Mrs Stanley August 2023
Amazingly equipped property, everything had been thought of, would definitely book again. Excellent location for exploring the surrounding area
Mr Littlewood July 2023
A very beautiful holiday home. Everything has been considered from the largest to the smallest detail, e.g. the key hooks and torches! The decor is lovely and the furnishings are all so comfortable. This is probably the most perfect place we have stayed in bar none. We all loved it and would definitely come again circumstances permitting. We liked everything about the property, the furnishings, decor, kitchen utensils and appliances, and extremely comfortable bedrooms. The accommodation was also nice and spacious and gave each person alot of privacy, including the downstairs utility room and study....And all the other additional extras! Everything was provided for very thoughtfully. Just lovely!!!
Mrs Le Grand May 2023
We really enjoyed our stay at Coastal Retreat. The property was very clean and the owners had thought of everything we might need. A short walk takes you down to Swanpool beach and the coast path to Falmouth or Maenporth. The beautiful gardens of Trebah, Glendurgan and Enys are a short drive away. A lovely setting for a relaxing holiday.
Ms Howell September 2022
A fantastic location, only 3 minutes' walk from the coast path. Lovely not to have to use the car much! Sofas are more comfortable than they look in the picture! The living space is fairly cosy so bear that in mind if you are a large party. Kitchen is also small but very well equipped. We had the downstairs super-king bed and it was really comfy, with a lovely bathroom next door. We didn't use the garden space at all as we had very mixed weather. If you are coming in autumn or winter, be prepared for the garden not to get much sun at all. The house is very stylishly furnished with great attention to detail, no sea views to speak of but you do feel you are in a coastal location!

Ms Lea July 2022
Our third year at Coastal Retreat and we continue to return. It's perfect for our family. From the welcome pack to the fully equipped kitchen to the beautifully laid out garden. We continue to leave the car in the garage and explore the area on foot and ferry. This time we ventured by ferry to Place and the walk was spectacular. Well worth the trip. And this time we managed to get a reservation at Hooked on the Rocks. Great food and great views. See you next year!

Mr James July 2022
We race yachts at various places all over Europe; Coastal Retreat was among the very best we have ever stayed in. Somewhat expensive but worth it.
Mrs Thomas April 2022
So clean and well equipped. Excellent location for seaside and coastal path. Family of 3 generations very much enjoyed our stay.

It's so lovely to read that Coastal Retreat was the perfect setting for your family break away. We'd love to welcome you back in the future. Julie, Customer Support
Mr Warren October 2021
The level of cleanliness, comfort and equipment found at Coastal Retreat is absolutely amazing. We found the beds to be extremely comfortable, and the property is very well maintained.
Mr Hadley July 2021
A delightful holiday home with thoughtful additions like the beach equipment, bbq, garage that can fit large car! Very comfortable stay.
Mrs Keen June 2021
First time with Classic Cottages - a very positive experience that we will repeat.
Mr Wood May 2021
Great cottage in a great location. We can’t speak highly enough of the property, amenities provided and things to do and explore in the area. Spend a little time making a plan and you can’t help but have a great break!
Mr Brunger May 2021
This cottage is ideally situated for access to the coastal footpath or further afield by road. It was very clean and tidy with Covid hand sanitizer to welcome you on arrival. We ate one night at The Cove restaurant in Maenporth which was a very special meal in a lovely location only 5 minutes drive away. We would definitely stay here again if heading down to Cornwall in the future ... many fond memories were revived of family times near Falmouth on the Roseland Peninsula. Thank you.
Mr Maunder December 2020
Well appointed house with well designed furnishings - kitchen is very well equipped and has everything anybody would need.
Parking! If three couples or large family have more than two cars then parking is a nightmare with the existing houses all very cramped together. Parking is basically limited to inside the garage and on the drive immediately outside of the garage. You cannot park immediately outside the house as all surrounding houses have at least two cars if not three and a car is continuously parked outside the house!
All bedrooms are big enough to take super king size beds and this property would benefit from all three bedrooms having them be it zip and link or full super-kingsize.

Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a review - it's great to see that you found the house well appointed and equipped. There are two parking spaces advertised here - one in the garage and one on the drive as you identified. Sorry that you found some other neighbours had parked in front of the house, all properties have their own allocated parking like Coastal Retreat. Tanya, Customer Support
Mr Higgins October 2020
Excellent property, extremely well equipped with quality fittings. Perfect location for walkers and golfers (a 3 wood and a wedge to the course!!). Would highly recommend.
Mr Burley July 2020
Loved our stay, Great property, Great Location. Property was so well equipped, really clean and just a great place to relax and unwind.
Mrs Bull August 2019
Great house Great location Great holiday
Mrs Peters July 2019
This really was a perfect getaway - plenty of space for 6 adults. Everything had been thought of to ensure our stay was successful. A beautiful property.
Ms Lea July 2019
We had an amazing week in a brilliantly appointed and maintained house. As keen explorers it was great for us to be able to leave the car parked up for days on end and rely on our own legs and local ferries to get around. And it was an excellent base for when we did go further afield. And a great spot to chill out when we weren't charging round. We will definitely return to Coastal Retrear to visit all the places we didn't get chance to see.

Mr Morgan July 2019
A very well appointed property, lovingly decorated & furnished. Every bit of equipment we could have asked for & more. The showers were sensational! A great location with Swanpool beach a stones throw away & in easy reach of the lovely town of Falmouth. Plenty of supermarkets, shops, pubs, restaurants & beaches nearby. A wonderful base for getting around Cornwall.
Ms Tillier June 2019
Lovely property - exactly as described! We had a very relaxing week, and will definitely be returning.
Mrs Foxall May 2019
Absolutely stunning property equipped with everything we needed and more! The location was perfect and we loved our stay here - can’t wait to come back
Mr Wright April 2019
Astoundingly well equipped and all of a good quality. Highly recommended.
Ms Berry April 2019
We enjoyed a fantastic week in the well located and beautifullly decorated Coastal retreat, perfectly placed for walks towards Falmouth and Maenporth beach. The house was very well equipped even down to bucket and spades & crabbing lines which the children used on the pontoon at the Pandora Inn while we enjoyed a lovely cold beer. The Lizard and Helford river are in easy reach offering up a multitude of options for a week or mores holiday with plenty of lovely pubs and restaurants in the vicinity.
Mr Warren March 2019
The property exceeded our expectations, by a large margin. We feel that the picture of the garden gives the impression that that the garden is small, which it isn't, it is huge! Also there is no mention of the covered outside space adjacent to the very large and extremely well stocked utility room, which is ideal to sit out in during less than perfect weather. This is a fabulous house. It is by far the best property we have stayed at in Cornwall.
Mrs Viney December 2018
A lovely, well equipped house with everything you would need for a very comfortable stay. The house had plenty of room for 3 generations and was exceptionally clean and welcoming.
Ms Hernon April 2018
Stunning house with all the little things thought of to make our holiday perfect. Many stairs so probably not suitable for people with mobility issues.

It was great to hear that you had a perfect stay. We appreciate that as a four storey property this may not be suitable for people with mobility issues. We're always happy to give additional information to help you make the best choice. Alison, Customer Support
Mrs Taylor March 2018
A fantastic cottage- immaculate and wonderfully equipped.
Mrs Hempstead February 2018
Excellent property. Very clean with everything you could need and extra. Nice welcome pack which is a nice personal touch.
Mrs Cornwall December 2017
Well equipped, modern, clean home. We couldn’t fault it.
Mr Williams December 2017
Very well presented modern property, would recommend to anybody who wants to visit Cornwall. 5Star.
Mrs Bone October 2017
This was our third visit to Coastal Retreat and it won't be our last. There was a superb welcome tray awaiting our arrival. The property has a real wow factor and you can see the sea from the balcony and the master bedroom. We were lucky enough to have beautiful Cornish weather in late October and early November and were able to make use of the balcony, quite simply, it's amazing!
Mr Moon October 2017
The house was stunning with lovely views. It made a great base for us to explore around Cornwall. Having a beach so close was a bonus for small children. Would definitely recommend.
Mrs Summers August 2017
Fantastically well presented property with everything you could need for a comfortable stay! Lots of extra touches such as Cornwall provisions, equipment for use at the beach, and dvd and games entertainment for use in the cottage. Lots of space for the whole family. Definitely hope to visit again, and may stay longer than a week next time!
Mr Reed July 2017
Beautifully appointed; a definite home from home. Ideally located for exploring this area of Cornwall. Very good to have space for 2 cars (ie. garage and driveway). Very comfortable beds with quality bed linen and towels. Incredibly clean, and well resourced and equipped. Lovely 'welcome' package, which was truly welcoming. Highly recommended
Mrs Gross June 2017
It was a pleasure to stay in such a lovely holiday home. Loved all the furnishings, pictures, mirrors and ornaments dotted around all helped to make it feel homely. Very enjoyable stay for us.
Mrs Buchanan May 2017
Fantastic weeks holiday - is a superb home. Buchanan and Burrow family.
Mrs Slade April 2017
super property, lots of extra thoughtful touches just enjoyed our second stay, hope to return
Mrs Summerfield February 2017
A beautiful property.Close to beaches and Falmouth.
Mr Ford February 2017
Thank you for a lovely warm, comfortable stay in a well equipped house in a lovely location. Beautiful overall presentation.
Mrs Carr November 2016
We have stayed in many Coastal Retreats and this ticks all the boxes for quality accommodation and excellent location .
Mrs Haigh June 2016
I would highly recommend Coastal Retreat for a relaxing holiday. The property is extremely well maintained, clean and provides everything you could possibly need (whatever the weather!) and more. The furnishings are comfortable and along with the decor, tasteful and of high quality. A good location for walking into Falmouth and for walks along the coastal paths, discovering beautiful beaches along the way. All of the attractions of West Cornwall are easily accessible - although driving around the district during peak season could be difficult! Once again, Classic Cottages have served us well!
Ms Collins June 2016
Beautiful house and very well equipped with quality furniture and appliances.
Mr Whitehand April 2016
All in all a brilliant house, stylish, contemporary, quirky split level design with plenty of room for us all and extremely well equipped. Neighbours very friendly. We really enjoyed the stay and will definitely book again.
Mrs Slade March 2016
Loved Coastal Retreat, great location and superbly kitted out for all weathers. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend. One of the best places we've stayed in Cornwall and we've been trying out different areas and different companies for over 20 years. We will return!
Mrs Collett June 2015
We loved everything about Coastal Retreat. We only wished we had booked for longer!
Mr Markwick June 2015
Superb property. One of the best we have stayed in. Very spacious, loved garden and sunloungers..
Dr McCollum May 2015
Spacious house,not really a cottage.
Mrs Jenkin September 2014
Mrs Bone August 2014
Coastal Retreat was such a delight; set in a fantastic peaceful location. The photographs just do not do it justice; the house is well equipped and welcoming, the rooms are well appointed and spacious, everything has been thought of to make your stay enjoyable. You will not be dissappointed if you choose to stay here!
Mrs Shaw May 2014
The property is very light and airy, the decor contributing to a happy seaside atmosphere. Without doubt if the weather had been warm we would have taken full advantage of the excellent equipment and facilities supplied in this immaculate property. Despite the cool weather the property was warm and comfortable. (Possible drawback for some: there are a lot of stairs, those to the basement feeling particularly steep.) We thoroughly enjoyed our week here and will happily recommend to friends.
Mr Martin March 2014
This house is absolutely fabulous! It was like staying in a first class hotel without the interference of staff. Equipment levels were superb, internal themed decor is lovely.
Miss Midwinter July 2013
This is an ideal base for a family holiday. The cottage is beautifully decorated and comes so well equipped that you will kick yourselves for bringing so much stuff from home! Even picnic ware is provided! The play station was a hit as were the games and DVDs. The location is perfect; near to a pretty beach and within an hour of many local attraction such as St Michael's Mount", Luzard Point and Trebah Gardens.
Mrs Harris May 2013
The house was fantastic BUT, the building work next door and the all day every day daily drilling and hammering really spoilt the stay if we're honest.
We were asked in the welcome pack to respect the neighbours which of course we did but the impact of the noise next door re. building work did impact on our stay. I realise you can't plan for this sort of thing but it was a real issue which was a shame because the house was absolutely ace.
Reply from Classic Cottages
Thanks for taking the time to pass on your review of Coastal Retreat. I know that we did talk about your concerns just after your stay, and when we investigated we couldn't pinpoint any major building work going on nearby, so we had to conclude that a neighbour must have been carrying out some DIY at home. We've not had any other reports of disturbance, so can only say how sorry we are that you experienced this disruption. I know that you enjoyed the house otherwise, and hope that you had a great time exploring the area. Tanya, Customer Support
Mrs Ronan May 2013
Loved this property! Spotlessly clean and very well equipped. Very comfortable sofas and beds and plenty of TVs - saves on the arguments over what to watch. Particularly liked the utility room which is very useful if having a barbeque. Would be very happy to use if holidaying in this area again.
Mrs Priest March 2013
Very relaxing break in comfortable accommodation.
Good or bad, we publish all the reviews left by the guests who have stayed in this cottage, with the few exceptions stated in our Review Guidelines.
