Mr Rowland May 2022
This was our second stay at Cliff House. We stayed in early May. There were 5 adults and a 2 year old, and everything about the house was perfect. It was quiet, both during the day and the night. Access to the beach is very good, perfect for a run around early morning and after tea. We loved looking out of the big windows at the sea, watching the surfers. We absolutely loved our stay here.
Ms Ledger April 2022
The house is very comfortable and in a perfect location looking down on the beach. The coast path is right outside the door. There are cafes and shops within walking distance and a bus service to Penzance so no need to drive if you don't want to.
Mrs Hewitt April 2022
Comfortable and well located .
Mrs McMenemy April 2022
Great location fantastic views!
Mrs Franklin April 2022
We all enjoyed our 3rd visit to this house. Can't get a better location! House as before is lovely! Always make good use of the two cafes on the door step. Would love to return again!
Ms Liddicoat March 2022
A truly lovely stay at Cliff House. We booked the property for a family stay whilst walking the South West Coast Path (which passes through the village just 100m or so up the road from this property). The location is great, overlooking the beach with stunning views east and west along the coast, and is fairly private. The property itself is spacious, very well appointed, and peaceful - and we loved sitting in the hot tub at night under the stars (there is very little light pollution). We were also very impressed with the small village of Perranuthnoe itself - it has a wonderful cafe (Peppercorn Cafe - everything is cooked fresh) and an Inn which also serves excellent food (Victoria Inn - one of the oldest Inns in Cornwall). The other cafe near to the property was closed for refurbishment, so we can't comment on it. We were also very pleased with the good communication and smooth management of everything by Classic Cottages.
Mrs Read March 2022
Stayed here for a week mid March. The house is lovely, just overlooking the beach so the views are second to none. Great ease of access to the coast path and good bus service for return journey if you don’t want to drive. The house is extremely well equipped and the owners seem to have thought of everything. Hot tub amazing and easy to use with clear instructions. Food at the Victoria Inn is good, unfortunately both cafes were closed when we were there so can’t comment. Other than a storm on the first day the weather was wonderful. Highly recommended.
Mrs Hosking February 2022
Superb location and an excellent, well equipped, property.The hot tub was a total added bonus . We have already booked a return visit.
Mr Mitchell February 2022
Considering it was early February, the house was lovely and warm throughout and very comfortable
Ms Lass December 2021
This is a truly wonderful house. The whole family loved it.
Mrs Horsley November 2021
This is a perfect cottage. Perfect location, right over the beach, you can hear the sea all day. Woodburner, massive hottub, it ticks all the boxes. A cafe for your morning bap right next door, and the local pub was cute and friendly, good food and good wine. Pub was busy on a Saturday night even in the dead of winter so it must be very popular in summertime. I would definitely book Cliff House again.
Mrs Iles October 2021
Cliff house never fails to please. The owners take great care to ensure that it is well equipped and beautifully furnished. The location is perfect - waking up to the sound of the waves is always a highlight. It is so warm and welcoming, and we cannot rate it highly enough.
Mr Piggott October 2021
Amazing position, gorgeous beech, very comfortable house, very well appointed. We had a lovely time the cafe's and local pub all in walking distance are excellent.
Mr Taylor July 2021
Excellent location for beach and not far from Trevaskis farm for foodies, close to Penzance
Mrs Bloodworth June 2021
Excellent property, would definitely book again.
Mrs McCormack June 2021
The location & views are totally outstanding.
There was an issue with the downstairs toilet during our stay having no use for 3 days however the owner dealt with the issue as quickly as possible.
Only possible negative is that the soft furnishings in the lounge could do with a good wash.
This holiday surpassed my expectations & I won’t hesitate to book again for a large group.

Mrs Beard May 2021
Wonderful location for a family holiday.
Mr Rick May 2021
Lovely cottage in an excellent location, would highly recommend to anyone, and also food was excellent in a pub called coach and horses just down the road.
Mr Micotti May 2021
This is the second time we have stayed at Cliff House and both times the experience was amazing. The location, the views, the amenities are all home from home. This property is worth it just for the views but the garden overlooking the sea make this the best yet.
Mr Watkins April 2021
We had an amazing family holiday in this beautiful house. The photos don’t do it justice and it is by far the loveliest place we have stayed in the UK. Sitting in the hot tub on a chilly April morning whilst watching the surfers and enjoying the views has to be a highlight. Didn’t want to leave!

We are delighted that you had such an amazing family holiday - it sounds as if you have found your bolthole! Hot tub mornings sound great - that's a trend we would like to see started! We so hope to welcome you back in the future. Sarah, Customer Support

Mrs Iles October 2020
Cliff House has the perfect location, is warm, welcoming and a delightful place to stay for young and old alike.
Mr Cox October 2020
Wonderful family holiday home, ideal for the beach.
Mrs Dunn October 2020
Fantastic location and lovely comfy house. Plenty of space for little ones to run around safely!
Miss King September 2020
We loved our holiday at Cliff House, from the minute we stepped in through the door, we were amazed! The property is incredible and the views, wow! Enjoyed a few afternoons/evenings in the hot tub enjoying the views! Such a lovely little village too. The house was incredibly clean and very spacious too. We didn’t want to leave!! Already looking at coming back next year!
Mr Taylor July 2020
Great for family beach holiday perfect location
Mrs Fitzgerald January 2020
Lovely cosy house to watch the sea and storms in the winter.
Mrs Green November 2019
Cliff House is possibly the best holiday cottage I have ever stayed in. The location is unbeatable, the house is spacious and comfortable. The hot tub was a marvellous bonus. We stayed in early November and the house was cosy and weather-proof but with wonderful views. You can step out onto the beach or the coast path or stay in and just gaze at the sea and the ever-changing sky and weather.
Mrs Robinson August 2019
Perfect location. We were an extended family with 4 young children and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. House warm and comfortable and well equipped. Highly recommend.
Mrs Davies August 2019
It is truly the perfect holiday house whatever the weather ...... we all just love it! We have been coming now for three years and it is just wonderful . Nothing beats your first cuppa of the day sitting in the garden listening to the sea OR your last drink at night lying in the hot tub looking at the stars ..... simply idyllic! I’m worrying now it’s getting too popular .... I’ve already reserved the last week of the summer holidays for 2021 ....... eeek!!!
Mr Micotti June 2019
Cliff House was the perfect family retreat, fantastic property with all the mod cons you would expect and the best views. We have already booked for next year.
Mr Manwaring April 2019
You can't help but be impressed, but don't book it leave the dates for us!
Mrs Murray April 2019
The proximity to the beach makes this property so perfect for a family getaway. At the end of a day out it was simple to get changed and meander down to the beach for sand castles, rock balancing and wave jumping. Our pilgrimage along the coastal path to catch the boat in time for the Easter Sunday service in the church at St Michaels Mount was well worth the effort. What an awesome place to then return to and contemplate the world from your armchair gazing across the bay. Smiles all round.
Mrs Franklin April 2019
Excellent house. Second time of staying. Wonderful location. Hot tub is a bonus. It is the best house we have stayed at and booking again for next year! It's so lovely and suits all ages. So near to the coastal path for more lovely views. It is such a lovely area.
Mrs Iles October 2018
Cliff house is warm and welcoming. The beds are comfortable, the house is well equipped and the views are outstanding, whatever the weather. It just cannot be beaten for location. We have been holidaying at Cliff house in the Autumn for several years now, and the owners go out of their way to make visitors feel at home. The hot tub was a great new addition, and enjoyed by everyone.
Mr Cox October 2018
It’s the greatest location.
Mrs Fitzgerald September 2018
Star gazing in the hot tub is a must.
Mrs Massey August 2018
This was a holiday booked to celebrate a big birthday with family coming and going at different times. It is a beautiful house in an excellent position, not only with sea views and access to the beach, but being part of a village having Galleries and eateries to choose from. Gallery/shop owners all very friendly. We enjoyed many walks and followed some Murder Mystery or Treasure Hunt Trails re-visiting old haunts, including Mousehole, Land's End and Sennen Cove. St Michael's Mount and Marazion were new to us and were delightful. We tried all the eateries and supported the galleries. Thank you for a wonderful holiday!
Ms Pope July 2018
Wonderful location, perfect beach for young children, central location, lovely walk to Prussia cove via cudden point, hot tub fab,
Mr Miller July 2018
Another lovely week at cliff house with the great addition of the hot tub. Idyllic location and great weather helped to make a relaxing and enjoyable week.
Ms Jungr June 2018
This house is lovely, beautifully furnished and decorated and perfectly located, Everything in its description is true. It overlooks the beach and is perfectly private whilst at the same time being next door to a superb beach and a beach cafe! The garden is lovely, and the facilities provided including the hot tub and barbecue, all make for a wonderful holiday. We would go back here in a flash. The space and calm, and the lovely touches - flowers, cake and strawberries on arrival. Spotlessly clean and comfortable. Beds and bedding, everything was perfect.This house is in the most wonderful location. You can open your windows and listen to the waves send you to sleep and awaken to the tide coming in. The view from the garden, the proximity to anything you might need whilst being pretty private; perfect. I cannot praise this house more highly. Everything about our holiday was perfect, and I would return to this house and location in a flash.
Mr Edmundson June 2018
There can’t be a property with a better aspect than Cliff House in Cornwall
Mrs Franklin April 2018
Fantastic location. We enjoyed being right by the beach and listening to the sea. The house is amazing, very comfortable beds. Plenty of seating in the sitting room. We were lucky enough to be able to watch dolphins from the garden! This is the best house we have stayed in and have booked for next year. This was perfect for our family of six adults and a five year old who loved the hot tub as did everyone else! Great walks a long the coastal path in either direction. A lovely week and can't recommend enough!
Mrs Phillips March 2018
Amazing house and location, will definitely be there again!
Mr Purchase December 2017
Purchase / Dolman Family
This is our third stay at Cliff House (although our first review). We absolutely love being here whether it is during the summer months or at Christmas - its like coming home, it is a very special place to stay!
The house is extremely comfortable and spacious, very well equipped and in a beautiful location. Perranuthnoe is a lovely unspoilt village with friendly and welcoming residents, it also has the added advantage of a great local pub 'The Victoria Inn' with lovely staff and amazing food. There are also a couple of really good cafes in the village, 'The Cabin' which is practically on the beach has live music by a local band (early evening only, not on late) on Christmas Eve - do go if you are ever staying at Cliff House over Christmas. The beach is great any time of day but especially good for an early morning or late evening walk if you like a bit of quiet time and being one with nature. Seeing the dolphins and seals from the house and terrace is amazing. The coastal walks in either direction are just wonderful. As mentioned in an earlier review mobile phone reception is zero, that said if you have a fairly modern phone with WiFi Calling as a feature then turn it on and you will have no problem communicating with the 'outside' world.
If you are thinking about booking Cliff house for a holiday our advise is do not think about it, just do it, you will not be disappointed.

Thanks so much for taking the time to let us know about your Christmas stay at Cliff House. It sounds as though you had a wonderful return visit and what a fabulous treat to see our resident population of bottlenose dolphins out in the bay! We hope that you'll visit again very soon. Tanya, Customer Support
Mrs Williams October 2017
We have stayed in four different cottages in Perranthunoe, each one has been delightful but the best by far was Cliff cottage. It’s location is perfect, a very short walk to the beautiful beach or the Victoria Inn for a pint and first class meal. The house over looks the beach and sea and it’s large windows allow unrivalled views of the coast and sea which during storm Ophelia allowed us to stay warm whilst enjoying the majesty of the weather. The house is equipped to a very high standard with paintings, ornaments and decour all adding to the experience. A wonderful place to stay for a week or two in one of the most beautiful locations in the UK.
Mrs Lutz October 2017
Cliff house is a great place to stay have used twice now.
Very welcoming and calming atmosphere . Peaceful and all you could hear at night was the sea. The lounge was very comfortable to sit and relax and look at the view. Great decoration and furnishings in the house lots to admire. Very personalised . Love it.
Mr Fitzgerald September 2017
We love this house
Mr Smith August 2017
Our second visit to this lovely house that we enjoyed tremendously as we had last year, and although the weather was below average the house and position allowed us to enjoy our stay using the facilities in the property and visiting local places especially National Trust locations. The beach facilities and position of the house was so good especially for swimming and paddle boarding. The new terrace area is a great bonus for sitting and viewing the surrounding area.
Mrs Woodward July 2017
A beautiful house in a stunning location. Don't expect your mobile phone to work though! With only incoming calls on the house phone, communication with the 'outside' world can be difficult.
Our second stay at Cliff House and it didn't disappoint, sadly however, it's unlikely we shall come again as we would want to bring our dog. Pets not accepted.
Mr Edmundson June 2017
Just magnificent. Nothing better than drawing the big curtain of the huge picture window upstairs and looking out onto the beautiful Perranuthnoe beach.
Mrs Hewitt September 2016
Wonderfully located house , comfortable & clean .
Mrs Beavis September 2016
Cliff House certainly has the WOW factor. Fantastic location, beautiful decor and a really comfortable home.
Viscount Suirdale August 2016
I can really recommend this house. The location is fantastic, the house lovely and it was in excellent condition and cleanliness when we arrived. Lots of small touches on arrival made a big difference. We are already thinking of returning!!
Mrs Murray July 2016
Set on the coastal path of one of the prettiest parts of Cornwall, and within striking distance of many beautiful walks and places to visit, this was a wonderful place to return to after a day out. Going to sleep to the sound of the waves on the beach and waking up to the sight of a gloriously empty beach every morning were highlights for me.
Mrs Woodward July 2016
The WOW FACTOR is amazing - from the moment you step through the door. The photos really do not do it justice.
Ms Nixon June 2016
A very special place to stay - comfortable, spacious accommodation in a beautiful location.
Mr Cox May 2016

Mrs Moore February 2016
Stunning location and very comfortable property. Ideal for families and walkers.
Mrs Puar December 2015
Had a wonderful Christmas week. The location right on the beach was great, if a little noisy from the roaring winds and waves. We would recommend
Mr Fitzgerald September 2015
A lovely warm and comfortable house in a wonderful location. Great for families but ideal for groups too
Mr Miller August 2015
A very comfortable and well appointed house with stunning views all just a short walk to a great beach. Fabulous!
Ms Burley August 2015
This is a very comfortable house in a location which is ideal for our 11-15yr old children. They are already begging us to book it again for next year! The Location is excellent for St Michael's Mount, The Lizard and Lands End and, being right on the beach meant that we could go out and do something during the day and then the kids could go in the sea when we got back whilst we sipped a G & T and waved from the terrace!
Mr Morley June 2015
We had a fantastic week at Cliff House and would recommend it to anyone (although not to anyone for the second week of June 2016, as we want to book it for then for a return trip!)
Mrs Mutimer June 2015
Cliff House is in a great location literally a minutes walk from a gorgeous sandy beach. Also only a few moments walk from a great cafe and lovely pub. What more could you ask for?
Mrs Hewitt April 2015
The house is simply stunning. A superv location overlooking the beach, and near to the coast path. Very quiet too. Comfortable beds, efficient showers and good cooker. Parking easy. A hidden gem.
Mr Cox August 2014

Miss Forster August 2014
