Another wonderful stay at Garden Cottage. The perfect place to relax and unwind.

Wow thank you Jude & Tom for welcoming us to your stunning property. Fabulous house so spacious and fantastic light flooding in from the huge windows and yet it felt so cosy and warm. Situated conveniently for exploring the local area. Highly recommend. Thank you.

A thoroughly enjoyable stay in a superb cottage located conveniently for all the major attractions in South West Cornwall. We'd have no hesitation in recommending the Garden Cottage.

Lovely cottage and wonderful friendly owners. No more to say.

This was our second visit to the Garden Cottage and hopefully will not be our last. Excellent location ,very quiet with a beautiful garden and fantastic roof terrace with views of Mounts Bay. Many walks can be taken directly from the property or you can take advantage of the local bus service that stops in Madron. The Garden Cottage has everything you need to have a wonderful relaxing stay in a beautiful part of Cornwall.

A perfect cottage in a good location, the views from the balcony upstairs are great, the whole cottage is tastefully laid out, we hope to return again in the near future.

Onsite owners who are helpful but not intrusive, friendly and an absolute wealth of local knowledge . The property is in a beautiful quiet location with idyllic views,however it isn't within easy walking distance of Penzance, not that it spoiled our holiday but something to be aware of.

We are overjoyed that you had a wonderful stay in this beautiful and quiet location! The Garden Cottage is around 1.7 miles from Penzance, so this can be made into a short drive or a slightly longer walk if you'd prefer. We hope to welcome you back in future. Meg, Customer Support

Excellent property with very friendly owners who are willing to help with advice on the area. Accommodation is by far one of the best we have stayed in, well equipped, clean, comfy bed, everything you could possibly want. Views are amazing either overlooking garden or from the upstairs balcony you can see St Michael's Mount. Thank you Jude and Tom for providing a very pleasant and comfortable 'home from home' accommodation, thoroughly enjoyed our stay

Garden Cottage is a stunning holiday home - incredibly stylish, bright, spacious and comfortable, with a wonderful outlook onto a mature and secluded garden. Our expectations were high from the website description, but we found the reality even better, with no niggles at all. We came back from our fairly active week feeling totally relaxed and renewed, and hope to be able to return in the future. Jude and Tom are the perfect hosts - friendly, informative and unobtrusive, but on hand whenever required. We found Penzance a really interesting town with much to do nearby, though we could equally well have spent a totally relaxing holiday just taking in the garden and the views.

Thanks so much for your wonderful review. We're ever so pleased that you thought Garden Cottage was stunning, and even more pleased to hear that you enjoyed the fabulous garden this property has to offer. We are thrilled that you left feeling relaxed and we would be so happy to welcome you back in the future. Meg, Customer Support

The Garden Cottage is a stunning, well appointed holiday home in beautiful grounds and the owners very kind and welcoming. We were delighted to stay in this property and the location is great for exploring Penzance and the far West of Cornwall. There are lovely walks in the gardens at Trengwainton nearby.

The Garden Cottage is an exceptional modern property in a superb setting.

Our 5th visit so June and Tom must be doing something right! A super property with a fantastic garden. We had a week of super weather so we're able to make use of the decking and garden. As usual the owners are on hand but unobtrusive, but is nice to know they are there should you need them. We visited old haunts as well as new ones and would recommend the cafes at Tremenhere, Trewidden Gardens and superb fish and chips at The Tinners Arms at Zennor, seafood at Mackerel Sky, Newlyn , Peppercorn cafe at Perranuthnoe and lovely cream tea at Lamorna pottery (check opening times at all these as even in June som cwere closed on certain days) Also recommend the walk up to Sancreed Beacon, Chysauster, walk from Botallack to Levant, walk between 2 car parks at Godrevy, Minack Theatre (need to book a timed ticket for a visit) trewaigton Gardens along the road well worth a visit and they are offering full menu at the cafe now and they have a lovely second hand bookshop in the gardeners cottage.

Thank you so much for all of those wonderful suggestions, they'll be so handy for future guests. We're delighted that you are still enjoying your visits to The Garden Cottage. Donna, Customer Support

A fantastic cottage and beautiful gardens. We can not think of a better place to stay.

Had a wonderful stay. Perfect for couples who want a peaceful break. The property was stunning with amazing views of St Michaels Mount. The nearby village of Marazion was wonderful, can recommend the Cutty sark restaurant for an evening meal and Fire Engine pub for a great Sunday roast with a sea view. Would highly recommend this property

The Garden cottage is spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Set in a large garden it is quiet and peaceful. Near to supermarkets and easy reach to South and North coasts.

This was a superb cottage, very modern and well equipped. We managed to hit the coldest week of the year but were very snug and well looked after. Unfortunately the weather prevented us from making the most of the outside garden area ( rain, hail, sleet and snow with a significant wind chill), but we look forward to enjoying outside in the future.

Reply from Classic Cottages

Thanks so much for your lovely review. We're thrilled that you enjoyed your stay, though such a shame that the cold snap meant you couldn't make the most of the beautiful garden. It's great that you kept snug and warm - we're looking forward to welcoming you back in the warmer weather. Julie, Customer Support

The Garden Cottage is a beautifully designed modern house finished to a very high specification, and is by some way the best one bedroom holiday accommodation we've ever booked. Both the bedroom and living area are wonderfully spacious, as are the kitchen's work areas and the dining table. The bed is extremely comfortable and the bathroom, particularly the shower, very well appointed. We could imagine, had we not been staying in November, making good use of the balcony, deck, and garden areas, which were well furnished and easily accessed via several patio doors. The views of the garden, and more distant panoramas over Mounts Bay, were beautiful and conducive to relaxation. Heating was effective and easily adjusted. Tom and Jude are friendly and considerate hosts, for whom nothing is too much trouble. The house's situation is perfect for exploring the whole of West Penwith, whether on foot, cycle, or by car, and the parking is very convenient. In summary, we haven't enjoyed a week away more for a very long time. And if you like Nepalese food, the Taj Mahal in Penzance is 10 minutes away and equally good!

Our 5th stay at Garden Cottage. I suspect it won't be our last!

What a place to enjoy West Cornwall, the Garden Cottage is a fantastic property, the views of Mount Bay are unbelievable, especially from the bedroom balcony. Everything is provided to enjoy the holiday and the hosts, Jude and Tom were very welcoming and let us know if we needed anything to knock on their door (next door). We had such a great two weeks and would love to come back next year (only problem would be that we are bringing our new puppy so maybe not), anyway it is the best holiday property my wife and I have stayed in, can't recommend staying here enough. Also great to get away from the crowds and back to thid peace place, also a perfect base for visits to St. Ives, Carbis Bay, Marazion, Penzance, Sennen, list goes on.

We thoroughly enjoyed our summer holiday at The Garden Cottage. Spacious and airy rooms, nice decor and lovely floral arrangements inside and outside make it easy to relax and unwind. Jude and Tom are very helpful and welcoming owners. We have grown fond of this part of the far west and this property - this was our 5th stay at The Garden Cottage and we are already looking forward to next time.

An excellent property for two people. The Garden Cottage came highly recommended by my sister who has stayed there on numerous occasions. All the space and comfort of a much larger property but with bedroom facilities just right for two. The cottage is peaceful and private but the friendly owners were nearby should we need anything.

Reply from Classic Cottages

We're thrilled your sister highly recommended The Garden Cottage to you and pleased you found this gorgeous contemporary property perfect for two. We very much hope to welcome you back again in the future. Kelsey, Customer Support

The property is excellent, very clean, modern, comfortable and well equipped, everything you would need or want for a holiday accommodation. The hosts are very friendly and welcoming. Can not recommend this accommodation highly enough.

So lucky our stay at the Garden Cottage coincided with some fabulous early spring weather - but even if it had been pouring with rain or bitterly cold, we would have have been happy just to be in this delightful home.

The 'cottage' is a perfect escape: so comfortable, thoughtfully equipped, it is private and secluded, has fabulous views, and, best of all, its design really adds to a feeling of relaxation, peace and tranquility - letting the garden and light flood in, it really is very special, and Jude and Tom are the most kind and welcoming hosts.

Ideally placed for great walking, sights, and some great places to eat out locally. We particularly enjoyed The Shore in Penzance - a unique dining experience, the Victoria Inn in Perranuthnoe - which combined with scenic walking from Marazion to Prussia Cove was a treat, and the Porthminster Beach Cafe in St Ives.

A holiday home we would enthusiastically return to!

We stayed for five nights and were more than pleased with the standard of accommodation .Everything we needed for our stay was there. Peaceful, with a lovely garden and fabulous views towards Marizion and St Michaels Mount. We had a great time and will be back !

We thoroughly enjoyed our week at Garden Cottage. It had everything we needed for a relaxing holiday. Amazing views from every window. The property is equipped and furnished to a high standard. Loved the log burner for cosy evenings in. Great location to visit Lands End, Lizard Point, St Michael’s Mount and gorgeous villages such as Mousehole. Jude and Tom made us very welcome, we appreciated the snacks and drinks - thank you! We intend to visit again and would highly recommend this property.

Very modern and in a peaceful location. Owners live next door and are friendly and helpful . Good location for visiting both coasts. We had a wonderful 10 days at the Garden Cottage and looking forward to returning.

Stunning cottage kitted out to a very high standard with beautiful garden and views . Owners can’t do enough to make sure your stay is perfect from the warm welcome and lovely hamper . Wouldn’t hesitate to book again .

Fantastic stay at Garden Cottage as always. Already looking forward to next time.

A nice welcome from the owners and we had a great week at the Garden Cottage and will be coming back.

This was our third visit to this gem of a place - we never tend to go back to the same place more than once but having found The Garden Cottage four or five years ago, we were totally blown away by the standard of the accommodation and the lovely owners who have created this beautiful house. We love staying here so much that we've just booked for a fourth time!

We enjoyed our stay in this beautiful cottage. It is a marvellous place, airy, stylish and cosy. Thanks to Jude and Tom for having us (fouth time) - you are amazing hosts. We look forward to our next holiday at the Garden Cottage.

A really relaxing holiday, very private garden. Modern, spacious and light property which is lovely to live in. We would definitely go back for another week.

Wonderful contemporary property set in stunning gardens and perfect for relaxing in. No shortage of great views and spots to enjoy them from. Thanks to the lovely owners Jude and Tom for letting us enjoy this unique treasure.

A fantastic holiday home, a real pleasure to stay there.

This was our 4th stay at Garden Cottage and the same standard of cleanliness, furnishings etc was just as high. The Cottage is so comfortable and extremely spacious and really well located for trips out to St Ives, Lamorna, Mousehole, Penzance or The Lizard. We would thoroughly recommend it and Jude and Tom are just next door should you need anything.

What can we say after going back again and again on a yearly basis, to this cottage.

Exceeded expectations. Fabulous spacious well equipped property with amazing views and outside spaces Very helpful hosts

This is the second time we have stayed at The Garden Cottage, the first being about 4 years ago. We very rarely revisit a place we've already stayed as there are so many lovely places on the Classic Cottages website to choose from but when we saw that it was available we knew we had to go back again and we are so glad we did! Despite storm Aidan's best efforts to scupper our stay, we managed to get in some amazing coastal walks and we're lucky enough to get through them in the dry - we certainly had the cobwebs blown out though!! Back at The Garden Cottage, we were so cosy and warm, listening to the wind and rain outside battering the nearby coastline. The 'Cottage' (it really is so much more than that!) was even better than we remembered first time round - very well equipped with everything you need for the perfect stay and a very comfy bed for a great night's sleep after all the walking we did. A much needed break just before the second lockdown was announced!

Lovely owner

Just perfect! We’ve already rebooked for next year and can’t wait to return. Thank you Jude and Tom for a wonderful week at your beautiful property.

Wonderful cottage, with all the facilities included you could ask for. Welcoming owners, friendly and helpful if required. Would strongly recommend a visit.

Fabulous! Can't wait for next time.

We have stayed here three times now twice in summer and once for Christmas. Always happy to come back. It's a pleasure to stay here and explore this part of Cornwall.

Beautiful place. Wouldn’t call it a cottage as such as it was light airy and very spacious. Owners lovely but kept their space. Gardens fabulous. Outside space fantastic.

Really beautiful house with great facilities and views . It was great and would definitely go back

Lovely stay, appreciated the welcome pack. Owners very helpful. Great location, very quiet and peaceful but close to amenities.

Jude and Tom are the perfect hosts - warm, friendly and very helpful.

Second time staying at this superb property, and already booked again.

Wonderful property in a wonderful location. This year was our second time at Garden Cottage and we have already booked for 2020

This was our third stay at the beautiful Garden Cottage and I think that says it all. Jude and Tom are very lovely people and perfect hosts. It feels like a home from home and we just love all about it: tasteful decor, rooms flooded with light, gorgeous garden and amazing views over Mount´s Bay day and night. We like hiking along the stunning coast line and visit gardens and little fishing villages. There are loads of beautiful places in the far west we have grown fond of during the last years, but our Cornwall holidays would not be complete without this marvellous and unique Cottage.

Garden Cottage is a ight filled, modern, spacious property thoughtfully placed to maximise the glorious garden. With views to the open countryside and the sea beyond you are drawn to sit outside and immerse yourself in tranquil birdsong. The inside is a joy, where the view from every window underscores just how beautifully situated this tasteful property is. The hosts are friendly and welcoming but unobtrusive. A total gem of a place.

Perfect. Really enjoyed our stay. The owners are on hand next door but it feels very private. Lovely views of St Michael's Mount.

This is our 3rd stay at The Garden Cottage and won't be our last. The property is beautifully presented and so light, airy and warm and the garden and the views, especially from the roof terrace, are superb. Jude and Tom gave us a warm welcome as usual and they are there if you need them but totally unobtrusive. West Penwith is one of our favourite parts of Cornwall and we always feel totally relaxed while we are down there. We will certainly be back

Reply from Classic Cottages

We're over the moon that you returned for your third stay and it sounds as though it won't be your last! We couldn't agree more - West Penwith is a magical part of Cornwall and The Garden Cottage is the perfect base from which to explore it. Hopefully see you soon! Tressa, Customer Support

Enjoyed our holiday at Garden Cottage. Excellant, well designed property, with beautiful gardens and views over Penzance.

I would love to leave a review about how amazing it was but then I probably won't be able to book it again because it will be full! :-)

It's great to hear you had such a wonderful time at The Garden Cottage overall. Don't delay! Our friendly booking office team are on hand 7 days a week to secure your perfect holiday for next time! Bryony, Customer Support

This was our second visit to The Garden Cottage and as my husband said as we drove up "It's like coming home." We love everything about it and Jude and Tom were as welcoming as ever. We will certainly go again.

This was our second stay at the Garden Cottage and it was as amazing as last year. We loved the views over Mount's Bay and the gorgeous garden around the house. It is a quiet and cosy place. Rooms are flooded with light and the decor is great. We cannot think of a better holiday home as it is close to great places like St Ives or nice walks along the coast path but far off the hustle and bustle. We would love to stay again.

A stunning property, the photographs do not do it justice. The owners were friendly but unobtrusive. We had an excellent holiday.

This is a perfect holiday location, beautifully appointed, every comfort, lovely hosts, a little oasis close to the sea. We have stayed here once before and the second visit didnt disappoint. We will be booking again very soon! Fabulous holiday location, everything you could want, amazing garden and really friendly owners who live next door but are not intrusive, just lovely. Thoroughly recommended

Spacious, comfortable and well-equipped house, brilliant large garden and outside area. Very friendly and helpful owners. Loved the artwork and stylish decor. Tasty scones and wine to welcome us and lots of little touches - everything provided for a week's stay didn't have to buy any household supplies.

Perfect would definitely recommend and stay again

Garden Cottage is absolutely stunning. The space and light are amazing, we couldn’t quite believe that it was ours for a week! The views over to St. Michael’s Mount were a joy to behold in all of nature’s different lights and moods. Accommodation was first class with everything we needed for an unforgettable holiday in this beautiful part of the country. Thanks to Tom and Jude for the privilege.

Our second stay at Garden Cottage and it is still as beautiful as before. The setting is perfect with lovely views of St Michael's Mount and the location is very quiet and peaceful. Jude and Tom are very helpful and you know they are there if you need them but they are not obtrusive. We have already reserved a week for next year

We’ve spent many holidays in Cornwall. This is the best property we’ve ever rented. Absolutely loved it.

We enjoyed our week at the Garden Cottage. The cottage is modern, clean, comfortable and in a good location for visiting several places in West Cornwall and for walking the costal paths. Thank you to Jude, who is very welcoming and we would definitely return when we holiday in the area again.

This property is just incredible! From the moment that we arrived this property continued to overwhelm us with the sheer beauty that the building offered. The facilities were top notch, with a stunning rain shower and incredible sea views overlooking Penzance and across to St Michaels Mount and Marazion. Baring in mind we went over the Christmas/New year crossover, at times when the weather was a bit glum this did not phase us because staying in at this property was an attraction in itself. We were like two little children in toy shops going around each room and discovering each delightful corner it welcomed us with. On top of this, the owners Tom and Jude were extremely helpful and welcoming. We often requested logs and kindling to top up the beautifully designed and well heated log burner, and never felt like we were a chore. We actually spent the new year eve with them and equally made is as special to us as it was for them. We're looking forward to returning very soon, to discover even more wonderful parts of Cornwall. Thank you very much for letting us stay.

Best place we have stayed in Cornwall has the wow factor we would go back.

Second visit and enjoyed it just as much as the first.Lovely Jude and Tom welcomed us as friends and the property was exactly as we remembered.Warm and cosy as the weather wasnt the best but having said that we saw some very dramatic seas!Always nice to get back to our very own bolt hole though.We will be back it really is perfect!

The Garden Cottage was everything we wanted and could have hoped for. We spent a wonderful week exploring the North Cornish coast line which is both dramatic and stunning. Returning to the Garden Cottage at the end of many enjoyable days was always the icing on the cake.

The Garden Cottage is a perfect base for exploring numerous places in Cornwall and only short drives away from St Michael´s Mount or St Ives. We loved the cosy rooms which are flooded with light even on a rainy day. It is a spacious house with great decor and a beautiful garden, yet quiet and intimate. The kitchen is well equipped and we enjoyed our breakfast in the morning sun on the terrace with stunning views over Mount´s Bay.

We had a fabulous stay in The Garden Cottage. Jude and Tom are lovely people who have created a wonderful holiday home. The property is airy and spacious with fabulous views and even when the wind is howling and the rain is crashing against the windows (June weather!); you can't help but feel relaxed. We certainly hope to return.

Tip top accommodation with lovely views and gardens. Very friendly and relaxed owners.

The service from Classic Cottages was, as always, first class - thank you. We have used your company many times and you are always extremely efficient. This was by far the best holiday accommodation we have ever stayed in and we have stayed in many! It was beautifully appointed, very clean and comfortable and the views and garden were amazing. The owners, Jude and Tom were very friendly and welcoming and just lovely people. We were blown away by this property and have already provisionally requested some dates for next year! I cannot recommend this property highly enough.

A lovely place to stay, looking forward to coming back

This is a beautiful cottage set in a secluded & private garden. With spectacular views over St Michaels Mount this is a beautifully designed modern house with everything you could want for a stay in Cornwall. The design of the house means it is both light and spacious but also cosy & private. Lots of things to do in and around Penzance, Newlyn & St Ives. I will definitely be booking again.

Fabulous location, friendly owners a real luxury gem

A very comfortable and clean property with wonderful light due to the huge windows. The morning cuppa in bed was a real must. Despite being in late December, the property was always filled with light. Very cosy and warm. Hosts nearby if needed but we felt very private. A great escape and very near to local cliff walks. We had a very relaxing time.

We had a fantastic time at The Garden Cottage. As soon as we arrived we were so impressed with the beautiful style, decor and views. Everything was spotless and comfortable and we settled in straight away. Tom and Jude were really helpful and friendly, and my partner and I loved every minute of our stay. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend and would definitely visit again! Thanks for everything.

We were incredibly pleased with our stay and the property exceeded all of our expectations.

The hosts on arrival and departure were professional and friendly. Handy to have next door if needed but we did not need them.

Very well equipped and clean .....perfect and a a big thank you

The first cottage we've ever stayed at that looked great in the photographs but even better when we got there! Perfect for a cosy, restful stay and the views were amazing!!

Perfect stay, could not have wished for more.

This was such a lovely cottage in a great location for exploring the western tip of Cornwall. Everything you could possible need was provided and the views were wonderful. Thank you.

From the moment we arrived at this wonderful place we knew that we were going to have a great holiday.We were greeted at the door by the lovely Jude and Tom and shown into this most beautiful light and airy cottage.Quite large for a one bedroom property but everything is very tasteful and modern.The bedroom really is a dream as is the shower room.The living room and kitchen are perfect too and it was very tempting to just tootle around the property and not go out at all.The view across the garden(which is also a lovely place to dream away the time)is gorgeous and we took lots of photos across to St.Michaels Mount in various lights.All in all one of the best properties that we have ever been lucky enough to stay in.We will be back!

A truly stunning house in an incredible location. Worth booking for the view alone but the property is very comfortable too and the owners really have thought of everything. Highly recommend

We had a wonderfull stay and enjoyed our holiday so much.The hosts were very friendly and helpfull.House and garden are really amazing.Looking forward coming back ...

A fabulous property in a beautiful location.

Great location for local attractions and ease of getting around. Cottage better than the pictures with great views across to St Michael's Mount, very well equipped and spacious could not want for more. Owners are lovely and are just next door if you need anything or help with restaurants or places to see. Would highly recommend as very peaceful and relaxing. Really enjoyed our stay.

Very friendly owner. Gave us a warm welcome. We will definetly book again. The Location and cottage is a dream come true with a very spectacular view.

The Garden Cottage is a superb property which is homely and well equipped with superb views of Mounts Bay and St Michaels Mount. Very quiet location but close to Penzance, Marazion and St Ives, so an ideal base for exploring the beautiful West Penwith area. Hope to return.

Beautiful place to stay in a great location.

An excellent cottage - would recommend to anyone!

The first cottage which we have stayed in that was almost as comfortable as our home. Far too many cottages have very cheap and uncomfortable furniture, but The Garden Cottage was lovely; spacious and comfortable, light and airy. The owners were very friendly and helpful but not intrusive. Wonderful view!

A beautifully presented cottage, very quiet and comfortable.

Fabulous modern property with great views. Very comfortable to come home to after a blustery day at the coast.

We loved our week at the Garden Cottage and would definitely recommend it! It is very spacious, light, peaceful, stylishly furnished and well equipped. Conveniently located for exploring this part of Cornwall with its stunning coastline, pretty harbours and mining history. Lovely helpful owners live next door.

Can't praise this home and the owners enough. Beautiful home with attention to detail. Owners are on site and available, but not intrusive. Quiet and very comfortable, one of the nicest and well equipped homes I've stayed in.

Lovely spacious property,very modern and comfortable inside, with great views and excellent outside space to relax loved our stay.

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.
