Prospect Cottage was lovely with fresh flowers around the cottage & lots of the hosts art which was unique. It is just off a busy road so a car is essential. Would recommend bringing extra towels as ventilation is poor in the bathroom.

Prospect Cottage is a lovely little place to stay. The location was perfect for exploring my favourite areas of Cornwall and it was situated in a quiet place. The owners, David and Sheila, were amazing! Very helpful and saved our plans on one occasion. They are so friendly and we very much enjoyed our conversations with them. The cottage was so cosy,clean, kitchen was super well equipped ( we love to cook) and the owners artwork can be seen in each room which made it even more special. Thoughtful touch of a bottle of red was also very much appreciated. Will definitely be returning as soon as possible!

Thank you for a lovely stay at Prospect cottage. Cosy and comfortable with a vey well equipped kitchen for such a small space and pretty cottage bedroom. I loved the individual artistic touches such as the decorative leaves in the bedroom. Once mastered, the wood burner, along with electric radiators, effectively kept the out the autumnal evening cool. The enclosed rear garden area was very useful for the dog, as escape proof, and also must be a wonderful place to sit out and enjoy in the summer, though weather not quite balmy enough to make use of in late October. Very helpful and friendly owners - thank you for the much appreciated welcome of a bottle of wine and delicious pastry! Though the setting is very rural it is a just short drive to reach Penzance and well placed for exploring the attractions of the whole of this part of Cornwall. One tip - do arrive first time in daylight as much trickier to find the turning off main road in the dark.

This is a little gem: comfortable, well equipped and brilliantly located for exploring in and around Penzance and over to St Ives. The hosts are exceptionally helpful without being intrusive.

Great cottage and location.

April 2019

A pretty cottage with welcoming helpful owners

March 2019

There was a warm welcome from friendly owners, plus a bottle of wine and vases of flowers dotted around in this very pretty and peaceful cottage. Perfect base for many beautiful Cornish Spring gardens and the Cape Cornwall coast. Nearby St Just is lovely too, with its amazing church.

October 2018

We have loved our stay at Prospect Cottage, Sheila and David made us most welcome, without being intrusive, scones, jam, cream and a bottle of wine welcomed us, so thoughtful, did not need the wood burner on, as heaters were affecient,peaceful surroundings,and lovely area to be in for travelling around Cornwall, could not fault it, and highly recommend, also our little dog loved her morning walks in the fields.

September 2018

Beautiful cottage, made to feel very welcome by the owners - helpful but not in any way intrusive. Ideal location for exploring Cornwall - at most a 20 minute drive away from most major landmarks in the area. Would definitely recommend and fully intending to come back next year. Incredibly peaceful, the perfect little getaway.

August 2018

Homely, Cosy and beautifully decorated. Not ideal for toddlers.

June 2018

Please add the following if it helps to encourage other people who like cycling or wanted to enjoy a quiet holiday:- The owners David and Sheila are the most delightful people. It was a joy to meet them. David let me store my bike safely next to the cottage and was able to offer useful knowledge on cycling in that area. The cottage is a tranquil quiet haven filled with Sheila's beautiful pottery. I couldn't have wishes for a nicer place to stay.

June 2018

A very special place full of tranquillity and charm. Decorated simply and beautifully.

May 2018

Delightful peaceful & comfortable cottage with everything you'd need. The owners are lovely and make you feel welcome. A beautiful little gem surrounded by nature away from the madding crowds. We found it perfectly located and easy to find. The ceramics and tiles created by the owners are lovely touches. The welcome bottle of wine & corniche biscuits, fresh wild flowers & a doggy biscuit was a perfect touch. We'd stay again and have no hesitation in recommending friends.

April 2018

We had a wonderful stay at Prospect Cottage, in such a beautiful park of the world. The cottage is so pretty and the Owners so friendly and helpful. It really is in the most relaxing place, a short drive from St Just and Penzance. Lovely beaches nearby including Sennen with great walks to Pendeen Lighthouse along the coastal path. I can’t fault this property! Thank you

October 2017

I fell in love with this cottage from the photos on the website and the reality met all my expectations. I loved the hand-made tiles, plates and bowls and the wildflowers and bottle of wine that greeted me on my arrival. The owners (next door) were very friendly and helpful but not intrusive.

August 2017

Prospect Cottage is perfect for a couple who want a cosy, romantic stay in a beautifully decorated cottage. Situated for visiting coastline and gardens. Owners were helpful but not at all intrusive. A beautiful cottage.

August 2017

My partner and I had an absolutely brilliant time in Cornwall and Prospect Cottage was an excellent base to stay. All the tourist locations were about 20 minutes drive and the cottage itself was great value for money. It has everything you need and expect from a home away from home, the facilities are good quality and it is a nice relaxing area.

As a bonus, the hosts were delightful people who lived next door and were willing to help in any way they could. I would definitely recommend booking the Prospect Cottage!

May 2017

We really enjoyed our stay. The cottage is compact but comfortable and the location could not be bettered fpr tranquility and peace. The tiles in the bathroom are beautifully painted ( by the owner?) and the fresh flowers left for us were lovely. The track down to the cottage is bordered by sprays of wild flowers. We even heard a cuckoo singing nearby one morning! What more could one ask for? Close to Penzance. St Ives etc

May 2017

We really loved this cosy cottage which although it is small is not cramped or dingy which old cottages sometimes are. Great location for visiting South Cornwall.

April 2017

Would recommend Prospect cottage as ideal for a couple wanting a relaxing break in a very nice location, and within easy reach of some beautiful beaches and all tourist attractions in the area. Andy and Pauline Hose.

April 2017

Very friendly and helpful landlord. Beautiful, arty house. Lovely fresh flowers and bottle of wine very welcome too. Homely feel. Wonderful quiet spot, with lovely moors and beaches nearby, but not isolated. St Just very local. Well worth a stay, would recommend to friends or family. Thank you.

December 2016

Very friendly hosts , spotlessly clean and tasteful decor but not really suitable for our mad spaniel in bad weather as close to marshy areas! However we love Cornwall and always enjoy it.

September 2016

We had a lovely warm welcome from Mrs. Williams, and very much enjoyed our stay at the cottage. It was well equiped and had a lovely 'cottagy' feel. It was light and airy...not at all gloomy as some cottages can be.

Also it is in an excellent location for visiting the far western part of Cornwall. We really enjoyed many cliff walks and photographing the tin mines in the area.

September 2016

Mr and Mrs Williams were extremely welcoming and helpful without being over-bearing. Nice touches such as a bottle of wine for the humans and dog biscuits for the dog were much appreciated. The cottage is sympathetically and stylishly decorated with considerate and practical appliances. The cottage has a nice feel and I was very happy there.

August 2016

This is a lovely little cottage in a fantastic location, a peaceful spot with lots of great walks and places to explore not far away. The owners are very friendly and helpful, we received a warm welcome and knew they were there if we needed anything during our stay. The garden is a real sun trap and lovely place for lunch on a sunny day.

May 2016

Lovely cottage, pretty and comfortable, ideally situated for access to every coast and the coastal path, as well as other places of interest.

July 2013

Prospect Cottage is a fantastic base for exploring Cornwall; close to fantastic beaches and beautiful coastal towns. The cottage is cosy and very quiet, so the perfect place to relax.

July 2013

The cottage is lovely decorated and exceptionally clean. Central location so every spot in Penwith is reached within a short ride. Friday changeover is superb as the main traffic is on Saturday. Everyone who has ever queued at Temple or Victoria will appreciate it.
