In the 25 years that we have been visiting the Lizard, we thought that this was one of the best holiday lets.

July 2020

An incredibly comfortable house, lots of space. Really well equipped, comfortable beds, great bathrooms and kitchen. View is unbeatable and Mullion is a wonderful village.

November 2019

Spotlessly prepped, spacious, comfortable, cosy, well presented and equipped bungalow in lovely quiet location with fabulous views. We’ve visited here several times and it’s good to see improvements being made all the time by the owners. We really like Nantivet and will keep returning. Highly recommended.

April 2019

When I booked Nantivet, I was looking for a house that would be suitable for our now grown up children and their family, which we could use for a family holiday to celebrate my husbands 60th birthday. Nantivet is a beautiful home, wonderfully equipped, and had plenty of space for all of us. Would I recommend this, I most certainly would. It’s also in an ideal location with stunning views, with plenty in the area to meet everyone’s needs.

We run a few rental properties in Australia, including a beachside holiday house. As such, we have to commend the owners of Nantivet for the excellent standard of accommodation they've provided (We've also pinched a few of your ideas!). The place was roomy, bright and airy with stunning views across Mullion harbour towards Mount's Bay. Loved the decor, the quality appliances, the comfy beds (mattresses were perfect) and that amazing wet room (which quickly became the most popular bathroom in the house). A wonderful house to entertain friends, perfectly set up for preparing meals for large groups. Everyone had a great time here. We didn't want to leave. Book it now, you won't be disappointed.

Perfect stay!

July 2018

A wonderful, spacious house with splendid views and all the equipment and facilities one could wish for. Seven of us stayed for a fortnight, ranging in age from seven to seventy four and we all agreed that it was one of the best holidays ever. The weather helped!

May 2018

I wholeheartedly recommend this superbly located, generously-sized and well-equipped accommodation.

November 2017

Our family and friends stayed in Nantivet over New Year 2016/17 we had a wonderful stay and thoroughly enjoyed it. Starting with such an easy booking experience both online and over the phone with the wonderful sales team. The cottage was so well mantained and well equipped. The Housekeeper does a brilliant job. It was immaculately clean, tidy and we were very kindly left some supplies to start us off. It was a wonderful cottage and would highly recommend. Thank you Classic Cottages for a great holiday, we look forward to booking our next trip with you.

Nantivet exceeded our expectations: spacious, comfortable, light-filled and well -equipped. A delightful property, it is situated in a superb spot for exploring the Lizard and provides a welcoming, warm base to return to.

May 2016

This is a very spacious property in a quiet location and with wonderful views.

October 2015

Perfect place to relax, great property with amazing views. Accommodating 4 generations, the whole family loved the bungalow, the terrace was well used even in October.

September 2015

Very comfortable property in wonderful location - peaceful with stunning views.

August 2015

Wonderful views - lovely property.

May 2015

Nantivet is in a great location. Mullion and Mullion Cove are both very attractive, and the location is also great for visiting The Lizard, Porthleven, Penzance and the far west of Cornwall. A major nearby attraction is the South West Coastal footpath, and the section between Mullion Cove and Kynance Cove (easily walkable from Nantivet) is wonderful for both dramatic sea views and the amazing wild flowers on the cliff tops.

May 2015

Really excellent family cottage, very comfortable and well equipped. I always take some kitchen "bits" with me but this time they were not needed.

March 2015

Nantivet is a beautiful cottage in a beautiful part of Cornwall. We were very impressed with the cleanliness and just how well equipped the cottage was. I would certainly recommend this cottage.

October 2014

I wish that I could have given you the normal glowing report on the cottage but as you will see there were a few issues that we thought you should know about. These issues in no way spoilt our holiday and we will be using your services again in the future.

We were really sorry to hear that you had a couple of problems with some of the lighting/missing bulbs, the approach road and the parking/porch area. We've asked the housekeeper to replace any missing bulbs and give the outside porch area a good sweep. The No Through Road is a private road and although not tarmaced, it's normally in good condition. We're going there this week (17 Sept 2014) to update the photos, so we'll certainly check it out then. Tanya, Customer Support

A truly outstanding house in an amazing location. Quality of fixtures and fittings is really high, allowing a comfortable stay. Second visit, this time whether was great and we used the terrace non-stop, last time weather was bad and yet house was still lovely to spend lazy days.

July 2014

This cottage is the perfect place to relax in the most stunning part of Cornwall. You will find all you need as this is a real home from home with a fantastically equipped kitchen complete with traditional weighing scales should you wish to bake! This home and it's setting is more beautiful than the pictures suggest! A truly wonderful break - the worst bit?- leaving!

Nantivet is a gem. Amazing views and an incredibly well equipped holiday home. The whole family loved the inside and outside space. The area provides wonderful walks and fabulous beaches straight out of the front door. There are great places to eat and drink within walking distance - especially Mullion Cove Hotel Bar. There has been such care taken in decorating and furnishing Nantivet and creating a very special place. Thank you to the owners and Classic Cottages - lovely family holiday.
