was very kind to us, always reply at time, was very useful and also leave us a nice detail with breakfast and a package holiday to enjoy everything around with the kids.
Although the weather wasn't the best, our stay at this place was very warm and nice and make the trip perfectly magic. Cornwall is beautiful and this house make it better. For sure we will be back in summer time if we can to enjoy the garden too.
thank you very much for everything Michael and Tricia! abrazos espanoles!!

Thank you so much for your generous comments about our cottage and we are so pleased that you had an enjoyable stay there despite the less than favourable weather but at least you felt cosy and warm via the log fire, I'm sure.
Indeed you must try to return in the summer when you can enjoy the spacious garden, hopefully to eat al fresco via the brick-built barbecue.
