Mrs Weate April 2018
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.
Ms Gerle August 2017
Helston is a good location for visits to both peninsulas of South Cornwall.
Mr Van Den Berg July 2017

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.
Mrs Haber August 2016
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.
Mr Rowlands July 2016
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
Mr Oconnell May 2016
We found it to be a perfect location for exploring both the Lizard and Land's End peninsulas.
Mrs Menting May 2016
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.
Mr House April 2016

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.
Mrs Young December 2015
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
Mr Aylmer-Brewin October 2015

Mr Holt July 2015

Miss Wykes July 2015

Mr Brown July 2015
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.
Mrs Thomas June 2015
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.
Ms Meyer June 2015
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).
