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.

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.

August 2019

Great house Great location Great holiday

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.

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.

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.

June 2019

Lovely property - exactly as described! We had a very relaxing week, and will definitely be returning.

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

April 2019

Astoundingly well equipped and all of a good quality. Highly recommended.

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.

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.

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.

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

March 2018

A fantastic cottage- immaculate and wonderfully equipped.

February 2018

Excellent property. Very clean with everything you could need and extra. Nice welcome pack which is a nice personal touch.

December 2017

Well equipped, modern, clean home. We couldn’t fault it.

December 2017

Very well presented modern property, would recommend to anybody who wants to visit Cornwall. 5Star.

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!

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.

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!

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

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.

May 2017

Fantastic weeks holiday - is a superb home. Buchanan and Burrow family.

April 2017

super property, lots of extra thoughtful touches just enjoyed our second stay, hope to return

February 2017

A beautiful property.Close to beaches and Falmouth.

February 2017

Thank you for a lovely warm, comfortable stay in a well equipped house in a lovely location. Beautiful overall presentation.

November 2016

We have stayed in many Coastal Retreats and this ticks all the boxes for quality accommodation and excellent location .

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!

June 2016

Beautiful house and very well equipped with quality furniture and appliances.

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.

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!

June 2015

We loved everything about Coastal Retreat. We only wished we had booked for longer!

June 2015

Superb property. One of the best we have stayed in. Very spacious, loved garden and sunloungers..

May 2015

Spacious house,not really a cottage.

September 2014

Stunning location

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!

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

March 2013

Very relaxing break in comfortable accommodation.
