A great little cottage with wonderful views, brilliant location and great features. I had a great time celebrating my 30th birthday here with my friends and family and will definitely be coming back for the summer.

The house was beautiful with the best equipped kitchen, quality linen and towels I have ever rented. The house was more like a home than a rental and we have already rebooked.

Outstanding views to this property in a lovely location, however maybe hilly for some.

Thanks for your lovely review of Gwavas Lakes - we're delighted that you enjoyed that wonderful view, although as you found, to get such elevation you do have to embrace the hills! We think it's worth the effort, and we're sure that you will agree. Hopefully you'll consider returning again in the future. Tanya, Customer Support

Lovely Cottage, very well equipped with excellent views, you should add a picture of the Kitchen as I was concerned about its size, but it is very spacious.

Thank you for your suggestion to add a photograph of the kitchen, which you'll see we've now done. We're glad you had a great stay.

Lovely cottage with a great view of the harbour. Good off road parking which is a definite plus in Newlyn.
