This is the 3rd time we have stayed at Mackeral Sky. It is a beautifully presented property and never fails to disappoint us. Exceptionally clean and tidy. Very well equipped. Excellent location to explore this part of Cornwall.
Mr Ball May 2018
A lovely size cottage for two with a good, large, shower and useful outside space when the weather is warm. The cream tea on arrival was very welcome. Owners very helpful and are onsite if any problems arise.

Perfect getaway for two in an ideal location.
Mrs Jones April 2017
A beautiful modern immaculate cottage. Everything you could possibly need and more is supplied in the excellently equipped kitchen. Loved the private garden and sun trap patio with the sunloungers. There is even a barbecue to use and an outside table and chairs for alfresco dining. A beautiful haven to come back to after hard trecks along the gorgeous coastal paths. Cot Valley is only a short walk away and a lovely place to watch the seals. In a brilliant location for exploring Cornwall. Bex and Ben, the owners, were brilliant and on hand if needed with any queries. They also supplied a box full of useful places to visit,walks, maps etc., which was great. We will definitely recommend to friends and will return.

Miss Andoe June 2016
Mackerel Sky is very comfortable and well-equipped, easy to get to - 15-20 mins drive from Penzance - yet very peaceful. The walk through the Cot Valley to the sea is lovely and the coast path nearby has some of the best views in Cornwall. I thoroughly enjoyed my holiday here and look forward to returning.
Mr Starling June 2016

Also worked well with a 9 month old.

Mr Cole July 2015
We had a fantastic holiday. It's a great base to enjoy walks, cycling, eating out, sightseeing. Very close to local shops and pubs/ places to eat in St Just. Our hosts were lovely. Very welcoming yet discreet. Gorgeous bread and cream tea on arrival. Fresh flowers too! A very special place. Well thought out and quite luxurious!

Mrs Larkin June 2015
Exactly as advertised. Provided everything we needed. Cream tea on arrival very much appreciated after a long journey. Fabulous location within easy reach of beaches, shops, pubs etc. Very peaceful spot with lovely local walks. Would love to return one day. Couldn't find any faults with Mackerel Sky - just wish we lived a little nearer. Even the weather was glorious. Cornwall has always been one of our favourite holiday spots.
