Property as described on the website, bright and spacious. Location great close to the village with nice restaurants and walkong distance to Lizard Point. Owner popped round to check everything was OK and complimentary scones at their cafe was a nice touch. Would definitely return if we stay in that area again.

Brilliant location for coastal walking and exploring Cornwall. Cottage was nice and comfortable with a nicely kept garden.

Great location Top notch cleanliness Well maintained

We have been lucky enough over the years to visit many places both abroad and at home in the Uk

The Tara cottage is one of the nicest places we have stayed in and hope that we can revisit (in our retirement) in the not to distant future

Hats off to the classic cottage group and proprietors for making this such an enjoyable holiday

Thank you

Beautiful property, fully equipped for modern family living in a spectacular area. Lovely complimentary cream tea from owners cafe! Home away from home!

A beautiful light and spacious cottage in such a pretty and quiet location, very well equipped and perfect for our family of five. Stunning coastal views nearby on the coastal path, quiet coves, so many beaches, just the right amount of local amenities. We were very sad to leave! Thank you so much.

We had a great week away in Cornwall and the accommodation was excellent. The bungalow is spacious and has everything needed to make a holiday comfortable.

We had a lovely stay at Tara Cottage! We were so surprised at how much there was to make our self catering holiday an easy one. Lots of clean pots and pans, cooking utensils.. we made good use of the washing machine and over all found it a home from home! Would love to stay again! Thanks for having us..

We had a lovely week in Tara. The cottage is very comfortable, well equipped and really clean too. The location is excellent for walks around the Lizard peninsula. We know the area really well and will be returning to this cottage. It's perfect.

Cottage is in an ideal location for coastal walks and village centre. Would like to return again.

It’s a nice property and we enjoyed our stay very much. It was clean and well set up. The gadgets and cookware in the cottage do need an upgrade though. The owner Peter was extremely kind and hospitable.

The only issue was that our checkout time was at 10am according to the email from classic cottages but the owners expected us to checkout at 9am for some reason.

The Lizard is a hidden gem & this property gives you access straight onto the coastal walks. I wouldn’t recommend for young children as the coastal paths are steep & undulating in places but ideal for children 11+. Lovely owners, clean, light & airy property.

A wonderful two week holiday in Tara. Loved the bungalow, so beautifully furnished, very comfortable, well equipped and also so light and spacious. One of the best holiday properties we have stayed in over a period of 20 years. Very friendly and helpful owners of the bungalow.

Tara is the most comfortable bungalow to stay in. So light and spacious and such lovely fittings and fixtures. A wonderful bungalow.

Wonderful stay in this well equipped cottage. Very peaceful location with beautiful walks and scenery on the doorstep. Really enjoyed discovering the hidden coves from the coastal path and watching the seals. Plenty to see and do and hope to return again to continue exploring.

Fantastic and relaxing place to spend the week on the dramatic lizard peninsula. Very comfortable and spacious with a well equipped kitchen and everything you might need for a short break or longer. Lizard village has a range of good shops for gifts or everyday essentials. Fantastic pub with great food. Trip to polpeor cafe right on the very tip of the lizard is a must visit stop for a bite to eat and a cuppa or something more filling. Awesome dramatic views of the rock strewn sea around the lizard coastline from every window makes this a magical place to stop and recharge before exploring more of Cornwall.

Perfect for us as a couple, and plenty of space for a family. An easy stroll into Lizard Town for shopping and dining. Lovely walks within easy reach. A very comfortable and well-equipped holiday home.

Lovely location.

This cottage is amazing - five star - spotless and very comfortable. The host was first class. The cottage is 5 minutes walk to Lizard village and within easy access to the peninsula and coastal path. We had an amazing week in Cornwall. Well done Classic Cottages

I would recommend this cottage in a heart beat; a beautiful spacious cottage in an excellent location. We enjoyed the many stunning walks across the lizard peninsular, that can be taken right from the doorstep. The village pubs and shops catered for a number of delicious fish suppers during our stay. The owners respected our privacy, yet made themselves known should we have encountered any problems (which we didn't), and the complimentary cream tea at the most southerly café was an enjoyable added bonus.

We had a lovely stay in this fantastic cottage. It was cosy and warm and exactly as described. It is situated perfectly for some lovely local walks and to explore the whole South West.

Photos deceive and appliances not working properly. Musty smells especially bedding - hard uncomfortable beds. Cot unacceptable for use for a baby dirty and so smelly. Expecting a solid wooden cot other than a travel one - needs renewing ASAP. Wasn’t even opened up to be cleaned or aired just let from a previous use - not good.

Reply from Classic Cottages

We were really suprised and sorry to see your feedback after your holiday - Tara normally scores very highly in terms of customer feedback and we'd certainly not recognise it from your description. We do advertise a travel cot at this cottage but we're sorry if you missed this. We're obviously concerned about your comments and will investigate further. Tanya, Customer Support

Tara as well as it's beautiful surrounding is a place to remain in the heart!

Tara Cottage is a real home from home and the owners have taken time to ensure all your needs are catered for and are on hand to deal with any issues. Tara Cottage is set in a beautiful location on the Lizard Peninsula ideal for exploring the area and is suitable for both families and groups of friends. I would recommend staying at Tara if you are wishing to visit this beautiful part of England.

A beautifully furnished and decorated bungalow in a central location in the village which has everything you need for a very comfortable holiday.

The location is probably the best we've experienced. It's possible to do a gorgeous circular walk using parts of the SW coastal path, as long or short as you like. The cottage is on a quiet lane, yet a short and level walk to the village centre, with several choices of places to eat (and a pasty shop even closer!). Easy and fast access to main A-road north to Helston and rest of Cornwall, so it's not "down a lane, down a lane, will I meet a tractor?"

Lovely peaceful location only 5 minutes walk from the local shops and cafes.

Would like to return.

Another excellent holiday in a lovely cottage.

nice place/nice location/recommended.

My definition of a good holiday location is one where you do not need to jump in your car every day. The Lizard really fits the bill in this regard. The village has excellent grocery shops and fish+chips as well as a couple of decent pubs and ice-cream shops. There are plenty of paths to walk and a couple of small beaches in easy walking distance. The cottage is in a perfect location with easy access to the village and the coastal path. It's a great base for staying put and doing nothing or for exploring the coastal paths or further afield. The cooking facilities are excellent and the lounge is spacious and comfortable.

An excellent bungalow, with every possible amenity/facility. The situation is superb and it always feels like 'home from home.'....a wonderful place to stay in a beautiful part of the county.

After 20 years of self catering, this cottage is one of the best for cleanliness, location and facilities.

Great holiday accommodation one of the best if not the best I have ever stayed at. Large lounge/diner with sea views, Large well fitted out kitchen again with sea views. Good size bedrooms, large showers. fittings and furniture of a very high standard and a nice garden for the grand children to play in. Great for all the amenities so no driving if you don't want to. Owners very friendly and helpful. If you go try the free cream tea it's to die for with a great location..

lovely airy property,

Tara is a comfortable and well-equipped bungalow - ample space for 6. Close to village amenities and coastal footpath. The sun lights up the kitchen in the mornings and the lounge in the afternoon and evenings. Perfect for a family and relaxing holiday.

Perfect location for walking the cliff paths around The Lizard.

Great location, very quiet but walking distance to eateries/shops/takeaways. Lovely walks, beautiful scenery and plenty to do.

Lovely house which suited the whole family . Could not have found a better place to stay!

Comfortable house in excellent location - easy access to the village (ice-creams, groceries, pubs, fish&chip shop) to Kynance Cove and to numerous coastal paths and small coves and beaches. Lovely cream-tea at the most southerly point.

A wonderful cottage in a superb location providing us with a relaxing and enjoyable holiday for the whole family, thank you.

We had a very enjoyable stay at Tara. Lovely accommodation and very comfortable. A good walk from the property to the owner's cafe which is thoroughly recommended gorgeous cream tea thank you so much.

This has to be the best cottage we have ever stayed in. So clean and tastefully furnished. The owners went out of their way to make us feel at home and the delicious free cream tea at the Polpeor Cafe (which has stunning views) as well as great food saw us eating there all week! Well done to all, we will be booking again.

Perfect location for a family holiday. The house can accommodate 6 with ease. All of the rooms are spacious and have good storage. There is loads of space in the house and in the garden. The clincher though is that it is only 3 minutes walk from the Lizard village, where there's a post office, an excellent butchers/store, newsagent/general store and several ice-cream shops, not to mention excellent fish-and-chip shop, 2 pubs and several cafes/restaurants. It was great to be able to send the children out for an ice-cream after dinner. The house is also less than 10 minutes walk from a sandy beach and 15/20 from a rocky beach, both of which our Children enjoy. Our 5th visit to the Lizard, and our 3rd to this comfortable house.

So glad we chose this property. The photographs show exactly what you get - no disappointment. Generous rooms, beautiful decor and everything we needed was supplied. Really couldn't fault the property or the welcome. The cream tea was a lovely touch and much appreciated.
