A perfect cottage for 2 people. Well situated to access local attractions.

Very comfortable, cosy cottage for two. Excellent location for discovering the coastline around the Lizard Peninsular. Lots of supermarkets nearby, the pasties at the Cornish Oven are wonderful, we took ours to the beach and they stayed warm. We had a great meal at The Halzephron Inn in Gunwalloe on two evenings.

Perfect location at the gateway to the Lizard, with Falmouth and Penzance a short drive away for all fun filled activities- sailing, swimming and seeing friends! This time around, on our third visit, we enjoyed visiting Porthleven Food and Music Festival, sailing in Falmouth Bay, swimming in the Art Deco lido at Penzance, visiting Bonython Gardens and Penlee House Gallery, and trying out new places to eat, such as Cast in Helston. This cosy cottage for two has everything you need for your Cornish break. When the sun is out, you can enjoy drinks on the terrace. Wonderful! We're already looking forward to our next visit!

The Hideaway is a comfortable and compact cottage in a convenient location for walking the south west coastal path. In general there is no need to use the car as there are lots of buses leaving for a variety of local destinations from bus stops nearby. The cottage is attractively decorated and well equipped. We really enjoyed our stay here, made even more so by the owners, who were welcoming and friendly.

Kate and Nigel were truly wonderful hosts and their small cottage an absolute delight! I enjoyed a lovely holiday at The Hideaway and will definitely be back for a second time.

One of many stays, a great base.

Very comfortable, finished to a high standard, would very happily stay again in the future

Perfectly positioned for sailing, swimming and seeing friends.

A wonderful cottage for two at the gateway to The Lizard. Excellent value for money. We can't fault it!

This is our second visit this year (2021) and we hope to be back next year.

Everything about the Hideaway exceeded our expectations. We enjoyed our 2 week stay and felt it was one of our best ever holidays. Our visit was while restaurants were not open for indoor seating. The cottage had excellent cooking facilities, so meals were a delight and we enjoyed the cottage garden views from the kitchen table. The location was super as we wanted to hike around the south coast path. It was easy and quick to drive to a parking area before each hike. The cottage was immaculate and the owners were available and kind if we wished for anything. The end of the first week, they presented us with freshly ironed bedding and clean towels, etc. We enjoyed the wood fire on a couple of rainy evenings as well. We would definitely return and recommend the Hideaway for any visit to the south Cornish coast!

This is a cosy cottage with a delightful garden terrace. Such a find! Idyllic for visiting friends and our favourite haunts on the Lizard as well as exploring new places along the Cornish coast. We'll be back for a return visit, hopefully! We were blessed with glorious sunshine and cloudless blue skies every day. Can't beat that!

We were staying when the Lord High Admiral had just passed away so raised a glass of fizz in a commemorative toast to HRH with our friends down at Cadgwith Cove one evening. Unforgettable time. Precious memories.

We are delighted that you plan on returning in the future and if you need any assistance making a booking we are more than happy to help. Sarah, Customer Support

We had a great two weeks at the Hideaway, weather was great so out walking every day. Cottage very warm and comfortable for two, nice sitting out area also. We had very nice meals out at Henley's in town (walkable) also the food was good at India restaurant. Would definitely stay here again.

My partner and I had a wonderful stay at the Hideaway. It truly felt like a little home from home, with all of its little home comforts and useful equipment. It was ideally located to explore all of West Cornwall. We both look forward to our next visit, for we will definitely be returning.

We had a fabulous holiday in a beautiful cottage that was perfect for two. The owners are very friendly and welcoming. Made our holiday just perfect. We'd certainly return.

It is comfortable and cosy, ideal for couples on single people, near to main amenities but still quiet!

A lovely cottage, beautifully clean, very peaceful, very handy for local amenities and a joy to stay in !

A perfect stay in a lovely cottage, with everything we needed. Ideal location for exploring the Lizard Peninsula

We have visited this area over the past years and this cottage is a gem. I will stay again

Very beautuful cottage, very well decorated, laid out with everything you need. Beautiful personal touches and easy to use gagets and appliances. Very very clean and well organised. Perfect location to local amenities. Close to 24 hour tesco, petrol station, post office, bank, phone box, cash machine, many pubs for a drink or food and lots of shops. Many places to explore and visit. So many things to see and do from museums and historical sites, harboursides, beaches, national trust parks, and family days out. Very friendly owners and helpful and kind. Definatly recomend and definatly booking again.

This property was perfect for us, warm, cosy and high standard of facilities. Close to Helston 15min walk. Was nice to have a welcome pack of milk, tea and cookies as we hadn't yet shopped. The owners were lovely and would highly recommend to family & friends and keeping the details for future visits.

We're so pleased to see that you enjoyed your stay, and hope that you'll be coming back to the area again soon. Tanya, Customer Support

Friendly, welcoming owners. Cottage in a good location for amenities in Helston and easy access to SW coastal path. Would recommend Henley's and Guiseppe's for meals in Helston (walkable), fish and chips from Jane's ( 5 mins walk) and The Blue Anchor for an old fashioned pub.

Perfect for a couple wet room a bonus for the less abled.

It's great to see The Hideaway worked well for you. We do encourage any guests with mobility concerns to give our team a call so that we chat through what you might be looking for. Tanya, Customer Support

Beautiful, perfectly sized cottage in ideal location for walking and visiting beaches in the local area. Kate and Nigel were the perfect hosts and enabled us to have a wonderful holiday

We had a lovely time at the cottage and it was excellent for our purposes. We had travelled to Cornwall to see an exhibition at Tate St Ives and were able to get there easily and quickly. We were particularly pleased with the convenience of the location to get to see and do what we wanted. The cottage is compact but has an airy quality because of the high ceiling.It is tastefully decorated and very well equipped. The weather was not warm enough to sit in the private and sheltered garden which was disappointing !! We would definitely return as we love the area and this was a convenient and comfortable bolthole to return to each day. Kate and Nigel were very nice, helpful and unobtrusive---very good hosts.

We had a lovely relaxing time at the Hideaway cottage.The facilities were excellent,very cosy for the two of us,would definitely recommend to anyone.We did not have to travel far to get to the coastal towns or the shops in Helston. We loved it.

Helston is a good location for visits to both peninsulas of South Cornwall.

Great cottage for a couple for exploring Cornwall!

A lovely place to stay, easy access to the coast & amenities. A nice warm welcome from the owners. Peaceful & quiet, will definately go again.

It's really a lovely hidden Place

Second visit and will to returning next year.

Any couple who want a break away from it all The Hideaway is perfect - so relaxing and within a short distance of some excellent restaurants, especially in Porthleven.

The Hideaway was exactly as described, a sweet little cottage for a couple. We found everything we needed. We enjoyed having our breakfast in the sweet little garden. The owners were very welcoming. The place was very quiet and a good spot to explore the area.

Liked the peace and quiet,and a lovely place to return to at the end of the day. Found skirting boards very dusty also behind tv .several cobwebs on ceiling and also between furniture.i think the housekeeper should get her duster out as she is not doing the cottage justice.

Thanks so much for your review - we're so sorry that you found some cobwebs and dust, and only wish that you'd mentioned it to us or the neighbouring Owners during your stay so that we could put matters right for you. Nevertheless, these areas will be thoroughly checked and no doubt the usually very high standard will be restored. Tanya, Customer Support

We found it to be a perfect location for exploring both the Lizard and Land's End peninsulas.

Really liked the small garden at the back - lovely to be able to open the back door on a fine day, and look out. Very peaceful and private.

Quiet and central location. Welcoming hosts.

Idea basis, I will return later in year or next Spring.

We loved our stay at The Hideaway. It was beautifully furnished and included all the equipment you needed to make food. The woodburner was a real luxury and we enjoyed having it on most evenings. We will definitely return to the cottage and enjoy even more of the local area.

We had a lovely Christmas holiday week, though the weather was not good this did not spoil the stay. After a day exploring it was good to return to a warm cottage, that was light and welcoming, the option to light a fire in the woodburner if required. The cottage was in walking distance to Helston which had plenty of attractions, and in easy driving distance to local villages, beaches and interesting walks in the area.

Our second stay at this lovely little property - a lovely cosy cottage for a winter stay!

This is a little gem, hidden away. What you get is what you see in the photos. The details for "how to find" are spot on. thank you

A very modern and well equipped small apartment. Charming location , with friendly owners.

An excellent spot, lovely little cottage, great way of spending a week down in Cornwall!

A real gem! Perfect location for exploring the beautiful southwest. Would stay here again!

Very happy with Hideaway Cottage. Small but adequate for two people, well furnished and equipped. Good sheltered patio garden which was ideal for eating. Owners (neighbours) helpful but unobtrusive.

Beautifully presented little cottage - exactly as described. Quality furnishings and everything we needed for a short break, would happily re-book and recommend to others. Patio garden really pleasant and lovely to spend time outside.

A very nice place centrally located but calm. A very good and relaxing shower. The sun grows warm the garden in the mornings for having breakfast outside and it's still sunny in the evenings. A good place for enamoured couples because of its limited size. Some place for suitcases or shoes would be fine to keep the appartment cosy during the stay. Warm welcome by houseowners (flowers, tea and biscuits were placed on the table).

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.
