Mackerel Sky is a very comfortable, cosy and pretty cottage located in a quite and peaceful setting. Suitable for couples . The property was very well stocked with any equipment needed during our stay. Sennan Cove is a short drive away , would recommend watching the sunset there , got some beautiful photos and also recommend a show at the Minack Theatre.

Mrs Tuffin May 2021
Lovely comfortable cottage great location for coastal walks via cot valley. Sunny position with nice outside area to sit/eat. Bus stops outside property to St Ives and Penzance which saves on parking.

A hidden gem near St Just - the cottage was very clean and decorated to a high standard especially the walk in shower. The owners were very friendly and helpful. First cottage we have been too where we did not receive a welcome pack! Bens Mum was lovely and so informative of the area and all the fabulous walks. Shame about the weather!!

We're so pleased to see that you had a great stay, with plenty of opportunities to explore the area. We have had to scale back on the usual welcome trays in the last 12 months to comply with guidance on Covid management, but these are slowly being reintroduced so we're sure the next time you stay, you will be able to enjoy this again.

A lovely cottage in a great location.

Our stay at Mackerel Sky was our first 'escape' during the bad year of Covid 19 and as we are over 70 it was with some trepidation that we booked the accommodation. However, our concerns were dispelled very quickly during our stay and we thoroughly enjoyed the cottage which is so well positioned and maintained and ideal for walking down to the coast. In more summery weather (we stayed in early October) the patio area would have been perfect for eating outside and relaxing. Did we enjoy it? Well, we've booked for next year!

Mr Byram August 2020
It was a shame we couldn’t meet the owners due to your instructions at classic, we received a lovely card explaining why from the owners, maybe next time.. tv seem to be effected by the rain in room and bedroom it didn’t bother us but some tv addicts could have a gripe, also towel rail in bathroom didn’t come on but we managed with extra towels we brought.. everything else perfect.

Had a great holiday there was everything we needed
Mr Woodruff May 2019
Mackeral Sky was the perfect cottage for us as a couple to stay and enjoy the Cornish countryside. It is close to St Just which has all of the basic services to help fit us up for the week. The cottage was clean and well appointed with modern appliances and furniture. Wifi worked perfectly. An extra bonus was that it has a walk-in-closet that was plenty big enough to store all of our luggage and keep it out of site. We would recommend Mackeral Sky for any couple wishing to explore Cornwall.
Mr Charlesworth March 2019
An excellent location, an immaculate cottage, private parking and garden. Amenities are all within driving distance and the town of ST Just is beautiful. If you are looking to visit this area of Cornwall this would be a lovely place to stay.
Miss West October 2018
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.

Our second visit to a great property in a great place. Everything just right for an enjoyable holiday.
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
Lovely cottage perfectly situated for a break exploring West Cornwall. Clean and well appointed, would happily book again.
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!

A perfect Cornish hideaway cottage for two.

We had a truly fantastic stay in Mackerel Sky. The cottage is absolutely lovely, with a great location, very well equipped, maintained and nice and private.
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.
Mrs Toms June 2015
