Our second stay at Montaza was just as good as our first. A spacious, warm and welcoming cottage within walking distance to two great pubs serving excellent food. It’s ideally located for access to some great beaches. The cottage is beautifully clean and well stocked. Our two dogs were welcomed with beds, bowls and towels all provided. The lemon drizzle cake and tea provided on arrival was excellent and a nice touch. Highly recommended cottage.

We had a lovely stay at Montaza. The cottage is well equipped and comfortable, in a good location to reach some nice beaches and St Michael’s Mount. Dog owners need to be mindful of visiting in the summer months as a lot of beaches are only suitable for dogs before 10am and after 6pm so do a little research. “Parking for 2” at the cottage is a bit optimistic as the second space is in a garage and you can’t open your car doors once you’ve driven in, but there was always plenty of parking on the road outside. Goldsithney has a well stocked village shop and 2 great pubs.
MS Rigby July 2023
Very cosy, comfortable cottage in a lovely village. Plenty of lovely walks and beaches roundabouts. Highly recommended, we would definitely consider a return visit.
Ms Crawford April 2023
This is a lovely grade 2 listed house: cosy and comfortable in a people-friendly village with two pubs and a great local shop. It’s very close to a quiet local beach, cafes and great pub with delicious food at Perranuthnoe and a beautiful walk to a fascinating church at St Hilary - we barely used our car.
Ms Graham November 2022
Because of our work commitments we could not travel on the change over days. We were very pleased to get such a prompt reply to our request to arrive on a different date. Also liked that we had emails ensuring that all was well with our stay. Thank you had a lovely time

Stayed at the montaza for a week. Lovely cozy and welcoming feel on arrival. Cottage was lovely and clean and had all the equipment and amenities that you would need. Cottage is close to two great pubs and lovely beaches and walks. There is also a little shop within walking distance which is very handy. Would definitely stay again and would recommend this cottage.
Mrs Johnson August 2022
Goldsithney is a great location and Montaza was a really lovely place to stay. We explored lots of beaches and villages nearby and walked our dogs at Perranuthnoe beach every morning and evening. The village stores are well stocked with basics and we ordered delicious food to take away from the local pub a few doors down. We were very comfortable and had a lovely break at Montaza.
Dr Beardow June 2022

Mrs Rowland February 2022
Montaza is a lovely cottage. Warm, comfortable and very well appointed. Lovely walks from the cottage to the coast, perfect for our dogs. We would thoroughly recommend as a place to stay, it’s a great cottage in a super location within easy reach of lovely beaches and local attractions
Mrs Palmer February 2022
The cottage was warm and comfortable. The property is lovely but could do with a bit of an overhaul… in the way of equipment and decorating, The shower wasn’t great!! Shower head looks old and redundant, the control handle wouldn’t stay on warm was either hot or cold!! Property just looking tired!

Ms Jenkin August 2020
Beautiful Cornish cottage in a friendly village with plenty of room for 6 people.
Mr Harman August 2020
A nice large cottage in a lively, busy community ideally placed to drive to all the centres in south west Cornwall.
Mrs Graham July 2020
Fabulous location; walkable to local shop, pubs and local beach.
Mrs Ford December 2019
Lovely place to stay. The owners make you feel very welcome and provided mince pies and a pint of milk plus kitchen table set out with cups and saucers and tea bags. Heating easy to use. Dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer would be great for a family with children. The aga took a bit of getting used to for cooking, but it was fun trying and managed a Christmas dinner! Very well equipped with crockery and cooking utensils, but also the little extras like bin bags, cleaner, tin foil, doggy poo bags. The parking is for two cars but one is in the garage which was a bit tight, but we managed with two fairly big cars. Local shop and pubs very friendly. Easy access to Oenzance and St Ives and surrounding areas. Can't fault it at all and would love to go again.
Mrs Watts July 2019
Very week presented, homely and comfortable cottage. Great location for exploring Cornwall. Lovely beach a short walk away, with gorgeous coastal walks nearby. The village shop is a gem. And the lemon cake on arrival was a real treat. Definitely recommend this cottage.
Mrs Bowe June 2019
A really lovely property in a great location. Huge rooms. Garden space was lovely.
Mrs Luck December 2018
We hope to revisit again soon!
Mrs Stiefel December 2018
We had the most amazing Cornish Christmas, Montaza was the perfect place to stay thank you for all the extra special touches, will definitely be booking for the summer!!
Mrs Williamson December 2018
An excellent cottage for family of 5 and two dogs. Plenty of space and comfortable and near to good beaches.
Miss Graham September 2018
We really enjoyed our stay in Montaza. It was a superb location, ideally situated next to two pubs and a corner shop. It is only a 25 minute walk to an outstanding beach and a short drive to local tourist spots such as St. Ives, Land's end, St. Michaels Mount and the Minack Theatre. The cottage itself is cosy, welcoming and comfortable. We made good use of the garden, spending our evenings outside enjoying the last of the sunshine. We specifically liked the additions of the coffee machine and slow cooker.
Ms Harding August 2018
We had an amazingly wonderful and comfortable stay at the cottage. Would love to return. X
Mr Pollit August 2018
A fantastic cottage in a perfect location for exploring the area. A lovely sandy beach was within easy walking distance, as is the coastal path. The Crown, about 20 yards away, was the better of the two pubs for food. The owner was very helpful advising us of the dog friendly beaches and where to park and get the bus to St Ives. We would love to come back one day.
Mr Ward July 2018
Lovely spacious cottage in a small village. Have to drive to get places but we really enjoyed our family holiday here.
Miss Newcomb July 2018
A fabulous cottage for our family get together earlier this month. The cottage offered a great base location with some lovely dog walks around the bridle way. The local pub was very welcoming to us when watching England in the world cup. The cottage offered everything that we could need-with the ability to allow more than enough space for 6 adults and a dog. Just a small warning in regards to parking in front of the cottage on the roadside (if you have more than 2 cars)-We witnessed 2 cars get hit in the 5 days that we stayed there. I have already recommended this holiday home to friends and hope to return myself. Also a big thank you for the freshly baked cake-it was delicious!
Ms Stamm May 2018
Montaza Cottage was great for our traveling group of 6 adults! The cottage is so quaint and comfortable, very well appointed. We had plenty of room to be together or be apart. The kitchen was wonderful, we cooked breakfast every morning, and even stayed in to cook dinner one evening. Highly recommend this cottage.
Mr Beard May 2018
Great location and a comfortable home to return to each evening. Will return.
Mr Mosedale March 2018
It was nice being in a village with an excellent village shop, a post office and two pubs all within about 100m of the front door (the shop might be 200m!). For the size of the house it is excellent value for money and yet the more obviously touristy places (Penzance, St Ives etc) are within easy driving distance. As a family, we've stayed in a holiday house in this part of Cornwall for the last 12 years and have never been back to the same one twice. I think this will be the exception to that rule and we plan to book it for 2018.
Mr Thorpe October 2017
The size and style of this cottage is perfect for a family. The decor is beautiful very clean and comfortable. Everything you need and more. Loved the fire. Absolutely perfect really enjoyed our stay. ( and I’m fussy ??) Great location, parking very convenient. Little touches like leaving a pumpkin for the children was great, which we did and put out, so lots of local children called trick or treating made us feel very at home. Thank you perfect way to spend a week away.
Mrs O'Meara June 2017
Comfortable, clean, welcoming and homely.
Mr Hale September 2016
We all enjoyed our vacation - parents, grandparents & twins of two & a half. Location - very near lots of great beaches & places of interest. We did EDEN, Praa sands, seal sanctuary, Marazion, Minac theatre, Mousehole etc etc etc. we had an action packed week! Cake was welcoming & whol;e ambiance of cottage was lovely - my grandchildren fell in love with the dolls house -- please send us a stockist!
Ms Kavanagh July 2016
The landlady was great. Calling to see everything was OK. The lovely touch of learning the cake and flowers was much appreciated. The cottage was beautiful and we'll stocked. Thanks for everything Teresa kavanagh.
Mrs Chatfield June 2016
We really enjoyed our stay, the cottage was very well equipped, and welcoming. and central to everywhere we wanted to visit, including a local bus route, very convenient.
Mr Hallam June 2016
A lovely house, good location, comfortable amenities, plenty of bridal ways and lanes for cycling. Would highly recommend Montaza. Much appreciated the cake and milk provided.
Mrs Vine March 2016
We really enjoyed our stay in Montaza and recommend this cottage and company for a brilliant stay in Cornwall.
Mr Espezel August 2015
Beautiful cottage superbly positioned for visits to the region.Lovely friendly community with shop and pub a stones throw. Great walks across farmland on paths with a really friendly farmer.
Ms Gonzalez August 2015
Absolutely LOVED our stay in this cottage. Cosy, welcoming and well-appointed. Fantastic home-made chocolate cake welcomed us on arrival. Mrs Brown popped by to welcome us in person and to make sure we had everything we wanted. Superb, central spot to visit all the main attractions on the toe of Cornwall. Local village stores, 2 pubs within 100m of the front door and 4 miles from Morrison's, Tesco's (24/7) and Sainsbury's Superstores. Take your pick!
The local beach, Perranuthnoe, is a pleasant 1 1/2 mile stroll downhill and is a pretty, cove beach. It has a fantastic beachside café called The Cabin that does excellent food and home-made cakes. You need to go at low tide when all the sandy beach is exposed.
St Michael's Mount is a must; a truly unique and magical place. Check the tides so that you walk on the Causeway one way and get the boat back. The 2 National Trust cafes on the Mount do fantastic food and have spectacular views of the mainland.
We had a fantastic stay and would happily return.
Mr Dar May 2015
Cottage was lovely, a bit noisy from the traffic but not unbearable. We were very disappointed with the leak from the shower room as well as the bath tub caused due to sealant requiring remedial work. A plumber called out by the owner also agreed with me but owner decided against acting on the plumbers advice. This left us with limited bathing facilities. Very disappointed at owners attitude and will not be returning to Montaza.
Reply from Classic Cottages
Thanks for your review - we've responded directly to you as you know, but just to recap, the Owner did check the situation and offered a temporary repair as the full repair would have meant further interruption to your stay whilst the sealant was removed, replaced and allowed to dry. You agreed that this would be disruptive so should be carried out after your departure and that actually a temporary repair was not necessary during your holiday. The sealant has now been entirely replaced and there has been no further leakage, so thanks for letting us know. Tanya, Customer Support
Mr Griffiths December 2014
Lovely, welcoming cottage in a great village within easy reach of Marazion and it's amazing beach (ideal for Dogs outside the summer season)
Mrs Packer December 2014
Lovely spacious cottage, excellent location.
Kind provision of Christmas decorations, mince pies, cream and milk upon arrival - very welcoming!
Mr Binfield August 2014
A wonderfully situated cottage in a lovely village close to both shops and the two pubs. A 2 minute drive into Marazion with breathtaking view over St.Michaels mount and easy access to Penzance, Newlyn, Mousehole and St.Ives. A well equiped and extremely comfortable cottage that we will definately be back to.
Mrs Atkinson August 2014
