Beautiful views from bedroom and very quiet location. Lovely hosts.

September 2018

An Skyber is a lovely little cottage. The interior was nicely decorated and a little bit quirky.

July 2018

We had an excellent one week stay at An Skyber, which has been excellently converted and thoughtfully decorated for holidaymakers and anyone staying there. Chris and Sarah were great hosts, they were very relaxed and had good knowledge of the area, were able to help us and give good general advise. From An Skyber we able to quickly get to Penzance and the south side of the peninsula, to Zennor for coastal walks, the Tinners Arms and the Chapel Cafe and to St Just to the home baked pizza salad deli. We also visited St Ives on the open top bus from the bus stop at the Penzance junction, just yards from the cottage.

Spectacular sea views from across the road, we had good weather, but there is plenty to do locally - Portheras beach is a nice, but steep walk from Chypraze farm, minutes drive up the road and the Cafe at Geevor Tin Mine Centre is free to enter and as excellent views.

June 2018

An excellent base to explore the south west coastal path. This cottage is beautifully restored with many unique touches. Extremely clean and well equipped, and with a very comfortable bed. The owners Chris and Sara are very friendly and helpful and made us feel very welcome. Highly recommended.

Excellent place to stay, a great getaway with a short drive to anywhere you might want to go. Great view from the cottage and many amazing walks.

September 2017

We loved this carefully restored cottage and the eclectic selection of bits and bobs at An Skyber. Although the cottage is quite small there is a feeling of living in a roomy house. We had everything we needed. Chris and Sara live next door and are very lovely people. We might even come back :).

August 2017

Thoughtful, pleasant & helpful hosts.

July 2017

Charming and well-equipped little cottage, perfect for coast path and inland walks. Owners gave a warm welcome and managed to be available but not intrusive. Would love to visit again :)

July 2017

Excellent location if you you want to walk the coastal path and there is a bus so you can walk one way and bus back.

May 2017

An Skyber is a delightful base for a holiday in the wilds of West Penwith, with the sea to the west and moors all around. It was warm and snug, had everything we needed - and more - including a blissfully comfortable bed. And birdsong to wake us every morning. The owners were friendly helpful, without being at all intrusive.

June 2016

If you are looking for a wonderful place to stay while you are exploring the cornish countryside and like a very warm welcome this is the place to be!

April 2016

This is a perfect little cottage for two. Though small, the rooms on different levels made it feel more spacious and the windows on each level offered a different view. The ability to park right outside is also really convenient. The location is beautiful. The sea is right in front of you and open country all around. We walked each day in different directions and each was breathtaking. As we come from a large town the quiet, total darkness and stars at night were a real novelty. The hosts Chris and Sara were lovely. Made us feel really welcome and were right next door if we needed anything. We will definitely return.

October 2015
