Apple Loft Cottage has everything you might need to ensure a great getaway. Coupled with this it is in a most convenient position being close to some pretty special coastal walks and amazing beaches. From a practicality point of view Penzance is only a couple of miles distant and has a whole range of supermarkets to choose from.
Mrs Kijviriya-Evans August 2023
Apple Loft Cottage is the perfect place to stay and as a family, we found it full equipped for our needs.
A very cozy cottage with a feature log burner for relaxing nights in.
Mr Best June 2023
Spacious living space in a quiet location.
Generally well equipped.
The accommodation is shared with other lets, we unfortunately had noisy neighbours.
Location good for visiting attractions around Penzance.
We found the mattresses were uncomfortable.
The track to the property has some deep portholes.

Very friendly people around. We had a phonecall with the owner to make it possible to see the main Nancealverne House and meeting the gardener was quite enjoying.

Mrs Pepperell May 2022
Pretty cottage in an attractive location, well placed for enjoying the fantastic Cornish coast and countryside and within easy walking distance of Penzance Excellent value for money
Ms Griffin October 2021
Lovely cottage to stay, well equipped, warm, cosy and comfortable. Close to beaches and amenities and would highly recommended.
Mrs Lindon August 2021
Apple Loft is spacious, clean and had all the amenities you could possible wish for. In a great location, there is something for everyone nearby, whether it be a national landmark, a quiet beach, a beautiful walk or something a bit more exciting for the kids. The cottage was home from home and we didn't want to leave. Our 4th time using classic cottages and it didn't disappoint.
Mrs Barrett July 2021
A wonderful property in a great location. I would certainly recommend.
Mrs Barker June 2021
A charming cottage but as we have found in the past, owners do not really care about details and the general public usually accept things as they are which is why properties and property owners never improve. They make their money but don't really care.

We're really sorry to see you feel that way as generally we find our cottage owners are keen to offer the best experience they can to guests. Despite this, we're pleased that you found the cottage charming and were reassured to see your report that it met your expectations overall. Tanya, Customer Support
Ms Shuttleworth June 2021
It was brilliant being able to share the Garden space with extended family in Nancealverne House. Great fresh salad Made Available from the on site Gardeners. We loved to be able to walk into Penzance and Newlyn but then return to the peace of the cottage. A barbecue would have been good. And a croquet set for the lawn on Nancealverne House would have been perfect.

Thanks for taking the time to leave a review and we're so pleased that you enjoyed your time at Apple Loft Cottage - those salads sound incredible - you can't get much fresher than that! We'll pass on your suggestions with regards to providing a barbecue and croquet set to the owners for their consideration and we do hope we get to welcome you back again soon.

Mrs Whetton May 2021
Beautifully presented and equipped cottage, ideal for 3 or 4 adults as well as families. Bedrooms are quirky with odd windows and small en suites due to the roof space but suited us perfectly. Wonderfully quiet location, access road is in need of attention but easy access for the A30 and all that West Cornwall has to offer. We thought being ahead of May half term Cornwall would be a bit quieter - we were wrong - certainly for 2021 book everything in advance - St Michael’s Mount, Minack visit (try and catch ‘Billy’s’ turn on stage giving you a potted history - on certain days only), Museums/Galleries/restaurants/Pubs etc - luckily we had booked some and had a fab meal at 2 Fore St Mousehole. Nearest pub only doing takeaway so didnt try it. Parking also a problem in most places. We had mixed weather and managed to book a wet afternoon visit at Penlee Galeery in Penzance - a superb exhibition of the Newlyn School. Decided to visit St Ives on way home - parked at Carbis Bay and got the train in - St Ives was topped up so we had a quick look round and left. If all properties are this good would definitely book with Classic Cottages again.
Mrs Bigland May 2021
It was very well thought out. All the equipment was where you expected it to be in the kitchen. Condiments and wood much appreciated. Also posh hair dryer! All made for a happy stay. Thank you.
Mr Briggs April 2021
Apple Loft Cottage was a real find. It was clean, comfortable and well stocked with everything you might need to make your stay an enjoyable one. Where instructions were required (heating, water and the induction hob) they were readily available and clear and concise. The wood burner was put to good use and was so enjoyable to watch that it replaced the TV, very relaxing - re-stocking the wood was simple, it's right outside in the courtyard. The property location was away from any form of road noise ensuring a peaceful and restful break and the outside space was well designed and comfortable - our Springer Flo loved it as did we.
Would we go back? ...... absolutely!
Mrs Dodd October 2020
A well located cottage just off the A30 but with an undisturbed feel and limited traffic noise. Easy access into Penzance (15 min walk) for shops, coastal path and running/cycling routes. Lovely accommodation with good variety of cooking equipment in the kitchen, fantastic open plan area downstairs, comfortable sofa and beds, a selection of games and a utility space for coats and shoes with back door access when arriving back wet and dirty! Highly recommended for a family of 4 or 5.
Mr O Brien October 2020
It’s a lovely property with open plan living but very comfortable. Very private courtyard and set in lovely grounds.
Mrs Rowdon September 2020
A charming property situated in the grounds of a lovely estate. Ideal holiday let for dog owners.

Mrs Davie September 2020
Very clean but be aware of cars with very low suspension as track up to the cottage is full of potholes.
Miss Dance August 2020
The cottage is in a perfect location for those wanting to explore the far south west of Cornwall. We were never more than half an hour away from excellent beaches and attractions. It's in a peaceful location too, so can guarantee a good night's sleep! The occasional owl woke us up but we found that exciting rather than annoying.
Mrs Davie March 2020
A very comfy & welcoming holiday cottage. It must be if we have rented it 6 times now!!
Ms Simpson December 2019

Mr Bright May 2019
Great location in a quiet surrounding but close to town for amenities. Very nicely decorated to a great standard, very homely feel. Fantastic communication from the housekeeper also. Wouldn’t hesitate to book again. Great overall experience.
Mrs Taylor March 2019
The cottage was really well equipped and very convenient for Penzance. It was an ideal base for 2 couples.
Mrs Davie March 2019
Apple Loft is an extremely comfortabe cottage. Well kept & spotless whenever we have arrived. The housekeeper is always very efficient if any problems arise. It is in a very convenient spot for days out & although Apple Loft looks quite isolated, it is only 3 mins by car to supermarkets. We are quite fussy, and still like to feel homely when away. That is whywe keep going back to Apple Loft.
Ms Simpson December 2018
Really lovely dog friendly cottage - warm and spacious, extremely clean and very well equipped. Excellent log burner, with logs included. Great kitchen- good double oven and induction hob. Perfect for a Christmas escape - we really enjoyed the fizz and mince pies, thank you. We look forwrd to staying at this cottage again.

Home from home. Very well laid out. Open plan, newly refurbished. Good quality fixtures & fittings. Decent shower. Very peaceful location with walks in the grounds. Ideal for visiting Lizard, Lands End and St Ives area, plus Helston River and beautifaul Trebah gardens & beach (dog friendly).

Mr Cleverdon March 2017
Quality cottage in a great location. Excellent that dogs were allowed too and wish we could have stayed a bit longer.
Mrs Clements October 2016
We had a wonderful week in this cottage - have booked again next April!! The cottage is really lovely and very comfortable. The property was very well thought out and I appreciated the details like the lovely Emma Bridgewater mugs to use and the blackout blinds in the bedrooms. We enjoyed the easy to use fire and it is a fantastic family space. The location is great for all that far west Cornwall has to offer. We could have easily moved in permanently!! Can't wait until we get there again.
Mr Arthurs September 2016
Cottage was fabulous would definitely recommend ??
Miss Ben-Accom August 2016
We've had a wonderful holiday, in the most peaceful location. It was so easy to get everywhere being outside of the towns & villages but very easy to walk into Penzance or Newlyn. Thank you.x
