We had a wonderful stay at the Summerhouse, Malcolm & Sally provided everything you could need ans we will definately stay again.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Summerhouse; the lovely views; the garden; the animals; the fresh bread, eggs etc on arrival (particularly loved the home made marmalade). Malcolm and Sally are great hosts. The peace and quiet, birdsong etc. was just what we needed after a particularly busy time. We also enjoyed the hot tub - a new experience for us!! Would definitely like to return.

Lovely view looking out to sea out one door the other is overlooking a pond and animals. The hosts are very welcoming. They set you up with a lovely welcome package fresh bread, eggs, milk & butter. The Summer House has everything you need.

The Summerhouse was exactly as represented on the Classic Cottages site.

  • Beautiful quiet location, wonderful views, friendly animals.

  • Lovely flowers, plus essential supplies and fresh home-made bread on arrival!

*Tastefully decorated, warm & cosy, comfortable bed, & everything required was available.

  • Hot-tub was exactly the right temperature, and was wonderful, even in the rain!!

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the 'Summer House' It is a delightful, peaceful, cosy and well appointed nest for two. Relaxing in the hot tub and admiring the distant sea waves from the garden added much to our stay. Thanks to Sally and Malcolm for their warm welcome and 'add-ons' during our stay.

A beautifully fitted out cottage - small but with everything you need. Great views over Perrenporth. A lovely relaxing holiday made even better due to the exclusive use of the owners hot tub.

Lovely get away, chilling in the hot tub under the stars is something I will never forget.

Nothing was too much trouble for the owners they were very knowledgeable and we were well looked after.

Fresh milk, bread and butter on arrival was also a very nice touch

Very good value for money

Big Thank you once again to Sally and Malcolm, warm welcome, home made bread and marmalade on arrival, milk on tap. Perfect break.

The cottage is excellent , set in beautiful surroundings, Sally and Malcolm the owners are a delight, helpful and full of local knowledge, very easy to get along with and have a chat, What can I say about the animals?The icing on the cake, what a beautiful sight when I opened the curtains in the morning, what better way to start the day,

An absolutely idyllic cottage in a perfect, rural location with fantastic sea views. The owners are absolutely lovely and they bake the most delicious bread (plus jam and fresh eggs from the farm). The cottage is very well-equipped and a perfect match for anyone wanting peace and quiet while being close to the sea. The llamas, sheep and goats are an added bonus. We'll be back!

We absolutely fell in love with the Summer House. It's in a great location with beautiful views over Perranporth and a good base for days out to St Ives, Newquay and more. Malcolm and Sally were fantastic hosts, and the animals were great entertainment (especially the baby goats). Sally's home made bread and jam are to die for, and their chickens make the best eggs! The Summerhouse will certainly hold a place in our hearts and we hope to visit again.

What a find! Brilliant cottage, wonderful rural situation, but close to Perranporth. Friendly helpful owners.

Faultless holiday, looking forward to returning at some point soon.

This has been a Perfect break in a Perfect location. Hosts and property were everything we had read about on the Classic site. By Sunday I had rebooked for next August and already that feels like miles off ! Would go back tomorrow. Special thanks to Sally and Malcolm for making our stay so relaxing and welcoming. Great Hot Tub when you get back from a long walk. Loved it... Love Cornwall.

Cottage in great location, the owners Malcolm and Sally were the perfect hosts , would certainly go and stay there again.

The Summer House was a gem away from the hustle and bustle set in a perfect spot with sea views and local to many places to visit and so peaceful.Malcome and Sally were perfect hosts and not intrusive. Sallys homemade marmalade just yum and hot bread on arrival and fresh eggs from the chickens.I loved the goats and Alpacas and my daily visits from thier dog.Would highly recommend a visit but as stated not suitable for mobility problems but bed just a little low for me.

We had a lovely time at the Summer house. Amazing views, chilling in the hot tub. Lovely garden and loved watching the animal. The owners provided us with fresh homemade bread, eggs and milk.

What an amazing holiday. The summerhouse is such a beautiful little property set in a huge garden with sea views. It is charmingly decorated and has everything you need for a perfect holiday - including bathrobes for your nightly stroll back from the hot tub. The owners are truly lovely people who made our stay very special and we can't wait to return!

Brilliant welcoming hosts

Summerhouse is a very special place, so relaxing and comfortable. It was our second stay there and we'll definitely do it again. If it wasn't that we were missing our little grandson, Alasdair, we wouldn't have wanted to leave.

Ideal for a relaxing stay with excellent walks from the house along the coast as well as inland.

The Summer House was everything and more that I hoped it would be. I can't say enough nice things. I was looking forward to meeting the animals and got to help feed the alpacas. Rastus the goat was a real personality as were the roosters and chickens. The cottage itself is darling and so thoughtfully and sweetly presented. I loved all the little decorative touches everywhere you looked. Especially the doorstops and big stuffed lamb. Everything was immaculate and the owners were such a delight. Very warm and welcoming!!! The gardens, views, patios and outdoor furniture were also wonderful!!! This house might be a tight squeeze for one or more large or tall people or a couple who are not in love anymore. ????

Malcolm and Sally were very welcoming. The Summer House is in a very peaceful location with a wonderful view over Perranporth. House has everything you could possibly need and ideal for 2 people.

Malcom and Sally the hosts were great and friendly and gave us some really useful recommendations for days out and where to get great food the provisions on arrival were a unexpected delight and the freshly made bread did not last long as once I started I could not stop the veiw across the bay was great and Linda loved having a chat with the Alpacas chickens and pigs Thanks for a really great holiday

It is probably one of best equipt self catering property we've had and very close to perfection . We would recommend it too anyone it's fab. So relaxing with animals and running water and garden. Also central to all South cornwall destinations.

Loved this charming cottage and really appreciated the warm welcome from Malcom and Sally. The quiet and chilled surroundings really promotes relaxation and my husband and I really enjoyed this home from home.

Thank you.

The whole experience was fantastic, from the accommodation to the hosts. Could not have wished for anything more. The summer house exceeded our expectations, so lovely and comfortable n very well stocked, no need to take anything with you. The hosts checked on us but were totally unobtrusive. We loved it and will be booking this accommodation again

The Owners are very friendly and helpful - Nice fresh bread and homemade jam on arrival. We were able to relax and had a wonderful time. Excelent base to go walking and explore the surounding area. Very nice spot.. bit jealous.

Our stay at The Summer House was fantastic. A great spot to base yourself to explore the local area. Fabulous views, lovely hot tub, well equipped! The owners are very lovely and the little touch of home made goodies on arrival was a brilliant gesture.

A very cosy, safe little cottage. With everything you need a great place. Highly recommend it.

Lovely couple that made us feel welcome and a perfect little get away for the two of us

Our holiday in the Summer House was idyllic and rejuvenating. It is a lovely place to stay and explore the surrounding coastline. Our hosts were amazing to talk to and we felt lucky that they shared their life with us for a week. We will always remember our time there.

The cottage, views, are out of this world the owners are lovely and welcoming perfect for a couple getaway will definitely be coming back

The Summer House is beautiful, the perfect retreat. Fabulous location and views. The owners are so friendly and welcoming. A fantastic holiday location.

A glorious dinky little cottage just made for two. With lovely garden and a sea view, this place offers peace and relaxation. The summer house is fitted out with everything you could need for your stay. You arrive to a lovely welcome pack of freshly baked home made bread, butter, eggs, milk, jam and marmalade and you are provided with toiletries and kitchen consumables so you can travel light. The hosts are lovely and you get to meet and feed the animals if you wish. Lying in the hot tub with a view to the sea whilst the sun goes down is just delightful.

Lovely little property, perfect for the 2 of us wanting an away from it all bolt hole for our honeymoon. Superb location overlooking Perranporth and the beach with the sound of the sea in the distance providing the perfect sound track. The owners were absolutely lovely and provided home made bread, jam and marmalade on arrival and couldn't have been more friendly and accommodating. Would definitely return!

The Summer House was delightful, the setting amazing. The owners (Malcolm and Sally) kind and welcoming. We loved it. It was homely and relaxing. Top marks for everything. It was a lovely holiday.

We stayed at the Summer House during our honeymoon and it is perfectly situated for that purpose. Our hosts were very friendly (excellent welcome with bread, milk, and jam). Even though the house is next to the owner's house, we never felt disturbed - unless we wanted to have a Chat about the great alpacas or sheep. As for the rest: The view is stunning, the whirlpool perfect after hiking along the coastal path, and we would definitely love to return one day.

Spent a really relaxing week here, lovely house for two, good location and excellent hot tub!

Lovely views, light warm and cosy, compact.

Our stay at The Summer House was amazing, a fantastic way to celebrate our honeymoon. When we arrived there were newborn lambs on the farm and Malcolm let us have a cuddle with one of them and feed the other animals. Wonderful sea views and they even made us another loaf of bread on request. Lovely quiet location and only 5 minutes from the beach. Would definitely recommend.

We had an amazing week at the Summer House. It started with a very warm welcome, and the cottage is just wonderful. So many lovely details, a garden that we really enjoyed. If you look for recreation, then this is the right place for you. The only things you may hear are the wind or the lambs - nature instead of traffic noise. We can recommend the Summer House without any restriction. The only thing to say is that one week is a little short.

The Summerhouse is fabulous, it has everything you could need and more to make your stay enjoyable.

Every element of our stay was brilliant, we can't wait to go back!

The Summer House is a joy to stay in; a home from home, except better! There is surely no better way to spend a sunny afternoon than relaxing in the garden with the barbecue going, whilst listening to the birds singing and admiring the sea view - our hosts were wonderful and anticipated our every need, the only downside was that we were only there for a week!

We see us next year. So long. Cheers.

Our stay at the Summer House was a very special time and our hosts made us feel really welcome, settling us in with home made bread, jam and marmalade! Nestled away but close to Perranporth, it was a great base to explore Cornwall from.

The Summer House had everything we needed (and more), and we can't wait to stay again.

Amazing little holiday destination. Perfect house, perfect owners.

Lovely accommodating couple that own the summer house, can't do enough for you to make your stay memorable. Will definitely stay again when we visit that area next!

Would recommend this place to all couples. It was a lovely stay in a perfect little hide away with quality views. Also topped by such welcoming owners who couldn't be better hosts. Will be back!

It was utterly perfect!

A wonderful place, lovely hosts.

If you like the Cornish landscape, cute farm animals, a brilliant sea view and beach life or nature trips added with warm British hospitality - this is the perfect place to stay and to relax!
