The cottage was very nice for our stay.It had everything we could need for our weeks stay.The rooms were spacious and the beds comfy.The bed linen was of good quality.Would definitely stay again.You need to be pretty fit if you are wanting to walk into Newlyn as the walk back to the cottage is a killer.We were much fitter going home than when we arrived.The car parking was an added bonus.

Gwavas Lakes is a brilliant holiday cottage, and affordable - which I didn't think I would find in Cornwall. The house was very clean and comfortable, and all of the equipment was of excellent quality. The best bit though was the spectacular views of Mounts Bay - which no photographs do justice to.

We enjoyed the fantastic views and the level of comfort and cleanliness in the cottage. Unfortunately the neighbours immediately adjacent were building their own terrace and decking the week we stayed, so the tranquility of the outdoor space was somewhat spoilt so limited how we felt able to use it.

It's great so see that you liked Gwavas Lakes so much, especially the lovely views. It's such a shame to hear that the neighbours were carrying out some garden improvments during your stay; obviously this is difficult for us to predict but we're sorry that you found this disturbing.

A great little cottage with wonderful views, brilliant location and great features. I had a great time celebrating my 30th birthday here with my friends and family and will definitely be coming back for the summer.

The house was beautiful with the best equipped kitchen, quality linen and towels I have ever rented. The house was more like a home than a rental and we have already rebooked.

Outstanding views to this property in a lovely location, however maybe hilly for some.

Thanks for your lovely review of Gwavas Lakes - we're delighted that you enjoyed that wonderful view, although as you found, to get such elevation you do have to embrace the hills! We think it's worth the effort, and we're sure that you will agree. Hopefully you'll consider returning again in the future. Tanya, Customer Support

Lovely Cottage, very well equipped with excellent views, you should add a picture of the Kitchen as I was concerned about its size, but it is very spacious.

Reply from Classic Cottages

Thank you for your suggestion to add a photograph of the kitchen, which you'll see we've now done. We're glad you had a great stay.

Lovely cottage with a great view of the harbour. Good off road parking which is a definite plus in Newlyn.
