It's quite simply a unique space in a remarkable setting with astonishing views.

A lovely little place in a great location. Very quiet with everything we needed for a week away. Loved the artwork decorating the place and beautiful views from the top of the beacon which was only a few minutes away!

The location of this property is probably one of the best in Cornwall. The views from nearby are AMAZING as are the walks. If you are staying in good weather this property is a perfect crash pad but if you are staying when wet you are left with only a tiny towel rail to dry clothes as the owners only leave you two logs for the burner and so everything stays damp. The TV is the size of a laptop with a portable aerial that regularly loses signal. The mattress has seen better days and if you aren't a size 12 or below the towels are rather small - the main towels are only just bigger than the hand towels. This property is all location, location, location. For us it was just too small I'm afraid which was a shame. The courtyard is not the picture with the dog in it.

Thanks for the review of Beacon Top Bottom The cottage is compact, as is the television, and we're sorry if this didn't come across in the photos. Do click on the photos to show a larger image and a caption detailing exactly what is shown. We're sorry you didn't find the mattress comfortable, the Owners have replaced this (they are only just across the courtyard and very happy to help with any problems - they had forgotten to top the logs up!). We're sorry that the property wasn't for you, but glad to see that you enjoyed the area and the amazing walking on offer. Tanya, Customer Support

Cosy hideaway from hustle and bustle with beautiful coast right on the doorstep. A nice, small but lively village for all holiday necessities within reach (groceries, tearooms and souvenirs)

This was a beautiful little bolt hole on the Cornish coast. Plenty of walking trails right on the doorstep. Plus a welcoming log-burner to take the chill off the Spring evenings. Would highly recommend a stay in this quaint cottage.

Beacon Top Bottom is a very cosy little cottage with very lovely owners who were happy to help with any issues and we didn't have any at all so 10/10. We highly recommend this cottage to anyone looking to escape and get back to nature. Perfect for a trip at any time of year!

This was our second visit to a lovely cottage, beautifully decorated in a peaceful location. Just a short walk from St Agnes and St Agnes Beacon. The perfect place to get-away from it all. An added bonus was my tour of the owner's farm!

May 2014

the beacon was individual and homely we loved the location and especially all the extra touches . milk beer biscuits and a free tea towel. The outside space was great . Located near the town and good amenities.

A lovely cottage in an ideal location whether you like to walk, cycle or drive. Great views and very peaceful. Ideal for a relaxing break.

April 2014

We loved Beacon Top Bottom. With all its character and Von's amazing artwork it was wonderful. We lived the coziness and how welcome thy made us feel. Great description of how they turned it into what it is and the location was perfect.

October 2013

If you want a very restful holiday choose beacon Top bottom. You can walk to the village which is very friendly , good dog friendly pubs with excellent food.

September 2013

Absolutely fantastic little cottage in a very charming setting.

August 2013

Beacon Top Bottom is a lovely, tucked away, oasis of peace. Perfect for getting away from the demands of everyday life. Being near the top of St Agnes Beacon everywhere you walk is downhill, just be prepared for the hike back up! We came home very relaxed from the gentler pace of life and much fitter for all the walking. Plenty of dog friendly beaches within easy travelling distance and the pubs are dog friendly too. Highly Recommended

July 2013

It's a quiet area of Cornwall with good access to coastal paths. St Agnes is a small village with everything you need but not everything your don't!

June 2013

A most charming cottage, full of character, which exceeded our expectations. Very friendly, generous and helpful owners made us feel very welcome.

May 2013
