Best views in Cornwall, you can see the ocean from your bed! Delicious meal , essentials and treats left for us on arrival, really kind touch. High class with all your home comforts, what more could you ask for? Very clean, and I wanted to take the rain power shower home with me!! My mother-in-law wants to book for September too!
Thank you for a fabulous week in the sun :)

“A Wonderful Holiday in a Beautiful Location”
Reviewed 12 June 2013 for a stay in May 2013

person found this review helpful

This is a wonderful property. It is well maintained, the location is the best and you will never find a better view. The pictures are exactly as shown, and you really wake up everyday feeling like you are on a tropical island vacation. It has a great shower and separate spa tub. Easy walk into town and you can watch the water level across the causeway to St. Michael Mont so there is no waiting. Extra specials await you when you arrive and before you leave - don't hesitate to book this cottage.

“Brilliant holiday cottage”
Reviewed 2 March 2013 for a stay in February 2013
2
people found this review helpful

Just to say we had a wonderful three weeks holiday at Cockleshell Cottage. Sue & Simon certainly know how to make your stay wonderful.
Attention to detail and everything you could possibly want for a February holiday, cosy bath robes, slippers and wow, underfloor heating in the super bathroom!!
The lovely meal and goodies on arrival was very thoughtful, also the Cornish cream tea on our departure was very much appreciated.
The views from the cottage are spectacular and we were very lucky to have quite a few beautiful sunrise's and sunset's.
I personally sat outside on tthe clear nights just watching the star's and listening to the waves crashing on the rocks, it was perfect.
Unfortunately the spell was broken and we had to come back home and to reality. At least we have been lucky enough to have found this wonderful gem of a cottage and can't wait to go back.
Sue & Simon - if I ever win the lottery are you open to offer's for Cockleshell and Rolling Surf?

“This was possibly the best 2 weeks holiday we have ever had”
Reviewed 7 January 2013 for a stay in December 2012

person found this review helpful

What can I add to the other glowing comments from other satisfied guests. Well here goes ...... This was our first time ever going away at the festive period and it was the best decision we have ever made. The cottage was even better than the photos on the website showed and I have included some of our photos of the views from the living room and courtyard. As it is the last cottage in the row no one but the postman comes up to the door and it is so private with unbelieveable views of St Michaels Mount, the sea and the surrounds. In fact it was so lovely that we spend a huge amount of time in the lounge and the courtyard enjoying the ever changing views. As it was Christmas and New Year the weather was not brillent but that just make the ever changing scenes out the full front glass wall even better. Every day the scenery was different depending on the weather and the tide from miles of sandy beach to crashing waves only metres from the cottage front. We have never gone on holidays and done so little before but we never wanted to leave the cottage. As a completely relaxing holiday destination I couldn't recommend it enough. Then added to that is the total service you receive from the owners and staff in making sure everything is perfect for you including for us Christmas decorations and a beautiful fully decorated Christmas tree along with the normal excellent service you would receive at any other time of year. Worth every penny and we will definitely come again at a different time of year next time.

Liked best: Hard to decide between the luxury cottage and the unbelieveable constantly changing scenery outside.
Liked least: Would have liked more buses in and out of Marazion but it was the winter timetable.

This cottage is superb, all the facilities were as described and all of excellent quality and in good condition.
The view of the Mount from the cottage is excellent and as advertised, and due to the property location it is easy to get to, close to local facilities, but also very isolated and quiet, the only passing traffic is people walking on the beach, which is at least 2 meters below the lower terrace of the cottage, so therefore you are not overlooked.
I met both the owner and manager of this property, and both were equally friendly and welcoming, as were the people in the local area, the added touch of providing a meal on the day of arrival and a leaving present of a cream tea to take home only re-enforced this view.
I would really recommend this property over others that I have stayed in, my only qualm is that by doing so I may not be able to get to stay again due to it being fully booked!!
This place is a home away from home, comfortable and well worth the money.
