A beautiful cottage, with a really homely and welcoming feel and immaculately clean. Well stocked kitchen with everything you would need to cook and tidy away. In a stunning location, allowing for coastal walks, listening to the waves break on the beach below. Just perfect

Kinsale is a pretty cottage in an amazing location. It also has one parking space right outside the cottage, which is a rarity in Cadgwith. We did mange to fit our SUV in it, when parked at the right angle! The views are lovely and it really is only a few steps from the cove and the harbour. The cottage was beautifully clean and the kitchen was well equipped. However, there is not enough space for 6 adults to sit comfortably in the lounge and it all feels in need of upgrading / refurbishing. We had mixed weather and didnt really find the cottage a comfortable place to relax in.

Lovely location & cottage offers a great view though outside space was disappointing & could be so much better. Garden furniture needs replacing or repair/painting. Parking for anything other than a small car is about 400 yards away, as described on website but hill is pretty steep so not ideal for everyone. Overall a pleasant stay.

We agree, the location of Kinsale really is fabulous! Thanks for your helpful suggestions which we've shared with the owners. We're so pleased you enjoyed your stay overall and hope to welcome you back again soon. Julie, Customer Support

Kinsale Cottage is a delightful cottage in a gorgeous location in the beautiful, traditional Cornish village of Cadgwith. Straight from the front door, you can walk the fabulous cliffs; watch the fishing boats going in and out, and enjoy the fruits of the sea at the Cadgwith Cove Inn.

Lovely cosy cottage with a homely feel in one of the best positions in Cadgwith.

Excellent location, lovely cottage Steep terraced back garden affording an excellent view but not suitable for children or anyone not confident with steps

Reply from Classic Cottages

It's wonderful that you enjoyed the cottage and its location. The steps are quite steep, as we mention on the website but, for those that may find these difficult, a short walk to the beach or The Todden will give you some spectacular views too! Donna, Customer Support

Website photo gives the impression that front room was large however in reality was tiny and could seat four people max despite it being a cottage for 6. This was deceptive.

Reply from Classic Cottages

Thank you for your review. Kinsale is a gorgeous traditional cottage which retains its original layout and character. As such, the rooms are slightly smaller in comparison to modern properties, but there is room to seat a full party in the sitting-room, including on the beautiful window seat. Donna, Customer Support

We had a lovely stay at Kinsale, it’s a beautiful cottage with a lot of interesting history and in a lovely location in Cadgwith Cove. Plenty of walking opportunities on the SW coast path and pretty towns and villages nearby to explore too.

Lovely location, better suited to 5, not 6.

Stunning cottage, stunning village. Lovely pub with great food & very friendly locals. Word of warning though, triple check you have everything when you leave, it will not be returned!

Reply from Classic Cottages

It really is a stunning location complete with a friendly local pub. We understand how upsetting it can be to misplace a much-loved item and as much as we tried, we couldn't find the item you left at Kinsale. We are so pleased you had a good holiday, and we would love to help you with future bookings. Sarah R, Customer Support

Kinsale is a lovely, spacious, thatched cottage, cosy and in an ideal location, being only steps away from the coastal path and the excellent local pub.It has good views of the coast and the harbour.It is well equipped and comfortable and full of character and history.

Kinsale Cottage is full of old-world charm and comfortably accommodates up to 6 people. It’s situation in the heart of the delightful Cornish fishing cove of Cadgwith is ideal for those who, like us, enjoy getting away from the rat-race, walking on the cliffs and sampling the local food and musical traditions.

Reply from Classic Cottages

Thank you so much for your review. We're delighted that you enjoyed your stay. Walking along the cliffs and enjoying the delicious local cuisine sounds like the perfect recipe for a fabulous holiday! We'd love to welcome you back soon. Julie, Customer Support

Great location with pub and beach only a few short steps away.

Not been disappointed yet ??

A beautiful cottage in a spectacular location.

Kinsale is in a wonderful location, however could do with some TLC to bring the property in line with the levels required at this price point.

Beautiful quaint traditional cottage in a charming village.

Although we enjoyed our days out and long walks immensely it was also wonderful to just absorb the atmosphere at Kinsale. Make time to sit on the top terrace for the views and in the front garden to actually see fisherman at work just below.

Kinsale sits in a prime, stunning location. Handy for the coast path and a good local pub. Sitting on the front patio watching the boats come in, life pass by, is a lovely way to spend an evening. Special. Parking in Cadgwith is a challenge so to have its own spot is a bonus, BUT, the spot, in our opinion, is only really suitable for a small car. There is an alternative parking spot but it is quite a lengthy walk away. There are a number of level changes within the house and the main stairs are steep with narrow treads. The en-suite bathroom is very tiny, quite dark. By comparison, the family bathroom is bright, airy and spacious. A characterful property.

Thank you so much for your review and we are delighted you enjoyed the property. We feel the parking works for a medium size vehicle, eg Volkswagon Golf. However, there is alternative parking 450 yards away. Kelsey, Customer Support

We stayed a week in Kinsale as a family of 5 (2 adults and 3 children). We loved the cottage, traditional features, comfortable furnishings and well provisioned. It was great to be able to read the fascinating history of Kinsale. The views from upstairs and the garden were stunning and lovely to lie in bed listening to the waves. Katy the housekeeper was lovely, gave us lots of advice about where to go locally and was really quick to sort a minor problem we had with the boiler. The village is beautiful and unspoilt. We ate at Cadgwith Cove Inn twice and food and welcome were lovely. We all enjoyed watching the fishermen bringing home their catch onto the beach, a rare chance to see. The coastal path walks are spectacular views from the village. Slightly further away from larger towns but not so busy which we preferred. We loved the cottage and village and felt very lucky to have had our time there.

Beautiful cottage in a stunning coastal location. All the previous visitors to the cottage commented in the Visitors book about how much they all enjoyed their stays here and we are no different, great place to visit. Our stay in April was sunny but a little chilly in the late afternoons- but suitability wrapped up, a G&T on the top terrace overlooking the harbour was the perfect way to finish a day of walks on the SW coastal paths that surround Cadgwith.

It was such a privilege to stay in this gorgeous house which sits sideways on to the harbour in this stunning village. It really is the most perfect location. The house is surprisingly spacious and so cosy in winter with its shutters, log burner, and thick walls. Nothing disturbed us, not even storm Eunice and it’s aftermath. The villagers were very friendly, the pub handy, the post-office in Ryan Minor really helpful (serving excellent coffee, too) and the public car park a godsend to avoid navigating the seriously steep and twisting road to parking every day. Cadgwith is a jewel in Cornwall’s beautiful crown and we felt very lucky to have been able to find a week when we-and this house- were free. I have one piece of advice- don’t hesitate! Go! You will adore it.

GO - you will love it!

Lovely authentic thatched cottage, which was spacious enough for 6 people and had fantastic views.

Tastefully restored thatched cottage. Wonderful Inglenook granite fireplace which is the heart of the cottage. This is one of the nicest cottages in Cadgwith. I have been in most of them.

Beautiful location, but cottage has poor lighting and tired furnishings.

Thank you for letting us know regarding the lighting and furnishings, we'll certainly pass your comments on to the owners for future consideration. We very much look forward to welcoming you back.

Lovely cottage; lovely location.

Kinsale cottage more than lived up to our expectations. It was very well equipped with everything that we could need, and very cosy. The little schoolroom was ideal for our grandchildren to play and draw in, and for us to leave our walking boots and beach gear. The two terraces are just wonderful: the lower one catches the morning sun, and the upper one is lovely in the evenings. Cadgwith is one of our favourite places in all the world, not only because it is beautiful but because it still has a strong sense of community,

Fabulous cottage. Great location. The description is right about parking and a long uphill walk to alternative parking.

totally recommend, too small a village to get too busy, cadgwith crab was excellent, very peaceful, well-equipped cottage with great views and great swimming within 50m

Wonderful cottage, everything you need and more. Super location. Perfect for walking, eating wonderful food, and simply relaxing at the cottage. Thank you!

We had a fabulous stay at Kinsale, just what we all needed after the last year. The cottage is great, full of character, clean, tidy, well equipped kitchen and what a view! Would definitely return here again!

We had a wonderful stay at Kinsale . The cottage is full of character and is very cosy and comfortable .

The extension lead to the little electric fire in the dining room wasn’t working . This is not a complaint - just letting the owners know so it can be sorted and the fire can be used when it gets chilly .

Reply from Classic Cottages

We're so pleased that you had a comfortable stay at Kinsale and thanks for making us aware of the extension lead - we'll let the housekeeper know and ensure that it is replaced. Tressa, Customer Support

It’s speaks volumes that I return time after time, it is a haven, a retreat in the most beautiful spot on the coast. Bliss.

This is a beautiful cottage that was very well presented, with generous and thoughtful homely touches. It was cosy and warm and surprisingly quiet while Storm Dennis raged.

Now TV was a great touch as we caught up on some old movies

What a perfect treat for a winter break! We're so pleased you were able to kick back and relax. Tanya, Customer Support

If you can’t find what you need in the cottage for a perfect holiday you probably won’t need it.

An outstanding location too.

We were really grateful to be able to extend our stay for an extra night to watch the rugby World Cup final, although the result was not in our favour!

Kinsale is as always a joy to visit. It would be very hard to beat the location.

Kinsale is a charismatic historical cottage in an excellent location. We enjoyed the exciting view, the active live in the fishing village and the nearance to the CoastPath. For the next stay we would desire some new mattrasses.

Update The mattress in Bedroom 1 (king-size en suite bedroom) has been replaced.

An historic cottage in a picturesque location. We had a comfortable stay at Kinsale and enjoyed the stunning views over the working harbour below.

We loved our stay at the cottage. It’s a beautiful property in a gorgeous setting and everything we hoped it would be. We look forward to returning in the future

We had a great time at the cottage. The house was beautiful and clean, and the location was perfect! We loved sitting outside to enjoy the stunning views from the terrace. We cannot wait to return. Thanks for the great stay!

A truly quintessentiall thatched country cottage in a stunning location . Cadgwith is a wonderful warm friendly community with a wonderful pub . This is a wonderful place to really kick-back at any time of year.

It certainly sounds as though you had a wonderful stay at Kinsale - we hope you had the chance to enjoy the fabulous Cadgwith Singers performing sea shanties in the pub? They're a local sensation and definitely not to be missed. Tanya, Customer Support

You’d go a long way to beat the location

we love this cosy cottage this is our second stay and we hope to come back next year.

Liked the location the cosines of the house the ease of getting keys the kitchen equipment and the peacefulness of the surroundings. The village is still has a lively fishing community and it was great being a part of that. Local pub within 2 minutes of walking and the southwest coastal path on your doorstep. Great local shop and family Cornish pasty business, all in all just perfect The owners have gone to a great deal of trouble in providing excellent information about the house and lots of useful leaflets on local things to do.

We love visiting Kinsale it feels like coming home. Thank you for making it such a lovely cottage and special thanks to the housekeeper.

Very lovely holiday cottage in stunning location.Ideal for taking the dog on holiday because of the location to the no restrictions cove a stone throw away.

Kinsale is a pretty dog friendly cottage in a beautiful area close enough for all facilities but far enough to feel emersed in Cornish life it was a fabulous holiday.

A very old quaint and comfortable cottage in a lovely fishing village with super pub - good food, quiz and folk nights. Excellent general store 10 minute walk away.

Beautiful cottage in an idyllic location. Just be aware that it is situated at the bottom of a steep hill down a narrowish lane. I would highly recomnend this property as it is stunning.

Kinsale is very cosy, well equipped, perfectly renovated. We loved it to start our trips on the coast path from the doorstep in breathtaking coastal location. One of the loveliest places in Cornwall!

Perfect location in a beautiful village.

Ideally located but needs upgrading to a higher standard to compete within the market. However the character is lovely.

We had a wonderful holiday the cottage was beautiful and Cadgwith was so picturesque and friendly. we will be returning.Thank you.

Lovely cottage, full of charm and immaculate throughout. Very peaceful location - apart from closing time on Saturday night! Great pub too, locals extremely friendly.

Our fourth visit and we have already booked for 2018. This is a great cottage in a lovely location.

Great location if you enjoy peace and quiet. Not so good for local restaurant choice.

Kinsale is in a wonderfull position and is very cosy, spacious and well-equipped. The lovely terrace is perhaps not suitable for toddlers and the infirm. I would recommend this gorgeous cottage!

So many people have said the exact things that we would, such a great cottage in a great location couldn't want for more

Lovely oldy worldly thatched cottage. Fantastic location. Would highly recommend it.

Recommend to anyone and everyone

We loved our stay in Kinsale House - it's a unique property in a beautiful village, and a fantastic base to explore the South West Cornwall coastline.

The Lizard peninsular is spectacular and Cadgwith in the winter was glorious. Kinsale is really well positioned close to the sea but on the side of the valley with lovely views. It is very well appointed and very comfortable.

Excellent cottage. Had good fun with all the family and found the locals every morning for the dog walking. Very dog friendly.

We loved our cottage in the beautiful village Cadgwith. It was everything we wanted from our Cornish holiday. The pub just a 100 yards away served amazing food, the local shop had the best ice cream with so many flavours. Fresh crab sandwiches from the Harbour cafe have to be tried - so fresh and tasty. Our lovely cottage was quircky, quaint, pretty, so full of character and very comfortable. You are central for the best walks and scenery. My family will be back next year.

What a location! It was a struggle to leave. Can't wait to return

Our holiday experience in Kinsale Cottage was quite simply unsurpassable. We felt at home straightaway and the beauty of Cadgwith captured us from our first glimpse at the harbour. Definitely did not want to leave !

Kinsale is just lovely. All rooms nicely decorated cosy warm and very clean a well fitted kitchen and a lovely comfortable bathroom make the stay extremely enjoyable. Cadgwith is a real gem and the view from the cottage garden out onto the sea and down to the harbour is just tremendeous. I would recommend this place to everbody who likes walking and relaxing in unspoilt most beautiful nature. We stayed two weeks in Kinsale and could have done with a further week!

Lovely, comfortable cottage in a beautiful setting.

Fabulous, characterful and very comfortable cottage in beautiful location. Would highly recommend.

loved it so much that we booked for the whole christmas/new year period next year DURING our stay as we couldn't bear to think that we wouldn't come back!! highly recommend both cottage and area to walkers and people who enjoy peace and quiet by the sea.

Lovely cottage in a fantastic location.

Lovely welcome warm clean but never got that feeling back e.g warmy

A big thank you to Classic Cottages, the owners and the housekeeper for making our stay memorable, comfortable and we hope to be back. We particularly appreciated that the suggestions we made when we stayed in 2014 had been implemented. The cottage is very well equipped and clean. I love the decoration and the attention to detail. It feels like staying in a friend's cottage rather than a impersonal holiday cottage. The cottage is clearly loved by its owners and we love staying here.

Katy the house keeper was there when we arrived and made us feel at home straight issue with anything and felt the photos did the cottage an injustice to the amount of space we all had, all six of us and two dogs.........we loved the location and the additional parking up the hill came in very handy as we used it for both vehicles. We loved every minute of our stay and have all promised ourselves to return to not just cadgwith but that cottage in the future, thank you for sharing it with us.

This cottage invites you in and puts it arms around you. The longer you stay the harder it is to leave, but you have to leave so you can return.

A cosy, comfortable cottage with a contemporary feel.

We loved the location, the cottage was comfortable. We loved the garden view, and the villagers were very friendly which makes a great difference on holiday, we appreciated the wine and biscuits, milk and flowers it a nice touch.

A delightful cottage, we felt instantly at home and Cadgwith is genuinely friendly. Fantastic fresh fish every day from the village shop. What a wonderful holiday we will back.

This is a really fabulous holiday home which I am sure the new owners will make improvements to in time. I would love to stay there again

Thanks for taking the time to review Kinsale, we're glad you had a great holiday. The new Owners have some lovely plans for the cottage and have already upgraded the sitting-room with two new sofas. We hope you'll have the chance to visit again and enjoy the updates first-hand. Tanya, Customer Support

Dream cottage, dream location, can't wait to get back !!!!

Everything was wonderful. Cottage, location, local facilities, people and hearing the sea from the cottage!

The cottage is fantastic and we will be returning same time next year

A fantastic cottage in a wonderful location. Just loved it.

Fabulous house and location.

We had a really good week in Kinsale and found it to be warm, comfortable, full of character and well appointed to cope with our number. The kitchen could do with some updating but other than that we had everything we needed and found it to be a perfect location for walks on the South West coast trail, visiting nearby coves and villages and for evenings in the Cadgwith Cove Inn listening to the folk and Cadgwith singers. The pub is on the up, with the new owners (very friendly) improving it all the time. The mussels and crab from the fish shop in the village are excellent.

Be warned though, if you're tall - duck! Lot's to bang your head on inside. Many stairs to trip over so it if you are slightly infirm then maybe go for somewhere else.

The parking is OK for up to Mondeo size with care.

It was fantastic to be so close to the sea and have a week of peace and quiet, with lots around to do when we wanted it. Go to: Kynance Cove, Gweek Seal sanctuary (but look for vouchers first, there are many available usually) Flambards if you have young children, any of the gardens near Constantine, Helford, Church Cove, Mullion and many more others. Portleven is good for fishing trips but has not much else. Avoid Kennack Sands, Lizard Point unless you really want to stand on the Southerly point or got to one of decent little cafes, and Helston apart from shopping in the supermarkets.

It's a great little place for an out of season break, but can get busy in high season. We'd go back in a shot.

Lovely cottage and great location for a very peaceful holiday

A very lovely place to be!!!!
