Nanpusker is such a beautiful tranquil place to stay This is our second visit we just loved sitting in the peaceful atmosphere watching the sun go down listening to the birds and watching the bats appear at night Perfect place to relax Thank you.

The Pump house is an ideal choice of places to stay, lots of comfort, space and peace and quiet. The beaches in this area are incredible and the food was fantastic.

Amazing location, the house is nestled away down a long drive giving complete peace and quiet. Felt very relaxed staying here. The grounds are really wonderful, great big garden for our children to play safely. Hot tub great to come back to after a day at the beach. Very conveniently situated and short drive to beaches, shops and other areas of Cornwall.

Nanpusker Pump House is a great spacious house with everything you need. The property is a bit hidden so it is quite windless for Cornish conditions. You can enjoy sitting in the garden. The Hot-Tub was ready for us at anytime, so we enjoyed using it.

We're delighted to hear that Nanpusker Pump House had everything you could need. The garden looks like the perfect place to relax, especially in the hot tub! We hope to welcome you back in future. Meg, Customer Support

A beautiful cottage with extensive well kept grounds. Would certainly come again

Fabulous holiday staying at Nanpusker Pump House. The owners were lovely and on hand to help with anything we needed. The house was very well equipped and we had everything and more that we needed. The garden is beautiful and the hot tub was the icing on the cake! We’ve rebooked we enjoyed it that much ??

Nanpusker Pump House is a beautiful house in a lovely location. Only a few minutes from Hayle and easy access to the A30 but it feels sufficiently remote to feel a sense of peace and quiet. The grounds were very well kept and the hot tub was very welcome. The house itself is well equipped, spacious enough for all of us (4 adults and 2 children) and very warm and cosy. Would definitely return - we had a lovely week (despite some slightly changeable weather....)

This house is just beautiful. The kitchen is so well equipped. The living room warm and cosy We love the terrace in the evening watching the sun go down and listening to the birds The hot tub a treat even in the rain Can’t wait to visit again Perfect peaceful spot

How relaxing to watch the sunset accompanied by bird song, idyllic! We are so pleased you had a wonderful time, and we look forward to welcoming you back soon. Sarah R, Customer Support

Beautiful house and surroundings, very calm and peaceful, the hot tub was the cherry on the cake, and made a great holiday even better!

Nanpusker pump house was amazing as were the owners. We were supplied with a lovely cream tea and wine which was fantastic! The house is incredible and was perfect in its secluded and beautiful surroundings. My daughters loved the space and the hot tub and it was easy access to other parts of Cornwall. A wonderful stay and well loved house. Thank you.

great location, great property, great value

What a wonderful stay we had at Nanpusker, every little part of the cottage was fantastic and it’s short commute to St Ives meant we had a fantastic stay. Hayle itself is a little run down and if anything the only thing missing was somewhere in walking distance for food and drinks but with St Ives within 15mins drive it was a minor issue. Would definitely stay again!

Cottage was comfortable and in excellent position for exploring Cornwall.

Nanpusker is lovely the grounds to the house are amazing wild phesants roaming around . House was clean a so lovely the owners charlotte and tony were brill. We really enjoyed are stay , and we will definately be back so we can visit the cat simba.

Very happy with the whole experience- comfortable and tastefully furnished and decorated. A very relaxing retreat from the outside bustling world. Would definitely want to return again.

Comfy, well equipped and beautifully located property. Thoroughly recommended. Wonderful hot tub!

Brilliant property!

The best holiday cottage we have ever stayed in. Did not want to leave!

Fantastic week at Nanpusker Pump House - beautiful house, peaceful location, wonderful wildlife. The hot tub was a god send after walking all day! Will definitely return ??

Lovely comfortable property in an idyllic spot. Perfect garden for wildlife spotting and the hot tub was a very welcome treat at the end of a long day exploring.

The cottage is absolutely beautiful. I was surprised how perfectly equipped it was. It was absolutely spotless. The owners were more than helpful and lovely people. The views and the grounds were very well kept and the wildlife was amazing. Would definitely stay again.

Nanpusker Pumphouse is the best ever cottage we have stayed at in Cornwall. We first holidayed at Nanpusker Pumphouse in 2015 and have been back every year since, we just love it. Needless to say we hope to go again in 2019.

Nanpusker was one of the most relaxing places to stay with a great location and very practical for our family of six.

This was our second visit to Nanpusker and we enjoyed it just as much as the first time. The house is cosy and comfortable and well equipped. The garden is large and the hot tub is amazing at the end of the day or even in wet weather. There is plenty of wildlife to see because the area is quiet and private. The house is situated ideally close to the A30 for easy access up and down Cornwall. We love it.

This is a house ready for children as well as adults. The grounds are beautiful and peaceful and so safe. We would recommend it to anyone. We had a lovely week. It is also convenient to so many places around what ever your taste in a holiday is.

Nanpuskar is a beautiful property in a perfect location. Close enough to Hayle town centre but as it's on the outskirts you wouldn't know this. You could literally be anywhere!

I'd definitely recommend this property.

Beautiful house, with loads of space, lovely gardens and the added luxury of a hot tub that we used every day, even in April, to look up at the stars and enjoy the surroundings.

Overall lovely location, close to supermarkets but with a rural feel and lots of wildlife to spot in the garden and surrounding area. Hot tub was great for relaxing and watching the stars or bird spotting in the day. Excellent location for the whole of Cornwall. We cycled to Lands End visited various beaches on all coasts and several National Trust properties.

A hidden Gem!..... And a fantastic base for exploring some of Cornwall's many attractions. Tony and Charlotte very welcoming, and made it feel like a 'home away from home'. Will definitely be returning.

Excellent accomodation, friendly reception and removed from the usual holiday type lets.

Loved our stay at The pump house, excellent location very peaceful, well equipped and easy access to explore cornwall, tony and charlotte have created a real home from home

Wonderful in every way, if you want peace and quiet then this is the place for you.

A fabulous house in a beautiful setting

Before I arrived I was a little apprehensive about the driveway and the house being too secluded and in the middle of nowhere. In truth the driveway was made of concrete and suitable for any car, so absolutely no complaints there. As for the location, it was perfect. You always felt safe and yet very private. It had the best of everything. The vendors, Tony and Charlotte, were lovely. You couldn't ask for more.

Good sized property set in a beautiful location but be cautious of the wooden floors and cool heating - especially at night.

Thanks so much for your review of Nanpusker Pump House, and we're delighted you enjoyed the gorgeous surroundings. There are lots of beautiful original features - including wooden floors and stairs as shown in the photos - and as with most properties of this age, there are some steps up and down to different levels. Sorry to hear that you felt a little chilly in the evening - the Owners are on site to help with adjusting the heating if necessary, or to give guidance if needed on lighting the lovely wood-burner. Tanya, Customer Support

If you are looking for a well presented and equipped cottage in tranquil surroundings with a variety of wildlife this is the one! The owners Tony and Charlotte were on hand when needed and discreet when checking hot tub emptying bins etc, but always ready for a chat, the perfect hosts! We were so sad to be leaving "our cottage" at the end of the two weeks, but we will certainly be returning!!

What a lovely place to stay. Quiet, secure and homely. A real treat. Very laid back and welcoming owners, thoroughly recommend....although I wont as then everyone will want to go there, and I wont get a chance to book it, so therefore I would say its great all year except September, April and May !!!!

Made to feel very welcome and we had complete privacy.We loved everything about this house,the home the grounds the view's and the wildlife.We will definitely be going back and we are missing it already. We felt like lottery winners in the hot tub drinking champagne and starring up at the stars. Absolutely beautiful holiday home.

Although the owners are on site , you wouldn't know. Very friendly and nothing too much trouble. Lovely couple.

Amazing cottage, amazing location from the Jacuzzi to the close by shopping facilities to the silence and night and seeing every single star it is utterly perfect

Nanpusker Pump House is a superb holiday cottage, full of character and situated in a peaceful location. When we arrived we had a lovely welcome from Charlotte and Tony where they showed us around the cottage, this was a lovely surprise. The hot tub is a must. Overall our holiday was a good one with good weather all round except for one day of rain. We visited our usual haunts, Padstow, St.Ives, Sennen Cove, Perranporth and Penzance. We shall definitely be coming back. Well done Classic Cottages, what a find, our best cottage yet!!

We had a marvellous holiday in a wonderful homely environment. The cottage was well equipped and very clean. The owners were extremely helpful and always on hand, but not intrusive. An extremely relaxing holiday location.

Superb accomodation in a fantastic location, large garden is ideal for the kids to play in, extremely accomodating hosts. Cottage is extremely well looked after and cared for, all our additional requests such as high chair, stair gate etc were all acted upon with no fuss. Can't wait to go back, perfect!!!

Beautiful cottage in idyllic setting. The cottage was exceptionally stunning and suited all members of our party. Hot tub great

I would recommend a stay there to my friends and family.

Feel like you are miles away from it all yet everything you could need within a short drive,also very central for visiting both north and south with lots of national trust places nearby,owners also very friendly.Both house and Garden are beautiful,I will miss my morning coffee on the balcony and watching the pheasants roaming the garden.

This is our 2nd visit to nanpusker pump house. We love it. It feels homely. And the setting is lovely. We will go again!

Fantastic house in a great location.

We had a fantastic holiday

Thoughally recommended to anyone who wants a quiet location but easy access to local attractions

We really enjoyed our time at Nanpusker, the cottage is excellent and the garden is beautiful. The hot tub is also wonderful for relaxing in after a busy day is sightseeing.

Would just like to say a big thank you to Tony and Charlotte for the very warm welcome. We were all very sad to leave the property as it was very cosy and immediately felt like home and not at all like a holiday rental.

We were blessed with great weather during our stay so were able to get out and about but we would have been quite content on a rainy day to relax indoors.

Have already recommended to various friends and colleagues.

We chose the property because of the size of garden, hot tub, nice views and location . Unusual property.

Fantastic accommodation and location. Shame the summer house wasn't available to use and more disappointingly the hot tub only fits 4 people when the house sleeps 6. It meant the whole party couldn't relax in the tub together and without the summerhouse to use it was far enough away from the house to disappoint.

Thanks for your review of Nanpusker Pump House. The summerhouse is always unlocked and guests are welcome to use it (the garden furniture is usually out on the deck, but it's easy to move into the summerhouse if required). We've double checked with the Owner and he's confirmed that the hot tub is designed to seat five. We hope you enjoyed your time at Nanpusker, we agree - the location is fantastic! Tanya, Customer Support

We would highly recommend Nanpusker Pumphouse, as a fabulous place to stay in Cornwall. The property and it's grounds are so peaceful and really well presented. Tony and Charlotte were very helpful hosts and maintain the property to a very high standard. We found the location ideal for getting to all areas of Cornwall and having the shops close by was really useful. All in all, a perfect "Classic Cottage" and we will be back!!

we wanted to go to lands end and visit other local places, so we were looking for somewhere close by as a base. Also, there were 5 of us, adults so we needed at least 5 beds. We were particularly attacted to Nanpusker because of the hot tub, which we made good use of. Tony and Charlotte were charming and very helpful, we loved our stay, and would recommend it to our friends.

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.
